Raw Cannabis Flower and Hemp Pesto

IMG_1866

I enjoy the taste of raw cannabis. It has a bold, spicy flavor that pairs well with other foods and herbs to enhance and add nutritive value to a good meal. While, at this time, I generally only eat raw cannabis leaves, every once in a while I am lucky enough to gain access to fresh edible cannabis flowers.

If you are eating the raw buds, it is suggested they be at the state where the trichomes are fully present and appear cloudy, not yet amber. Raw buds have a high concentration of cannabinoids in their acid form (ie, THCA) and when eaten fresh, with no heat applied, provide you many health benefits without the psychoactive action of THC.

This little pesto paired as well with steak and cooked vegetables as it did with a fresh garden salad. Cannabis pesto on everything!
