When the weed fries, it gets crispy. If any of you have experienced the culinary delight that is deep fried spinach – you will be familiar with the unique texture of fried marijuana. Unfortunately marijuana prepared in the same manner does not boast the same attractive flavor.
Why does this matter you ask? Isn’t the plant matter disposed of at the end of the THC extraction process?
Not in the preparation of Cannaoil. Due to the unique “tissue paper” like texture of the fried marijuana. Even when strained vigilantly the spongy material soaks up the valuable THC infused oils.
Not to fret, this is easily rectified by crushing the fried leaves and adding them to the appropriate recipe.

I have to admit. Even when it comes to doing something you absolutely love it can get discouraging. Here at Cannabis Kitchen, we try not to get discouraged – but alas everyday is not sunshine and rainbows! Due to a landlord foreclosure we are forced to prepare and test recipes in our motel room until we find a new home with a suitable kitchen! Living in a motel to live the dream – scientifically correct recipes for the right medicine. The medicine that suits your illness.
This book isn’t just about basic brownies. This book – this blog is about helping you find the right medicine for your specific disability. Be it nausea, fatigue, insomnia, aids or anorexia.
Lavender – Anti-Anxiety Brownies. Measured so each Brownie Square is exactly one Gram of Lavender Bud. Tasty!
With this in mind, I set out today to cure anxiety with cannabis medicated food. In our codependent society today people often are self conscious worriers that have spiraled into terrible patterns that cause debilitating symptoms. No matter why anxiety exists, it seems nearly impossible for the person with social anxiety, post traumatic stress or agoraphobia, to get through the day without a constant fear of an on-coming panic attack.
That’s why I sought out some Lavender Mid grade buds to try and create a very mellow medicated high that would fight anxiety and leave the person feeling relaxed much like the prescription drugs in the benzo category. Those drugs often lose effectiveness quickly and can be very addictive. A cannabis edible lasts 4-6 hours and is generally considered a non addictive medication.
This is a TEST kitchen. Here you see me using my counter top oven (big toaster oven) for the first time as well as a Budnt pan from Target. I made these with cake mix to test my Oil Batch Potency. The pan said it was non-stick but the cake crumbled and fell apart when being removed from the pan. What a disaster!
I’ve shared a batch of my most recent brownies with some fellow patients- I hope they report back to me on how they turned out!
Reader Question! Would you please…
- Would you buy edibles marketed specifically for different ailments?
- Do you prefer big sweet edibles, or smaller more potent edibles?
- Does Organic matter to you? (Both bud and Ingredients)
- How much would you pay for a potent edible?
For Medical Marijuana patients who Medicate via Edibles might find the taste of the Cannabutter unsettling. A little known fact – Marijuana can actually make food taste better! Unfortunately, that is not the case when it comes to Cannabutter. This is especially true when the THC is extracted via the Boiling Water Process. The butter loses quality while the plant matter boils and bubbles into the fat. We will get into enhancing food flavor with Marijuana in some of our later posts, and of course in the pages of the Baked Book or Cannabis Kitchen (I haven’t decided yet)!
Here is how I made the Tacos using a basic Taco Seasoning and a Double Dose of Medicated Butter for these extra strong Edibles.
Spread your recommended dose of Medicated Butter on the soft Taco Shell, and top with Taco Meat.
Level the Taco Meat with a spoon and top with shredded Cheddar or Mexican Cheese Blend. If you are using refried beans be sure to first spread them on top of the butter before you put on the Taco Meat. Put in the oven at 350* until cheese melts and top with favorite Taco Toppings like onion, tomato, salsa, lettuce, beans, guac, sour cream, and cilantro.
Finished Medicated Butter Tacos! Notice the *green* sauce under the taco seasoning from the fat as the beef, cheese, and butter all gets together and has a party in your mouth! Surprisingly this had little to none medicated flavor.
- Do you think the book should be called Get Baked! or Cannabis Kitchen?
I’ll be honest here, these were not very tasty. The cannabutter flavor was over powering and it made this recipe *greasy* and guessing a lot of butter got wasted not only in the bottom of the cooking pot, but in the Hanna Montana Rockstar Cupcake Liners. They did work but, Boo! This one could have been better.
Marijuana has touched me deeply. Living with an autoimmune disorder It has reached out to me by making each and every day bearable, and even something to look forward to.
The families who have experienced this plant’s near magical healing powers transform the lives of their loved ones, patients with a wide variety of diseases, disorders and sicknesses, all know the truth.
Marijuana changes lives.
So I’ve decided to write a book – Dedicated to my Dad. My Dad, an amazing Marijuana Advocate and Medicinal Marijuana Patient.
I miss you Dad.
