I came back from Hungary the other day and I brought with me 1 Kilo of hemp seeds gotten from a Gen. Merchandise shop there… It is supposed to be bird´s food just like the sunflower seeds or any other seeds and corn cultivated by the farmers. The border of Hungary is Burgenland (Austria) and it´s also a farmer´s region for hemp cultivation. It is not to my knowing that Hungary also grows hemp so I am under the assumption that the seeds came from Burgenland since it is being cultivated there.
When I trimmed the Green Poison the other day, I had to snip the leaves around the buds. These leaves have plenty of trichomes. As a fact, the trichomes (translucent crystal like substance) are the ones that contribute to the potency of a strain and if leaves get that amber colored trichomes as well as the pistils turning brown, then the buds are ready for harvest.
a. Fan leaves … the slender leaves that are mostly used as the icon of cannabis. Fan leaf of indica is darker in color while that of the sativa is lighter in hues. It is said that these leaves have lesser cannabinoids, although they contribute favorable nutrients for wellness and of course for good health.
b. Sugar Leaves … they are the smaller leaves that surrounds the buds (below image) and are coated with white trichomes. Full of resin, they are sticky and they contribute to the potency of the strain and most importantly, they contain higher levels of cannabinoids as the fan leaves.
And so I saved the sugar leaves of the Green Poison while I snipped the harvested buds. I gathered them and processed in the machine and dried them overnight. Afterwards, I pulverized them again in a blender so I could add those as fine ingredient for the white chocolate.
200 grams plain white chocolate 1 tablespoons of pulverized cannabis sugar leaves (instead of 2 tbsp I originally added) 2 tablespoons hemp seeds 2 tablespoons whipping cream
- Place the chocolate block in a casserole adding the whipping cream melting it under low fire… mix all the time so that the whipping cream blends with the chocolate. When fully melted and blended, add the ground leaves.
- In a pan under medium heat, roast the hemp seeds until slightly brown in color, add this to the mixture , mix well until the mixture becomes green from the pulverized leaves. Fill each silicon muffin form with 2 tablespoons of the chocolate mixture and let cool in the fridge until they become hard.
When I ate 1 piece of the sweets, it was very tricky because of the sweet chocolate, you may not be able to taste the cannabis content since the taste had been over-powered by the sugar of the chocolate. After 1 piece and 15 minutes I already felt the effect of the sweets. I felt the beginning of cerebral and body high slowly taking effect.
My fatal action of eating the 2nd one triggered a nausea, cannabis should actually stop it. After about 1 hour, I was out of my elements, I had to sit and let the effects worked on me. The problem was, the vomiting feeling grew and grew until I puked and almost didn´t get to the toilet on time. Good thing was I held a container in my hand on the first phase of letting it out… the vomiting was uncontrollable and I think I filled half of the small bucket! What I have eaten the whole day went drastically out. I never felt so bad with cannabis! This strain totally blew my mind. After the vomiting, I felt better. I slept early and the following day, I was ok except with a little tingle in the tummy.
My problem was a disorder called “cannabinoid hyperemesis syndrome”, it is a marijuana induced vomiting.
What is it? It’s repeated cycles of nausea and vomiting, often accompanied by so-called “hot water bathing,” or a compulsive need to take hot showers. That’s because the hot showers — which sometimes last for hours — are the only thing that relieves their GI symptoms, though exactly why this happens isn’t entirely understood (but it’s thought to have something to do with the hot temperature’s effect on the part of the brain called the hypothalamus) Source.
**This is an “experimental composition”…the trichomes of the Green Poison are so potent, so be careful if you have gastrointestinal problems. The effect of this strain may differ from person to person. You should use 1 tablespoon of the ground sugar leaves only instead of 2 and try to eat a small portion until you are sure whether you can handle a bigger piece. **
