My wife gave me a Vitamix a while back, and I’m in love with it. I’ve been making smoothies regularly for the past six months or so—we both got our health and fitness on track, and it’s a great way to add some extra nutrients, supplements, and greens to our diet as we’re trying to stay energized. An extra plus is the benefit of drinking a cannabis-infused smoothie.
As it happens, smoothies are also a great way to infuse some cannabis into your day. A friend of mine introduced me to a whole new form factor for cannabis: edible powders. She mentioned Mondo Meds, and I knew I had to try it immediately. I’ve been tossing a 5 milligram serving into my smoothies, and it’s the perfect fast-acting dose for sore muscles (not to mention taking the edge off of any daily anxiety) without a head high that can result in a loss of focus. Mondo Meds are made with Blue Dream flowers, which I personally love for daytime use. It also tastes great in my cannabis-infused smoothie.
