What Is Cannabis-infused Simple Syrup?
Cannabis-infused simple syrup is a sweet, thick liquid that has been infused with cannabis. It is made by combining equal parts sugar and water and then steeping extracts, herbs, dried flower petals, or fruit in the mixture for flavor. THC syrup, specifically, is infused with everyone’s favorite intoxicating cannabinoid, THC. There are two ways to infuse simple syrup with cannabis: by using decarboxylated cannabis or by adding a cannabis concentrate or extract to the mixture. The resulting syrup has a slightly earthy taste due to the cannabis flower used to make it, but it is primarily sweet. When used as a sweetener in drinks, the cannabis flavor is much milder than with other edibles. Infused simple syrups have a slower onset but more powerful effect than smoking or vaping. Cannabis-infused simple syrup is an important staple in your bar pantry as it adds sweetness to your drinks and can help balance acidity and bitterness while rounding out harsher alcohol characteristics when making cocktails.
Benefits Of Using Cannabis-infused Simple Syrup
Using cannabis-infused simple syrup for your Kool-Aid has several benefits:
1. Faster Onset Time: Compared to other cannabis-infused edibles, THC syrup has a faster onset time. This means that you will feel the effects within 30 minutes of consumption, making it a great option for those who want quick relief from pain, anxiety, or stress.
2. Discreet Consumption: THC syrup is a smokeless way to consume cannabis, making it a more discreet option for those who want to avoid the smell of smoking or vaping.
3. Long-Lasting Effects: THC syrup provides long-lasting relief without the harm associated with smoking cannabis. This makes it a good option for those who need pain relief but don’t want to consume high-fat edibles or use cannaoil or cannabutter.
4. Easy Dosing: THC syrup is easy to dose because it comes in a liquid form. You can easily measure out the amount you need and add it to your Kool-Aid without having to worry about overconsumption.
5. Delicious Taste: Cannabis-infused simple syrup tastes sweet and can be added to any recipe that requires sugar. It is a great way to sweeten your Kool-Aid while also getting the benefits of THC.
Ingredients Needed To Make Cannabis-infused Simple Syrup
To make cannabis-infused simple syrup, you’ll need a few key ingredients. First, you’ll need 3 cups of filtered water and 3 cups of fine granulated sugar to make the simple syrup base. Next, you’ll need 2 tablespoons of vegetable glycerin, which is available at health food stores. This ingredient is added to bind with the psychoactive cannabinoid THC, ensuring that you’ll feel the effects of the cannabis.
You’ll also need 2 grams of finely chopped or ground cannabis. This can be any strain of your choice, but it’s important to decarboxylate it first to activate the THC. You can do this by baking it in the oven at a low temperature for about 30 minutes.
In addition to these ingredients, you’ll also need a jar, bottle, or other container to store the finished syrup in. A strainer and/or cheesecloth will also be necessary to strain out any plant matter from the mixture.

Dosage Considerations And Potential Effects Of Cannabis-infused Simple Syrup
It’s important to note that the potency of your cannabis-infused simple syrup will depend on the strength of the cannabis used and the amount of syrup consumed. As with any cannabis product, it’s essential to start with a low dosage and gradually increase until you find your desired effect.
Consuming too much cannabis-infused syrup can lead to unwanted side effects such as dry mouth, paranoia, and anxiety. Additionally, the high sugar content in the syrup can be unhealthy when over-consumed. It’s crucial to keep track of how much syrup you’re adding to your Kool-Aid and to consume it in moderation.
When using cannabis-infused products for medicinal purposes, it’s best to consult with a doctor to determine the appropriate dosage for your specific condition and physiology. Cannabis can help alleviate various medical concerns, including pain and inflammation, nausea, insomnia, stress/anxiety, skin issues, and much more. However, it’s crucial to use cannabis products responsibly and under the guidance of a medical professional.
