Smoothies, veggies and ‘danknola’: Try these healthy cannabis-infused recipes

There are so many recipes out there to make your own cannabis-infused coconut oil, and now you can even buy it prepared in some dispensaries. As a healer, my goal is to endorse health in all possible ways. This involves encouraging people to put the right things in their bodies that heal instead of harm. Here’s how to use this method to ingest cannabis in a delicious, creative, and healthy way.

How to make a healthy weed smoothie


~2 cups spinach

~2 cups frozen mixed berries

~1 cup plant-based milk, orange juice, coconut water, or just regular water

~3-4 leaves Mint

~1 cup ice

AND the magic ingredient,

~1 tbsp cannabis coconut oil (or whatever the unit is for 5-10mg)

Blend until mixed and drink up. You can also use whatever ingredients you have on hand, it doesn’t have to be exactly what I used. Basically, all you need to do is make a smoothie and plop some weed coconut oil in.
