halloween weed edibles & recipes

Making Halloween Edibles

Marijuana edibles are some of the most potent means of ingesting cannabis, and quite the adult party favor at any Halloween Party! Just make sure your guests are well informed and prepared. For connoisseurs, they can be a real hoot. But for newer consumers, it can be a little intense. 

Step 1: Cannabutter

Cannabis butter, also known as cannabutter, is a primary ingredient when infusing edibles. Most edibles on the market use some form of cannabutter which produces the high that most people want. 

Cannabutter is the beginning point of your edible making journey. You're going to need a lot of flower for this step, so save on an ounce of weed to start your process.

When making cannabutter:

  • Use high quality cannabis as a plus
  • Use fatty, high quality butter (avoid using fat-free butter or margarine)
  • Grind your cannabis (Not too fine)

Shopping List For Cannabutter

  • 1 ounce shake (make sure to grind and decarboxylate)
  • 4 sticks of butter
  • 2 cups of water
  • A non-sticking baking sheet
  • Cheesecloth (or coffee maker)
  • Airtight glass jar
  • A big pot

When you are making your batch of cannabutter, it is recommended that  you use a 1:1 ratio of marijuana flower to butter. If this ends up being too much for you and want milder effects just use less marijuana. 

Your Basic Instructions For Making Cannabutter

  1. Grind All Your Flower Up: Use a grinder or your hands to break down the flower to have an even consistency. You don’t want a fine powder in the end.
  2. Decarb Your Buds: Start by Preheating your oven to 245ºF. Use a baking sheet and put loose, ground buds on it. Let it heat for 30-40 minutes. Every 10-15 minutes, stir the flowers slowly to expose all the flower buds to heat.
  3. Let Your Butter Melt: Put your stove on a low heat. Melt your 4 sticks of butter in a saucepan or slow cooker. Add 2 cups of water, this helps to regulate temperature.Add Your Cannabis Into The Mix: When the butter finishes melting, feel free to then add the decarbed marijuana.
  4. Let Your Mixture Simmer: Set the stove between 160-200ºF, let your mixture simmer on low heat for 2-3 hours. Don’t go any higher than 200ºF or you risk burning off precious cannabinoids from the mixture. Never let it come to a full boil.
  5. Strain Your Mixture: Put your cheesecloth over the jar. Then pour your cannabutter mixture through the cloth. You can throw away any plant material left behind.
  6. Refrigerate Your Final Product: The last step, put the jar of butter in your fridge. Allow the butter to solidify before cooking with it. Usually just overnight.

How Much Are Edibles

How Much Are Edibles

Posted by CANNASaver on Friday, 19 August 2022 in Canna Blog - Latest News

Cannabis is not all about smoke and fire, there are ways to make your next high smoke-free. Edibles come in many different flavors, shapes, and sizes and are a great, non-discreet way of consuming cannabis. But are they cost-effective? How much are edibles compared to other marijuana products?

A Guide to THC Edibles

Edibles are a widely available solution to engage with cannabis in a vapor-less form. Taste the wide-ranging culinary creations infused with cannabis and get a sense of the flavors you enjoy in everyday foods and snacks, that pair well with cannabinoids. 

Deals on Edibles

Types of Edibles

There are plenty of savory snacks to choose from, like: 

  • Cookies

  • Brownies

  • Tinctures

  • Dissolvable packets

  • Gummies

  • Hard candies

  • Chocolates

  • Teas

  • Sodas, and more.

How Much THC Are In Edibles?

Colorado State Regulations mandate that (recreational) edibles come packaged in no larger than 100 milligrams of THC doses with identifiable portions. The most common measurement is 10 mg in a bite. Most products will be portioned out or have a clear dosing schedule on the label. 

The exception is for tinctures and syrups which can run up to 1000 milligrams of THC in a bottle. These infused liquids will also have a measuring syringe so you can achieve the precise dosing you desire. Most single-serve drinks such as soda pops or lemonades are dosed at 10 milligrams of THC in a bottle.

What does it all mean though? What is the best bang for your buck?

The Most Cost-Effective Type of Edibles

Tinctures and syrups are the most potent and cost-effective way to ingest THC.

By volume, strength, and price, syrup, or tincture will be the strongest type of edible you can get! These are liquids infused with THC and CBD and have the highest concentrations. The flavors are pretty good and usually resemble a sweet concoction to help this medicine go down smoothly. The activation times range from 10 minutes to 30 minutes and the doses are measured by syringe or capful. 

You can find up to 1000 mg containers from between $45 to $70 dollars. A 100 mg syrup can be found for as low as $15!

Drinks contain the least THC with about 10 mg in a bottle but are convenient and great for lighter social flights. 

Typical Prices for Other Edibles

For the pan-baked experience, there is a plethora of brownies, cookies, bars, chocolates, and stroopwafels which are doled out in 100 mg containers are the tastiest and most versatile option. These baked goods go from $6 for a bar of single-serving chocolate to an average price of $22 for a full 100 mg package of multiple cookies or chocolates. These offerings have a sufficient amount of THC in the whole package to remind you of your aunt’s space cake, but ultimately you can decide how many bites until your preferred high. 

This article starts off with the lightest infusions and saves the heaviest hitters for last.

Your taste buds will dance when a Cannabis-Infused Cola splashes over your tongue. There are many flavors to choose from such as classic, orange kush, root beer, blue razz, and purple passion. These drinks are at the higher end of the scale as far as milligrams per dollar but are great for first-timers and social buzzes. These drinks cost around $8-$10. Drinks are usually portioned at 10 mg of THC content, which is the lower end of the spectrum. You can also find bagged teas infused with cannabis. There are also strictly CBD drinks with no psychoactive effect. Those are a little cheaper. Thursdays are a good day to quench your thirst and coupons range from 10% to 25% off.

710 Deals

Posted by CANNASaver on Friday, 27 May 2022 in Canna Blog - Latest News

So your buddy ran up to you today and said, “710 is right around the corner! It’s amongst us!” Then decides to follow up with, “how are we celebrating?” You get so caught up in the moment you exclaim, “As crazy as we can!” Suddenly, you realize you have no idea what 710 even is. What did you just sign up for?

Worry not, up-and-coming canna-connoisseur, 710 is a fairly recent entry into cannabis culture. The culture surrounding marijuana is loaded with special terms which add spice and fun to the bigger picture of enjoying cannabis like 420. 710 is just the baby of the terms.

In the last several years, another day to celebrate marijuana arose to showcase the notoriety cannabis concentrates were becoming.  

Today, we are going to look at what exactly 710 is, the history behind the number, the tools you may need to celebrate, and how you can weave 710 into a unique smoking festivity much like the more known 420.

710 Cannabis Deals

What is 710?

While many marijuana lovers most likely know what 420 is, many don’t know about 710. 

710 is for cannabis concentrates as 420 is for marijuana bud/flower. The number is associated with dabbing and the enjoyment of cannabis concentrates such as wax and shatter. 710 makes July 10th the marijuana concentrate celebration day. 

You might ask yourself, “but why that number? 710?” It is kind of funny how simple that answer actually is.

710 spells “OIL” when looked at upside down.

Since legalization, marijuana extraction techniques have only continued to ascend concentrates into grand heights.

A Little History Behind 710

Sadly, the number, 710, has no clear-cut answer as to its origin.

710, as a term, might have emerged decades ago as a code for marijuana oil. It could be that hen the "Devil's Lettuce" was more frowned upon on a criminal level, those who wanted cannabis concentrates asked their dealers for "710," indicating their want for concentrates.

More likely, however, the code 710 has only been used in the last decade, starting in the mid 2010s. High Times mentioned 710 as an important holiday in 2014.

Ok, But Concentrates and Dabbing? 

Wax/concentrate is a widely accepted term for any kind of marijuana concentrate like wax, shatter, distillate, etc. They are considered “concentrates” due to having THC levels as high as 99%. Making them highly “concentrated” with THC. 

Marijuana concentrates come in many forms like wax, oil, shatter, live resin, and many others. They are made through special processes that extract extremely delicate cannabinoids without chemicals or harsh solvents.

Dabbing is simply the act of smoking a marijuana concentrate. You take a “dab” of marijuana concentrate (not much at all), heat it on a nail, and inhale much like hitting a bong through a rig. Vaporizers are also a big tool when dabbing cannabis concentrates.

What Is Needed To Celebrate 710?

710 is best celebrated with a hefty dab or two. If you are a consumer who is new to dabbing, a traditional sized dab is a pinhead size portion of concentrate which is consumed via a rig (small concentrate bong).

Dab tools are a must. They allow you to size out your dab and also keep you from burning yourself while smoking. 

A torch will be needed to apply high heat for the concentrate to combust, allowing for inhalation. E-nails can also be used to delete the torch-needing process though are typically on the pricier end.

Vape pens and other portable dab vapes are another incredibly popular way to dab. They make the process very easy and without so many parts. They also allow for temperature control which grants the control of smoke production and flavor while smoking.

Wax Concentrates

Kinds of 710 Concentrates You’ll Find

The best way to celebrate 710 is by consuming wax concentrates (and similar products). Here’s a breakdown of different concentrates.

Wax

Marijuana wax is typically softer than other concentrates. They can appear in many different ways in terms of texture, smell, looks, and color. Waxes come in variations like crumble, honeycomb, badder, and  budder. Wax can be up to 90% in THC content.

Shatter

Marijuana shatter is a harder and more fragile concentrate. The name shatter comes from its likeness to glass. Shatter is an amber-colored and translucent concentrate. 

Shatter can also come in a variation known as pull-n-snap shatter. This kind of shatter is much softer and more pliable making it easier to measure a precise dab amount to smoke.

Oil

Marijuana oils are a more liquidy, runny kind of substance. They typically come in a sort of syringe/applicator or vape pen cartridge. 

Live Resin

Live resin is the most delicious way to enjoy marijuana concentrates. The process is well-known for being the highest quality of marijuana extracts. The process of live resin maintains the fresh terpene profile of the original plant material. Live resin can also come in a substance known as sauce. In this form, the consistency of the substance is a watery texture packed with all the flavor you could ever want.

Distillate

A distillate is a marijuana concentrate that uses a refined distillation process. The results are a potent concentrate that can see single cannabinoids reach 100% purity. This makes THC distillates some of the more potent options out there.

So when your friend asks, “How are we celebrating?” You can tell them exactly how you want to celebrate with your vast knowledge of all kinds of 710 and dabbing. 710 is just another reason to celebrate cannabis and the culture it surrounds.

710 shines a light on the wonderful process of cannabis extraction and its leading players; wax, shatter, oil, distillate, and live resin.

Slowly but surely, pot prohibition is ending state by state. Usually, states start with okaying marijuana use for medical reasons. In June of 2018, that’s precisely what Oklahoma did.

That made it the 30th US state to allow medical weed use. In the first year, 7300 cannabis-related companies were licensed. Over 5% of Oklahoma residents are currently certified for prescribed pot.

As of yet, however, the government has not opened up the state for recreational use. However, the legislature did decriminalize possession for non-medical use. There’s still a fine, but no jail time for small amounts.

Let’s take a look at specific laws about Oklahoma medical marijuana. You should know particulars about licensing and possession.

Visitors to the state can get temporary permits. We’ll discuss that in more depth.

Then we’ll talk about the possibility of the state legalizing recreational in the future.

Lastly, we’ll show how you can save on Oklahoman prescribed pot.

Let’s start by detailing what the law allows.

oklahoma medical marijuana laws

What is OK in the Oklahoma Medical Use Law?

There’s something very significant about Oklahoma’s requirements for cannabis-consuming patients. That is that there are no qualifying conditions. All that is necessary is a doctor’s recommendation.

That’s unusual compared to other places with legalized medical marijuana. Other states, like Illinois for example, have a list of provisos for prescribing weed. Not so in Oklahoma.

So, what does the law stipulate?

The medical recommendation from a doctor must include written documentation.

There is a requirement that patients have to be at least 18 years old. Those younger than that need no less than two doctors to write recommendations. Underage applicants also must have the support of their parents or a guardian.

Only parents or guardians can pick the pot up from dispensaries for younger users.

Applications for all aspiring users are approved or denied within 14 days.

Cultivation of plants by and for patients is allowed. Though, like any other state that has legalized growing, there are limitations.

Caregivers can also be qualified to provide services. This benefits license holders who may be homebound.

Those applying to operate bud businesses must be at least 25 years old. They must also be state residents. All operations must be 75% owned by Oklahomans.

The fee for business licensing is $2500. It is non-refundable if the application fails.

Licenses, regulations, and administration fall to OMMA. That’s the Oklahoma Medical Marijuana Authority. They oversee rules and procedures for patients and caregivers. Further, dispensaries, growers, processors, and physicians fall under their jurisdiction.

The agency maintains a state website. There, patients and providers can apply for licenses. There are also links to streamline the process for personal and business applicants. And they give answers to frequently asked questions.

All medical cards are also registered with OBNDDC. That's the Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs Control.

The cost of each application is $100. For patients with Medicaid or Medicare, the cost is only $20. All approved medical cards are good for two years.

What About Out-of-State Weed Patients?

Medical-use patients with a card from another state can apply for a temporary patient license. That waiver is good for 30 days. The cost for a temporary permit is $100, the same as a residential certification.

With a temp license, visitors can shop at any certified dispensary within the state. They can also possess and grow ganja. But only for 30 days from the issuing of their permit.

In 2021, a move was made to amend the rules for visitors. The Oklahoma House of Representatives did pass a bill expanding temporary licenses to 2 years. But that did not pass in the senate, thus the temp license remains at 30 days.

Tourists cannot bring their own stash of weed into Oklahoma. Marijuana is still federally illegal and so transporting any across state lines is a crime. Out-of-state medical users must buy within the state.

How Much Medical Marijuana Can You Buy at a Time?

Approved state license holders can possess up to eight ounces of marijuana flower in their homes. At any one time, patients are allowed three ounces of weed on their person.

For concentrates the limit is one ounce.

Edible products cannot exceed 72 ounces.

Those cultivating cannabis can own no more than six mature marijuana plants. Additionally, they may have up to six non-flowering seedling plants. So, that’s a combination of 12 plants altogether.

Out-of-staters with a temporary med card have the same purchasing and possession limits.

The state decriminalized possession, but that doesn’t mean there’s nothing to worry about. If you’re unlicensed and are holding cannabis, there is some concern.

Those who don’t have a med license face a minimum $400 fine if found in possession of pot. That’s if they have no more than 1 and a half ounces of cannabis. More than that and the fine steepens, plus there’s the likelihood of jail time.

For businesses, there are limits to sales to individuals. Provisioning centers are prohibited from selling over three ounces of cannabis flower. Restrictions specify no more than one ounce of marijuana concentrate dispensed at one time. There is a cap of 72 total ounces of medical marijuana products.

medical marijuana regulations in oklahoma

Is Recreational Next for Oklahoma?

As of early 2022, there are two petitions to put recreational pot use on the ballot. If passed, the initiative seeks to also have convictions for possession reversed. It also would expunge criminal records.

Also proposed is a 15% excise tax on potential sales. Currently, there is a 7% tax on all medical marijuana sales - plus state sales tax.

Time will tell if Oklahoma voters go the way of other states and add a recreational weed option.

A Guide to the Different Types of Wax Dabs: What They Are and Why You Want Them 

As research into cannabis accelerates, thanks to changing public sentiment and subsequent legislation, companies are not only discovering new compounds, properties, and uses for this amazing flora, but they’re also finding new and exciting ways to process it for consumption, including various types of wax dabs. 

What Are Wax Dabs?

Although concentrates are thought to have been around since about the 1940s and dabs were first invented back in the ‘70s, this type of consumption remained relatively niche for decades. This was perhaps because dabs are considered difficult and potentially dangerous to produce, depending on the form of extraction used. 

Today, concentrates are considered to be an ideal way to enjoy the many benefits that cannabis has to offer in an incredibly potent, cost-effective way. 

Of course, there are a lot of weed concentrates to choose from, including distillates, oils, live resin, caviar, crystalline, wax, and more. There are also several different types of wax dabs. 

If you’ve heard of dabbing and you’re interested in giving it a try, here’s what you need to know to make an informed decision. 

What is Dabbing?

Even if you’re already familiar with other forms of cannabis consumption, such as smoking flower, ingesting tinctures, or sampling a wide range of edibles (candies, gummies, chocolates, baked goods, and even beverages), you might not have a good understanding of what dabbing entails. 

It starts with several different types of wax dabs, which can range from viscous oils to sticky sugar wax to creamy budder, brittle crumble, and hard shatter. 

If you know anything about cannabis plants, you know that the buds are covered with trichomes, which are tiny, crystalline structures that contain the hundreds of cannabinoids and terpenes the plant is known for. 

Dabs are concentrates created by extracting compound-laden oils from the trichomes using a wide array of processes. 

Common extraction methods involve the application of heat and pressure, washing in a water and ice bath, or via chemical processes involving solvents, like CO2 or butane, for example. 

Butane processing — used to create butane hash oil (BHO) — is among the most popular methods and is often used to create a range of wax dabs. The resulting substances contain incredibly concentrated and potent levels of cannabinoids, like psychoactive THC and terpenes. 

Whereas flower might contain about 10-20% THC, depending on the strain, dabs could have as much as 80% (sometimes more). This means that only a very small amount needs to be heated in a dabbing rig, creating vapors that are inhaled, in order to get the same effects of smoking a significantly higher volume of flower, for example. 

The Benefits of Dabbing

Before you start exploring the wide world of wax dabs, you need to understand that concentrates are incredibly potent. A little goes a long way! 

You should start with very small amounts until you understand the effects that dabbing will produce for you. Wax dabs deliver an intense experience you may not be prepared for, so it’s always best to start low, go slow, and work your way up to your desired effects. 

When you exercise caution and choose safe, tested products, you will likely enjoy several benefits with dabbing. First and foremost, you’ll get a lot of bang for your buck. Dabs may seem like they’re expensive compared to flower — especially for the small volume you receive — but because of their elevated potency, you’re sure to find that you get more for your money. 

In addition, you can get the same experience as smoking a blunt from a tiny inhale of vapor. It’s much quicker and easier than smoking, and you’ll enjoy immediate and substantial effects, such as relief, relaxation, and/or euphoria, depending on the product. 

If you’re worried about the potential health concerns and the social stigma of smoking, you want something more potent than edibles, you’re seeking fast, cost-effective options for relief, or all of the above, wax dabs could be a solution worth exploring. 

The next step is understanding what the different types of wax dabs are and what sets them apart from one another. 

Common Types of Wax Dabs

There are several forms of concentrates to choose from, but if you want to try dabbing, wax is your best option. Powdered kief or dry hash, for example, is not ideal for use with a dabbing rig, as getting it onto the tiny nail to heat it is challenging, to say the least. 

Wax dabs come in a range of consistencies, from thick liquids to hard sheets. It’s always best to try different products to see which you like.

Here’s a quick rundown of the different wax dabs and what makes each one unique. 

Oil Dabs

Cannabis oils may be consumed in a number of ways, depending on how they are extracted and refined. These viscous substances can be used for vaping, turned into tinctures that you can consume sublingually or simply ingest, or made into oil dabs, which are a bit thicker and not ideal for vaping. 

One of the most common forms of extraction is a chemical process using butane, which produces concentrates of great potency. It also preserves terpenes, unlike some other forms of extraction. 

The instrument-grade butane used for this process is purified, pressurized, and delivered at extremely low temperatures, gently separating the oils from the plant. 

When the process is complete, any residual butane is purged from the oil to create a safe, pure product that contains concentrated cannabinoids, along with all of the terpenes that deliver the aroma and flavor of the plant — not to mention the full entourage effect. 

Another reason this method of extraction is so popular is that it creates opportunities for wax dabs of different consistencies, whereas some other methods are more limited in what they produce. 

In addition to BHO, CO2 and propane are other forms of solvent extraction. There are also several forms of solventless extraction (dry-sifting, freeze-drying, ice water bath, a combination of heat and pressure, and so on). Solvent extraction tends to generate the purest, most potent products. 

Sugar Wax Dabs

When you see sugar wax, you’ll understand how it got its name. The consistency is very much like mixing a small amount of water into a pile of sugar crystals. It is much like a sugar scrub you might use on your body, where the sugar is wet, but granular, rather than dissolved. 

Although it is mostly liquid, it is very thick and sticky. This makes it great for dabbing, as it’s easy to place a small amount on the nail head for heating. 

Sugar wax is most commonly made via chemical extraction (BHO), like many other types of cannabis wax. 

Budder Dabs

Budder is among the most popular forms of wax because of its smooth, creamy consistency, often compared to butter. It’s not quite as sticky as sugar wax, which makes it a bit easier to work with, particularly where portioning is concerned. However, it will still stay put when you apply it to the nail in your dabbing rig. 

Budder is sometimes confused with similarly-named “badder.” While the two are actually very alike, badder is slightly more liquid. 

How can you tell the difference? While budder essentially holds its shape, like cake frosting, badder is looser and it will slowly spread. 

There are many shades of wax between viscous oil and hard shatter, and budder and badder are just two of the in-between consistencies. 

Crumble Dabs

Also made from the BHO method of extraction, crumble is far less wet and sticky than some other types of wax. As you can imagine, it gains its moniker from a drier, more brittle consistency than creamy budder. 

Crumble is not entirely dry like a powder, though. It still retains some moisture, making it similar to a crumbly cheese, like feta, cotija, or goat cheese. 

In other words, you can easily flake it apart into smaller pieces, but the crumbled bits themselves will more or less hold together. 

While budder is often considered to be the happy medium between wet products like oil and drier products like crumble, you may find the dry end of the wax spectrum easier to work with. 

It all depends on your personal preferences, which is why it’s a good idea to try different types of wax to discover what works best for you. 

Shatter Dabs

This BHO product is hard and brittle, like spun sugar, although it’s most often compared to a sheet of glass. It’s called shatter because you can break it into pieces, either by snapping off a corner or simply smashing it. 

Shatter is smooth, solid, stable, and easy to store, which makes it ideal for anyone who plans to make their supply last for a while. Although it’s not quite as easy to dab as budder or stickier products, it does have the distinction of being among the purest forms of concentrate available. 

With so many types of wax dabs on the market and so many appealing benefits associated with dabbing, there’s no reason why you shouldn’t consider giving dabs a try. Just make sure to start slow if you’re new to dabbing so that you can ensure a positive and enjoyable experience!

Fall Weed Strains

Posted by CANNASaver on Sunday, 31 October 2021 in Canna Blog - Latest News

Well, hello again boys and girls. 

As Halloween has slipped right on past us, we arrive briskly at yet another colorful late autumn season. 

Holiday feelers are most certainly in the air, can you feel them? 

Smell them? Taste them? What if we could smoke them?

As the holiday stoners that we are, we have to celebrate robustly! 

After all, what’s the fun in smoking without a theme? Exactly.

Marijuana Strains With That Fall Feeling

Let’s take off our Halloween costumes and look at some strains we absolutely believe will slip you into the fall season just like that pumpkin spice latte you had earlier. Admit it!

Here are our favorite fall weed strains.

Apples N Cream

Just like sipping on a warm cup of apple cider or biting into a piece of that holiday apple pie, Apples N Creme is a strain that could be deemed a dessert itself. 

With genetics from strains like Acapulco Gold, Grape Pie, and Fruity Pebbles OG, Apples N Cream will fill you with warmth.

A whiff from this strain is known to have apple/grape, creme, cinnamon, and pine notes.

Cherry Pie

Another lil’ sweetie pie of a strain, or should I say, Cherry Pie of a strain. 

Cherry Pie is a tasty cross of Durbin Poison and Granddaddy Purp. The combination of the two makes a 70/30 hybrid that is creative and relaxing at once. You’ll feel great for social gatherings which is perfect for your holiday needs. 

The high from Cherry Pie usually lasts for 3+ hours and will have you singing the song by Warrant the entire time.

DogWalker OG

This one is great for, you guessed it, taking your dogs for walks with or walks in general. 

It has a little bit of “pep” in it.
With an interesting name, DogWalker OG has a typical skunk smell and earthy classic taste. The cross is between Albert Walker and Chemdawg. 

The high feels tingly with a warm spread of euphoria. Making this strain perfect for activity on crisp, don’t-want-to-leave-the-bed fall mornings.

Ewok

Ah, yes. Everyone’s favorite little Star Wars Teddy bear. These little guys are adorable. 

Well, this warm and cuddly hybrid provides the perfect mix of easy-going vibes and buzzes of euphoria in your head. As the high progresses, Ewok will transition you slowly to more of a couch-lock high.

Gotta rake some leaves? Have a sesh on this strain, feel the buzz, get some work done, then relax as the hybrid does its thang.

Ewok is the cross between Alien Kush and Tahoe OG. This strain is known to allow tranquility to flow in your body easing any aches/pains you may have in your body. This makes this strain also perfect to combat anxiety, depression, and PTSD. 

Golden Ticket

I’ve got the Golden Ticket *Flute whistles*

Quite the strain name, eh? Must be good. 

This Golden Ticket is an evenly-split 50/50 hybrid with citrusy flavors and “skunky” smells. 

This strain is known to raise levels of creativity and will leave you floating in euphoria even on the coldest of autumn days. 

Jack Frost

Reminding us that winter is right around the corner by name, Jack Frost is a perfect strain for staying productive and funky inside.

As a descendant of Jack Herer, White Widow, and Northern Lights; expect nothing but the best. The delightfully tasting buds produce euphoria, energy, and inspiration for hours. 

Topped off with some ice-cold, trichome buds; Jack Frost will keep you going even if the weather out there is frightful.

Marshmallow OG

Time to get the cocoa brewing, Marshmallow OG is here to help sweeten your fall season. 

With lineage crossed between Bubblegum and OG Kush, how could you have ever gone wrong?

With sweet/nutty tastes, Marshmallow OG has sweet smells to back its namesake. This strain is mostly indica dominant with relaxing/happy effects with some munchies on the side. So make sure you have some actual marshmallows as well. 

Pairs well with those yams that your g-maw always makes during Thanksgiving.

Purple Punch

With all the food, we are going to need something to wash it down with. 

Why not with some Purple Punch.

Purple Punch is a 90% indica strain with THC levels of 25%. The two combined make for a high that is pretty darn stoney and incredibly comfortable. 

Though, maybe not for the newbies.

Vanilla Kush

When you’ve got things being baked, vanilla is essential. This season, give Vanilla Kush a try. 

A crisp cross of Afghani Kush and Hash Plant, Vanilla Kush has sweet flavors and “skunky” smells. Vanilla Kush is known to arouse, lift spirits, and allow users to fly with euphoria. 

On top of it all, Vanilla Kush typically clocks in at higher THC percentages. Give it a try!

White Buffalo

As a pioneer on the prairie, you are in search of your white buffalo, the rare find. 

White Buffalo is oftentimes hard to find strain. 

White Buffalo is a floral/earthy bud. 

The strain is an almost pure euphoric trance with a tornado of energy and delight. 

Maybe the perfect strain just before Black Friday.

Vaporizer vs Vape Pen

Posted by CANNASaver on Thursday, 28 October 2021 in Canna Blog - Latest News

We are incredibly lucky to have all sorts of devices that help us get the most out of our favorite buds. But for many, the rise of such devices can confuse consumers quickly.

Even with these bad boys existing for years, vaporizers and vape pens are often mistaken for one another. As a past budtender, I definitely have been asked probably thousands of times and it has gotten me confused when a customer is describing one of the products but calling it the others’ name.

With so many different marijuana devices appearing over the years, it may be good to check out the similarities and differences between vaporizers vs vape pens. 

The Benefits of Vaping

Some may not be into smoking flower straight from a bowl or even consuming cannabis, but are still looking for a healthier way of consuming cannabis

Well, vaping is one, for starters! 

Here’s why:

  • Easy to use: By simply hitting a button, both will provide more even doses of THC per session.

  • Less cannabis waste: Vaping typically requires less marijuana to get the kind of high you desire. Seshs are much more potent so will require less marijuana.

  • Cleaner hits: Vaping allows for more potent/cleaner hits. With no combustion, the vapor contains much fewer toxins per hit. 

  • Less smell: Marijuana flower often has a strong, skunky smell that some people cannot stand to be around. Vaping cuts out the smell by 60-75%. They put off more of a terpene smell.

Vaporizers Vs. Vape Pens by Definition

Let’s contrast these two ways of smoking by their definition, shall we?

Vaporizers

Vaporizers (dry herb vaporizers) are made up of a vapor pathway, a heating oven for the flower, a button for temperature/on and off, and a mouthpiece. 

They are small and handheld, though are bigger than vape pens. 

These devices pack a more powerful punch in terms of energy. Vaporizers use conductive heating which allows for even burning while vaping. 

Brands like PAX and Firefly are dry herb vaporizers.

Vape Pen

A marijuana vape pen has a defined thin, long design. 

This is why it’s known as a pen. They are made to be discreet. 

The majority of the device is taken up by the actual battery which warms the device. 

A body is there to fire the device and change temperatures.

Vape pens typically will need a cartridge (THC or CBD). The mouthpiece of a vape pen will come with the cartridge you purchase. A variable of the vape pen would be a disposable vape pen with the cartridge and battery all in one. 

When empty, you simply throw the device away. 

Similarities Between Vaporizers & Vape Pens

Now, it’s easy to get the two confused, and here are a few reasons why:

Portable

Vaporizers and vape pens are very portable. 

Being handheld, both devices are great for traveling, break times, or when convenience is needed.

Discreet

Vaporizers and vape pens are incredibly discreet. 

These devices don’t scream that you are smoking weed. This can be useful for some people.

Built To Vaporize

Fundamentally, both vaporizers and vape pens have a power source (battery). 

The battery allows the devices to heat a chamber/coil and vaporize flower, wax, oils, etc. 

Control Of Temperature

Both herb and oil vape devices have an assortment of models. 

Each one offers different temperature control ranges. Some are limited, while others provide a full range of settings.

Rechargeable 

Having lithium batteries, vaporizers and vape pens can be recharged via USB cable in most instances. 

The other type has removable batteries which go into a charging pack. 

Differences Between The Vaping Devices

So, as you can see, they are quite similar. However, here’s how you can distinguish between a vaporizer vs vape pen:

Type of Marijuana Product Vaped

The type of marijuana preparation defines the product you will want to use. 

Vaporizers are typically used for vaping actual buds. Vape pens are used when vaping THC oil cartridges. Though they do make wax/concentrate vaporizers so just be aware of what you are looking for.

Loading Process

With vaporizers, cannabis buds need to be finely ground up and placed into a heating chamber. You will also need to dump and clean out the chamber after each use. 

With vape pens, prefilled cartridges filled with THC oils can simply be screwed onto the battery. On the other hand, oil cartridges come in both pre-filled cartridges and ones you can fill on your 

Vaporizer Heating Chamber vs Vape Pen Cartridges

For the average dry herb vaporizer, a dry herb vape chamber will last forever. It gets packed and cleared similar to bowl packing. Oil vapes, on the other hand, require a battery equipped with a cartridge. Unlike chambers, the cartridge used in oil vape pens is interchangeable and replaceable.

Maintenance of Devices

Both devices are easy to maintain. Charging the battery will be the biggest thing to remember. The vaporizer will need the chamber cleaned out to keep the device vaping with good flavors.

Infused Dinner Party

Posted by CANNASaver on Monday, 25 October 2021 in Canna Blog - Latest News

 

Well, folks, it’s official – fall is in full swing, the trees are changing colors, hot cups of apple cider flow like rivers into the mugs of eagerly anticipating people, this year’s outdoor cannabis crops have been harvested, trimmed, and cured.  

If you were one of the lucky farmers to harvest a crop this year then you have probably begun to wonder what to do with all that tasty sugar trim and leafy buds that weren’t quite pretty or full enough to make the top-shelf bud jar.  

We have a great selection of weed flower deals here at Cannasaver for you to check out if you’d like to stock up and fill your pantry for the long winter months coming.  

One of the best things about fall is the feeling when you get together with your best friends and family for a tasty meal.  

Sitting around the living room and making jokes, playing games, eating delicious food with one another, these are the types of activities fall is best for.  

We at Cannasaver decided it would be a great idea to throw a cannabis-themed dinner party for just such an occasion.  

In this article, we’re going to tell you how to make cannabutter and oil to use in some of our favorite dishes that will leave you with a full belly and your head in the sky.  

The first step to creating a weed infused food dish is to extract your cannabis into something you can cook with.  

Here’s a method we love to use for making our weed butter for cookies, Rice Krispie treats, brownies, and other tasty weed treats and recipes.

First Step to an Infused Dinner Party: Making Cannabutter and Oil

The process to make butter we use includes two major steps.  

  1. The first is to decarboxylate your cannabis by baking it in an oven at 225 degrees Fahrenheit.  

This activates the THC, CBD, and other cannabinoids to be able to bind to your oil or butter.  

  1. The second step is to take the baked cannabis and infuse it into a source of fat.  

This could either be butter or your favorite type of cooking oil.   

Follow these simple steps to complete making your infused oil or butter.

  • In a medium saucepan on very low heat, add water and butter.

  • When the butter is melted, add the decarboxylated cannabis. 

  • Mix well with a wooden spoon and cover with a lid.

  • Let mixture gently simmer for 4 hours. Stir every half hour to make sure your butter isn’t burning. If you have a thermometer, check to make sure the temperature doesn’t reach above 180°.

  • After 4 hours, strain with cheesecloth or metal strainer into a container. Let the butter cool to room temperature. Use immediately or keep in the refrigerator or freezer in a well-sealed mason jar for up to six months.

This butter method is tried and true to make some of the dankest, potent butter to be used in any number of recipes.

So now that you’ve made your butter or oil, it’s time to get to work planning a menu.  

We’ve made a sample one for you to take a peek at for some recipe inspiration or just to use for your own infused dinner party.  

So here we go, Chef, let’s dive into our version of a nice weed infused dinner party.  

Infused Dinner Party Recipes

THC Infused Margaritas

To make this drink you’ll need to pick up some THC-infused tincture to concoct this tasty beverage.

(Check out these deals on tincture).  

  • Place 1-2 cups of ice cubes in a blender.

  • Scrape 4-8 tablespoons of honey (warming the honey slightly in the microwave can make it easier to pour and distribute) into the blender along with the ice.

  • Squeeze 2-3 large limes for their juice, and add the resulting juice to the mixture in the blender.

  • Free-pour in the alcohol to reach the level of strength you desire in your margarita. Blend sufficiently until smooth. Chill margarita glasses while mixing. 

  • Dampen and dip the rims in salt if a salted rim is desired. Slice the fourth lime into thin half-slices, and put a small notch in the flesh of each slice so that it can be easily slipped over the rim of the glass.

  • Distribute margarita mixture into glasses and grate a small amount of lime zest over the top of each portion. 

  • Add your dosage of THC or CBD tincture and enjoy while they are still frosty!

Get Baked Mac and Cheese

This isn’t your granny’s classic baked Mac and Cheese, but it will taste just as good.  

For this recipe, you’ll need to use some of the weed butter you made earlier. 

Here’s the list of ingredients you’ll want for your dish:

1/2 pound elbow macaroni

6 tablespoons cannabutter

 1/4 cup flour

 3 cups milk

 1/2 cup yellow onion, finely diced

 1 teaspoon cayenne (optional)

 1 large egg

 12 ounces sharp cheddar, shredded, divided

 1 teaspoon salt

 1 teaspoon ground black pepper

1 cup panko bread crumbs

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

  • In a large pot of boiling, salted water, cook the pasta to al dente.

  • While the pasta is cooking and in a separate med/large pot, Add the melted cannabutter. Whisk in the flour and keep it moving for about five minutes over very low heat. (Do not let it boil or simmer) Make sure it’s free of lumps. Stir in the milk and onion.

  • Temper in the egg. Stir in 9 oz of grated sharp cheddar cheese. Season with salt and pepper. Fold the macaroni into the mix and pour into a 2-quart casserole dish. Top with another 3 oz of grated cheese of your choice.

  • Melt 3 tablespoons of cannabutter in a saute pan and toss the bread crumbs to coat. Top the macaroni with the bread crumbs. Bake for about 30 minutes or until topping is browned.

  • Remove from the oven and rest a few minutes before serving.

  • Serve up your Dankaroni and Cheese and enjoy! 

Weed Brownies for Dessert

If you and your guests have made it through the margs and mac and cheese and want to finish your meal with some tasty treats, we’ve snagged a recipe for some really dank brownies to make and share with your guests.  

These are great too because if people are already too high, brownies make great take-home treats.

Here's what you’ll need to make your brownies:

8 tablespoons (1 stick) cannabutter, plus a little softened butter for the pan

3 ounces unsweetened chocolate, roughly chopped

1 cup sugar

2 eggs

1/2 cup all-purpose flour

Pinch of salt

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract (optional)

Chocolate chips (optional)

To cook the brownies just follow these simple steps :

  • Heat the oven to 350°F. Grease an 8- or 9-inch square baking pan with butter or line it with aluminum foil and grease the foil.

  • Combine the butter and chocolate in a small saucepan over very low heat, stirring occasionally. When the chocolate is just about melted, remove from the heat and continue to stir until the mixture is smooth.

  • Transfer the mixture to a bowl and stir in the sugar. Then beat in the eggs, one at a time. Gently stir in the flour, salt, and vanilla. Add chocolate chips. Pour and scrape into the prepared pan and bake until just barely set in the middle, 20 to 25 minutes. 

It's better to underbake brownies than to overbake them. Cool on a rack before cutting. 

  • Top the brownies with your favorite ice cream or a glass of milk and enjoy!

These are just a few suggestions of things you could prepare for a weed infused dinner party.  Our recommendation is that you and your friends do a “Pot-Luck” where everyone cooks and brings their favorite weed dish to the party.  

Stay safe and enjoy!

Let it be known, 99 Problems is not for beginners.  

Afghan Kush

The awesome strain needs no introduction!

Afghan Kush is known for being a pure indica strain that can be traced for centuries. The strain is known for having body heavy effects which allow the consumer peace of mind and possibly a visit from the sleep fairy.

Afghan Kush manages sleeplessness in canna-newbies who might be more prone to paranoia when trying to unwind. This comes from the high yield of CBD in the strain.

With a homely earthy aroma and taste notes of old-school hash, Afghan Kush shows proud lineage through dense buds and many shiny trichomes.

Green Crack

Let it be known, you will not become a Dave Chappel skit. Green Crack is only pure energizing sativa. No trace of crack here, whew…

Green Crack is the definition of pure energy, focus, and fun-having good times. Green Crack has incredible cerebral effects and maintains its awe through mouth-watering fruity/mango flavors. Green Crack is a great daytime strain helping fight fatigue and stress. Green Crack is extremely appealing to those needing to get stuff done and have fun doing it.

Grease Monkey

This is an Indica-dominant weed strain resulting from a cross between Gorilla Glue and Cookies and Cream marijuana strains. It is the highest THC percentage flower on our list, with a whopping value of 31%. This value can significantly vary depending on the growth conditions, as already stated.

Grease Monkey has a strong aroma of nutty vanilla and skunky diesel. When smoke, the high effect builds behind the eyes and then spreads to the rest of the body. It drives you to a euphoric high characterized by mental calming effects. Medicinally, this strain is a remedy for chronic pain, nausea, insomnia, loss of appetite, etc.

This is a tasty treat I was able to try recently. Almost as relaxing as ice cream on a hot day.

Ice Cream Cake produces large, dense nuggets of golden green. Ice Cream Cake is the cross of Animal Mints and Triangle Kush. The strain mirrors flavors of vanilla for pure delight. The aroma is a classic skunky one. You can expect your sesh to encounter body relaxation and ease you into dreamland. 

Jungle Cake

Ohh! More cake! Just remember, in terms of marijuana, anytime you see cake...get it!

Jungle Cake is the cross of the strains Wifi and Wedding Cake. The strain struts in with light smells of sugar/frosting with pungent fuel.

Jungle is also another on the list to reach up to 30% THC potency. The strength ensures a lasting, powerful high.

Sour Diesel

And last, but most certainly not least. A legendary favorite. Sour Diesel, the popular sativa that just doesn’t slow down. Sour Diesel is a perfect addition to a day of adventure. Sour diesel is a long-lasting strain that will leave you stress-free and relieve any pains you may have.

Being a 90% sativa dominant strain, the high you will feel from Sour Diesel can help you access hallways of creativity. This strain is typically pretty high in THC being between 20-25%. Sour Diesel is rich with citrus flavor and robust gassy smells. The strain is known to help anxiety, depression, and fatigue.
