Organic Care of California BLOG

 Here is a few Blogs written by the owners Chaz & Shantel Cornellier about the industry and things they have experienced or learned while owning a cannabis delivery service in Chico, Ca in 2017 under Prop 215 and then moving to Sacramento to own a State Liscensed Delivery, C9-0000003-LIC, immediately in 2018. It has been a crazy ride and Chaz loves to explain what the market is doing and how he sees the company doing in the near future.

Homemade Cannabis-Infused Ice Cream: A Chill Recipe for Cannabis Enthusiasts

Are you looking to elevate your ice cream experience? If you're a fan of both cannabis and frozen treats, then cannabis-infused ice cream might just be your new favorite dessert. This delightful combination allows you to indulge in a tasty and relaxing treat all at once. In this blog, we'll guide you through the process of making your very own cannabis-infused ice cream, and we'll provide multiple ways to infuse, whether you prefer cannabis-infused oil or pre-made tinctures. So, let's get started on this chill journey!


For the ice cream base, you'll need:
2 cups heavy cream
1 cup whole milk
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
For the cannabis infusion, choose one of the following methods:

Method 1: Cannabis-Infused Oil

Ingredients for cannabis-infused oil:
1 cup of your favorite cooking oil (e.g., coconut oil, vegetable oil)
1/4 to 1/2 ounce of ground cannabis (adjust according to your desired potency)

Method 2: Pre-Made Tinctures

1-2 tablespoons of a high-quality cannabis tincture (adjust according to your desired potency)

Step 1: Infusing the Cannabis (Two Options)

Option 1: Cannabis-Infused Oil
Decarboxylation: Preheat your oven to 240°F (115°C). Spread the ground cannabis evenly on a baking sheet and bake for about 40 minutes, stirring occasionally. This step activates the THC in the cannabis, making it psychoactive.
Infusion: In a saucepan, combine the decarboxylated cannabis and your chosen cooking oil. Simmer on low heat for 2-4 hours, stirring occasionally. Be cautious not to overheat, as this can degrade the cannabinoids. Strain the oil through a fine mesh strainer or cheesecloth into a container for later use.

Option 2: Pre-Made Tinctures

No additional steps are required for this method. Simply measure out the desired amount of cannabis tincture for your recipe.

Step 2: Preparing the Ice Cream Base

In a mixing bowl, whisk together the heavy cream, whole milk, granulated sugar, and vanilla extract until the sugar is fully dissolved.
If you're using a cannabis-infused oil from Method 1, add the desired amount (start with 2-3 tablespoons) to the ice cream base and whisk until well combined. Adjust the amount for potency.
If you're using a pre-made tincture from Method 2, add the tincture directly to the ice cream base and whisk thoroughly. Adjust the amount according to your desired potency.

Step 3: Chilling and Churning

Pour the mixture into an ice cream maker and churn according to the manufacturer's instructions. This typically takes about 20-25 minutes.
Once the ice cream reaches a soft-serve consistency, transfer it to an airtight container and freeze for at least 2-3 hours or until firm.

Step 4: Serving and Enjoying

Scoop out your homemade cannabis-infused ice cream, and serve it in a bowl or cone. Garnish with your favorite toppings, such as chocolate chips, nuts, or fresh fruit, to enhance the flavor and texture.
Start with a lower dose of cannabis if you're new to edibles, as the effects can be potent and take longer to kick in compared to smoking or vaping.
Store any remaining cannabis-infused oil or tincture in a cool, dark place, away from children and pets.
Making cannabis-infused ice cream at home is a fun and delicious way to enjoy the benefits of cannabis while satisfying your sweet tooth. Whether you prefer cannabis-infused oil or pre-made tinctures, this recipe offers multiple options to suit your preferences. Remember to consume responsibly, start with a lower dose, and enjoy this tasty treat in moderation. Happy chilling!
