For this cannabis alcohol infusion, how much weed should I use? How potent you want your weed tequila to be is completely up to you. Since it will be fairly potent for most people, we will use 3.5 grams of cannabis buds for 250 ml of tequila (or 14 grams in 1 litre). If you have little to no tolerance, I advise using 1-2 grams of cannabis per 250 millilitres of tequila. For our example, we will be using 3.5g (1/8th). You may use a concentrate such as hash oil or distillate to create a very strong weed tequila. Please be aware that the effects of alcohol and cannabis when combined have a strong "crossfaded" effect that some individuals may find overwhelming. When first evaluating the potency, don't consume excessive amounts of alcohol. Consume your weed tequila sensibly and in a secure setting.
How long should I let my cannabis infusions sit? If you don't have much time, you can perform a rapid infusion in one to three hours. If not, we advise shaking the cannabis-infused tequila twice daily for 7–14 days as it infuses. The flavours and scents of cannabis get stronger and more noticeable the longer you let it steep.
Is decarboxylation a good idea? Do you want your tequila to have THC and CBD infused for their enchanted effects? You should decarboxylate your cannabis before adding it to the tequila if the answer is yes. Heat is used during decarboxylation to activate the THC/CBD in cannabis. For details on how to accomplish it at home using an oven or other kitchen equipment, see our guide on weed decarbing. Don't decarboxylate your cannabis before infusing it if you don't want the effects of cannabis to permeate the tequila. By doing so, you may impart the flavour profile, scent, and terpenes of your cannabis into the tequila without causing any THC or CBD-related effects.
1 large mason jar or glass container.
1 Cheesecloth, clean leggings, or filter material large enough to encompass an eighth.
1 Bottle of your favourite tequila – I prefer Gold.
Tequila with cannabis infusions is a fantastic summertime fiesta cocktail to enjoy on Mexican night (or any other night, really). Remember that "crossfade" is real! Alcohol will start working straight immediately in alcoholic canna drinks, but the buzz from cannabis may take up to an hour to start, much as it does with edibles. All we're saying is to use this recipe responsibly and don't overdo it!
Let’s make some cannabis-infused tequila!
Fill a glass mason jar with your favourite tequila (or just use your tequila bottle).
Place 1/8th (3.5g) of your decarboxylated cannabis in the cloth or leggings. You can choose to seal the cloth to confine the cannabis, but it is also OK for the cannabis to float freely in the container. Just remember to filter your tequila afterward.
Submerge your cannabis-filled filter or cloth into your tequila-filled beverage container.
Place the beverage container in a cool dark place for 10 to 14 days, remembering to give it a shake once or twice per day.
And that's it! We hope you enjoyed this guide! Feel free to check out our website for much more recipes on the way, as well as cannabis news articles and informative guides!
