A cold and sweet milkshake can be the perfect refreshment on a warm day, but a milkshake LĒVO-infused with marijuana is even better!
This frosty THC treat has many beneficial properties, and it is simple to make. Follow the directions below to make your own homemade infused milkshakes.
Milkshakes became popular around the turn of the 20th century, and they have been a favorite ever since. This recipe is for a milkshake made with cannamilk. In addition to the delicious flavor, it provides plenty of nutrients, antioxidants, and botanical terpenes to support your health.
Benefits of a Marijuana Milkshake
A marijuana milkshake might seem more decadent than healthy, but vanilla extract and cannamilk have many beneficial properties. Vanilla has calming effects, and it helps curb an appetite. It also has antidepressant, antitumor, and antibacterial effects. It contains magnesium and potassium as well.
Cannamilk is rich in omega fats, calcium, and protein. The terpenes infused into the milk contain a range of anti-inflammatory, anti-pain, and anti-anxiety properties. The cannamilk has a slightly nutty flavor, which works well with vanilla extract.
Before starting this recipe, you’ll need to decarb, or activate, your raw hemp or cannabis flower and infuse it to the milk to make your cannamilk.
How Do I Prepare Cannamilk?
Making cannamilk is easier than most people think, and it is especially convenient when you use a LĒVO-home infuser to activate the raw cannabis and infuse the milk. Infuse decarbed cannabis in milk at 160° – 165°F for 2-3 hours.
These steps must take place before you start the recipe. Prepare the infused milk on the same day you plan to make this recipe or a day or two before. A home infuser allows you to select the most efficient settings for activating and infusing the specific strains. The setting optimizes the potency and potential therapeutic effects of the terpenes.
You can choose whole, low-fat milk, or even almond milk. However, the higher the fat content of the milk, the better the infusion results since the fats bind to the cannabinoids- creating a true ‘infusion.’
Why is Decarbing aka Activating Important?
The decarbing and infusion processes are important for activating the psychoactive properties of cannabinoids and producing that “high” feeling.
The human body can absorb some nutrients and terpenes from raw flower, meaning cannabis that hasn’t been decarbed. The flower needs heat to convert THCa into THC and CBDa into CBD to unleash the full potential of cannabis’s psychoactive and healthful properties.
The broader range of ‘activated’ beneficial compounds can now be absorbed into the body’s systems.
