Baked Apple Donuts With Maple-Cannabis Glaze

Ingredients

Donuts

  • 3 eggs
  • 2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1 ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ cup melted coconut oil
  • 1 ¼ cup applesauce, at room temperature
  • 4 tablespoon orange juice
  • 1 ½ teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon apple pie spice
  • 1 teaspoon salt

Maple Glaze

  • 2 ½ tablespoons GanjaEats Maple Syrup
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 2–3 tablespoons heavy cream
  • ¼ teaspoon maple flavoring
  • ⅛ teaspoon salt

Directions

  1. Preheat your oven to 350˚F. Grease two donut trays (enough for 12 donuts total).
  2. In a large bowl, combine applesauce, eggs, and sugar. Give these a light mix, then slowly add the orange juice, flour, baking powder, apple pie spice, vanilla, and salt. Blend well, then add the coconut oil and give it another good stir.
  3. Scoop the batter carefully into each donut pan, spreading the batter evenly. Put trays in oven and bake for 15–18 minutes, until golden in color. A toothpick should come out clean when poked into the donut. Allow to cool slightly, then remove donuts from tray and set them aside on a wire rack to cool thoroughly.
  4. While the donuts bake, combine the infused maple syrup, powdered sugar, heavy cream, maple flavoring, and salt to make the glaze. Mix well until you reach a creamy consistency.
  5. Once donuts are completely cooled, dip the top of each one into the glaze, coating them evenly. Return to rack glaze-side up and allow to set.
  6. Once glaze is set, the donuts are ready. Enjoy while they’re fresh!

Five Things Canada’s Cannabis Act Will Legalize Besides Possession

By July 2018, adult-use recreational cannabis is scheduled to become legal across Canada—and it’s not just simple possession that’s being legalized. Here are five cannabis-related goods and activities that Trudeau’s  Cannabis Act will make legal for adult Canadians.

1. Bongs, pipes and other accessories will finally be legal

Wait, what? Bongs are illegal in Canada?! Yes, technically, though it’s a law that’s rarely enforced any more. With the Cannabis Act, this law will be amended so that the sale and possession of cannabis accessories will finally become completely legal. (Well, almost completely legal—entities selling cannabis accessories will be subject to rules restricting the promotion and display of such goods, particularly in regard to youth exposure and access.)

Under the Cannabis Act, individuals will be able to give—but not sell—up to 30 grams of cannabis to other adults.

2. Growing your own and giving some to an adult friend

Just like they have it in Colorado, Canadians will be able to grow their own cannabis. In the initial version of the bill, Canadians were to be limited to four plants and a 100cm height limitation. In the revised version, the 100cm limit has been removed, though the four-plant limit remains. Under the Cannabis Act, individuals will be able to distribute—but not sell—up to 30 grams of cannabis to other adults. This would allow individuals to grow a little and ‘gift’ some to a friend. Just not for money.

3. Wine cellars… but with cannabis

Under Canada’s legalization plan, there is no federal limit on the amount of cannabis one can possess privately in their own residence. What this little loophole may spur is anyone’s guess, but when I first mentioned this part of the proposed law on Twitter, I had more than one person exclaim that this could allow wine cellar-like cannabis collections. It probably wouldn’t look exactly like a wine cellar, but Canadian cannabis connoisseurs will be able to collect all the cannabis they can amass in their private residence—unless the country’s provinces decide to put such limits on it within their borders.

Under Canada’s legalization plan, there is no federal limit on the amount of cannabis one can possess privately in their own residence.

4. Weed weddings

Since states south of the border have legalized, cannabis-loving couples have been adding cannabis elements to their weddings. In Canada, throwing a cannabis wedding—where cannabis-infused products appear alongside alcohol at the bar and guests are given cannabis-flower parting gifts—appears to be something that will be legal. As long as you’re distributing under 30 grams to each guest–and as mentioned above, don’t “sell” it – you would not be violating the proposed federal law.

5. Personal extraction of cannabis using non-organic solvents

In 2015, a year after Colorado legalized adult-use recreational cannabis, the state followed up with a law banning the use of combustible organic solvents in cannabis extraction. In Canada, officials are restricting the use of organic solvents right out of the gate, but is otherwise allowing extraction of cannabis. It looks like the bill implicitly allows the use of non-organic solvents and solvent-free extraction devices, as long as you’re extracting it for your own use. (Look for Canada to see a rise in the sale of rosin presses and bubble bags.)

So there you have it, five things the Cannabis Act will legalize beyond mere possession. A final word of caution: It’s possible that provinces and municipalities may enact their own offences and regulations closer to legalization date, so not everything is set in stone. (For example, there may be registration requirements for personal cultivation or other conditions.) Stay tuned.

Is Ontario’s Legal Cannabis Monopoly Constitutional?

The Supreme Court of Canada is about to consider the impact of the country’s legalization plan on the country’s interprovincial trade. Canada’s top court has accepted an application from cannabis-related companies to intervene in an upcoming case that some are saying could have wide implications for interprovincial trade in the country.

In 2016, Gerard Comeau of Tacadie, New Brunswick was fined almost $300 for bringing more than 14 cases of beer into the province. (New Brunswick is home to laws that restrict the amount of alcohol that can be brought across its border.) The charge was later overturned at the New Brunswick Court of Appeal, and a subsequent appeal by the Crown means the country’s top court will wade into the boozy feud.

“It is Cannabis Culture’s position that the LCBO’s control over all recreational cannabis distribution and sale is overly restrictive and amounts…to a form of interprovincial trade barrier.”

lawyer Kirk Tousaw

Now, Cannabis Culture, the marijuana lifestyle brand that once franchised its name to dispensary locations across Canada, has hired prominent cannabis lawyer Kirk Tousaw to apply as an intervenor in the Comeau case. Their application is also being submitted on behalf of 28 other corporations, which collectively operate what the application says are more than 350 cannabis dispensaries across the country.

In their application, Tousaw says that Cannabis Culture believes the upcoming ruling is “of pressing and substantial importance” because provinces “could create barriers to the free trade of cannabis products from Province to Province … and could constitute an infringement of s. 121 of the Constitution Act of 1867.”

‘Reasonable Access’: This Court Case Could Decide the Future of Ontario Dispensaries

Tousaw is hoping to use the case to dismantle the Ontario government’s planned cannabis monopoly – or at least get the conversation going on it. “It is Cannabis Culture’s position that the [Liquor Control Board of Ontario]’s control over all recreational cannabis distribution and sale is overly restrictive and amounts … to a form of interprovincial trade barrier.” He submits that any province seeking to “exert exclusive control over the distribution and sale of cannabis and cannabis derivative products through a Provincial entity” is in effect creating such an unconstitutional trade barrier. The application asks the Supreme Court to confirm the decision of the New Brunswick Court of Appeal, which rejected the charge against Comeau.

Tousaw is a bold cannabis litigator famous for defending the Smith case, which brought arguments over edibles and concentrates to the Supreme Court .

In that case, a man named Owen Smith was arrested for producing cookies and edibles for patients of a dispensary. In his defense, Tousaw strove for the moon, asking the Court to rule entire sections of the country’s drug rules be ruled unconstitutional and to find that cannabis should instead be regulated by the country’s Natural Health Products regime.

Ultimately, Tousaw didn’t get everything he wanted, but the Supreme Court did rule in his client’s favour, finding that some provisions of Canada’s drug laws were unconstitutional to the extent that they prohibit individuals from procuring and consuming concentrated forms of cannabis as they need it.

Tousaw’s bringing similar determination to the Comeau case. It’s unclear if the Supreme Court will accept Cannabis Culture’s intervenor application, and even if they do, the Court may not seriously consider their arguments. It’s unlikely that the Supreme Court will even mention the word cannabis in their ruling, similar to the lower court decisions in this case.

As Legalization Looms, Toronto Wrangles Where to Allow Smoking

There are many parallels between this case and Canada’s proposed legalization plan, and it is likely that claims regarding interprovincial trade of cannabis will continue to be heard by the country’s courts. The 30-gram public possession limit contained in the Cannabis Act could be a significant barrier to interprovincial trade, since you can only cross provincial borders, well, in public.

Tousaw and Cannabis Culture don’t mention the 30-gram limit in their application, but ostensibly if the court confirms the Court of Appeal’s dismissal of the case, a challenge to the public-possession limit could be forthcoming. Stay tuned.

Why My Wife and I Used Our Wedding to Celebrate Responsible Cannabis Consumption

It was an unseasonably warm October evening as I walked toward the live mariachi band with my new bride, Cynthia. In between days of dreary rain and freezing snow, somehow the clouds parted and made room for a perfect wedding under the stars last weekend in Lafayette, Colorado—just north of Denver.

As the eight-piece band set off into a soaring chorus of harmonies, I couldn’t help but feel an overwhelming sense of joy. Here we were on this beautiful night in our earliest moments as newlyweds, sharing it with our family, relatives, closest friends, and more than 100 colleagues.

Cynthia and I are both proud members of the cannabis industry, and in planning one of the most important days of our lives, we decided to share a key part of ourselves with those nearest and dearest to us by integrating cannabis into our wedding reception. Our guests discovered an array of locally sourced cannabis products in our specially outfitted Bud Barn—a literal barn adored with scores of elegant chandeliers hanging from the roof. There were cannabis soft drinks from Keef Cola, infused teas from Purple Monkey, and gooey, tantalizing s’mores made with cannabis chocolates crafted by Incredibles. To top it all off, budtenders were holding court in the Bud Barn, hand-rolling joints for our guests with flower sourced from our Denver cultivation facility at Medicine Man.

By this point you’re likely thinking our wedding vows were exchanged in a haze of billowing smoke. But that’s where you’d be wrong, as we didn’t open the Bud Barn until after the ceremony. As people who are invested in the future of the cannabis industry, Cynthia and I are passionate about responsible social cannabis consumption. We believe in the power of cannabis to positively shape people’s health and well-being, yet we understand the anxiety surrounding recreational use for new adopters, which is why we decided to create a space at our wedding reception where novices and experienced enthusiasts alike could experiment on their own terms and, most importantly, relax knowing they were in full control of their high.

To ensure this, all the infused cannabis products we served at our wedding were microdosed, with every serving measured to contain only a fraction of a dose of THC. This allowed every guest to effectively control their own experience. A typical microdose contains 2.5 milligrams of activated THC, which is one-quarter of the state-regulated edible cannabis serving size in Colorado and other states. Some people say it’s cannabis’s equivalent of having a glass of pinot grigio. That’s what we mean by responsible social cannabis consumption.

Microdosing With Cannabis: Benefits Without the Buzz

We’re starting to see more cannabis businesses producing microdosed products, understanding that, sometimes, less is more. A single piece of chocolate in the cannabis-infused s’mores we served included 2.5 milligrams of THC. Each cup of tea also included 2.5 milligrams. The Keef Cola, served in champagne flutes, was measured out at roughly 1 milligram of THC, so that nobody—an experienced aficionado or first-timer—was going to have a bad experience on our watch.

It was a night of firsts for many of our 400 guests, all of whom received cards at the beginning of the night encouraging them to try something new at our celebration. For some, that meant substituting alcohol with cannabis. For others, it meant testing some new moves out on the dance floor.

Of course, not everyone at our reception consumed cannabis. Like many wedding receptions, we had a full bar stocked with beer, wine, specialty cocktails, and champagne, as well as an espresso bar, topped off with infused and non-infused options for sweetener and creamer.

Want a ‘Cannabis Bar’ at Your Wedding? Here’s How One Planner Pulled It Off

While alcohol and socializing are a culturally acceptable pairing, cannabis is still on the fringes, even when the data clearly points to it as the far safer alternative. An average of 88,000 alcohol-related deaths occur annually in the US alone, with more than 2,000 of those deaths due to alcohol poisoning, and Colorado is one of the leading states for alcohol poisoning fatalities per capita. By comparison, no cannabis overdose has ever been reported. And while Denver’s dynamic bar scene is thriving, it’s still almost impossible to legally consume cannabis in any form outside of someone’s personal residence—even though the city’s voters approved social use-centric Initiative 300 in November 2016.

So our hope is that our friends and neighbors will look back to our wedding as an example of responsible social cannabis use, because there are clearly certain prohibition-era relics still hanging on, even in these enlightened days.

With that, Cynthia and I raise a glass to the future, one that is more enlightened about this plant we love. Next up, Maine for the honeymoon—where we will toast the rest of our lives together in another recreationally legal state!

Cheers.
