If you've been to our shop, you might know I'm a tea drinker these days. I prefer using the loose-leaf mint to make mine, not only is it less expensive, it tastes great!
Recently, however, I've begun drinking fresh leaf "pot-tea" (LOL) in the evenings. YUM! I was blessed with some fresh leaf that I enjoy using in a smoothie, so I decided to try some in tea. I cut the leaves up and put it in the pan to boil on low for about 15 minutes and then let it steep for several more minutes. It smells like "grass" (more than Cannabis) and even tastes a bit like it, but oh my has it done wonders for making me drowsy and ready for bed well before the 2 a.m. when I usually crawl in! Why oh why did I wait until the end of the outdoor season to try this?!
Typically it is said that you need a fat to bind with the Cannabis for it to have any effect. That would be the effects of the THC that is being discussed. It is not a high effect that I am feeling when using this tea, it is a relaxed, warm, all-is-well feeling instead. I like it. I'll continue to do it as long as I can get fresh leaf to enjoy. I'm also going to try it with dry leaf that I know has been organically grown with no spray or chemical fertilizers.
I do know that adding a fat to the mixture will add the high effect, so if that's what you are after, you can add some cream, coconut oil, butter or any other naturally occurring fat to the mix for the THC to bind with. Blessings all, have a beautiful day!
Every week is a great week, but when it's your birthday it's even better! Now that I'm past the golden age of 50, only "the big ones" get celebrated with any noise, so every five years or so I'll have to share my birthday cake. Oops! That's not what I meant to say. As Kendra would tell you, "it's no good, you wouldn't want any!" Love that girl, she has become "quite the one" in the kitchen.
This week brought several calls from dispensaries in the area with orders, so that is always exciting! Cannabis LLC, in Springfield, Oregon, will be getting a nice variety pack on Monday. We have sure enjoyed our visits the times we've been there. Their clone selection was certainly the biggest one I've seen with a huge selection of different strains! Please be sure and check them out at 1936 Main St., Springfield, OR 97477 if you're in the area. You cannot miss the bright green trim, which can be helpful! It's difficult to spot us ... the City Councilmen and former editor of the newspaper drove by three times trying to find us, but I digress.
Kendra is working diligently on getting some face, skin, and deodorant products made. For the deodorant, we will offer both with and without wax since it's the end of summer. It does not travel well without wax ... and not 100% well even with wax, but it wears like a dream! It is all I have used for well over a year, and I am still using the same 4 ounce jar I bought and I still have a lot in it. Yes it is Cannabis infused, yes, that is important! Your skin is your largest organ and your lymph nodes are right there, saturate your body!
Speaking of saturating our bodies...
Our Suppositories are sure selling quickly in the dispensaries, have you tried them yet? Knock out! They really deliver a one-two, good night punch with a super easy wake up in the morning. They can also be used for daytime pain relief when made for day relief, so if that is a viable dosing option for you, use it. I just received an order for lots of them through one dispensary, so our supply will be low for a week or so. They are carefully made and cured for best results.
Our current salve is "the bomb" as always. I am just needing a volunteer to show me the math and leave me with notes so I can get the labels done properly. Help! It has great numbers, this much I know, including THC, CBD, and more.
It's bedtime for me! Yes, I used mine 15 minutes ago, goodnight!
I'm Rhea ... I own the place. My beautiful daughter Kendra and I opened Albany's Canna Kitchen & Research, LLC on 11/11/11. She grew up, married, and moved away ... life has continued and we've had to make a number of changes and adjustments to continue. I am very excited to be teaching people how to make life-changing, life-saving Smokeless Cannabis Remedies.
