My darlings, welcome to August. The month of glorious fruit, too much sun, and a lot of eating outside. I’m including a couple of recipes for your August – or anytime – enjoyment. These are great as you can tailor the amount you use to your needs, and no one has to be concerned about over doing it. I want you to have healthy fun and enjoyable medication, and these will do it!

                                 GREEN THAI PEANUT SAUCE

This is a fine sauce to have on hand; it can take sautéed vegetables and a little protein and rice to a whole new place. For about 2 cups, you’ll need:

½ C. natural peanut butter

2 whole jalapenos, seeded and chopped (leave in some seeds if you like it hot)

1 thumb-sized piece fresh ginger, peeled and chopped

2-3 large cloves garlic, peeled and chopped

1 Tb. sugar

2 Tb. infused peanut oil (try 1 Tb infused oil and 1 Tb. plain for smaller dosage)

4 Tb. Thai fish sauce (nam pla)

6 Tb. fresh lime juice

Toss all of the above in a blender and blend till smooth. Store it in the fridge and use on almost everything; I love it with chicken skewers or rice noodle salad – yum!

                                            GREEN KETCHUP

Ketchup is such a ubiquitous condiment, why not enjoy it medicated? This is delicious and a fine way to get your medicine. For approx. 1 cup, you’ll need:

1 Tb. infused oil, or 6 droppers Green Revolution Avocado Oil Tincture 1:20

1 small can (6 oz.) tomato paste

2 Tb. apple cider vinegar

½ C. water

1Tb. brown sugar

1 tsp. each salt, garlic powder, onion powder

½ tsp anchovy paste (optional)

½ tsp. Chipotle powder (also optional, gives a more BBQ flavor)

Whisk all of the ingredients together in a medium saucepan and bring to a low boil. Immediately turn it down to the lowest simmer. Cover the pan and cook anywhere from 30 to 60 minutes, just remember to keep the heat loooooooow. When it’s thickened allow to cool then store in the fridge – your hotdogs will say thanks!!

Huge Change

Recently I had to go to the emergency room for some internal weirdness. All is well now and things are ok, but when I got home (after 7 hours of looking at cute docs and me in my sexy hospital gown) I had a big damn realization. I need to be very aware of my internal workings because of scar tissue from past surgeries, etc. The (totally hot) doc asked me if I needed anything for pain and I said no. During the course of my stay he asked me probably four times if I needed anything for pain and I kept saying no. THIS IS A MIRACLE! I didn’t even realize I had done that till I got home and then I went….. damn. Historically I’ve been all about the pills, to the point of thinking about them and wanting them all damn day. I used to have a 3 drug rule when partying! Now thanks to cannabis I’m almost always pain free, I don’t need nasty pharmaceuticals, and I never look in people’s medicine cabinets anymore. Yes, I’ve done that – never took anything, but I can totally see how the pill thing can get out of control. With cannabis, I’m productive and happy and waaaay more chill. So now that things are opening up, now that we can start to think about seeing each other again, I just have to say THANK YOU to cannabis. No more pills, no more weirdness, just happy healthy healing. WAHOO!

Don’t Be Scared of Gettin’ High

This morning I had a long conversation with a dear friend facing a cancer diagnosis. She’s been on a ton of medication for a very long time for a variety of physical problems and is fed up with the pills. Her concern about cannabis though was one I hear a lot; i.e. I’m scared/nervous/embarrassed about using pot and getting high. Some folks still believe all the scary propaganda they’ve heard over the years and just don’t know how to take the first step. Luckily about half of the US has medical cannabis now, and if you live in an enlightened place you have access. But if a person still is filled with fear about being high, how to overcome it? Knowledge is huge here, and when people learn that cannabis can’t hurt you like opioids, or when they learn that it’s been medicine for millennia, that helps. But so many folks – who take pills and/or drink – are scared of being high. All I can say is it’s WAY better than being drunk…or in pain….or in a bad mood. Try the cannabis people – it will make you a happier, healthier human!
