How to Make Cannabis Milk

Cannabis milk, like cannabis butter, is a great base to cook with. There are several recipes, in which milk is used because of its fat content. The THC and cannabinoids from your cannabis can bind to this fat, giving you a very high making drink. Once you have it, you can use it to make a cannabis version of anything that usually has milk in it, from a bowl of cereal to baking a masterpiece. We have two choices. One uses standard cow’s milk and the other is for vegans who use almond milk. By replacing the milk with whipped cream, you can also make Marijuana Cream.

Cannabis milk recipe

Level: Beginner // Preparation time: 1.5 hours


  • A saucepan
  • A sieve
  • Grinder/blender
  • 250 ml whole milk
  • 3-5 grams of cannabis (depending on the strength)


  1. Use your grinder or blender to grind your cannabis as fine as possible. The finer it is, the larger your surface area will be. The larger the surface area, the more efficiently the cannabinoids can be extracted.
  2. Pour your milk into the sauce pan and heat it until it is gently simmering.
  3. Turn down the heat and add your cannabis, stirring occasionally.
  4. Let the milk simmer for an hour, stirring occasionally to keep it moving.
  5. After an hour, let your mixture cool and then strain out your cannabis with a fine sieve.
  6. Pour the milk into a container and store it in the refrigerator. The expiration date remains the same as the used pack of milk.

Recipe for vegan cannabis almond milk

Level: Beginner // Preparation time: all day The vegan version of cannabis milk is based on almond milk, due to its naturally high fat content. You can of course use store-bought almond milk, but it’s much tastier to make your own fresh batch. It’s simple! To make fresh almond milk you will need the following:


  • 45 grams of almonds
  • 250 ml water


  1. Soak the almonds in water overnight.
  2. Grind the almonds and water together in a food processor/blender until it is smooth and looks like milk.
  3. Strain the almond residue from the milk. Using a special nut milk bag is helpful here, but a fine sieve will do as well.

Continue making cannabis milk as described above, substituting the cow’s milk for the almond milk. Done! You now have cannabis milk that you can drink immediately, use as part of another drink, and even cook with!
