Believe it or not, the 1 gram cannabutter recipe is real and it works! So, a few weeks back I got my hands on some pretty potent Lemon OG Kush - 2 grams of flower to be exact. Rolling one gram up into a nice joint, I sat leisurely and well-medicated in my kitchen thinking, 'Maybe I can make cannabutter with this 1 gram that I have.'
From the time we were little kids, we have always enjoyed the wondrous flavors infused into lollipops. Luckily, we now have lollipops fit for the adult connoisseur. These tasty treats won’t take longer than 15-20 minutes and are a simple way to make some tasty medication. Let’s get started!
My dad was diagnosed with cancer mid 2016 and passed away early 2017. Short time before he passed away, and despite his social morals, he surrendered to his pain and agreed, after a lot of convincing, to experimenting with Marijuana. I was excited that I will finally get high with my dad, which I think one of the best social activity every father and son should attempt.
When you smoke your weed the traditional ways, even when you use a vaporizer, the process of "decarboxylation" happens automatically, which basically means heat activates your cannabis. On the other hand, if you were trying to make edibles, you will be missing the "heating" part, therefore an extra step should take place before making your cannabutter. Decarbing the weed. Without this process, the herb will have less THC, and eventually less potency and psychoactive capabilities. (Check our blog post Marijuana Effects: THC and CBD, and the Entourage Effect)
The world was all rainbows and unicorns. The Baklava Susan baked, as far as I know, with love, was one of the best I've ever had, but I wasn't sure if I liked it because of her, or the other way around. After I lost all strings with once used to be a good friend, whilst obviously still retaining warm memories, I decided to test this theory and try the recipe myself.
Natalie is one of my good stoner old friends who's been always into baking. One evening we were hanging out and she decided to make banana bread, and I was like "why don't we try a magic one" - We agreed. On that same night, it took us 4 batches to be able to get to the right recipe. and here it is.
Tania is a very nice British lady who inspired me to attempt making this recipe. She introduced me to "Golden Milk" and I took it from there.
The main ingredient to make Golden Milk is turmeric. Turmeric grows wild in the forests of South and Southeast Asia where it is collected for use in Indian traditional medicine. It's also one of the key ingredients in many Asian dishes. It's used though as a coloring agent - not of as primary value. Read more about this amazing spice here.
“Special brownies” need no introduction to the marijuana edibles community. For those who don't have easy access to quality weed brownies, even if they live close to a dispensary: Go homemade. They will taste better, you will also have good control the amount of cannabis you want to put in there. I suggest to use full 3 grams of cannabis for this recipe, however, if you tried it out and felt it's too much of a dose for you, you can use less.
Having a cannaoil in my house is one of the essential things that I can't live without, like cumin. Or TV. Or weed for that matter. And if you haven't discover the magic of eating your cannabis, you're about to have a complete different journey than the one you've already had.
One of the great things about Marijuana that it has endless ways to consume it, and people are getting innovative in this department. Smoking it is just the old fashion way. When it comes to edibles, it can get VERY creative and experts have came up with tons of ideas.
Recently we have been very busy and eating in a hurry, this prompted me to prepare infused olive oil. This I always have in hand and use any time when I need to enhance my meal with some medical value. For infusion I used a cannabis strain rich in CBD, so I could afford a moment of forgetfulness and take some distance from my surrounding and daily life stress.
Such oil can be used in various forms, today it was used in the form of dressing added to vegetable tortillas.
I really like combining Cannabis with other Superfoods to fully enjoy the charms and the power of nature. For the preparation of this dressing I used turmeric, which also has medical properties...
Although I guess everybody loves sweets, when it comes to medicated food, sometimes it’s just safer to try something different, because when you ‘suffer’ from sweet tooth one cookie or cupcake is never enough. More savoury or more salty kinds of dishes with medical value work as good as a chocolate bar or some other baked goodies.
So when I feel a bit stress-down I like to treat myself with some good food for a better mood. We had burgers in mind for eating later, so I was looking for an idea of how to infuse mine. For me there is nothing better than a meal loaded with vegetables, so that’s how I created medicated broccoli dip- pesto. It’s perfect for burgers, sandwiches, also good for tortillas, pastas, addition to some salads or even you can munch it with some fresh veggies.
I prepared these chocolates with my friend, who suffers from chronic pain. She wanted to relax her muscles a little and smuggle valuable nutritional elements into her body whilst enjoying the taste of her medicine.
Decision were easy, homemade chocolates with Cannabis filling. I like these chocolates, because
The combination of hazelnuts and hemp seeds creates not only an extremely tasty combination, but provides a healthy snack complemented by a layer of chocolate to create this piece of sweet heaven.The number of chocolates can vary from the size of the molds. Of this amount of chocolate (minus 3 cubes for chef) we get about 30 pralines, which for my friend is one week without pain.
Sometimes our lives enter another track and rush like crazy. A lot of stress, doing business, paper-works, computer work, travels, recently we also engaged in agriculture and growing Hemp, which I am very proud off, but all of this takes a lot of time. Free time is so limited that I haven’t had time to write or to cook, so I decided to prepare the oil, so that it will always be available in case, my friends or I will need medical relief.
Preparation of the oil is very simple despite the fact that I'm doing a small amount, it’s enough for one or even two months. It can stand in a dark bottle in the refrigerator for a long time, just remember, that it is always well labelled and out of reach from children.
Cannabis salsa is a delicious variant of this Latin staple. This fresh and chunky cannabis salsa pairs perfectly with your favorite tortilla chips and can even be used as a delicious garnish for a number of pork, fish and even chicken-based dishes. Wake up your palate with these mouthwatering summer veggies and bright citrus flavors!
This is an awesome dressing recipe; that can be used just like regular ranch dressing; but please use in moderation.
After a long week one of my favorite things to do is to cook up something special. Compared to the powdered and refrigerated pudding I had as a kid, this blows whatever you think pudding is out of the park. Without a doubt, this recipe will have you coming back for more. These taste best after being chilled overnight, a great make-ahead dessert. I felt so strongly about this recipe, I made a gif.
