Cannabis Cheri: Is It OK to Use 40-Year-Old Weed?; Pot Potato Salads


Hi Everyone!

I am excited.  We have been working on a total overhaul and upgrade of my Easy Cannabis Cooking for Home Cooks online course.  It has been over 5 years since I launched the course and we have done some minor upgrades since then, but this was a complete overhaul to add new techniques, get rid of obsolete ones, and make everything easier to find and navigate.  If you are an enrolled student, you will automatically get access to the upgrades.  And if you are not, get ready.  If you have been following me any length of time, you know about the only time we do discounts is when we do upgrades.  So an upgrade, and a special limited time discount offer, is coming.  Probably next week.  We are finishing up video editing and work as we speak.

This week I tackle a question from one of my readers found a 40-year-old stash of weed!  Also get ready for medicated versions of everyone’s favorite summer side dish, potato salad!  Read on!

Is It OK to Use 40-Year-Old Weed?

Title card for "Is it OK to use very VERY old weed.

Dear Cheri,

So I have a REALLY old dime bag of sensimilla that my mother found and (I thought) confiscated FORTY years ago, but believe it or not, my sister found it in her dresser after my mom died, in the same makeup bag I kept it in along with my old pipe and some EZ-widers. It has been in the dark, in a baggie, inside a film canister for the entire 40-years since I last saw it. I would say it’s barely a couple of tablespoons. I wouldn’t dare smoke it, but do you think I could make some infused oil for using to help sleep or something? Just to give it a try? Or should I just put it in the Smithsonian?

Watch the video and get the answers.

Pot Potato Salads

Pot Potato Salad

Would it even be summer without potato salad?  I think not.  This issue I have included medicated versions of two of my all-time favorite potato salads.  The classic one is like what my dear old dad used to make.  Everyone always loves it and it always disappears no matter how much of it I make.

The second recipe is a more recent favorite and I especially love it because it contains no mayonnaise (making especially good for picnics).
