How to Infuse Cannabis Wellness Shots
As with all things cannabis, there are many different ways to infuse something.
For this recipe, I recommend infusing these wellness shots with either a cannabis tincture, a cannabis oil, or cannabis concentrates.
Make A Cannabis Tincture
One way to infuse these wellness shots is to add a bit of a cannabis tincture.
If you choose to infuse with a tincture, you want to make sure that you already have a cannabis alcohol tincture prepared before getting started with this recipe.
If you have not yet made a cannabis tincture before, I have two different options for you.
If you want a non-intoxicating shot, you could also try a CBDA tincture.
If you do not want a lot of alcohol present in this wellness shot, be sure to evaporate off a majority of the alcohol from the tincture first.
You can follow this guide for safe evaporation techniques.
Infuse With Cannabis Concentrates
If you are a medical marijuana patient or live in a recreationally legal state, chances are you may have access to cannabis concentrates.
You can easily use cannabis concentrates in this recipe to make delicious infused brownies.
From distillate or CO2 oil, to shatter or wax, and FECO or RSO, all can work for this recipe.
Depending on what concentrate you are using, you will want to ensure that your cannabis concentrate is decarbed first, if needed.
If you are not sure if your cannabis concentrate needs to be decarbed, you can check this guide here.
Once you know whether or not you need to decarb your concentrate, you can gently warm it up and mix it into the 1/2 cup of butter or oil called for in this recipe.
How much you will add is up to you and your personal taste preferences, 1mL or 1 gram is a good place to start.
Infuse With Liquid Cannabis Oil
I do not think that any solid oil-based infusions like cannabis coconut oil or cannabutter would work well in this recipe; it really needs to be a liquid cannabis oil to maintain the best consistency.
Options for liquid cannabis oils include:
- Cannabis MCT Oil
- Cannabis Olive Oil
- Homemade CBD Oil
- Storebought CBD Oil
- Oil Made from AVB ‘Already Vaped Bud’
How Much Cannabis Should You Use?
There is no standard recommendation for cannabis dosing.
Using cannabis is truly a self-experiment as each body will have a unique response and reaction based on your personal endocannabinoid system.
A general recommendation is to start low and go slow, gradually titrating up in dosage as needed.
Like the education I provide in my Cannabis Compass Online Course, education will help you determine which delivery method, dosing, and application methods are best for you.
