Pancakes are great every day, but apparently, it's National Pancake Day today. Since pancakes are nothing without syrup, why not make a little cannabis-infused maple syrup as a topping?
Marijuana-Infused Maple Syrup Recipe
3 grams of Marijuana (your choice of strain!)
8 ounces of Maple Syrup
Stainless Steel Mixing Bowl
First, you'll need to decarboxylate your weed for approximately 45 minutes at 176ºF-293ºF in the oven depending on THC content. For cannabis with around 3-5mg/g of THC, stay towards the low end of the range. For cannabis with around 10-15mg/g of THC, stay towards the upper end of the range.
Grind up your cannabis and place it in a deep baking dish covered tightly in foil. Lightly toasting the weed makes sure that all of the THC is activated to the fullest!
Make a double boiler setup (a heat-resistant bowl over a pot of boiling water) to heat your maple syrup up to 160ºF, using a confectioner's thermometer to measure the temperature.
Add the ground marijuana to a cheesecloth bag so it’s easier to strain out of your syrup later in the process.
Submerge the cheesecloth bag of cannabis into the heated maple syrup.
Infuse for no less than two hours (or else it will not have the desired effects).
Check your syrup every so often to make certain that the water in the bottom layer of your double boiler hasn’t steamed away. This water layer is what allows for even heating and no burning.
After you remove the cheesecloth bag of cannabis, squeeze it thoroughly to get every last drop of your marijuana-infused maple syrup out.
Let cool and use on pancakes, waffles, or whatever you'd like.
Bet you thought getting high couldn't get any sweeter!
