One of the ways that medical patients use in taking cannabis is by turning them into something they can eat, drink or something they can use to cook or mix with their food. Edibles are not really just for all the fun and wild parties, they are also used by patients who are prescribed with cannabis to help them with their condition but are still not that comfortable smoking it or using any other way to administer it.
The recipe we have today can be used in making your other food recipes. We are going to make cannabis tincture that is infused with honey. The honey is mixed with the tincture to cover up or to lessen any unpleasant flavors that the cannabis may have.
Cannabis with Honey Tincture
Ingredients and Equipment Needed
Before starting with the cooking, you need to make sure that you have the complete equipment and ingredients that you are going to need. First, prepare the things that you are going to need to make the cannabis tincture. You need to find a crock pot, cheesecloth and a string. This recipe does not require lots of ingredients – you just need to have 5 pounds of honey and an ounce of finely ground marijuana that has a good quality. Once you are sure that you have everything that you need, you can proceed with the tincture making.
Cannabis Tincture Making
Place the finely ground cannabis into the cheesecloth and then wrap it, secure your wrapping with a string. Put the cannabis wrapped in cheesecloth into the crock pot and then cover it entirely with the honey. Cover the crock pot and then set it on the stove but only on low fire. Let it simmer for about 4 hours; stir the honey from time to time. Remember that the mixture should not boil, it only has to simmer and if ever it does boil, all you have to do is turn off the crock pot and then let it cool down for a few moments then turn it back on again.
After four hours of simmering, separate the bundle from the honey and then you have to strain the cheesecloth of the honey that might have gotten in there. Let the mixture cool and put in a glass container, make sure that you seal it tightly. The final result that you will get should appear to be warm orange in color. Now, you can substitute this for honey or sugar in any recipe that you are going to make. This can be kept in your cupboard and still be good for use for about a month.
There are a lot of ways that you can make use of this tincture. If you are a patient that makes use of this for its medicinal features, you can directly administer or take the tincture. Experts say that the best way to do that is by sublingual administration. And as I have said, you can also use this in preparing food and drinks in making cannabis edibles.
