Cannabis infused rum, also known as “green dragon rum,” involves combining cannabis with rum to create a potent and flavorful drink. However, it is important to note that making cannabis-infused alcohol is illegal in many places and can be dangerous if not done correctly.
If you are in a location where it is legal to make cannabis-infused rum, it is important to follow strict guidelines to ensure safety and potency. Here are some general steps to consider:
Decarboxylate the cannabis: This involves heating the cannabis to activate the THC, which is the psychoactive component in cannabis. You can do this by baking the cannabis in the oven at a low temperature for about 30-40 minutes.
Combine the decarboxylated cannabis with the rum: Place the decarboxylated cannabis in a jar or bottle with the rum. Use a high-proof rum to ensure maximum THC extraction.
Store the mixture in a cool, dark place: Allow the mixture to sit for several days, shaking it occasionally to ensure the THC is evenly distributed throughout the rum.
Strain the mixture: After several days, strain the mixture through a cheesecloth or fine mesh strainer to remove any plant material.
Enjoy responsibly: Once strained, the cannabis-infused rum is ready to drink. However, it is important to consume it responsibly and in moderation, as the potency can vary depending on the amount of cannabis used and the strength of the rum.
