Ingredient Notes

Ginger Turmeric Shots Infused With CBD
  • Apple juice – get the good kind. Skip the sugary kid’s juices. Swap for apple cider vinegar if desired.
  • Ginger – fresh is best, but minced ginger or fresh ginger paste will also work
  • Turmeric – ground or fresh
  • Honey – regular or infused honey
  • Black pepper – to increase the bioavailability of the turmeric
  • Cannabis tincture – or any of the other options listed under the alternate infusion options section below

Note: a complete list of ingredients with amounts and printable instructions is located in the recipe card below.

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.

If you’re brand new to cannabis edibles, you’ll want to check out my beginner’s guide first to understand how they will affect you.

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 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:

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.

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. 

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 1/2 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.

Cannabis Oil

I do not think solid oil-based infusions like cannabis coconut oil or cannabutter would work well in this recipe; it needs to be a liquid cannabis oil to maintain the best consistency.

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.

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.
