As we head into the cold winter months, what better way to medicate than with soothing cannabis infused warm beverages? With technological advancements in cannabis extractions and infusions, we’re continually finding new ways for patients to easily and effectively medicate. At Bask, we have a few options for patients to infuse their favorite warm beverage with cannabis. Below are a few of our favorite recipes!
Cannabis Infused Warm Beverage Recipes
1 cup apple cider
1 cinnamon stick
2 whole cloves
1 orange slice
Heat cider over medium-low heat in a saucepan for 5 minutes, or until you reach desired temperature. Remove from heat and add the cinnamon stick, cloves, and orange slice. Steep for 3-5 minutes then pour cider through a strainer reserving the liquid. Add cannabis infused product and stir to incorporate.
Suggest products – Howl’s Tincture, Howl’s Coconut Oil, Bask Infused Honey, or omit the orange slice and add orange flavored Drench.
1 chocolate bar, chopped
2/3 cup milk of your choice
1 pinch ground cinnamon (optional)
Heat milk in a saucepan over medium-low heat for 5 minutes, or until you reach desired temperature warm enough to melt the chocolate. Stir frequently making sure milk does not boil. Gradually add chopped chocolate bar, stirring until chocolate is fully melted. Add cannabis infused product and stir to incorporate. Top with cinnamon if desired.
Suggested products – Howl’s Tincture, *Howl’s Coconut Oil, **Bask Chocolate Bar
*If adding Howl’s Coconut Oil, stir in beverage to melt then add to blender and pulse a few times to froth. Be careful when using hot liquid in a blender as contents may build pressure.
**Bask Chocolate Bar may be used on it’s own or combined with a non-infused chocolate bar to reach desired dose.
1-2 teabags or 1 1/2 teaspoons of loose tea
Heat water and steep tea for 3-5 minutes. Discard tea bag or pour liquid through a fine mesh strainer if using loose tea. Add cannabis infused product and stir to combine.
We love using chamomile tea, green tea, apple cinnamon tea, lemon ginger tea, orange cinnamon tea, or black tea (English Breakfast, Chai, Earl Grey are some of our favorites!)
Suggested products – Bask Infused Honey, Howl’s Tincture, *Drench
*Some of our favorite Drench combos: Lemon Drench in Earl Grey or Chamomile Tea. Orange Drench in English Breakfast. Pomegranate or Raspberry Lime Drench in Green Tea.
Add Howl’s Coconut Oil to your cup of hot coffee and stir to combine. To froth, add to blender and pulse a few times. Be careful when adding hot liquids to a blender as contents may build pressure. Check out our post about the benefits of adding coconut oil to your coffee here.
As with every cannabis infused edible, it’s always best to start low and slow if you’re unsure of your desired dose. The basic rule of thumb is to start with a dose of 2.5mg of THC or less if you’re a new or inexperienced cannabis edibles consumer. It can take two hours or more to feel any effects, so if you don’t feel anything right away that’s normal. Effects can last from 4-8 hours. It’s important to note that everyone’s body is different and having a high tolerance to smoking cannabis doesn’t necessarily mean a high tolerance to cannabis edibles. This is because the THC is processed in your body differently when ingested versus inhaled.
