Cannabis Cheri: Terpene Essentials -Why and How to Use Them; Irish Cream Bundt Cake


Hi Everyone,

Before I get to today’s newsletter, I wanted to get your input on my next infused party plan.  As you you know from recent emails, one of the new FREE bonuses added to my Easy Cannabis Cooking for Home Cooks online course was a mini-course in entertaining with marijuana, and an elegant infused dinner party plan.  Well, it’s time to plan my next party, so let me know which of these party plans you would be most interested in (thanks for your input):

  • Infused Pizza Party — a casual and fun party featuring infused pizza, salad and dessert
  • Wake and Bake Infused Brunch Party — start the day in a Mary Jane way, most all the work can be done the night before so you can have fun at your own party
  • Mocktails and Hors D’ouevres  — Infused drinks and bite-sized appetizers for a party that can be casual or elegant depending on the host’s choosing.

The Importance of Terpenes

Marijuana and fruits symbolizing their terpenes

There is a LOT of important information in this article that a LOT of people (especially beginners but even more experienced cannabis users) don’t understand and/or are misinformed about.  Especially when it comes to the importance (or lack thereof) of the categories of Indica, Sativa, and Hybrid.

Understanding terpenes (the chemical compounds in plants that give them their scent) and how to use them can help you make better strain choices when purchasing cannabis.  If you are looking to address specific symptoms when using marijuana, then terpenes are your friend.  Terpenes can also help you make better tasting edibles.

Terpenes are so important, I even created a downloadable terpenes cheat sheet you can take with you to the dispensary, or use when making marijuana edibles.

Pistachio Irish Cream Mini Marijuana Bundt Cakes

Marijuana Bundt Cake Pistachio Irie irish Cream Bundt Cake Recipe
These little Marijuana Bundt cakes could not be easier to make, as they doctor up a plain cake mix and turn it into something extraordinary.

I was trying to come up with a recipe for St Patrick’s Day when I came up with this marijuana Bundt cake, so Irish cream liqueur was on my mind. Then I happened upon a box of Pistachio pudding mix hiding in the back of my pantry and thought why not? The flavors will match well and it will make the cakes look green.

Well the flavors did match well. These little treats are delicious. But…the color was barely green. So if you want green cakes for a marijuana St. Patrick’s Day celebration (or any other time), add a few drops of food coloring to your batter.
Get the recipe.
