Strawberry Lemonade Cannabis Cocktail or Mocktail

There is something about sitting outside on a hot summer day, sipping on a freshly infused and refreshing cannabis juice, that sounds so delightful. 

As many people choose alcohol to be their summertime drink, I’m coming through with something new, a cannabis-infused summer cocktail or mocktail!

This drink will not only give you the amazing effects of cannabis but includes options for an alcohol-cannabis cocktail or an alcohol-free mocktail version as well for those who don’t consume alcohol.

When made as a mocktail, this drink will never have you feeling “hungover” the next day. Alcohol tends to dehydrate the body while also suppressing our immune systems.

Switching to a more natural drink like this Cannabis Strawberry Lemonade not only raises our vibrations, but it has beneficial health properties as well.

Cannabis Drink Benefits

If you are like me, you appreciate the beautiful abundance of cannabis that grows from the ground and provides our bodies the preventative medicine our endocannabinoid systems need.  

My inspiration for this delicious cannabis drink is the beautiful cannabis plant that treats many issues like anxiety, depression, insomnia, inflammation.

Cannabis pairs perfectly with fruits that give our bodies essential vitamins and minerals was another inspiration, all mixed together with a hot summer day. 

This drink is the most refreshing and relaxing cannabis drink there is. So much so that I am willing to bet that this drink will become your new favorite for summertime.

Blending vs. Juicing

This juice is made in a blender instead of with a juicer, so the lemonade retains all of the important dietary fiber from the strawberries and watermelon but is still light enough to sip on all day long.

You could add a handful of raw cannabis leaves to this drink if desired, rather than making juice and adding it to the drink.

Cannabis Mocktail (Alcohol-free) Version

For the mocktail version of this cannabis drink, we will be adding in raw cannabis juice.

If you don’t already have your raw cannabis juice made, you can get a full step-by-step guide here.

Raw cannabis juice contains many important dietary nutrients long with cannabinoid acids, like CBDA and THCA.

CBDA is an inactive precursor for CBD and CBDA is what produces CBD. Both CBDA and CBD are non-intoxicating, meaning they do not produce a ‘high’ feeling.

Research suggests that CBDA has potential therapeutic applications that are also non-intoxicating.

CBDA is what exists before the decarboxylation process occurs. 

Cannabis Cocktail alcohol-cocktail Version

For the cocktail version of this cannabis drink, we will be adding in our pre-made cannabis tincture.

First off, what is a cannabis tincture? 

Tinctures are extracts made by soaking the leaves, bark, or roots of herbs in a solvent like alcohol.

The alcohol is used to extract the active ingredients, including cannabinoids like CBD and THC, and terpenes from the plant material, dissolving and concentrating them in the alcohol.

The final product is a cannabis-alcohol infusion, oftentimes called the Green Dragon.

It is important to remember that this tincture contains very high proof alcohol that has the potential to burn the mouth or produce alcohol intoxication.

For this reason, we recommend adding only a very small amount of cannabis tincture at a time until you reach your desired taste and dosage.

Adding the cannabis tincture to this summertime drink no doubt takes summer to a whole new level, just enjoy responsibly!

Health Benefits by Ingredients

Besides the benefits of raw cannabis, if that is what you’re using here, there are no added sugars or artificial sweeteners in this drink; it is all-natural and guilt-free.

Strawberries

The first ingredient is a cup of strawberries. Strawberries are an excellent vitamin C and manganese source, containing a good amount of folate and potassium. 

Strawberries are great for heart health and help control blood sugar because of their high amounts of antioxidants and plant compounds. 

Watermelon

Watermelon is next on the ingredient list, and here is why….

Watermelon is made up of 92% water, making this the most refreshing fruit soaked with nutrients.

Each juicy bite has significant vitamins A, B6, and C, lots of lycopene, antioxidants, and amino acids. There is even a modest amount of potassium.

Fresh Squeezed Lemon Juice

The recipe uses a ¼ cup of lemon juice not only because of the freshness from the lemon in the drink, but it also adds more vitamin C into the diet, as well as folate and potassium. 

Lemon is also known to aid in smoother digestion and may help clear skin. This lemon juice in the drink gives the drink just the right amount of tartness. 

Local, Fresh Honey

A tablespoon of honey is used for not only the sweetness it gives to the drink, but honey also contains micronutrients essential for our daily health.

Additionally, many people prefer to infuse their honey with cannabis, meaning you could make this mocktail or cocktail with cannabis-infused honey as well.

However, if you are looking for a vegan alternative, agave syrup will work just as well!
