Getting Started with Your Cannabis-Infused Hot Cocoa
The very first, and arguably the most important, ingredient you will need in order to make and enjoy the marijuana-infused hot chocolate recipes is canna milk.
It’s milk that’s very easy to make, and you’ll want to have enough on hand to make your hot cocoa.
Cannamilk takes a few hours to prepare, but it does keep in the fridge for as long as your milk is fresh.
You could prepare a larger batch and have it ready for the next time you want to enjoy some cannabis hot cocoa or any other yummy edible recipes that call for this ingredient.
If you’re vegan or can’t do dairy, you can substitute the milk with a combo of coconut milk and coconut cream that is full-fat.
