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…
