Letter From The Editor

Recently, the DEA issued a statement reinforcing their position that cannabis has no medical benefit
whatsoever, consequently recommending that it remain a Schedule 1 drug. In response to their blatant lies
and attempt to save jobs and DEA funding, this issue we bring you the story of the Federal Marijuana patients.
We traveled to Oregon, one of our favorite legal cannabis states, where we were met with warmth, kindness
and open arms by our fellow colleagues in this industry. We had such an amazing time, it was almost
unnoticeable that we were on a mission to uncover the truth about the governments lies.
How is it that the Federal government says there is no medical benefit to marijuana, yet there are two
patients currently receiving medical Federal cannabis issued by the government? How are
their medical rights any different than anyone elses?
We learned that the Federal weed they are sending out is 8 years old, grown in 2009, testing
at less than 5% THC. While these patients had to sue the government in order to obtain safe
access to Federal medical cannabis, why is it that George W. Bush decided to shut down
the Compassionate Innovative New Drug Program so that no one else could ever legally
obtain Federal pot?
Additionally, we would like to point out how unethical it is for Federally employed doctors
and scientists to be sending out medical cannabis from nearly a decade ago. In case you
didnt know, cannabis loses 20% THC potency each year its stored, and thereby increases
in CBN levels. Its no wonder the cannabis tests at such low THC potencies. The quality of
the cannabis supplied from the Feds is extremely questionable.
Higher quality cannabis is available that is easier to obtain than from the Feds. As we
already know, marijuana has become legally and medically available in several states,
which makes the government weed almost a monthly souvenir to remind the two surviving
patients of the program of their legacies.

Nevertheless, the truth exists in the mainstream today. Share the knowledge and spread
the word. Anytime anyone ever says, Yeah, but its still a Schedule I Drug, now you can
educate them about the hypocrisy and let everyone you know understand that we are still uncovering so
many amazing facts and stories while continuing to make history together as an industry.

Edibles Magazine Issue 27

I encourage you to talk to someone new about cannabis, whether its your neighbor, your barista, lunch
waiter or family members. Every conversation is an opportunity to educate. Until cannabis is DESCHEDULED and off the Controlled Drug Substance List, we still have work to do.

current state of cannabis related legislation
and policy, on the federal, state, and local
Starting with the good news: Five states - Arizona,
California, Maine, Massachusetts and Nevada - are
going to have recreational cannabis on the November
Recent polls show favorable numbers for California,
Maine and Nevada, while Massachusetts and
especially Arizona face a tougher battle.
Prop 64, the California initiative (also known as
AUMA or the Sean Parker initiative) enjoys the most
favorable poll results, with 60% support among likely
voters. Unlike previous attempts for legalization in
California, the current initiative has a united coalition
behind it with organizations such as the Drug
Policy Alliance and Marijuana Policy Project, and
the initiative goes into more regulatory details and
creates the infrastructure that was missing in prior
legalization attempts.
Having raised nearly $8.5 million to support the
legalization efforts, with the opposition raising less
than $200k, and despite concerns from the cannabis
industry claiming it will have a negative effect on
medical cannabis and pave the way for a Big Tobacco
style takeover, signs point to a successful passage of
the initiative.

On a less positive note, the DEA has decided to keep

cannabis as a Schedule 1 drug, citing the need to prove
medicinal properties. The irony and hypocrisy has not
been lost on the cannabis community, with a new viral
campaign designed to draw attention to #6,630,507,
a patent titled "Cannabinoids as antioxidants and
neuroprotectants", which was issued to the US
Department of Health back in 2003, and describes

The flowering of new TV and film productions is having a
budding flare as the top producers are lighting up the small
and big screen with cannabis programming. Since the
groundbreaking television series Weeds originally had
its debut on the Showtime network eleven years ago, the
canna-business has been consistently growing, changing,
and evolving at an exponential rate. It seems that more and
more each day, the mainstreaming of cannabis is becoming
a reality. As we experience a matter of fact presentation
of life in home entertainment that just happens to involve
a bit of infusion, well be further paving the path toward
acceptance and legalization.

and sale of marijuana. After a year of residing within
the secretive society of cannabis cultivators, Brady

aspects as California transcends into legalization.

Something very exciting happened on July 26th of this

year. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) finally

The Proof weve been lied to

Keiko Beatie, Staff Editor

Elvy Receives Federal Government Prescription Cannabis Since 1988

Elvy Musikka!? Who she is, and why you should know who she is if you consume medical
Elvy Musikka resides in Eugene, Oregon, where she is close to her son and his family in a quaint
downtown apartment. She lives near an abundance of stores and restaurants in a place with
small town energy that makes you feel right at home. Here we are, in a recreational state about
to unveil to many in the community and industry of cannabis, a clandestine aspect of our United
States Federal Government. A subject of which information has been squelched, scenarios altered
for secrecy, and an appearance of cover ups galore as... Elvy has been receiving free medical
cannabis for 28 years, from (shhhhhhh) Uncle Sam!

How did this secret program get initiated into our Federal Government? The Compassionate Care
Investigational New Drug Study program began after Robert C. Randall filed a lawsuit against
the Food and Drug Administration, The National Institute on Drug Abuse, the Department of
Justice, and the Department of Health, Education & Welfare. Robert was afflicted with glaucoma,
a degenerative eye disease and had made a wise calculative move to make reference to the
Common Law doctrine of necessity to argue against charges of cannabis cultivation because
it was deemed a medical necessity. This is the case of United States verses Robert Randall in
1976. After the trial and presentation of evidence on November 24th, 1976, Federal Judge James
Washington ruled in Randalls favor in a major landmark case. The first medical cannabis
prescription in the United States since the 1930s was written, and Robert headed over to the
local pharmacy to fill his prescription.
The second person to be admitted to the IND Program was Irvin Rosenfeld back in 1982. Irvin has
a rare degenerative bone disease from a very young age and was in his freshman year at college
when he tried cannabis. He discovered by smoking cannabis he was able to sit for more than 30
minutes, which was virtually an impossible feat with his disease. With an analytical mind and I

Edibles Magazine Issue 27

Elvy, along with Irvin Rosenfeld are part of the Compassionate Care Investigational New Drug
Program, also known in short as: Compassionate IND. First started in 1976, it is a United States
Federal Government-run program that allowed a limited number of patients to use medical
cannabis grown at the University of Mississippi. The program is not available to any new patients,
as it was dissolved in 1992 under the jurisdiction of President George W. Bush. During its time,
they had about 30 participants at its peak, and upon closure they had 13 active participants.
Twenty-eight patients sadly didnt make the active participant level as their applications did not
make the cut-off date of the federal program. It is administered by the National Institute on Drug
Abuse and at this time there are four known surviving patients who were grandfathered into the

Barbara Douglas and George McMahon are eligible
to receive their medicine, but are not able to find a
physician who would be responsible for their patient
care. They would require a Doctor whom they would
see twice a year and sign up to distribute the Federally
approved prescription. Speaking of the prescription,
the cannabis medicine is rolled into joints and packed
into a metal canister in increments of 300.
Interestingly, after the cannabis was harvested in
Mississippi, it was transported to Raleigh, North
Carolina and freeze dried. A canister of joints that Elvy
recently received was dated from 2009. In most cases,
when tested it was shown to have a THC content of 3%
to 5%. So for those of you, who complain about your

to provide his patient care was suddenly offered a large grant for
a government research project. Offers like this dont come along
for research physicians and the doctor left the IND Program,
which left Randall high and dry. Musikka has had scrutiny,
arrest, and a litany of harassments occur. As for Irvin, he has
a different outlook, that his life is an open book and he is just
seeking to receive his medicine and if they need to watch him
then go right ahead.

well. She began growing at her home in Florida and
definitely felt the benefits.
Elvy first heard about the program after she was
arrested for growing cannabis and she received a
call from Robert Randall in mid-1988. He introduced
himself and shared with Elvy how their debilitating
medical condition of glaucoma was so similar and how
he was receiving medical cannabis from the U.S. Federal
Government. She decided to sue to have access to the
IND program and won, so on November 17th, 1988,
Elvy went to her local pharmacy to fill her prescription
for 320 marijuana cigarettes every month.

She speaks each year at HempFest, the festival held in

Seattle, Washington now running twenty years. With
attendance at over 120,000 hemp/cannabis friendly
supporters, it is one of the largest gatherings in the U.S.
celebration of the culture and lifestyle of cannabis. Of
course to those in attendance, Elvy is a treasured icon
and heralded by all once she graces the stage. She is
known to break out in song, as she does consider
herself a musician. She autographed her album for
us when we were spending time in her apartment
in Eugene, Oregon. Elvy is also part of Patients Out
Of Time, a non-profit organization that focuses on
education about the medical attributes of cannabis with
continuing education accredited classes. She speaks at
least once a year to appreciative nurses, doctors and

Cocktail with Rocks on the Rim to

of a debilitating case of glaucoma, an
operation was necessary in the early
80s which left her right eye clinically
blind with no hope to regenerate her
eye-sight. Elvy felt she needed to find
something to save what sight she had
remaining. Ever since she first started
smoking cannabis in 1975, she has
been comfortable with infusing. She
found it helped her keep balanced with
her daily life and little did she know I


Elvy would like for us to realize that we all have the

power to change the laws, as for the past 28 years she
has lived as an open cannabis consumer. But on the
other hand, she has had her phone tapped and her life
scrutinized for her actions. Is she breaking the law?
Absolutely not! But she has been harassed, scrutinized,
arrested and threatened. At this time in her life, Elvy
would like acceptance and true freedom from this
scrutiny. Musikka says her glaucoma is under control
and reaffirms that her consumption of cannabis is proof
that it works as a medicine. No other pharmaceuticals
or aspirin are available in her home as medical cannabis
does it all for her.
Musikka considers herself a pioneer, patient and
activist. She is passionate that prohibition should not be

of Uruguay, where there are no rules or restriction on
the growth, distribution or consumption of cannabis.
Yes, Elvy is done with America and its hypocrisy of
medical cannabis by the U.S. Federal Government.
Advocates for legalizing cannabis either for medical
or recreational purposes say the program is a glaring
contradiction in the nation's 40-year war on drugs
maintaining the federal ban on pot while at the same
time supplying it. This is hypocrisy to the American
people. While we have 200,000 people in Federal U.S.
Prisons for simple possession of cannabis, yet the
same Federal Government has been supplying it to
needy medical patients for the past 40 years, starting
with Robert Randall who passed away in 2001. He

the U.S. Federal Government has truly

individuals. The Compassionate Care
IND Program should have never
been discontinued, just as prohibition
should have never been passed back in
the 1930s.
Government officials say there is
no contradiction. The program is
no longer accepting new patients,
and public health authorities have
concluded that there was no scientific
medical value to cannabis, as Steven
Gust of the US National Institute on
Drug Abuse was quoted stating to
The Associated Press. What are we,
as concerned citizens, missing in this
picture? Is this an entity speaking from
both sides of their mouth? Do they not
know what they are standing for as

Let us hope that the elections bring

Incredibles Vapes, Colorado


In this industry, vape pens are a dime a dozen, so we can agree you really need an
exceptional product to stand out right? Well the folks over at Incredibles recognized
this and set out to make a product truly worth raving about. Lets start with the fact
that they use 100% all natural, strain specific terpenes made by in-house cultivation
specialists. The reason thats great is because they know exactly which genetics their
whole plant extracts material came from, and they can guarantee nothing artificial
touched it. This really does make a difference when it comes to the end result, and
making sure you can reproduce that result consistently each time.
The oil has tested out at 150 mg, and with its beautiful honey like consistency and
color, it's easy to see how this pen won 2nd place in CO at High Times this year. Im
basically saying all of this to say that this pen is truly amazing. I have reviewed a lot
of them and this one stands out for the smooth potent taste, look, and flavor. Make
sure you go out and try one today. I


ButterNugg Cookies, California, D.C.

They are literally the greenest cookies Ive ever seen. I wondered what type of
dye was used to get the perfect color of a bright green Christmas tree cookie.
This is the butter cookie from the brand ButterNugg Cookies, and they really
live up to their name. If you love those rich, sweet, buttery smooth cookies
from the blue tin that they sell during the holidays then you will truly fall
in love with these delectable treats. Followed closely by the taste is the fact
that they are 75mg per cookie, which pretty much promises to float you right
through your day. These awesome little treats also come in limited edition
glassware with special artists sponsoring each run.

Daves Space Cakes are these adorable Double Chocolate

mini cake brownie bites that are small enough to fit right
in your standard cannabis pill bottle. Dont let the size
fool you though. They are so awesome because they not
only taste incredible, but they are also gluten free so they
are dietary friendly too. This Dutch inspired Skywalker
OG infused treat packs a punch, but because the entire
package is only around 15mg you can ensure that you
stay medicated the entire day without getting too stoned.

Orange-U-Glad, California

Ok, so I get this box of stuff to review, and Orange U Glad

is the first product my hand went to pick up. The blue
and orange comb on the packaging was one reason but
honestly it was because it had orange on the label and in
the name. I automatically assumed that they had infused
the orange flavor into chocolate, and I was incredibly
curious to see what that taste like.WRONG! It was even
better than that. Close your eyes and picture a round ball
of chocolate sliced like an orange. It has ridges on one side
like an actual orange peel. I dont know if its me or not but
I feel like they added an orange terpene scent, but there is
no orange taste in the chocolate. Let me know when you
try it guys if I made that up or not but either way I like
the whack and peel sticker and the bright orange foil
as the outer wrapper. It will be a guaranteed hit at all the
Halloween parties this year.

The container is child proof and comparable to the 7 gram

pill poppers available at every local dispensary. Pop the
top and take a whiff no, seriously you have to do it
when you try these. It brings back memories of when
you smell the chocolate throughout the house from fresh
baked brownies right before its time for them to come out
of the oven. Then they put them in these cute cupcake
cups so it looks like the perfect, delicious little goody. The unique way that its sliced sets it apart from any

for just a couple of years building a nice following. I
first tasted it at a Kush Expo at least two years ago and
recall the packaging needed some assistance. But now
at this time I can share that the Punch of milligrams and
the Kushy packaging are at the top of edible refinement.
They have strain specific gummy formulas of Indica,
Sativa and Hybrid in 100mgs and a T.K.O. version of
200mg. With a pre marked packaging of 25mg on the
inside of the box, you feel that Kushy Punch is bringing
responsible edible standards to the consumers. They
hand make each batch and extract through a 3-step oil
filtering process for maximum purity. The taste is fruity,
fun and an easy chew and not a teeth sticky consistence

taste the Kushy-ness!


Bakeons, Oregon

Ok, so this is one medicated product that really took me

a minute to wrap my head around. I am into healthy
alternatives (which is why I use cannabis in the first
place), but I had no idea what to do with these Bakeons
Bakeony medicated coconut flakes. Do you sprinkle
them on other products? Do you eat them alone? What
are the benefits? Then I just decided to pour them in
my mouth and see what magic happened next. They
almost remind you of a healthy chip or nut with the
crunchy consistency, but toward the end of the bite
the familiar texture of coconut meat begins creeping
in. Lets just cut to the chase and say that they taste
amazing. They have this smoky flavor that set them
apart from any of the traditional coconut flakes you
find in the grocery store.
The fact that this is made with sativa strains lets me
use an edible during the day that will not have me
too medicated and unproductive. I have managed
to put these in everything just to see what favorites
they compliment and I have used this for ice cream,
cake, pie, and even on top of my breakfast cereal. This
product is vegan, gluten-free, allergen conscious, and
organic. All winning qualities in my opinion. Seriously,
weve been asking for healthier alternatives and the
producers have been listening, so lets support Bakeons
by going to today.

Canna Pearls, California

With so many new products coming out every week it is exciting to see something truly out of the blue. Or out of the
oysters of the sea as Canna Pearls. This caviar appearing item is small, round, little spheres of cannabis oil in a Boba
type ball. Available in 10 or 25 milligrams, in which you may coil vape, place in a pipe or pop like caviar. I tried the 25
mg along with other friends of different levels of tolerance. One friend had 75mgs, what can I say a high tolerance
We were all hydrated, on an empty stomach and in a safe environment. It turned out to be a wonderful experience for
all of us, a gradual build and a mellow uplifting sativa afternoon made the time with friends even more enjoyable.
It does come packaged with a coil heating vape battery or you can purchase the containers of Canna Pearls on their
own. One of my new favorite products! I

was Hemp Seed oil in them and what a difference as the absorption

and when waking up the next morning my skin felt like it was supple
and soft. The other topicals were massage balm, tension relief, hands
feet and cuticles and a facial formula. I would have liked another type
of packaging as the style of the container was difficult to open, but well
worth the effort. It was great to see how fresh these all were by the date
on each container as well. All in all the natural ingredients, freshness
of product and simple clean packaging made getting to know Lacuna a

Juicing 101
Juice It Up With Cannabis Leaves

Edibles Magazine Issue 27

Keiko Beatie, Staff Editor


One of the most healing benefits about

cannabis is drinking the juice extracted
from the cannabis leaves. But sadly
fresh leaves are not as readily available
to the masses as of yet. Raw cannabis
juice is one of the most effective ways
to ingest and a beneficial support to
health and wellness. The cannabis leaves
and buds are actually loaded with a
non-psychoactive, antioxidant, antiinflammatory, and anti-cancer nutrient
compound we know as cannabidiol
(CBD). As we look to unveil the amazing
properties of juicing leaves to further
prove to be a miracle superfood that
is capable of preventing and reversing a
host of chronic illnesses.

immune-regulating capabilities and since the human

body already contains a built-in endogenous cannabinoid
system of cannabinoid receptors, it is a perfect path to
receive these balancing properties. Inputting CBD from
cannabis may assist in normalizing the bodys functional
systems, including cell communication and proper
immune function. The way CBDs work is that they bridge
the gap of neurotransmission in the central nervous system,
including in the brain, by providing a two-way system of
communication that completes a positive feedback loop.

This unique two-way transmission system engaged by

cannabis CBDs mimics the bodys own natural two-way
communications system. So individuals whose systems
are compromised by autoimmune disorders, cellular
dysfunction, chronic inflammation, cancer cells, and
various other illnesses can derive a wide range of healthpromoting benefits simply by consuming CBDs. And one
The cannabis and hemp plant is of the best ways to obtain CBDs is to juice raw cannabis
technically just a vegetable with a highly leaves and buds. The endogenous cannabinoid system
medicinal substance. It has unique acts as a modulator in fine-tuning a lot of these systems, I



and if something is deranged biochemically in a persons

body, it may well be that a cannabinoid system can bring
things back into balance.
It has been a slow process as we move forward with
acceptance and education to recognize and accept that
cannabis has legitimate therapeutic value. Its frustrating
that the federal government continues to classify marijuana
as a Schedule 1 drug with no currently accepted medical
use. And as long as it remains classified in this way, most
Americans will never have the opportunity to experience
the healing potential of this juicing vital superfood. With
regret at this time the 50% of the public perception still
feel that the cannabis plant is just a psychoactive drug that
certain people use to get high!
So now that weve gone over what and whys let us discuss
the how to juice. Ive spent a lot of time juicing and have
utilized many types of juicers. Of the many out in the
consumer market they can be placed in two different
categories, mastication and centrifugal force. Essentially
you want to stay away from anything that has a heat
element, which is the centrifugal force. The reason why
we stay away from heat is because the heat destroys the
cannabinoids within the leaves and leads to a quicker
oxidation as well.

Raw cannabis leaves, not rinsed, should be stored in the

refrigerator or freezer in bags that extend the freshness
of vegetables. I would recommend washing the cannabis
leaves in water before juicing. Have purified water
available to add to the juicing as you will find there is little
moisture within the leaves. By adding a small amount of
water while juicing in a masticating juicer will assist in the
processing. The potency can depend on how much water
you add as well, so add the water sparingly as you dont
want your juice to get diluted. I

Edibles Magazine Issue 27

One tried and true juicer of the mastication extraction is the

Champion Juicer or a wheatgrass Juicer. I still have a hand
crank wheatgrass juicer and back in the days of studying
at Twin Lake Holistic College I grew my own wheatgrass
and would grind out my own juice. Oh those were the
days when I had the time and a simple life of a student.
Nowadays, when I have a bunch of fresh clean cannabis
leaves I use a Champion Juicer. If you have the luxury of
juicing from fresh buds, an everyday blender is a prefer
method as it is quick and easy and you are able to utilize
most of the plant products in the process.


Once you juice your leaves and if you have more than you want to drink
in a day you may freeze the juice. It may not the same potency, but it
will still have the some of the beneficial qualities. A great suggestion
with the extra juice is use an ice cube tray, fill the tray and store it in
a freezer zip lock bag while in the freezer. Then you may pop out a
cannabis ice cube anytime, or you may want to store the juice in the
refrigerator and drink throughout the day. With the pulp you may use
that to chew, make sauces, blended in a smoothie as there are still some
properties of nutrition to be ingested.
What happens once you drink the raw cannabis juice is different for each
individual. As we know each persons physiological make up varies.
Some feel immediate effects, of course being with no psychoactive results.
I personally have felt an energized sensation when drinking the juice. It
is as if I had a charge of natural energy and a continued zing in my step
for about an hour. It truly makes a great difference in your health if you
are able to ingest the raw cannabis juice on a continuous daily basis you
should feel the amazing benefits.
Raw cannabis does not provide acute symptom relief, but some have had
digestive issues bring immediate relief by dissipation of severe nausea
as well as subsiding issues from chronic ulcerative colitis and crohn's
disease. Others have has physical balance seemly restored and most have
dramatic results by drinking the juice over a four to six week plan. It takes
that long for plant cannabinoids to fully saturate the bodys adipose fat
tissue. Phytocannabinoids are stored in the adipose tissue, as are the fatsoluble vitamins A, D, E and K.

Edibles Magazine Issue 27

Now how to find an abundance of fresh cannabis leaves to pursue raw

cannabis juicing? Purchasing the leaves can be quite costly, but if you
have the space and the correct Doctor's recommendation for a medical or
a recreational state, you may grow and grow organic. Its not that simple,
as growing is a finite task, which takes dedication and keen knowledge
of the plant. Purchasing the leaves from a large cultivation when the
plants are in the right time of the grow cycle is another way. With that
being said it is imperative that it be
an organic grower that does not have
any pesticides applied at any point
in its life cycle. Make sure there are
no toxic miticides. The main focus is
freshness as the fresher the leaves the
better the juice. If you have access to
fresh bud, and the budget to support
this bud-a-day regime, it may suffice
for maintaining general health. If you
have any acute illnesses, consider
juicing several buds a day.

properties of raw cannabis juice

through the CBD and CBD-A have potent inhibitors of

breast cancer cell proliferation, metastasis, and tumor
formation. The juice is an effective remedy for peripheral
neuropathy, which is a painful nerve disorder that afflicts
millions diabetics, people with AIDS and cancer, MS and
rheumatoid arthritis patients. Also, one important aspect
is that the chlorophyll from the green leaves assist in the
oxygenation of the blood system. The more oxygenation
within the blood brings more life force to the body.
From what we know, these compounds have medicinal
value and juicing raw cannabis may assist people with
serious health issues and other diseases. One advantage of
ingesting fresh raw cannabis is that youre getting most if

not all of the volatile terpenes, and plenty

of chlorophyll. Juicing raw cannabis juice
is a health-positive practice and as more
of us open up to juicing the leaves Im
sure more information and education
will become available. I hope that there
becomes a more conducive way to
have leaves become more abundant to
consumers to juice on their own, or even
an industry of cannabis juicing becomes
a new reality for the community of
cannabis lifestyle. Consider drinking
raw cannabis juice to support a positive

Queen Mary
Cannabis Event
Tomer Grassainy, Contributor

Edibles Magazine Issue 27

This year has seen an overwhelming

surge in cannabis events, from business
to business tradeshows, to industry
organizations, to consumer oriented
consumption events. With events
happening nearly every week, and
when many of the same speakers are a
part of multiple conferences, it becomes
harder for any event to stand out, or offer
something new.


Q) What are you hoping to achieve with this event?

I cant speak for my partner but my hope is that we
actually make a difference in the 2016 election. What that
means remains to be seen. Im an educator at heart. My
goal is to present a diversity of opinions so that we can
all learn and grow. Im still on the fence when it comes to
many issues including Prop. 64. I hope that we all leave

Infused recipes come from the kitchen of JeffThe420Chef

Fish tacos are a perfect dinner party meal. Not only are these really tasty (and authentic), but they
have the potential to knock your socks off if you eat more than two. There is also something really
rewarding about making your own salsa, so I included my cucumber-avocado salsa in this recipe for
you. Its the perfect complement to this dish.
1. Put the onion, cucumber, avocado, tomato, garlic,
cilantro, and jalapeo in a small bowl. Pour in just
enough red wine vinegar to cover well. Add a pinch of
salt, the lime juice, and the cannaolive oil mixture. Set
aside for at least 30 minutes.
2. In a large bowl, combine the flour, 1 teaspoon salt,
garlic powder, chili powder, and cumin. Sift together
well with a fork.
3. Season the fish with salt and pepper, then coat the
fish with the flour mixture.
4. Preheat oven to 340F.
5. At the same time, heat a large skillet over mediumhigh heat. Add 1 inch of olive oil. Gently fry the fish
for 3 to 4 minutes, then turn over and cook for another
2 minutes. Remove the fish with a slotted spoon and
drain on a plate lined with paper towels. Set aside.
6. Stack the tortillas, separating each with a slightly
dampened sheet of paper towel. Wrap in foil. Heat in
the oven for 5 minutes.
7. Top each tortilla with a pinch of shredded cabbage
and some of the cooked fish, then, using a slotted
spoon, top each one with the cucumber-avocado salsa.
Garnish with Lime-Chipotle Canna-Aioli (page 54), a
lime wedge, and cilantro. Dig in!

No vegetarian section would be complete without a cheeseburger, and I love the flavor of the
chipotle combined with the tarragon in this version. Top things off with some Candied Eggplant
Bacon (page 159) and Lime-Chipotle Canna-Aioli (page 54), and youve got a rockin veggie burger
on your hands.


1. In a medium pan, saut onion with light olive oil and a

sprinkling of salt and pepper until caramelized.
2. In a large bowl, mix together the caramelized onion
with the remainder of the burger ingredients. Using your
hands, mash and knead until everything is thoroughly
combined. Divide burger meat into 4 equal portions.
3. Oil your hands with a little olive oil and make patties
that are about 1 inch thick. Place them on a plate lined
with paper towel and cover them with plastic wrap.
Refrigerate for 30 minutes.
4. Cover the bottom of a skillet with olive oil. Cook the
patties 2 to 3 minutes per side until lightly browned.
5. Serve on whole-wheat buns topped with cheese,
Candied Eggplant Bacon , lettuce, tomato, and LimeChipotle Canna-Aioli for a complete experience.


For the burger:

cup sweet onion, diced
cup light olive oil
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 tablespoon cannaolive oil, plus 3

One of my all-time favorite dishes! I make 6 minis to snack on during the week. You
can also make one large souffl by placing all the blintzes on top of the melted butter
in a large baking dish. Then just pour the souffl mixture over the crepes and bake
for 1 hour.

Preparation time:15 minutes
Cooking time:1 hour
Approximate THC Per Serving*
10%: 7.7 mg
15%: 11.5 mg
20%: 15.4 mg


For the crepes:

1 cup milk
cup cold water
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon sugar
2 eggs, lightly beaten
cup creamy canna-butter, melted
and cooled
1 stick grass-fed butter, cold (you
wont use the whole stickits just to
grease the pan)

Edibles Magazine Issue 27

For the filling:

1 cup ricotta cheese
cup mascarpone cheese
3 tablespoons confectioners sugar
cup crushed pineapple, drained
1 egg


For the souffl:

1 stick grass-fed butter, melted
1 cup sugar
4 eggs
1 cups sour cream
2 teaspoons pineapple juice
2 teaspoons vanilla
Pinch of cinnamon
cup crushed pineapple
teaspoon salt


1. Blend together the crepe ingredients: milk,

cold water, flour, sugar, eggs, and canna-butter.
2. Heat a small nonstick pan on medium. Rub
the stick of grass-fed butter around bottom
and sides of the pan.
3. Pour enough batter into the pan to coat the
bottom. Cook for 30 to 40 seconds until the
batter sets. Shake gently to loosen. Flip, using
a small silicone spatula, and cook another 30 to
40 seconds. Transfer to a plate and repeat until
all the batter is used.
4. In a medium mixing bowl, combine cheesefilling ingredients: ricotta cheese, mascarpone
cheese, confectioners sugar, crushed
pineapple, and egg. Mix well.
5. Place 1 tablespoon of the cheese filling in
each crepe and fold the bottom of the crepe
over the filling. Fold in both sides and then roll
up over folded edges to create a closed little
blintz. Set aside and repeat.
6. Preheat oven to 340F.
7. Pour 1 to 2 tablespoons of melted butter
to cover the bottom of each of six 8-ounce
ramekins. Place 1 crepe in each ramekin.
8. Blend the remaining souffl ingredients:
sugar, eggs, sour cream, pineapple juice,
vanilla, cinnamon, crushed pineapple, and salt.
Pour the mixture over the crepes, filling each
ramekin three-quarters full. Bake for 1 hour
until golden brown and then serve.
*Approximate dose per serving is based on infusing
5 grams of cured/dried/decarbed cannabis into 1 1/3
sticks of butter. I


Kale is one of the only leafy greens that can actually benefit from sitting in the fridge with the
dressing on. Other salad greens will wilt almost immediately, but kale can actually marinate and
soften. This means it can also be dressed in advance and left to sit before being served, if you so
choose. This salad is paired with other vegetables that will hold up well to marinating.


Number of servings: 8
Approximate THC Per
10%: 3.8 mg
15%: 5.7 mg
20%: 7.6 mg


1. Heat 1 tablespoon of cooking oil in small saut pan and

add shallot. Saut over medium heat until golden brown,
remove from heat, and set aside.
2. Wash kale and cut out the tougher end of the stems.
With your hands, tear the kale into medium-large bitesize pieces. Place at bottom of large salad bowl.

1 tablespoon non-infused olive oil, for

3. Place garlic clove and salt in a mortar and pestle,

and grind until they form a paste. Put the paste in a
Mason jar and add the shallot, honey, lime juice, vinegar,

and pepper to taste. Top with crumbled cheese, and serve.

To Burn Calories
L.C. Squared, Staff Editor

The American Journal of Epidemiology

has published an article which
analyzes data from a survey of over
40,000 people, indicating that there
may indeed be a connection between
lower rates of obesity and smoking
cannabis at least three times a week.
The article states outright, despite the
evidence that cannabis use stimulates
appetite in clinical trials and laboratory
studies, cannabis users are actually
less likely to be obese than non-users
in the general population.

center of the brain. Cannabis essentially provides the

same relieving effects to this part of the brain as foods
that are high in sugar and fat. Furthermore, cannabis
has been medically proven to be beneficial to pain and
inflammation relief, stress relief and sleep improvement,
all of which are key factors to physical improvement.
Runners World has also published an article which
provides the testimony of an ultramarathoner named
Jeff Sperber of how cannabis has been integral in his
post-recovery routine. He states that he uses cannabis
as a preferred alternative to his prescription pain
meds which take a toll on his liver. He says that with
the painkillers, I cant do that stuff and function
as a normal human being. But with his prescribed
medical marijuana, he states, As a weed smoker, I
can function.

Doctors at the University of Mexico have published a

study which connects sleep and relaxation to weight
loss and fitness. Theyve found that high levels of
the adrenal hormone called cortisol, which is caused
by stress or lack of sleep can cause human fat to be
deposited into the abdominal area, which contributes
to obesity. The relaxing effects of cannabis obviously
counteract the risk of obesity by lowering cortisol level,
allowing users the sound sleep they need.


To support this provocative discovery,

the peer-reviewed journal Innovations
in Clinical Neuroscience suggests
that this may be due to the drugs
and food competing to satisfy the
hypothalamus, which is the reward

Drenon, published an article in the New York Post which

U.S. v. Burton

Mr. Burton, a glaucoma patient, argued his use of

marijuana was a "medical necessity." Testimony
was received from Burton's personal physician, an
ophthalmic physician who had researched marijuana's
use in glaucoma therapy, from his uncle who was
blinded by glaucoma, and from relatives and others who
testified to Burton's good character and work habits.
The jury refused to convict Burton on the felony charge
of marijuana cultivation with intent to distribute, but
found him guilty of simple, misdemeanor possession.
A Reagan-appointed federal judge, however, sentenced
Burton, a Vietnam veteran with no prior criminal
record, to serve one year in federal prison. Federal drug
agencies seized Burton's home, truck and farmland.
After serving his criminal sentence, Burton and his wife
fled the United States. The couple now live in Holland,
where Burton can legally obtain the marijuana he
medically requires.

Cases continued from page 60
State of Minnesota v. Gordon Hanson

A man suffering from epilepsy was arrested for growing marijuana.

At trial he argued his use of marijuana was "medically necessary" to
control debilitating seizures. Research neurologists from New York and
Washington, D.C. testified that Hanson's use of marijuana was medically
appropriate. The local court dismissed this medical testimony and found
Hanson guilty. On appeal, the Minnesota Supreme Court ruled that
"medical necessity" could not be used as a defense against criminalization
for marijuana cultivation. The ruling drew sharp editorial criticism from
many local newspapers. Hanson served nearly one year in prison. During
that time he had numerous gran mal and petite mal seizures.

State of Florida v. Kenneth & Barbara Jenks

Kenny Jenks, a hemophilic, and his wife, Barbara, were arrested in March,
1990 for growing two marijuana plants. They were charged with three
felony counts. At trial, however, the young couple revealed they both were
infected by the deadly AIDS virus, and argued that their use of marijuana
was "medically necessary" to control the nausea, vomiting and rapid weight
loss caused by advanced HIV-infection. The local court refused to heed
medical testimony from their treating physician and other experts and they
were convicted on all three felony charges.

Edibles Magazine Issue 27

In April, 1991, the Florida Court of Appeals reversed the lower court,
overturned the young couple's criminal conviction and ruled their use of
marijuana was a "medical necessity" in the treatment of AIDS. In October,
1991 the Florida Supreme Court upheld the Appeals Court's verdict and
ordered the prosecutor to file no further appeals in the landmark case.
State of Idaho v. Hastings
A woman afflicted by crippling arthritis was arrested for growing a few
marijuana plants. At trial she argued her use of marijuana was "medically
necessary" to control the debilitating pain caused by her arthritis. Her
treating physician, other patients afflicted by chronic pain and muscle
spasm, testified in her defense. The local court refused to consider the
medical evidence, but withheld judgement. On appeal the Idaho Supreme
Court ruled the defendant did have the right to "introduce evidence
relating to the common law defense of necessity". The Court ordered the
lower court to consider all evidence of Ms. Hasting's medical needs. At this
juncture the prosecutor dropped all criminal charges against Ms. Hastings. I

The One Month Mark of

Cannabis Industry

L.C. Squared, Staff Editor

Edibles Magazine Issue 27

The end of August will mark the one month milestone for six cannabis businesses
in Tallahassee, Florida, that had received their distribution licenses. Trulieve,
the first cannabis dispensary to open in Florida, has reported prosperity since
opening its doors back in July 26. Kim Rivers, the CEO of Trulieve, shares that
their clinic had received at least 500 calls on the first day from doctors who
want to prescribe cannabis and patients who want to take it.


The interest level is very high, and were in education mode right now,
Rivers explained. In Florida, there are a lot of specific criteria that patients
and doctors have to meet to use and prescribe medical marijuana. To register,
physicians have to take an eight-hour course on the use of medical marijuana,
and patients have to have a 90-day established relationship with a registered
physician before they can get a prescription.
So far, only three types of patients are allowed to use cannabis: Cancer patients,
patients who suffer from seizures and muscle spasms, and the terminally ill
who qualify under the Right to Try Act. In spite of these limitations, Trulieve
and other dispensaries are confident and hopeful that the upcoming November
elections will result in allowing more patients gain access to cannabis.
Were hoping to see the conditions continue to be expanded and for us to have
the ability to service even more patients, says Trulieve CEO, Rivers. There are
a number of patients and conditions that are not served by current legislation.
Though it has been a great first step, we hope to see more growth soon.
Someday soon, it will no longer be news that a dispensary opened up in a nonmarijuana friendly state. I I



Cannabis Dispensary
in Oak Park, Illinois

L.C. Squared, Staff Editor

On the west side of Chicago, the village of Oak Park welcomed its very
first cannabis dispensary, Seven Point, with the cut of a ribbon on the
morning of August 19th. Seven Points founder and CEO, Brad Zerman,
worked for two years by investing about $1 million in the dispensarys
construction as well as its legal fees, start up costs and licensing. Zerman
has expressed pride for his efforts and is excited to serve the community
as he has received much support for his endeavor.
"We have so many seniors that come by, whether they qualify or not, who
want to help their relatives," Zerman said. "We have chamber representatives
here and even representatives from Berwyn. I think the community
is a liberal one, and they've all been welcoming us with open arms."

On August 26, Seven Points will officially welcome visitors who carry
an official medical marijuana registry card. The dispensary is expected
to carry over 50 strains of cannabis in the forms of pills, oils, waxes,
concentrates, edibles and tinctures.
