I Want My THC!! Marijuana, Hemp, Public Perception and Wellness Products

medical marijuana inc, the hemp network, sales, approval, therapeutic products,

Medical Marijuana, Inc will begin to sell CBD and non-THC Cannabidiol products as health and wellness products in the United States in August of 2011. These products do not contain THC and therefore don’t carry a risk of addiction and abuse for those who use medical marijuana for what others perceive to be purely social enjoyment.

The first lines of products are to be distributed to more than two thousand health and wellness centers throughout the United States as well as direct to consumers through the Hemp Network, a division of Medical Marijuana Inc (www.thehempnetwork.com). The products will be available in a CBD tablet, CBD capsule, and CBD-infused beverage line, all which carry the health and wellness benefits of CBD cannabis extract.

The Hemp Network Mission Statement says they’re great people who are out to promote Hemp through education and political awareness. The Hemp Network is also a division of the company Medical Marijuana, Inc so “the Network” is in place to raise awareness and creation reception for a product that will be manufactured/distributed by Medical Marijuana Inc.

That’s so win-win..or is it?

Medical Marijuana, Inc is also in negotiations with Europe and China in hopes of getting distribution deals as more and more people become receptive to the idea that hemp is beneficial and profitable. The same can be said about marijuana; I wonder if this group’s hemp products actually offers some therapeutic benefits or if it’s merely an association game to exploit the buckling medical marijuana market since the Feds pulled that bullsh*t last week.

In June, Medical Marijuana Inc also acquired a 50% stake  in Cannabank, a patient recommendation clinic. They seem to be moving toward controlling public perception and offering information to those seeking alternative therapies.

This is big and I’ll definitely keep you posted. Once the marijuana industry starts to maneuver strategy like standard businesses do, we may have a chance at getting legalized weed. However, I also see corporate exploitation and trickery but for now who knows so let’s all just stay tuned…

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 Cannabis Carmel Couch Lock Crunch Bars

These cannabis caramel bars are a hearty treat, but don’t expect to move once they’ve kicked in. Couch-lock is almost certainly a guarantee.

caramel crunch bars Cannabis Caramel Crunch Bars

Ingredients:

  • 1½ cups rolled oats
  • 1½  cups flour
  • ¾ cup brown sugar
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ cup melted cannabutter
  • ¼  cup melted butter
  • (topping) ½ cup brown sugar
  • (topping) ½ cup granulated sugar
  • (topping) ½ cup butter
  • (topping) ¼ cup flour
  • (topping) 1 cup chopped nuts
  • (topping) 1 cup chocolate, chopped

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 375°F.  Using a large mixing bowl, combine your oats, brown sugar, flour, salt and baking soda.  Add your cannabutter and plain butter and then stir until the texture becomes crumbly.  Set aside one cup of this mixture for later use with the topping.

Now grease a 13 by 9-inch baking pan and press the remaining oat mixture into the bottom of it.  Bake this for about 10 minutes, or until lightly brown.  Remove them from the oven and cool for 10 minutes, being sure to leave the oven on.

While the bars cool, you can begin making the caramel topping by stirring the sugars and butter together in a heave sauce pan.  Heat the concoction over minimal heat until bubbling and then allow to simmer for half-a-minute.  Remove from the heat and cool until tepid; now stir in the flour.

Finally, top the oat base with chocolate pieces and mixed nuts, then drizzle on the caramel topping, followed by the 1 cup of uncooked oat mix sat aside earlier in the recipe.  Place back in the oven for an additional 20 minutes (or until the caramel bars are golden brown all over). Cool once more, cut and enjoy!
