Marijuana “Green” Oil : Podcast

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.

Cannabis Kitchen reports!

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?

Killer Cornbread

This is so good guys. I recommend making two of them (one to get medicated, the other to eat when you ARE medicated). Don’t make the same mistake I did!

  • 1 box Jiffy corn muffin mix
  • 1 can creamed corn
  • 1 can regular corn, remove water – strain from can
  • 2 eggs – slightly beaten
  • 1/2 c. sour cream
  • 1 stick Melted Medicated butter (if you want to add extra butter – just add more jiffy mix to get the right consistency for extra strength edibles)

You want your oven at 350*

Melt butter on stovetop or in double-boiler (on low! do not ruin your medication by burning the THC),

Add corns to melted butter & stir. Add sour cream & stir. Add Jiffy Mix & stir. Pour into Baking Dish. Drizzle with Cannabutter (optional lol!)

Bake in a 8×8 – uncovered dish for 45 minutes!

Hiding the taste of Cannabutter

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)!


I don’t really care for the flavor that accompanies ground beef, but I love tacos. As you can imagine I was struck with a beam of intuition in the form of an idea! Cannabis Tacos? Oh my!

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.

Reader Question:

  • Do you think the book should be called Get Baked! or Cannabis Kitchen?

As promised, Very Special-K

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.


I’m already thinking of a way to improve this recipe exponentially (Hint: CannaBears!) I’m looking forward to trying this one out! My mind is spinning with possibilities. Safe to say, I’m excited!

Very, Special K

Testing, Testing! It seems that many of the marijuana cereal square bar recipes do not call for very much butter. We’ve gone ahead and changed that to make some very potent crispies indeed! 1/2 Cup of CannaButter for 12 servings! We will let you know how these medicated munchies turn out! ~~~ Munch!

Cooking with Kief

It seems like I’ve been cooking with marijuana forever, but I’ve never yet experimented with Kief! When my dad had cancer, we always kept our crystal on our plant matter.  What wasn’t smoked was turned into Hash or got mixed into the shake bag, for Butter or Tincture.

Recently Kief really has piqued my curiosity. I’ve tried smoking it, and medicating with Kief Banana Bread (which even as an experienced medical user – I found entirely too strong!). I’ve been asking lots of questions in the Medical Marijuana Community and I’ve been getting a plethora of mixed feedback when it comes to cooking with these tricky little glans!!!

I have been told:

  • Kief: Does not need to be cooked. Is this true or is it a Myth?
  • Kief: Only needs to be heated or “warmed” lightly to take effect. true or a Myth?
  • Kief can be ruined if treated like other plant matter! True or Myth?

I’m so confused!

I even spoke with a lovely Cannabis Pastry Chef, She told me that Kief is digestible without processing of any kind! What? I thought THC had to be bound to fat? I’m going to need to test this out for myself.

I’m an adventurer, but not that much of an adventurer! We are going to try some Insta-Medicinal Coffee to see if Kief had medicinal benefits with only minimal heat exposure.

I prefer to use the Starbucks VIA Ready Brew. I find they are a great pick me up when I’m really in need of a good cup of Coffee. You can get them in bulk at Costco, but I prefer to buy the “Strong” Blend from the Starbucks Stores. If you’ve never tried Starbucks instant coffee you can try asking your local Starbucks for a Sample.

I started off My Insta-Medicinal Coffee by boiling my Reverse Osmosis water. I choose to boil my water in a electronic tea pot. Electronic Tea Pots are extremely convenient for Coffee, Tea, and Cooking. You can steam milk for your coffee preparation if you would prefer a richer, sweeter cup of coffee with less of a cannabis flavor.

Over medium-low heat, in a small saucepan on the stove, I use three table spoons of Vitamin D milk. I heat the Milk until it begins to steam gently. I add .07 grams of Kief to the Milk (should have be sifted to avoid lumps!). I stir the milk in with a fork, and the Kief is being stubborn. I quickly switch to a wire whisk and I swirl the Kief throughout the milk.

Cooking with Kif : Coffee

I add 3/4 of an shot of Kahluah. I want to offer the THC in the plant matter a little more to bond to than just the fat in the milk. I swirl the mixture around with my wire whisk a few more times, as it steams for a minute or two, before I pour it into my pre-prepared coffee. Mix in Sugar to Taste, top with whipped cream if you desire.

It’s offering me a “Medium” on the medicated flavor scale. It’s not too potent or pungent, but it’s not the most delectable drink I’ve ever downed either. The Kief seems to gather at the bottom of the Cup with some of the Instant Coffee Crystals. It’s been about thirty minutes since then and I’m definitely feeling some of the medicinal effects.

Test Kitchen Questions:

  • What are you experiences when it comes to cooking with Kief?
  • Do you heat Kief before eating it?
  • How do you prepare your Kief?
  • How do you spell the word? Kif? Keif? Kief?

Cannabis Test Kitchen

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.
