Cannabis Infused Date Smoothie

A smoothie with dates is mind-blowingly delicious. They are a great way to pack a lot of nutrition for patients, the perfect balance of cannabis and natural sweetness to start your day.

This smoothie is a real meal. You can add peanut butter or a tablespoon of cocoa to suit your tastes. Laurie Wolf says that she often puts all the ingredients in the blender and keeps it in the fridge overnight. Just a quick blending in the morning and she has a super awesome medicated breakfast. Sounds like the way to go.
