Wake and bake - literally


It doesn’t take more than a little preparation to put together a freshly baked loaf of bread every morning. Give yourself the incentive that you need to make the tastiest nut, seed or regular loaf of bread by adding in hemp seed, CBD oil or cannabutter.

If you’re Vegan, go for coconut cannabutter. Some swear that the high is more intense in addition to it being healthier.

You can find the broadest range of cannabis at the online dispensary. There are endless options for your baked goods, infusions, and other foods.

  • 1/2 Cup Walnuts
  • 2 Tablespoons of Maple Syrup or Coconut Nectar
  • 2 to 1/2 Cups of Water


With this recipe, you pick whether you'll be using non-psychoactive ingredients or not. For the best THC concentration, make sure that you put your cannabis through a process of decarboxylation first.

  1. Combine all your dry ingredients in a large bowl and mix well.
  2. Add the maple syrup or coconut nectar and water
  3. Stir until all the water is soaked into the dry mix
  4. Line a loaf pan with parchment paper and pour in the mixture
  5. Press the bread evenly into the pan smoothing over the top
  6. Cover the pan of dough and allow it to rest at room temperature for at least two hours (24-hours is recommended)
  7. Preheat your oven to 350°F and bake your bread for roughly an hour and a half
  8. Once the bread has turned toasty and darkened in color, remove and allow it to cool completely on a wire rack

Start off the day with cannabis-Infused health tea or a smoothie


Consider the option of switching out your coffee or adding in a healthy digestive cannabis-infused tea into your morning routine. Go for something proven like green tea or take the practice a step further and get a dedicated detox digestive tea to which you can add your cannabis. Smoothies are another healthy, tasty way to start the day and supplement a healthy eating plan. Include cannabis in as many places as you can.

Health foods and drinks are easy to fortify with cannabis in order to guarantee that you get a complete range of benefits. With CBD-oil and other cannabis extracts readily available, it's easy to reinforce the effects of any drink.

Food & Drinks and Decarboxylation

Before cannabis undergoes a process of decarboxylation, THCA - the non-psychoactive compound, is at the highest concentration. In order to receive the effects of THC, including the psychoactive high, you first need to decarboxylate your cannabis. THCA begins to decarboxylate at roughly 220°F. It takes between 30 and 45 minutes of exposure to this heat for THCA to decarboxylate to THC and other compounds. Before making cannabutter or using fresh ground cannabis in any of your foods, drinks or infusions, first, get yourself an oven and a baking tray. Line your tray with parchment paper and spread out your finely ground cannabis over the sheet.

Let it dry out in the oven preheated to 220°F but not higher than 235°F for half an hour to forty-five minutes. This is the easiest way to carry out decarboxylation, but you can extract higher concentrations of THC when using slow cooking and a solvent.

Add hemp seed to your daily diet through stir-fries, salads & other meals 

Regardless of the legality of cannabis in your locality, hemp seeds are largely unregulated and one of the tastiest supplements to include in a healthy diet. Not only do they give you a good range of omega 6's and 9's but they're also one of the healthiest iron supplements around. Try to consume them shelled as the shells are one of the best sources of dietary fiber, helping control weight issues, and supporting optimal digestion.

Sprouted hemp seeds are tasty enough to have as-is but can be easily included in salads and any meal which involves sauteed vegetables. Try adding hemp seed to a mushroom stir fry to really bring out the flavor, as just one of the many ways that this versatile seed can be used.

Try more than one method of smoking or vaping, cooking or baking 

If you’re like smoking a jay, then give a bong a try. Never overlook the unique high of a pipe, and if you haven’t yet tried a vaporizer - what are you waiting for? Looking for the most intense high and quickest effects possible? The concentrate Shatter is a must. Same goes for time-tried equipment which you prefer. New rolling paper, different filters, a big brand new glass bong, or a bubbler which looks good enough to display are all welcomed in the home of any cannabis enthusiast. Don’t lock yourself to one type of smoking, one method of vaping, or a singular form of cooking infusion.

There are so many ways to include cannabis in your diet and lifestyle that exploring your options is a ton of fun and a constant motivation for finding the next most beneficial (or fun) high.

Stay at peak energy and enthusiasm with cannabis snacks

The nice thing about cannabis edibles is that you get a fixed dose with a fixed duration and a relatively predictable effect every time. Try a range of different products or infusions until you find a cannabis edible that gives you the mental clarity and productive enthusiasm that you need to function at your best. No matter how well you work, there are always ways to improve your performance and the satisfaction that you get from your experience.

With countless strains out there being refined into an endless range of tasty treats, you truly have no excuse to exclude cannabis from your diet even if you're not looking for a high. CBD-only and THC-infused tasties as ready and waiting.

Use cannabis-infused topicals and healthcare products


The pain relief and anti-inflammatory properties of cannabis are incredibly active when used topically. Don't forget that the very same CBD oil that you're using each morning can also be infused into a topical cream or treatment as well. Creams infused with cannabis offer immediate relief from pain and inflammation for many sufferers, while also being useful in the treatment of the swelling.

In actual fact, there are tons of healthcare uses for cannabis extracts. From wrinkle creams to shampoos and conditioners, be sure to explore all of your options.

If you live somewhere that the cannabis industry is still beginning to bloom, then don't b e afraid to try infusing marijuana with your own healthcare products and solutions. It takes little more than some coconut cannabutter and a few drops of essential oil and vitamin D oil (baby oil) to make your own topical that gets rid of pain and irritation fast.

Cook up a range of cannabis-infused sauces

Sauces and cannabis work. There is no simpler way to put it. Whether you're using the taste of hemp seed to unlock further flavor in earthy tastes, or hiding the strong flat green undertones of cannabis oil with a strong, zest sauce, the two combine wonderfully. Seasoned cooks will love the range of ways that you can incorporate cannabis and the terpenes extracted from everyone's favorite herb. In certain areas, you can even buy individual terpenes which give you access to unique aromatics similar to scents of citrus and other herbaceous oils like rosemary and thyme.

Yet, none of these plants is an exact match to the wonderful world of flavor that unlocks when you start using cannabis terpenes in your sauces and other food.

Experiment to find even more healthy ways to include cannabis in your diet

These aren't the only ways to include cannabis in a healthy diet. From using cannabis leaves, stalks, and dried flowers to smoke your vegetables or meat, to keto inspired cannabis coffee using cannabutter, there are always new ways to enjoy marijuana.

Grow your own massive buds using marijuana seeds in the US or go for a cannabis-infused product or extract - either way, there are always lots of methods of including marijuana in your lifestyle and diet.
