Squiers specialty elixirs review

Eating weed is more than just popping a gummy these days. Inventive edibles like infused sugar and savory spice mixes make adding cannabis to food a piece of cake. Squier’s Specialty Elixirs follow this tradition, providing a hefty amount of cannabinoids in an easy-to-dose edible. The best part? The many ways to enjoy them.

The brand was founded after its namesake, chef Zack Squier, with the goal of making a THC syrup with 100% real ingredients. And it keeps its promise being made with agave, real fruit juices, purees, hemp extract, pink Himalayan salt, gum arabic, and filtered water.

Bottles of Squier’s Specialty Elixir contain either 100 mg THC or a 20 mg 1:1 THC to CBD option (your choice) of flavored THC syrup (prices range from $8 to $25). Bottles are available with delta-9 in almost 30 states, but that’s not it.

There are also Squier’s made with solventless hash rosin available through regulated dispensaries in Maine and Massachusetts in 100 mg and 10 mg portions. Either way, there’s potential for a potent mixer in a tiny package.

There are five flavors: Mandarin Mango, Raspberry Lime, Blackberry Lavender, Pink Pineapple, and Blueberry Lemon. Each bottle contains an all-natural, vegan, 100% fruit, fast-acting syrup with a whopping amount of weed. The product is intended to be a drink mixer, and they share many recipes, but the possibilities feel endless. Squier’s sent a package for the team to try, and in true GreenState fashion, we got creative.

THC ice cream sundae

While brewing weed mocktails is one of my favorite pastimes, the most delightful way I tried Squier’s Elixirs was on top of my ice cream. A THC ice cream sundae is a particularly sweet endcap to the day, especially at a high dose. The syrup doesn’t freeze when poured over ice cream, but it does thicken up against the cold scoops resulting in a pleasant mouthfeel alongside added flavor.

Squier’s sweetness and thick viscosity make for a perfect topping for an ice cream sundae or single scoop, but please remember to use the nifty dosage cap to avoid over-consumption.

Pot pancakes

Flavored syrup is a favorite at international pancake houses, and making it at home is as easy as heating maple syrup and fruit in a saucepan. Why not do the same with THC syrup? There are a few ways to pull this off.

Those who like warm syrup on their pancakes can heat the uninfused maple on the stove and add Squier’s after removing it from the heat. For a more low-maintenance approach just mix the THC syrup directly into the maple—or pour it right on the flapjacks. Choose your own adventure!

Slow-dosing stoner ice cubes

Squier’s Elixirs were created as mixers ideal for shaken cannabis mocktails or drinks. They aren’t simple syrups and don’t contain emulsifiers, so some voiced dismay that they may not stir into drinks easily. Those attempting to infuse a sparkling drink that shouldn’t be shaken or over-stirred might want to freeze their Squier’s.

Small, mindfully dosed ice cubes made from these syrups could slowly leak THC into a weed drink, which, depending on the person, might be great or an unwelcome way to consume. This isn’t a method for everyone, but people who like a slow-burn edible effect may appreciate consuming a drink that continues upping the THC as the ice melts.

Cannabis cake

Want to go big? Put this potent pot product into a cake by infusing the frosting or a jammy filling. There are many ways to infuse a weed cake, but when it comes to using Squier’s, the best point of infusion would be in the frosting or filling rather than baking it into the cake.

The fruity flavors go well with a lemon or vanilla cake, but a berry filling is never wrong with chocolate. Mixing Squier’s into these cake ingredients is simple: add the preferred dose and stir to combine. The other liquid ingredients may need to be adjusted, but this should be a simple baking move. Those who want their birthday candles extra lit this year might want to add a dash of syrup to the mixing bowl.

Squier’s Elixirs for more than just beverages

Cannabis drinks are having a heyday as an easily accessible consumption method for people more used to sipping a seltzer at a party rather than a puff on a joint. Squier’s Specialty Elixirs answers that call, but GreenState saw an opportunity outside of drinks with these syrups.

From pouring onto pancakes or topping ice cream, we found many ways to appreciate THC with Squier’s–and you can, too.
