Medicated Whipped Cream

May 2022 by Angela Laufer

It’s never the wrong time for whipped cream! Whether you’re topping your favorite bowl of ice cream, shortcake, slice of pie, hot drink on the cooler days, or even by itself straight from the container (we’re not judging (; ) what better way to indulge, than making your own medicated whipped cream at home? This recipe makes medicating with cannabis edibles easy, by mixing already-activated concentrate into your cream and powdered sugar mixture AND includes extra-tasty twists to the regular vanilla whipped cream you’ve come to know and love.

**Before you start making cannabis recipes, it is important to be able to calculate how many servings you will be making, and the amount of THC in each serving. The advised medicinal amount of THC for an edible serving in the state of Arkansas is 10mg, although a good starting point for ingesting cannabis edibles is to limit yourself to less than 5mg THC; even less if you are new to THC-infused food. Use our dosage calculator to help calculate the potency of your individual servings. **

**Note: I used 1/3 of a 1 gram dabbable syringe, and 6 total cups of whipped cream. Using our website’s dosage calculator, I calculated with the concentrate that I used, one (half-cup) serving of whipped cream contains 9.65mg of THC, right under the advised medicinal amount of THC in the sate of Arkansas. Calculating your dosages according to the cannabis strain or product you are using, is a wonderful way to ensure your edible’s potency and desired effectiveness, safely and confidently.

Step 1: Prep Your Bowl, Mixer & Ingredients: A good tip for making whipped cream that holds its “peaks” as long as possible, is keeping your ingredients -and materials- coooold! Before you get started with anything, be sure to place your mixing bowl (or bowls, if you are making several different kinds) and beaters in the freezer for at least 5-10 minutes to chill.

*In lieu of a hand mixer, I used an immersion blender with a removable base, which worked great for both chilling and blending.

I like to get all my ingredients and measuring tools out before I start any recipe at home. If you are making basic, vanilla whipped cream, you only need 4 ingredients, including your activated concentrate of choice! You can also put a twist on your whipped cream with other ingredients. For example, raspberry jam, peanut butter and chocolate, espresso, maple syrup… the options are limitless!

Step 2: Making Your Whipped Cream: In a large mixing bowl, add your heavy whipping cream, powdered sugar, and vanilla extract. Start mixing on low speed, and as your mixture thickens, increase the speed to medium-high.

Step 3: Add Your Concentrate: With a dabbable syringe, dosing and mixing is made easy! Add your calculated amount of concentrate into your cream, vanilla and sugar mixture, and mix again at medium-high heat until all ingredients are blended, and stiff peaks form.

Dabbable Syringe

Note: I made my medicated whipped cream with a Queen Mother Goji Dabbable Syringe by BOLD, a 50/50 Hybrid concentrate including a few other cannabinoids for a nice “entourage effect”. You may be able to find it -or a similar concentrate- on our website via online ordering, in same-day pick-up. It’s measured by a syringe which creates ease in dosing, and it’s already “activated”/decarboxylated, so no baking or conversion through heat necessary.

Step 4: Adding a Twist of Flavor: Pure vanilla extract and powdered sugar alone make a tasty whipped cream, but why stop there? Below are some great ways to add a little twist, to top virtually any hot chocolate, dessert, breakfast pancake, waffle or crepe you can imagine:

**Use icing piping bags and tips if you’d like to get the “whipped cream out-of-a-can” look (:

Whipped cream may be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 2-3 hours. Feel free to adjust powdered sugar, vanilla extract, and additional flavors to taste.


Cooking with Cannabis-Infused Ingredients

A good starting point for ingesting cannabis edibles is to limit yourself to <5mg THC ; even less if you are new to THC-infused food. It can have the tendency to be a lot stronger, more intense, and can differ drastically from smoking it. For one, the effects can take anywhere from a half hour to 3 hours to fully metabolize, depending on an individual’s unique body and metabolic rate. In addition, because the THC is digested through your liver, and can more readily cross the body’s blood-brain barrier, the high can be stronger and last longer.

With that said, your edible’s potency depends on many factors, from it was prepared, to the potency of your starting product, as well as taking into consideration if your strain or concentrate is indica or sativa leaning. To test the potency and effect of your finished product, try a smaller amount (<5mg) and see how that dose affects you after an hour or so. Titrate your dose as desired, and you can then use this personalized “standard” dose as a baseline for your recipes.
