There are endless ways to incorporate cannabis into your daily lifestyle.  We like to think of it as another amazing plant to integrate into your health and wellness regiment.  Using cannabis in your meals is an easy way to get your daily intake of powerful cannabinoids.

There are some amazing butters and oils out on the market right now, for example Pot d’Huile.  If you’re planning on making your own canna-fats, please be careful with your dosage, as many of you know, edibles are an easy way to over-consume cannabis.  We like to use the a great calculator by Jeff the 420 Chef to dose our butters and oils.

Here’s a delicious recipes from my husband, Chef Frank Villa of Marinitas and Bohemian Villa.

**Carrot Sauce is made to dose according to guests preference on potency.  Guest can use as much as they desire.  The potency of your Spring Pea mash depends on the potency of the Cannabutter you are using.  If you have a very potent homemade butter – you may need to use 1/2 cannabutter and 1/2 regular butter for example.  This is for the host to determine.  

At BV, we make our light potency butter so that we can use more butter per serving.  Cause let’s face it… butter makes it better 😉

For this recipe, the Spring Pea Mash is your base and guests may add carrot sauce as desired.
