HOW TO MAKE QUITE POSSIBLY - THE BEST MARIJUANA BROWNIES IN THE COUNTRY
Cooking with cannabis - the best recipes know to modern man
"When making ‘marijuana edibles’, you don’t just throw the marijuana buds into the food and chow down, believe it or not. The THC, the main active ingredient in most marijuana, must first be extracted into a butter or an oil mixture and then added or cooked with the food."
At every Marijuana show, Marijuana Brownies are hands-down, the most popular form of edible
Oral consumption of Marijuana is one effective way to medicate with your favorite type of medical cannabis while enjoying a delightful culinary experience. You might think of eating weed laced brownies as a delicious, sinful activity ,but amazingly, the science says otherwise. Read on, and you shall find ample rationale that will remove any guilt relating to the consumption of tasty Marijuana Edibles.
The strange thing about some strains of Marijuana is that it has been shown to be effective to control extreme weight gain and loss. Obviously, a case of the brownie munchies is going to up the calorie count, but the effect of Cannabis for many people is to stop worrying so much about food. Overall, obese people's mental biochemical condition - that causes food cravings - can be balanced with weed because the active ingredients of medical marijuana, like THC and other cannabinoids, tent to balance the receptors that control appetite.
"Obesity is one of the highest preventable causes of morbidity and mortality in the developed world. It has been well known for a long time that exposure to cannabis produces an increase of appetite (a phenomenon referred to as the 'munchies').
This phenomenon led to an exploration of the role of the endocannabinoid system in the regulation of obesity and associated metabolic syndrome. This effort subsequently led to the development of a successful therapeutic approach for obesity that consisted of blocking the cannabinoid CB1 receptors using ligands such as Rimonabant in order to produce weight loss and improve metabolic profile." - Translational Addiction Research Laboratory

TRICKS AND TIPS
Don't overbake. Overbaking and higher temperature cooking will denature the active ingredients in the cannabis oil, lower the nutritional value and reduce the flavor. You can buy a thermometer to double check your oven temperature. Few people like burned chocolate baked goods.
Let brownies cool completely. Many people think putting brownies in the fridge overnight is best.
Store properly. Use airtight containers and store at room temperature. Label your marijuana-infused brownies clearly -so there is a reduced chance of accidental consumption. Definitely keep these MMJ goodies away from access by children.
THE REAL SECRET - HOW TO PICK INGREDIENTS
Maximize the Nutritional, Taste and Medication Value
It is very important that you choose the type of Cannabis that suits you best. There are three basic types of marijuana and oil. For parties, an assortment of brownies would be a good idea.
High THC - gets you high and is medicinal. Side effects can include paranoia and anxiety
Balanced THC and CBD - gets you high, but effects tend to be more cerebral and uplifting, side effects are much less as CBD moderates the psychosis that THC can bring.
High CBD - does not get you high, but is relaxing, kills pain, reduces cramping, seizures, spasms and a host of other blessings.
Use the tastiest organic ingredients you can find. Never use white sugar. Whole wheat flour doesn't taste the best and is overrated. We say you don't need to be perfect and can use a lightly processed white flour and cut it 50% with organic oat, rye, buckwheat, rice flour. This combo is healthy, tasty and hearty. You can play with the ratios and ingredients to make the recipe your own.
Don't eat regular eggs. The condition of the laying hens and the environment found in massive poultry operations is absolutely disgusting. The hens are pumped full of antibiotics and other shit to keep them alive and laying frequently. So buy organic eggs. You can tell if they are really organic because the yolk does not easily break, it's bigger and the color is more orange than yellow. Also, stay away from chickens fed with fish parts. These so called Omega-3 eggs taste awful; there is a residual taste of fish in the eggs.
Use natural raw chocolate or liquor. You can't bake the finest brownies without using the best chocolate.
Pick-up raw organic cane sugar at your local health food store. The less the processing, the more nutrients that are retained.
"Coarse sugars like Sugar in the Raw require more moisture to dissolve, resulting in drier doughs and more difficulty achieving a "creaming" effect in recipes. To help raw sugar behave more like white table sugar, use a food processor to grind it down to a finer consistency or adding a few teaspoons of water to replace the lost moisture in recipes. If you're using it in coffee or tea, stir more thoroughly to allow the sugar to dissolve." - Pastry Chef Nicole Weston
Unpasteurized if you can get it. Don't use old butter or oils because they can go rancid.
Butter is definitely recommended as opposed to Vegetable Cooking Oil. The top naturopaths now recommend butter while MD's now recommend vegetable oils. Some 30 years ago, many naturopaths were recommending vegetable oils and MD's butter. What a nutty world.

Choose a sea-salt that has some potassium, calcium and magnesium values in it. Tour de France cyclists use sea salt, while Wal-mart shoppers prefer to be depleted of essential minerals.
Why buy artificial crap when you can get the real stuff.
CANNABIS OIL TYPES
Cannabis Oil It’s straight up cannabis butter, except its in liquid oil form. Cannabis oil is aromatic and is light to dark green or brown color. Cannabis oils usually have a veggie-nut taste which varies depending on the parent. Oils can be higher in either THC or CBD or balanced (1:1).
Hemp Oil is made by pressing hemp seeds and extracting the oil. Cold pressed hempseed oil is green with a nutty flavor. Refined hemp oil is colorless, tasteless and void of most nutrients and has very little THC. Seeds are cleaned before the oil is pressed.
Butane Hash Oil (BHO) is pretty popular because it is simple to make and is very potent. BHO is a solvent oil, similar to CO2 oil and alcohol-oil extractions. BHO is commonly known as Honey Oil because it is sticky and light amber color. Warning: Butane is extremely flammable and has fumes can easily ignite.
CO2 Oil is produced using carbon dioxide (CO2) extraction and it is advertised to make the purest of oils This method retains more terpenes and cannabinoids yielding a full-flavor, full-potency oil that can be smoked, vaporized or consumed orally. CO2 extraction is considered a green solvent, as opposed to petroleum derived solvents like butane.
Rick Simpson Oil (RSO) is generally dark amber in color and tar-like.
Cannabidiol Oil (CBD Oil) is basically any oil where cannabidiol is the primary active ingredient. Cannabidiol oils don’t contain THC in large quantity. It is always best to have a cannabinoid profile (lab test), that shows the exact amount of THC, CBD and others.
Tinctures Tinctures (ethanol-alcohol extracts) were the most common preparation of medical marijuana in the United States before prohibition in 1937. A dose consists of a few drops placed under the tongue, the tincture is then absorbed directly into the bloodstream. Tinctures can be used in Cannabis Cooking as well, just add it to the butter or oil in the recipe. .
