How to Infuse Cannabis Wellness Shots
As with all things cannabis, there are many ways to infuse something.
I recommend infusing these wellness shots with a cannabis tincture, a cannabis oil, or cannabis concentrates for this recipe.
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 ensure that you already have a cannabis alcohol tincture prepared before starting with this recipe.
If you have not yet made a cannabis tincture before, I have a few different options for you:
- Green Dragon tincture
- QWET Freezer Golden Dragon
- The difference between the two
- CBDA tincture
- THCA tincture
- Cannabis root tincture
If you do not want a lot of alcohol in this wellness shot, evaporate most of the alcohol from the tincture first.
You can follow this guide for safe evaporation techniques.
If you are a medical marijuana patient or live in a recreationally legal state, chances are you may have access to cannabis concentrates.
This recipe can easily use cannabis concentrates 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 your concentrate, you will want to ensure that your cannabis concentrate is decarbed first if needed.
If you are unsure 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 ½ cup of butter or oil called for in this recipe.
How much you will add is up to you and your taste preferences; 1ml or 1 gram is a good place to start.
Options for liquid cannabis oils include:
How Much Cannabis Should You Use?
There is no standard recommendation for cannabis dosing.
Using cannabis is a self-experiment as each body will have a unique response and reaction based on your endocannabinoid system.
A general recommendation is to start low and slow, gradually titrating up in dosage as needed.
