Lassi is a popular traditional dahi (yogurt) based drink that originated in India. It is a blend of yogurt, water, spices and sometimes fruit. There is a specific version of this drink though that we are big fans of. Cannabis Lassi or Bhang Lassi. In this version the drink is infused with cannabis in the form of bhang which is a special process of preparing the cannabis to make it edible. We will take you through the details of making it in a bit but a quick historical reference is needed to get the essence of this recipe.

Bhang through the ages

Bhang is part of the ancient Hindu tradition and custom in the Indian subcontinent. It has been used since 1000 BC in ancient India and it is considered to have various medicinal properties such as a digestion and appetite aid, curing fever, dysentery and sunstroke. Bhang is consumed all over India and more heavily in Mathoura, an ancient town of religious importance to the Hindus, Here the practise is believed to have been introduced by the followers of Krishna and has stayed ever since. It was traditionally used to connect men with Krishna and purify them from their sins.
According to legend, Shiva once had an argument with his family, and wandered off into a field, where he slept under a cannabis plant. Upon waking up, he consumed some of the cannabis and felt instantly rejuvenated and refreshed, prompting him to adopt cannabis as his favourite indulgence.

During the Middle Ages, soldiers often took a drink of bhang before entering battle, just as Westerners took a swig of whiskey. It was said to give them an adrenaline rush, so they felt immortal and invincible, and lessened pain.

It wasn’t until the 1970’s that the popularity of Bhang Lassi took off with the emergence of recreational cannabis tourism in India. Tourists rediscovered this nutritious cannabis milk shake and made it a favourite across the world. There are numerous variations of cannabis lassi across India all to satisfy the different needs that people have. You have to make sure that you adapt this recipe to your preferences.

Cannabis Lassi / Bhang Lassi recipe

Ingredients:

  • 250 g yogurt
  • 64 g ice cubes (optional if you want it cold)
  • 32 g honey
  • 2 drops rose essence
  • 128g water
  • 1/2 teaspoon bhang seed power

Optionally you can add ground ginger, chopped almonds, coconut milk, sour milk, sugar, fruits or whatever else is to your liking.

  1. If you’re looking to make edibles/tinctures/cannabutter/etc., decarbing your weed is the first step! Decarboxylation is the magic behind making cannabis a potent additive to food and can be used for both THC and CBD cannabinoids. The easiest way to decarb your flowers is to boil them for 10 minutes.
  2. Next you will need to drain them and using a mortar and pestle or a mixer ground them into a paste which can be added to foods. You can add 2 tablespoons of hot milk to help with the grounding.
  3. Mix all the ingredients into a bowl until you get a homogeneous mix, pour it in a glass and enjoy!

As with all edibles, both CBD and THC, it is important that you gradually increase the dose to understand the tolerance levels that you have or the people that you are going to share them with. To quote John Steinbeck on “Travels with Charley: In Search of America”

A journey is a person in itself; no two are alike. And all plans, safeguards, policies and coercion are fruitless. We find after years of struggle that we do not take a trip; a trip takes us.

Why Our CBD Gummies Are So Popular

Our CBD gummies are on another level! We’ve heard about how other CBD Gummies don’t taste very good. However, we’ve managed to find the perfect balance between the right amount of CBD and taste. If you have a sweet tooth you’ll love these CBD Gummies among other reasons.

Our CBD gummies are on another level! We’ve heard about how other CBD Gummies don’t taste very good. However, we’ve managed to find the perfect balance between the right amount of CBD and taste. If you have a sweet tooth you’ll love these CBD Gummies among other reasons.

What Do CBD Gummies Taste Like?

What Do CBD Gummies Taste Like?

A common question we get is what do our CBD Gummies taste like? The taste is a fruity mix with notes of sour candy. They come in worm shapes and each one has 50 mg of CBD. However, unlike other CBD Gummies we don’t compromise on the taste. We realized that not many people enjoy the Earthy-bitter flavor of CBD. Therefore, they are sweet and even without the CBD they taste amazing!

Side Note: These Gummies are not diabetic or vegan friendly. The reason we didn’t decide to go that route is because of the taste. CBD alone already provides a different flavor. Therefore, we wanted a product that people are already familiar with. This product is great for CBD newcomers.

How CBD Gummies Are Different

How CBD Gummies Are Different

Let’s face it, you probably don’t have much time for anything let alone taking in certain forms of CBD. You have to get the CBD that agrees with your lifestyle and for the person on the go our CBD Gummies are perfect. You simply open the package, throw a piece in your mouth and move on with your day. No questions, no preparations, and no need to carry any device around. You will also be free from any pressures on the duration it takes to consume CBD.

Some people who have issues with smoking or vaping their CBD find that CBD Edibles are equally as good. However, the main difference between ingesting your CBD VS. Vaping/Smoking is the absorption rate. Whenever you vape or smoke anything that product tends to enter into your system within minutes. Anything you eat or ingest can take between an hour to an hour and a half before you feel that product working.

CBD Gummies Will Not Get You High

Just like all of our CBD products – our Gummies are not meant to get you high. Yes, it takes longer for the CBD to hit your system this way; however, they are still non-psychoactive. All of our CBD products have below 0.03% THC so you’re not getting enough to produce a high. Also, our Gummies come from legally grown Hemp – not from Marijuana.

Another thing to consider is that even if you take the whole bag – it still won’t get you high. You might feel drowsy, upset stomach, or other unpleasant side effects. An important thing to note is that according to the World Health Organization (WHO) the toxic dose of CBD is 20,000 mg. A comfortable dosage that we recommend is 1 Gummy Worm, but dosages can vary depending on tolerance.

Drug Test

Although our CBD has about 0.03% of THC or less we get asked if you’ll pass a drug test. In short, you should be able to pass a drug test taking CBD Gummies but it can vary depending on the brand. Our lab test results for our CBD Gummies shows that our CBD has Non-Detectable traces of THC. However, if you’re buying a different brand of Edibles you’ll want to be sure you’re getting low to undetectable traces of CBD.

If you’re worried about passing a drug test we recommend not taking CBD for a while. This is of course assuming you know when you’re going to be drug tested. Also, CBD Isolate typically has less traces of THC than Full Spectrum CBD. This is because CBD Isolate separates the CBD from all of the other cannabinoids. This produces a more pure form of CBD which our Gummies use.

Conclusion

Why Our CBD Gummies Are So Popular

Our Gummies are among the most popular products that we carry. Aside from the convenience and strength factors; we believe the taste of these Gummies is one of the biggest reasons for their popularity. Although, they can’t get you high, we’re sure you’ll love the experience. If you are new to CBD this is the best beginners product because it gives you the right amount of CBD.

Purification and Biochemical Characterization of Sucrose synthase from the Stem of Nettle (Urtica dioica L.)

Sucrose synthase is a key enzyme in sucrose metabolism as it saves an important part of sucrose energy in the uridine-5′-diphosphate glucose (UDP-glucose) molecule. As such it is also involved in the synthesis of fundamental molecules such as callose and cellulose, the latter being present in all cell walls of plant cells and therefore also in the gelatinous cell walls of sclerenchyma cells such as bast fibers. Given the importance of these cells in plants of economic interest such as hemp, flax…

Abstract

Sucrose synthase is a key enzyme in sucrose metabolism as it saves an important part of sucrose energy in the uridine-5′-diphosphate glucose (UDP-glucose) molecule. As such it is also involved in the synthesis of fundamental molecules such as callose and cellulose, the latter being present in all cell walls of plant cells and therefore also in the gelatinous cell walls of sclerenchyma cells such as bast fibers. Given the importance of these cells in plants of economic interest such as hemp, flax and nettle, in this work we have studied the occurrence of Sucrose synthase in nettle stems by analyzing its distribution between the cytosol, membranes and cell wall. We have therefore developed a purification protocol that can allow the analysis of various characteristics of the enzyme. In nettle, Sucrose synthase is encoded by different genes and each form of the enzyme could be subjected to different post-translational modifications. Therefore, by two-dimensional electrophoresis analysis, we have also traced the phosphorylation profile of Sucrose synthase isoforms in the various cell compartments. This information paves the way for further investigation of Sucrose synthase in plants such as nettle, which is both economically important, but also difficult to study.

Keywords: Sucrose synthase; Urtica dioica; bast fibers; phosphorylation; protein purification.
