Bhang is a very popular Indian drink made with the leaves and the flower buds of the cannabis plant. Bhang is a favorite drink of the people of India where Bhang is consumed as a part of the celebrations during the Holi or the Festival of colors.
Indians consider Bhang to be auspicious and is associated with Lord Shiva. Now drinking Bhang has become a daily practice. Although, bhang can give you a hangover, it is not considered to be a drug. Bhang has been consumed over the ages as a natural appetizer.
marijuana milk or cream can be used in many recipes,use when oil or butter are not used, and it is great with chocolate chip cookies.
Because THC is fat soluble it is best to use whole milk or cream--The more fats the better the transfer.
Warm Whole milk over a low flame (must be whole milk or cream). wait until it is just under boiling, and add marijuana in the desired quantity.Here I used 3g of cannabis bud, (dry and broken down) for a pint of heavy whipping cream.
Keep an eye on the temperature and stir often to avoid boiling over. Simmer for 10-15 minutes, and strain through cheese cloth or strainer*.Squeeze the milk from the cheesecloth or press cream filled cannabis with a spoon in order to remove as much Bhang as you can.
Serve warm and sweeten with honey, or serve cold. I like to make chocolate milk.
