Why You Should Cook With Cannabis

by Wendy Weedler 4 years ago in cooking / health

But seriously... why not?

Since the earliest periods of human history, we have been using one particular herb in a number of ways. It is an ancient herb—one that promotes healing, happiness, and relaxation. With medicinal benefits for both physical and mental health, there is not another plant in our world that is quite like it. This herb is cannabis.

Cannabis can be found in a number of forms. It is most recognizable by its plant form, but you can also find the psychoactive ingredients in the herb’s oil extracts. Modern science has allowed us to unlock marijuana’s many positive traits, but what would you say if you could unlock these traits at home? What if there was a way to consume cannabis that was both potent and able to produce long-lasting positive effects? Luckily there is.

Cooking with cannabis is the perfect solution for the cannabis user who wants to consume the medicinal herb healthily and effectively. Without any strain on your lungs or your throat, edibles can give you the same quality of life as that of a non-smoker. Even if you do make the personal choice to smoke, it is important to understand that edibles affect the user differently than other traditional methods of using cannabis. Edibles not only produce stronger effects, but these effects also last much longer. Before you start cooking with cannabis, be sure you are ready for the experience and do not plan on operating any heavy machinery!

Like many herbs and spices, cannabis has an exceptionally distinct flavor. The active ingredients in the plant best stick to fats such as butters and oils, but sometimes these fats take on too strong of a flavor if the cannabis is not properly incorporated. That strong flavor can sometimes seem difficult to work with, which is why it is important to learn how to balance the other flavors in your culinary masterpiece. This cookbook is meant to guide you in your journey to create delicious edibles of your own—edibles that properly add a little ganja to your goodies. Strong flavors need balance, and this handy guide will teach you how to do just that.

So what are you waiting for? Your favorite recipes are ready for a mind-bending twist. Soon you will find yourself well on your way to becoming a cannabis connoisseur...
