Drinking (in moderate amounts) is a common component of global culture. And for more reasons than one, many are shifting from alcoholic drinks to more relaxing alternatives to combat life’s daily pressures.

Case in point: Cannabis mocktails.

While it isn’t advisable to mix Cannabis with alcoholic drinks, mocktails can undoubtedly be made with Cannabis. Mixing Cannabis with alcoholic drinks can make you feel nauseous, and you may end up feeling awful.

It is precisely how the world of ‘mocktails’ comes to your rescue. Having Cannabis-based mocktail drinks will not only let you enjoy your evening, but it will also prevent dangerous chemical reactions in your body, which can occur with a combination of alcohol and Cannabis.

So, what are you waiting for? Are you planning an evening with friends or a Netflix and chill session with colleagues (in person or over call)? If yes, then it is best suited that you start preparing some Cannabis-based cocktails at home by purchasing online weed or visit your nearest Cannabis store.

Buy some canna and prepare a CBD syrup out of it. Before you look at the main recipes for the best huss-free sexperience, it is essential to understand how you can make the CBD syrup (required for all mocktails) at home.

You’ll need:

  • Cups of filtered water,
  • 3-4 cups of refined sugar,
  • 2-3 tablespoons of edible glycerine,
  • 2 grams of finely grounded Cannabis (all of these will be available at the medical store),
  • one jar, and
  • a strainer (for getting a finely fiber-free product).

Process

Bring the mixture of sugar and water to boil. Stir to get a dissolved mix and then add the cannabis.

Make sure that this amalgamation boils for at least a minimum of 20 minutes. This is an essential step as the heat decarboxylates the cannabis. After 20 minutes, gradually reduce the temperature and add edible glycerin.

Let it simmer for another five minutes and then transfer the hot syrup to a jar. Make sure you don’t pour the plant content into the jar.

Sounds like an effort already? Well, though preparing Cannabis mocktails may take some time, but it is certainly worth it.
