Nothing rings in the holiday season quite like a steaming cup of hot buttered rum. Cozy, filling, and bursting with rich flavor, this delectable drink can only get better with a touch of cannabis. Snuggle into your cushiest blanket (maybe even get acquainted with hygge culture) and make yourself a warming mug of hot canna-buttered rum for a toasty retreat from the cold.
When mixing cannabis with alcohol, it’s more important than ever to start low and go slow—be sure you’re working with a batch of canna-butter whose potency you’re aware of and comfortable with, and if you’re using THC canna-butter, we recommend keeping each serving under 5mg. Alternatively, consider using high-CBD canna-butter for a calming night in.
