How To Make Cannabis Infused Vodka: Three Easy To Follow Steps!

Cannabis infused vodka for weed cocktails or canna-shots

Excitingly, cannabis infused vodka is an excellent base for weed infused recipes. This is a unique base to cannabis cocktails. You can make amazing tasting cannabis beverages and delicious weed edibles!

Weed infused vodka is a mutli-purpose weed edible. Here’s Why:

Notably, infuse high proof alcohol to create a multi-purpose cannabis consumable base. Fortunately, your cannabis spirit infusion essentially becomes a cannabis tincture. Weed tinctures are typically added to cannabis infused candies and weed edible recipes. You can use your weed infusion in canna-cocktails, weed gummies, and beyond.

This is the need to know before you make cannabis infused vodka:

Are you using your cannabis infused vodka for cocktails? Most noteworthy, it is important to understand that this infusion creates a “cross-fading” effect. Consequently, this effect is powerful and not for everybody. In addition, it is important not to abuse this infusion by consuming too much of it. Interestingly, the effects of alcohol almost kick in straight away. In contrast, the effect of this canna-infusion can take close to an hour. Drink slowly and remain aware of timing.

Furthermore, if you are planning to use this vodka weed infusion for edibles, the steps are slightly different. Most notably, cannabis tinctures require the process of evaporation. Alcohol is evaporated by boiling off the alcohol content at a high heat. As a result, this will leave you with a pure cannabis extraction.

How long will this cannabis spirit infusion take?

The cook time of weed vodka is quite short. It only takes about 45 minutes to prepare the weed infusion. We recommend that you leave your cannabis cannabis infused vodka from 48 hours, up to 2 weeks. As a result, you will get the best flavor and potency from your cannabis alcohol infusion.

What cocktails pair nicely with weed vodka?

Certainly, this weed vodka blends well into many cannabis cocktails. Remember that your vodka now is slightly more herbaceous. You can use this to your advantage in your cocktails.

Finally, consider making a Cannabis Infused Moscow Mule, or an elevated Herbed Vodka Martini. For the reason that you do not like the taste of cannabis, mask your cannabis infusion with additional juices.

    I Wasted an ounce of weed by not decarboxilating it first. I put weed straight into the alcohol. It did nothing. I tried cooking the alcohol to add heat, that did not work either. ITS CRUCIAL THAT YOU PUT IN OVEN FIRST.

  2. Ray Shelley says:

    Can I use RSO for this?

  3. when defusing decarbed pot some say keep in the freezer while other say dark cool place ?? what to do?

    1. Mitchell worrell says:

      I wouldn’t freeze it might slowly infusing process.

  4. Question. I make my own spirits, they end up being 95-98% at final distill. Would the same recipie work with that? I dislike vodka with a passion. Also can you do the she thing with wine?

    1. It will, however depending how long you leave it for you may also end up with chlorophyll from the buds which will effect both colour and flavour, but that can be partly remedied by leaving the end product in the sun which should bring it closer to a red brown and slightly improve the flavour

  5. Can I use Vodka or Gin for my tincture and use my Source extractor for the recaptured alcohol?

  6. 5 stars
    Thanks for the tips. This forum was hilarious!!!

  7. Is heading up the weed in the oven necessary? Would letting it sit for a lot longer than two week counter at that? Lastly, would adding oil, like coconut oil in the vodka help with the absorption?

    1. Mitchell worrell says:

      I toasted mine on the charcoal Webber for about a 1/2 hour. Looked and smelled beautiful then infused it in vodka. Made a screwdriver …..3 sips and I’m faded good luck everyone be safe.

    2. Amy Thumser Williams says:

      Yes, because weed HAS TO be heated up for you to get high from it, it’s very important.

    3. You have to heat weed to get high. It changes THCA to THC.

    4. Michelle Schippers says:

      Heating is DEFINITELY important. You need to convert the THCA into THC. And to do that you require heat. Please Google it.

  8. Robin Brouillette says:

    I am trying to infuse RSO into alcohol……tequila, rum, etc. I already have the RSO that I made. Just looking for ratio and what the process is.

  9. Can this same recipe be used for a cognac.

  10. So could I use 6 or 7 grams of already vaped bud in a 1/2 gallon of vodka with the same times, or will it take longer?

    1. Great question I had the exact same one it seems your question got missed hopefully we can get an answer.

  11. Seems like a low dose of bud 🤷🏾‍♂️

    1. Mitchell worrell says:

      I used 5 g for a 5th. Perfect amount I believe

    2. 1 gram of 20% flower yields 200mg of active THC.. in one bottle (750 mL, which is roughly 24 ounces) that amounts to approximately 15mg of THC per 2 ounces of Vodka (the standard amount in a large drink).. 15 mg of THC is perfect for most people

      1. Where do you store the finished product?

  12. Why is high Alcohol content better?

    1. Matthias Sommer says:

      Because the cannabinoids are alcohol soluble (and not water soluble). In other words thc and water don’t mix. So more alcohol means less other stuff (mostly water) which leads to faster extraction.

  13. RastaInTraining2212 says:

    Quick question. I have made an infused vodka, tequila, and rum and so far the end result is always a bitter tequila flavor. Would you recommend using more low grade bud or less high grade? My end goal is to have the infused liquor actually taste decent

    1. To start with a disclaimer, i have never made this. But try steeping the cannabis in water at 100C for 2-3 hours, leaving the buds whole and don’t decarboxylate in the oven. Then remove buds from the water and and add them to the wodka to infuse it. The plant-tasting components like chlorophyll are water soluble, the the idea is to remove them and keep the good stuff.

      1. Mr Jack Schit says:

        You need to decarb the bud otherwise it is not active and you will fail to create a cannabis infused product.

  14. Hey there-

    During decarboxylate stage, you say to coat pan with aluminum foil? Does that mean over the weed or under the weed?

    1. Michelle Schippers says:

      And COVER with aluminum foil. It will help keep the smell down if you have neighbors to be concerned about.

    2. Michelle Schippers says:

      Parchment paper NOT aluminum foil. You can use an unlined glass pan.

    3. Always under. And not super tight to the pan. This prevents burning on pan contact.

      A second piece over can also help regulate the temp for describing when your oven kick is back on to maintain its average heat.

      1. *decarbing

    4. under

  15. You don’t say what size of vodka?
