Netflix and Chill: CannaLovers Popcorn

Trick Or Treat! There’s a little chill in the air and with fall upon us and winter coming it’s officially cuffing season. As it gets colder we tend to stay indoors nice and warm watching some horror movies and cuddling. Or at least that’s what I like to do. In fact I’m probably having a Friday the 13th marathon next Friday and if we’re on the same page here then do I have a treat for you! The easiest edible ever, that I actually created last night, and fits in perfect with binge watching and couch-gating!

I Got My Dogs High and They Liked It

Yes you read that right! I got my dogs high and they liked it! Turns out humans are not the only mammals with cannabinoid receptors, in fact most mammals do and you can definitely get your dogs high. However safety is of utmost importance.


The amount of cannabis given to your doggie is very important. There have actually been reports of dogs dying :

They have to ingest a pretty large amount of weed to actually die, Downing said, but it doesn’t necessarily take a lot to have an adverse effect.

But in the same breath, Cannabis can be especially helpful for older dogs suffering from hip dysplasia and glaucoma, common issues with a majority of older pets. It also helps to alleviate pain, stimulate appetite, and lead to a better quality of life. Cannabis-infused tincture is one of the best forms to cannabis to give to your pet.

I fact ,

The late Dr. Doug Kramer, known as the “Vet Guru” risked his career by promoting medical marijuana for dogs. He developed a homemade tincture for his very own dog that suffered from cancer. He realized the benefits she had from using marijuana which made her last few months much more comfortable. He started Enlightened Veterinary Therapeutics, the country’s first vet to offer medical marijuana for dogs and other pets.

Another great and safe option (also what I did) are these homemade cannabis infused dog treats! I made them for my dogs:

The the effects looked like this:

Followed by some napping,  silly dog smiles and munchies, they were so licking their chops for more! Plus, the pumpkin helps to alleviate any stomach issues, and promotes healthy digestions. Plus, it’s a great way to use any leftover jack-o-lanterns from Halloween!

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup cooked/canned pumpkin
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 Tablespoons powdered milk
  • 3 cups flour
  • 1 Tablespoon bacon grease (melted)
  • 3 Tablespoons cannabis butter (melted)
  •  

Instructions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees
  2. Mix your pumpkin, egg, and salt together.
  3. Slowly add a cup of flour at a time (until the consistency is more doughy, and less sticky)
  4. Roll the dough out to 1/2 inch thickness, and cut into shapes
  5. Bake for 20 minutes on one side, then turn over and bake another 20 minutes.
  6. Let the treat cool-down for 10 minutes before basting with melted bacon grease & cannabis butter.

Let’s even have our dogs lit! And Definitely check out The Weed Scene for some awesome recipes like this Dank Cheesecake:

Cannabutter: Yum

Recently my grandmother asked me for some Mary Jane but she didn’t want to smoke it so I had to find a way for her to have the full effect without having to smoke and so of course that means it was time to make edibles! It took some investigating but quickly it was clear that all one has to do to make edibles is make cannabutter. Once you have the cannabutter anything that you need butter for can be made into an edible. And I do mean anything; lasagna, mac and cheese, lollipops, pancakes, cookies, whatever.  There are other options too such as coconut oil but I took the butter route and this is how I did it:

Initially I followed this instructional video:

But just the cannabutter part and I did do it a little differently.


Things you need:

  • 1/2 oz of weed, buds or trim or both, also important to note here is the better the strain, the better the butter.
  • 2 sticks of unsalted butter

  • A pot and a glass bowl that fits in the pot with a lid
  • cheese cloth
  • strainer

This is how I did it:

  1. Before anything and not mentioned in the video you need to decarboxylate the bud by grinding it, putting it on a parchment paper and then in the oven at 220 degrees for 30 minutes to pull out the terpenes.
  2. Next the video says to wrap your weed in a cheese cloth, I’m sure you can but I didn’t. I just put water in a pot on the stove and start heating it on a low flame.
  3. Once my water was boiling I put a glass bowl in the pot with the water still heating under it and I chopped up my 2 sticks of butter and put it in the glass bowl.
  4. Once my butter melted I added one cup of water and my ground decarboxlated weed to the melted butter and put the lid on.
  5. Then I camped out in my kitchen for 2 hours stirring the weed with the butter every now and then, always checking there was water in the pot beneath the glass bowl (and refilling the water).
  6. 2 hours past and I put a cheese cloth on my strainer, then strained my melted bud filled butter into another bowl. I strained it very good, repeatedly and then put that bowl in the frig and went to sleep.
  7. The next day I pulled my solid cannabutter out of the bowl in the frig and used it to make my grandma cookies.

For it being the first time I’ve ever done this, I did very good. I did use real kush bud, not trim and maybe that’s why my cookies were so strong. To say the least everyone, especially grandma felt the nice mellow stoned body high for hours! The next few days after I used what I had left over of my cannabutter to make eggs and pancakes and now I’m planning to figure out how to make coconut oil to make some chocolate covered something or at least some more butter to make a lasagna. For being a weed smoker, I’ve got to say it took a while to kick in but I loved the body high and how long it last. For me it starts with a tingling in my lips… and I feel literally “stoned” for hours. I think the cookie monster has been eating these for years because I can’t get the idea of “Cookiessss” (In the cookie monster voice) out of my mind. Definitely edibles are so worth the time it takes to make the cannabutter.  I highly recommend trying it out! Stay lit!
