Why infusing Cannabis is a great Summer Cookout idea

You’re already going to be cooking and gathering with friends, so what better time to bring your relax to the max by putting cannabis on the menu.
Want to know how? Here are some of our favorite ideas for a summer cookout menu.
Cannabis-Infused BBQ Sauce: The secret’s in the sauce!
Nothing says summer like cooking on the grill, and we’ve got the perfect cannabis infusion recipe to turn your favorite BBQ sauce into your new favorite stoner sauce.
Cannabis-infused BBQ sauce is one of the best ideas for summer cookouts because the sauce is so versatile: from wings, pork, steak, ribs, veggies, and even tofu, a great sauce compliments every type of summer cookout idea. It’s also quick and easy to create a cannabis infusion that can be added to your favorite.
This cannabis infusion can easily and quickly be made with edible gummies, and added to your favorite store-bought brand to create a sticky-sweet sauce.
Easy Cannabis-infused Sauce
Cannabis fusions are temperature sensitive and cannabis will denature at approximately 250 degrees. It’s important to keep a low temperature when cooking.
This infusion can be created in one of two ways.
The first is by adding a small amount of BBQ sauce to a saucepan. Set the heat on low, and add your gummies. Stir frequently until your gummies have completely dissolved.
Or you can dissolve the gummies with water and then add them to your favorite premade sauce afterward.
Cooking with a cannabis-infused sauce is a little bit different from your traditional barbequing technique. It’s recommended to use your favorite non-infused sauce for marinating and cooking.
After the cooking is complete, use the cannabis-infused sauce as a finishing glaze. Smother all over for a sticky sweet stoner BBQ add the cannabis-infused sauce as a finishing glaze at the end. Smother all over for a sticky sweet stoner BBQ.
We recommend keeping the dosing light to keep your partygoers relaxed and in good spirits.
To kick up your favorite BBQ sauce, NIMO CreateGummies in Crisp Apple flavor can be cooked down and added as a finishing sauce, for sticky sweet goodness that puts the “all good” in your cookout. These gummies contain full-spectrum Delta 8 that’s completely sourced from locally produced hemp flowers. And because Delta 8 is known for a mellow, euphoric, creative high, it’s great for having long conversations with friends
Delta 8/9/10 infused Cannabis lemonade
There’s nothing more refreshing on a hot summer day than an ice-cold glass of freshly squeezed lemonade, and what better way to chill out than to add a cannabis infusion to the mix. Tinctures are a great way to consume cannabinoids without smoking.
Here’s our favorite, simple but delicious, cannabis-infused lemonade recipe that only uses three ingredients.
First, we make the lemonade:
2 cup sugar
4 cups water
2 cups cold water
1 ¾ cup freshly squeezed juice lemon juice (3-4 lemons)
Start by making your simple syrup:
- Combine 2 cups of sugar with 4 cups of water and cook on medium heat. Whisk until the sugar is fully dissolved.
- Let the simple syrup cool in the pan for 10 minutes.
- Add 2 cups of cold water with 1 ¾ cup of lemon juice. Stir well.
Next, we infuse with cannabis:
First, decide what dosage you will be using. An easy way to calculate this is to take the dose you would normally take and, multiply it by 6.
For example, if you normally consume ½ bottle of a 100mg Hellfire Delta Shot, then ½ bottle times 6 would be 300mg or 3 bottles.
We recommend a smaller dose to keep everyone at your summer cookout relaxed and feeling social. Add a few drops of the tincture to the lemonade, and you’re done!
(This recipe makes 10, 18oz. servings)
HellFire Delta 8 Shot tincture comes in a great lemonade flavor that’s just waiting to infuse in your summer lemonade.
