What Exactly Is THC-Infused Syrup?

You guessed it: syrup that has been enhanced with the psychoactive effects of THC. It is made by following the same straightforward instructions as any syrup: just boil sugar, water, and your preferred flavorings until you have a slightly thickened, sweet mixture that you can use to improve a variety of dishes, including desserts, cocktails, and confections.

Comparing Cannabis Syrup to Cannabutter: Which Is Right for You?

It’s likely that you automatically picture cannabutter when you think of cooking with cannabis because it’s been a staple in cannabis lovers’ kitchens for a long time. Butter’s high fat content makes it the ideal carrier for THC and other cannabis compounds that are fat-soluble and do not dissolve in water. Canna-oils have started to gain traction along with the growing popularity of vegetarian and vegan diets, providing meatless eaters with the ideal substitute. Now, cannabis enthusiasts have another lean, vegan-friendly ingredient to add to their meals: THC syrup (made with vegetable glycerine to ensure it packs the right punch).

How to Prepare THC-Infused Syrup

Here’s how to make delicious yet easy cannabis syrup at home using basic ingredients and tools without further ado.

Ingredients

  • 750ml water
  • 750g sugar
  • 2 tbsp vegetable glycerine
  • 2–3g dry cannabis flower or trim
  • Flavorings & aromatics (see our recommendations further below)

Equipment

  • Oven
  • Baking sheet
  • Baking paper
  • Saucepan
  • Funnel
  • Coffee filter
  • Bottle (for storing the syrup)

Directions

  • Preheat your oven to 110°C. Grind your bud or trim to a medium consistency while the oven preheats.
  • Place baking paper on a baking sheet and evenly distribute the ground cannabis on it. After bringing the oven up to temperature, bake the cannabis for thirty to forty minutes, making sure to stir it once so it heats through evenly. Decarboxylation is the process that is necessary to create powerful edibles.
  • Take the marijuana out of the oven. Add the sugar, water, and any flavorings or aromatics you want to use to a saucepan. After bringing the mixture to a boil, lower the heat and let it simmer. To make sure all of the sugar dissolves into the water, stir frequently.
  • Add your cannabis flower or trim that has been decarbed. Cook, covered or uncovered, for 30 minutes or up to 1 hour, depending on your preference (see Tips for Making a Strong and Tasty Canna-Syrup).
  • Take your syrup off of the heat after 30 to 60 minutes. Stir the vegetable glycerine into the remaining mixture after adding it.
  • Allow the mixture to cool before pouring it into a bottle for storage and passing it through a coffee filter. Your THC syrup will stay potent longer if you store it in an opaque glass bottle that blocks light, which breaks down THC and other cannabis compounds.

Tips for Making Potent and Delicious Canna-Syrup

  • Cover your syrup for the first 15 to 30 minutes of cooking if you want a more watery outcome. By doing this, some of the water in the mixture won’t evaporate.
  • Cook it uncovered for a longer period of time for a more viscous syrup. As your syrup cooks, you can add more water if it gets too thick for your taste.
  • Never forget to decarb cannabis before using it in a recipe. Your edibles won’t have the desired effect if the cannabinoids in your cannabis aren’t activated through proper decarboxylation. This holds true for different cannabinoids such as CBD and THC.
  • Use refined white sugar for a clear syrup. Use muscovado or brown sugar for a caramel-colored syrup with a brown hue. As an alternative, honey can be used to create THC syrup with a more nuanced flavor. Use 750–1,500g of honey to modify this recipe to make a honey THC syrup; the more honey you use, the sweeter and stronger your syrup will be.
  • Adjust the amount of sugar to suit your needs. The base recipe for syrup is a 1:1 sugar to water ratio, but you can modify it to your taste or intended use by adding or subtracting sugar from the recipe as needed.

Elevate Your THC Syrup with These Flavorful Additions

In order to make THC syrup, a basic syrup must be prepared and then infused with decarbed cannabis. But experimenting with different flavors is the true joy of creating canna-syrup at home. Below is a list of some of our favorite syrup flavor combinations; however, feel free to try more by experimenting:

  • Orange, lemon, or lime for a zesty new twist.
  • Any combination of blackberries, blueberries, raspberries, and strawberries.
  • Ginger, for a kick of energy.
  • Tea or coffee. Add your already-brewed coffee or tea to your syrup in step #5 of the recipe above to avoid overbrewing it, which will give it a bitter flavor.
  • Plum, peach, or apricot jam. If you would like to easily infuse your syrup with your favorite fruit flavors, you can simply add fruit jam to the recipe in step #4 above. Just be careful not to use too much sugar in the recipe so that you don’t have an overly sweet syrup.
  • Spices like cardamom, anise, cloves, cinnamon, and pepper can give a syrup a ton of depth and complexity.
  • When you bottle your simple syrup, add a few slices of fresh cucumber to give it a light freshness.

How to Use THC Syrup

Use your canna-syrup in the same way that you would any other plain or flavored syrup. Here are some examples, but feel free to use your imagination:

  • To add flavor or sweetness to tea, coffee, or other herbal beverages
  • To add taste to sponge cakes
  • Over waffles or pancakes
  • To add vibrancy to drinks
  • To create cool, refreshing beverages
  • As an alternative to sugar in recipes and baked goods
  • To enhance the taste, sweetness, and complexity of marinades and sauces
  • To finish off sweets (like ice cream)
