The term ‘gut health’ hardly paints a pretty picture, but any medical professional will tell you that it is vital to your well being. This is because the ‘gut’, otherwise known as the ‘digestive tract’, is essential for supporting and maintaining your immune system as well as processing all the foods, both good and fried, that you put in your body. If you are suffering from intestinal problems, it is crucial that you make careful choices when it comes to your diet. Among the key elements to a healthy gut are bacteria cultures that aid in the digestive and eliminative processes. In the spirit of maintaining a clean and flourishing digestive tract, below we have shared a medicated morning smoothie recipe featuring a THC/CBD strain called Embrace from our favourite label – D.S. & FITZ.
Embrace is an ideal choice for many patients suffering from inflammatory issues in the gut as CBD helps reduce inflammation and THC can help with pain or discomfort. This recipe also features Greek yogurt and flax seeds, which are staple ingredients in any gut-conscious diet.
Sweet Embrace Smoothie
1 cup of vanilla Greek yogurt
½ of soy milk
¼ cup of blueberries (frozen or fresh)
1 tbsp of flax seeds
2 tsp of all natural honey
0.5 grams of medical marijuana (Embrace by D.S. & FITZ)
Decarboxylate the marijuana. This is essential for the marijuana to have any effect when put into any edible.
How to Decarboxylate: Preheat the oven to 240° F. / 115° C, and break up the cannabis using your hands into smaller pieces if it is not already in small pieces. Place the marijuana evenly in one layer on a rimmed baking sheet. Once the oven is fully pre-heated, bake the cannabis for 60 minutes. Keep a close eye on the colour of the cannabis as it should be darker or a medium/light brown when it is finished. It shouldn’t feel wet, and should be fairly crumbly when you pick it up. Carefully grind the cannabis so that you are left with a finished product that is coarsely ground.
Combine the ingredients in a blender, including the marijuana, and blend until desired consistency is reached.
