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?

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?

Better Sleep with a Chronic Illness 5 items Zebra’s need for better sleep!

Being a Zebra, is difficult not only am I constantly making sure I walk properly so I don’t trip and dislocate something, but sleeping is a nightmare. I toss and turn because after a while things start to hurt and then I need to move.

Even though I sleep a lot I never felt rested so by the weekend; I’m exhausted and don’t want to do anything but sleep. Being extraverted, I felt angry that I couldn’t have more fun because I was unable to fell rested.

After talking to my doctor, changing prescriptions, and making some changes to my sleep routine, I am able to wake up far more rested. Thus letting me get more done throughout my week while still being able to have fun and spend time with my family. I do encourage you to talk to your doctor! We decided to change my anti-depressant to one that also has pain relieving side effects, we also added a nightly anti-anxiety and sleep aid so that I can fall asleep quicker.

The following items have helped me, as a Zebra, to wake up more rested and refreshed!

1. A WEIGHTED BLANKET

Everything you heard is true! I thought I would hate a weighted blanket, but it helps me fall asleep quickly and makes my sleep more restful. I fell into a bad habit of not being able to sleep, so I spent all day in bed trying to rest, but that made things worse. Using the blanket has decreased the time it takes for me to fall asleep, and I hardly notice the blanket now. It did take some time to get accustomed to the blanket, the first night I only used for about half the night. My weighted blanket is the standard 15 pounds, which I chose to make sure I could fall asleep and as a daily weight-lifting challenge. You may want to purchase a lighter weight or make your own, but seriously if you do nothing else get one of these!

2. AN EYE MASK bonus if it also serves as headphones

I have been using an eye mask for years because it forces me to fall asleep. I used to spend hours awake just trying to fall asleep but constantly opening my eyes. Using an eye mask cancels out all of those distractions and I don’t worry about lights waking me up. I recently made an upgrade and chose an eye mask that included head phones, and I love it. It is bright pink and huge and is perfect with the crazy schedules that my husband and I have. I can turn on a meditation or music on the headphones to help me fall asleep or to keep me sleeping when Kyle wakes up at 4am.

3. A FOAM ROLLER

I know this sounds weird, but it really has helped be ‘loosen’ up at the end of the day. I get muscle and joint pain, which makes sleeping really difficult. I have started a 15 minute decompress routine, I use the foam roller to massage my neck, back, and most of my muscles. I usually place it under my neck for a minute, and then slowly move it down to my lower back. If an area needs more time to stretch, I will sit there and rock back and forth to gently loosen up my muscles. It also helps me elevate my knees when I’m sitting in bed, or placed behind my lower back support.

4. ALL THE PILLOWS!

Okay, maybe not all the pillows but I do have a lot of pillows because I never know which one will help me when I have joint pain. I have 2 regular pillows, and use one for my head, the second can be cuddled or prop up a shoulder. I also have a body pillow for when every joint needs extra love and help. I found a less fluffy body-pillow works best for me because I like to use them for gentle sleep support.

5. TOPICALS!

A topical is any product which is applied to the skin like a lotion, cream, or salve and they have given me targeting pain relief. You can make your own topicals fairly easily (subscribe to my blog for future recipes) but there are many decent ones in the Colorado market. I prefer topicals that are in a stick or tube, like a chapstick or deodorant container, because it is way less messy. The other benefit is that in a tube it becomes like a targeted massager so that I can both apply the topical, increase blood flow, and work out any knots all with one product! Pretty cool right?!

I have noticed a huge change in my sleep quality since using these in my sleep regime, and am constantly looking for more ways to getter better sleep. What has helped you sleep better?

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!

Soy un Ganador!

Hello Friends!

The 2019 Colorado Cannabis Cup was absolutely amazing and turned out better than I had hoped!

We received 1st Place for our CBD Vape, 1st Place for our Bath Bombs, and 2nd Place for our CBD Edibles!

I am so honored that all of our hard work was recognized on such a large scale! This is also a major personal milestone. I always have a fear of not “living up to my potential,” especially when I decided to take an unorthodox path to my career. Hearing Coda getting announced for our CBD Vape was just a moment of complete shock and happiness.

At that moment, all the struggles and uncertainty became worth it. It validated my decision to go against the flow and forge a new path.

I am so proud of all of my coworkers! We have all worked hard and pushed ourselves to make things perfect.

To those who might be reading this, it pays off to follow your dreams. It takes time, perseverance, and commitment but your dreams will come true if you can hold on long enough!

Authentically Yours,

Kelcie Kush
