    Cannabis Infused Shrimp and Grits – The Weed Blog

    This is one of my favorite comfort foods! I honestly believe I could eat this everyday. This dish was something our family would have often. My Granddad Benny would take me crabbing in the early morning hours and sometimes shrimp would get caught in the nets. I would let them go until Benny would fuss about me throwing food back, ha! I mean, we were going crabbing, not shrimping! But, when he cooked up that first dish of shrimp and grits…OMG. I don’t know if I finished eating it, or fell asleep in my bowl. 

    After that, shrimp and grits was one of those comfort foods we always had growing up. I remember eating it wherever I didn’t feel well. When I was around 7 or 8 years old and got measles and mumps and  I remember this dish being one of the only things I could hold down. My mom would cut the shrimp up small for me to eat. It’s so good, right up there with collard greens and cornbread. 

    But, my first time cooking shrimp and grits with cannabis was about twelve years ago. My sister and I were discussing the family recipes from our Granddad Benny, and we couldn’t figure out why some recipes just didn’t taste right. After asking my mom, we figured out that we didn’t have the “special” ingredient that enhanced the flavors.  Cannabis can do so much for your food, for both taste and wellness!

    B-Real Discusses ‘Bong Appétit: Cook Off,’ The National TV Cannabis Cooking Show He Hosts – Benzinga

    As the mainstreaming of cannabis continues, VICELAND’s cannabis-themed cooking show Bong Appétit,” the most prominent (or maybe the only) marijuana cooking show on national and international television, is upping its bets by incorporating B-Real of Cypress Hill as its season three host and judge, while also rebooting the product as a cook-off – or cooking competition.

    The famed rapper, actor, and cannabis entrepreneur will join Vanessa Lavorato, founder of Marigold Sweets, and the very-well-known chef and restaurateur Miguel Trinidad, as they embark in a quest to find the ultimate cannabis chefs in North America.

    Debuting on April 2nd, the series will follow contestants as they compete in a series of pot-infused cooking challenges of diverse natures. Each episode will feature a different theme and three unique cooks seeking to be crowned the week’s winner. A little spoiler: even though most of the contestants have little to no experience cooking with weed, the results are impressive.

    In addition to the cooks and judges, “Bong Appétit: Cook Off” will feature a fun roster of special guests, including Wiz Khalifa, Lykke Li, George Clinton of Parliament-Funkadelic, and rappers DRAM, Jarobi White, and N.O.R.E, as well as comedians Cheech & Chong and Doug Benson, The Sopranos actor Joe Gannascoli, and Top Chef winner Michael Voltaggio.

    Interested in learning more about this awesome show that’s helping bring cannabis to the front and center of global culture, while proving pot can be as sophisticated as consumers want it to be, I sat down to watch the first couple episodes ahead of their release, and followed up with B-Real and Vanessa Lavorato, to further discuss the topic.

    The Intersection Of Entertainment And Education

    This is an educational show that helps bring cannabis closer to the mainstream, B-Real started by explaining. “Of course it’s entertainment too, because this is a cooking competition show and people are fairly entertained by competition-style shows – as evidenced by the huge cooking competition shows on TV right now.

    “But this show is also educational in several ways. One aspect of it is competitors have to put meals together. So, for people trying to learn how to cook to any degree, this is an educational show,” B-Real told me. “The other big educational aspect of ‘Bong Appétit:Cook Off,’ and the most important for us, is it teaches people how to infuse their meals properly, with the right dosage. So, while people are being entertained by the competitive aspect of the show, they are also learning what they could pair cannabis infusion with, and the diverse ways they can ingest cannabis, like having it infused in a meal.”

    It’s important for viewers to understand there are other ways to consume cannabis beyond smoking joints, hitting a bong or a pipe, or even vaping, B-Real repeated. Infused meals are a good way for many people to consume cannabis because they allow them to better control the dosing in their intake, “ultimately helping them realize the possibilities that cannabis offers – and I think that’s great,” he added.

    Vanessa seemed to agree with this point.

    Beyond entertainment, this show seeks to highlight the medical properties of cannabis and demonstrate the countless ways to consume it without smoking, or even feel like one is taking medication, she confirmed.

    You might think this is not as important a topic but, for some people undergoing serious ailments, medicating without feeling like they are can have a big psychological effect: imagine if you could eat delicious food and feel better afterwards, instead of taking a handful of pills that remind you how sick you are.

    Cannabis-infused meals provide patients with an enjoyable option to medicate, B-Real concurred. “Some people can’t take smoking, or the thought of it even,” he said, acknowledging that, while many conceive cannabis as a plant rather than as a drug, many others might still connect smoking weed with doing drugs.

    All About Dosing

    Throughout our conversation, B-Real went into proper dosing over and over again. For him, it’s important people don’t overdose (meaning they don’t take too much cannabis) when medicating. And that is not always easy, especially with some of the old-school intake methods.

    “With the chefs on the show, we wanted to show people the proper dosages that should go in your everyday meals, and the usage of CBD, and not just THC… There’s a lot of benefits there in terms of the usage of both CBD and THC, both together and separated… So the show provides people with a lot of insight into medicating with cannabis, but it makes it fun as well… We don’t want to force information on people; we want them to have fun while learning. ”

    Vanessa, of course, also brought up the importance of proper dosing a myriad of times throughout our long conversation. “We wanted these meals to be something people can get excited about, something they want to eat. It’s not something that they have to just scarf down, then drink a big glass of water and hope it’s not going to get them too high,” she said, emphasizing both the dosing aspect of it, as well as the flavor and presentation side of a good cannabis-infused meal.

    Breaking The Stigma Can Take Many Forms

    When not touching on the medical benefits of cannabis, “Bong Appétit:Cook Off” still evidences how marijuana, just like food, can help people bond and create meaningful relationships, Lavorato told me.

    While this is a cannabis-themed show, the emphasis is still put on the food and cooks’ “ingenuity in using cannabis in their cuisine,” she explained.

    One of the things that stuck with me was Lavorato’s point about how there are as many ways to end the stigma around cannabis, as there are ways to consume it.

    To illustrate, she brought up musician Lykke Li, one of the show’s special guests. “She’s a responsible mom, but she’s still sitting there and smoking with us… It’s a big deal to come out on camera consuming cannabis. It shouldn’t be, but it is,” she said. “Not everybody is equally open-minded. So having big celebrities come on the show and consume cannabis helps get the mainstream closer.

    “ Hopefully the show, like many of its guests and participants, helps change the conversation about cannabis, so that grandmas in the Midwest could see cannabis differently .”

    By means of conclusion, B-Real voiced: “This show can reach different circles of people who aren’t normally in the ‘stoner culture’ but re willing to try these types of infused meals. It can be a setting for anyone… While there are very different forms of cannabis users in the cannabis community, this show also allows for people outside the cannabis community to understand that this [consuming cannabis-infused meals] is a great option if you’re wanting to try cannabis casually or if you have a medical ailment you want to treat without smoking.”

    Tune into ‘Bong Appétit: Cook Off” every Tuesday at 9:00 PM ET/PT on Viceland.

    Ask a Chef: Is decarboxylation always necessary? — Greenway Magazine – Greenway

    Is decarboxylation always necessary? Yes, absolutely! If you are baking your edibles using either flower or concentrate you have infused into oil or butter, for example, you will certainly feel some effects from the THC that IS activated during the baking process. If you decarboxylate your product, either flower or concentrates, before the infusion process, your edibles end up being far more potent. Since you did pay for the product, whether directly through a dispensary or growing it and making it yourself and paying for the electricity and water in which to do so, it is a good practice to get as much bang for your buck as you can. The process of decarboxylation is a chemical reaction that removes a carbon group in a molecule and releases carbon dioxide. This turns THC-a into THC and CBD-a into CBD while releasing a host of other cannabinoids that work together to increase a product’s psychoactive effects. While THC-a does have some anti-inflammatory properties there are no Psychoactive effects.

    Basically it won’t get you high. This is why you cannot get high from merely eating raw cannabis. You have to add a source of heat to make a chemical reaction happen. If you are not smoking it and directly adding fire or heat, then different measures should be taken, especially if you are making no-bake cookies, goo balls, or fat bombs… things that do not require baking at all.

    While there are many different ways you can accomplish this process, most have various pros and cons. For example, using a crockpot with a water bath has the idea that the water will boil and stay at a consistent 212 degrees Fahrenheit, but because it doesn’t get hotter than that, you are missing out on some of the chemical reactions that still could occur. Some people set their ovens at 200 or 250 degrees Fahrenheit and put the buds on a sheet pan in a foil tent or a glass mason jar for an hour. The problem here is uneven chemical reactions since most ovens can vary in temperature by up to 10 degrees from one side to the other. Some of your flower can be burning while other buds are only partially potent. Decarboxylation is a delicate science because once you bring the THC to its maximum potency, the product will start to lose potency if the heating continues. While these options will certainly work, finding the most precise way you are able to do this is highly recommended.

    There are many products on the market that would suit a variety of needs that help combat some of the common issues with trying to decarboxylate correctly. They are called decarb units and are designed specifically to heat the product to the exact proper temperature for maximum potency and keep it there for the correct amount of time. Since it keeps it at the lowest temperature possible the terpene profile is not compromised or changed. This is a nice bonus for people who love to cook with a specific strain that may complement certain recipes and flavor profiles, especially if you are a person who is cooking with cannabis or concentrates regularly. Some brands can get a little pricy, but are well worth your investment since it maximizes potency, you can use less product to accomplish the same effect therefore it is saving you money. And who doesn’t like saving money and getting high at the same time?

       

    Happy baking!

    Weed Edibles Are Selling Well During the Pandemic – The New York Times

    Ben Emerson had never tried cannabis edibles before his birthday in April. He was raised in the Evangelical Presbyterian Church, which he left five years ago, and marijuana was “this thing that I had never really even thought that I was allowed to do,” he said.

    “And then I’m like, ‘Wait, I can actually make up my own mind about this.’”

    For his first foray, Mr. Emerson, 38, chose strawberry-flavored gummies, which he ordered online and picked up curbside at a dispensary near his home in Portland, Ore. “I’m not super-interested in smoking anything,” he said. “But as soon as I decided I wanted to try cannabis, I wanted to try something edible.”

    Anxious times (say, a global pandemic) call for palliatives, like meditation, exercise or, in some cases, weed. More than a dozen states declared cannabis stores and medical marijuana dispensaries essential businesses, along with pharmacies and grocery stores, as the coronavirus sent millions of Americans home, with or without jobs.

    Since March, the cannabis industry has seen an influx of new customers: Eaze, an online cannabis retailer, told The Associated Press that first-time purchases of cannabis were up more than 50 percent in early March. And as fear of inhaled products has risen — spurred partly by studies of “vaping illness” and exacerbated by respiratory risks associated with the coronavirus — many consumers have opted to enjoy cannabis in edible form.

    When the Apothecarium, an upscale dispensary with locations in California and Nevada, moved from in-store retail to curbside pickup in March, Cali Manzello, the general manager of its San Francisco flagship, noticed a change in the size of orders.

    “One of the first orders that printed out from the pickup machine said 25 packages of this gummy on it,” she said. “And we all kind of giggled. We were like, ‘Ooh boy, here it goes. It’s starting.’”

    “It did not stop,” Ms. Manzello continued. “People were ordering, you know, up to the legal limit, which can be up to 80 edibles in some cases.” Ms. Manzello said that the company’s edible sales are up 16 percent, while vape sales have fallen by 19 percent.

    “Edibles every year have been taking up a bigger slice of the pie,” said Alex Levine, an owner and joint C.E.O. of Green Dragon, a dispensary that operates 15 locations in Colorado. “Right before corona hit, edibles were basically at 20 percent of our sales. That was a huge increase over the past couple of years.”

    Vince Ning, the founder and C.E.O. of Nabis, a wholesale cannabis distributor in California, said that, as a possible result of “health-conscious” consumerism, his company has also seen an increase in sales of edibles.

    “I think cannabis in general is a pretty recession-proof good,” Mr. Ning said. “Much like alcohol,” whose sales also skyrocketed as people prepared to be holed up at home indefinitely.

    Chris Beals, the C.E.O. of Weedmaps, an online directory for dispensaries, said that according to company data, overall sales of edibles in March were double those in February. He said it could be a result of increased cannabis consumption among habitual users but also “new consumers coming in, who were working from home, dealing with the stresses of Covid.”

    In the close quarters of quarantine, being stuck with roommates or family for an extended period of time, consumers may not want to smoke or vape. “When people are working at home or they’re around children or family, edibles are just more discreet,” Mr. Beals said.

    Lauren Gockley, a classically trained chocolatier, is the director of edibles at Coda Signature, whose product line includes truffles and “fruit notes” (fancy weed gummies). She said consumers may be turning to edibles during the pandemic for other social reasons, including community.

    “With the pandemic, there’s not that same sharing of cannabis the way there used to be,” she said. “There’s the phrase ‘puff, puff, pass,’ and now it’s ‘puff, puff, don’t pass.’”

    “Passing around a tin of gummies is going to be much more acceptable than passing around a joint or a vape pen,” she added.

    In April, Mr. Levine said that Green Dragon saw sales of edibles dip. He chalked that up to customers buying flowers, the smokable part of the plant (commonly called “bud”), which they could use to make their own edibles.

    “People didn’t know how long this was going to last. ‘Is cannabis going to be unavailable for months?’ So people bought flowers,” Mr. Levine said. “Flower is always the best value. It’s like buying the raw ingredients, if you will. It’s always cheaper to buy the flour and stuff to make cookies than buying the prepared cookies.”

    Tee Franklin, a comic book writer and novelist in New Jersey, makes edibles at home and often uses cannabis oil in her cooking. “Oh, baby, I make everything,” she said. “Every single thing you can think of, I have made within reason.”

    That includes “an entire soul food dinner,” which she cooked for herself and her 80-year-old mother: ribs with homemade cannabis-infused barbecue sauce, mac and cheese made with cannabis butter, and baked beans and collard greens cooked with cannabis sugar.

    Ms. Franklin, who is in her mid-40s, received a medical marijuana card (another item in high demand these days) in December, after seven years of living with a disability caused by a car accident. It took her a month to save up enough money to make a purchase. When she first tried it, she said, “My pain in five minutes went from a 9, 10 to a 6, 7. Those five minutes changed my entire life.”

    Ms. Franklin still uses a walker, but she said she can move better and stand for longer because of the relief cannabis provides her. “I’m not as slow,” she said. “I’m not the Flash, but I got a little pep in my step, and that’s all from marijuana.”

    “It helps with depression, anxiety, stress,” she said. “There is no way on God’s green Earth that I would be able to deal with the coronavirus and the protests of George Floyd and just me being a Black woman, period, there’s no way.”

    Ms. Franklin said edibles are the most accessible form of marijuana for many people, but not for everyone.

    Money can be a major barrier, especially since some 20 million Americans are out of work because of the pandemic. Mr. Levine noted that at one of the Green Dragon storefronts where he was recently working, “half of the people coming in had no income. I’m sure it was even worse than that.”

    The price of edibles can vary based on the state — and the amount of THC — but with a package of 10 gummies with 100 milligrams per bag of THC selling for $20 in Colorado and $18 in California, the cost can be prohibitive for some people.

    Mr. Emerson, in Portland, acknowledged that his own ability to afford and have access to legal cannabis, for recreation, was a privilege. “That’s not something that a lot of people have been able to do,” he said. “A lot of damage has been done particularly to Black communities, the communities of color, because of something like cannabis, which is pretty harmless.”

    Ms. Franklin echoed his words, noting the disproportionate incarceration rates of Black people for marijuana possession.

    “Dispensaries are an essential business,” she said. “It’s a drug-dealing business that is owned majority by white. But the Black people who were doing the same thing are locked up. The brown folks, same thing, they’re locked up.”

    “That’s the only thing about this whole weed business that I am not of fan of,” she continued. “That’s the only thing. Everything else, I am for it. I’m for it.”

    Cannabis Infused Peaches and Biscuit Recipe – The Weed Blog

    Cannabis and cooking have always gone together for me and my family, and I hope that sharing this cannabis infused recipe of a classic dish I grew up making will be as enjoyable for you as it is for me!

    Growing up Black in the South was difficult for many, including myself. But, I found peace and love in my family’s kitchen which led me to become a cannabis chef. We ate from the land…we ate whatever we grew ourselves and traded for within our community for the things we needed. This little all Black community, here in Eatonville, Florida, was so rich with neighborly love.  It was truly a village that raised this child. 

    Cannabis Cooking and Black Culture in the South

    Now if you know anything about Black culture and our cooking style it can range as wide as the East and West coast but one thing holds true: measurements are done by taste and a lot of love. I only remember seeing a measuring cup once, and that was to hold bacon grease. 

    You’re probably wondering…what does Southern cooking have to do with cannabis? Well shug, I’ll tell ya…I’ve been using it for as long as I can remember! It was that little spice jar with no name or label on it, just a green sticker in my grandfather Benny’s cooking cabinet. Benny always did most of the cooking for the family, while my grandmother, Rosa Lee, gardened. 

    I can honestly say that, even in spite of the War on Drugs in the 70s and 80s, we continued to consume this happy little plant daily in our foods. So how did we measure it, infuse it, and eat it with our food? Benny would just put a pinch in every dish according to how many people were eating. I would recommend that you measure for your body and health.  It is always best to start low and go slow until you find that perfect dosage level for you. This can be simple if you create a container of an infused substance such as olive oil.

    So now let’s talk about how measuring goes, with my recipes after hours of chatting with my Mommy. I would say these are as close as they come but remember to cook with love and taste as you go. 

    Drizzle- 1 tablespoon

    Tad- ¼ teaspoon 

    Dash- 1/8 teaspoon 

    Pinch- 1/16 teaspoon 

    Smudgen- 1/32 teaspoon 

    Drop (liquid)- 1/16 teaspoon 

    Handful- ½ cup

    Fistful- ¼ cup

    Mouthful- tablespoon 

    Jug- pint

    Coffee cup (liquid)- 8 oz

    Recipe: Cannabis Infused Sweet Peaches and Biscuits 

    (5 min prep and 30 minute cook time serve up to four)

    Ingredients:

    2 whole peaches

    Handful of Brown sugar

    2 tablespoons of Butter

    Can of your favorite Biscuits 

    2 drops of Vanilla extract

    Dash of cinnamon 

    A fistful of Pecans

    Pinch of cannabis (ground)

    Directions:

    Put the biscuit in the oven according to product directions. 

    Cut and dice peaches, remember to remove the seed. 

    In a saucepan, or your favorite cast iron skillet, add butter, brown sugar, vanilla, cannabis and cinnamon. 

    Simmer until liquid then add your diced peaches. 

    Cook until nicely coated for about 10 minutes. 

    Chop pecan

    Remove warm biscuit, open, place on dish and pour peaches on top and add pecans. 

    Serve warm and enjoy!

    Experts Tell Us Why An Indian Family Fell Sick After Cooking Weed as A Vegetable – VICE

    We all have that one friend who shows up to the movies after chomping down a batch of marijuana brownies. You, and everyone else at the theatre, remembers them distinctly, mostly because they’re the ones who kept screaming at the screen, convinced the bullets from the live action sequence were headed straight for them.

    Cannabis has been consumed orally for centuries, even as far back as 1000 BC (the OG one, not ‘before corona’). But a bizarre case that cropped up in India has sparked a confusing conversation on whether eating cannabis can land you straight in the hospital.

    A family of six in the Miyaganj village of the north Indian state of Uttar Pradesh ended up in the hospital on June 27. Reports say the family fell sick after cooking cannabis leaves they mistakenly assumed to be methi (fenugreek), an ingredient often used in Indian cuisines.

    According to local news sources, a vegetable seller named Naval Kishore sold weed to a family member named Nitesh claiming it was fenugreek as a prank. Nitesh then brought the packet home, where it was cooked along with potatoes to make an Indian dish known as aloo-methi.

    While reports don’t mention how long it took for the high to kick in, the family apparently began to experience dizziness, and asked their neighbour to call a doctor. Some of them even allegedly lost consciousness. The hospital is yet to give an update on their recovery, but the police caught Kishore, who admitted to the prank.

    But the incident has left people wondering: Can cooking or eating cannabis really make you lose consciousness? Can bhang or brownies have the same effects? And how much of this extreme reaction can be attributed to the overpowering masalas (spices) that Indian food generally requires?

    “There are three things that matter when it comes to taking drugs: it’s onset time, or the time it takes to start the process, how potent it is, and the duration it lasts for,” Dr Prashant Punia, a Pune-based neurosurgeon, told VICE. Punia points out that the active component in cannabis known as tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) takes longer to break down when ingested orally through edibles, and is broken down by the liver to convert to 11-hydroxy THC, a more potent psychoactive molecule.

    “The intent and lack of mental preparation are also important factors that led to such a reaction,” he says of the case above. Since the family was eating the cannabis as a meal to suppress their hunger, and not to get high, the amount ingested went beyond their bodies’ limits.

    “They probably didn’t eat enough for the THC content to be lethal, but since they had never tried it before, it may have triggered an overwhelming reaction in the brain’s neural pathways. People who accidentally consume cannabis tend to react differently. In this case, the fear of doom and unnatural feeling of the high may have caused their heart rate to go up, leading to paranoia or anxiety.” Punia says they may have lost consciousness in this tense situation so that their brain could avoid going through the overwhelming anxiety and fear the high may have triggered.

    “I think this was a case of over-consuming cannabis,” agrees Viki Vaurora, the founder of the Great Legalisation Movement, a Bengaluru-based collective working to raise awareness about the medical and therapeutic potential of cannabis. Having worked with thousands of patients using cannabis extract oil to relieve their pain and symptoms, Vaurora says that he has previously observed cases of patients freaking out after ingesting more than the prescribed dose.

    “While we don’t know all the details about the patients’ illness and recovery, from the reports we can assume that they were given really strong cannabis flowers of the indica strain of the cannabis plant, which is meant to make you feel relaxed,” he says, adding that if it was the cannabis plant’s sativa strain, their heart rate would’ve increased, and they would’ve felt energetic and anxious, instead of passing out.

    Vaurora also adds that this reaction probably wasn’t prompted by the weed being adulterated with rat poison or shoe polish, as it often is in India, since that would lead to nausea and vomiting, and not a loss of consciousness.

    So does this mean cooking cannabis has the potential to push you over the edge? Not exactly.

    Research suggests that cannabis should be cooked in a fat soluble substance like butter or oil, because it is not a water-soluble substance. It should ideally also always be decarboxylated, which is the process of activating the psychoactive THC by heating the cannabis leaves or flowers before infusing them.

    While most people make edibles for the trip they tend to induce, the cannabis plant is also considered highly nutritious.

    “The most nutrient-dense part of the cannabis is its seeds containing calcium, fiber, fatty acids and 16gm of protein in 50 grams of serving,” says Mamta Dagar, a nutritionist from Delhi. According to Dagar, cannabis is not only beneficial in completing the protein needs of our body, but also helps in anti-ageing as it contains anti-oxidants like polyphenols, phosphorous and magnesium.

    The biggest problem with scarfing down edibles, though, is that it’s difficult to determine the THC content and use an appropriate dosage if you’re going for, say, homemade hash brownies.

    Concentrations of THC vary widely depending on different factors, such as where the product was grown and its quality. The effects of edibles can last for many hours, based on how much was ingested, as well as other factors like body weight, metabolism, and gender.

    So, overeating any cannabis product can result in symptoms like paranoid delusions, extreme sedation, hallucinations, and confusion. But thankfully, an edibles overdose rarely ever leads to more tragic consequences, with symptoms usually resolving themselves without lasting damage.

    But when the stakes do get high, some cannabis connoisseurs recommend eating pistachios, which contain a chemical called alpha-pinene that boosts mental stability, or citrus fruits like lemons or oranges which contain a terpene called limonene with the ability to reduce anxiety while high as a kite. Or you can retreat to a safe space, have a friend hold your hand, and just wait it out.
