Infusing cannabis into food and drinks is what we do. And since THC and CBD are alcohol soluble, tequila makes a great weed infusion. Don’t get us wrong, we are not recommending to smash the whole bottle on a single evening. Rather use the tequila to make a nice CBD or THC infused cocktail like a Weed Margarita or Canna Tequila Sunrise. If you are going for tequila weed shots, 1 shot will do. You will feel the light buzz of the alcohol and 45 minutes later you start feeling the effects of the marijuana strain.
The recipe will give you roughly about 20MG THC per standard shot glass.
However, you can also use an all CBD strain and make CBD cocktails. This way you will not get the crossfaded effect and won’t feel the psychoactive effects from the marijuana.
There could actually be benefits to taking CBD with alcohol, suggests Soyona Rafatja, a New York-based functional and integrative family medicine physician.
One study in the journal Psychopharmacology found that people who had alcohol and a CBD capsule had lower blood alcohol levels than those who had alcohol alone.
Lets get creative, this weed tequila recipe will be a perfect base for a lot of cannabis cocktails. Or maybe even try inventing a whole new cocktail.
- Bottle of Tequila
- 1/8 Ounce cannabis
- Set your oven on 240f
- Decarboxylate your cannabis: placing it in an oven tray and wrapped up in tin foil. Place your cannabis in the oven for minimum of 20 minutes. Up to 40 min.
- Wrap your decarbed cannabis in a pantyhose or small cheesecloth and wrap tight so it will fit into the top of the tequila bottle. And place it in your bottle.
- let stand for at least 24 hours up to weeks. And shake every 12 hours.
