CannaHospitality. New Experiences all 420 friendly!

Hola Amigas

The Cannabis Hospitality Industry has emerged as a result of the Cannabis Tourism Industry. With Colorado creating a legal path to become a Hospitality Business, this is going to be exciting to see what offerings we will have access to.

The Cannabis Hospitality Industry is also Colorado’s way to promote social equity which is one reason I am so excited about the passing of this legislation.

Recently, the Cannabis Industry has been criticized for a lack of diversity and inclusivity within executive leadership. Basically the public was upset because the majority of CEO’s are white males who had vast resources to open these companies. This is especially concerning as Black and Brown People have been at the forefront of legislation and have also been incarcerated and targeted due to the failed War on Drugs, which should be known as the War on Minorities and Poverty.

Colorado wanted to create an easier way to allow individuals to enter the cannabis industry, and the hospitality licensing is just one way they are trying to address social equity. While this is a good start to equity, it is just the beginning to providing reparations to those affected by the war on drugs.

Secondly, this industry is gonna be innovating greatly because of the vast services that can be offered. Colorado has had four or five cannabis lounges that were working around the system by offering private lounges. One thing I loved about the lounges is that some were created to be a club-like experience providing high end dab rigs and vaporizers; while others were created to be more friendly and like a home experience to provide a legal place to smoke. After visiting two lounges, I ended up preferring the casual everyday lounge because the patrons were all very friendly and I made some new friends that day.

Lounges are not the only business popping up, rather there are so many that it is difficult to remember all the offerings. 420 Hotels are becoming more mainstream, and the license allows hotels to create specific smoking friendly rooms if desired. Cannabis DabTenders are another aspect of hospitality because they provide a service of electric dab rigs, DabTenders who clean the glass after every use, and a variety of concentrates to try.

From Cannabis Caterers to Cannabis Weddings, there are more ways than ever to enter this industry. These businesses also allow you to transfer past experiences into a new industry. If you visit a Cannabis Friendly art or yoga class then you have helped the Cannabis Hospitality as hospitality is providing a service and experience.

The most exciting part of this industry is that we have no idea how large it will grow, nor do we know what to expect two years from now. Overall, I am excited to see more minority business owners and the vast array of cannabis-friendly businesses!

Have you gone to a cannabis lounge? What was your experience with that? What businesses do you think might become a major offering?

CannaMints | CannaButtermints Recipe | Munchie Monday | Kush Kitchen

Hola Amigas!

This week I am making some buttermints. Buttermints are my favorite type of mint, but for some reason you can only find them at weddings and around Easter.

I decided to make my own, since I was getting tired of store bought edibles.

For this recipe you will need:

1 stick CannaButter

4 cups of Powdered Sugar

2 tps of Mint Extract

May need an additional 2-4 tbs of water to help it knead together.

Using a Stand Mixer

Place your butter and mint extract into dish and whip together. Slowly add sugar and allow to knead together. You may need to add a little extra of water, but it should look like a dough ball.

Manual Directions

Whisk the softened butter and extract together, slowly fold in sugar in a bowl. Once it is a crumbly texture you can place on counter top and begin kneading the dough together.

Once the dough is sticking together, split into 4 equal size portions. You can place the dough in a mold, or just roll and cut them. You can keep all sizes equal or make bigger and smaller mints depending on your dosing.

Allow the buttermints to sit out overnight to dry, or place in a dehydrator at 320F for 4 hours.

Enjoy!

Infundido Pastillas! Haz tu propia pastillas infundido con cannabis! Munchie Lunes!

Hola Amigas!

Este semana hice pastillas de cannabis. Tengo una garganta sensible asi que siempre uso pastillas para la tos, especialmente después de un dab de cannabis. Ahora, estas pastillas subume y ayuda a mi garganta.

Esta receta es fácil, pero deberas estar preparado. Necesitará un palo de CannaMantequilla, 1 taza de CannaAgave (o infundido miel or miel de maple), 2 cucharadas agua, 1/2 cucharadita de vinagre blanco, y 2 cucharadas de jugo de limón fresco.

También necesitarás una olla pequeña, termómetro de caramelo, espátula, y una sartén forrada en papel pergamino. Obtén todas tus herramientas e ingredientes antes de que empieces.

Colocar mantequilla de cannabis en la olla para derretir. Agrega el agave y mezcla con la mantequilla. Suba el fuego a alto y continúe mezclando. Agregue el vinagre y el agua mientras se mezcla.

A mezcla necesita alcanzar 250F antes de aumentar el calor a 300F. Aumente el calor según sea necesario, revolviendo continuamente.

Una vez que la mezcla es 250F, aumente a alto.

Precaución! Agregar el jugo de limón hará que la mezcla chisporrotee. Agregue cuidadosamente el jugo de limón, leep revolviendo ya que esto disminuirá el chisporroteo. Mantenga la mezcla a fuego alto durante un minuto.

Después uno minuto, apaga el fuego, vierta la mezcla en un plato con pergamino. Coloque en la nevera para dejar enfriar durante 15 minutos, la mezcla se endurecerá.

Después 15 minutos, cortar en porciones con cuchillo. Corté el mío más pequeño de lo necesario, por lo que los míos fueron aproximadamente 8 mg.

Una vez cortado, tíralo a un frasco. Mantengo el mío en la nevera, para que no quede pegajoso.

Eso es!! Tiene pastillas caseras si está enfermo o después de un dab!

Pretty easy right?! What would you guys like to see me make?

Bastante fácil, verdad?!? Qué recetas te gustaría leer?

Crazy Easy Infused Butter

Welcome back to another Munchie Monday’s in my Kush Kitchen!

Guys, I used to hate making infused butter aka cannabutter. It was a long and smelly process but it’s necessary for any Kush Kitchen.

After some research and experimentation, I have found the best way to make you own cannabutter!

I am obsessed with my Instant Pot, like my immersion blender, it’s well loved and has become a staple in my kitchen. I’m sure any other pressure cooker would work just as well, but you may need to tweak the time or settings.

I knew I needed to make 2 sticks of cannabutter, with one stick containing 100mg of extract

200mg (mg I want in butter) / .7125 (Potency) = 280.701mg

280.701mg * 1000 = .281 g of wax needed. Further rounded to .28g of wax.

*** I used more cannabis CO2 oil in mine because future recipes require it. The butter amount remains the same.

Place your concentrate into a glass dish or canning jar. The instant pot comes with a wire rack for steaming, or use a different way elevate the dish. Place dish and fill the pot with water. The water level should rise midway up the container.

Close your pressure cooker and seal. Set to high pressure for 7 minutes, turn off warming feature.

When the instant pot finishes decarbing our concentrate, do an instant realize. You can cover the steam spout with a towel.

Place softened butter into your container. It will begin to melt and mix into our oil. Place the lid on with the valve set to seal. Place on high pressure for 15 minutes.

Once again do an instant release of pressure. Mix the butter to ensure even dispersion. Remove from instant pot, and blend for about 5 minutes while bowl cools down.

Place in fridge and let cool for 1-2 hours.

That’s it! Literally!

You can use this butter in cookies, brownies, to flavor your veggies! Use in a ‘baked’ potato, or mix with cinnamon for a cinnamon butter to pair with toast or biscuits.

Don’t use this to sear or fry food as that will cause the THC to degrade. This butter is meant to add flavor and should not be used if the temperature will go over 350F

How are you gonna use this recipe? What infused recipes would you like to see?

Mantequilla de Cannabis Facil Loca!

Bienvenidos a otro Munchie Lunes en mi Kocina de Kush!

Güey, solía odiar hacer mantequilla de cannabis. Fue un proceso largo y maloliente, pero es elemento básico en una Kocina de Kush.

Después de un poco de investigación y experimentación, he encontrado la mejor manera de hacer tu propio mantequilla de cannabis.

Estoy obsesionada con mi Instant Pot, como mi licuadora de inmersión, es muy querido y es un elemento básico en my cocina. Puede usar cualquier olla a presión, pero es posible que deba cambiar la hora o la configuración.

Sabía que necesitaba hacer dos palitos de mantequilla, con uno palito que contiene 100mg of THC/CBD.

200mg (mg ) / .7125 (Potencia) = 280.701mg

280.701mg * 1000 = .281 g de concertada. Redondeado a 28g de cera.

Usé más aceite de cannabis en mío por futuro recetas. La cantidad de mantequilla se mantiene igual.

Sitio tu concertado en un plato de vidrio o frasco de conservas. El Instant Pot viene con uña rejilla para cocinar al vapor, necesitarías alguna forma de elevar el plato. Sitio tu plato dentro de el Instant Pot. Llenar con agua. Agregue agua hasta que llegue al centro del frasco.

Cerrar la olla a presión y sello. Establecer a alta presión durante 7 minutos. Desactiva la función de calentamiento

Una vez terminado, libere la presión. cubra la boca de vapor con una toalla, mientras se libera la presión.

Coloqué dos palitos de mantequilla dentro del plato, comenzará a derretirse y mezclarse con el aceite/concertado. Una vez más, coloque la tapa y selle. Ajustado a alta presión durante 15 minutos

Última vez! liberar la presión y luego mezclar con una licuadora de inmersión por cinco minutos.

Dejar enfriar en la nevera durante 1-2 horas

Esteban hechos!

Puede usar esta mantequilla en productos horneados o para dar sabor a las verduras. No se recomienda si la temperatura es superior a 350F.

Cómo usaras tú mantequilla de cannabis? ¿Alguna receta que quieras leer a continuación?

Life Updates and News!

Let’s just get into things

I’m unemployed. Still stings to say it but honestly I’m actually pretty thankful about it. I thought it was my dream job, and thought it was gonna give me the freedom to just create. There was way to much change going on without necessary leadership for guidance. It also became obvious that my creative freedom had very defined limits and that it was an uphill battle just to start, so like I said I’m viewing this as an opportunity.

Before I go further, I want to address how lucky I am that things worked out as they did. This privilege is allowing me to switch gears and focus while many out there are just figuring out how to survive and pay their bills. I want anyone who is struggling to know that I am with you and will continue to fight to make things better! You are needed, special, and loved.

Back to the content! I’m switching many focuses so I will be finishing my degree because I’m tired of being in school 🤣

As for the blog, I’m gonna switch things up a little bit. Firstly, I’m gonna be posting so much more! I’m gonna be giving out recipes and tips for integrating cannabis into your day to day life! This site will also become a place to learn about Multigenerational and Sustainable Living!

Be prepared for tips on making edibles, topicals, or other cannabis items. Be ready to learn about living with a ton of people in one house, and cheap and easy DIYs for your house! As always I’m in a state of nervous excited energy, be ready for all the posts!
