Bhang is a cannabis infused beverages that has been used throughout the Indian subcontinent for centuries. It is most commonly served during the Hindu festival of Holi in India and Nepal.
This recipe will make a potent batch of bhang. When using this recipe, only consume 1 to 2 ounces at a time, and wait at least 90 minutes before deciding whether or not to have more. For a less potent batch, use half the amount of cannabis.
