With the new-school herbal crowd, there is a renewed focus on both the art and experience of herbal life. Here are three new and popular ways you can expand what you are doing:
Cooking with herb as an ingredient has become its very own unique culinary specialty, and if you like spending time in the kitchen, it’s time to give it a try. On Higher End Goods, we have several cookbooks to get you started. Wake and Bake contains more than 50 recipes, complete with photos, playful commentary, and simple methods. Are you off dairy? Gluten-free? Vegan? No problem. You’ll find cooking and baking recipes for whatever your dietary habits may be.
If you’d rather stick to baking infused sweet treats, check out Edibles: Small Bites for the Cannabis Kitchen. This tasty collection of more than 30 bite-sized, low-dose recipes is perfect for bakers of all skill levels. Spiced Superfood Truffles, Strawberry Jam Pavlova and more, are all brought to life with vibrant photography in this cannabis cookbook.
The variety of strains that are available today is staggering. Some strains are created to highlight specific properties or terpenes, and there is more diversity in aroma, taste, and effects than ever before. Keeping a journal (or scorecard) helps us to focus our sampling efforts, refine our tastes, and keep track of what we’ve tried. No need to create your own system, just pick up The Cannabis Taster Notebook, made by Goldleaf. This attractive pocket journal was designed for the adventurer. It features guided entry pages and graphics that help you document the flavors, effects and experiences.
Spa and Skincare
If you live in an area where infused products are tough to get (or you consider yourself a bit of a DIYer) then get a copy of The Cannabis Spa at Home by Sandra Hinchliffe. It provides easy-to-follow instructions on how to create more than 75 spa products like lotions, bath salts, emulsions, and even edible treats like luscious spa nosh. All of the recipes can be prepared in a basic home kitchen, and are free of preservatives and major allergens.
They say variety is the spice of life. Try new things to elevate your experience, and you’ll be amazed at how enjoyable it could be!
