Cannabis-infused drinks are becoming increasingly popular among cannabis enthusiasts, offering a refreshing and versatile way to enjoy the benefits of cannabis. Whether you’re looking for a soothing tea, a zesty lemonade, or a festive cocktail, infusing drinks with cannabis can elevate your beverage game. This guide will walk you through the process of making your own cannabis-infused drinks, ensuring you get the most out of your experience.

Understanding Cannabis Infusions

The key ingredient in cannabis-infused drinks is a cannabis tincture or cannabis-infused syrup, both of which can be made at home.
Cannabis Tincture: This is a concentrated extract made by soaking cannabis flowers in high-proof alcohol, which extracts the cannabinoids (like THC and CBD) and terpenes from the plant. Tinctures are potent and can be added to drinks in small doses.
Cannabis-Infused Syrup: This is a sweet, viscous liquid made by infusing a simple syrup (sugar and water) with cannabis. It’s perfect for sweetening and adding cannabis to beverages.


How to Make Cannabis Tincture


  • 1 ounce of decarboxylated cannabis (heating cannabis to activate the THC)
  • 1 pint of high-proof alcohol (like Everclear)


  1. Place the decarboxylated cannabis in a mason jar.
  2. Pour the alcohol over the cannabis, ensuring it is fully submerged.
  3. Seal the jar tightly and shake it vigorously.
  4. Store the jar in a dark, cool place for at least two weeks, shaking it daily.
  5. After two weeks, strain the mixture through a cheesecloth or fine mesh strainer to remove the plant material.
  6. Transfer the tincture to a dropper bottle for easy use.

How to Make Cannabis-Infused Syrup


  • 2 cups of water
  • 2 cups of granulated sugar
  • 1 gram of decarboxylated cannabis
  • 1 tablespoon of vegetable glycerin (optional for better infusion)


  1. Combine water and sugar in a saucepan and bring to a boil, stirring until the sugar dissolves.
  2. Add the decarboxylated cannabis and lower the heat to a simmer.
  3. Let the mixture simmer for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  4. Add the vegetable glycerin and stir to combine.
  5. Strain the syrup through a cheesecloth or fine mesh strainer to remove the cannabis.
  6. Store the syrup in a sealed container in the refrigerator.
