It really doesn’t matter who you are, or where you come from, as you get older, you’re going to have to work even harder to take care of yourself. The days of being able to down a sleeve of Oreos without gaining an ounce, are a distant memory. You can’t just galavant your way through life with various sweets and treats all the time. Although, we all desperately wish that weren’t the case.
Stay Healthy (And High) With These Cannabis Kale Chips
Fried foods and drive-thrus are so quick and easy, it’s almost a crime to avoid them, some would argue. And, to be fair, they have a point. But, the fact remains, if you’re even thinking about living a healthier lifestyle, you’re going to need to be willing to make some major changes. The first of which should be with your diet.
Sure, exercise is crucial if you’re looking to drop some pounds, but what you put into your body, and how much of it, is far more critical to the entire process. You may think you can eat whatever you please, so long as you hit the gym. But that couldn’t be further from the truth.

A poor diet, in concert with moderate workout time, won’t result in any sort of weight loss. In fact, with no accurate way to gauge your caloric intake, you may even put on some pounds. So, maintaining a proper diet, along with regular exercise, is the best way to ensure a truly healthy lifestyle.
But, if you’re like me, jumping headfirst into more “greener” culinary pastures is a lot easier said than done.
For picky eaters, like myself, “Salad” was considered a four-letter word. The thought of shoving greenery into my gullet was the least appetizing thing I could think of. However, years ago, I realized I needed to grow up and take care of myself, before things got out of hand.
Thus, began my search for something healthy, that at least tried to be tasty.
That’s when I first stumbled across Kale Chips.

It only took one bite, and I was obsessed. The crunchy, salty combination was undeniably enjoyable, and the fact I was still technically eating a “superfood” made everything that much better.
But, speaking of “making things better” I have a recipe for a truly unique take on Kale Chips that I think all of you, fellow enthusiasts, are really going to enjoy.

Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you, Cannabis Kale Chips!
However, before we get into any of the specifics, we’ll need to make sure you have some cannabis-infused cooking oil for this recipe.
Lucky for us, we live in a time full of recreational and medicinal marijuana products. So, most likely, you can find a bottle of this cannabis-infused cooking oil at your local dispensary. But, if they happen to be sold out, or just flat-out don’t carry such an item, it’s super easy to whip up a batch of your own at home.
In order to do that, you’ll need to place a rather large saucepan over a heat source, set on “Medium.” Then, pour in a cup of standard cooking oil, followed by a cup of finely ground-up cannabis flower. Gently stir these ingredients together, making sure each is evenly dispersed throughout the entirety of the saucepan.

Then, leave those two to simmer together with one another for 2-3 hours. Be mindful to check in on it every now and then, with a few stirs here and there, to make sure everything is going smoothly.
After that time period has elapsed, remove the saucepan from the heat source, and set it aside just for the time being. At this point, you’ll want to ready a container for storage. To do that, secure a piece of cheesecloth over the opening of your chosen jar or container. Through that cheesecloth, pour the contents of that saucepan into the waiting storage container below.
The straining material of the cheesecloth should adequately prevent any of the floral components of the contents from making their way into the finalized, fully-infused cooking oil. You can now use that oil in any way, shape, or form that you see fit.
But, how about we start by using it for these Cannabis Kale Chips, huh?

Instructions

Okay, once you’ve got all those in order, you can get started on, what is quite possibly, the easiest recipe of all time.

  • To get started, head into your kitchen and preheat that oven of yours to a respectable 350°. As that faithful oven heats up, grab a cookie sheet, and line that bad boy with some parchment paper. This will help ensure that none of the Cannabis Kale Chips stick to the sheet during the baking process.
  • Now, you’ll want to get your hands on that bunch of kale, and start to remove the leaves from the stem. You can do this in any number of ways. You can use kitchen shears, a knife, or even your hands. It’s completely up to you. There are no wrong answers here, so go with what feels most comfortable to you, and you should be more than fine.
  • As you remove them from the stem, in whatever way you see fit, make sure to break the leaves down into more bite-size pieces. I mean, they are chips, after all.
  • Place all of those pieces onto that previously-prepared cookie sheet, and drizzle your cannabis-infused cooking oil over all the pieces. Make sure to try your best to hit each one with a similar amount of oil. You’ll want each bite to offer up an expected, reliable THC-powered “punch.” Plus, the more evenly distributed, the easier it will be to gauge your dosage.
  • After you’re happy with how the oil is spread out amongst those chips, sprinkle your desired amount of salt and red pepper flakes on them, as well. When that quick step is complete, toss that cookie sheet into your preheated oven, and let those bad boys bake for anywhere between 10 to 15 minutes.
  • It is important, however, to make sure these guys don’t get burned. So, keep a watchful eye on them towards the end of the process. You’ll know things are ready to go when the edges are a bit brown, but not singed from excessive heat.
  • When all of that seems to be looking like it should, remove the sheet from the oven, and dump your chips onto a plate. Nothing left to do at this point, other than DIVE IN!
  • That’s it, party people. That’s how you make killer Cannabis Kale Chips.

Notes

Now, you can grub on these healthy snacks, completely guilt-free. In addition to getting you good and high, these Cannabis Kale Chips are packed full of nutrients that your body is going to thank you for.
Which is a lot more than can be said for the average sugar-filled edible you find at most dispensaries, that’s for sure.
