Dab Review: Charlotte’s Webbing Cake from Sterling Gold Extracts

Sterling-Gold-Extracts-Charlotte's-Webbing-Cake-Review
This week I was very excited to review one of my personal favorite processors, Sterling Gold Extracts. They are the in-house extraction team of Liontree Farms in Southern Oregon, and these guys know what they are doing. When it comes to quality and consistency with their products, Sterling Gold Extracts hits the mark every time.
Charlotte’s Webbing Cake has a great 2:1 THC:CBD ratio with 44.8% THC and 23.2% CBD, beautiful color and clarity and a sweetness to the aroma. As expected with a higher CBD content, the consistency is a bit on the sap side, but on a cold morning it pulled and snapped just fine for me.
First dab I went with a nice low-temp nail for flavor. The sweetness and CBD mint combination was delightful, the taste of cake really does come to the palate. Second dab as usual, I went in for the big “Steve Size” dab to see what Charlotte had for me. With that nice 2:1 ratio, the inhale is really nice and smooth even on a higher temp nail, and the experience was just as smooth.
This concentrate really clears the mind in a soft and soothing manner. There was a perfect balance of effects to the head and body and I kept thinking how refreshed I felt with each dab. This would be great concentrate for anytime of day and for all levels of users.
I don’t normally crash weddings, but I’d crash Charlotte’s party for some cake any day.

Ingredients


 

1 cub cubed pumpkin

1/2 cub cubed Japanese eggplant

1 cup trimmed green beans

1 red pepper deseeded and cubed

1 cup chopped coriander

1 lime

1 tablespoon crushed garlic

1 tablespoon crushed ginger

3 tablespoons gluten free sweet and dark soy sauce

2 tablespoons cannabis coconut oil

Hot sauce to taste

 

Directions


 

1. Steam pumpkin cubes for 4 minutes and reserve

2. Heat oil in a large wok or frying pan and add the eggplant and tofu. Fry till crisp before adding the garlic and ginger and stirring to combine

3. Add the soy sauce along with the pepper and the beans and stir fry until cooked but still crunchy. Add the pumpkin and stir to combine

4. Turn off the heat and squeeze in the juice of half the lime and most of the coriander

5. Garnish with hot sauce, remaining lime wedges and coriander

 

The most important thing to remember is that the vegetables you choose must be fresh. Serve this with some quinoa or wild rice if desired. Dose yourself safely and be sure to have a non-medicated side dish to help you fill up so you don’t eat too much. Clearly labeling leftovers and medicated items is recommended.

Cooking with Cannabis – Pot Pizza

Pot… and pizza?! I’m not sure I can think of a better combination. This is it, guys. It’s all downhill from here. Until you eat the pot pizza, that is…

Ingredients

  • 1 prepared pizza dough (I recommend getting pizza dough from local shops – for example, Pizza Mondo here in Bend sells their dough and it is awesome).
  • 1 cup Cannabis Pizza Sauce
  • 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • 1/2 cup romano cheese, shredded
  • additional toppings as desired

Directions

  1. Prepare pizza dough in whatever way you prefer (oven, BBQ, etc.) If you are using an oven, preheating it to 400 degrees is the norm. Insider tip: When you’re preparing your dough, roll string cheese sticks into the outer edge to create your very own stuffed crust pizza! It’s outrageously delicious, especially if you warm the cheese sticks up a bit before you cook the dough to ensure they melt adequately.
  2. Spread Cannabis Pizza Sauce evenly on top of dough.
  3. Sprinkle cheese evenly on top of sauce.
  4. Add extra toppings as desired.
  5. Bake in oven for 18 to 25 minutes, or as desired, until cheese is golden brown.

Edibles for Patients with Dietary Restrictions

The exciting world of edibles tends to be… not so exciting when you have dietary restrictions. Luckily, there are other options for patients with dietary restrictions for creating edibles that will work for them. Here’s a guide to just a few.


 

Edibles for Patients with Diabetes

As you may have noticed, many edibles tend to be extremely high in sugar. Some recipes call for as much as 2 cups of sugar, whereas others require a much more diabetic-friendly 1/4 cup.

Because of this, alternative sweeteners such as agave, honey, applesauce and sugar free pudding are often used in substitution for sugar. Alternative sweeteners can come in many different forms – liquid and granulated, natural and artificial, like Splenda, which some folks don’t mind using.

Edibles for Patients with Dairy Intolerance

Dairy intolerance can make a patient unable to use products made with butter, milk or cream in the recipe. That could exclude ice cream, caramels and many baked goods from their options.

The easiest route to making edibles for patients with dairy intolerance is often to adapt recipes with non-dairy alternatives like oil or margarine, or a non-dairy milk in place of regular milk. A coconut oil-based cannabis butter would be an excellent substitution, as would coconut milk.

I bet you could even make lemon bars…mmmm….

Vegan-Friendly Cannabis Infused Edibles

Of course, the dairy substitutions can carry over here. However, you may also want to remove eggs from your recipes as well. This simple replacement would help patients who are vegan or unable to eat eggs due to other dietary restrictions, such as cholesterol concerns.

Try powdered culinary egg substitutes available in health food stores – I know for certain that Newport Market here in Bend sells one that a vegan friend swears by. You can also get yogurt made from rice or coconut – 1/4 cup of yogurt equals one egg.

Gluten-Free Infused Edibles

Gluten is found in wheat, rye, oats, food starch, and several other sources. It can be damaging to the digestive system in patients with Celiac disease, so having a few gluten-free options to your recipe repertoire could be a good idea.

Switching to other flours will be necessary – it may take some experimentation, but there are a few options such as rice and coconut flours, sweet potato and more. Health food stores tend to carry a multitude of varieties.

If you’re trying out a gluten-free option, just change your expectations a bit for what the dough will look like. Gluten-free items tend to have rather different textures than their gluten-filled versions.

 

Cooking with Cannabis – Chicken Soup

Who doesn’t love chicken soup? It’s the go-to comfort food for many folks, whether they’ve got a cold or they just need a tasty dish to warm their bellies. How could you possibly improve on this time-tested favorite? By medicating it with cannabis, of course, which can only serve to add to the medicinal and comforting benefits already prevalent in chicken soup. We found a tasty recipe for homemade marijuana chicken soup on the web right here, and we would love to share it with you. These proportions will make about 6 servings.

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon marijuana butter
  • 1/2 cup chopped celery
  • 1/2 cup chopped carrots
  • 1/4 cup peas
  • 2 quarts chicken broth
  • 1/2 quart vegetable broth
  • 1/2 pound chopped cooked chicken breast
  • 1 1/2 cups egg noodles
  • 1 cup sliced carrots
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 7 grams of ground marijuana buds

You can also substitute the ground marijuana buds with droppers of cannabis tincture – however, the dosage of the tincture will vary between product to product. 

Directions

  • In a large pot, melt marijuana butter over medium heat. Cook onion and celery in butter until tender, or about 5 minutes.
  • Pour in chicken and vegetable broths and stir in chicken, noodles, carrots, basil, oregano, salt and pepper.
  • Add ground marijuana buds.
  • Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer for 20 minutes before serving.
