- Thin sieve or cheesecloth

Check out these steps on how to make cannabis milk:
Step 1: Before you begin making cannabis milk, the first step you need to do is prepare and clean the weed that you can use. Cleaning the weed helps remove the chlorophyll, which can prevent your milk taste as sour. It can also clear out the dirt, insects, and any other remnants that live in the flowers. This step is highly recommended if you are concerned about the flavor of the milk that you are going to produce.
Step 2: The next procedure is extracting the cannabinoid. Most of the consumers thought that if you clean the cannabis-using water, this could remove the cannabinoids. This thought is not true, and cannabinoids are water-resistant that cannot be absorbed easily by water. However, cannabinoids are known to be fat-soluble that can easily soak up into fatty materials such as whole milk, as mentioned to use with this recipe. After you get familiarized with how cannabinoids react when it gets contacted with milk, water, or other fatty materials, you can begin producing your own recipe.
Step 3: Turn the dry resinous cannabis into powder. The finer powder you produce, the better it permeates the milk.
Step 4: In medium heat, place the pan that contains the whole milk. Just let the milk simmer but avoid completely boiling it.
Step 5: You can now add powdered cannabis into the milk and gently blend all the ingredients.
Step 6: Let the blending bubble away for at least an hour while stirring all over again. Make sure to keep your attention on it, so it does not over boil.
Step 7: After an hour of blending the milk with the cannabis, you can now turn off the heat and strain the mixture in a sieve to an airtight bottle.
Step 8: Once it becomes cool, you can now place it in the fridge.
Cooking the milk for an hour is important to ensure that the cannabis’s decarboxylates completely bind into the milk. If you do not use this process, the compounds of cannabis will not initiate up to its full effect. The heat is needed to ensure that the THC and other compounds can do their desired task.
