Cooking with Cannabis - Cannabis Lemonade

Sunshine is here (at least in BC), and that means it is time for a sweet, pink, cannabis-infused drink to get you through the hot days ahead. Our cannabis-infused strawberry lemonade recipes is a go-to for hosting a different type of elevated event that will keep you, and your friends on a whole new level.

As with all of our edible recipes, we want to remind you that starting low and going slow is important. Cannabis can affect people very differently, and it is best to play it on the safer side of potency. Also, this lemonade does not have any alcohol. That is because we do NOT suggest mixing the two, it's unpredictable and Health Canada frowns upon it.

If the dose recommended in the recipe is too high, or too low for your preference, adjust accordingly by simply putting less cannabis tincture into your drink.

Our favorite part about this cannabis-infused strawberry pink lemonade is how simple it can be if you don’t have a lot of time, or you aren't into the DIY approach of infusing and creating your own cannabis oil, you can purchase and use cannabis oil from a Licensed Producer usually referred to as a “tincture”. No crafting, baking, shaking or grinding required.

What you need:

  • Lemon juicer
  • Cup measure
  • Spoon measure
  • Pitcher
  • Spoon/spatula for mixing
  • Saucepan

  • ⅔ cups of sugar (this is not a diet conscious beverage and we’re not sorry)
  • 3 ¼ cups water
  • ½ cup lemon juice, freshly squeezed
  • 5 strawberries
  • 4 tbsp cannabis tincture (less is more friends).


  1. Juice the lemons and set aside in large pitcher.
  2. Combine sugar with one cup of water in a small saucepan and bring to a boil. Stir frequently to make sure the sugar dissolves.
  3. Allow the mixture to cool at room temperature and set in the refrigerator until chilled.
  4. Add the sugar syrup mixture to the lemon juice, along with the cannabis tincture, remaining water, and strawberries.

*Bonus: You can choose to blend the ingredients with ice to create a slushy style lemonade or just mix and pour over ice!
