For People that Love Gourmet Edibles

 

How to satisfy your munchies while medicating with your favorite strain.

 

Do you like popcorn?  Are you having a party and the guests appreciate finer edibles?  Consider Elite cannabis popcorn.  How to make, quite possibly the tastiest cannabis popcorn around.  More than tasty, its also highly nutritional, medicinal and psychadelic.  It only takes a few extra minutes to make this truly world class canna-popcorn,  that even the elites of this world would be impressed with? Maybe.   

 

This snack, in reality, has a surprisingly balanced nutritional profile, carbs in the popcorn, plus a little oil from the cannabis, a sprinkle of cheese and fresh spices and herbs.  After you cook up a batch, consider if this is the tastiest and healthiest sugarless cannabis edible snack out there?   


 

FACTS ABOUT THIS POPCORN RECIPE

  • Did you know that one cup of popped popcorn contains about 30 calories?  

  • One cup of popcorn kernels makes about cooked 10 cups of pop-corn.

  • The oil and cheese is where the calories come from, where 1 tablespoon of oil is about 100 calories.

  • The total calories in one cup of popcorn with cheese, cannabis oil and herbs is about 75 calories.

  • Three cups of popcorn with oil is equivalent to about one mars bar.

  • By using half the oil, five cups of popcorn is the equivalent to a mars bar.


This snack can be a very wholesome and nutritious, if you all organic ingredients, the base popcorn, fresh herbs and spices along with quality non-sprayed.  Quality garlic is good for you, cannabis butter is good for you, sea salt is good for you, quality parmesan cheese in small amounts can be tolerated by most everyone.

The effects of edibles last for about eight hours and more, so it is important not to add too much marijuana into the mix, or else you'll be stoned for half a day or more.



INGREDIENTS

  • 1/2 cup or 4 oz kernels of organic popcorn
  • 1 tablespoon real virgin olive oil
  • 2-3 tablespoons cannabutter
  • 2-3 tablespoons grated Parmesan Cheese from range fed dairy sea salt organic dry garlic (or other spices


 

NOTES ABOUT INGREDIENTS

For lower calories add 2 tablespoons

You can make your own spices by finely chopping up ginger, garlic, onion or others by drying at low heat overnight

If you enjoy pepper, black peppercorns can be freshly ground in a coffee grinder, and the potency and flavor is just incredible.  After this experience, you'll never use that foreground stuff ever again.

Of course you can't afford the time you can use off the shelf salt, garlic salt and parmesan cheese.  However, perhaps you should consider finding the time to consume good organic food.  


 

POP THE CORN

  • Pop the popcorn any way you want, but the following method is recommended.
  • Put the olive oil in a 4 quart heavy pot and heat at medium heat for one minute.
    Stir in the kernels, turning with a spoon so that they are covered with oil.

  • Spread them in one layer where all kernels are touching bottom.

  • Turn up heat to medium-high.

  • Cover the pot and wait, shake around a bit every minute.

  • After the first kernel pops, smoothly shake the pot around continuously back and forth over medium-high heat until the popping stops.

  • Remove from heat.  Place pot on another burner on low heat..
    Add cannabutter and spices - see below.

 

"This is the only way to pop popcorn. When someone gives me a popcorn popper, I try it, but it soon gets donated. I've been using this method and recipe for over 50 years. The only thing I don't do is to stir the corn in the oil. I'll try that. Eating a bowl of popcorn before bedtime helps me to sleep. Thanks for posting this great recipe." - Mountain Baby


ADDING CANNABUTTER AND SPICES

Heat the cannabutter in a small sauce-skillet pan at low-medium heat.  Stir the oil with a wooden spoon (never use plastics in cooking) until it bubbles and foams (takes a couple of minutes). Add spices and mix one minute.  Salt can be added now or later.  The cannabutter is now ready to pour on the popcorn.  

Note: Watch that the heat is not too hot where fumes come off and the cannabutter becomes overly brown, because once it's burnt it becomes bitter.  Also, if the oil starts to smell nutty, back off on the heat and remove immediately..  

Drizzle the hot spicy cannabis-butter over the popcorn (that is sitting on the burner at low heat). Sprinkle with the Parmesan and then add the sea salt to taste. Stir up the popcorn with a wood spoon to evenly distribute the cannabutter and spices.Get it while its hot.   Leftovers can be kept for several days in an airtight container.

POTENCY CALCULATION

If you are new to edibles, you want to be real conservative on how much you eat.

The way to calculate the THC content in your edible is to first find out how many mg of THC is in your oil.   Then figure out how many mg is in the amount you added to your recipe.  Then divide the number of servings by the amount you added and that is the dose.

For example, it the THC content of your marijuana is 20% and you 10 grams to prepare your oil, it has 0.2 x 10g or 2 g THC in it.  This is equivalent to 2,000 mg.  The amount of THC that can cause a significant response is only 10-20 mg.  This means that your oil is good for 200 servings! at 10 mg per serving.   Some veterans can handle much more 50 to 100 mg and they can adjust the amount of THC in recipes accordingly.
