Bone broth is a nutrition-packed liquid that can be used as a base for soups and sauces, or as a healthy drink served cold or hot. It's prepared by simmering the bones and connective tissue of animals with a little apple cider vinegar to help release the nutrients from the bones. This superfood can be dated back to the prehistoric ages when humans used to utilize their food supplies to the fullest extent. Bone broth can be made from almost any animal you could think of from pork to veal and shrimp and buffalo and from almost any part of the animal like the gizzards, beaks, and hooves. Keep this in mind when trimming raw meats or before tossing leftover meat or bones into the garbage. You can also use veggie trimmings such as celery or carrots when making the bone broth for a more flavorful and nutritious bone broth. Tightly wrap the leftover cannabis plant material after your next extraction in a cheesecloth in the freezer and drop it into the bone broth when you bring the broth to a low simmer to maximize your cannabis supply! Store the remaining bone broth in a freezer-safe container in the freezer for up to 6 months.

How To Make Cannabis Bone Broth
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: Chicken: 6 hours - 24 hours, Beef: 8 hours - 24 hours
Whole chicken carcass and/or connective tissue, any animal bones and tissue may be used
8 cups water, more if necessary
¼ cup apple cider vinegar
1 tablespoon Himalayan salt
1 tablespoon ground black pepper
2 teaspoons thyme
2 teaspoons sage
2 whole cloves of black garlic
3 full bay leaves
1 cup celery trimmings
1/2 cup cannabis tincture
In a large pot, add the animal carcass and connective tissue and completely cover with water and add the apple cider vinegar.
Next, add the Himalayan salt, ground black pepper, thyme, and sage.
Add the black garlic and the bay leaves. Bring to a boil.
Cover loosely with a lid and reduce the heat to low and bring at a slow simmer. Stir occasionally. The longer the bone broth simmers, the better!
After 4 hours of simmering, remove the broth from the heat.
Add the cannabis tincture, mix well, and allow the broth to cool completely.
Place a strainer inside of a large bowl and strain the bone broth.
Carefully remove the bones and connective tissue from the meat. Throw away the bones and connective tissue. Be extra careful, as there may be very small bones that may cause a choking hazard.
Remove the bay leaves and black garlic from the meat.
Transfer the broth into an airtight container with a lid and store in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. For longer storage time, transfer the broth into a freezer-safe container or an ice cube tray with a lid and store in the freezer for up to 6 months.
