Winter weather means you’ll end up spending more time indoors than outside. While this can feel somewhat depressing, you don’t have to be bored while you’re at home. Instead, you can experiment and find new, fun ways to enjoy your favorite cannabis from the best dispensaries in Denver. Though there are many different edibles and treats you can make at home, they don’t always warm you up the way you want them to. Here are a few great cannabis-infused hot beverages to make this winter.
Hot Cannabuttered Rum
After a long week of work, you need a way to relax and unwind. What better way to do just that than with a hot cocktail? This cannabis-infused version of a classic hot buttered rum combines the perfect amount of boozy goodness with THC for a warm and relaxing beverage that will make even the toughest week feel less stressful. You’ll need the following:
- 2 tablespoons of cannabutter
- 2 tablespoons dark brown sugar
- Ground ginger to taste
- Ground nutmeg to taste
- Ground cinnamon to taste
- 1.5 ounces of dark rum
- ¼ cup hot water
- Lemon wedge
- Mix these together to create a delicious warming beverage to help you unwind.
Cannabis-Infused Hot Cocoa
Nothing says “winter” like hot chocolate and this simple recipe is all you need to satisfy your sweet tooth while giving yourself a nice, relaxing buzz. Grab your preferred hot cocoa mix—we recommend the powdered kind for simplicity’s sake—and your favorite cannabis-infused chocolate bar. Any flavor of chocolate works here. Mix the hot cocoa according to the directions on the package and break off your desired amount of cannabis chocolate. Chop it up into small bits and stir it into the beverage. Once everything is melted and fully incorporated, top the drink with miniature marshmallows or whipped topping.
Super-Relaxing Chamomile Tea
Nothing is better at helping you relax and unwind than chamomile tea save for a cannabis-infused chamomile tea. Start with a high-quality chamomile blend. Look for teas that are organic if possible. Steep the tea for about 5 minutes. Sweeten with cannabis-infused honey
to taste. If you’re not a fan of sweet teas, steep the chamomile with your preferred bud to create a straight-up cannabis-infused chamomile herbal tea. Just make sure you enjoy the taste of the bud you use. Steeping it as tea brings out a lot of the earthy flavors that are often hidden by smoking. If you choose the wrong strain, it can make the tea less enjoyable.
