Happy New Year! If you’re like most Americans, you’ve probably set a New Years Resolution to help you live your best life in 2021.
According to data analyst Jamie Ballard of YouGov, “The most common resolutions for US adults as we head into 2021 are doing more exercise (50%), losing weight (48%), saving more money (44%), improving diet (39%), and pursuing a career ambition (21%).”
For the 39% of Americans who are interested in improving their diet, we’ve got some fun cannabis-infused recipe ideas to help you get (and stay) on track throughout the whole year, and sneaky ways to pack plenty of cannabinoids into your day without the caloric baggage.
Easy Cannabis Salad Dressing and Marinades
To simplify cannabis-infused salad dressings, consider our brand new Champagne Vinegar & Olive Oil Infusion Kit. It combines world-class olive oil in Blood Orange and Citrus Habanero flavors, with Champagne Vinegar made from Trebbiano grapes.
For a refreshing, effortlessly infused salad dressing: simply decarboxylate your plant material using the Ardent Nova or FX, then allow your material to infuse into the flavored oil of your choice. Strain out your material and make an easy salad dressing using a 2:1 ratio of oil to vinegar. Dress it up with black pepper, herbs, chopped garlic, or other aromatics of your choosing. Use for salads, sandwiches, grilled vegetables, meats, fish, and more.
The included oil has a significantly higher smoke point than most olive oils on the market, due to the olives’ early harvest time and high antioxidant count, making the oils in this kit usable for sauteing (and even frying on cheat days.)
The Champagne Vinegar & Olive Oil Infusion Kit is 10% off for a limited time using code NEWYEAR10.

One of the most easy and foolproof methods of preparation and consumption is to make cannabis capsules for daily dosing.
It’s as easy as decarbing your plant material, grinding it up, and stuffing it into the capsule size of your choice. If you need your capsules to be stronger, consider using kief or concentrate to fill each capsule.
Add a bit of oil to your capsules for added bioavailability, or simply eat something with healthy fats (like avocado) to boost your body’s cannabinoid absorption.
MCT Oil Tincture
By now, you’ve probably heard everyone in your life (especially on the keto diet) singing the praises of MCT oil.
Not only is MCT oil a delicious, bioavailable base for CBD, CBG, and THC tinctures, but it also makes you feel full for a longer period of time. Consider a dropper full of your favorite cannabinoid in the morning, afternoon, and evening for their wellness benefits and to help kick unhealthy cravings.
