Homemade Kief-and-Nutmeg Eggnog

 

It’s always an exciting moment to open up the catcher on my grinder to see how much kief I’ve collected. While others pepper their joints with the kief, I like to eat it. It gracefully infuses into oils and fats so there’s no need to strain or use a cheesecloth. It’s potent and low-maintenance which makes me all sorts of happy.

The kief in the catcher smelled especially spicy and earthy from all the OG Kush I’ve been smoking lately. This specific terpene profile is perfect for a medicated eggnog with cinnamon and freshly grated nutmeg. Continue reading “Homemade Kief-and-Nutmeg Eggnog”

Total Time:
10 Mins
Yield
Serves 1 (serving size: 1 frittata)

Frittatas are one of the most efficient vehicles for leftover vegetables. Here, we pair roasted butternut squash with quick-cooking kale for a fiber-rich breakfast duo. A touch of dairy lends creaminess to the egg mixture, which helps achieve the coveted custardy frittata texture. For best results, use a well-seasoned cast-iron skillet and pull it from the oven before the eggs are completely set. Because it retains heat well, a cast-iron will continue to cook your frittata after you remove it from the oven. Continue reading “Butternut-Kale Frittata”

Cannabis and Epilepsy Treatment

Since medicinal cannabis has become a more commonplace alternative for a well-established list of ailments, patients are finding a place for it next to their Advil and Tums.

This is why cannabis – specifically its chemical constituent CBD (cannabidiol) – has become so important for families struggling to treat their epileptic loved ones. Cannabis has demonstrated so much promise in the treatment of epilepsy that FDA-approved clinical trials are underway. But why is it that cannabis in particular is so effective at treating seizures, and why is it critical that clinical investigations continue? Continue reading “Cannabis and Epilepsy Treatment”
