What’s the best way to survive Canada’s cold winters? Combatting them with Canada’s best winter activities: skiing, eating and legal cannabis. If you’re looking for a warm, comforting snack for an après ski that can enhance the good times too, try incorporating Canadian cannabis for a relaxing, hangover-free and, most importantly, a way to infuse more fun into these dark winter days.
Cooking with cannabis may seem complicated, but making edibles has actually never been easier. Just add cannabis oil (such as Canaca‘s Northern Dew Cannabis Oil) to your spice rack to heighten any sweet or savoury recipe, and make upcoming seasonal moments more memorable. The high comes on slowly and can take up to 90 minutes to kick in — which is all the better when you’re surrounded by close friends, yummy treats and indoor heating.
