Mastering.Cannabis.Culinary.Arts

 

Marijuana for Nonsmokers: Mastering the Cannabis Culinary Arts Learn 2 quick, easy, and effective recipes for cooking with cannabis.

Not everyone who uses cannabis enjoys the process of inhaling thick, tar-filled smoke into their lungs. While there has never been a medical link established between cannabis smoke and lung cancer or emphysema–as there has been with tobacco smoke–it can cause bronchitis and other breathing difficulties in some people. Luckily, there is an array of alternative methods for ingesting cannabis.

The price of cannabis edibles at the local medical marijuana dispensaries may seem a bit high for some people, ranging between $5-$10 for a single cookie or brownie, and this could be a problem for low-income patients who rely on these edibles as an essential medication.

However, cooking with cannabis yourself is easy and much cheaper. I’ll provide two simple recipes here; one for making an all-purpose butter that can be added to any other recipe–for those who enjoy creative gourmet cooking–and another for quickly making an effective, high-orbit cannabis cookie in under 30 minutes.

All-Purpose Cannabis Butter

Ingredients:

*1 cube of butter or margarine.

*1 or 2 cups of finely crushed cannabis leaf, or 1/4 to 1/2 of an ounce of finely crushed cannabis buds.

*Water

Instructions:

*Melt the cube of butter in a skillet.

*Slowly mix the cannabis leaf into the melted butter, at the very lowest possible “simmering” setting on your stove. Be extremely careful not to burn the plant matter!

*Add a small amount of water to keep the mixture from sticking, but no more than a few tablespoons.

*Cover the skillet, but be sure to repeatedly stir the mixture, and continuously check it, to make sure that it doesn’t burn.

*Cook for at least 40 minutes. The longer you cook it, the stronger it becomes, for up to about 12 hours.

*After cooking, then let it cool. This butter is highly psychoactive and can be added to any recipe that you like.

Magic Peanut Butter Treats

Ingredients:

*1 big scoop of peanut butter

*1 ounce of finely crushed cannabis leaf, or 1/4 to 1/2 of an ounce of finely crushed cannabis buds.

*A dozen stoned wheat crackers

*Raisins or chocolate chips (optional)

Instructions:

Preheat oven to 290 degrees. Mix the ground cannabis leaf thoroughly with the peanut butter, until it is thick and green, and spread this paste evenly onto the crackers. Lay out the crackers on a cookie sheet, and place this into the oven for 20 to 30 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool. Add raisins or chocolate chips on the top, if you like, and enjoy.

Green.House.Seed.Company

 

Green House Seed Co Green House Seed Company is proud to present it’s youtube page. Check out how they grow the best cannabis / marijuana plants in the world. Take a look behind the scenes of the legendary Green House Coffeeshops and Seed Company, a real Amsterdam legend.

The Green House Seed Company is one of the most successful cannabis business in the world. Winner of many international awards (34 High times Cannabis Cups, numerous Highlife Cups, and many more private awards in many countries), it is leader in cannabis genetics. Arjan, owner and founder, has been acclaimed The King of Cannabis. He has always been committed to hunt, preserve and breed the best cannabis genetics in the world, and to ensure that the growers choose the best type of plant, based upon their location, logistics and personal knowledge. Thanks to a lifetime of travels dedicated to the cannabis plants, Arjan has been able to collect a huge database of real landraces from all over the world, and from those he created the plants that are now the most awarded in history.

Whether you are a first timer or an experienced grower, the first and most important distinction to be made is the choice between growing outdoor or indoor. Both offer advantages and disadvantages. Once the decision is made, it is important to get the right type of genetics for the purpose. Most cannabis plants can be grown indoor or outdoor, but the peculiar characteristics of each strain always guarantee best results in one of the two ways. The personal or commercial nature of the operation will always influence the choice of the genetics. Sativas are usually regarded as higher quality, while indica strains are faster and more commercial.

Between the over 20 strains now sold by the Green House Seed Company there are true indoor champions and true outdoor champions. The Himalaya Gold is one of the most recommended outdoor plants, because of its genetic resistance to cold nights, altitude, pests and diseases. The origin of the plant is from the Himalayan region, and it proved an incredibly versatile and adaptable strain. Another true outdoor champion is the Arjan’s Haze #1, a cross of the G13 with the Laos that gives great production and unique sativa high. The Arjan’s Haze #1 performs very well indoor, but outdoor the plants can grow to reach their development-peak and the maximum productivity. Moreover, solar light activates the production of a wider range of cannabinoids in the buds, guaranteeing a truly psychedelic effect.

On the indoor side, the best plants of the Green House Seed Company are King’s Kush, K-Train, Trainwreck, Lemon Skunk, Cheese, Great White Shark, White Rhino, El Nino and White Widow. The last four of these strains belong to the “white” family and share a common genetic origin. They are shorter, bushier plants with great bud production and amazing resin production. The bouquet and taste vary considerably, as well as the effect. The White Rhino in particular is very suitable for sea of green systems, where the plants are kept very close to one another and flowered at an early stage. It has a sweet taste and a great narcotic effect that made it popular with MS patients and chronic pain patients. The Great White Shark and Trainwreck are very popular between indica lovers worldwide. Their yields are amazing and the buds rock-hard.

The Hawaiian Snow, the Strawberry Haze and the Neville’s Haze are both outdoor or indoor plants, but are mostly grown indoor because of their longer flowering time. Sometimes these varieties are given 12 hours of light from the very beginning, to keep them short and to shorten the flowering time.

There are also plants that are very suitable for both indoor and outdoor conditions, such as the El Niño, the Church, the Big Bang and the Super Silver Haze. These strains will perform incredibly good both ways, with some differences in plant development and yield. The Super Silver Haze in particular can produce more when grown outdoor, as the plants can develop taller and stronger branches can sustain the heavy buds. The choice of the genetics remains one of the key factors in the success of every grower or breeder, and it is very important to acquire the most information before committing to the task.

If you come to Amsterdam please visit their Coffeeshops and ask for a Seed Catalogue! They will be happy to advise the best for your needs. Or, if you live too far from Amsterdam to pay a visit, check their online shop on www.greenhouseseeds.nl (No sales of cannabis seeds to USA, sorry!)

You can also check out their new merchandise line on www.greenhouse.tm

CNBC.Marijuana.Inc.

 

Inside America’s Pot Industry America’s marijuana industry is thriving and raking in what’s estimated to be tens of billions of dollars nationwide.

This is a documentary called ‘Marijuana Inc.’ running on CNBC… it’s sweet that the mainstream media is talking about marijuana in more positive ways. This was definitely not happening 10 or 15 years ago :]

While it may not be traded on Wall Street any time soon, marijuana has become a booming cash crop. CNBC’s Trish Regan goes behind the scenes to explore the inner workings of this secretive industry, focusing on Northern California’s “Emerald Triangle,” now the marijuana capital of the U.S. In this scenic pocket of America, the pot business, much of it legal under state law, now makes up as much as two-thirds of the local economy.

The.Union

 

The Union – The Business Behind Getting High – A very well built documentary about cannabis and drug prohibition. Does the drug prohibition work? Have a look and think for yourself. Professionals (lawyers, law-enforcers, teachers, scientists etc) speak out!
Ever wonder what British Columbia’s most profitable industries are? Logging? Fishing? Tourism? Ever think to include marijuana? If you haven’t, think again. No longer a hobby for the stereotypical hippie culture of the ’60s, BC’s illegal marijuana trade industry has evolved into an unstoppable business giant, dubbed by those involved as ‘The Union’. Commanding upwards of $7 billion Canadian annually, The Union’s roots stretch far and wide. With up to 85% of all ‘BC Bud’ being exported to the United States, the BC marijuana trade has become an international issue with consequences that extend far beyond our borders.

When record profits are to be made, who are the players, and when do their motives become questionable?
– Why is marijuana illegal?
– What health risks do we really face?
– Does prohibition work?
– What would happen if we taxed it?
– Medicine, paper, fuel, textiles, food, etc. Are we missing something?


Follow filmmaker Adam Scorgie as he dives head first into Canada’s most socially acceptable illegal activity. Along the way, Adam demystifies the underground market and brings to light how such a large industry can function while remaining illegal. By interviewing experts from around the globe, including growers, clippers, police officers, criminologists, economists, medical doctors, politicians and pop culture icons, Scorgie examines the cause and effect nature of the business behind getting high. Nobody’s innocent in this exploration of an industry that may be profiting more by being illegal. Join Adam Scorgie as he unravels the mystery of The Union.

Cannabis.Chemistry

 

Cannabis Chemistry – THC
Nathanael Horton
Feb 9, 2011

Having a basic understanding of THC chemistry will allow you to make informed decisions when it comes to marijuana use and preparation. I decided to research tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) on my own and explain the difference between THC and THC acid, including where you might find examples of each. Specifically, THC is a phytocannabinoid of which there are 8 main classes including CBD. The fragrant aroma of the trichomes, where resin is secreted containing the vast majority of the plant’s THC production, is actually from terpenes in the resin. THC itself is practically odorless, for example, when using a vaporizer.

Let’s review some high school chemistry. The chemically active parts of an atom are the positive proton nucleus and the negative electron cloud surrounding it. Think of atoms as magnetic billiard balls of different sizes and power of attraction and repulsion. Water, H2O, is a molecule of one oxygen atom with two hydrogen atoms. Oxygen has 8 protons while hydrogen has only 1. This means oxygen has a high electron affinity and pulls electrons towards it much more strongly than hydrogen. This is called a polar-covalent bond, where the electron cloud is unevenly distributed between the oxygen and hydrogen atoms in the molecule. The polarity of the water molecule creates all the unique properties of water like surface tension, freezing point, and solubility. Click to read more about the chemical properties of H2O.

Cannabis Chemistry - Polar Covalent BondCannabis Chemistry - Delta 9 tetrahydrocannabinol

THC is not soluble in water because it is an aromatic terpenoid. It’s structure has carbon rings (on the left) and a hydrocarbon tail characteristic of fat molecules (on the right). Organic carbon fat molecules like THC has much lower polarity because electrons are shared more evenly among the carbon atoms. That is why THC gets absorbed by fatty tissue in the body or why cannabutter is so effective at dissolving THC. In chemistry, “like dissolves like”. Fluid compounds with similar composition, structure and/or polarity will dissolve one into the other. Since water is polar, it doesn’t dissolve THC. Just remember that THC is hydrophobic (water-fearing) and use safe solvents like alcohol or mechanical methods of THC extraction.

THC acid (THCA) or 11-nor-9-Carboxy-THC is a psychotropically inactive compound that the cannabis plant secretes. To chemically convert THCA to THC, THC is heated to about 106 degrees Celsius, or about 222 degrees Fahrenheit. This is achieved when we heat cannabis in joints, bongs and vaporizers. The heat will decarboxylate the THCA to produce carbon dioxide, water vapor and psychoactive THC.

When burning cannabis leaf, you will also get smoke from the plant material containing stuff that makes you cough. Cannabis smoke contains known carcinogens, but it also has cancer fighting molecules like cannabidiol. That is why studies have shown that even heavy cannabis users are not at higher risk for lung cancer. For more, read Cannabis smoking. Because of obvious legal restrictions, cannabis medical research has been suppressed, but exciting discoveries are being made. Next time I will focus on the CBD, another phytocannabinoid that has gotten a lot of attention recently. Cannabis Chemistry - Decarboxlyation of the THC

NORML.ORG

 

NORML Working to Reform Marijuana Laws

NORML is a nonprofit, public-interest lobby that for more than 30 years has provided a voice for those Americans who oppose marijuana prohibition. We represent the interests of the tens of millions of Americans who smoke marijuana responsibly and believe the recreational and medicinal use of marijuana should no longer be a crime.

NORML supports the removal of all criminal penalties for the private possession and responsible use of marijuana by adults, including the cultivation for personal use, and the casual nonprofit transfers of small amounts. This model, similar to that recommended to Congress by President Nixon’s esteemed Shafer Commission in 1972, is called “decriminalization.”

NORML additionally supports the development of a legally controlled market for marijuana, where consumers could purchase it from a safe, legal and regulated source. This model is referred to as “legalization.”

NORML believes that marijuana smoking is not for kids and should only be used responsibly by adults. As with alcohol consumption, it must never be an excuse for misconduct or other bad behavior. Driving or operating heavy equipment while impaired from marijuana should be prohibited.

NORML strongly supports the right of patients to use marijuana as a medicine when their physician recommends it to relieve pain and suffering. NORML has advocated for the legal use of medicinal marijuana since 1972.

Lastly, NORML supports the right of farmers to commercially cultivate the non-psychoactive strain of cannabis known as hemp for industrial purposes, such as food and fiber production.

Hemp.For.Victory

 

Entire Film – US Government asks farmers to grow it – Propaganda Film 1942 Produced by the US Government in 1942…Interesting to learn that Dupont Chemical funded the anti- hemp / marijuana effort. This is because they had patents on new synthetic fibers and Hemp had a new machine that would put them out of business if hemp were to be used for clothes. Dupont also sold – and still does many of the chemicals to wood pulp producers… so we continue to cut down forests… when Hemp could save millions of trees, be used as an alternative bio fuel and the US could easily grow enough hemp to eliminate the need for oil… so Big oil does not want hemp legal either. Neither do the drug companies… they can’t patent it. They would rather keep selling you their drugs. By keeping it illegal the lawyers, courts etc… also make a buck. You can only get high from the female flower – nobody has ever died from smoking a joint. Of course the alcohol and tobacco companies would prefer to keep their monopoly as well. So we have all the BIG Corporate players… against legalizing it. Yet if it were legalized – we would solve many issues and have a multi billion dollar hemp economy as it can be used for 1000’s of products. A few other good films to watch are run from the cure & hemp conspiracy – Google it!

Law.Enforcement.Against.Prohibition

 

LEAP – Law Enforcement Against Prohibition Founded on March 16, 2002, LEAP is made up of current and former members of the law enforcement and criminal justice communities who are speaking out about the failures of our existing drug policies. Those policies have failed, and continue to fail, to effectively address the problems of drug abuse, especially the problems of juvenile drug use, the problems of addiction, and the problems of crime caused by the existence of a criminal black market in drugs.

Although those who speak publicly for LEAP are people from the law enforcement and criminal justice communities, a large number of our supporting members do not have such experience. You don’t have to have law enforcement experience to join LEAP.

By continuing to fight the so-called “War on Drugs”, the US government has worsened these problems of society instead of alleviating them. A system of regulation and control of these substances (by the government, replacing the current system of control by the black market) would be a less harmful, less costly, more ethical and more effective public policy.

Please consider joining LEAP and helping LEAP to achieve it’s goals: 1) to educate the public, the media and policy makers about the failure of current policies, and 2) to restore the public’s respect for police, which respect has been greatly diminished by law enforcement’s involvement in enforcing drug prohibition.

Nice.People.Taking.Drugs

 

Nice People Taking Drugs That’s the name of a campaign launched by Release, a nonprofit service and advocacy organization in the United Kingdom. The campaign aims to inspire a more honest discussion and approach to drug use in our society and also to highlight the stigma faced by people who use or have used illicit drugs. Release believes that the present regime for the regulation of drugs will be regarded by future generations as one of the great policy disasters of the modern period. These arrangements result in far too many abuses of human rights, fail to protect individual and public health, erode respect for the law, undermine democracy and generate corruption. The War on Drugs is in fact a recipe for a society at war with itself, and this is what we find when we examine the state of global drug control.

Rather than committing to the fantasy of a drug-free world – something that never has existed and never will -we should educate and regulate to restrict their negative effects. Whether this happens through a reinterpretation and reconfiguration of the present structure, or requires a more radical overhauling of institutional and juridical arrangements, remains to be seen.
