Cannabis cookery

Although marijuana is generally consumed by inhalation (vaporization or burning) it is also possible to consume it in food, both for recreational and therapeutic use. The main advantages of taking it via ingestion are the protection of the respiratory system as opposed to burning it, and the duration of the effect, which will last considerably longer (several hours), significantly reducing the frequency of use. To cook marijuana, we must first extract their phytocannabinoids, which are the active ingredients of the plant. As they are not soluble in water, we use concentrated vegetable fats (olive oil, coconut butter, ...), animal (butter, cream, whole milk, ...), or food alcohol (eg Bacardie 151), for a cannabis tincture. We hope you enjoy cooking!

How to make a cannabis infusion

How to make a cannabis infusion

How to extract cannabinoids in a drink

Making a cannabis infusion is a simple and effective way to consume the plant, for recreational or therapeutic use. It can also be a good solution to recycle cannabis buds that don't have a good enough quality flavour to be consumed in the "conventional" way.

Cannabinoids such as THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol) or CBD (Cannabidiol) have the particularity of not being water-soluble. Therefore, the result of boiling water with cannabis will not be as effective as it is with other infusions such as tea, mint or chamomile.

How to make your own cannabis lubricant

How to make your own cannabis lubricant

Both science and decades of anecdotal evidence affirm that cannabis and sex complement each other and that cannabinoids stimulate our endocannabinoid system, which contributes to the regulation of sexual function. Weed's relaxing properties may promote disinhibition and the flow of emotions, while the hedonic experience of cannabis facilitates increased awareness and physical pleasure in contact with the other person. Some studies have also found a link between cannabis and increased sexual appetite, especially in women, who have linked its use to longer and better quality orgasms.

But if weed can improve sex, taking it to a new level, with lubricant products based on THC or CBD, sexual intercourse can be even more pleasurable because cannabis lubricant also provides relief for people who experience pain during sex. About a third of women suffer from it, and so far the options for dealing with it have been limited to anaesthetic creams, dilators and other questionable synthetic chemicals, which are less than ideal when applied to highly absorbent vaginal tissue. Cannabis lubricants work in the same way as conventional lubricants but with the notable difference of increased sensations thanks to cannabinoids.

Cannabis decarboxylation

Cannabis decarboxylation

Marijuana decarboxylation has been subjected to an increasing interest from the cannabis community in recent years, coinciding with the surge of edibles rich in cannabinoids and terpenes. It is, after all, the way to ensure the active principles that are present in these types of products will be in their "active" form; or in other words... they will have an effect, and therefore users will be able to benefit from their properties.

Fresh cannabis flowers are full of cannabinoids and terpenes in their acid form (THCA, CBDA, CBGA), which does not provide the effects that most consumers want. In order to get high, you’ll need to decarboxylate these molecules, removing the carboxyl group (COOH) to obtain the active forms best known by all of us: THC, CBD, CBG...

In this article, we take a look into this intriguing process and show you several ways to do it.

Cannabis risotto with saffron

Cannabis risotto with saffron

Risotto is a traditional Italian dish made with medium graine rice, which should be rich in starch. This recipe comes from the Verona area, since top quality rice is widely found there, as well as the other main ingredient of rissoto, cheese. In Italy, rissoto is defined as "minestra asciuta", which means dry soup and indicates that the resulting preparation must be neither dry nor too liquid, but with a creaminess that allows to use a fork.

Risotto, along with pasta and pizza, are probably the three flagship dishes of Italian cuisine. Despite the main ingredient of today's recipe is rice, we are going to use it as a vehicle to transport the rest of flavours that we want to incorporate to the dish. You can use a wide range of ingredients to complement your rice, the only thing to keep in mind is to achieve a correct balance between the different flavours. Thus, you can use vegetables, seafood, poultry meat, bush meat, guts, spices, wines, etc.
