Not very long ago, the use of marijuana was criminalized across America. In the past decade, however, the public has become aware of the plant’s amazing healing and medicinal applications. Because the industry is so new, there’s a lack of general knowledge about how best to use the herb to fight disease and ease pain.
In Fifty Shades of Green: Cooking with Cannabis, herbalist and natural healer Deborah Champlin gives readers a crash course in the beneficial uses of cannabis. She devotes much of her knowledge to offering readers a discussion of how the herb works in the medical context, how to prepare it for ingestion, and how to create therapeutic doses. She provides detailed information on weights and measures, as well as the tools and equipment needed to make elixirs and concentrates.
In Fifty Shades of Green, you also get a hands-on cookbook complete with recipes for everything from hot sauce and pesto to soufflés and desserts. With every dish, the goal is not getting high. Deborah focuses on the correct amount of cannabis needed to relieve pain, inflammation, and suffering. Dive into this lighthearted yet comprehensive look at one of nature’s most effective remedies.
