It never ceases to amaze me how you can incorporate cannabis into different recipes, especially syrup. A multipurpose essential for any canna-kitchen is THC syrup. THC syrup can be used to sweeten beverages, flavour mocktails, add moisture to pastries, and even be taken as a daily supplement to treat pain and other physical ills without the need for additional flavouring. It’s simple to master cannasyrup, and as a home cook and aspiring mocktail mixologist, you’ll use it frequently.
What exactly is the THC Syrup.
Cannabis-infused simple syrup is known as THC syrup. Every simple syrup begins with an equal mixture of sugar and water. The mixture is then steeped with extracts, herbs, dried flower petals, or fruit to add taste. It should come as no surprise to you if you’re here that cannabis syrup also contains everyone’s preferred psychoactive cannabinoid, THC. There are two alternative methods for incorporating cannabis into simple syrup, which we’ll discuss later.
Simple syrup that has been infused with cannabis has an earthy flavour from the flavour of the cannabis flower that was used to manufacture it. The viscous liquid will primarily taste sweet, as it should! Most of it is sugar. Additionally, compared to other edibles, the flavour of cannabis will be significantly softer when used as a sweetener in beverages. In comparison to smoking or vaping, infused simple syrups will have a more gradual start but a stronger effect. In this page, you may read more about the consequences of various cannabis intake strategies, including edible cannabis products like THC syrup. The taste of the syrup makes it one of the few simple infusions you can consume in its finished form without adding to another recipe, even though the overall experience of consuming cannabis syrup will be similar to using other edibles (unlike cannaflour, cannabutter, etc.).
Is Lean the Same as THC Syrup?
In no way! Lean, also known as purple drink or sizzurp, is a particular beverage made by mixing codeine- and promethazine-containing prescription cough medication with soda water or Sprite. It has the potential to be dangerous, lethal, and addictive.
THC syrup is very different from lean, despite the fact that they have similar applications and appearances. Because cannabis-infused syrup is essentially sugar water without the addition of THC, it lacks both the addictive qualities and the risk that lean does. Additionally, there is no such thing as “THC lean.”
Benefits of THC Syrup for Health
Making and utilising THC syrup is simple and covert, which is its main advantage. This wonderful, almost magical elixir has many other purposes as well, just like cannabis is used for many other things. Cannabis syrup, like other edibles, can help you lead a more pleasant life by reducing nausea and easing pain.
Are you frequently sick (perhaps from medication or chemotherapy) in predictable situations? Anecdotally, edibles like THC syrup are used as a preventive; more and more research are proving the effectiveness of this. Cannabis-infused syrup can be used as a preventative measure and may help you avoid experiencing nausea at all. Active nausea is best addressed by smoking or vaping cannabis for rapid relief.
Chronic Pain Management
Cannabis syrup, like all infused meals and drinks, can be a great complement to or a great substitute for a more conventional pain management strategy. Some cannabis users find relief from migraines, inflammation, and pain from the nerves in THC-containing products like cannabis syrup. Additionally, by reducing a patient’s need for stronger painkillers, THC infusions can help patients cope with their side effects.
