It’s not hard to fall in love with guacamole… It’s both smooth and filling, and it has a significant amount of health benefits. So, this infused guacamole recipe will definitely pack a punch! It’s got all your essential amino acids, protein, and fiber content.
Contrary to popular belief, avocados actually have less fat per ounce than lean beef, and one avocado contains less fat than three tablespoons of Italian salad dressing. You could say, it’s not as bad as people think. Plus, this green superfruit’s fats are “healthy fats”, also known as monounsaturated fats. Therefore munching on avocados, could help reduce your risk of heart disease and high cholesterol.
Believe it or not, some may say that avocados are the perfect ingredient for preparing healthy edibles. Let me explain the science… THC is fat-soluble, but not water-soluble, therefore, in order to activate the THC, it is very important to infuse your buds with fatty foods. Normally, this done by using sugary, fatty, or highly processed ingredients. That’s why most edibles you see or hear about are cookies and brownies. However, due to avocados’ unique “healthy fats”, there is now a superior choice of ingredient for those who want to experience the effects of THC without any feeling of guilt. So, fear no more. Pair your cannabis with that guacamole and enjoy that green bowl of health and goodness!

Keep in mind, THC oil amount in this recipe is just a suggestion; the amount you should actually be using could be slightly different based on your tolerance. Proper dosing is very important, yet it’s difficult to get the hang of it especially for a beginner. So, I would suggest you start off with a small portion of one serving and just wait for an hour or two. Only then, you could decide on whether you should consume more.
