Recently I was browsing Cannabis Culture and there is an article about a guy who wants to trade mark bhang!TM bhang?  This is rediculous! The term bhang is so broad it is like trade marking the word beer, or hemp.  Anyways I wanted to share with you a recipe I found how to make Bhang that will get you high!  Not some Bull shit TM'd hemp oil chocolate.

Flavoured bhang drink
2 cups water
1 ounce marijuana (fresh leaves and flowers of a female plant preferred)
4 cups warm milk
2 tablespoons blanched and chopped almonds
1/8 teaspoon garam masala (a mixture of cloves, cinnamon, and cardamon)
1/4 teaspoon powdered ginger
1/2 to 1 teaspoon rosewater
1 cup sugar

Bring the water to a rapid boil and pour into a clean teapot. Remove any seeds or twigs from the marijuana, add it to the teapot and cover. Let this brew for about 7 minutes.
Now strain the water and marijuana through a piece of muslin cloth, collect the water and save.

Take the leaves and flowers and squeeze between your hands to extract any liquid that remains. Add this to the water.
Place the leaves and flowers in a mortar and add 2 teaspoons warm milk. Slowly but firmly grind the milk and leaves together. Gather up the marijuana and squeeze out as much milk as you can. Repeat this process until you have used about 1/2 cup of milk (about 4 to 5 times). Collect all the milk that has been extracted and place in a bowl. By this time the marijuana will have turned into a pulpy mass.

Add the chopped almonds and some more warm milk. Grind this in the mortar until a fine paste is formed. Squeeze this paste and collect the extract as before. Repeat a few more times until all that is left are some fibers and nut meal. Discard the residue.

Combine all the liquids that have been collected, including the water the marijuana was brewed in. Add to this the garam masala, dried ginger and rosewater. Add the sugar and remaining milk.

Chill, serve, and enjoy.

If you know of a better recipe please comment on this post!

Summer Time

One of the best times of year to be at the beach in Tahoe is now!  The water is finally warming up and the beautiful people are nice and bronzed.  I'm going to tell you all a few tips on enjoying the beach, what you should bring, and tell you how to safely medicate without getting arrested.

Tip #1: Bring sunscreen and reapply every hour or two! The lake is around 7000 feet and at this high altitude it is very easy to get sunburned.

Tip #2:  If you are going to a beach such as Chimney beach you will have to hike half a mile down a dirt trail so bring shoes to hike down in.  Trust me your feet will thank you for not wearing flip flops on this hike!  You can put your flippy floppys on at the beach.

Tip #3: Bring a frisbee, football, or volleyball to the beach.  If you get bored easily like me you will want something to do while some of your friends are laying out in the sun for hours.

Tip #4 Beverages on beach:  You are definitely going to need to bring plenty of water to the beach.  If your planning on staying most of the day I would bring 1.5 L of water.  If you are wanting to party on the beach make sure you don't have any glass bottles!  Get canned beer or boxed wine, or fill up your favorite plastic water bottle with a beverage of choice! If you have glass or are drinking on the beach under age you will be ticketed!

Tip #5 Medicating on the beach:  Back in the day most Tahoe beaches were really laid back, and were 420 friendly.  Most people that go to the beaches today are also 420 friendly.  Unfortunately the police are not 420 friendly and if caught with medicine or a pipe/bong chances are you definitely will be ticketed or arrested.  If you need to medicate while on the beach don't bring a pipe or bong, use some papers or roll a blunt.  A blunt or jay can be easily tossed or buried in the sand if needed. Smoke off the beach in the trees or take a hike on the many boulders wrapping around the lake.  There are plenty of discreet places really close to the beach to medicate and be safe at.  If you follow my guide you will have a safe and fun time around the many beaches of this beautiful lake!
