As Autumn sets in, we're excited about the Halloween season and evenings bundled up on the couch watching scary movies amidst declining temperatures. It's also that time of the year when the hype for a certain flavored coffee drink increases: the signature pumpkin spice latte (PSL) - a seasonal fall beverage that everyone either loves - or loves to hate on. Regardless, we think you'll enjoy our THC - infused version of this popular autumn drink. It's the perfect way to discreetly integrate some marijuana into your seasonal festivities as well as indulge yourself with a cozy and relaxing beverage that you can curl up on the sofa with.
Before we jump into making a THC-infused PSL, you will need both decarboxylated marijuana and milk. Decarboxylation is the process where THCA and CBDA cannabinoids are converted to THC and CBD so that our body's endocannabinoid system can absorb them for us to feel the psychoactive effects. This involves heating up weed for a certain amount of time (instructions for this process here). Be sure to calculate the THC dosage carefully using this online calculator. The general rule is ÃÂ½ - 1 gram of weed per quart of milk. If you prefer to make your PSL CBD infused instead of THC, you can substitute the decarboxylated cannabis and replace it with CBD oil to make a pumpkin spice CBD latte. You can use either dairy or plant-based milk, but just remember that the fat content is key because cannabinoids have to bind with fat in order to be effective so whole milk always works best.
With this delicious recipe, you can enjoy a medicated PSL from the comfort of your own home without even needing to leave the house - especially during a pandemic.
