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!

The Cooking Underground – A Sneak-Peak into South Africa’s First Cannabis Cooking Class

Curious about what a cannabis cooking class might look like? Take a quick peak at South Africa’s first cannabis cooking class….

It wasn’t your average Wednesday evening for six brave residents of the Dolphin Coast. They were off to a clandestine cooking class at a secret location.

Usually, when attending a cooking class, worrying about the police arriving unexpectedly is not a big concern. However, when that cooking class is teaching you how to learn the basics to safely and effectively make your own cannabis oils, it suddenly becomes a factor.

Of the group of six class members – five were women. Two of the ladies admitted that their husbands had wanted to attend but were too scared of the police to come – these six souls were brave indeed!

For this reason, I kept the location of the class a secret and only revealed it to the members just before the day of the class.  I wasn’t really expecting the cops to come banging down the door to our illicit class, but I prefer to err on the side of caution to be safe.

I deliberately kept the class small to keep the atmosphere relaxed and to ensure everyone had a chance to ask questions.

The aim of the class was to equip each person with the knowledge and skill to comfortaby make and use cannabis concentrate oil (FECO/RSO) and cannabis infused coconut oil. These are the basics when it comes to using cannabis as medicine or in food. With these two basic skills these people would be well on their way to effectively self-medicate and begin their journeys towards superior health.

The evening was fun, informative and uneventful -no blue lights and screaming sirens, instead we laughed, we shared, we learned. And by the end of the class there were six more people in the world capable of making their own cannabis oil and infusions…
