    I came up with oatmeal fried chicken while stoned, and my pico de gallo chicken salad. The trick whilst stoned is to have healthy, tasty munchies around. For example, dehydrate some fruit chips for yourself, use cottage cheese as a dip. Or my favorite, though not as healthy, take those same fruit chips and make yourself a nice chunky fruit sangria salsa and dip away. That one goes over good at parties, but it's more complex. You need to let the sangria soak into the citrus fruit chucks seperate and then add the apple, pear and other fruit chucks when serving. Preserves their texture and taste so the dip doesn't just taste like a mush of wine and fruit.

    In line with that, if you keep the salsa citrus/other oriented you can take fruits like apples and pears, ones with good sturdy structure to them, cut 'em up into thick slices and use them cracker like. cover the top with one half cottage cheese and one half sangria salsa or just plain fruit salsa to keep it healthier, and you've got great finger food.

    OR, you could get yourself some smoked salmon and make a mousse with it. Throw it in chunks into a food processor, start processing and add heavy cream or some healthier alternative until it's at a mousse consistency. Then add some spices to taste, whichever ones you want, raw or toasted. Serve on whole wheat Ritz crackers, or you can use it to encrust a broiled fish like bluefish, snapper or flounder bits. Take some cubed chunks of blue, put a dab of mousse on top and maybe even top that with another fish like flounder, some spice, then broil them real quick and again, perfect finger food. Throw some low fat cheese over it during the end of the broil to melt it good if you like too. Comes out great.


  2. Working out whilst stoned is something quite enjoyable (Not for the novice user). Feels great hitting some heavy bench. Would recommend an energetic sativa type smoke to combat lethargy though.

    yeah, high quality herb with few metabolites, just the active compound. fire weed. i use to have a fantastic connection, economical, too.

    CDB: what's wrong with heavy cream?

    i would actually make marijuana meals. i would make a "tadka", in indian cooking this is a flavorful herb and spice infused fat, mixed with a low GI legume (like yellow split mung beans) over rice. i would use the traditional clarified butter (ghee) and work the powdered marijuana (crushed in a mortar and pestle) and then the herbs and spices. for fire weed i would use herbs that relax the CNS, they would add to the mental effects of the marijuana. it would enter slowly, build to incredible heights and last literally hours of pure cannabis consciousness power. very illuminating. great antioxidants, protective effects on the nerve cells (including the cannabinoids) and relaxing. not to mention anti-inflammation. eating it, cooked into the fats.. provided much more of a "heart high" than smoking. i think the active compounds were traveling with the fatty acids, or, the saturated fatty acids broken down into ketone bodies, into the heart. now, the heart being about two thirds nervous tissue by weight.. that was quite a consciousness raising experience.

    Nothing in my book, but some people may want something a little less heavy.

    Eating it makes it harder to judge the dose, my only problem with that. Unless you know the weed you're getting you could dose yourself too much. That's why all told I preferred smoking and munching on my prepared goodies.

    Good point. Other than the sativa/indica factor, I've found that lethargy is dose dependent. Taking smaller than normal dosages, still greatly increases blood flow and energy levels without negatively effecting overall stamina. For added pleasure, there's always NO-Xplode!

    i've discovered the exact same results as you . the smallest possible amount of weed smoked right before hitting the gym is definitely key. all the positives (energy, mood, blood flow) without the lethargy. i've been advocating this for years, back when i used to just down a ridiculously sugary cup of coffee instead of using the no-xplode. i find the energy lift from the no-xplode actually does much to combat the lethargy from higher doses, but i still prefer smoking less. best pre-workout combination available!

  7. Working out while stoned requires to get to the gym stoned(unless you're working out at home I suppose). Seems too much of a risk vs.reward to me.

    not necessarily. i find using it that way is actually useless, because it's a mood/energy lift that comes on almost immediately after smoking. this is also something an infrequent pot smoker likely wouldn't benefit from

  9. More power to ya. Just stay safe.

    So you either don't smoke.... or you don't drive well.

    I like to bust balls so don't take me too seriously.

  11. No, just happen to be a cop and a parent.

    the day i crash my bicycle or drop a 100lb dumbbell on my face will be the day i stop smoking pot before my workouts... it will also probably be the day i stop working out period... and the day i stop eating solid food for that matter...

    I understand your concern and would not want my loved ones put in jeopardy either. Like I said, I like to bust balls and I thought that was a good oppertunity for humor. No disrespect Jayhawk.

  14. None taken, I already had a debate with CDB. I understand where other people come from. I just choose not to.

  15. Jayhawk, it is nice to see an officer with a open mind, I know u r not condoning it in any way.

  16. I always didn't have one. It took talking to a lot of people and finally opening my ability to accept input. I still don't think it's a substance to be used but i'm by far a judge or perfect. I just tell people to weigh the consequences and always be safe when using any body or mind altering substance.

    That's a healthy attitude and refreshing to hear. It shows your not just a man behind a badge.

    I agree. Eating it makes the high much more enjoyable to me and that way I don't have to smoke, since smoking isn't my favorite thing to do.

  19. I could picture it now...... people in instant realization they dont have their belts on and they are speeding. they slow down and do the seat belt dance to get it on in a hurry. As they pass the officer they dont look, so as not to be obvious, and he seems to overlook their mistakes. A sigh goes out and the sweat is wiped from their heads, and the officer..... well hes on the good news pot heads thread at am. lol k im bored lol.

  20. Smoking before working out .. I just can't do that but after no problem. I tell you a good buzz is a monster drink or something like focus xt + weed. No lethargy but a great buzz.

  21. Grifter or anyone else, exactly how and what do u eat it with, I know it is done by grinding and mixing in with the all time great idea, brownies, but I have never tried it yet, I would have a hard time just grinding up my bag and pouring it in something, of course maybe I,m just weird like that......

  22. RipdnTxs,

    Best way to process any lipid-soluble herb into an edible product is by using an edible fat that's a solid at room or fridge-temps. (34F, etc).

    For instance, you could:

    • Take 1lb of butter, place it in large pot with distilled H2O, cover and bring to a boil.
    • When it reaches boiling temp, dump in your fat-soluble plant matter.
    • cover and bring down to a low boil for about 60 minutes, stirring occasionally.
    • Cool, and strain through a cheese cloth into another container, squeeze out the cheese cloth twisting and squeezing it until you squeeze out all the liquid.
    • You should reboil the plant matter for another hour in fresh dH2O, and strain with the same cheese cloth as described above.
    • Combine this 2nd extract with the 1st.
    • Discard the plant matter, as most of the necessary actives will be extracted
    • Place the pot with the melted butter/water into the fridge, cover, and leave it over night.
    • In the morning, your herb infused butter will be solidified at the top of the pot, scoop it out with a spoon. You can now use it to make your recipes.
    • Store it in an air tight plastic container in the freezer.
    • Generally, with lipid soluble herbs heating 'unlocks' more active components resulting in a much greater effect than if the plant were just eaten by itself. Also, extracting into the butter will result in no 'plant' taste in whatever you make with it.
    • You could go one step further with this and extract it into a monounsaturated fat, like flax or extra virgin olive oil. The separation will require a large separatory funnel, however as the these lipids are liquids unless brought to very low temps.


    You can make a sep. funnel out of a plastic soda bottle, or buy a real one on Ebay or any online lab/science supplier. IMHO its worth the extra efforts, as in addition to whatever benefits your herb of choice may provide, you'll have the added benefits of the healthy fat as well.

  23. I dunno why but I just got the munchies.

  24. Big V. how much water and did u mean a whole pound of butter or sixteen ounces of flax or olive oil ????

  25. Ripd,

    Really doenst matter how much water, at least enough to submerge the whole mixture.

    As for the amount of butter/oil to add, that doesnt matter either. Look at it this way, Potency = the ratio of amount of oil / the amount of herb. The more herbal product and the less butter, the more potent the butter. And visa verse.

    Now! Ive got to go make me some Cissus infused Flax Oil !!!
