Well, considering hops and pot are cousins. hop pollen = pot hash.

IMO, it’s a waste of pot.


why not just consume each product independently?

to those who have made it, does it add a particularly desirable flavor?

I bet it may be used in gruit styles. Maybe check that forum for advice.

Are you looking to get effects or just want the flavor?

Crossfaded RIS with pot additions similar to hops. For 5 gal, I would estimate 3-6oz of flowers. I would advise 1gal or smaller batches to help adjust pot additions and to see if its palatable.

I base this dose on a tea recipe that was legally made for a grandma with terminal lung cancer. Her dose was a 2oz cup of tea. This was a milk tea recipe and needs some sort of fat to transfer the thc. 1.5-2oz flower per liter but was strong enough that grandma quit taking the fentyl cold turkey, and started eating again. So only guessing but thinking 3-6oz flower/5gal depending on quality could let you enjoy a pint. Scaled to 1gal, 0.66-1.33 oz.

I would also think that a RIS or other high gravity beer with aging potential to allow time for flavors to mellow. Afraid it may tast very vegital. I would also think you would want relatively high ibus as the alpha acid may assist with pot extraction since alcohol will not be present during the boil and you are not adding much for fats.

Alternatively, could try like dry-hop additions in secondary. Ive heard these take 30-60 days for tinctures to infuse in 70% alcoholic slutions – sounds too long for a dry-hop and efficiency would be liw from low-ish alcohol

is it possible to infuse marijuana in a beer recipe? if so how? is it possible to extract thc from marijuana into the beer?

Mule News: Lagunitas Bets Big On Cannabis Beer

Over two decades ago Tony Magee, the founder of Lagunitas Brewing, famously said, “It takes a lot of good weed to make great beer.”

Hi-F Hops is a new brew from Lagunitas Brewing and is described as an IPA-inspired sparkling beverage made using everything Lagunitas knows about hops, but with zero alcohol, zero calories, and zero carbs. The brew is infused with THC from the finest, sun-grown cannabis using extract from AbsoluteXtracts. This marks the first time a major brewery has released a THC-infused beverage. It is available in two intensities: 5.5 mg and 10 mg per 12-oz can.

At this time, it is available at cannabis dispensaries in California. No word yet on plans to export it to other weed-legal states like Washington. Crossing state lines with such a product might be tricky, but Lagunitas does have a prodcution facility in Washington now. As this market grows, we can only expect players big and small to try and grab a piece of the ‘pot pie’.
