Do you have trouble falling asleep, staying asleep?
Would you like to wake up after an amazing night’s sleep with no side effects…just get out of bed feeling refreshed and ready to face the day?
Would you like sex to be better than ever?
I have found the answer to the above questions. I would call it a miracle. Cannabis brownies aka pot brownies. I had suffered from insomnia for about five years, ever since post menopause had set in and finding this effective and easy solution was indeed a miracle come true.
It is an amazing sleep aid which has changed my life by allowing me to sleep through the night, every night. I wake up feeling refreshed with no side effects what so ever. It has increased the quality of my life substantially.
The cannabis (marijuana) plants can be legally grown in your back yard with a maximum of four plants per household. The species of plant is important. There are the hallucinative cannabis with higher THC which you don’t want. Make sure you get the sleep inducing cannabis plants which has hardly any psychoactive THC. One plant will yield enough buds to produce the amount of oil required to bake a few dozen 9 x 13” pans of brownies. The oil keeps well in the fridge. Anywhere cool, dark and sealed is the best storage method.
You can buy the oil or butter to make the brownies or easily make your own oil. I use the Magical Butter maker (MagicalButter.com) which takes the guess work out of making the cannabis oil for my brownie recipe plus it can be used for producing seasonal oils, butters and tinctures. I’ve tried using different recipes or straight cannabis oil sublingually under my tongue but I found just eating one of these brownies thirty minutes before bedtime the most effective way of getting a good night’s sleep. It may take you a week of experimenting with the dosage until you get it right. Don’t give up because it is so worth it once you have the dosage customized to your needs.
It’s best to start with half a brownie and work your way up to a dose that will get you sleeping thru the night. Since it can take 30-90 minutes for edibles to kick in I strongly advise that you wait at least 24 hours before taking another dose. Metabolism, diet, sex, weight and tolerance to cannabis can all affect onset time.
The Magic Butter maker comes with all the instructions and items you’ll need to get cooking. I prefer the following brownie recipe. It is really important to under bake the brownies rather than over bake them which can decrease the sleep effect of the cannabis edible. Also, it is beneficial to stir the batter really well to make sure there is an even dispersal of oil throughout the recipe. I bake the brownies in a 9” x 13” glass Pyrex dish.After the brownies are baked I cut them into fifty pieces.I store them in an airtight container in the freezer identified very clearly that they are pot brownies.
