THC Syrup: How It’s Made and How to Use It

Edible cannabis products keep getting more and more unique, and THC syrups are no exception. Suitable for novices and experienced cannabis enjoyers, syrups are a super unique way to enjoy THC.

In this post, we’ll explain what THC syrup is, how it is made, some common flavors, and how you can use it for yourself!

What is THC Syrup?

THC syrup is a concentrated liquid infusion that contains THC, the primary psychoactive cannabinoid found in cannabis. It is usually similar to the syrup you would drizzle on pancakes or may have a cough-syrup-like viscosity, but with a cannabis-infused twist. 

Typically, THC syrup is a flavored syrup containing a water-soluble THC powder or a cannabis concentrate. This varies depending on the producer of the syrup and their unique production process. They can also come in varying potencies, flavors, and consistencies for different uses and preferences.

How is THC Syrup Made?

There are a few ways THC syrup can be made. Here are a few of the most common types.

  1. Distillate Syrups: Distillate syrups are made by combining simple syrup-like ingredients with cannabis distillate. The mixture creates a potent syrup that can be ingested for a more potent experience.
  2. Powder Syrups: Powder-infused syrups usually contain water-soluble THC powder. Powder has a higher bioavailability than other edible cannabis products. This results in a faster-acting edible product with potent effects.
  3. Decarbed Syrups: Often used in “homemade” cannabis syrups, this type of THC syrup is made by infusing decarboxylated cannabis flower into a simple syrup. This type of syrup tends to be less common in cannabis dispensaries. It’s also typically less potent than the two types of syrup above.

Keep in mind: Different manufacturers will use different ingredients and production methods to create their syrups. They will all vary in potency, sugar content, and flavors. You can visit a production company’s website to learn more about their ingredients and recipes. This can help you find the right syrup for you!

THC Syrup Flavors

THC syrups come in a variety of flavors, but here is a quick list of some of our favorites!

  1. Bosky – Strawberry: This sweet, fruity syrup is perfect for mixing into juices and sodas for added flavor and a THC kick. This syrup is also made with water-soluble THC powder, making it ideal for mixing into other drinks to create your own cannabis-infused beverages.
  2. Enjoy Hemp – Euphoria: This delicious, blue-raspberry-flavored syrup is infused with live rosin and contains 5mg of THC per serving. You can mix this syrup into your favorite drinks for an added touch of THC and yummy blue raspberry flavor!
  3. Bosky – Caramel: If you’re not into fruity flavors, this caramel-flavored syrup from Bosky is a great choice. You can add it to your iced coffee or some kinds of soda for a unique flavor and some THC.

How to Use THC Syrup

When it comes to using THC syrup, the possibilities are pretty endless! There are variety of flavors available and many things you can pair them with. You can make anything from iced coffee flavoring to pancake syrup. Here are a few ways you can use THC syrup.

Added to Your Favorite Drinks

This is probably the most common way to use THC syrups, as their flavors tend to complement a variety of beverages. Some syrups are also designed to mix with other liquids, which can also help dilute their potency.

Fruity-flavored syrups like strawberry, pineapple, or grape are delicious when added to fruit juices, fruit or citrus sodas, or even sparkling or still water. They add flavor, sweetness, and THC to your drink of choice. You can also experiment with adding fruity syrups to other things like frozen drinks or teas.

For more indulgent flavors like chocolate or caramel, you can add these syrups to coffee, some teas, and even some sodas. THC syrups work well in a large variety of drinks. They can even be used to create cannabis-infused mocktails!

Added to Snacks and Foods

If you have any favorite recipes that include a drizzle of a sweet or indulgent syrup, you can substitute that for a THC-infused syrup to level up your recipe! You can also add them to things like waffles and pancakes, cakes, and other sweet treats. Some flavors also work well in more unique foods and recipes like marinades and salad dressings. Keep in mind though, that some syrups may not hold up well under high heat!

Some baking recipes can also have THC syrup added to them. You can use them in recipes that call for syrups or sweeteners that also will bake in a low-temperature environment.

Use THC Syrup Sublingually

The cannabinoids in THC syrup can also be absorbed under the tongue, just like they can with tinctures. You can use a dropper or measuring spoon to help dose your syrup and hold it under your tongue for a few minutes to absorb the cannabinoids. From there, you can swallow the syrup and enjoy the effects!

Final Thoughts

Before you go, be sure to start with a low dose and go slow when trying any new cannabis product. This will help you find your ideal dose and understand how different cannabis products affect you!
