Get High-Drated With This Cannabis Fruit Juice

Delicious, refreshing and infused with 100 mg of THC, this is no ordinary fruit juice!

These delightfully elevating drinkables are called Bottom’s Up and are brought to you by Black Weed Nation, a Proudly South African venture, with two delicious tropical flavours: Mango Orange and Strawberry Lemonade.

The Mango Orange is delicious and sweet but you can still taste the cannabis a little. The Strawberry Lemonade is fun and bitter sweet – it reminded me of those sours sweets-  with only a very subtle hint of the cannabis flavour coming through. I enjoyed both and found them both to be equally enjoyable.  

Each beverage is imbued with a secret blend of five different cannabis strains – a balance of Indica’s and Sativa’s to give you both a head and body high and they use only full plant extracts so you also get all the benefits of the entourage effect. The creators use only organically grown cannabis, so although perfect for recreational use, these drinks are so packed full of goodness that they double-up as super immune boosters!

as super immune boosters!”

We started marketing them as a recreational drink until someone who had bronchitis for over a month drank a bottle of Bottoms Up for three days and was cured,” says Black Weed Nation’s, Blitz, “We then realized that 100 mg+ THC in the drinks was the key to introducing South Africa to cannabis oil in a friendly, non-intrusive and attractive way.”

If you are using it to strengthen your immune system, Blitz suggests you get comfy and sip on your Bottom’s Up throughout the day and allow yourself to relax, rest and heal. “It’s also much easier to drink juice with such a yummy taste than it is to swallow FECO (Full Extract Cannabis Oil)”, said Blitz, “so now we have sick people ordering it to keep in their fridges and are sipping as they go.”

For recreational purposes, Blitz recommends experienced cannabis users drink the whole bottle in one go, (Bottom’s Up!)  however for novices, he recommends three sips and then wait 20 minutes before continuing,The delivery system into the blood stream is efficient and more effective than anything smoked and does not give you that pukey feeling that give you if you consume too much edibles.”

Oh, and you will get the munchies big time!”

And he wasn’t lying!

Both my hubby and I partook of the juices to see if it would affect us differently. After about half an hour we both felt the affects start coming in. The strength of the high increased in waves for about another half an hour, stepping up both in intensity and enjoyment. Hubby and I spent the afternoon feeling extremely chilled on the couch together while we cried laughing to old movies we Netflixed and stuffed ourselves with everything we could lay our hands on.  It was a great way to spend a Sunday! 

“You become a porn star
with no inhibitions”

cannabis drinkableAlso of Special Note, Blitz tells me, is its abilities in the bedroom, “You become a porn star with no inhibitions…and all your pleasure hormones in the body flow freely, think multiple orgasms and heightened sensitivity. It’s hard to describe until both of you drink the drinkables together – you may even end up breaking the bed. Its that good.”

So, if you’re in the mood for a fun, lifted day or if you need to strengthen your body or beat the flu, Bottom’s Up provides all the goodness of cannabis without any of the unpleasant bitter taste.

 

We have basically created a premium product to compete against the best indoor, moonrocks or dab available. Drink a bottle of Bottoms UP and see for yourself” 

Fortunately Bottom’s Up also comes in a reusable swing-top bottle that is child proof, so you won’t have any accidents!

If you like the sound of these awesome products, then you’ll love that Black Weed Nation are also launching a cannabis infused ice cream range this Spring!

Review: Healthy & High

Most edibles are dripping in unhealthy sugars and processed carbs so I was delighted to come across a delicious and healthy edible that was not only nutritious but also packed with 25mg of THC.

 This tasty treat is called High King (I only got the pun once I was actually high! ) is a CanDu Kitchen  creation. Packed with nutrition, this seed bar provides your body with all it needs to sustain  you and the generous dose of THC helps keep you energized and motivated.

If doing household chores usually makes you feel like slitting your wrists, then this seed bar is your salvation!

Energising and uplifting, the high came in subtle waves of increasing intensity  and it took about an hour for me to feel the full strength of the THC which made me feel nice and relaxed but not lazy.

I would definitely recommend this for a playful social gathering, perhaps a picnic or a stroll through the veld with some friends – whatever you decide to do, you’ll feel good doing it!

Cannabis Terpenes and Cooking: How To Make Edibles Taste Like Your Favorite Cannabis Strain

Cannabis terpenes mean you can now make your edibles taste like your favorite strain of cannabis.

Pineapple Express infused cookies that actually taste like pineapple express (and not the familiar, generic flavour of chlorophyll)? Could it be possible? With one of the newest offerings in the cannabis market, cannabis terpenes mean there’s now a way to capture the flavor of your favorite strain in your edibles.

What are Terpenes

Terpenes are the fragrant oils that give cannabis its aromatic variety. They’re what give  Tangerine Dream it’s soft citrus notes , Sour Diesel its pungent fuel flavour and  Maui Wowie its sweet tropical aroma.

These oils are secreted in the flower’s sticky resin glands – the same ones that produce THC, CBD and other cannabinoids. And just like cannabinoids, terpenes bind to receptors in the brain and give rise to various effects – some can enhance your high while others can improve the pain reducing qualities of a particular strain – they each have their benefits.

Not all terpenes are food grade and therefore not all terpenes are edible. So, when I discovered a company that made food grade cannabis terpene profiles I couldn’t contain my excitement – finally I had a way of creating edibles that actually tasted like the strains I had used to infuse them with – oh the possibilities! True Terpene Profiles from Natural Terpenes produces liquid cannabis terpenes profiles which have been carefully blended to replicate the aromatic flavour of the strain they are named after. These terpenes don’t contain any THC but are known to assist your high and your health in various ways.

It comes in a little child-proof plastic container. Inside the container you get a tiny little bottle full of potent terpenes and a nifty little dropper to help you meter out your dose.

Choosing The Best Terpene Profile For You

 Choosing the Terpene Profile that is best for you can take a bit of research – different terpenes provide different benefits – some help you sleep, some help you eat, some help relieve pain, etc. Alternatively you can simply go with a strain you are familiar with or one who’s aroma you are really fond of.

For me it was Granddaddy Purple. I had some home-grown Granddaddy Purple (GDP) which I was enjoying immensely and which I wanted to use in some edibles. I’m also familiar with the aroma of GDP so I wanted to see if the liquid True Terpene Profile had successfully capture the floral notes of this strain and lastly, but most importantly, I wanted to try the effects of GDP”s blend of terpenes.

I was not disappointed. With light floral notes and a hint of sweetness the smell was intoxicating and I couldn’t wait to try it in food!

What Terpenes are in Granddaddy Purple

One of the dominant terpenes found in GDP is Linalool. (Say it, it’s fun!) Linalool provides those soft, fresh floral top notes – it also helps with the feeling of deep-ease and relaxation.

Linalool is used for a variety of reasons:

  • True Terpene Profiles Cannabis terpenes flavour flavor foodAs a sleep aid

  • A relaxant

  • As a treatment for anxiety

  • A pain reliever

  • As an anti-depressant

  • Anti-inflammatory

  • Anti-epileptic

  • AntiC-psychotic

The next most prevalent terpene in GDP is Humulene. Like Linalool and Myrcene (also part of the GDP terpene profile), Humulene is a powerful anti-inflammatory, is pain relieving, and has anti-cancer properties. It also works as an appetite suppressant, so it helps reduce the munchies.

Cooking with Cannabis Terpenes

cannabis infused icing sugar
One way to get the right cannabis flavour into your baked goods is to infuse the icing with the terpenes.
  • Don’t overheat the terpenes! The most important thing to remember about terpenes is that they are very delicate and can be destroyed easily with heat. For this reason I wouldn’t recommend using them in foods where they need to be added at the beginning of the heating process, as with cookies or cakes., as the wonderful aroma will probably not survive the baking. 
  • Raw foods, salad dressings and sauces are all great places to use Cannabis terpenes in your edibles or, alternatively you can add the terpenes at the very end of cooking once the heat has been turned off.
  • Dilution is essential! It’s a very concentrated solution so you need to dilute it. Think essential oils and you’ll get an idea of the potency of these profiles. If you don’t dilute it sufficiently it can have an overwhelming flavor that is too strong to be pleasant – always start with one drop and work from there.

Cannabis Infused Terpene Flavoured Chocolate Recipe

Infuse your chocolates with the delicate terpene profiles of your favourite strains.

I love, love chocolate so it’s no surprise that’s it’s also my favourite medible. I decided to try infusing chocolate with cannabis extract and to flavour it with the GDP terpene profile. The combination results in a delicate mixing of the GDP floral undertones and the rich chocolate flavour. Perfect as an after-dinner dessert.

Ingredients:

Dilluted Terpenes

1 drops of True Terpene Profile of your choice

25 gram coconut oil

Add one drop of your chosen food grade Terpene Profile into the coconut oil and mix thoroughly. You won’t not use all of this for this recipe but it will keep in a sealed container in the fridge.

Cannabis Flavoured Chocolates

100 gram melting chocolate

1 tsp of Terpene infused coconut oil

2 rice grains FECO (add more or less depending on your personal tolerance)

Method

Gently melt the chocolate – use the double boil method to prevent the chocolate from overheating.

Once the chocolate is melted switch off the heat and add the FECO oil and the terpene infused coconut oil and stir in very gently until thoroughly mixed. (Don’t stir too vigorously as this can also damage the terpenes – they are a volatile bunch!)

Pour into moulds and refrigerate until they set.

Then eat. Wait. Relax. Enjoy.
