Ever considered mixing Kool-aid with cannabis? Our weed Kool-aid recipe is the perfect drink for hot summer days and chill gatherings, bringing good vibes to a whole new level.
Gathering the materials
To get started, you’ll need:
- Two packs of Kool-aid
- One and a half cups of sugar
- Cannabis buds of about 0.25-0.5g
- One gallon of water
- Baking sheet
- Aluminum foil
- Parchment paper
Weed Kool-aid Recipe
Preheat the oven
Start by preheating your oven to 200-245°F (93-118°C). This temp range activates the sought-after cannabinoids without degrading or destroying them.
Grind the cannabis buds
Use your hands or the grinder to break down the cannabis buds into medium consistency. Grinding the weed is important as it increases the surface area for uniform decarboxylation.
Spread out the buds
Line the baking sheet with parchment paper. Then, spread the ground weed evenly, forming a thin layer. Cover it with aluminum foil and drill small holes throughout for excellent airflow.
Carefully place the loaded baking sheet into the oven and bake for approximately 30-45 minutes. However, ensure you check and turn the weed after every 10 minutes to avoid overheating, which can destroy the precious cannabinoids and terpenes.
Let it cool down
The weed will turn golden brown once it’s completely decarbed. Let it cool for about 30 minutes before handling and moving on to the next step.
Mixing the ingredients
Start by combining the decarbed weed with a solvent such as butter. Then, heat the mixture gently on low heat for about 30 minutes to two hours for maximum infusion. Next, use the sieve to strain the mixture.
Put the Kool-Aid packs, sugar, and water in a pitcher and mix thoroughly. Then, add your infused liquid to the pitcher and mix again.
Allow it to sit for at least 30 minutes, potentially improving the infusion, flavor, and potency. You can strain the mixture again to remove any plant material. Now you have a well-prepared Kool-aid weed drink you can serve over ice and enjoy its therapeutic and psychoactive effects.
Storing weed-infused Kool-aid
Here are ways to store weed infused Kool-aid to preserve its potency and avoid spoilage.
Use airtight containers
You can use airtight mason jars to store your drink. However, store it in a dark, dry place to avoid exposing it to temperature and humidity, which can affect its potency.
Refrigeration is another to keep your cannabis-infused drink fresh. Put the drink in a sealed container and put it in your fridge. In a fridge, you can store your drinks for a few months.
When storing your cannabis-infused Kool-aid, it’s crucial to check out signs of spoilage. This includes mold growth, bad smell, and color changes, and the drink should be discarded immediately.
How much to drink
Just like any other weed product, there’s no universal dosage. The right amount to drink depends on several factors, including personal tolerance, strain used, metabolism, and more.
However, starting with low doses and increasing your dosage as needed is advisable, especially for first-timers. The most recommended dosage for novices is 2.5 mg of THC. So if the Kool-aid weed drink contains 5 mg of THC in a 12 fluid ounce ( 354.9 ml), you should have only 6 fluid ounces in order to consume roughly 2.5 mg of THC.
Foods to pair with
Here are several foods to pair with your weed infused Kool-aid to complement the flavor profile.
Snacks like fruit gummies, watermelon, or a berry salad can be a refreshing and healthy choice. They’ll provide a burst of flavor and natural sweetness, which the cannabis hit can enhance.
If you’d like to add an extra kick to your taste buds, consider spicy foods such as hot wings or nachos. They’ll create a unique contrast to the weed experience, enhancing sensory perception.
A cannabis infused Kool-aid is an excellent drink to enjoy during hot days. However, it’s crucial to be wary of dosage to avoid overconsumption, which can affect the whole experience.
