First of all, as in all cannabis recipes, the herb must be decarboxylated for the drink to contain all its effects. Otherwise, the liquor will take on the taste of cannabis and the properties of the cannabinoids in acid form, but we will lose much of the medicinal benefits.
It can be made with all types of alcoholic drinks, but keep in mind 2 things: the more alcohol it contains, the more cannabinoids it will extract in less time, and if you want to enjoy the taste of yerba, it is better to make it a white or neutral-flavored drink.
15 grams of buds per liter of alcohol
Ethyl alcohol or alcoholic liquor
Hermetic or sealable glass jar
Take a large glass jar and introduce the decarboxylated weed (15 or 20 grams of buds or 100 sheets of resin per liter of alcohol is enough).
Alcohol is added to the pot with the cannabis little by little.
We close and shake the jar for a few minutes…
We left the jar closed in a dark place…
We shake every day at least once…
After several days, you will be ready to consume, depending on the drink used as a base, it will take 3, 7, or 15 days to dissolve all the cannabinoids.
Open the jar and filter the liquor through a cloth sieve to separate the plant matter.
Beneficial effects and properties of cannabis liquor
The mixture of cannabis and alcohol creates a synergy that enhances the psychoactive effect of the two components separately. Alcohol is thought to cause faster absorption of cannabinoids, but even so, alcohol intoxication is perceived earlier than the effect of herbs. That’s why you have to be careful when you drink alcohol and cannabis together because it’s easy to think that it doesn’t have much effect on you and drink more, and by the time you realize it, it’s too late.
The interaction of cannabis with alcohol has a more introspective effect than when smoked alone. It is ideal for inspiration because it invites you to meditate and think about everything, but in a relaxed and peaceful state.
Medically, the combined effects of cannabis and alcohol can be useful for escape, anxiety, certain types of pain, or nerves. In small amounts (up to 50 ml), it can be helpful to reduce tension and open the mind, but in large doses the effect becomes narcotic, so it can be useful in treating insomnia.
