For today’s #tryittuesday I decided to give myself a treat; a DIY infused ice cream cone!
I went to the Village Bloomery Cannabis shop and purchased myself a Pura Vida Daybreak oil. The Pura Vida Daybreak oil is a full spectrum oil. What is a full spectrum oil? Well long story short full spectrum means that all of the flavonoids, terpenes and cannabinoids that were present and available in the flower are now captured in the oil. I can get more into that another day. What I love about this oil is that it tastes and smells like cannabis. Then I took myself over the the Earnest Ice Cream shop not far from the Village Bloomery. I purchased a flavour that I felt the Daybreak Oil would compliment- Green Tea Matcha. Boy was I right. The herbal and citrusy flavour of the oil and the Green Tea Match were divine.
This is a simple way to make your own edible. I just filled the dispenser (it is included in the packaging for the oil) with two activations of oil and drizzled it on top of the ice cream cone.
I used the term activation because that is the word that is used on the Pura Vida package. What that refers to is the THC portion you get when you fill the dispenser. The full dispenser is 1 ml but there is a safety feature on their dispenser that stops you at .3 of an ml. In the case of this batch of oil one full millilitre is equivalent to 21 milligrams of THC. For me, my ideal THC portion is between 10-15 mg in one sitting so I took two activations of oil each “dose” being .3 of an ml and equivalent to 7 mg of THC .
What I loved!
What I loved about this DIY was that it was so easy. Easy to dose, Easy to prepare and Easy to enjoy!
What I would do differently next time?
What I would do differently? Not try to infuse my ice cream on a day that is over 30 degrees while trying to photograph the experience alone! I came close to donating my special treat to the sidewalk.
