Your Guide to the Ultimate Cannabis-Infused Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is here, and you can’t wait to stuff your face with food, watch football, spend time with loved ones, and wash tons of dirty dishes.

Okay, forget the dishes part. Nobody likes doing those.

But with a cannabis-infused Thanksgiving dinner, you can make every aspect of this holiday even more enjoyable.

 Of course, you’ll need to check with your dinner guests first to make sure they’re all down to get high off your food. Once you’ve got the green light, use these simple recipes to make your Thanksgiving meal one for the books!

Cannabutter: An Essential Ingredient!
Thanksgiving wouldn’t be Thanksgiving without copious amounts of butter. Switch out that regular butter with cannabutter, and you can easily transform most meals into truly “green cuisine.”

Use this simple cannabutter recipe to get started.

CAUTION! The amount of cannabis suggested in the recipe is just that – a suggestion! You’ll need to take everyone’s tolerance level into account when deciding how strong to make the butter.

PRO TIP: Prepare the cannabutter a few days before the big meal, and eat a little bit to gauge its potency. That way, you’ll have time to adjust the recipe if you need to.

Canna-Basted Turkey

Now that you have your cannabutter, you can use it to baste the main dish: your turkey!

If you need a turkey recipe, try this one, compliments of Martha Stewart.

Don’t forget: when basting the turkey, be sure to work the cannabutter under the skin as well as on top of it. After the turkey has been in the oven for an hour, baste it every 30 minutes with the juices that have gathered at the bottom of the pan.

Cannabis-Infused Garlic Mashed Potatoes
(Adapted from Taste of Home, serves 6 people)

Ingredients

  • 8 medium red potatoes (quartered)
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • 1 1/2 tbsp of regular butter
  • 1/2 tbsp of cannabutter (more or less, depending on potency)
  • 1/2 cup of fat-free milk, warmed
  • 3 cloves of garlic, finely minced
  • 1/4 cup of grated parmesan cheese

 

Put the potatoes in a large saucepan and cover with water. Bring to a boil. Lower heat, cover, and let simmer for about 15-20 minutes or until the potatoes are tender.

Drain the water. Add milk, butter, garlic, and salt. Use a potato masher or a fork to mash all the ingredients together. Mix in cheese.

Cannabis Cranberry and Orange Relish Sauce
(Adapted from Buzzfeed, serves 8)

Ingredients

  • 12 oz. bag of cranberries
  • 1 orange
  • 3/4 cup of agave (or sugar)
  • 1/4 cup of water
  • 1 tbsp of cannabutter (more or less, depending on potency)

Use a vegetable peeler to remove the zest from the orange, and cut it into thin slices. Put the zest slices, agave (or sugar), 1/2 the bag of cranberries, and the 1/4 cup of water into a pot. Cook over medium heat and stir for 5 minutes, or until the cranberries have all burst. Add the rest of the cranberries, along with chopped pieces of orange, and cook until the remaining cranberries have burst (about 2 minutes). Stir in the cannabutter and enjoy!

Cannabis and Veterans

Military veterans risked their lives to preserve the freedoms that we enjoy today.

Unfortunately, too many veterans arrive home still bearing the physical and psychological wounds that they suffered during combat.

These statistics are astounding and disturbing. There’s no question that more needs to be done to help our vets.

And that’s why now is the perfect time to discuss cannabis and veterans.

How Veterans are Normally Treated For PTSD
Veterans suffering from PTSD and chronic pain are usually prescribed these types of prescription drugs:

  • Antipsychotics
  • Tranquilizers
  • Antidepressants
  • Opioid painkillers

Unfortunately, these drug cocktails can create a “zombie-like” effect, leaving the patient feeling numb and detached from everyday life.

Opioid painkillers can also be potentially dangerous.

A TIME report found that veterans are twice as likely to be prescribed opioid painkillers if they are also being treated for PTSD.

These same veterans are also more likely to overdose on drugs and alcohol, exhibit violent behavior, and commit suicide – more so than veterans who aren’t given any painkillers at all.

Using Cannabis to Treat Veterans With PTSD
Why should veterans consider using medical cannabis? Well, cannabis can act as a:

  • Pain reliever
  • Sedative/sleep aid
  • Antidepressant (depending on the strain)
  • Anti-anxiety aid (depending on the strain)

It’s virtually impossible to overdose on cannabis, putting it in stark contrast with opioid painkillers. In fact, a study found that states with legal cannabis saw a 23% drop in opioid dependence and abuse, while opioid overdose hospitalizations dropped by 13%.

Veterans also claim that medical marijuana does more than just treat their symptoms; it allows them to be more active and engaged with life.
The V.A.’s Stance on Medical Cannabis
The Department of Veterans Affairs has a somewhat neutral stance on cannabis and veterans.

Because the V.A. is regulated by federal law, it can’t legally recommend medical marijuana to its patients or help those patients obtain marijuana.

However, the V.A. has said that they won’t take away the benefits of veterans who are enrolled in state medical marijuana programs. They also encourage patients to notify the V.A. if they’re using medical marijuana so that their health and progress can be monitored.

Groups That Bring Cannabis and Veterans Together
Since the V.A. can’t be a pro-cannabis resource, veterans themselves are filling in the gap. Organizations, such as the Veterans Cannabis Project, Grow For Vets, and the Weed for Warriors Project, have taken on the responsibility of educating veterans on the benefits of cannabis and helping veterans gain access to the medicine they need.

How Essence Cannabis Dispensary is Helping Vets
Essence offers a special discount to veterans, ranging from 10% to 30% off on all purchases, depending on the patient’s level of disability. You just need to bring in the proper qualifying paperwork, and Essence will take care of the rest.

If you’re a veteran who uses cannabis to manage your PTSD or chronic pain symptoms, we’d love to hear your story. Your experience could help inspire other patients to take the steps necessary to find relief, so please share your story with us on the Essence Facebook page!

Breast Cancer and Cannabis: What You Need to Know

This past May, celebrated actress and singer Olivia Newton-John announced that she had metastatic breast cancer.

Not long afterwards, Newton-John’s daughter, Chloe Rose Lattanzi, posted a message on Instagram saying that her mother would be using cannabis-derived CBD oil to help fight the disease.

But can marijuana really be used as an effective treatment for breast cancer?

Cannabis, Breast Cancer, and Chemotherapy

One of the primary tools in the fight against breast cancer is chemotherapy.

Unfortunately, chemotherapy comes with a host of negative side effects, including

  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Loss of appetite

Medical cannabis can make a huge difference here. It has anti-nausea and appetite-stimulating properties, both of which can counteract the side effects listed above.

Cannabis, Breast Cancer, and Neuropathic Pain

Another side effect of chemotherapy is nerve damage, which can result in neuropathy (nerve pain).

But neuropathy can also occur after surgery, radiation therapy, and in cases of advanced breast cancer.

Fortunately, cannabis is also a powerful pain reliever and can treat neuropathy without some of the more serious side effects associated with prescription painkillers.

Study Shows that Cannabis Could Prevent Breast Cancer From Spreading

During a preclinical study, researchers found that CBD (one of marijuana’s key cannabinoids) can switch off a gene that’s responsible for making breast cancer cells multiply.

The study was performed using cell cultures and animals. While the results are certainly encouraging, it’s still too soon to say definitively that CBD can prevent breast cancer from metastasizing in humans.

Combining Cannabis With Other Types of Breast Cancer Treatment

The internet is full of anecdotal evidence of people using cannabis oil to cure themselves of cancer.

Stories like these encourage researchers to continue studying cannabis’s medicinal properties. They also provide cancer patients a reason to be hopeful and optimistic, which is vital when battling this disease.

But some people are encouraging patients to stop chemotherapy or radiation therapy altogether in favor of alternative, “non-Western” treatment options such as eating a healthier diet, taking vitamin and nutrient supplements, practicing meditation/yoga, and, of course, consuming cannabis.

Choosing the right kind of cancer treatment is an important, life-changing decision as well as a personal one. You should absolutely consult with your doctor, but ultimately, the decision is yours to make.

That being said, it doesn’t have to be about “Western versus alternative medicine.”

You can use both approaches – like the patients in this SF Weekly article.

According to the story, 26 people with stage 4 cancer used a special type of cannabis oil (Rick Simpson Oil) in conjunction with traditional cancer treatment regimens.

At the time the article was written, all but one of the patients had survived their cancer – a 96 percent survival rate.

Again, anecdotal evidence isn’t the same as hard, scientific data. But cannabis can still be a viable treatment option for breast cancer patients, even if it’s just being used to treat chemotherapy side effects and cancer symptoms. Most importantly, it can offer patients the relief and hope necessary to continue working towards a future that’s cancer-free.

Healthy Eating and Cannabis

You throw open your fridge and start tossing out all the junk food. It’s time to make way for the new, healthier version of “you.”

But when you discover a half-eaten pot brownie in the back of the fridge, you feel torn. You love cannabis, but the amount of sugar in that brownie is a big no-no.

Why can’t you have the best of both worlds? Why can’t you make healthy eating AND cannabis a part of your daily life?

Well, guess what? You can.

Keep reading to learn how to do just that.

Why Make Cannabis a Part of Your Diet?

The medical benefits of cannabis are well-documented, which brings to mind this old saying: “Food is medicine.”

Food does more than just give us energy. The right kind of foods can help us ward off disease. It’s the ultimate preventative medicine, and when you consider cannabis’s role as an

● Antioxidant
● Anti-inflammatory
● Antidepressant
● Anxiety reliever
● Neuroprotectant

…then you can understand why Dr. Allan Frankel makes the bold claim that cannabinoids are essential nutrients. For him, healthy eating and cannabis go hand in hand!

Where Can You Find Healthy Cannabis Edibles?

Now that brownies, cookies, candies, and other sugary treats are off the menu (except on cheat days, of course), it’s time to find healthier fare.

Cannabis-infused honey and cooking oil are great items to start with.

You can add the honey to your tea, oatmeal, cereal, smoothies, pancakes (healthy pancakes, of course), or you can drizzle it on fruit.

Marijuana-infused cooking oil can be used for stir-fry, baking, or as a condiment on pasta, salads, and bread.

A Quick, Convenient Way to Eat Healthy

It takes time to prepare a healthy meal. If you’ve had a long stressful day at work or school, you may be tempted to order fast food or toss a frozen dinner in the microwave.

But if you want to avoid the temptation of processed junk food, try the following:

● On your day off, make a big meal with enough leftovers for the entire week. That way, you don’t have to cook every day.

● If you run out of leftovers or just don’t have enough time to make that one big meal, try Foodie Fit. They prepare and deliver fresh, healthy meals for people who are too swamped to make dinner themselves. Plus, they’re open seven days a week!

Adding CBD to Your Workout Regimen

You’ve just finished a strenuous workout. Your muscles feel like hamburger meat. Maybe you’re feeling a little queasy or even full-on nauseous.

Sure, you can reach for those standard over-the-counter painkillers to help you through that discomfort.

But why not reach for medical cannabis instead?

Athletes and fitness buffs are beginning to add CBD products to their workout regimens. They’re enjoying many of the benefits that are associated with medical cannabis without even getting high.

Sounds like a good deal, right? Keep reading to find out how it works.

Why You Should Consider Ditching Those Over-The-Counter Painkillers

According to the New York Times, most people who work out regularly take ibuprofen to combat the pain they feel afterwards.

Unfortunately, the side effects of these anti-inflammatory drugs can be pretty brutal – things like gastrointestinal damage and colonic seepage. In some cases, they can even increase the amount of inflammation in your body.

How CBD Can Improve Your Workout Recovery

Cannabidiol (CBD) belongs to a class of chemical compounds known as cannabinoids, many of  which are found in the marijuana plant. Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is the most popular of the cannabinoids because it’s what makes people feel high.

That’s where THC and CBD part ways. CBD is non-psychoactive, meaning it won’t get you “stoned.” But it’s still a powerful cannabinoid!

Here are just some of the benefits you can enjoy if you add CBD to your workout regimen.

Analgesic

“No pain, no gain” goes the old saying, but too much of anything is never a good thing.

Luckily, CBD is an analgesic, so if you decide you’ve had enough pain for one day, the right dose can give you some much-needed relief.

Anti-inflammation

Post-exercise inflammation can be good for you; it’s how your body gets stronger and builds endurance. But too much inflammation can cause damage to your body.

In addition to getting rest and eating the right foods, try using CBD to help keep severe inflammation under control.

Appetite Suppressant

Cannabis is notorious for giving people “the munchies,” which is great if you’re trying to bulk up.

But if you want to get fit and lose some excess weight, know that CBD can actually have the opposite affect on your appetite, making it easier for you to eat only when your body needs the food.

Anti-insomnia

Exercise usually helps people sleep better at night, but excessive exercise can send your cortisol levels through the roof (cortisol is a stress hormone). Once that happens, falling asleep can be difficult.

CBD’s anti-insomnia properties can help calm you down and make it easier for you to get some shut-eye.

Neuroprotectant

Athletes who participate in contact sports, such as boxing or football, put themselves at regular risk of brain injury. That’s part of the reason why some football players are championing the use of CBD. In addition to relieving pain and inflammation, studies show that CBD can help protect brain matter in cases of stroke or injury.

If you’re interested in adding CBD to your workout regimen, Essence offers a wide selection of products for you to choose from. Feel free to give us a call or drop by one of Essence’s three locations if you have questions about how to find the right product.

And if you’ve used CBD in the past, please share your experiences on the Essence Facebook page!

Where to Use Cannabis in Las Vegas

 

You walk out of a Vegas dispensary with a bag of premium, top-shelf product under your arm. Good times are ahead!

Now comes the hard part: figuring out where you can consume that product.

Of course, if you’re a Las Vegas resident and have a home to call your own, this isn’t actually a problem.

But if you’re visiting from out of town, things can get tricky. Nevada laws are strict about where you can and can’t use cannabis in Las Vegas. If you break those laws, you could wind up facing a hefty fine.

To ensure that you’re able to enjoy your cannabis and obey local statutes at the same time, here’s a quick guide on where to use cannabis in Las Vegas.

Here’s a List of Places Where You Cannot Use Cannabis in Las Vegas

● Casinos
● Hotel Rooms
● Inside of a vehicle (moving or stationary)
● Anywhere in public

If you’re caught using cannabis in any of these places, you could pay a fine of up to $600.

Here’s a List of Places Where You Can Use Cannabis in Las Vegas

● A private residence
● A private residence
● A private residence
● A private…well, you get the idea.

Again, this really doesn’t affect Vegas residents, but it’s a different story for tourists who can’t even consume cannabis in their hotel rooms. Where are they supposed to go?

Obviously, the big elephant in the room is the fact that tourists are just ignoring the law and consuming cannabis anywhere they can get away with it.

But there’s no need for that. There is, in fact, a legal solution to this problem!

Here’s How Tourists Can Legally Use Cannabis In Las Vegas

Airbnb-style platforms have arrived on the scene to provide tourists with cannabis-friendly rental accommondations. If you’re looking for such a place, check out The Travel Joint!

What About Cannabis Lounges?

There’s been a lot of buzz in the news lately over whether or not cannabis lounges will open in Las Vegas.

In case you’re not familiar with the concept, a cannabis lounge would function just like a bar; it’d be a legal establishment where people can consume marijuana.

Here’s some good news: the Legislative Counsel Bureau recently stated that, according to state law, cannabis lounges could legally operate in Nevada as long as

● The patrons of the lounge are of legal age (21 years or older)
● No one inside the lounge possesses more than the legal limit of cannabis

But don’t get too excited just yet. It’ll be up to local governments to decide whether cannabis lounges will be allowed to operate. And for now, Clark County commissioners wants to hold off discussing the issue until December.

What do you think about the ban on marijuana consumption in public places? Should marijuana only be used in a private residence? Or should it be treated like alcohol – with designated places to consume it? Share your comments on the Essence Facebook page!

How Marijuana Affects Your Workout

Ever thought about hitting the pipe before hitting the gym?

Believe it or not, some athletes claim that cannabis and exercise are a winning combination. They say that marijuana gives them a boost of energy, helps them relax, relieve aches and pains, and alleviates the boredom of long-distance running.

Because of marijuana’s legal status, it’s difficult for researchers to study cannabis effects on workout routines. That being said, here’s what we do know:

A “Runner’s High” and a “Stoner’s High” May Have Something Common…

People who run long distances typically experience what is known as a “runner’s high” – that awesome, euphoric feeling that makes you feel like you can conquer the world.

Researchers used to believe that the runner’s high was caused by endorphins entering the brain. But they now know that endorphins aren’t actually able to cross the blood-brain barrier.

So if endorphins aren’t responsible for the runner’s high, what is?

That’s where the body’s endocannabinoid system comes in. It’s responsible for regulating your motor control, memory, appetite, mood, and sensations of pain.

Researchers found that people who exercise for 30 minutes have elevated levels of anandamide in their bloodstream. Anandamide is an endocannabinoid that’s linked to feelings of wellbeing and euphoria (the name comes from the Sanskrit word ananda which means “bliss”).

Marijuana as a Performance-Enhancing Drug?

The cannabinoids found in marijuana, such as THC and CBD, interact with your body’s endocannabinoid system, producing similar effects as anandamide. Therefore, it might be possible for an athlete to use cannabis to create an “artificial” runner’s high, allowing them to overcome physical and mental fatigue.

Cannabis also acts as a vasodilator, which is a fancy way of saying that it widens your arteries and allows more blood to flow to your muscles, giving them nutrients and preventing soreness.

The Downside of Combining Cannabis and Exercise

  • Cannabis affects your concentration and motor control, which is why driving while under the influence is against the law. This side affect can also affect your ability to do complicated exercise routines in a safe manner.
  • Cannabis can raise your blood pressure and accelerate your heart rate. If you’re at risk for coronary heart disease, using cannabis while exercising could make your condition worse.
  • Marijuana’s pain-blocking ability can actually work against you while exercising. Your body communicates with your brain through pain and discomfort, letting you know where your limits are. If marijuana is blocking some or all of that pain, it’s possible that you could injure yourself and not be fully aware of it.

If You’re Thinking About Combining Cannabis and Exercise…

  • Start with a low dose and a light workout – something straightforward and uncomplicated like jogging or yoga.
  • Experiment with sativa-dominant strains. You probably won’t get much mileage out of the indica strains – at least, not until “couch-sitting” becomes an official Olympic sport.
  • Check out this episode of The Cannabist to hear the story of Jenessa Lea. She overcame a debilitating disease and opioid dependency through a combination of cannabis, exercise, and diet.

What Cannabis Users Need to Know About Donating Blood

There’s a blood drive in your area!

You, being the model citizen that you are, have decided to stop by the drive and donate some of your blood. After all, it’s a great cause. Donating one pint of blood can save up to three lives.

Plus, they give you free juice, cookies, and a sticker. It’s win-win!

But as you’re about to head out the door, it suddenly hits you that you took multiple hits from your bong earlier today.

In fact, you’re about as regular a cannabis smoker as they come, and your blood is most likely chock full of THC. There’s no way they’re going to let you donate!

Right?

Actually, Cannabis Users Can Donate Blood

Nope, that’s not a misprint. Cannabis users can donate blood!

There’s no actual danger that a donor recipient can get a “contact high” from your marijuana-infused blood, so you’re in the clear!

Sound too good to be true?

Here’s What the American Red Cross Says About Cannabis and Donating Blood

In this handly little pamphlet, the American Red Cross states the following:

“While the Red Cross doesn’t encourage the use of controlled substances, marijuana or alcohol use does not necessarily disqualify you from giving blood as long as you are feeling well.”

Many other blood donation organizations have a similar policy. As long as you’re not sick, you’ll be permitted to donate.

However, if you show up at a donation site and you’re visibly intoxicated, you’ll likely be turned away.

If you know beforehand that there’s a blood drive scheduled in your area, try not to consume any pot until after you’ve donated blood.

How Long Does Cannabis Stay in Your Blood?

It depends on several factors such as:

  • Your metabolism
  • Your body mass index
  • The amount of marijuana you consume
  • How often you consume
  • The method of consumption (smoking, edibles, etc.)

If you don’t smoke that often, you can expect cannabis to stay in your blood up to two days after a single use. If you’re a regular smoker, expect it to remain in your system up to seven days.

Either way, you’re still in good shape to donate as long as you aren’t visibly high.

Other Requirements For Donating Blood

According to the Red Cross, you need to be:

  • Healthy enough to perform normal, daily activities
  • Be at least 17 years of age
  • Weigh at least 110 pounds

And that’s it!

In the wake of natural disasters, such as the recent Hurricane Harvey, there is almost always a huge need for emergency transfusions.

Unfortunately, many blood banks and scheduled blood drives in Texas had to close because of the hurricane, and now donations are being requested from all over the country.

If you’re a regular cannabis user, don’t let that dissuade you from donating blood. The American Red Cross and other organizations are absolutely fine with it, and you should be too!

Who knows? Your blood might just help save some lives!

To help you get started, here are the five top cannabis strains for Summer 2017!

1. Strawberry Lemonade

Nothing says summer like a glass of ice-cold strawberry lemonade. But what if you could pack that sweet, citrusy flavor into a marijuana strain?

Going to be spending a lot of time outdoors? Don’t leave home without your WiFi!

WiFi OG (also known as White Fire OG) connects you to the mood-lifting, creative high that you need to stay engaged with the outside world.

Once you get a hit of that berry-flavored euphoria, and the couch lock starts to kick in, you’ll see why it’s ranked among the top cannabis strains.

Be sure not to have anything else planned for the rest of the evening. Your date with Blueberry should be one of the last things on your schedule!
