At Tilray, we’re always on the lookout for new and interesting recipes, particularly during the fall (our favourite food season). One recipe we’ve recently become fond of isn’t a new recipe at all, but comes to us from the traditional Ayurvedic medicine of India. Golden Milk, as this warm drink is called, derives its beautiful colour from turmeric, a spice found in many cuisines throughout much of Asia. Turmeric not only provides a saffron-like hue but has traditionally been regarded as having many health benefits, such as aiding in relaxation. Modern medical scientists are currently investigating turmeric and the many health claims associated with it. In addition to turmeric, this recipe also features cinnamon, black pepper and ginger, each of these also rich in terpenes. We’ve given the recipe a little update to create Cannabis Golden Milk with the use of Tilray Drops.

If you choose to add Tilray Drops to this recipe, we recommend our CBD Drops in particular. As always, if you’re new to cannabis extracts, the key is to start low and go slow. The recipe calls for 10 drops (or approximately 0.66 mL), which will yield approximately 10 mg of active cannabinoids per serving. (The recipe makes 4 servings.)

Take a break from pumpkin spice mania and enjoy a mug of this warming, spicy brew on a crisp autumn morning—you’ll be glad you did.
