Cannabis Ice Cream | Pre-Preparation

This recipe can be made various different ways, each one depending on how you want to add your cannabis in. In this version, in order to get THC into the ice cream, we’ll be using cannabis milk which is quite simple to make and guarantees the presence of THC.

This cannabis recipe can also be prepared using cannabis butter (cannabutter), which can be stored for longer than cannabis milk.

We’re going to give a step by step explanation on how to proceed; the first step you’ll need to do is prepare your cannabis milk.


  • 300ml full milk
  • 5g dry cannabis buds


  • Medium-sized saucepan
  • 1 glass container for the milk
  • 1 sieve

Before starting to cook, we recommend cleaning the cannabis that you plan on using. Place it in a pan with water and heat it up without letting it boil, or without letting it go over 120ºC if you have an efficient way to control the heat.

This is done to get rid of some of the green, chlorophyll flavor from your weed, although it is optional as chlorophyll also contains beneficial properties.

Cannabis milk recipe steps:

  • Clean your cannabis.
  • Prepare a saucepan and pour in your milk.
  • Place your weed in the saucepan.
  • Set it to medium heat for 40 minutes and try to keep it from going over 150°C.
  • Strain the milk and remove the leftover weed.
  • Let it cool down and place the milk in the fridge.
  • Your cannabis milk is ready for making for very own cannabis ice cream!
  • This milk can be used medicinally also, being highly effective for eating disorders and intense muscle pain, among others.

The effect that this ice cream is capable of producing may vary depending on the amount of cannabis used, and if you’re planning on using leaves or buds – it also depends on the THC tolerance of the person consuming the ice cream.

This is why we recommend consuming it with moderation and patience, as cannabis takes longer to take effect when ingested. To be exact, you’ll start feeling the effects around an hour after ingesting it and it can last for a few hours.

If you eat cannabis ice cream and don’t notice any sort of effect after a couple of hours, you may not have had enough. You will need to wait a couple of hours, however, to be sure – you’ll need to be super patient, as if you take more after waiting for about a half an hour you may end up getting too much of an intense high.

If you consume too much, do not fret. Try and stay calm, sit somewhere with good ventilation, put some relaxing music on and take CBD if you have any nearby, as it counteracts the effect produced by THC.
