The small orange weirdly shaped thing by the known potatoes. It’s odd either people eat them or they don’t. They are extremely healthy for you. This little veggie not only boosts your mood, contains vitamin A & B (the seritionan that helps production on the brain). A mix of soft and crunchy ( when cooked crispy) a little salty & sweet. Bake it in the oven with coconut oil, make sweet potatoes chips or fries. As a meal stuffed sweet potatoes. Bake the potato soft, scoop out the inside fill it with your mixing veggies, meat, sauce. Bake again add a little cheese of choice to seal it all in.

Broccoli

I hate broccoli. There’s something about it that just doesn’t sit well in my mouth. Maybe its because I’ve never had it cooked the right way. But nevertheless broccoli is another amazing veggie to add to your snack time before bake time. Ever heard of the word “inflammatory”? If you have good on you. If you haven’t you have been living under a rock. Inflammatory – its when a part of the skin gets hot, spicy, red. At one point in your life you have had or will have some sort of degree of it. Not only does cannabis help with this. But broccoli is one of its main healer. (If you know how to cook it let me know)

Beer & Tea

Now first and foremost. To much of anything is a bad thing. They do say that a glass of red wine is healthy for you. To some it is obvious even has its own name “ cross faded”. But yes mixing an alcoholic beverage with you nightly join will giving you a higher THC level in your blood. Is it healthy? Meh a drink or 2 could be good for you. I sure do love my wine. And tequila does have properties/compounds that do help manage your weight and fight viruses. Tea, like Lavender Green tea Lemongrass & Ginger are all world known teas that carry many properties/compounds that are naturally healing to your body inside and out.

Mangoes

Holy shit. Mangoes are so good. I mean it’s got this crazy taste to it that makes you feel like your sitting on the beach with a daiquiri and an big fat blunt. Mango chunks on ice. Yes please. For this one you have to be a bit of a nerd. Drink it or eat it at least an hour before you smoke up. Mangoes have compounds/properties when infused with cannabis it intensifies your high. This compound is called myrcene terpenes. The only fruit that has the same compound found in cannabis.

 

The best part of legal cannabis is working with legal cannabis. And I don’t mean working in a pot shop. I mean working. Understanding and moving forward with cannabis. We now have such an amazing opportunity to really see what cannabis can do for our systems the environment and even our wallets.

Grassy-flavored pot brownies are a thing of the past, now that 10x Cannabutter has come into play. Sandy Moriarty is the Author of the newly published cook book, “Aunt Sandy’s Medical Marijuana Cookbook”, which puts a whole new spin on cooking with cannabis.

Moriarty’s book visually demonstrates the “secret” process for creating her magical 10x Cannabutter, which replaces the bitter “grass flavor” with a tasty, nutty butter flavor. The smokin’ hot cook book includes 49 easy-to-prepare, delicious dishes that range from her signature dessert, “Blue Sky Lemon Bars”, to her “Dizzy Bird Turkey with Stuffing” – a perfect dish for festive holiday dinners.

But what’s most intriguing about this soon-to-be-trend-setting book is the potential impact it may have on the legalization of medical marijuana, giving a homier perspective to the controversial topic. Could this magical herb become a welcomed addition to the standard spice rack?

If you have a chance to try out “Aunt Sandy’s Medical Marijuana Cookbook”, make sure to follow the recipes closely. You wouldn’t want your peanut butter blunt cake (*cough* sorry… I mean bunt cake) to come out half baked. We’ve included a copy of Sandy Moriarty’s recipe for 10x Cannabutter recipe below. Enjoy…

What you’ll need:
– 1 lb. Grade AA butter
– 4 oz. green leaf cannabis trimmings
– Water
– 1 large stockpot

Instructions:
1. Place all the ingredients into the pot and fill with water. Place on the stove and bring to a boil; the boiling temperature should be 212-degrees.

2. Boil the mixture for 3 to 4 hours. At this point, the trichomes will melt off the leaf material and cling to the lipids in the butter. Cook this mixture until the liquid is evaporated. The cooked down cannabis leaves should resemble spinach, while the butter is a beautiful amber color with a nutty-taste. There should be no excess liquid.

4. Now, separate the mixture by pouring it through a strainer over another pot. The “spinach” mixture should collect in the strainer while the amber liquid drains into the pot. Press the green leaves until all the moisture has been drained. Next, put the leaf mixture into cheesecloth and wring it out over the pot of liquid.

5. Refrigerate the amber liquid overnight. The butter will rise to the top and become firm again. Scoop the butter from the top, and voila! Your Cannabutter is ready to use in any of your favorite recipes as a butter or oil substitute. Keep the remaining amber liquid to cook with, as it will contain residual THC. Use it in sauces or to boil noodles – the sky’s the limit.
