Plants have different chemicals and they are not all the same. For instance, lemons give you a boost and works well with the immune system due to the chemical properties it contains. A nice pairing of CBD and lemon would elevate a fish dish to an even better for you recipe. Or a nice cup of tea with fruits, berries and cannabis leaves would do a body good.
Dry your herbs and spices and combine them. Make teas, with lemon, ground ginger, mint leaves, cannabis flowers, and so much more. Add CBD or THC bits and flakes to a breakfast of fresh egg and cannabis omelet, or sprinkle fresh finely chopped or dried cannabis leaves and chopped roots over scrambled eggs. Cannabis can be integrated with most herbs and spices to liven up food and drink. Cannabis creations for food is only limited by taste and preference when creating amazing, almost magical seasoning recipes.
NOTE: When making seasonings for a self life of six months all ingredients mixed should be completely dried.
Please be sure to consult with your doctor regarding the safety of consuming cannabis products.
