Cannabis popsicles might sound like a good idea to adults who have the ability to grow their own cannabis or purchase their own legal marijuana products, but it raises an important hot topic about proper storage of cannabis products. The original cannabis popsicles recipe appeared on Leafly.com with a warning about keeping cannabis edibles away from children. As an industry, the responsibility is put onto the patients and the recreational users to keep their cannabis away from children. If you plan on making this recipe, make sure that your kids don’t become a statistic that brings down the growth of the industry.
There’s nothing better than a popsicle in the summ— Oh wait, yes there is. You could also have a cannabis-infused popsicle in the summer. I don’t know about you, but I’d take the latter any day.
These sweet hot-weather treats combine fresh strawberries and creamy coconut milk into an ice pop that’s at once fruity, tropical, and delicious to the last bite. They’re gorgeous, too—swirls of reddish-pink and pinkish-white combine to make something that looks almost too good to eat. (Almost.) Mix up a tincture with the strain of your choice (may we recommend Strawberry Ice?), get out those popsicle molds from the back of your cupboard, and put them to good use with the recipe below!
Note: Be sure to keep popsicles and all other cannabis-infused edibles well out of the way of curious kids.
Start to finish: 6 hours 30 minutes (active: 30 minutes)
Yields: 12 popsicles
Approximate dosage: 5mg per popsicle*
*Note: Potency may vary widely depending on your tincture.
*Note: The amount of tincture specified in this recipe is a suggestion; the actual amount you use should be modified based on the strength of your tincture and the potency you desire. Dosing homemade edibles can be tricky (click here to learn why), so the best way to test for potency is to start with one portion of a serving, wait one to two hours, then make an informed decision on whether to consume more. Always dose carefully and listen to your body, and never drive under the influence of cannabis.
