Cannabis Coffee Coconut Chia Pudding

As I sit here eating the giant bowl of medicated pudding in the video I can tell you I am really happy with this recipe that just sort of happened. It is easy, delicious, and very pleasant way to ingest cannabis.

I don’t normally drink coffee but when the creator of Siddhi Bhang Infusions handed me some special pre-release sample pods of organic coffee and cannabis, I could only say yes. I’m a fan of their products.

I was told that these pods could be brewed in a AeroPress, Keurig, Cuisinart, Mr.Coffee, Bunn My Cafe, and Breville Gourmet Single Cup Brewer. I don’t have a single cup brewer but I was able to easily use a french press for a nice result.

The coffee came out great, smelled amazing, and the cannabis effects were what I was expecting. This particular coffee was destined to be put in the most delicious pudding I could put together in 5 minutes. High in fibre, medium chain triglycerides, and omega-3 fatty acids this little cannabis infused snack took care of my body and and my brain.

1/3C chia seeds

3/4C thick coconut milk

1T vanilla

2t raw honey  (or to taste)

1) Soak the chia seeds in the coffee until they have absorbed the liquid and become thick.

2) Blend the chia seed and coffee mixture with the rest of the ingredients until smooth. Pour into a bowl.

3) Chill in the fridge and serve when set.

I appreciated the effects of these coffee samples. The CBD/THC decaf felt exactly like I would hope that dosage and combination to feel- uplifted and pain free but not high. The 75mg Decaf was a potent dose and felt what I would hope that dosage in the daytime would feel like- uplifted, focused on productivity, and wonderful for pain. I so appreciate a good daytime medible and the people who make them.

Thanks to Siddhi Bhang Infusions for the samples. I love what you do over there.

MMJ Lemon Lavender Hemp Cookies

When somebody by the name of SafeTdriver did something nice for me this week, I responded by wanting to make him some one-of-a-kind medicated cookies.

Now, some of you may know SafeTdriver. He has a YouTube channel where you can see him medicating with cannabis, creating original hemp macrome everything, and educating the world about how he has been able to get off of pharmaceutical drugs for Crohn’s disease.

SafeTdriver’s hemp work is beautiful and that is why I went to him looking for advice on how I might build a hemp boa. While all I was looking for was advice, instead of throwing me a suggestion he sent me a picture of the boa that he had already started for me. I kind of freaked out, in a good way.

What does one do for somebody who is building a piece that will be in my closet forever and with me on many, many adventures? I build them hemp cookies. Or in this case, medicated hemp cookies.

I needed to put a little thought into the ingredients since he does have Crohn’s disease and has a very sensitive digestive system. He kind of needs to eat the same as me except that he is sensitive to fiber. I asked him if he could tolerate the vegetable glycerin tincture and he told me that it was fine if he limited his sugar intake that day. Good to know.

Raw Lemon Lavender Hemp Cannabis Cookies

1/2C raw cashews, finely chopped

1/2C raw almonds, finely chopped

1/3C hemp hearts

1 lemon, juiced and zested

2 T maca

3T raw honey

4T chia seeds, soaked in about 1/4C water

1-25ml bottle of Cannabis and Lavender glycerin tincture (I used the whole thing)

1) Soak the chia seeds until they have absorbed all of the water. Add more if needed to create a thick pudding like consistency.

2) Combine all of the ingredients and mix well. Chill in the fridge.

3) Place all cookie dough on a piece of parchment paper and  form into a roll. Slice into cookies and place into a food dehydrator for about 7 hours.

I like how these turned out. Not too sweet or too tart and just the right amount of lavender. The hardest part was waiting for them to be done and hoping that they will be Safety approved.

I appreciate kind, creative people so much and love how they how they can go through this world peacefully spreading imagination and goodness.

SafeTdriver, thank you for bringing more positivity to this world while you hemp your way through it.

And, like he always says, “Do something nice for somebody, that shit will come back to you.”

MMJ Peanut Butter Fudge

IMG_1811

This past week I attempted to create a medicated peanut butter fudge without using processed sugar. Using what ingeredients I had in my house I came up with a quick, simple, and healthy fudge version that not only is effective as medication but also packed with nutrients.

I used a CO2 extracted cannabis oil that I know had been tested for quality and impurities. I like cooking with CO2 oils because they are already activated and can easily be added to any dish, drink, or even taken right under the tongue.

MMJ Peanut Butter Fudge

1/2C cacao nibs

1/2C hemp hearts

1C coconut milk

1t vanilla

6 medjool dates

1/4 cup maca powder

1g CO2 cannabis concentrate (option for MMJ version)

3/4C peanut butter

1/4C coconut oil

1/3C chopped walnuts

1) Blend cacao nibs, hemp hearts, coconut milk, vanilla, maca powder, and dates until smooth.

2) Gently heat the peanut butter and coconut oil in a double boiler. Remove from heat and add the cannabis concentrate to the warm oils. Mix well.

3) Combine both mixtures then add walnuts.

4) Place in a 6″x9″ pan and chill in fridge for 15 minutes. Cut into pieces and place into freezer until firmly set.

These turned out to be a pleasant way to medicate. Not sugary but with a rich and fudgy texture and effective daytime mmj potency. Perfect with a cup of tea.

It takes serious diligence to take care of yourself when you cannot eat like everybody else. So, for everybody out there who has to make their own medibles to avoid processed ingredients, cheers to you.
