I hope everyone had a great New year. I know I did. My friend David Silverstone from Silver Dragon Cannabis came to visit and ring in the new year and boy did he bring some incredible party favors. Most unusual was the hand-made (by Juany_420) Rose Petal Wrapped Cannagar (cannabis cigar) that I am smoking in the photo below. This “cigar” lasted through an entire party, with lots of guests partaking, and there was still some left over. Inside was filled with premium Sour Diesel enclosed in hash oil painted rose petals and tied together with hemp wick. It was the ULTIMATE party accessory. David bought the unusual artisanal cannagar at this year’s Emerald Cup in Santa Rosa (my favorite event of its kind).

Marijuana cooking with concentrates, namely kief and hash, opens up a whole new world of recipes that can be converted to cannabis cooking. A lot of these recipes contain far less fat than ones that depend on butter or oil to carry the medication, an important consideration for those trying to curb calories or limit fats. Of course cannabis metabolizes better with some fat, but when you cook with concentrates, you eliminate the need to add extra oil or butter to achieve a proper dose.
When cooking for my own use, as opposed to developing recipes for others, I almost always use decarboxylated dry ice kief. I find that its milder flavor flavor naturally blends in better with more foods than the herbal undertones contained in marijuana infused butter and oil.

Dry ice kief is the easiest concentrate for home cooks to make. It’s also one of the easiest concentrates to cook with.
