5 Steps To Making A Non-Psychotropic Cannabis-Infused Strawberry Banana Smoothie

Posted on Categories RecipesLeave a commentBy
5 Steps To Making A Non-Psychotropic Cannabis-Infused Strawberry Banana Smoothie

Total time:
 Approx. 5 minutes or less depending on your blender strengthServings: 2-3Difficulty level: Beginner
Vegan and gluten free!

What You Will Need:

  • 7-10 raw cannabis leaves, freshly picked (within 2-3 days)
  • 1 cup original hemp milk
  • 1/4 cup of shelled hemp seed
  • 1 large frozen banana
  • 7 large frozen strawberries
  • 1 tablespoon of honey (optional)
  • Sprinkle coconut sugar on top at the end (optional)


strawberry banana smoothie

Steps To Making Cannabis Strawberry & Banana Juice As A Dietary Supplement


  1. Start by slicing up your frozen banana depending on your blender strength.
  2. Fill blender with 1 cup hemp milk.
  3. Add in the solid fruit and then top with cannabis leaves.
  4. Finish with hemp seed, honey, and/or coconut sugar (optional).
  5. Mix manually, in short spurts, being careful not to overheat the cannabis inside the blender (doing so will activate some of the plants cannabinoids).


The cannabis plant produces fresh leaves and buds that are a complete protein and a great natural source of healthy omega 3 and 6 fatty acids. It’s important to use fresh leaves and fresh buds, picked right off of a living plant (or properly fresh frozen). Old buds, cured for people to smoke or vaporize, are not suitable for creating a non-pyschotropic juice (eg. no high).


One large banana has over 400mg of potassium and 3 grams of fiber. On average, a banana also delivers more than 20% of your daily value of Vitamin C and B6. Bananas also strengthen the good flora in the gut and ease digestion. Bananas have also been linked with keeping blood pressure in check and boost the metabolism. It’s recommended that you allow your bananas to develop brown spots on the skin before consuming to allow the antioxidant count to reach its highest point.

strawberry banana smoothie
Strawberries are also high in potassium, lowering blood pressure and decreasing chances of strokes. Strawberries are antioxidant powerhouses linked to decreasing tumor growth and inflammation. The folate count makes them an ideal food choice for pregnant women and those suffering from depression.


One cup of hemp milk contains 3 grams of protein, 900mg Omega 3 ALA’s, and is lactose and cholesterol free.

Blend Slowly And Carefully; Do Not Overheat It

This process will require a healthy amount of blending. However, it is important that you are careful to blend the ingredients slowly, in spurts, so as not to overheat the cannabis leaves. Even a tiny bit of heat results in the raw cannabis further converting from THC-A (cannabinoid acid) to THC. Not a good thing if you want to stay sober after you consume your infused beverage.


What you want to do is keep the temperatures low, juice the whole cannabis plant, and in doing so, you will receive the full range of benefits that cannabinoids have to offer, engaging what is known as the entourage effect. The cannabis leaves and buds that the recipe calls for provide the body with much needed cannabinoid acids, specifically THC-A and CBD-A. These acids found in cannabis have been shown to help reduce or eliminate epileptic seizures, treat certain forms of cancer, and assist in the management of many other ailments.


Warning: Patients consuming beta-blockers that are wary about consuming too much potassium, may want to avoid a drink as high in potassium as this.

Non-Psychoactive Cannabis & Carrot Juice Recipe

Non-Psychoactive Cannabis & Carrot Juice Recipe

How to Make Non-Psychoactive Cannabis & Carrot Juice

Total time: Approx. 5 minutes or less depending on your blender strength

Servings: 2-3

Difficulty level: Beginner

Vegan and gluten free!

What You Will Need:

  • 7-10 raw cannabis leaves, freshly picked (within 2-3 days)
  • 2 cups coconut water
  • 2 cups chopped organic carrots
  • 1 slice of organic lemon, skin included, no seeds
  • thin slice of organic ginger, no skin
  • 6 ice cubes

cannabis and carrots

Steps To Making Cannabis & Carrot Juice As A Dietary Supplement

  1. Start by slicing carrots until you have about 2 cups worth.
  2. Cut one slice of lemon and remove any seeds.
  3. Remove skin from the outside of a small piece of fresh ginger.
  4. Cut a thin slice from this ginger and add it into the blender with the other ingredients (Note: You may want to grate the ginger if your blender is not strong enough to break it up evenly.)
  5. Fill blender with 2 cups coconut water.
  6. Add in the remaining solid ingredients.
  7. Mix manually (in spurts) being careful not to overheat the cannabis inside the blender.

The use of carrots (and especially carrot juice) as a therapeutic agent is an ancient practice. Carrots are rich with biotin, calcium, magnesium, potassium, phosphorus, organic sodium and more. However, many people do not know that most of these nutrients are concentrated just beneath the skin of a carrot, so try not to peel off its skin if you are looking to eat healthy. It’s recommended that you simply brush the carrot’s skin (with water) until the the dirt is cleaned off.

“Carrot juice can pull heavy metals from fatty tissue where they reside, bind them up, and discharge them from the system.” – American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, October 1985

Dr. William L Courtney gave me his personal recommendation for this juice, which is 10 parts carrot to one part cannabis (leaves and buds). After giving this a try a few times, I’d be inclined to agree. It’s the perfect drink for those who already love carrots in their soup, dipped in dressing, and diced into salads.


This process will require a good amount of blending. It’s important that you are careful to blend slowly, in spurts, so as not to overheat the cannabis leaves. Even a tiny bit of heat results in the raw cannabis further converting from THC-A (cannabinoid acid) to THC. Not a good thing if you want to stay sober after you consume your drink. What you want to do is keep the temperatures low, juice the whole cannabis plant, and in doing so, you will receive the full range of benefits that cannabinoids have to offer, engaging what is known as the entourage effect.

before and after

The cannabis leaves and buds called for in the recipe provide the body with much needed cannabinoid acids, specifically THC-A and CBD-A. These acids found in cannabis have been shown to help reduce or eliminate epileptic seizures, treat certain forms of cancer, and assist in the management of many other ailments.  In general, cannabis is a complete protein and a great natural source of healthy omega 3 and 6 fatty acids.


One obstacle patients may face when juicing cannabis with carrots is having to deal with the vast amounts of the fiber after mixing. This fiber creates a foam at the top of your drink that most some people may consider too thick to drink with ease. Regardless, if you can get past the unpleasant texture, studies show you may be doing your body justice. After all, juice derived from carrots contains more Vitamin A than nearly any other juice. Vitamin A helps the liver flush out toxins from the body, making this a great recipe for detoxing your body. In fact, according to the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition (October 1985), “carrot juice can pull heavy metals from fatty tissue where they reside, bind them up, and discharge them from the system.”

How To Make Cannabis Infused Sweet Potatoes That Are Vegan, Gluten-free

Posted on Categories RecipesLeave a commentBy
How To Make Cannabis Infused Sweet Potatoes That Are Vegan, Gluten-free
Total time: Approx. 1 hour
Servings: 3-4
Difficulty level: Easy
Vegan, gluten free, nuts optional

What You Will Need:

  • 2-3 medium to large sweet potatoes
  • 2 tbsp raw brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp shredded coconut (optional)
  • 3 tbsp infused coconut oil
  • ¼ cup maple syrup or agave nectar
  • 1/3 cup chopped walnuts or pecans

Infused Sweet Potatoes Recipe:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a large saucepan, cover sweet potatoes with water.  Bring to a boil, and then reduce heat and simmer, covered, until tender (25-30 minutes.)
  3. Strain and then allow to cool.  Once cooled, peel and dice potatoes.
  4. Spray an 8×8 baking pan with non stick spray and arrange the diced potatoes evenly.
  5. In a small saucepan, blend coconut oil, syrup, brown sugar, and shredded coconut over low heat, stirring constantly until evenly blended. Approximately 3-5 minutes.
  6. Pour mixture over sweet potatoes and then coat with nuts, if desired.
  7. Bake 5-7 minutes at 300 degrees.  Serve warm.


sweet potatoes

Cannabis-Infused Sweet Potatoes: The Final Outcome

It can be hard to believe sweet potatoes are so healthy when they taste so delicious.  While they have more natural sugar than a regular potato, sweet potatoes are more nutrient-dense and contain less calories.  Beta-carotene is responsible for the orange color of sweet potatoes and converts into Vitamin A in the body; a medium size spud gives you more than 400% of your daily value.  For this reason, infusing sweet potatoes with cannabis gives you an even bigger edge on your natural vitamin intake for the day.


If you are serving diabetics, or simply wish to use a healthier syrup, consider using coconut nectar. Coconut nectar is one of the lowest glycemic options available, if not the lowest.  Either way, this dish is sure to be a big hit over the holidays.

How To Make Cannabis Infused Pumpkin Seeds

Posted on Categories RecipesLeave a commentBy
How To Make Cannabis Infused Pumpkin Seeds
With Thanksgiving just around the corner, it is time to start deciding what recipes you plan to make. For the perfect Thanksgiving appetizer, medicated pumpkin seeds are a light, healthy, and discreet option that won’t spoil your dinner. Subtle snacks that don’t involve a lot of prep time and will last in your pocket, easy to munch on all day long provide you with the most freedom. Pumpkin seeds are a rich source of fiber, protein, and minerals making them an excellent choice for medicating.

How To Make Infused Pumpkin Seeds This Thanksgiving

When deciding what seasoning to use on your pumpkin seeds, you really can’t go wrong as long as you select flavors that you love and I can teach you how to go in a couple different directions.

  • Total Time: 1 hour
  • 5-6 servings
  • Difficulty: easy

Infused Sugar-and-Cinnamon Seeds

What you need:

  • 2 cup unshelled or ¾ cup shelled raw pumpkin seeds
  • 4 tablespoons medicated coconut oil
  • 1 1/2  brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoons sugar of your choice (I use blonde coconut sugar)

Infused Garlic Salt Seeds

What you need:

  • 2 cups unshelled or ¾ cup shelled raw pumpkin seeds
  • 3 tablespoons medicated coconut oil
  • 4 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce or (Annie’s vegan Worcestershire sauce)
  • ¾ teaspoon sea salt
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder

Directions For Making Either Flavor:

  1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celsius (355 degrees Fahrenheit)
  2. Combine the liquid medicated coconut oil and all the spices in a small bowl. Stir until evenly mixed and then add pumpkin seeds.
  3. raw seedsToss seeds in the oil spice mixture. Make sure to coat each seed completely and then place them in a single layer on a baking sheet. (I put down a layer of parchment paper to save myself a messy clean-up later.)
  4. Every fifteen minutes, remove the baking sheet from the oven and stir the seeds around. You’ll want to continue this pattern until the seeds have lightly browned.

The longer they are cooked, the more cannabinoids will boil away and the higher the chance of overcooking the seeds, so watch carefully and only cook until lightly browned.


Allow to cool and enjoy! Store in an airtight container in a cool, dark place to extend their life.

Infused Pumpkin Seeds: Versatile and Fast Acting

If you wish to medicate with shelled pumpkin seeds, you’ll have to suck on them for awhile before chewing them. This allows to you to ingest the cannabis oil sublingually, affording a quicker and more dependable onset time, as well as limiting the possibility of over-medicating.


Pumpkin seeds carry the highest amount of tryptophan, one of the nine essential amino acids, of all foods with110mg in each 1/4 cup. Tryptophan is most commonly known for being in turkey, and helps the body produceserotonin, a neurotransmitter chemical which helps regulate mood and healthy sleep patterns.


This is ideal for Thanksgiving, when you want something easy to snack on that won’t fill you up. As always, start low and go slow. I recommend using medicated coconut oil because you are aiding your heart health and digesting two antibacterial super foods: cannabis and coconut oil.


Don’t be afraid to play with the seasonings or experiment with this recipe year round.  It’s hard to find a healthier seed that tastes so good.  This Thanksgiving I am thankful for medicated pumpkin seeds!

How-To Make A Cannabis Infused Blueberry Banana Smoothie

Posted on Categories RecipesLeave a commentBy
How-To Make A Cannabis Infused Blueberry Banana Smoothie
According to Dr. Courtney, the pioneer for juicing cannabis and founder of Origins of Cannabis International Foundation, cannabis is a dietary essential. When we decarboxylate or heat the cannabinoids found in cannabis, we lose ~99% of the health benefits when the THC-A is converted into THC. The THC-A found in raw cannabis is filled with essential amino acids and other astounding properties that directly influence our immune systems, tapping into a wide range of therapeutic and reparative benefits.

Raw Cannabis, Blueberry Banana Smoothie Recipe

For today’s medical marijuana how-to article, I am sharing my personal blueberry banana smoothie recipe. Adding fruits to smoothies helps cover the bitter taste of cannabis (it has a very sharp taste similar to a wheat grass shot) and boosts the smoothies nutrient levels. As you may or may now know, most fruits are naturally low in fat, sodium, and calories. None have cholesterol.


Consult your caregiver or physician about your sugar intake before making this recipe, especially if you suffer from cancer or any other sugar-feeding disease.


As a general rule of thumb when cooking with cannabis, the fresher the leaves, the better. If you have access to live plants, make the juice fresh each morning. Just be sure to consume the leaves within three days of being cut and cleaned. You also only want to use flowers when the glands are clear and turning cloudy/milky white, but not yet amber.


Be sure to rinse your leaves with water to remove any excess residue before getting started. Treat the leaves as you would any other vegetable by storing them in the fridge when not in use, to extend their shelf-life.


Ingredients You Will Need: recipe

  • 1 frozen banana
  • 2 large frozen strawberries
  • 1 cup frozen whole blueberries
  • 1/2 cup regular almond milk
  • 1/2 cup coconut water
  • 1 tbsp chia seed
  • 1 tbsp flax seed
  • 1 tbsp hemp seed
  • 15 fresh cannabis leaves and 2-4 2in. fresh cannabis buds (If you do not have access to this much cannabis, feel free to add spinach in replacement.)

Editor’s Note: I aim to use fifteen fresh leaves a day plus two to four 2in fresh raw buds, the recommended dose for the chronically ill patients by Dr. Courtney. I suffer from Late Stage Lyme disease, a chronic autoimmune disorder. If Lyme disease is not caught early, many people suffer long term symptoms. Juicing cannabis has helped me tremendously to keep my symptoms at bay. My doctors have approved my consumption of natural sugars, however, it is advised that consult your doctor before making this at home, especially if you have any health concerns.

Tips To Making A Delicious Cannabis Smoothie


Frozen fruit isn’t mandatory. I prefer to use frozen fruit to help the drink stay colder longer. You may want to cut up the banana before freezing it if you make your own. Depending on the strength of your blender, chopping up a whole banana can become troublesome and you’ll end up with a couple surprise banana chunks. A Blendtec is strong enough so I did not cut mine up, but it is not necessary for you to purchase that blender! It just may take longer to get the consistency you desire.


I recommended drinking the smoothie within fifteen minutes or less because chia gels, thickening the material of your smoothie. Depending on your tastes, you can always omit the chia or wait until it gels up, if you prefer it that way.


The hemp and flax seed both add a rich, nutty flavor. If you wish to cut back on those, know you are losing protein and healthy omegas. You can train your taste buds so don’t be afraid to go outside your comfort zone or ramp up slowly. Another option you may want to consider is almond milk, as this will increase the creaminess of the smoothie more than half a cup of almond milk + half a cup of coconut water (as called out in the recipe above).


The motor of the blender does release some heat, so you will want to keep the cannabis as far away from the blade as possible, so as not to decarboxylate the cannabinoids, increasing the psychoactive effects while decreasing the amount of THC-A present. I blend all the other ingredients first, only adding the cannabisafter all other ingredients are completely blended. Blend the cannabis on pulse until the smoothie is your desired thickness.


Dr. Sulak, a well known MD in Maine that treats thousands of patients with cannabis, suggested that people should consider only blending smoothies using quick pulses, to avoid creating heat from the friction.

Final Thoughts And Friendly Advice

This cannabis-infused blueberry banana smoothie recipe will make ~21 ounces and comes to ~422 calories.  Until the USDA considers cannabis a food, we are unable to give the exact calorie count. The calorie count listed includes all of the ingredients except cannabis.


The great thing about making cannabis-infused smoothies is that there is no one, perfect way to do it. Also, you really can not mess up too bad. Even if you don’t like the flavor of your infused creation, you can always add more of something sweet (like strawberries) to the mix and re-blend with a few quick pulses.

Cannabis Kitchen: Coo-Coo For Coconut Oil

Posted on Categories RecipesLeave a commentBy
Cannabis Kitchen: Coo-Coo For Coconut Oil

Coconut oil is a vegan “super food.” It is beneficial whether it used orally or topically, and can even be used as a daily detox. Coconut oil is comprised of 90% saturated fat, which once gave it a bad reputation. However, unlike the saturated fat found in red meat, this oil in no way clogs our arteries and provides the body with a readily available source of healthy energy.

In fact, this high fat content is the key when using coconut oil to infuse edibles, topicals, and more.Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is a fat-soluble molecule and must bind to fat in order to be absorbed into the oil. So, the more fat, the more room for cannabinoids overall. When compared to other butters and oils, infused coconut oil offers you the biggest bang for your buck for potency and nutrition.


Coconut oil has anti-bacterial properties and is in the diets of the most heart-healthy populations in the world. As a ketogenic rich food, it can directly decrease seizures in epileptic children and has shown signs of helping with symptom management for Alzheimer’s patients.


When you consider the natural benefits of coconut oil, cooking cannabis into it only increases the medicinal advantages: cannabis has demonstrated a tremendous ability to reduce seizure occurrences in epileptic children, and it has also shown positive results in treating Alzheimer’s Disease.

What Materials Do I Need To Make Cannabis-Infused Coconut Oil?

coconut oilFirst, you will want to choose your preferred type of coconut oil. If you like thecoconut flavor and aroma, choose unrefined virgin coconut oil. Go with the refined oil if you want a more mellow taste.


Your next choice will be determining what strain(s) of cannabis you plan to cook into your oil. You’ll need to decide if you want an Indica, Sativa, or Hybrid strain. Of course, it always helps to know how different strains affect you.


It’s advised that you NEVER use cannabis if you don’t trust the source or if it hasn’t been lab-tested for safety. The important part is not to ingest any impurities like mold, bugs, or pesticides.

“I will suggest that any first time cook would want to add, at minimum, a quarter of high quality flower (15%+ THC) into two cups liquid oil.”


Deciding how much cannabis to cook in your oil depends on how much and what strength oil you would like to make. Don’t forget to consider how much oil will be needed in your recipe and how strong you want each bite or serving to be! This will require some math on your part.


I will suggest that any first time cook would want to add, at minimum, a quarter of high quality flower (15%+ THC) into two cups liquid oil – use at least one ounce if the bud has a lot of seeds or a low trichome count. Keep in mind this will create low doses – you want to make sure you are giving yourself a dose with which you’ll feel the effects of your coconut oil, but wont be incapacitated by it.

How Do You Make Cannabis-Infused Coconut Oil?

magical butterIf you plan to make medicated oil regularly, consider investing in a Magical Butter product. My partner and I chose to use the Magical Butter 2 when making our medicated coconut oil we use in our vegan edibles at CANServe – it is such a time saver! Of course you can also infuse your coconut oil using a stovetop and a double broiler, in which case you won’t ever need to turn the dial past three.


Once you have warmed your liquid coconut oil, add your ground up plant matter. There is no need to add seeds, but stems are welcome!

“The goal is to keep the oil just below a simmer with regular stirring to prevent any burning at the bottom of the pan.”

It is vital to remember that THC activates as low as 160 degrees F, and it starts breaking down at 350 degrees F, which is also the smoking point of coconut oil. Once the THC begins breaking down, the effects are less noticeable and you are receiving less benefits.


After about an hour, you should notice the oil has turned green – this let’s you know it is done. Let it sit longer if you’ve got the time.


When you are ready to jar the oil, prepare a large mason jar with a secure cheesecloth around the lid – a tight rubber band will do the trick. Then pour the green oil slowly into the jar. Be sure to leave enough room for the cheesecloth to hold all the plant material, yet not so deep into the jar that the liquid will rise to reach the base of the cheesecloth.

Once the oil is cooled, squeeze the ball of cheesecloth-wrapped plant matter to get the last few drops of infused coconut oil. Cap the jar and label it so that you don’t forget how potent the oil is. Coconut oil is stable at room temperature or in the fridge.

You now have available medicated lotion, cooking oil, or spread for bread – the possibilities are endless.
