One of my favorite formulas is a water that is spiked with rose and some hair and nail boosting silica. It tastes like plain old water with a whiff of flowers, but the mineral content is the real draw. Though the idea is amazing, an $8 water, even just a few times a week, could seriously cut into your bud budget. Or your anything budget.
I like my beauty water on bath days to create a real spa experience, so I often whip up something cucumber based to sip while bathing, using face masks, etc. I also usually smoke during this time, why not add the THC directly into the beauty water?
Rosewater Honey Water
Cannabis infused glycerin tincture*
Optional additives :
Omega 7 sea buckthorn oil
First skin the cucumber, then blend into a juice using either a juicer, muddler or blonder. If you’re using a blender or muddler add water to help get the nutrients (and liquid) out.
Add a splash of hot water to some honey to turn it into a quick syrup. Once dissolved add cannabis tincture and mix well. Add cannabis honey syrup to a glass with ice. Pour cucumber juice over ice, add a splash of rosewater, close jar and shake. If you are adding other supplements, add before shaking phase.
Pour cold still or sparkling water over the mixture, garnish with strips you peeled off the cucumber and some slices with the skin on.
*Glycerin Cannabis tincture:
In an oven safe container double sealed with foil, decarboxylate 3.5 grams finely ground cannabis at 225 degrees Fahrenheit. Put cannabis in a mason jar or vacuum sealed bag, pour over 2 oz vegetable glycerin and seal tightly. Place in a water bath at just under boiling for 1 hour. Strain and keep contents in a sterilized container. Stores indefinitely in freezer.
Try sipping this while holed up in the tub, it will change your experience dramatically. Now you can be high while you kick back and work on your face all in one simple drink. Not to mention it tastes light, fragrant, and incredible.
