Cannabis Recipes for Easter

Many people around the world celebrate the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. This Holy Week, Christians (especially those churches belonging to Western Christian churches) around the globe are taking the time not only to revere Christ but also to celebrate His arrival once more. On the other end of the spectrum, there are also weed-enthusiasts who just love the idea of celebrating Easter and finding CBD oil edibles in their Easter eggs.

If you are one of these people, chances are you are looking for other ways you can spice up this day. Sure, smoking a joint with your friends is fun. But apart from this activity, how else can you make this a day to remember? With food, of course. There is nothing that cannabis-infused recipes cannot do, especially being surrounded by like-minded individuals who share the same passion and appreciation for the herb.

Whether you are holding a get together or you are simply interested in the idea of making novel foodstuff for your friends and family, below are some CBD oil-infused recipes you might want to check out. These are perfect for gifting, giving, and eating during this Easter.

Amazing CBD Recipes This Easter

Artichoke Dip

With all the hustle and bustle that comes with preparations, whipping up an easy, savory, and comforting snack is one you should not miss. With a cannabis-infused artichoke dip, you can provide a heart-warming dish to start your celebration. The creamy, chunky, and savory taste will certainly leave you wanting more.

This recipe from Weed and Bake is easy enough to follow. All you need are some cashews that have been soaked for 2 hours, unsweetened almond milk, lemon juice, garlic, nutritional yeast, sea salt, mustard, artichoke hearts, spinach, and the ever-present CBD oil.

Pair this dip with some crackers or even some good ol’ potato chips. Trust us, you’ll leave your guests or your recipients wanting more.

Pesto Pasta

To truly get you in the spirit of being green and high, making pesto pasta with pure cannabidiol oil will definitely put you in the mood. This light yet filling meal is perfect with garlic bread served on the side, as well as a bottle of white wine to help you relax and unwind.

Zamnesia’s recipe for pesto steers clear of the usual pine nuts. Instead, the recipe calls for fresh arugula, extra virgin olive oil, garlic, salt, pepper, walnuts, and some parmesan cheese. Of course, the pure cannabidiol should not be forgotten, especially with its ability to add depth, dimension, and flavor to a classic dish.

By using walnuts and arugula, you will lend an earthier flavor to this meal. Finish this off with a generous sprinkling of parmesan cheese and perhaps a spritz of lemon and you are good to go.

Carrot Cake

Nothing says ‘Easter’ like a well-made carrot cake. As a matter of fact, this may well be reminiscent of your childhood romps in your garden finding Easter eggs or even your excitement over meeting the Easter bunny. Now that you are well into adulthood, you will find that this carrot cake recipe will bring about a sense of nostalgia you have not encountered before.

For this dessert, you will need grated carrots, eggs, sugar, vegetable oil, vanilla, flour, baking soda, cinnamon, salt, nutmeg, butter, cream cheese, and powdered sugar. The easy-to-follow recipe from Thanksgiving & Co. will have you making this not only for this occasion but all year round. This specific formula calls for 280 milligrams of your chosen CBD oil, however, you can tailor this depending on your needs.

Whip these recipes up in time for Easter and these cannabis-infused dishes will certainly put you in everyone’s good graces. Your fellow weed-loving friends will thank you for it.

US-Restaurants that Serve CBD Food and Drinks

Because of the huge demand for anything cannabidiol or CBD, businesses are also getting into the fun by mixing this compound with their products. For instance, there are restaurants that create meals with CBD ingredient to attract more people into their premises.

In the US, more and more states legalize the use of marijuana and its active compounds like CBD and Tetrahydrocannabinol or THC. In case you need a dose of cannabidiol, here are some restaurants that you can visit.

by CHLOE

A well-known vegan restaurant. This place is a vegan wonderland because all their recipes are made from organic ingredients and are 100% vegan. By Chloe takes pride in their luscious menu, from salads, snacks, sandwiches and burgers, pasta, breakfast meals and of course, desserts.

Their CBD treats include chocolate leafy brownies, Ooey Cinnamoney roll, Chocolatey Cookey GF, Salty Peanutty Buttery Piey and more. The brand introduced a line called FEELZ, which sells its own collection of CBD-infused sweets. Check out FEELZ by Chloe to see more desserts they sell.

Zenbarn

Zenbarn offers a healthier set of meals to fill your tummy. They have snacks for sharing, cocktails, noodles, vegan bowls, drinks and more. This place has become a gem for its Salad infused with CBD dressing. A perfect combination of greens and natural ingredients that are not only good for the body but also tasteful.

If you are in the mood for a heavy snack, you might want to try the chicken wings in CBD garlic parmesan flavor. All the ingredients are gluten-free and you will love the combination of garlic and cannabidiol. Zenbarn also has CBD-infused burger or the ‘420 Burger’ with CBD aioli for that mild hint of cannabidiol.

Fuel

Looking for an extra boost? Philadelphia’s Fuel is not only healthy but also flavorful because of fruity smoothies. This restaurant infuses cannabidiol to its smoothies that taste like a normal one but makes one feel relaxed and pain-free. Their CBD Menu consists of CBD Berry Dream which has strawberry, Mango, Apple, and Banana; CBD Green Dream which has Kale, Spinach, Honey, Pineapple and Ginger; and CBD Orange Dream which has Non-Fat Yogurt, Banana, French Vanilla Shot and OJ.

In case you have a busy schedule and you don’t have time to cook, you can drop by at Fuel and get your cannabidiol fix.

The Breslin

A New York City hotel called Ace Hotel serves CBD-infused brownies at its lobby. The Breslin added the new line of cannabidiol-infused pastries and cocktails to its menu. The restaurant uses Rosebud CBD oil as its main ingredient for brownies and cocktails.

The pastries are the best-sellers to the Breslin, especially the brownies. Before, The Breslin allowed RSVPs but eventually turn it down due to busy scheduling and high demand. The cocktails are also a game-changer which is a rendition of a French drink that has Rosebud CBD oil. All in all, this place is perfect for early night drinks and dessert.

Bubby’s

Try coffee with a twist that is CBD at one of New York’s famous eatery, Bubby’s. The restaurant serves coffee with an added CBD sweetener for that relaxing treat. It is both refreshing and energy-boosting every sip. Try the coffee with their house specials Bacon, Mac N Cheese, and Fluffy pancakes.

If you’re in the mood for good food, drinks, and desserts, these are the restaurants you can check out for that extra special ingredient that is CBD. Remember to check the dosage or strength to avoid any side effects like upset stomach and nausea. Although CBD oil benefits are guaranteed, it’s also important to know how much you can tolerate.

Maker of Arizona Iced Tea to Enter Cannabis Industry

Arizona Iced Tea

Arizona Beverage Co., the company behind the popular Arizona Iced Tea is set to break into the marijuana business by engaging in a licensing deal with a leading cannabis CPG company, Dixie Brands Inc.

The said partnership will enable Dixie to manufacture and distribute cannabis-infused products under Arizona’s name. The products, which include vape pens and THC-infused gummies, will be sold through licensed dispensaries. If all goes according to plan, the product list is also expected to extend to beverages, such as tea, lemonade, soda, and coffee.

“The cannabis market is an important emerging category, and we’ve maintained our independence as a private business to be positioned to lead and seize generation-defining opportunities exactly like this one,” said Arizona Beverages Chairman, Don Vultaggio, in a press release. “The cannabis category is an ideal space to bring the flavor and fun of AriZona into new and exciting products.”

Under the arrangement, the New-York based beverage company can purchase a $10 million stake in Dixie brands. The initial term of the partnership between the two companies is set to last three years, with an option to renew twice for two years each.

“Arizona is a power brand and the most iconic and recognized CPG brand to extend into the cannabis market, providing the evolving cannabis consumer with a fun and flavourful experience alongside an iconic brand they know and love,” said Dixie Brands CEO, Chuck Smith.

This latest move done by Arizona isn’t the first unique turn the company has committed this year. Last July, it had engaged in a partnership with Adidas and sold tea-branded sneakers for 99 cents. The company’s entrance into the industry marks the first international corporation to announce such plans before the drug is federally legalized in the U.S.

Cannabis Industry  – It’s Bright Future

Lately, other beverage brands have been engaging in a series of partnerships with major marijuana key players. In 2017, Constellation Brands announced a 10% stake in the Ontario-based cannabis company, Canopy Growth Corporation. A year later, Coca Cola revealed it was in talks with Canadian company Aurora Cannabis to develop marijuana drinks. Molson Coors, another multinational brewing giant, has also announced plans to partner with cannabis producer Hexo Corp.

“This partnership marks a watershed moment for the popularization and expansion of the cannabis sector overall, and is another large step forward for Dixie Brands’ strategy to build a house of famous cannabis … brands,” said Mr. Smith.

Big Alcohol Companies to Develop Cannabis Drinks

Cannabis Drinkables

With the recent breakthroughs in cannabis legalization, more and more companies have expressed interest in joining the marijuana trend. Recently, The Verge reported that so-called Big Alcohol wants to cash in on the potentials of the legal marijuana market.

Some liquor-focused companies have announced their development of cannabis-infused non-alcoholic drinks. The new line-up of products includes alcohol-free beers, seltzers and fruit punches, all infused with the plant.

Big alcohol firm Molson Coors recently acquired majority stocks from a marijuana-related joint venture with HEXO, a licensed producer of the plant. On the other hand, Anheuser-Busch InBev funneled $50 million toward another joint venture, this time with Tilray.

Lagunitas, a known manufacturer of hop-flavored cannabis sparkling water, is owned by Heineken. Another liquor business dabbling in marijuana includes Corona and Modelo which owns 38% of Canopy Growth in stakes.

Marijuana and alcohol

According to a resource of the American Addiction Centers, intaking both substances can “lead to significant issues.” This is because both substances have similar effects such as sedation, perceptual and hallucinogenic effects and judgment alterations. In higher doses, both can also reduce motor coordination and slow down reflexes.

The combined consumption of the two enhances the effect of both substances. Alcohol is known to increase and prolong the effects of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). As judgment is affected, individuals can also intake more liquor than they can handle, resulting in alcohol poisoning.

Meanwhile, there is no known occurrence of cannabis overdosing. However, overconsumption can lead to increased risk of death.

The market for Cannabis Drinkables

The Verge noted that there is really no market for cannabis drinks as records show that only 2 or 3% of the sales are cannabis beverages. However, alcohol players believe that the market for these products will increase.

Mark Hunter, CEO of Molson Coors, remarked that cannabis drink can occupy at least 20 to 30% of future marijuana sales.

Amanda Chicago Lewis from The Verge noted that drinkables contain low levels of THC, with only 2.5 milligrams per bottle. Because of this, consumers who want to feel the effects of the cannabinoid will need to drink a large amount of the beverage.

Aside from the low doses of cannabinoids in these drinks, another issue is the taste. Lewis mentioned that such products taste like “bong water,” which may not be appealing to many consumers.

With such concerns, alcohol companies are facing the challenge of increasing the demand for their marijuana products.
