In addition to the sales of Lakers paraphernalia and water, some surprising entrepreneurs took to the parade route to sell their wares.

Among them was a mobile truck, Weed World Candies.com, selling marijuana lollipops in hues of orange and blue. (The truck itself is green with a photo mural of young women in bikinis sorting marijuana leaves.)

The assortment included brands of marijuana such as OG Kush and Grand Daddy Perp. The truck’s owner, Bilal Muhammad, said he was recently forced to shut down his store in West Hollywood and had taken his business on the road.

Customers approaching his truck were asked if they had a prescription card allowing them to purchase marijuana and then were handed a free lollipop.

“It’s been working out very well,” he said of business before driving away as police became visible in the distance.

So far, Muhammad was able to work without interruption from police.

Information About Cooking With Marijuana

Cooking with Marijuana

Most weed-related recipes call for the making of a certain quantity of “Marijuana Butter” or “Bud Butter”, which is then used as a replacement for standard butter in a cooking situation. To prepare pot for eating it has to be heated in some way. It won’t work if the weed is eaten without preparation, because the digestive system is unable to digest THC directly. When cooking with weed, it is very important to use fat (oil, butter, milk) because THC (the stuff that gets you stoned) is fat soluble and not water soluble. It is therefore impossible to get high from pot tea, for example, without adding some milk. Learn how to make bud butter

How to make Bud Butter

Cooking with weed offers an alternative to inhaling marijuana smoke to get high. By using “Bud Butter” in your recipes you can consume the marijuana in a tasty way.

Here’s one recipe for Bud Butter:

Ingredients
1 lb. of butter (not margarine!)
1/2 ounce of finely ground marijuana

Method
Melt the butter in a sauce pan until it’s simmering.
Add the marijuana and let simmer for 30 minutes or so until the butter has turned green from the marijuana.
Pour butter through a strainer to remove all the pieces of marijuana.
Chill until solid.

Methods of THC extraction

- butter
– cooking oil (soak in for a week)
– milk
– cream
– flour – Another method that doesn’t require cooking is cannaflour. Grind the cannabis up as fine as you can get it, and mix it with the following ratio: for every cup of flour, mix in a half cup of powdered cannabis. Your final product is cannaflour, and you can use it in just about every baking recipe.
– weed – If you’re in a hurry you can also do the following: melt some (dairy) butter in a pan and throw in some weed; stir a bit, and then fry an egg (or a pancake or whatever) in it. Don’t throw the weed away, it will still contain some THC. Eat the egg or whatever you made. Sweet stuff (honey, syrup, marmalade) tastes good with weed.

What are the effects?

It can take anywhere from 20 minutes to even up to 4-5 hours for the effects to set in. The biggest problem here is to find the right amount. When smoked, the effects set in almost immediately, so it is easy to judge how much you need. After eating some weed, some users are too impatient, and they think they need more. While it is not possible to overdose on weed, the effects of eating too much cannabis are not pleasant. You may feel sick, confused, unable to move or talk, and your coordination may be heavily affected. These effects may last a long time, much longer than when smoked. It is therefore important not to eat too much. Start with a low dose, and increase it the next time, if needed. Experiment to find the right amount. If you eat too much, a high dose of vitamin c (200mg or more) may help to make you feel better.

When eaten, pot takes longer to work, depending on: the amount and quality of the weed/hash, the rate of your digestion system, and the amount of food you’ve eaten beforehand. For best results, we recommend not eating anything at least 2-3 hours before eating your marijuana.

How much weed do I use?

Since weed is not an “officially regulated” product it’s hard to recommend an amount to use as the strength of the weed will vary greatly. Many people prefer to use “cabbage,” or the leafy, low quality type of weed, in their cooking. Buds are usually reserved for smoking, but of course you’re free to cook buds, but any cooking disasters will be a lot more expensive!

Trial and error is your guide here. If you’re making bud butter, you might go through a few saucepans full of cabbage before the butter is green and smelly enough to be useful for cooking. It’s a good idea to note down how much you’ve used so you know for next time.

How To: Make Spicy Chipotle Marijuana Burgers

This spicy grilled burger recipe is one of the few instances where I use actual ground bud in the recipe. With so much else going on flavor-wise, it blends right into the burger mix. Quick, easy and no need to make butter, oil or concentrates. Smoky chipotle chiles can add heat as well as flavor, so add more or less than the recommended amount depending on your tolerance for burn. Makes 4 burgers, 1 burger per serving.

 

1 1/2 pounds semi-lean ground beef

1 1/2 teaspoons minced garlic

1 or 2 canned chipotle chiles in adobo sauce, minced

2 grams finely ground bud

2 teaspoons dried oregano

1 teaspoon Dijon mustard

1 teaspoon chili powder

1 teaspoon salt

3/4 teaspoon black pepper

4 slices Jack cheese

4 hamburger buns

Salt and pepper to taste

Assorted burger condiments

 

Place the ground beef, garlic, chipotle chiles, ground bud, oregano, mustard, chili powder, salt and pepper in a large bowl. Use clean hands to mix until all ingredients are evenly incorporated. Divide mixture into quarters and form each quarter into a large patty about 1-inch thick. Season the outside of the patties with salt and pepper. Grill on a grate brushed with oil over a medium-high fire until done to your liking, about 6 minutes per side for medium. Top each burger with a slice of cheese during the last minute or so of cooking time. When ready transfer burgers to buns and serve immediately with your favorite burger toppings.

How To: Make Pot Brownies!!!

Ingredients:

- A couple grams of weed
– Any type of cooking oil besides olive
– Any basic brownie mix that uses oil
– Grinder (for weed)
– Coffee filter with screen
– Measuring cup
– Spoon/spatula
– Smallish pan
– Brownie pan

The Oil:

  1. Grind your weed to a powder. It’s important that you get it as ground up as possible so the most surface area is exposed. More surface = more cannaboids exposed = you get higher.
  2. Mix your powder weed with your oil. Put in enough so that the oil is able to cover the weed completely when you put it in your pan. The less oil you use, the more potent it is.
  3. Put the mixture into a pan for about 25 – 35 minutes until it’s almost at a simmer.
  4. Let it cool for a few minutes once it’s done. We’re almost done learning how to make weed brownies.

Filtering The Oil:

  1. Grab your filter that I told you to get earlier.
  2. Put your oil through the filter.
  3. Do it again.
  4. Do it a third time. We don’t want any left over weed as there’s no THC left in it and it’s gross if you eat it in brownies.

Baking Process:

  1. Mix in your oil to the brownies.
  2. Go back and mix it in a little more. It’s easy to get it uneven. If it’s uneven, there might be no THC in one brownie and TONS in another. We want them all to be even.
  3. Follow the directions on your brownie package.
  4. Bake your brownies. IMPORTANT: Do not cook your brownies over 325 degrees Fahrenheit no matter what the brownie package says. If you burn the THC, your brownies will be worthless and you will have wasted all your weed.

Why Should I Make Weed Brownies?

1) Weed brownies are delcicious.
2) You can give a weed brownie to someone who thinks it’s a regular brownie. This can be a teacher, parent, friend, or police officer!
3) Eating weed brownies is discreet. You can eat one in public and no one will care, although they may think that you’re fat.
4) Some say that edibles get you higher than regular smoking.
5) Potent weed brownies will glue you to your couch. This can also be a bad thing.

Mark Your Brownies!

I had an interesting experience this weekend. My oven is quite large, so I decided to teach my friend how to make weed brownies while I made regular brownies from scratch. The plan was to eat the weed brownies first, and then if we got the munchies, eat the delicious, from scratch, regular brownies.

Things took a turn for the worse. After 2 weed brownies each (my friend had learned how to make weed brownies effectively) we were stoned out of our minds, which was good.

As you might know, being high sometimes impairs your judgement. We went into the kitchen… and… STARTED EATING ALL THE WEED BROWNIES.

Halfway through the pan, we realized this. Uh oh. We freaked out for a second, then went along for the ride.

Essentially, if you don’t mark your weed brownies after you learn how to make weed brownies, you might eat them by accident. For us, we were in space for about 30 minutes and then literally could not stay awake. We tried getting up and moving around, it was impossible, we needed to crash and sleep. So we did.

We woke up 7 hours later… still high. Edibles last forever, and these seriously destroyed us. The good thing was that we were rested, so we just chilled, listened to music, etc.

We are regular marijuana smokers so we didn’t freak out, but if you are new and are learning how to make weed brownies for the first time, MARK THEM. You will waste weed and get too high if you don’t and eat them by accident.
