November 14, 2013
With winter approaching, the season is beginning to call for those warm drinks rather than frozen. Put away the pina coladahotchocolate mix and break out the hot chocolate! Except this year, you can have some medicated hot chocolate. This brew is sure to get you through any blizzard that Mother Nature is going to throw our way. If you’re not somewhere that the snow covers for six months out of the year, you can still enjoy this recipe on those colder nights!
1 Cup of Milk
1 tspn of butter (You can use regular butter or cannabis butter for this)
1 Cup of Water
Hot Chocolate Mix
1-2g of Marijuana
[Editor’s note: Try using almond milk and vegan margarine in replace of milk and butter, and 2 tbs unsweentened cocoa powder with a tbs of sugar in replace of hot chocolate mix to make this recipe vegan.]
Grind up the marijuana in a grinder to the finest point that it can get and add it to the water, along with the butter and milk. As always, the butter is a very important step. THC isn’t water soluble and you won’t get as stoned if you don’t add the butter. Keep the water at a minimal boil. While you want the hot chocolate to be hot, boiling the water isn’t good for the THC extraction.
Let the mixture heat up for about 10-15 minutes. After you start to smell the almost almond like smell coming from the water/butter/weed mix, get your mug and add the hot chocolate mix to it. Take the coffee filter and place it over the top of the mug. Pour the hot liquid in to the mug to strain out all of the marijuana buds. Stir the chocolate up and enjoy! You can also add some whipped cream and cinnamon if you want. This chocolate drink will keep you elevated for a night so plan on staying in!
