icon  24 Nov, 2016  /  icon  4        Author: Najaf Najaf

During thanksgiving, everyone usually pigs out on food. Its the day to lose concerns about your diet and pig out. At least you have other 364 days to worry about that diet. On this special day, you can take on as much food as you can handle. In that case, marijuana recipes can be an exciting venture for you. In the culture of cannabis, it is expected that many people will toke up prior to having the main meal. How about going further to make edibles for your thanksgiving occasion? In recent times, the US has experienced many states legalizing the use of marijuana, both for medical and recreational purposes. Therefore, you can now access weed through various marijuana delivery services spread out within your region. Having legally acquired marijuana from an authorized dealer, it is time to make your edibles. Bring your creativity to the kitchen, here are 5 marijuana-infused recipes that can make your Thanksgiving more special than you have always done it:-

  1. 1. Mashed Potatoes Weed Recipe

Requirements: 3 big russet potatoes, 1 tablespoon of black pepper, 6 ounces of ricotta cheese, 1 tablespoon of kosher Salt, 3 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil, 8 tablespoons of cannabis butter, 1/4 pint of pot milk and 1 tablespoon of chopped thyme

Procedure:

Slice your potatoes into small cubes. Boil them in salted water to a point where you can stub them using a fork but fall off with ease. Mash your cooked potatoes a bit and then add the cannabis butter. Continue with the mashing while mixing with the cannabis butter. Add the remaining ingredients to your potato mash. Carry on with the mashing process to get a uniform mixture. It doesn’t have to be very smooth. You can take it with lumps if you don’t mind.

  1. 2. Green Bean Casserole

Requirements: 2 medium-sized onions, 1/4 teaspoon of ground nutmeg, 1 cup of chicken stock, 1 tablespoon of olive oil, 1/2 cup of bread crumbs, 1 pound of fresh green beans, 3 tablespoons of multi-purpose flour, 3 tablespoons of cannabis butter and a 1/2 teaspoon of minced garlic

Procedure:

Preheat your kitchen oven to about 375°F. Slice your onions into very thin pieces. Heat the olive oil in a big skillet using medium heat. Cook the onions to a deep brown color. Make sure they are caramelized and then toss them with bread crumbs. Heat the weed butter using a large skillet over a low-medium source of heat. Add pepper, garlic and nutmeg. Allow these to cook for about a minute as you keep on stirring. Sprinkle flour over your pan and continue stirring for several minutes. Next, put in the chicken stock and simmer it. Swirl in half and half until you attain a thick mixture. Get off the skillet from the heat and mix ¼ of the onion along, the bread crumb and the green beans. After that, add 1 ½ of quart baking dish using a cooking spray and fill ¾ full using the bean blend. With the remaining onion and bread crumb mixture, dress the top of your pan. While it is still uncovered, bake for about 45 minutes. The mixture should be bubbly and the top brown by the time you take it off the heat.

  1. 3. Cannabis Turkey Recipe

Requirements: 1 medium-sized turkey, ¼ cup of chicken broth, ½ cup of marijuana butter, 1 teaspoon of sweet basil, ½ teaspoon of sage, 1 teaspoon of poultry seasoning, 1 teaspoon of thyme leaves and 1 tablespoon of lemon juice.

Procedure: Heat to melt the marijuana butter using a small saucepan over a low source of heat. Blend in the rest of your ingredients. Start by stuffing the turkey and/or season it using pepper and salt. On your Turkey’s skin, make an incision and force a finger through it, breaking the contact between the meat and the skin. Use a meat injector and squirt a half of the butter mixture under the Turkey’s skin.  Cook your turkey the way you please and baste it using the remaining butter blend after every half an hour until it is fully cooked.

  1. 4. Marijuana-Infused Bread

Requirements:  3 tablespoons of cannabis butter in two portions, 1 ½ cups of water, ¼ cup of non-fat dry milk, 4 Cups of Bread Flower or multipurpose Flour, 3 tablespoons of granulated sugar, 1 ½ tablespoons of salt, 2 tablespoons of finely crushed weed and 2 tablespoons of Active Dry Yeast.

Procedure: For 10 minutes, proof the yeast in warm water using a 1/8 tablespoon of the sugar combined with an equal portion of water. Yeast should release big bubbles at the edges.  In a different bowl, mix the sugar, cannabis, flour and the dry milk using your hands in order to crush the flour and make the mixture fluffy and light. Make a well at the center of the dry ingredients and add the wet ingredients at the center. With your hands, mix all for about 15 minutes. Add extra flour if the mixture is too sticky and wet. On the contrary, add water to make it less firm.  When you have gotten a smooth mixture, cover the bowl using a plastic wrap and keep it in a warm place. Your dough will rise to about twice its original size.  Cut your dough into small pieces and make rolls. Spread cannabis butter over them and cook for about 30 minutes in 350 degrees heat until it changes to golden brown.

  1. 5. Pumpkin Pie

Requirements: 1 16-oz. can of plain pumpkin, a ¼ cup of condensed milk, 2 beaten eggs, 1 teaspoon of vanilla, 1 teaspoon of nutmeg, 1 teaspoon of cinnamon, ½ stick of Cannabutter, 1 9-inch of unbaked pie crust, ¼ cup of brown sugar and 1 teaspoon of molasses.

Procedure: Preheat your kitchen oven to about 350 degrees. Melt the Cannabutter over a low heat source to liquefy. Mix the milk, nutmeg, molasses, vanilla, cinnamon, beaten eggs, pumpkin and brown sugar. Beat the mixture. Add Cannabutter and pour the formed paste into a pastry pie crust. Cook the pie for about 50 minutes. If you insert a knife into the pie and it comes out clean, it is ready.

Marijuana, Its Various Names and Options for Purchase and Growth

Marijuana, Its Various Names and Options for Purchase and Growth


icon  31 May, 2016  /  icon  0        Author: Demo Editor

Marijuana has, and still is, becoming increasingly popular, not just with millennials, but with those in all age groups from Generation X, to baby boomers, and even in some cases those from the Silent Generation. With that said, general interest in the various products offered to consumers has grown right along with this increase in popularity, and interest in the different strains and their names has reached an all time high.

Its no wonder people are interested in all the various strains however, because some of them have down right interesting names. Some of the most famous strain names include: Purple Haze, White Widow, Pineapple Express, Kush, Jack Herer, Sour Diesel, Grape Ape, Durban Poison and more. How these strains got their names however, is another question all together, though one with a relatively simple answer.

3 Factors to Choose From

 Most cannabis strains obtain their name based off of one of three factors: the way they look, (specifically in relation to coloring), the way they taste and/or smell, and where they originate from. For example: the strain of weed known as Purple Haze, gets its name from the clearly purplish ting it exhibits, while the strain of weed known as Pineapple Express gets its name from the very pineapple like aroma it expels both before and during smoking and the strain of weed known as Durban Poison gets its name by originating in Durban, South Africa.

Regardless of which strain and/or name strikes you as most desirable however, mmj is fast becoming a standard within society, especially in regards to medical marijuana. In fact, consumers are now able to buy medical marijuana more easily than ever before, with more states legalizing medical marijuana every year and more dispensers opening up all the time. Furthermore, with the influx of business, many medical marijuana dispensaries are now even offering marijuana delivery services, which is great for those who may be unable to leave their home for various medical or personal reasons.

Overall however, no matter what your reason for smoking is, nor which stain you choose to enjoy, mmj is clearly on the rise and options for purchasing, as well as the number of products and strains available, are increasing every day. In fact, many of the strains we know and love today are being bred to create new and even more inventive strains, ensuring there really is/will be a strain for everyone’s liking.

What You Need to Know about Marijuana Delivery Services


icon  30 May, 2016  /  icon  0        Author: Demo Editor

A lot of people do not know this, but yes, it is very possible for you to have your marijuana delivered to your door, just as you would if you ordered a pizza. For people who do not want to leave their homes, or for those who would require marijuana but not need it right away, marijuana delivery services are the perfect solution. It is legal and it is a great alternative to acquiring marijuana, without visiting a dispensary.

There are a lot of questionable people out here that claim that they operate a marijuana delivery service, but one needs to exercise caution when it comes to such things. If you live in an area where marijuana is legal but for medicinal and recreational purposes, then it will be easier to find a delivery service. Next to living in a state where the operation is legal, you need to be of legal age to use the services. If you are using it for medical reasons, you also need to show proof of a doctor’s prescription. Most dispensaries deliver to their registered members so if you are a first time buyer, the process might include you showing a form of photo identification, in addition to the card from your doctor.

Once all of that is setup, you just call up and make a choice from the menu and give them your address and delivery times. There are some delivery services that make same day deliveries based on the time you order, while other do overnight deliveries if you do not have a need for the product immediately. On arrival with the product, be ready to pay either with cash – the preferred form of payment; or a debit card. With the DEA banning credit cards for pot purchases here in the city of California, cash and debit are the only form of acceptable payments.

Once you have gone through the order process for the first time, it becomes easier to use the delivery services over and again as you are in their database and the more times you purchase, the easier it is to just call up and have it delivered right to your doorsteps.

How Can I Get Medical Marijuana

How Can I Get Medical Marijuana?


icon  13 May, 2016  /  icon  0        Author: Demo Editor

Most people read or hear about using marijuana as a way to handle their illnesses, yet they have no clue how to go about getting the prescription or how to even begin the process of having access to medical marijuana. In order to be able to get medical marijuana, you have to make sure that you are eligible or rather your condition is covered under those in which medical marijuana can be prescribed.

Some of these conditions include: arthritis, multiple sclerosis, cancer, muscle spasms, sleep disorders, anxiety, Crohn’s disease, etc.  If you have also been in an auto accident, and experience some pains or stress disorders as a result, you might be eligible to be prescribed medical marijuana as a way to treat your condition.

Once you fall under the category, the next step is to speak to your family physician or a doctor so that the risk can be assessed. After this, your doctor will prescribe the medical marijuana as they see fit in its ability to control or reduce the symptoms of your condition. Once approved, you are then given a card. With this card, you are now eligible to use medical marijuana as a means of coping with your sickness or symptoms.

In terms of getting the cannabis, there are a variety of ways. Firstly, you can grow your own up a certain amount, depending on what city you live in. For example, Santa Barbara does not have a lot of medical marijuana dispensaries so they encourage card-carrying patients to grow theirs.

The second way to get it is to visit a dispensary in your city in which you can purchase amounts of medical marijuana and other cannabis paraphernalia.

Thirdly, you can have it right at your doorsteps by using a registered delivery service and finally there is always the option of buying medical marijuana online.

Medical Marijuana for Treating Bipolar Disorder

Medical Marijuana for Treating Bipolar Disorder

Medical Marijuana for Treating Bipolar Disorder

Medical marijuana is often used to address high levels of pain in different kinds of illnesses and for patients with serious problems like cancer and other such problems. However, recent evidence suggests that medical marijuana can be used to treat neurological disorders as well. Research conducted by several institutions has shown that medical marijuana has a positive effect on patients suffering from depression, anxiety disorders and other problems. It can also be used to treat bipolar disorders.

What is Bipolar Disorder?

Bipolar disorder is when you alternate between extreme depressive phases and elation without warning. It affects your energy levels, mood, and your activity levels to an extent that day-to-day tasks can become very difficult. This disorder shouldn’t be taken lightly. In many cases, people just dismiss it as being moody and don’t take steps to treat it. That can harm your health and well-being, personal life, and your professional life as well.

What is Bipolar Disorder

Does Medical Marijuana Help?

 

There’s considerable debate about this, but there has been enough positive response from research participants to consider medical marijuana a valid option for treatment. This plant influences the body’s endocannabinoid system. This particular system is present in all mammals and is involved in processes like pain sensation, mood, appetite, and memory. It also mediates the effect of cannabis like marijuana.

Does Medical Marijuana help

According to researchers, the THC and CBD cannabinoids found in medical marijuana can stabilize your mood and address the symptoms of bipolar disorder. THC can, under the right dosage and circumstances, have an antidepressant and anti-anxiety effect on patients. CBD has similar effects as well. There is potential here and researchers are busy trying to understand how to utilize it safely.

RSO and CO2 Extractions For Dabbing


icon  27 Jan, 2016  /  icon  3        Author: Support Pot Valet

 

RSO and CO2 Extractions For Dabbing

Dabbing is a method through which people medicate themselves with cannabis concentrates. PotValet is committed to offer only the safest and cleanest concentrates. The oils for dabbing are obtained through numerous extraction methods, giving the dabs different names such as BHO (butane hash oil), rosin, CO2 oil, budder and wax. All of these products are powerful medicines for those dealing with chronic pain and nausea.

RSO and CO2 Extractions For Dabbing

You have probably heard some concerns regarding dabbing. While the process itself is not at all dangerous, some extraction methods may carry the potential to harm the consumer. For example, chemical contaminants like butane may have some hazardous consequences. PotValet offers the best concentrates, which are only RSO (Rick Simpson Oil) and CO2 based. Let’s see what each of these extraction methods has to offer.

The RSO (Rick Simpson Oil) Extraction

The RSO extraction method is preferred to the one of water or alcohol. It involves the use of naphthalene and it is prepared with the intent of delivering high amounts of 100% bioavailable THC that will fight cancers and other severe illnesses. This is why the RSO extraction is preferred amongst those who suffer from serious diseases. It should be noted that traditional RSO is a high THC product.

The RSO (Rick Simpson Oil) Extraction

The CO2 Extraction Method

This method used carbon dioxide under extreme pressure. The result is the separation of cannabinoids from the plant. More than this, the CO2 extraction decarboxylates the cannabis completely, meaning that anything obtained is 100% bioavailable and can be consumed in any way – eaten, smoked or vaped. It doesn’t matter how you consume this concentrated, it will be super effective.
The RSO and CO2 extractions are preferred by PotValet because they offer better results than the water or alcohol extractions. As said earlier, the THC obtained after such extractions is more effective and more bioavailable than the one obtained through other methods.

How Does Dabbing Work?


icon  23 Jan, 2016  /  icon  1        Author: Support Pot Valet

How Does Dabbing Work?

In case you are somehow involved with cannabis, whether medically, recreationally or from a business point of view, then you have probably heard about “dabbing”. It’s been over a decade since this method of consumption has been around, but the onset of more progressive extraction methods has brought on more cannabis concentrates, making dabbing more popular than ever.

Medical Benefits of Dabbing

A dab is a dose of cannabis concentrate. The dabbing method involves heating the concentrate on a hot surface and then inhaling it through a dab ring. The dabs are obtained by extracting cannabinoids, including THC, with a solvent, which is usually butane or carbon dioxide. The final result is a sticky oil that is commonly known as shatter, wax, budder or BHO (butane hash oil). The good news for some is that there is the possibility of extracting only the THC, which is the really medicine in marijuana.

The Medical Benefits of Dabbing

Concentrates are so beneficial because they give the patient a powerful dose of the medicine. Those who suffer from chronic pain or nausea have reported that dabbing gave them immediate relief. The quantity of flowers to be smoked in order to get the same results would not be possible in patients who really need the medicine.

Medical Benefits of Dabbing

Are There Any Dangers?

The answer to this question is yes. Making extracts can be very dangerous if not controlled in a professional environment. Professional extractors shy away from the precarious “open” extraction method that can be conducted at home. They opt for the “closed” extraction method, which is safer, done in professional environments, with sophisticated equipment. More than this, there are many other extraction methods available. For example, the CO2 or the ice-water extraction; these are much safer and reduce the possibility of an explosion.

Medical Benefits of Dabbing

While dabbing may be in an awkward phase at the moment, there are many advantages associated with this method. All in all, cannabis concentrates have a lot to offer patients and cannabis consumers. Dabbing is just one ingenious method amongst others.

The Top 3 Most Popular Uses For Medical Marijuana


icon  20 Jan, 2016  /  icon  2        Author: Support Pot Valet

The Top 3 Most Popular Uses For Medical Marijuana

At this point, only 6% of medical studies about marijuana are analyzing its medicinal properties. It seems there are at least 2 active chemicals with medicinal applications in this plant. These chemicals are cannabidiol (CBD) and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). While CBD impacts the brain without the high, the THC provides the high and pain relief, plus other properties. With that being said, let’s have a look at the top 3 most popular uses for medical marijuana.

Uses For Medical Marijuana

Marijuana Can Be Used to Treat Glaucoma

The eye disease known as glaucoma causes the pressure in the eyeball to increase. This damages the optic nerve and ends up in loss of vision. Marijuana can be used to treat and prevent glaucoma, as it decreases the pressure in the eye, according to the National Eye Institute. The effects of marijuana slow down the way the disease is progressing, and in the end, it may prevent blindness.

Uses For Medical Marijuana

Marijuana Helps Control Epileptic Seizures

A study conducted in 2013 shows that marijuana can prevent the seizures epilepsy is causing. Robert J. DeLorenzo from the Virginia Commonwealth University experienced with marijuana on epileptic rats. The results of the study showed that marijuana can rid the rats of seizures for about 10 hours. Like THC, other active chemicals in marijuana, bind to the brain cells that control excitability and regulate relaxation.

Uses For Medical Marijuana

Marijuana Stops Cancer From Spreading

The researchers at California Pacific Medical Center in San Francisco informed in 2007 that CBD prevent cancers from spreading. The study was published in the Molecular Cancer Therapeutics journal, and explained how cannabidiol turns off a gene known as Id-1. Cancer is triggered by the fact that cancer cells make more copies of this gene than of non-cancerous cells, and this way the cancerous cells spread through the entire body. The scientists studied breast cancer cells in the lab, which after being treated with cannabidiol, had lower Id-1 expression and were less aggressive spreaders.

Is Smoking Marijuana Bad for Your Lungs


icon  18 Jan, 2016  /  icon  3        Author: Support Pot Valet

Is Smoking Marijuana Bad for Your Lungs?

In spite of all the health benefits medical marijuana has to offer us, scientists and medical professionals have always wondered if smoking marijuana will damage our lungs. After all, we know for sure that smoking in general (cigarettes or tobacco) can have a negative impact over the lungs; so perhaps the smoke of marijuana also does. However, according to a study conducted at Emory University, this may not be the case.

Marijuana

A NHANES (National Health and Nutrition Examination Surveys) cross sectional-analysis discovered that adults between 18 and 59 years old, who smoked one joint (a marijuana cigarette) a day, were able to exhale the same FEV1 (forced expiratory volume, also known as the expiratory volume of air), in one second. Spirometry, which measures a person’s ability to exhale, is the method through which doctors diagnose respiratory illnesses that impair lung function. It was the method applied to the subjects involved in the NHANES study.

Marijuana smokers who smoked more than one joint a day were more likely to develop minor symptoms that were similar to those of bronchitis. These symptoms were a cough and a sore throat. These symptoms seemed to be from very minimal to non-existent, and appeared less often, in subjects who used vaporizers instead of joints.

Marijuana

Vaporizers are used by many marijuana smokers. They heat the plant up just enough for it to release the active chemicals. This means the plant doesn’t need to be combusted. This means it wasn’t the marijuana causing the minor symptoms, but more so the papers used by the subjects to roll their joints.

The current studies confirm what previous studies have proven. In a study performed in 2012, scientists identified that persons who smoked weed each day, for 7 years, experienced absolutely no adverse effects in their pulmonary function. Another study from 2013, conducted by Donald P. Tashkin from the Division of Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine at the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA found out that habitual use of marijuana doesn’t lead to abnormalities in lung function.

Marijuana

More studies will continue as marijuana and medical marijuana are becoming ever so increasingly popular. If you have any questions about getting access to medical marijuana, contact our team for help today.
