How to make Cannabis Ice Cream
Cannabis and ice cream are a summer match made in heaven.
Ice cream infused with Cannabis or flavoured with terpenes will soon be popping up everywhere this summer across South Africa.
The taste of cannabis is an enigma, as the plant is usually inhaled or mixed into a more dominant flavour (dagga cookies, for instance, which taste mostly of chocolate). To craft a true cannabis flavour is a challenge some chefs and food entrepreneurs are now trying to master.
Besides THC, expect to see CBD being added into ice cream too. CBD likes fat and oil, and milk is a fatty oily drink that we have every day. Adding CBD to milk will be a natural progression. We already see CBD in water all over America, and now ice cream. CBD is going to be the next additive in everything.
It would be negligent not to mention the fact that any cannabis product that appeals to children—or even other adults – must be properly labelled, and, in the case of yummy ice cream, be locked away in an adult-only freezer far from tiny prying hands.
Below is a simple recipe for you to try out. The recipe does call for the use of “Cannabutter“, you can read more about how to make it at home or you can buy the Magical Butter Machine which makes making Cannabutter as easy as making the Cannabis ice-cream recipe below.
