How to Make Your Own Jamaican Jell-O Shots
These shots have THC and alcohol, making them the ultimate party addition.
Let’s face it – some cannabis consumers enjoy drinking alcohol while high. It can be incredibly fun with friends so long as you are aware of your tolerance levels and how you react to them in your system. Whether or not you agree with mixing the two is your preference, but for those curious enough to make some cannabis Jell-O shots, we’ve got a great recipe for you to try.
You’ll need cannabis-infused gin as one of the ingredients, so we’ve included how to make that first. Be aware that infused gin takes between two to four weeks to make.
If you don’t want to wait that long, you can simply make normal Jell-O shots and add drops of pure decarboxylated cannabis oil to the mix - but keep in mind this will make them taste a bit grassy and you’ll have to calculate how much to put in the allotted amount of shots you want to make.
How to make Cannabis-Infused Gin
You’ll need a bottle of your favorite gin, a mason jar, and enough cannabis to fill the mason jar. Fill up the mason jar with your cannabis strain of choice (including stems) but be sure to leave a bit of room at the top to add the gin. Next, fill it up with the gin and tightly seal the mason jar. Give it a good shake and place in a cool, dark place as it begins to decarboxylate and form a tincture.
Shake it once or twice a day. Choose when it’s ready in the two to four week window depending on how long you’re willing to wait as well as how potent you want it to be.
