Ask California Mist the Cannabis Kitchen Creator Anything about Marijuana: Brownies

How much Marijuana do I use in a batch of Brownies?

Today’s Marijuana Cooking Question is: (DRUM ROLL PLEASE….) from Money Hill. This week Money Hill asks the following Medical Marijuana Brownie Recipe Question…

HELLO!
I WAS WONDERING IF YOU COULD TELL ME APPROX HOW MUCH WEED TO USE IN COCONUT OIL FOR A DOZEN BROWNIES OR COOKIES THAT CALL FOR 1/4 CUP COCONUT OIL?? ITS VERY STRONG WEED! :)
THANKKKKKK YOU!!!!
No problem Mony, let me help you with this question!!!
There are many people out there who offer many different types of answers for this question. For you I will suggest you first use the process of decarboxylization on your weed and then move forward with the following process. Your decarboxylized pot will be offer a stronger high than a marijuana that hasn’t gone through this process.
It really depends how many brownies you want. If you are making large brownies I would do .03 gram per person; which would be 12 brownies approx in a pan, 1/8th of MJ. An 1/8th should do it but you can use 1/4 for really strong bud. Take out the big stems for the highest potency blend aggressively. Pour all weed including plant material in brownies; then pour oil or water required for brownies into blender and turn on high until the trichombs are released with the plant matter from the sides of the blender. Use this oil as recommended by your recipe. The brownies you make will need to have at least 1/2 cup of oil or butter to bond properly to the plant material to be safe!
Medical patients and in legal states/countries only.
Pot Babe California Mist
Start with 1/4 of a brownie to determine dose and wait for an hour to an hour and a half to determine potency.

Bhang bar is back; and it’s in Arizona!

Check it out, for all of you who have either moved from Cali or are craving yourself a Bhang bar but you figured you were out of luck when it comes to getting some top notch delicious medicated marijuana chocolate, don’t fret! The Bhang bar has arrived.

Marijuana chocolate bar, the best, a medical patient review

Sporting 200 mg of THC these bars are no joke. They are some of the strongest medicated edibles out there. I tried to get the recipe from these guys while at a convention in LA and they weren’t letting it go!

The donation was around $30 here in Arizona, I could get them for $15 in California when I was a medical patient there if I was lucky but normally for around $20. This goes along side Arizona’s medical prices which are far too high for terminal patients to get the 1/4-1/2 oz a day that they need just to control symptoms or more in the case of the Cancer Curing Oil mentioned in Run from the Cure, Rick Simpson Story.

If you are in Phoenix and interested in donating for one, I found my Bhang Bar at Urban Greenhouse. Everyone in there is so ridiculously nice it’s amazing! The bud tenders and staff at the Urban Greenhouse truly care. Just for fun, here is my favorite medical marijuana dispensary for Sativa strains in Phoenix (I’m giving my secrets away!) but they don’t offer pot brownies, no edibles yet anyways.

Do I look high? Or is it the pot leaves on my shirt? 

Bhang bars are banging’ for more reason than one. First off they are delicious. That is a given, they are better than Gheridelli and you can put them up there with Vosges Chocoletiere. The fire bar is just right, this amazing heat that climbs up on you and this beautiful high quality melting medicated chocolate. The best thing about Bhangs medical marijuana recipes are that they DO NOT taste medicated in any way. The worst thing about biting into that brownie, chocolate or cupcake, whatever is having that overwhelming chlyorphyll taste and who knows what else. These marijuana chefs at Bhang know exactly what they are doing.

High Times Marijuana Review of Bhang Chocolate

The bars are easily dosed by scoring one of four pieces but if you haven’t eaten edibles before how much of a Bhang bar should you take? What if you are a light to medium user? I would start out with 1/8th a square for an edibles virgin. If you want more, take more after waiting 45 minutes to an hour on an empty stomach. I would say 1/4 of a section for someone who is only an occasional smoker / token / or muncher.

Heavy smoker, toker or muncher? You are going to need 1/4 to 1/2 of a section. I can eat a whole one, but only when my symptoms are flaring up and I need to cure my nausea or severe migraine pain. It’s medical marijuana so it’s up to you to get the correct dosing down for you and learn with your doctor what works and what doesn’t.

I find I am still functional after using these meds as long as I don’t over do it. The bhang bar is one gourmet cannabis concoction you have got to try.

Overall, I’m going to give these a 5/5 in California (Price Point!) and a 4/5 in Arizona.

Cannabis affects the body and mind. Cannabinoids (natural compounds produced by the human body, cannabis, and various spice plants) aid in reducing the pain and suffering associated with more than 100 stubborn diseases and symptoms. This book builds upon the premise that subtle shifts in awareness (commonly observed in cannabis-using patients) vastly contribute to these compounds therapeutic potential. By bringing mindfulness-based therapy programs into the healing process, these shifts can be enhanced and amplified, and thus support and deepen the body’s own capacity for self-healing. The Cannabis Health Index (CHI) is an in-depth reference that combines insights from 1,000+ annotated studies from the fields of cannabinoid and consciousness research. CHI presents combined practical insights relevant to most major chronic illnesses.

Ask Marijuana Chef: California Mist

Now, you can ask any of your marijuana cooking questions to pot chef, California Mist or marijuana enthusiast, Gary Indiana. Simply post your questions in the comments section or send us your medical marijuana themed questions to our How to cook with medical marijuana Facebook page.

This week we were asked a marijuana question about cancer. Cancer is really a terrible disease and many say that marijuana greatly helps them with nausea and pain caused by the cancer. Here we are going to answer this medical marijuana question:

Help!!!! I have been cooking sweets (chocolates, cookies and candies) for a friend who has a lot of pain due to cancer. I have been reading lots of forums but get a variety of info. For medicating pain, not looking for a buz, what is the best extraction method and recommended dosage. I’m using a cheese strand and have bud and trimmings to work with. Trimmings are easier on the pocket but at times get a plant or two that isn’t fully mature to cook w/. Please please please let me know your thoughts. Friend also requested gummies the last time she was over. Thoughts on that as well. – Katy

First off, I am so sorry that your friend is suffering and I took so long to receive your letter. Hopefully your cooking has helped them have much relief.

Trimmings are great, but a plant that isn’t fully mature isn’t going to have all the medicinal properties you might need. Although, some people prefer trimming or bud from immature plants. The structure of the THC molecules evolve as it matures. You would be best to try and find a medication with high CBD. If this isn’t possible and you can only work with what you have… Take the trimmings and put them in a slow cooker with 2 cups of coconut oil (alleged cancer fighter!) Leave it in there for four hours. After this, let the oil cool and use a wire mesh strainer and store it in a glass container in the fridge. Then take the left marijuana put it back in the slow cooker with 1/2 cup of coconut oil and the water. Do the same process but after extracting put this in the freezer and scrape the oil off the top when it hardens. That way you will extract everything but have a more potent medication.

Don’t make sweets for a cancer patient. Sugar makes cancer much much worse. You need to do something like a smoothie.

Put kale, and other cancer fighters in the smoothies with organic strawberries, raspberries and other cancer fighters with 1 tbsp of oil. It will work fantastically!

Or just give them the oil and some smoothie recipes. Everyone has a blender!

Regarding the weed gummies: Pot Gummies are a decent way of medicating. Most people make them with hash and glycerin, oil or butter. The oil takes a lot more chemistry to pull off, the butter interferes with the texture of the gummy and the glycerine extractions always seen to be missing something. Maybe a few of the substantial number of compounds in marijuana aren’t transferred over into a glycerin extraction. Of course, this is just speculation. But many marijuana patients find a glycerin high much different than one from cannabis that has been extracted into pot butter or marijuana oil.

Thank’s for askin’

Dank Desserts: Stoned Strawberry Kiwi Shortcakes (Baked Book Preview Recipe!)

Stoned Strawberry Kiwi Shortcakes

Marijuana Cooking / Baking / Deserts

Who doesn’t like STRAWBERRIES? This twist on Strawberry Shortcakes adds a delicious Strawberry-Kiwi sauce to incorporate your medication in this delicate dessert.

The purpose of clarifying the butter and using freshly made Cannabis Butter is to ensure the best consistency in your dessert. The left over plant matter that is strained away is still quite potent. Please see the “Using Left Over Plant Materials” section to ensure you do not waste any of your medication.

Biscuits
2 + 1/3 cups baking mix
2/3 cups milk
3 tbsp melted butter
3 tbsp cane sugar

Pre-heat oven to 425*f. Mix melted butter with cane sugar in small bowl. Mix together all ingredients together in large bowl until you have a soft nearly pliable dough. Form six biscuits on an ungreased baking pan. Bake in oven for 10-12 minutes until tops are a very light golden brown.

Cannabis Butter
3 tbsp butter
3 grams High Grade Medical Cannabis Bud
small ramekin

Pre-heat oven, or preferably convection oven to 300*f. Put butter in a small ramekin, put ramekin in pre-heated oven until butter is melted. Let the butter cool and scrape the white milk solids off the top of the butter and discard. Leave oven on.

Meanwhile, grind or chop Medical Cannabis Buds and remove all stems. Return ramekin to oven at 300* and make sure butter is thoroughly melted. Add ground Medical Cannabis Bud. Stir until all of the plant material is completely covered with butter. Bake the ramekin for 10 minutes at 300*f keeping an eye on the butter for oven temperature discrepancies making sure the butter does not burn.

Strawberry-Kiwi Sauce
½ cup strawberry jam
3 tbsp Cannabis Butter (from earlier)
½ kiwi, diced
1 large strawberry, diced

Strain Melted Cannabis Butter using small fine mesh strainer into small sauce pan. Set aside left over Cannabis material for later use and refrigerate. Bring butter to low simmer, add ½ cup strawberry jam. Whisk aggressively and simmer for ten minutes over low heat. Now add diced kiwi and diced strawberry into mixture. Whisk aggressively and simmer an additional five minutes, paying close attention that the mixture does not start to boil. The key is to have the mixture simmer until the butter is no longer separated and you are left with a beautifully reduced sauce. Pour into a glass bowl and allow the Strawberry-Kiwi sauce to cool slightly.

How to assemble; Stoned Strawberry Kiwi Shortcakes
4 cups strawberries
6 biscuits (recipe above)
Strawberry-Kiwi Sauce (recipe above)
1 container frozen whipped topping, thawed

Slice strawberries to desired thickness, remove stems. Slice biscuits in half. Spoon generous layer of whipped topping onto bottom half of biscuit, smooth with spoon. Layer strawberries on top of whipped topping. Drizzle Strawberry-Kiwi Sauce over strawberries. Place top half of biscuit on top. Top with a dollop of whipped topping and sliced strawberries.

Marijuana Strain Review : Cindy 99

The smell is almost too traditional. It’s a bit earthy and sweet yet not recognizable like Sour Diesel or Sonoma Coma. It’s just like opening up a bag of the stuff your dealer used to bring you. Before the wonderful world of Medical Marijuana to heal our bodies and our souls.

@SexyxGamer / Cali Mist: Wow, I think my face is tingling. No, my face is certainly tingling. I was thinking about grabbing a non-hfcs energy drink from the fridge. I’m not going to need it now. I have nausea pretty prevalently on a regular basis, now is one of those times. The Cindy 99 strain isn’t making it better. In fact, I think it made it slightly worse. I’m not throwing the baby out with the bathwater, there are some definite perks to this strain. Each strain effects everyone differently and for me this brought on a wave of energy, increased color perception and everythings a little more vivid. The world seems like a less dark and depressing place and my anxiety has dropped down to such a barely noticeable level. I forgot I was freaking out! I really recommend this to those who suffer from chronic fatigue, anxiety, depression and narcolepsy. What a fabulous pick me up! Now to go grab some indica edbles to deal with this tummy ache. Ow!

@StonedCognition: A solid heady high, perfect for daytime smoking and on the go toking.

Cannabis Kitchen is Busy at Work

spicy sausage cheddar biscuits

Cannabis Kitchen is hard at work on the second book. I can’t share this recipe yet, but I can show you these enticing biscuits.  These biscuits are spicy sausage cheddar biscuits. Inspired by cheddar muffins purchased in the strange wasteland often referred to as “Canada.” These go above and beyond upgrading flavor and infusing marijuana. Smother them in country gravy or just shovel them into your mouth. Regardless of how you eat them it’ll be hard not to eat all of them in one sitting.

Van-Soy-Canna Pancakes

One day I really wanted pancakes, but sadly my kitchen was bare of milk. I did, on the other hand, have an abundance (12 containers) of Costco’s Kirkland organic vanilla soy milk. So this is my hobbled together recipe for Vanilla Soy Cannabis Pancakes.

1 C. flour

1 1/2 T. sugar

2 t. baking powder

1/2 t. baking soda

1/4 t. nutmeg

1/2 t. cinnamon

1/2 t. salt

1. C. vanilla soy milk

1 egg

2 T. canna-oil

1/2 t. vanilla extract

Preheat skillet on stove top on medium heat. Sift together the dry ingredients. Then whisk together, in a separate bowl,  the milk, egg, canna-oil, and vanilla extract together. Combine both wet and dry ingredients. Pour 1/4 cup of the batter into the preheated skillet, per pancake, fit as many as you can. Wait until bubbles start to show on top and the bottom edge becoming brown, about 3 minutes and then flip the pancake and cook for an additional minute or so. cannabis pancakes
