How to make CannaMilk (Cannabis Milk)

How to make cannamilk for use in various recipes. THC, the main psychoactive chemical in marijuana (cannabis), is not readily digested by itself. Because THC is fat soluble it can be extracted into milk in order to make it more accessible to the body.



  • 1 cup/250ml Whole Milk or Cream
  • 1/8oz/4g of finely ground cannabis*

*The finer the powdered cannabis, the better this method will work.


  1. Add the milk and cannabis to a pan over medium heat.
  2. Allow mixture to come to a boil, and then allow to simmer for about an hour.
  3. Allow to cool and then pour into an airtight container in the refrigerator until needed. Use before the sell by date on the milk used.

    I am making bhang for first time, have indeterminate quality of cannabis, first recipe I found online said nothing about grinding cannabis so hopefully that is not the huge deal. It also said to simmer for an hour. Am using whole channel islands milk in UK, high fat content…wonder what to do about any separation of the fats since that might strain out the THC too, presuming I have any reasonable amount to start with and not grinding the weed was not crucial to aiding release.
