What’s more comforting than a nice hot chocolate? Not much! However, we think we’ve found one thing that may well be preferable, and even more relaxing; cannabis-infused hot chocolate.
We will warn you that cannabis hot chocolate is here to stay. Once you’ve tried it once it could become your favorite, especially if you live somewhere the evenings get cold and you just want that lovely warm comfort.
Of all the ways to consume cannabis, this is one of the most enjoyable. It may not be traditional but if you get it right then it can be very satisfying. As you will see from our weed hot chocolate recipe.
Before we actually get into the recipe, a little bit on the marijuana.
For the best cannabis-infused hot chocolate then it is not just about putting whatever weed you have in there. It’s important to know a little about strains. The staff of any cannabis dispensary will be able to help with this. You can discuss your needs and how experienced you are, plus the reasons you take marijuana. This can vary based on a number of factors. Do you need to stay alert or do you need cannabis to help get to sleep? Are you looking for pain relief? Choose appropriate marijuana and grind it before you get started with actually making the hot chocolate.
Basically, the recipe calls for making cannabis-infused milk first, and then you are going to add your chocolate.
- Firstly, you need to make sure your cannabis bud has been prepared. Grind your dry bud and set it aside ready to add when needed. The first step is to put the milk and water in a saucepan and bring it to the boil. Once it has reached the point where it starts to boil, lower the temperature slightly so it is simmering but not bubbling too much. At this stage, add your cannabis to the pan. Simmer them together for around 30 minutes and make sure you are stirring every few minutes.
- Secondly, we need to strain the weed. You can pour the milk through a cheesecloth to do this, it will eventually go into another saucepan, but you can do it straight into a pitcher. Attach the cheesecloth and keep it in place by using a rubber band. Pour the milk straight in. This will filter out the bits of bud you don’t want. Make sure you pour slowly so you don’t lose any.
- Next up, pour this back into a separate saucepan (or rinse the original and use it). Add your chocolate flakes and melt them into the pan until it is warm and chocolatey. This is also the time to add other ingredients to add a little bit of variation. The amount of chocolate you add should vary depending on your taste and the size of the mug you are going to drink it out of.

- chocolate sauce
- whole milk
- the bud
- sauce pan
- rubber band
Pour ½ quart of whole milk into the sauce pan and bring to boil.
Grind the bud in the grinder and add it to the boiling milk.
Simmer for thirty minutes or so and remember to stir the mixture often.
Next, place the cheesecloth on the pitcher and secure it firmly to the rim using a rubber band. This will give the cheesecloth enough stability to strain the milk.
Once the cheesecloth is secured, slowly pour the milk through it into the pitcher. The cheesecloth will act as a strainer.
Fill the mug with the strained milk and pour chocolate sauce into it. Stir and serve hot. Your steaming cup of cocoa hot pot is ready.
