Notes and Expert Tips
- If you're new to edibles, be mindful of your THC dosage. Although you want to have a delightful experience, a fun experience, you don't want to learn the hard way what it means to overconsume cannabis edibles.
- Keep out of reach of children. While it's amazing to reach for a glass of medicated eggnog after a long day of work, this treat is for the adult sweet tooth only.
- Whether it be OG Kush or a strain with a specific terpene profile - pick your favorite cannabis strain to enjoy!
- If you'd like to make the mixing process easy, feel free to use a bowl of a stand mixer. There are some really good brands that can cut the mixing process time in half and create soft peaks that are perfect for this holiday drink!
