A nice mug of cocoa
Posted 13 July 2011 - 03:18 PM
half pint full fat milk
heaped teaspoon fairtrade cocoa powder
sugar to taste
an amount of bud/hash (I'm using about four/five one-skins worth)
chuck a little milk in a mug
chuck the rest of the milk in a pan on a low heat and add the bud/hash
slowly, gently, with care love and affection bring to the simmer. do not fecking boil or it goes rank. (very low heat and covered pan works for me)
gently simmer for at least 20mins (today I'm going for 30mins)
while waiting for that put the cocoa powder and sugar in the mug with the wee bit of cold milk and stir it into a paste.
after the 20mins is up pour the hot milk through a sieve/tea-strainer into the mug. stir.
drink. best done on an empty stomach.
if you have anything important to do you've got about 90 mins tops. probably less than 60.
I drank mine 39mins ago. A quick and here we go, here we go ...
oops. 49mins and it's there we went. haven't touched the yet

It took me half an hour to remember I was about to stand up, but when I did I was a non-stop action hero for an hour - inspecting non-canna garden plants, collapsing in fits of giggles, playing with the cats, chatting with The Snoffess, and suddenly it was tea time.
Doing the washing up was fun, though prone to sudden giggles. Snoffess wanted to watch tv but I persuaded her to come for a stroll - one of the cats followed us. Funny. More giggles. When we saw passers-by I was almost crying laughing.
Had a little mild ankle pain after the stroll, but no knee pain. Bonus.
The Snoffess wants to try a cocoa this weekend ...

The Snoffess doesn't toke but she does have an occasional cookie. On cookies I tend to need about 4x as much as she has so I gave her approx one fifth of a Snoffle cocoa dose. An hour later we knew this was slightly too much for her. She got helped to bed, I kept her company for a half hour until she was ok to be left on her own. Then I went off to drink a glass or two of wine and tend the non-canna garden.
I had a cracking time. The Snoffess not so much ...
More accurate dosing levels required before letting her try another cocoa

It's very easy to use too much for a non-toker and give her a bad experience. I think it's always best to have too little rather than too much. Maybe one tenth of what you as a toker find to be a mild buzz would be a good starting point?

I had just made some canna butter and strained all the butter off.
I boiled the leftovers in milk (which were still soaked with cannabutter)
I took a swig and was nearly sick. This was 9pm.
I had used salted butter and I couldn't drink it.
Reading snoffles posts about how strong it is, it's probably best that I threw it away or I might have had trouble getting up for work.
Now I have a glass of solid salted canna-butter (it's green) that I don't know what to do with.
