The new year is a time when many people are motivated to make changes in their lives. The most common New Year’s resolutions are exercising more, saving money, and eating healthier. We are going to be talking about cannabis use and fitness this year so keep your eyes open for that. And this month we are going to be sharing some healthy cannabis recipes to add to your cookbook. Today we have an easy crockpot recipe for cannabis bone broth.
Benefits of Bone Broth
Before we jump into the recipe let’s talk about the health benefits of bone broth.
- Nutritious. Rich in vitamins and nutrients like calcium, magnesium, phosphorous, iron, and zinc.
- Supports the Joints. The collagen in the connective tissue of the bones helps to protect our joints (source) and may even help those who already have bone and joint issues like osteoporosis (source).
- Digestion. Some amino acids, like glutamine, that are present in bone broth show promise for helping with digestion and gut issues (like IBS)(source).
- Sleep Aid. The amino acid glycine is a safe therapeutic option to improve sleep (source).
- Possible Weight Loss. Bone broth is high in protein without being a large number of calories. It helps some people to feel fuller longer.
Add the benefits of cannabis and this is the perfect harty winter meal that everyone needs in their back pocket.
Cannabis Bone Broth Recipe
Bone broth is a perfect thing to make in a crockpot and leave overnight. You can make a big batch and have it nearly every day with your dinner, which many do, or add it to your other recipes.
Even though you can leave this in the crockpot for a long time, and we suggest you do to get all the nutrients out of the bones, do check on it semi-regularly as the water will evaporate. Add water as needed.
5 lbs beef bones (or other bones including chicken)
2 carrots scrubbed and cut into pieces
2 onions peeled and cut into wedges
4 cloves garlic peeled
2 celery stalks cut in pieces
4 grams cannabis chopped (alternatively add CBD or THC oil after baking for easier dosing per bowl)
2 bay leaves
salt and black pepper
1/4 cup cider vinegar
- Heat oven to 240C. On a large baking sheet (with sides) combine the bones with the carrots, onions, garlic, celery, and cannabis. Roast for 40 minutes. Baking at this time and temperature will decarb the cannabis while you roast the bones.
- Place the contents of the tray into the bowl of a crockpot. Add the bay leaves, salt, pepper, and cider vinegar.
- Cover with water at least three inches above the contents of the crockpot. Cook for anywhere from 24 to 48 hours. A gentle simmer is perfect.
- Strain the vegetables from the broth. Taste for salt and pepper before serving.
Keeps for one week in the fridge, or up to six months in the freezer. If you want to freeze in an ice cube tray, it makes for a convenient cup of broth or base for your favorite recipe.
