Marijuana Milk is just as versatile as cannabis-butter or cannabis oil, as it can be used in any recipe that calls for milk. Or add 2-3 tablespoons of marijuana milk to your favorite cup of tea.

It is important to use whole milk or cream when making this recipe because the cannabinoids, including the psychoactive tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), are only soluble in lipids.

For a well-balanced experience of both head and body, use one of the following strains in the marijuana milk recipe:


  • 1 cup Whole Milk or Cream (do not use skim or low-fat milk)
  • 1/8 ounce (3.5 grams) of finely ground cannabis buds


  • Grinder (a clean coffee grinder will work best)
  • Saucepan
  • Whisk
  • Cheese cloth
  • Air-tight liquid storage container


  1. Grind up the marijuana until it is a very fine consistency.
  2. Place milk and marijuana together in the saucepan.
  3. Heat the milk and marijuana mixture on low heat for at least 45 minutes. It is very important to whisk constantly to prevent from burning. Do not let it boil. A light simmer is ok, as long as you are constantly whisking.
  4. Remove from heat, and allow the marijuana milk to cool for 5 minutes.
  5. Strain the marijuana milk through a cheesecloth at least 1 time to remove plant matter.

Keep leftovers refrigerated in an airtight container. Be sure to use it before the expiration date.
