A fellow advocate friend who manages a medical marijuana dispensary recently had a major television news team visit. Prior to the interview the reporter was obsessed about what she called “the oil.” The camera crew HAD to photograph “the oil.” Much as my friend tried to explain there is no single “oil,” the reporter was still insistent.
I too get the question all the time, “Where can I find cannabis oil?” This usually comes on the heels of a cancer diagnosis. I then try to explain what my friend said: “There is no one “oil.”
So in order to clear up some of the confusion, the post at the link below covers some of the typical “cannabis oils” you are likely to encounter. They are produced in very different ways. Yes, they all have medicinal benefits, but the concentrations and potencies of the various products vary widely.

Marijuana Recipes: Infused Pesto
Pesto is a wonderful medicated utility recipe to have around because it has so many uses. Serve versatile pesto sauce with pasta or over steamed or grilled vegetables, chicken, fish, or tofu for an instant meal. You can even use a light coating of pesto instead of sauce on pizza.
With strong flavor components like fresh basil, garlic, olive oil, and Parmesan cheese, you’ll never notice the taste of the cannabis-infused oil in this recipe. Buy basil on sale, make a big batch of medicated pesto keep in your freezer for longer storage. That way you can spoon out just the amount you need at any given time.
Get the Recipe.
I use Marijuana Oil, specifically marijuana olive oil, to medicate this recipe. My Making Marijuana Oil tutorial will help you learn how to make it.
See You Next Week!
