You may have seen the Danish word “hygge” (pronounced “hoo-guh”) floating around before, but what exactly is the definition of hygge? In short, it’s about a feeling of contentment, comfort, safety, and well-being. It’s not about buying things, and has more to do with being present in an atmosphere or environment that feels like home.
Hygge is about being at peace with yourself. It’s that warm, fuzzy feeling you get when you’re taking a foggy morning hike or drinking a cup of coffee in your kitchen when everyone is still sleepy. It’s about sitting by a bonfire and passing around a pre-roll while everyone tells stories about good times past (and present).
Creating Hygge With Cannabis
All it takes to create hygge is intention to make moments that warm the soul and memories to last a lifetime. It can be small rituals like drinking a warm mug of hot cocoa, or lighting up a bowl of your favorite cannabis strainby the fire with someone you love. Contrasting intimate moments of warmth and comfort with chilly winter weather is how simple cultivating hygge can be.
This season, we’re enhancing that feeling with some cannabis-infused treats. Get those warm fuzzy feelings with your favorite hot beverage, topped with some THC whipped cream.
How to Make Weed-Infused Whipped Cream
Adapted from Bong Appetit: Mastering the Art of Cooking With Weed
NOTE: We recommend using kief and shake for best results, followed by sweet-tasting flower such as White Runtz, the Cereal Milk strain, or anything fruity (such as the Banana Pudding strain from Cypress Cannabis).
- 2 cups heavy cream
- 5 grams (1/8th ounce) Claybourne shake with kief (or cannabis flower)
- 1 tbsp powdered sugar
- ½ tbsp almond extract
- Double boiler
- Mesh strainer
- Large mixing bowl
- Electric mixer
Fill the double boiler to the appropriate line with water and bring to a simmer.
Set aside 1 cup of heavy cream. Pour the other cup into the top of the double boiler.
Grind your cannabis flower well and add to the double boiler. For 30 minutes, occasionally stir the cannabis and cream mixture.
At the end of the 30-minute period, remove the mixture from the heat and let cool.
Line the mesh strainer with cheesecloth and strain the mixture into the large bowl to remove cannabis solids. You can discard the solids.
Add the remaining cup of heavy cream and chill the mixture overnight.
Once cold, remove from the fridge and add the powdered sugar and almond extract. Whip until stiff peaks form, then serve on top of milk chai or a mug of hot cocoa.
