Fall is here and we have been on the hunt for fun ways we can begin using our new obsession, Cannabis Honey. We found a tasty treat you can easily dose and spread on to muffins, waffles, pancakes, toast, etc. We present to you, Whipped Pumpkin Honey Butter!
As the pages on the calendar turn and we move into fall, I’m reminded of waking up on chilly mornings smelling apples baking. My grandma could cook, ladies and gents, and this treat was like having dessert for breakfast. The only complicated thing about the recipe is coring an apple; how many of you have an actual apple corer in one of your kitchen drawers? I know I don’t. I use a thin paring knife with a 6″ blade, like you would use for filleting fish, and a metal spoon. Cut a cylinder around the core as best you can and dig the core out with the spoon – it’s a bit of work, but there’s really no way to screw it up. If you accidentally cut all the way through and leave a hole, don’t worry about it. Just use a small baking dish that lets the liquid ingredients cover the bottom of the apple, and it will absorb all the tasty goodness.
Shanah tovah! Cannaceutics would like to celebrate bringing in our organic Cannahoney with a (non-traditional) honey cake recipe! Traditional honey cakes tend to be less sweet and a little drier than, say, a light, fluffy-textured birthday cake. I love a piece of a less-sweet-than-usual cake with a cup of coffee, but that’s for, like, an ordinary Wednesday afternoon, not a celebration. I went a little different way and chose a Greek honey cheesecake. The fat from the ricotta cheese will enhance the effects of your medicine!
I had always been afraid of cheesecake recipes, having heard how hard it was to get them to come out right. Honestly, this recipe seemed like a breeze – and I haven’t baked anything in many, many years! The only real issue I found is during baking, when a cheesecake can crack on top. It’s only an aesthetic thing, and you’ll be topping yours with sugar and spices, so put away any worry about a crack, and if you get one, hide it with something tasty!
I went with 8 servings out of a 9″ pie pan, getting about 17mgs of THC per piece. The entire cake will have 136mgs of THC, so just divide 136 by the number of pieces you decide to cut to get the milligrams per piece.
Cannaceutics is celebrating! We recently added medicated coconut oil to our menu, so let’s all have a treat! I’ve adapted this recipe to use both coconut oil and butter; the flavor seems to be better when both are used – all butter will be a more familiar flavor for most people, and coconut oil lends a nuttier flavor to the finished treats. The addition of sprinkles at the end is not optional! Sprinkles for all!
We’re headed into hot weather again, and as much as I’d like to post a recipe for something dinner-like, I just can’t muster the energy. Ugh, hand me a mojito with some Thai basil and let’s have mango & sticky rice!
You’ll notice pretty quickly that this is not a cannabis-medicated recipe. Why, oh, why would I do this to you? Well, we’ve been talking about terpenes for a few weeks here at Cannaceutics, and that’s where the mango comes in! You may have had a kind friend tell you that eating a mango in conjunction with your cannabis consumption will intensify the effects of your medicine. When it comes to getting higher by using mangoes, we’re really talking about the effects from myrcene, a terpene found in both mangoes and cannabis. Mangoes are particularly high in myrcene, so it’s not mangoes as a whole that get you higher, but rather just the myrcene they contain interacting synergistically with the THC and CBD in your cannabis. It’s like adding kief topper to your bowl of flower to make the effect stronger, but you get a bonus serving of fruit! Coconut milk also has a decent amount of fat, which helps your body absorb THC more readily.
Medicate in whatever way works best for you, and then tuck into this delicious Thai treat!
