Citrus peels such as oranges, limes, and tangerines are high in powerful antioxidants which reduce your bad cholesterol. They are 20 times more powerful than the antioxidants found within the juice itself. The peels also boast anti-cancer, anti-allergenic anti-inflammatory agents.

Mary Jane’s CBD Rainbow Warrior Juice

Mary Jane’s CBD Rainbow Warrior Juice

Juicing has been a family staple since 2013 when I began to study the topic and incorporate it into my lifestyle. It has been a wonderful journey and now I have been blessed to share that joy with my child. My daughter Mary Jane came up with a new recipe yesterday that both had us going, “MmmmmMmMmmm!!!!”

You might be asking yourself why you should even bother juicing when the store has tons of juice? Welll simple, fresh pressed juice has a plethora of concentrated enzymes that are active or “alive”, phytochemicals, soluable fiber (it leaves behind the insoluble fiber), immune boosting minerals and vitamins, it is alkaline in nature, and can help you meet your daily quota of fresh fruits and veggies. When you pasturize juice it kills the enzymes and degrades or cancels out the other health boosting profiles. See all that foam on top of the juice? Alive with oxygen and soulable fiber.

And you might be thinking, well, that is too expensive?! The short answer is no. You can get a simple juicer as cheap as $34 and buy cheaper produce such as celery, bargain apples, and other bargin fruits in the fruit clearence section of your grocery store. People want to believe eating healthy is not cheap. But when it comes down to it, the average bunch of celery goes for $1.99 and you can get a bag of dicounted apples for $1. Might sound simple, but juicing those two every day far exceeds the benefits of “dead juice” or buying junk or fast food.

You can make the adult version by adding Gemstone CBD salt. Sapphire CBD Salt is a flexible source of hemp-derived CBD that is easy to incorporate into your daily routine. Made with just two ingredients, Himalayan Pink Salt and US grown hemp-derived CBD, Sapphire CBD Salt can be used in place of traditional salt. Sprinkle some Sapphire on your favorite dish and savor the moment. But salt, in juice, really?! Just a pinch really compliments the celery and sweet fruits in this drink. While adding important trace minerals to your drink. Salt also is important for your delicate electrolyte balance. Enjoy!

Mise en place:

  • 6 Pink Lady Apples with skin on
  • 1 pound of celery
  • 4 navel oranges leaving the pith
  • 5 limes leaving the pith
  • 1 pinch Gemstone Sapphire CBD Salt

Dirctions:

  • Cut up the apples leaving the skin on. Now peel the limes and oranges leaving on the pith. Cut off the butt of the celery and pull apart.
  • Juice the apples, followed by the limes, celery, and oranges.
  • Pour into glasses and serve. If you want a CBD adult version, add a pinch of CBD salt and stir.

Note:

Lastly, CBD can interact with some medications. Generally the rule of thumb is, if your medication interacts with grapefruit, don’t take CBD. Always check with your doctor before consuming CBD.

A study came out recently that suggests CBD may lower immune function in those with immune diseases. However, there is not enough data with more studies to have a solid answer on this. The study itself still had too many variables that were not addressed such as dosage, full spectrum/broad spectrum/isolate benefits or disadvantages, ect. And as herbalists and doctors can both say, the dosage makes the poison.” All things are poison, and nothing is without poison, the dosage alone makes it so a thing is not a poison.” Therefore, ask your doctor and use to lowest dosage possible that your body benefits and gets results from. Less, is better.

Here is a list of some known interactions, though it is not a complete list, so ask your doctor!

  • Antiarrythmics
  • Adderal
  • Antibiotics
  • Steroids
  • Calcium channel blockers
  • Benzodiazepines such as Xanax
  • Anesthetics
  • Antihistamines
  • HIV antivirals
  • Antipsychotics
  • Antidepressants
  • Anti-epileptics
  • Beta blockers
  • NSAIDS

Just Kavalicious: Vegan Gluten-Free Kava Banana Nice Cream

Just Kavalicious: Vegan Gluten-Free Kava Banana Nice Cream

You scream, I scream, we all scream, for Vegan Kava Banana Nice Cream! A wonderfully delicious and healthy dairy free option – this creamy dessert is sure to please even the most die hard ice cream lover. A smooth blend of frozen bananas, full-fat coconut milk, vanilla, sunflower seed butter, and kava powder – this recipe is easier than any traditional ice cream could dream of being.

Fu’u kava powder is used in this recipe as it possesses a complex coconut and roasted tree nut like flavor. This strain also is not as bitter as some other varieties making it the perfect addition to any banana nice cream recipe. Fu’u brings about a social euphoria that is akin to a very good social sativa. It inspires conversation, good mood, light hardheartedness, and creativity. Really, the perfect night cap after a dinner with friends on the weekend!

The roasted coconut and tree nut flavor profiles of this strain marry harmoniously with the tropical flavor of the bananas and creamy coconut milk. The addition of the sunflower seed butter adds a depth and buttery mouthfeel to the banana nice cream. A combination that might have you replacing dairy ice cream really soon! Enjoy with your friends and loved ones for an ultra decadent treat without all the guilt!

Mise en place:

  • 5 frozen organic bananas
  • 3 tbs sunflower seed butter or another nut butter of your choice
  • 1 cup canned full-fat coconut milk
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon powdered Fu’u kava*
  • 1/8th teaspoon xanthan gum

Method 1:

  1. Break up the bananas and add them to a high powered blender. Add the sunflower seed butter, coconut milk, vanilla extract, kava, and xanthan gum.
  2. Blend until the mixture becomes a creamy soft serve. You can add more coconut milk if you want to thin the consistency or add less to make it thicker.
  3. Serve immediately and enjoy! Any unused portion can be saved in the freezer for up to 4 weeks.

Method 2:

  1. Break up the bananas and add them to a high powered blender. Add the sunflower seed butter and vanilla extract.
  2. Add the coconut milk to a bowl and the xanthan gum. Whisk until fully incorporated.
  3. Take some cheesecloth and add the kava powder to the center. Tie it up and place it into the coconut milk. Let the powder soak for 2 minutes.
  4. Squeeze the kava while kneading it in the coconut milk for 2 more minutes.
  5. Add the milk to the bananas, sun butter, and vanilla extract. Blend until the mixture becomes a creamy soft serve. You can add more coconut milk if you want to thin the consistency or add less to make it thicker.
  6. Serve immediately and enjoy! Any unused portion can be saved in the freezer for up to 4 weeks.

Yield: 4 Servings

*For beginners, I recommend 1/2 teaspoon to 1 teaspoon for this batch of Vegan Kava Banana Ice Cream. You can increase it as you get used to the medicinal effects of the kava. You can add up to 1 tablespoon if you want a stronger effect.

Vegan Gluten-Free Dark Chocolate Kush Hazelnut Drops

Vegan Gluten-Free Dark Chocolate Kush Hazelnut Drops

Easter is a special time that is full of celebration and delicious chocolates. This year, why not celebrate with a healthier (but still delicious) medicated take on chocolate treats that you won’t feel guilty about indulging in.

These dark Chocolate Kush hazelnut drops are packed with essential fatty acids, antioxidants, fiber, protein, folate, poly-phenols, vitamin E, vitamin K and flavonoids. Not only will they make your body happy nutrient-wise, they’ll also stimulate serotonin and endorphin production in your brain, which can help promote better moods and sleep.

This recipe also allows for flexibility of cannabis dosage, so you can make them either heavily or lightly medicated: Chocolate Kush is an indica-dominant hybrid strain that possesses strong pain relieving effects and heavy cerebral impacts, a combination that makes for a wonderful lazy Sunday.

These chocolate drops are the perfect treat during Easter brunch or just to munch on throughout the day. Enjoy with a dark roast coffee and the flavors of Chocolate Kush impart a sweet chocolate flavor with a hint of vanilla.

Mise en place:

• 1 cup dark chocolate hazelnut butter (homemade or store bought)

• 1/2 cup ground flax seed

• 1/4 cup Chocolate Kush infused raw coconut oil dosage of your choice

Directions:

Step 1: Set out the dark chocolate hazelnut butter and Chocolate Kush-infused raw coconut oil until it reaches room temperature.

Step 2: In a medium to large size bowl, add the chocolate hazelnut butter and Chocolate Kush infused coconut butter. With a wooden spoon, stir this mixture until fully combined, then cover and place in the fridge for 15-20 minutes or until firm.

Step 3: Using a scale, tare a new bowl and scoop out the dark Chocolate Kush hazlenut mixture into it. Now divide the mixture into equal servings using the scale and spoon. Roll each serving in your hand to form it into a ball, then roll it in the ground flax seed. Place the dark Chocolate Kush hazlenut Drops onto a cookie tray lined with wax paper as you make them, then place they tray into the fridge.

Step 4: Store in the fridge until you are ready to serve or you can store them in the freezer for long term storage. Enjoy!

Dosage:

If Chocolate Kush’s THC content tests around 22 percent THC, then 22 percent of 1,000 mg would equal 220 mg per gram. Substitute the number of your strain’s THC percentage and do the math to figure out your desired dosage per teaspoon for the cannabis-infused coconut oil that you make.

Strain Substitution:

I would recommend any strain with terpenes that match the chocolaty flavor profile of Chocolate Kush: Chocolate Thai, Chocolope, Chocolate Chunk and Chocolate OG would be great alternative choices. Be creative, follow your nose and taste buds and have fun with it.
