Simple syrup is a very useful and common ingredient found in many recipes used to sweeten things up. It can be found in everything from cakes, brownies, cookies, and a plethora of other “baked” goods, or used in drinks such as cocktails, iced coffee, or tea. It can even be used as a glaze to drizzle over top of fruits, pastries, or any other number of deserts you can imagine. We’re going to show you how to make your very own simple to make - cannabis simple syrup.


The Possibilities are Endless


The uses for simple syrup are virtually endless and there is really no reason for you to NOT have a bottle of cannabis simple syrup on hand for all of your various culinary needs. Just like sugar itself, it’s a very common ingredient in your kitchen and likely gets used regularly, so why not have another option that not only sweetens your food but also mellows your mood?


Gathering Your Ingredients


The ingredients to make fantastic cannabis simple syrup are as simple as the recipe itself, it’s all in the name! You’ll need the following items:


– 1 cup sugar

– 1 cup water

– 1 gram of cannabis, ground

– 1 cheesecloth

– 1 small decanter, mason jar, or any airtight container

– A paper funnel


Making Cannabis Simple Syrup

First, start by combining 1 cup of sugar and 1 cup of water in a saucepan over medium heat. Begin to stir the mixture and continue stirring occasionally until the sugar is fully dissolved and your syrup is completely clear and no longer cloudy.


Once you’re all clear go ahead and add in 1 gram of your favorite finely ground cannabis and cover your saucepan for 20 minutes continuing on medium heat. After 20 minutes, remove the lid and stir the glorious mixture a bit more for good measure, and to keep it nice and even.


Remove your saucepan from the heat and set it aside. Using your decanter, jar, or airtight storage vessel of choice place the paper funnel into the lid and then line the funnel with a piece of cheesecloth. This is an important step to make sure you only strain the syrup into your jar and not all of the flakey buds that are fun to look at, but not so fun to chew on!


Slowly pour your cannabis simple syrup into the cheesecloth-lined funnel and allow it to strain and separate the simple syrup from the loose green. Once you’re finished straining, remove the funnel and store your marijuana simple syrup in the refrigerator.


Stay Cool


You’ll want to make sure you are storing your creation in an airtight container in the refrigerator until you are ready to use it. Cannabis simple syrup can stay fresh for up to 4 weeks, however, there’s likely not a great chance this batch will last that long!


Get Even More Creative

Just like the cannabis, you can extract flavor from so many other things such as cinnamon sticks and vanilla beans for more of your culinary sweet tooth cravings. Additionally, you can get even more adventurous and use fresh or dried chiles and garden herbs as well as aromatics such as citrus rinds from lemons, grapefruits, or limes, or even edible flowers such as lavender and rose.
