*AC Art Of Food in NO way supports nor condones the abuse of drugs, however when used responsibly, cannabis holds many benefits and has been proven to have lifesaving affects.*
In honor of this green holiday, I found a recipe that incorporates the beneficial cannabis oil and a healthy sweet treat all at the same time!
But first, let me provide a bit of education for those out there a bit reluctant or all out against this flowering plant of the Cannabaceae family, when used responsibly that is.
Paraphrased from Wikipedia:
Cannabis, also known as marijuana among other names, is a psychoactive drug from the Cannabis plant used for medical or recreational purposes.
The main psychoactive part of cannabis is tetrahydrocannabinol (THC).
Cannabis can be used by smoking, vaporizing, within food, or as an extract.
Cannabis is also known as hemp, although this term is often used to refer only to varieties of Cannabis cultivated for non-drug use.
Cannabis has long been used for hemp fibre, hemp seeds and their oils, hemp leaves for use as vegetables and as juice, medicinal purposes.
Preliminary evidence suggests that cannabis can reduce nausea and vomiting during chemotherapy, improve appetite in people with HIV/AIDS, and reduce chronic pain and muscle spasms.
Below are just a few of the amazing benefits derived from cannabis:
Again, when used responsibly and as medicinal, cannabis is quite beneficial and a lifesaver to many. And like with anything used irresponsibly, this plant can be harmful- yet, there are no findings of cannabis having fatal effects.
