Get High with the Turkey This Thanksgiving
By Herb Green
We live in a very different world now that cannabis is legal. Just ten short years ago it would have been heresy, the talk of a drug addled madwoman, to suggest to mom and dad that, “perhaps we feature a Turkey during Thanksgiving dinner that gets us all ripped?” But today, my parents would totally go for it. Let’s be honest, what age group is the fast growing subset of cannabis shoppers right now? That’s right, senior citizens.
Our senior shoppers love the edibles. So why not make your actual Turkey a little special this year by infusing it with some THC oil? If your meaty offering takes away your guests’ anxiety or aches and pains, in addition to filling their bellies, isn’t that a win/win?
Get your fry on
What most people don’t know is that there is a foolproof way to make a THC-infused Turkey that not only blows your mind, but also your taste buds. How? First, inject the bird with THC-infused olive oil using a meat injection needle. Then fry it!
That’s right, I said fry it. If you haven’t had fried Turkey you are missing out on one of life’s food delicacies. It is the only way I can stomach Turkey now – it is that much better than baking. And since it doesn’t sit in a 400-degree oven for 3-plus hours, it doesn’t ruin the THC.
Frying Turkeys is serious business though and if you don’t follow protocol someone could get seriously hurt. You could burn down the neighborhood! Here is a good primer for how to fry a THC Turkey, from the Cannabis Cheri blog.
What you pair that tasty bird with is up to you. Just a word of caution – don’t spike the desserts with THC! You’ll already be high from dinner – no need to double down.
