How to make THC Syrup: Recipes and Step-by-step Instruction

Being known as a versatile, discreet, and potent syrup, more and more people have wanted to find out how to make THC syrup at home recently. Well, you guys come into the right place. In this blog post on Bourbon O, we will provide you with a detailed step-by-step guide on how you can make it at home as well as show you some easy but interesting ways to consume it.

What is THC syrup?

Seasoned consumers might not be confused between THC syrup and THC oil, but I know that there’re many people out there who actually think that they’re the same. In fact, THC oil is one of the ingredients combining THC syrup.

That is typically a combination of cannabis concentrate (or hash oil), vegetable glycerine, sweeteners, and flavor(s). It looks like maple syrup with the texture of thick and sticky. Compared to other edibles, there is a lot of people admitting that THC syrup is a little quicker onset time than marijuana brownies.

For your information, you can also purchase THC syrup in some cannabis dispensaries across the U.S. However, it can be extravagant, and cooking it at home gives you the chance to figure out the right dose for you.

How to make THC syrup:


  • 3 cups water
  • 4 grams cannabis (You can use less or more if you want)
  • 3 cups sugar
  • 2 tablespoon vegetable glycerin


  • 1 jar or airtight bottle
  • 1 saucepan
  • Strainer

Type of sugar can you use to make THC syrup:

The type of sugar you use in making THC syrup is
totally up to you. But you should be aware that the
type of sugar you use will affect the color and taste of
the syrup. Generally, we use white sugar to get clear-
colored syrup.


Step 1: Decarb – You can move straight to the next step if you use hash oil or cannabis concentrate.

In order to get the THC in the cannabis flower switch into the active form, you first need to decarboxylate it.

You can place the cannabis flower in a sealable oven box or cover it using aluminum foil. Put it in an oven for 30 minutes at 250 degrees Fahrenheit.

Based on my experience, before putting it into the oven, you can use your hand to break up the flower into smaller granules first. If you do so, the smell will come out a lot more intense. But, don’t over-grind it, or it could be burned in the oven.

Step 2: Boil simple syrup

In order to have a simple syrup with a neutral taste, you should use an equal amount of water and sugar in the combination. When the water in the pot starts boiling, reduce the heat and put the sugar in. Then, keep stirring it until the sugar dissolves completely.

Step 3: Add vegetable glycerin

As soon as everything combines together, add 2 tablespoons of vegetable glycerin.

Step 4: Add your flower

Reduce the heat, add the decarbed flower (cannabis concentrate or oil)

Step 5: Waiting

Stir it occasionally and let it simmer for about 30 minutes.

Step 6: Cooling it down

Turn off your stove and let it chill down for about 15 minutes or so.

Step 7: Strain

Strain the liquid out into a jar and discard the decarbed cannabis flower.

Step 8: Enjoy your THC Syrup.

What does it look and taste like when it’s done?

The color of your syrup depends on the sugar and the quality as well as the quantity of the cannabis flower you put in. In general, the color should range from yellow to golden brown.

The syrup has a pretty neutral taste, it’s much like a simple syrup you use when mixing drinks.

How to use THC syrup

The beauty of THC syrup is that it can be used in a variety of ways, including as a topping for pancakes or ice cream. Taking too much the first time, on the other hand, may result in you becoming dangerously high, and no one knows what will happen to you. As a result, you should probably be well-prepared and avoid using THC syrup products on an empty stomach. Starting slowly and with a modest amount is the safest way to enjoy it.


Waffles without syrup aren’t waffles at all. Maple, vanilla, and even strawberry flavors are great toppings for french toast, pancakes, and waffles, among other things.
Remember to measure out your dose before pouring it onto your plate, as wonderful as this winning combo is. Try diluting your THC syrup with an unmedicated version if you like to precisely fill every groove of your waffle.


Much like a cannabis tincture, THC syrup also contains cannabinoids that can easily be absorbed under your tongue. So, you can simply put the desired amount of THC syrup under your tongue just like cannabis tincture, and leave it there for 2-3 minutes for the mixture to get absorbed in the mouth cavity before swallowing it.

Take a shot

Taking a shot of THC syrup just like you would go with tequila shots is one of the finest ways to consume it. If you’re at a party, this way will be quicker for you to have fun rather than eating cannabis cake or brownies. So, simply measure out your preferred dosage and enjoy! However, it takes a little bit slower onset time compared to the sublingual technique.

​​Mixed drinks

Because of the sweet flavor and thick profile of THC syrup, you can also use THC syrup in drinks, especially refreshing drinks. For those who don’t consume alcoholic drinks but still want to have fun at a party, mixing THC syrup with their drink such as soda, ginger ale is an excellent choice. Be patient with drinks because your stomach needs to digest the THC, and don’t immediately assume you need another drink after 15 minutes or half an hour.

In conclusion, Bourbon O has just shared with you the most detailed information about THC syrup and its usage. We hope that by following our instructions, you can make your own THC syrup at home. Have a nice day.
