Recipe: Cannabis-Infused Banana Bread

G-13 and Agent Orange, two strains names inspired by acts of the U.S. Government, both pack a powerful punch and contain some of the most delicious terpene profiles I have ever come across.

This recipe, called G-Banana Bread because it’s made with two government-inspired strains, is the perfect quick bread to relieve severe pain while promoting a strong body high with an uplifting sense of well being.

After walking into my kitchen and seeing overly ripe bananas, I was hit with the thought of making banana bread to make use of the rapidly degrading fruit. As a pairing, I decided to go with G-13 and Agent Orange. The bananas provide a great base for the citrus apple and pine of the G-13 plus the citrus orange flavor profiles of the Agent Orange.

Psychedelicatessen: Mixed Greens, Mango and Pineapple with Cannabis-Curry Vinaigrette

If you eat cannabis food, Scott Durrah wants you to take responsibility for your own destiny because you’re the only one who understands your own tolerance. With this fresh, bright salad, Scott can feed people of varying tolerance levels by serving the vinaigrette made with a quarter cup of cannabis-infused olive oil on the side. Diners can control the dosage by sprinkling on the dressing with a heavy or light hand.

Vitamin C-rich mangoes have high levels of myrcene molecules, which are also a dominant terpene in cannabis. Because of this, researchers are studying whether mangoes’ reputation of increasing, strengthening and lengthening cannabis’s euphoric effects is scientifically true.

Our advice? Eat the mango as if that were true. Dress the salad lightly the first time you try it. (Curry powder blends vary. Start out using less than this recipe calls for and taste before you add more.)

Caliva: Cannabis Grown, Tested and Sold Under One Roof

The People and the Place 

A palm tree and a giant green cross distinguish the large warehouse from its neighbors in the industrial core of San Jose. Needless to say, it’s hard to miss Caliva. As you walk into the waiting room you could easily be walking into a trendy spa. Clean lines, hanging plants, natural materials, and bright open spaces set a tone of laid-back sophistication. The dispensary has a long counter that can fit up to 6 budtenders during the busy lunch and post work rush making the dispensary luxuriously spacious.

The interior at CalivaBelieve it or not, the building is over 100,000 square feet. While it may seem a bit overboard for a dispensary, Caliva is not just a dispensary. Taking locally sourced flowers to the next level, they grow a large portion of their cannabis in-house. Marketing Manager Ashley Erickson beams “We have control over every stage of the process from seed to sale.” Caliva aims to grow 70 percent of their own flowers. By growing their bud in-house, Caliva can better respond to customer preferences such as the popular CBD strain Charlotte’s Web. In addition to CBD-rich strains, Caliva plans to offer limited edition heritage strains. Having a lab onsite, they can test flowers for potency, mold and terpenes at any stage of the growth cycle. This is a seriously unique advantage for the growers.

Edibles Recipe: How to Make Homemade Cannabis-Infused Bone Broth

Using a slow cooker allows you to go about your business while cooking your nourishing broth for hours.  And hours. The longer you cook the broth the better it will be. You need to remember that the water evaporates, so check it every few hours and add water as needed. Adding decarbed cannabis adds a whole new level of enjoyment. Although you skim the fat off the top as it cooks, enough of the cannabis adheres to the gelatin and collagen resulting in a heady, mildly high-making broth. If you are interested in a more potent stock, add cannabis oil or butter to your cup before eating. Roasting the bones and vegetables before cooking will result in a deeper, more complex flavor. Enjoy the broth by itself or use as a base for soups and sauces. Bone broth can be made with chicken, lamb or any combination of bones.

INGREDIENTS

5 lbs. beef bones
