- Lemons approx half dozen (or pour the lemon juice around 0.5L)
- Cold water approx 1.45L
- 200-250g sugar, or you can also use the cannabis sugar
- 2-3 tablespoons of cannabis tincture
- Infused honey or cannabis-infused sugar if required
Process of the making of simple cannabis lemonade recipe using cannabis sugar
- Squeeze the fresh lemon juice. You can use the lemon squeezer to take the last drop of simple syrup.
- Mix the freshly squeezed lemon juice in the mason jar and stir it thoroughly so the sugar can dissolve.
- Add the CBD tinctures of cannabis as per the preference and mix it well.
- Many people also prefer to consume cannabis sugar in a simple syrup instead of regular sugar. The cannabis sugar should be added to the control quantity.
Making Of Cannabis Tincture
At the beginning of the recipe, we will take the cannabis plant and heat it to activate the cannabinoids in it. This process is known as decarboxylation. The decarboxylated cannabis process can be skipped in the recipe if you have the plan to remove the alcohol with heat.
Once the cannabis has decarboxylated, then put it in the glass jar or small glass and put alcohol into it, close the lid and shake it properly. Leave the composition for 4-5 days so that alcohol can extract the cannabis fully and allow the mixture to sit for 24 hours. People also use vegetable glycerin as it binds CBD and THC to give an enhanced flavor.
Now use the stainer, coffee filter, or cheesecloth to separate the compound, removing the unwanted plant material. Put the liquid into the glass bottles to cool. Now the tincture is ready to use. Put 3-4 teaspoons or a few drops of cannabis tincture in your refreshing recipes of weed lemonade or any refreshing cannabis drinks.
Making Of Cannabis Infused Sugar
The preparation of the marijuana-infused sugar process is similar to the cannabis tinctures, and you must follow the same procedure for the alcohol & cannabis plant materials.
Mix the material into the glass jar and put it on low heat for the decarboxylation of marijuana. Close the pot, allow it to cool & sit for around 30 minutes, and shake it every few minutes.
Strain the mixture with the cheesecloth or coffee filter in the bowl. Add fresh sugar into the liquid mix and blend it well. After that, pour the materials into the small saucepan or baking dish. Cook it at the temperature of 200 degrees Fahrenheit. Stir the liquid regularly until all the alcohol has been removed. This can be done on low heat very efficiently.
When all alcohol has been removed from the liquid mixture, you can break the sizeable granulated sugar into pieces and place them in a tight container. The granulated sugar can be used to prepare cannabis edibles or drink recipes to refresh your mind.
Making Of Cannabis Infusions Of Iced Tea
The recipe for cannabis-infused iced tea is relatively easy, though the drops of tincture add a bitter taste to it. It does not pair well as it does with the THC lemonades. To add the sweetness, the infused honey or regular honey can be added to it. Ice tea is also an infused drink that can be consumed in the summer to feel fresh. The brewing process is almost the same as how you brew cannabis-infused lemonade.
Ingredients For The Cannabis Infused Honey Iced Tea
- 6 cups of water
- Six tea bags or loose leaf tea around three-tablespoon
- half or one-third of honey
Start By Preparing The Infused Honey
- Place the cup of filtered water with half of the natural honey in a small saucepan on the medium heat

- Once the mixture temperature reaches 150 degrees Fahrenheit, blend to dissolve the honey in water-soluble.
- Pour the cold glass into the container and keep it in the refrigerator to solidify.
