Recipe: Cannabis-Infused Guacamole
When it comes to dips, guacamole is the average person go-to choice. Refreshing, nutritious and a perfect addition to every party or get together, guacamole is a great dish with many health benefits.
These benefits come from the main ingredient of guacamole – the avocado. Native to South Central Mexico, the fruit of the avocado tree has many positive traits. It has 18 essential amino acids, which qualify it as a complete protein. This protein is easier to digest than animal protein because of the avocados high fiber content. The fruit contains monounsaturated fats that raise your level of high-density lipoproteins which help reduce cholesterol and the risk of heart disease. And as if that isn't enough, avocados are a naturally perfect ingredient for making cannabis edibles. THC is fat-soluble, meaning that THC needs fattier food to be activated, which is the main reason behind all those high-fat, high sugar cookies and brownies. Avocado really does the trick concerning THCs need for fats and is a much healthier alternative.
Now you probably can't wait to start cooking after reading this, so let's get started. Cannabis will be added in the dish by means of basic cannabis olive oil, which we will cover first.

Olive oil will keep up to a month if refrigerated in an airtight container.

1 red onion
2 garlic cloves
1 cup of cherry tomatoes
1⁄3 cup of cilantro

½ teaspoon of cayenne pepper

Remove the skin and seeds from the avocados and dice the tomatoes and onion into small cubes. Finely mince the garlic cloves and squeeze the juice out of the limes. The cilantro needs to be finely chopped and cut the chili into rounds. Combine all the ingredients into a blender and blend until the mixture is fine and smooth.
