Medicating with edible marijuana doesn’t mean you have to eat sweets like pot cookies and pot brownies. You can medicate while eating a savory dinner with this delicious recipe for ganja lasagna. Like most marijuana recipes, this recipe doesn’t even call for pot butter; the weed is baked directly into the dish.
Remember that ingesting medical marijuana has a much different effect than smoking it. This is because when cannabis is eaten, some of the THC is destroyed by the liver metabolism and a potent THC metabolite is formed. It also takes considerably longer to feel the effects, so you might want to wait up to 45 minutes before going for a second helping. Not sure how to get medical marijuana? Visit MarijaunaDoctors.com.
