St. Patrick’s Day: 5 Tips To Make It Greener This Year 

St. Patrick’s Day, or Feast of Saint Patrick, is a holiday celebrated annually, on March 17th, marking the death of St. Patrick, patron saint of Ireland.

This holiday is celebrated in many countries around the globe, and although it is the Irish holiday, the first St.Patrick’s parade took place in Florida in 1601.

The reason for that is that the Irish immigrants wanted to celebrate their holiday, and throwing a parade was a perfect way to celebrate their origin and their saint.

From 1601 till today, St. Patrick’s Day is celebrated both in Ireland and around the world.

This holiday is now celebrated traditionally in Ireland, and among the Irish around the world.

The theme colour of this holiday is green and the main symbol is a shamrock, a three-leaf clover which is believed to bring luck.

For weed-lovers, green is associated with marijuana and there is no better way to celebrate this day than using cannabis.

Cool Mint Cannabis Brownies With Green Topping

For detailed instructions, you can check out our recipe on how to make weed brownies. As for the mint frosting simply follow the instructions below.

It is important to mention that mint frosting should be the last step in preparing cool mint brownies, and it should be spread over the top of weed brownies after they are cooled down.

Ingredients:

    • 3 tablespoons of milk 
    • 3 cups powdered sugar
    • 1 cup unsalted, softened butter
    • 1 teaspoon mint extract
    • 5-6 drops of green food colouring
    • A mixer 

Prepare a mixer, and put the ingredients in. Start with sugar, then add butter, and mint extract on medium speed until the mixture becomes smooth. Then slowly start with adding the milk and food colouring. After you finish, turn off the mixer, and spread the frosting over the weed brownies. 

You can refrigerate brownies for a couple of minutes or you can consume them right away.

Notice: The amount and potency of weed used in the recipe (or THC content, to be precise) will affect how strong a single serving will be. Be careful, and always have in mind that edibles take longer time to kick in.

It all started in 1979 on a small Hawaiian island, with a group of promising students and athletes that would hang out after school, riding in a Volkswagen van.

This group of friends loved to indulge in Pakalolo (noun: the Hawaiian word for cannabis) – or as locals called it: Choom. They named themselves the “Choom Gang” and would go on to influence our world as successful lawyers, entrepreneurs, and even the 44th president of the United States.

But back then, it was never about the future, it was about good people sparking ideas, sharing adventures, and cultivating good times.

Disclamer

1. Please consume responsibly.
2. When canning any food at home (e.g. cannabutter or canna-oil) you should be very careful since there can be a risk of the appearance of toxin that can lead to botulism, a very serious illness. This happens when food is canned, processed, stored or handled. Bacteria that cause botulism can very quickly grow in cannabis edibles that are made at home. Bacteria can cause botulism poisoning which is a very serious illness that affects the body’s nerves and produces serious health consequences.
