How To Spice Up Your Fall Beverages with THC
Although the weather’s getting colder, there are plenty of reasons to get excited about fall. After all, you can spend more time indoors, start preparing for Halloween and enjoy all kinds of refreshing fall beverages from pumpkin spice lattes to warm apple ciders. And if you want to enjoy these beverages more, you can even infuse them with cannabis.
Making cannabis-infused drinks is surprisingly easy. Often all it takes is a little bit of THC Tincture, although you can also make weed-infused drinks with your favorite cannabis flower strains. Whichever way, fall is an excellent time to start experimenting with THC drinks and enjoying the warming effects of cannabis. Here’s how to spice up your fall beverages with THC.
THC Pumpkin Spice Latte
When it comes to fall drinks, the classic pumpkin spice latte is one of the first things that comes to anyone’s mind. Whether you’re taking a walk among the autumn leaves or simply enjoying some time at home, a pumpkin spice latte is a soothing companion. That’s why it makes sense to infuse it with cannabis.
Some people make pumpkin spice lattes at home by adding pumpkin pie spice to their lattes. You can also heat pumpkin puree along with milk, vanilla extract, cinnamon, nutmeg, and brown sugar in a saucepan before adding it to your coffee. Alternatively, you can simply buy a pumpkin spice latte from your local Starbucks or even grab their pumpkin spice coffee pods to use in your coffee maker at home.
Whichever way you prefer to get your pumpkin spice latte, spicing it up with the effects of cannabis is easy. You’ll need some cannabis tincture or syrup, such as Mary’s Medicinal CBD: THC Tincture or Space Gem Tincture Gem Juice. Then, simply measure 10mg of your tincture and mix it into your latte for potent effects.
Cannabis Apple Cider
Hot apple cider is another drink that’s perfect for the fall season. Even if it’s windy or rainy outside, it’ll keep you warm and provide a comforting effect. Adding THC to the mix makes it even more comforting - it might even help you ward off some stress. As such, any cannabis lover should try this cannabis drink.
Start by adding 4 cups of fresh apple cider into a crock pot or slow cooker, along with 4 cinnamon sticks, apple slices, and a pinch of cloves. Boil the mixture and mix the ingredients thoroughly. Meanwhile, combine a dose of cannabis tincture (around 10 - 15mg should do) with 2 tablespoons of brown sugar.
After letting your apple cider brew in the slow cooker for an hour or two, pour out the ingredients and add your cannabis tincture and brown sugar. Not only will your apple cider be beautifully warm and inviting, but it’ll now also be infused with the effects of cannabis. Use a spoon to mix thoroughly then enjoy sipping this delicious fall drink.
THC Apple Cinnamon Juice
Cinnamon-infused apple juice is another one of the greatest fall drinks you can have. The combination of apple and cinnamon will remind you of apple pie - it might also remind you of other spiced fall drinks. You can have it chilled or warm - whichever way, this drink is perfect for any time of the day.
Grab a cup and fill it to around 75% full with apple juice. Next, top it off with Tinley’s 27 Elixir Cinnamon Cask. This non-alcoholic elixir is packed with THC, so even a small amount can give you a phenomenal high. You might also want to add some cinnamon and nutmeg to your cup and mix it thoroughly.
From the first sip, this drink will tantalize your taste buds. You can even make it into a cocktail by adding a shot of Fireball Whiskey. However, even without the alcohol, this drink will calm your nerves and make you feel happy and carefree.
Cannabis tea is one of the most popular cannabis-infused beverages for any time of the year, but it’s especially great during fall. As the weather gets colder, you’ll be tempted to stay indoors and sip on a refreshing cup of tea while you read, watch movies, or listen to music. It’s also easy to add a dose of THC.
Some people make cannabis tea by brewing weed stems in hot water before adding them to tea. However, using THC tincture is much easier. A small dose of 10mg of THC tincture is enough to give you a strong euphoric high. However, you can also use a lower dose of 2.5 to 7.5mg if you want to enhance your mood and senses without getting too high.
Alternatively, you can make things even easier by buying readymade weed tea blends. For instance, you might want to try the Kikoko Tea Creativi-Tea 10-pack or Kikoko Tea Positivi-Tea 10-pack, or other cannabis teas. Just drop the weed-infused tea bag into hot water and your drink will soon be ready. You can even add fall spices such as cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg.
THC-Infused Hot Cocoa
Hot cocoa is another top drink that’ll serve you well throughout fall and winter, especially as the weather cools down. Hot cocoa is perfect for pre-bedtime relaxation. It'll help you relax your body and calm your mind - even more so when you add a dose of cannabis to your cup of hot cocoa.
Start by making a cup of hot cocoa. This is usually as simple as whisking cocoa powder, sugar, a pinch of salt, and milk in a saucepan. You can also use any store-bought hot cocoa mix to make things easier.
You can then infuse it with THC by adding a dose of cannabis tincture. Alternatively, you can add a small measure of Tinley's 27 Elixir Coconut Cask - this cannabis elixir will infuse your hot cocoa with the effects of THC along with a coconutty taste. Feel free to top your drink off with whipped cream and marshmallows.
There are tons of ways to spice up your fall beverages with THC. It’s usually as simple as adding THC tincture to your favorite drinks, but you can also use other cannabis-infused ingredients or even buy readymade cannabis drinks. You can buy all of these and more from one of our Rose Mary Jane dispensaries in California and Maine.
