Through a combination of life experiences, I have gained insight and inspiration which has made it possible for me to share recipes with you in this cookbook. I was always a writer and as a young adult I was published a couple of times in various magazines, but it wasn’t until I discovered a deep passion and dedication for a subject that I truly became immersed in writing. Currently, I am writing content for several websites on the subject of Marijuana.
I was diagnosed with Crohn's Disease in 2001. It is a digestive illness that causes painful inflammation and has few treatments. I suffered a lot during the first few years, doing what doctors recommended and having no success with traditional pharmaceuticals. I eventually turned to Marijuana for relief from my symptoms and have never regretted it.
Growing up, I was an only child. My mom worked several jobs, which left little time for home-cooked meals. With no real cooking skills to speak of, I had no option but to learn the basics quickly so I could successfully manage my illness. Soon, I began experimenting with Cannabis cooking, learning more and more conversion methods along the way.
Cannabis cooking can be tricky for people with IBD. In order to activate the THC into an edible form, it requires both heat and high fat, which is a stimulant for those with digestive issues. So, I have had to adapt edibles to my suit my specific diet. Specifically, by limiting fats and sugars while still converting the medicinal compounds as required. It has quickly become a passion of mine to share Cannabis cooking with others.
I currently work at the 420 Clinic in Calgary, Canada where I help patients obtain their medical Marijuana prescription and educate them on different strains and edibles. I am a fierce advocate for patient rights and for marijuana usage for all who need it. I will continue to advocate for an end to Marijuana prohibition and for full legalization; which in Canada is on the horizon.

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".
Me being the need-to-know-it-all that I am, I made sure to do some research before cheffing up this marvelous 1 gram cannabutter batch. Unsurprisingly, nothing conclusive came up for my results. Matter of fact, most people denounced that a 1 gram cannabutter recipe even exists.
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.
When thinking about weed edibles, sweeteners like corn syrup are usually overlooked. The great things about infused corn THC syrup are its ease of preparation and the many different applications. THC Infused corn syrup is a great starting point for many sweet-treats, including the increasingly popular hard candy route for those looking to ingest their cannabis in more a stealthy manner.
