Eat Your Green Overview:
Eat Your Green started their company in April 2018 to give patients a way to easily infusing their cannabis into food. On their website they have the steps laid out for you to follow for a successful infusion at home with your products, as no cannabis is included.
Accessing Eat Your Green:
Eat Your Green have been out to a number of markets representing their brand and equipping people to make their own edibles at home. They have been regular vendors at the Lifted Markets and CannaCrawl. For those who are unable to make it out, their website has their products available for purchase. Eat Your Green (Instagram) is in the process of getting their products into an Ohio retailer. For the Canadian market they are looking at headshops and health food stores to carry their products, so keep an eye out.
Eat Your Green Pricing & Selection:
There are four products currently available for you to infuse at home, all conveniently priced at $8.99 each on their website. They are: Penne Alfredo, Gummy Kit, (different flavours available) Mac and Cheese and Vanilla Ice Cream Infusion Kit. When seeing Eat Your Green out at events he also had Greek & Balsamic Dressing Kits available. Each kit come with an infusion bag, but not cannabis is included.
Unique to Eat Your Green:
Eat Your Green came up with a great product, where the patient infuses the product with his or her own medicinal ingredients. Every other edible company I’ve seen has the product completely done, infused and ready to eat. One company has infused cookie dough that’s baked at home. Eat Your Green goes further to allow the patient to control their dose and how it’s infused. This coincidentally has put them in a good position for legalization where edibles aren’t legal for the first year. For those looking to Eat Your Green rather than smoke it, this is a safe way to make infused edible products at home. Eat Your Green has also recently added full nutritional facts to their packaging and added terpene isolates to enhance the flavor.
Mac and Cheese Taste:
Making the Mac and Cheese was quite straightforward with instructions on the package for distillate and instruction online for how to infuse your butter with cannabis buds. One recommendation I have is to manually mix the infusion bag as it heats through shaking it or messaging the bag. I used approximately half a gram of extract as the packaging suggests. Using their calculations, half a gram of 84% THC extract would be 420mg of THC. To infuse your products you can use cannabis buds or infused oil from the OCS.
Tasting the Mac and Cheese the cheese is strong and does a great job of masking the cannabis. There is a slight musky cannabis flavour at the end, but as you eat more it’s hardly recognizable. This flavour is a result of the extract used. Depending on how you infused the Mac and Cheese at home will affect the final flavour.
Mac and Cheese Effects:
I ate about a quarter to a third of the Mac and Cheese on an empty stomach and sat back waiting for the effects. I was surprised how filling the Mac and Cheese was; growing up I would finish a whole pack of KD myself. As I waited, I noticed how relaxed I was, not worrying about the tasks of the day. Doing the infusion at home allows you to control how much cannabis you put into your product. For those looking for more effect, add more cannabis. For those who are cautious, just start with a bit. The extract infusion worked very well, giving me relief for several hours.
