Mile High Mimosa

Mile High Mimosas
Mimosas | Green Box

Our buddies in Bend have been making this potent ginger brew for years. Now their crowd-pleasing brew with bite is back on the market in slick new packaging and three levels of potency 3 mg, 10 mg, and 25 mg. Our go-to mixer of the moment.

Made with cold pressed ginger, Magic Number is a total treat for the senses. Fizzy and sweet with a fresh ginger bite and the added benefit of THC. The ideal social drink for those avoiding alcohol or switching things up between cocktails. Fun on its own or in place of the Ginger beer in a Moscow Mule, lately we’ve been enjoying it with Prosecco and OJ for Mile High Mimosas. Conveniently available in three strengths, 3, 10, or 25 mg of THC per bottle.

HOW IT'S MADE
  • Prep time: 5 minutes
    • Yields: Makes around 3 drinks

Ingredients

– Orange Juice (high pulp prefered)

– 1 Bottle Drink Magic Number Ginger Beer (We used the 25mg)

–  Non-Alcoholic Sparkling Wine or Prosecco (you know which one we used)

– Orange & Lime for Garnish

–  Ten Four Farm’s Mimosa 1Mimosa 2  (for pairing)

Instructions

– Pour orange juice 1/3 of the way up the champagne glass. Top with another 1/3 of the Drink Magic – Number Ginger Beer and then top with Prosecco or Champagne. Garnish with limes and orange slices.

– Pair with a joint or freshly packed bowl of Ten Four Farms Mimosa flowers. We choose Mimosa 1 &  Mimosa 2 for this pairing.

– Enjoy with a loved one or friends!

Intro to Cannabinoids

CANNABINOIDS

After the Strain name, there’s one other piece of information we see on the dispensary shelves. The THC percentage. Sure, higher THC levels are usually an indicator of quality but is THC the most important thing to look for in Cannabis?

Actually, NO!

THC % is a great piece of information to have but it’s not the whole story. The mix and rations of terpenes and other cannabinoids (which includes THC) are going to have a much more pronounced effect than just the THC alone. Luckily, through the magic of chemistry, we can now look into exactly what is in our weed and have a pretty good idea of how our systems will react to it.

The Entourage Effect: It’s best we touch on this first. The cannabis plant has spent hundreds of years perfecting its mix of chemicals and compounds so it’s no surprise that we see the greatest results when we keep it all together. In concert, these oils and cannabinoids work together to create greater effects than they would on their own. More effective, faster acting and longer lasting.

Though we’ve discovered over 100 Cannabinoids in the flower we love, these are the most abundant and most likely to be found on a lab test of the herb you’ve been smoking. Chosen for their interesting or medicinal qualities, this is the handful of major cannabinoids we test for in cannabis.

THC

tetrahydrocannabinol

This is the psychoactive compound, and most pronounced in the bunch. THC has been known to elevate moods all the way up to a sense of euphoria. Even in small amounts it can increase appetites and reduce nausea or inflammation. In larger quantities, you might experience time dilation, which is just a way of saying you can lose track of how long it’s been since you last asked: “what were we just talking about?”.  THC on its own is rather one-note and is really elevated by the other terpenes and cannabinoids present.

CBD

cannabidiol

This is the other major compound in cannabis. Often called the “feel good” part of the plant, CBD gives most people relief from anxiety. CBD is not intoxicating which makes it appealing to folks who are looking for the relief from cannabis but not a THC experience. With THC, especially at that magical 1:1 ratio CBD starts to have the same relaxing, destressing effects as a long bubble bath.

CBG

tetrahydrocannabinol

A minor cannabinoid (usually less than 1% of the flower) CBG is one of the most medicinally interesting cannabinoids. A great vasodilator, CBG reduces eye pressure and inflammation, great for glaucoma patients or those with high blood pressure. Both breeders and scientists are looking have CBG in their sites and we will be seeing more of this cannabinoid the more we reveal its benefits.

CBN

cannabinol

THCA degrades to CBN. So the longer your weed sits around or the more exposure it has to heat and light, the more you’ll get tired instead of stoned. Though this is a rather slow transformation it’s a good reminder to keep your weed well sealed and not to let it sit around for too long.

CBC

cannabichromene

Also a minor cannabinoid, CBC has been shown to have analgesic properties, particularly when partnered with CBD. Also non-intoxicating, CBC has shown to improve moods and is currently being studied as an antidepressant. Like the other beneficial compounds, CBC also shines as an antiviral and antifungal.

THCV

tetrahydrocannabivarin

Known to be more psychoactive and clear-headed than THC, THCV is being studied as an appetite suppressant and stimulant. It’s clear-headed and stimulating effect is prized in some strains but not always what we expect from cannabis. As we dive deeper into THCV don’t be surprised if you see an espresso spiked with this stimulating cannabinoid for a doubly invigorating brew. Vaporized at higher temps, you’ll want to turn your vaporizer up to really take advantage.

CBL-A

cannabicyclol Acid

Cannabicyclol acid is both anti-inflammatory and anti-tumor, but most remarkable because it withstands super high temps. Luckily for us, edibles like brownies that have been in a not so gentle heating process (the oven) still hold this beneficial cannabinoid.

Keep an eye out for our Terpene primer to further dive into this beautifully complex plant!

707 HEADBAND x PLATINUM GSC

This flower cultivated by Ten Four Farms has one of the most pleasing scents we’ve encountered. Sweet and bitter dark chocolate notes under a base of candle-shop rich baking spices and a hint of sour cream cake. Combining the cerebral aspects of the 707 Headband and the relaxing euphoria of the Girl Scout Cookies strain, this is a supreme example of modern cannabis.

BANNER #3

CULTIVAR: Nelson & Co.

Expect big flavor and pronounced effect with this flower. Ideal for movie night (or any other couch-bound activity) we love this flower for the sheer amount of sparkly trichomes in every nook and cranny. A cross between east coast’s famous Strawberry Cough and all around favorite OG Kush, this strain leans heavily on those refreshing Kush notes with a top note of red fruit and berry bush. The best expression of this strain we’ve come across, cultivated by Nelson and Co.

Grilled Peach and Basil Arnold Palmer

Cannabis Infused Grilled Peach Arnold Palmer Warm summer nights should be filled with chill conversations at backyard barbecues, while having friendly joint rolling competitions around a homemade bonfire. When summertime hits and those humid days start to get to you, how can you pass up a refreshing cup of iced tea or lemonade? Now that it’s mid July and it’s starting to heat up; this cannabis enhanced drink would be great addition to burger fresh off the grill or as a midday thirst quencher. All you’re barbecuing buddies will be begging for another pitcher after they get a taste of this tantalizing grilled peach tea!

We’ve all been patiently waiting to make this cannabis infused grilled peach and basil Arnold Palmer; with all the proper ingredients we think it’ll get two thumbs up from the Green Box team. Sip it while sunbathing by the pool or stash it in your canteen for a kayaking adventure. Just like Arnold, regular iced tea can get a bit boring and bland. By mixing it up a little and adding a few new ingredients, we can turn our cannabis concoction into a traditional summertime recipe.

Grilled Peach and Basil Arnold Palmer

  • Prep time: 20 minutes
  • Total time: 20 minutes + time to chill in the fridge

Yields: Makes around 6 cups

Ingredients

  • 2 peaches, cut into wedges
  • 5-6 cups water
  • 5 Bud Brother’s Apothecary Buddha’s Berry or Enlightened Apricot tea bags
  • 1 cup fresh basil leaves
  • 1 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup Hive honey
  • zest from 1 lemon

Instructions

Preheat the grill to high heat.

Grill the peaches until soft and caramelized, about 2-3 minutes per side. Remove from the grill.

Bring two cups of water to a boil. Remove from the heat and add the tea bags + basil. Cover and steep for 10 minutes. Strain the tea into a pitcher. Discard the tea bags and basil.

Meanwhile, place the grilled peaches and lemon juice in a blender and blend until completely smooth. If desired, you can strain the mixture through a thin kitchen cloth to remove the pulp. Just make sure to squeeze all the juice out.

To the pitcher with the basil tea, add the remaining 3 cups cold water, the peach/lemon mixture, the honey, lemon zest and bourbon (if using). Place in the fridge and chill until cold, at least one hour. Taste, if too sweet add another cup of cold water or more ice cubes.

Serve over ice and garnish with grilled peaches, basil and lemons if desired. Enjoy!
