Yo, yo, yo! What’s good, fam? It’s your boy Dan here, droppin’ some knowledge on this dope cannabis-infused hot chocolate recipe. Picture this: you chillin’ by the fire, sippin’ on a cup of hot cocoa, and feelin’ all cozy inside. Sounds lit, right? Well, I gotchu covered with this simple recipe that’ll have you feelin’ hella relaxed on those cold winter nights.
Now, if you wanna keep it healthy, ditch that almond milk and go for some cow’s milk instead. Swap out that basic hot chocolate powder for some unsweetened cocoa powder, and replace that butter with some bomb-ass coconut oil. And if you want a touch of sweetness, you can add honey, sugar, stevia, or whatever unrefined sweetener floats your boat.
Let’s break it down real quick so you know what’s up with this cannabis-infused hot chocolate game.
First things first, you gotta choose the right strain of weed. You know, that good-good that’s gonna give you the vibes you’re lookin’ for. Indica strains are perfect for chillin’ and relaxin’ in the evening, while Sativa strains give you more of an upliftin’, cerebral high. And if you wanna find that sweet spot in between, go for a hybrid strain.
Now, listen up ’cause this part is crucial. We gotta activate the THC in our weed before we can infuse it into our hot chocolate. This process is called decarboxylation. Basically, we gotta heat up our weed to transform the non-psychoactive THCA into good ol’ THC. Just grind up your chosen strain, spread it out on a baking sheet like it’s sunbathin’, and bake it in the oven at around 220-240°F (105-115°C) for about 30-45 minutes. Easy peasy, right?
Next up, we gotta infuse that THC into a fat-based medium. For this cannacocoa, we want that fat from the milk to do its thang. So, mix together your decarbed weed, water, milk, and some coconut oil in a saucepan. The coconut oil helps the cannabinoids bind to fats ’cause they ain’t soluble in water. We wanna make sure we get all that potent goodness in our hot chocolate.
Heat up that mixture on medium heat until it’s simmerin’. But be careful, don’t let it boil like crazy ’cause we don’t want that precious THC evaporatin’ into thin air. Let it simmer for about 15-20 minutes, stirrin’ every now and then to keep the weed from stickin’ to the bottom of the pan.
While that’s goin’ on, grab yourself a mug and put in some cocoa powder or hot chocolate mix. Now it’s time to strain your cannabis mixture into the mug. Just place a coffee filter on top of the mug and pour your mixture through it. This way, you’ll get rid of any leftover plant matter and have yourself a smooth-ass hot chocolate.
Give it a good stir to blend everything together, and if you’re feelin’ extra fancy, add some whipped cream or whatever floats your boat on top. And there you have it, my friends – some bomb-ass cannabis-infused hot chocolate ready to be sipped on.
But hold up! Before you go all out on this cannacocoa journey, lemme drop some knowledge bombs on you so you stay safe and enjoy the ride.
Start with a small dose and see how your body reacts. Don’t go all crazy ’cause edibles can hit you hard. And yo, be patient! It takes time for edibles to kick in – at least a couple of hours. So don’t be chuggin’ down more hot chocolate if you ain’t feelin’ it yet.
It’s always a good idea to eat some food before indulgin’ in edibles. It helps slow down the effects and keeps you from gettin’ too messed up. And if it’s your first time tryin’ a new edible, why not share the experience with some friends? It can be hella fun.
Stay hydrated, my friends! Drink plenty of water while you’re on this cannacocoa journey. Don’t mix it with alcohol ’cause that’s a recipe for a bad time. And lastly, always calculate your dosage so you know what you’re gettin’ yourself into.
So there you have it, folks! Now you know how to make some bomb-ass cannabis-infused hot chocolate. Stay safe, stay cozy, and enjoy the ride!
