Medical Marijuana Beverages

marijuana Beverage

Medical Marijuana Beverages and Marijuana Alcohol have become very popular with marijuana dispensaries and patients, as cannabinoids dissolve well in alcohol. There are a few ways to prepare these beverages.

Most Common Ways to Make Medical Marijuana Beverages

Probably one of the easiest ways to process your leaf and buds is to make marijuana alcohol, which then can be used to create an intoxicating and mouthwatering array of beverages. For best results, marijuana alcohol should be prepared two full weeks before using. Generally, the stronger the alcohol content the better. Grain alcohol is pure alcohol-odorless, tasteless, and very potent. At 190 proof, grain alcohol makes an extremely strong brew that I recommend only be used in moderation. I personally prefer to use vodka. Most mid-level vodkas are now triple-filtered, which helps to make them purer. Fewer impurities mean less of a hangover.

Recipes for Medical Marijuana Beverages with Alcohol

Use this guide in each of the following beverage recipes:

1. Take 1 bottle of vodka and drain approximately a quarter of the liquid.

2. Use either ground up buds or using leaves that have been trimmed free of stems.

3. Store this mixture in a cool dark place, allowing at least 1 week for the cannabinoids to dissolve.

I recommend waiting 2 full weeks to ensure the maximum effect. You can substitute vodka with your liquor of choice.

Recommended Dosage: 1-2oz. per drink.

Preparation Time: 5 minutes

Cooking Time: 5 minutes to mix, 1to 2 Weeks to dissolve.

Now that you know the basics, lets make some drinks!

Mikes Mystery Water (An MVH Special)

1oz Chambord Raspberry Liqueur

1oz Malibu Coconut Rum

Splash of sweet & sour mix

Splash of pineapple juice

1/2oz Blue Curacao

Boombattas Vodka (It’s a G-Thang!)

1oz. of THC induced Vodka

1/2oz. of Gin

1/2oz. of Light Rum

1/2oz. of Tequila (i prefer Patron)

2 dashes of Cola so you can see when you get to the bottom of the glass

Juice of 1/2 a Lemon


1. Combine the ingredients and pour over ice in a highball glass.

2. Garnish with a slice of lemon.

Non-Alcoholic Marijuana Beverages

Milk is an excellent medium for extracting THC from your buds or leafs. I like to add Honey to my milk for flavor. Milk can be frozen for up to 3 months, so feel free and make a huge batch!


1. Add 4 cups of milk and 1 spoon of honey to a pan and heat on a low heat until almost boiling.

2. Add 2 grams of finely chopped marijuana bud or leaf and set heat to low.

3. Simmer at the low heat for at least 1 half hour while stirring regularly.

4. Make sure that the milk does not boil.

5. Strain the milk through cheesecloth or a coffee filter and leave to cool.

Chronic Chai

4 cups of milk

1 tablespoon instant or freeze-dried coffee

1/4 cup brown sugar

3 cinnamon sticks

6 cardamom pods

1/8 teaspoon grated nutmeg

1/8 teaspoon allspice


1. Combine all ingredients in a saucepan. Simmer, stirring to dissolve sugar and instant coffee, for 5 minutes over low heat.

2. Don’t let the mixture boil.

3. Let the mixture steep off the heat for 20-30 minutes.

4. Pour through a clean sieve or strainer.

5. Serve either hot or cold.

Gone Bananas Shake

1 apple, peeled and cored

3 small bananas

1 large scoop of ice cream (i prefer vanilla bean or chocolate)

2 cups of fresh, ice cold THC Milk


1. Mix all ingredients in a blender for 30 seconds.

2. Mix the ice cream and milk.

3. Serve with nuts on top (optional)

Now you can enjoy your favorite Medical Marijuana Beverages

    I’m just beginning to explore the world of cooking with marijuana, and I recently came into possession of some kief. I’m a bit timid about experimenting, but the above non-alcoholic drink recipes sound great. I would just like to know how the measurements would translate when preparing the THC milk. would it be 2 grams of ANY form of marijuana (finely chopped bud, leaf, kief or otherwise), or is kief more potent and should I use less of it? and after that question is answered, I’d like to know if kief needs to be boiled like the other forms in order to activate it when preparing the milk… I’m finding a lot of conflicting information. Any clarification will be appreciated.

      use kief only. all measurements vary. Seriously! not to sound cliche. but everyone is different, every strain is diff, every thc content level is diff. etc . u get the point. on that note, just use 2 gram measurement of kief. it does not need to be boiled. although getting it warmed up wont hurt it any.

    drinking a whole bottle will get you trashed even without the kief in it!!!!

    can you use Silk instead of Milk and can that be frozen for up to 3 months? and, how much of the thc milk/silk would one drink per sitting?

    • dizzle Sep 12, 2011, 12:27 am

      ive never used silk so i dont know,,, check my recipes link for the breakdown on thc content

      • kathy Sep 19, 2011, 6:32 pm

    About how much good bud would YOU put in 3/4 bottle of vodka? Thanks.

    • dizzle Aug 29, 2011, 6:54 pm

      depends on the strength of the bud. I only use pure kief (thc glands extracted through a kief tumbler). when i do, id use approx 1 gram of kief to a whole bottle of vodka, and im trashed!
