Can’t smoke weed at work? Then these pot muffins are for you. I’m not being cute or facetious: While plenty of folks enjoy a spot or two of marijuana for funzies, there are many of us who use it for medical reasons (and also for funzies). Personally I use it for the crippling pain I occasionally experience after being hit by a car a few years back, which I feel is a strong enough excuse for flouting the Man. However, it is not acceptable for a 36-year-old mother of two to be on the devil’s weed: Everybody knows mothers should be on Xanax and red wine. Our kind needs to hide in plain sight. Who’s going to judge a sweet little zucchini muffin, sitting there on your desk seemingly minding its own business? Nobody. Now you can make it through the day without chronic pain, worrying about a migraine, or developing glaucoma.Quick disclaimer here: Remember to take it slow. Edibles don’t hit you right away, and you don’t want to eat more than your limit and 20 minutes later ending up hiding in the supply closet (though this recipe is super low dose to keep things from getting too crazy). Until you learn what works for you take bites and space them out, and you’ll have a barely perceptible high. And if anyone does get suspicious, just tell them you’re on Percocet. That is completely socially acceptable.Cannabutter Zucchini Muffins.
Benefits of the CBD
At first glance, the hemp fruits appear as a small walnut covered with a thin, shiny and hard layer. Rich in nutrients, they are brown or black and sometimes even grey-green in colour and their diameter varies, on average, from 3 to 4 mm. I hemp seeds contain between 28% and 35% fat, 30% to 35% carbohydrates and 20% to 24% protein, as well as high percentages of vitamin B (more than other foods of plant origin), vitamin E, calcium, magnesium, and iron. Hemp seeds are a truly “amazing” product: they contain all eight essential amino acids that the body cannot synthesize autonomously, and this makes them highly protein and recommended for a diet healthy and balanced.
This is not all: the vitamin content and the presence of mineral salts (calcium, magnesium, potassium) are also noteworthy. Moreover, hemp has a very high nutritional value, suitable both for those who follow a highly protein diet, such as athletes and sportsmen, and for those who would like to compensate for the lack of animal proteins for the choice of specific diets, such as vegans and cruelty. The presence of polyunsaturated fats also makes hemp an excellent ally against cardiovascular diseases (the ratio Omega 3 and Omega 6 is the perfect 5:1), arteriosclerosis, eczema, acne and diseases of the respiratory system.
Are marijuana edibles safe for pregnant or breastfeeding women?
Using marijuana while pregnant or breastfeeding may harm your baby. THC from the marijuana passes from the mother to her unborn child through the placenta. When a breastfeeding mother uses marijuana, THC passes through the breast milk to the baby and can potentially affect the baby.
Storage: Where should you store marijuana and marijuana edibles?
Always store marijuana edibles safely away from children and pets. Little bodies and developing brains cannot handle even small amounts of marijuana.
Products purchased from retail or medical marijuana retailers are required by Alaska law to use clearly labelled and child-safe packaging. Keep marijuana products in their original packaging so they are easily identified as containing THC. Keep them in a locked area.
How you store marijuana should change as children get older. Safe storage around young children may not stop older children or teens.
Who can legally eat or drink marijuana edibles?
In Alaska, non-medical marijuana use of all types is legal only for adults 21 years and older. That includes smoking, vaping, dabbing or consuming marijuana.
Be Careful When You Eat and Drink Marijuana
Marijuana edibles are foods and drinks that are made with marijuana or marijuana oils. These can be made at home, like pot brownies, but producers can make and sell marijuana edibles in many forms:
• gummy candies
• sodas and juices
• cookies and other treats
Let’s see what you’ll need:
- small saucepan or a frying pan
- measuring cup
- A whisk
- Muffin tray with cups
- ½ cup 100 percent vegetable oil
- 6 grams ground cannabis or three grams full melt hash (no straining necessary)
- ½ a cup water
- Cake Flour
Measure oil and pour into a frying pan that’s kept at room temperature. Add the medicinal canna to the oil and heat the mixture. Let it simmer for about 20 minutes using medium heat. As the oil and the canna boil together, the plant’s medicinal value is transferred to the oil.Heat is necessary to extract the THC’s.
After the stipulated time, remove the frying pan from the oven and let it cool. Once it has cooled, go ahead and strain the mix using a strainer. Once most of the medicinal oil is strained, tamp the plant waste with a spoon so that the medicinal oil is completely extracted. Once this is done, discard the plant waste (it no longer has any medicinal value) and keep the oil aside.
In a mixing bowl, add cake mix and slowly pour the strained oil into it. Add three eggs. Pour the mixture into a mixer and blend well. Run the mixer at a low speed to avoid the formation of air pockets. Add the blueberries and fold them in such a way that they don’t break. Continue adding blue berries till the colour of the mix changes slightly.
Once the blueberries are folded in well, scrape the bowl down and add the mixture to muffin cups. Using two spoons, transfer the mix to the cups, ensuring that they are only ¾ full. Keep the cups on a tray and transfer the tray to a pre-heated oven. Bake the muffins at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes. Halfway through the baking process, spin the tray through 180 degree so that all the muffins are warmed to the same temperature.
At the end of 20 minutes, take the tray out, cool the muffins and have a nice time eating them. Check out the video below for a step by step visual walkthrough of the previous steps.
