St. Patrick’s Day is always a fun time for us. We usually have friends over for a little nosh to sustain us before we hit our favorite pubs for some (makeshift Irish accent) green beer.
My Easy CBDeelicious Guacamole seemed like the perfect choice to serve with some warm tortilla strips. This is a dynamite time of year. Avocados are cheap. The days are getting warmer and the evenings are still cool & breezy. It is perfect stumblin’ weather. So, Bring on the copious amounts of Green, the Green Beer & let the Leprechauns snack on:
Easy CBDeelicious Guacamole Dip
6 Ingredients – 6 Easy Steps
3 Small, Ripe Haas Avocados Pitted (not too soft or black–they are over-ripe)
1 tsp. Freshly Ground Black Pepper
1 tsp. Kosher Salt
1 tsp. of Mojito Lime Hemp Oil Extract (1000mg.)
2 Tbsp. of FRESH Salsa
1 Tbsp. of sour cream or yogurt* (adjust to taste)
In small bowl with airtight lid combine:
1. Lightly mashed Avocados
2. Grind in fresh pepper
3. Add kosher salt
4. Gently-but thoroughly mix in Mojito Lime CBD Oil
5. Fold in fresh salsa.
6. Blend in sour cream (or yogurt) to achieve desired consistency.
* Optional: Add a pinch of cayenne or splash of fav. hot sauce
Cover with airtight lid. Sit on countertop for 30 mins while CBD oil infuses with the fat in the avocado. Now refrigerate 1 hour. Serve Immediately. We love it with pita chips too. Next time we decided to try spreading it on little French bread rounds. This is a crowd pleaser. It makes about 6 servings.
*I have not had luck substituting mayo. It makes the dip “feel” a little greasy in your mouth.
After finishing one of my buddy’s craft beers and wiping out the guacamole dip; we are off. As we headed to the car, our designated WIFE driver was more than happy to have CBD lozenges in her pocket. She loves how quickly they ease chronic arthritis pain (they bypass the digestive system which equals faster pain killing). Back spasms would keep her from going out with us, especially when we were doing a lot of stumbling walking. So, as we all pile in the car, she gently slides in the driver’s seat, smiles and pops a 50mg. CBD lozenge in her mouth…and never stopped smiling. By the time we arrive at Flannigan’s Pub and park the car (about 30 minutes) her CBD has fully kicked in.
Now SHE is the one that hops out of the car and is leading the way-spasm & pain free. No beers, no pills, no prescriptions or shots. Discovering a simple non-psychoactive plant extract (cannabidiol) that comes from hemp seems to have restored her flexibility and her livelihood… Lozenges work great for her because they are slow-releasing and easy to carry in a pocket. I have also seen her tote around (and have borrowed) CBDfx gummy bears. The gummies are 5mg each. This allows for easy adjustment of your CBD dose; or you can eat 4 or 5 gummies when you fall off the curb watching the St. Patrick’s Day parade and end up with road rash.
