Recipe: Brown Butter Pound Cake with 10 mg CBD per serving

Recipe by Chris Bedrosian

Total Time to make: 3.5 hours. (Preparation: 25 minutes.)

Makes one 8.5 x 4.5 inch loaf


2  sticks organic unsalted butter (8 oz)

6 droppers Flora’s Hemp Extract 500

2 cups organic flour (cake flour works bestsift before measuring)

1 teaspoon baking powder

½ teaspoon  salt

½ cup light brown sugar (packed)

½ cup organic cane sugar

4 large organic eggs

½ teaspoon pure vanilla extract

Directions: Preheat oven to 325℉. Butter and flour a 8.5” x 4.5” loaf pan and set aside.

In a thick-bottom skillet, heat unsalted butter until the milk solids turn DARK brown. Transfer brown butter to heat safe bowl and hold in freezer 15 minutes (Set the timer or you’ll forget!).

In a small bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder and salt and set aside.  

In a large bowl, beat together brown butter, cane sugar and brown sugar until fluffy (about 2 minutes). Add eggs, one by one, beating well between eggs, until they are fully incorporated. Add vanilla and hemp extract and mix well. Stir in flour until just incorporated. Pour batter into loaf pan, bang it a few times (lightly) on the counter to settle the batter and smooth the top.

Bake: 325℉ oven for 60–75 minutes or until toothpick inserted into center comes out clean. Cool in pan for 30 minutes. Extract from pan and cool completely on rack (1 hour).

Calculated CBD: Using Flora’s Hemp Extract 500: 1 dropper = 16 mg of CBD. Cut the cake into 8 slices for 10 mg per slice (8 x 10 = 80. 80/16 = 5)  Remember, some extract will cook off, so Flora says put in 6 droppers.

Hybrid Tech: Lemnis Lighting and the Impact of Hydronic Cooling

Cannabis cultivators have been stuck in a battle in growing for the last two decades: how to eliminate the heat that is generated in cultivation facilities. Many clients have tried to solve this problem with 20-ton air handler units, 48-inch ducts and polytubes penetrating into their greenhouses and indoor spaces. Unfortunately, this has been the price to be paid for a sealed, controlled-environment agriculture facility.

CannaProfile: Honest Marijuana

In January 2008—just a couple of years after the dawn of its medical marijuana movement—Anthony Franciosi moved to Colorado. Including cannabis in the state's infrastructure was new. The potential existed only as an idea yet to manifest. Franciosi had been suffering from sports injuries that he thought could best be treated with a prescription for medical cannabis. Franciosi, however, was interested in participating on a much larger scale; his dream was to produce.

CannaSecurity: Will Your Upcoming Cannabis Grow Be Protected?

With the weather getting nicer and the smell of spring in the air, cannabis growers are beginning to plan their next grow. For years these grows have been “self-insured,” meaning that cannabis farm owners assume the risk if something happens, and have to incur the cost of a loss themselves. However, those days are behind us as cannabis becomes more mainstream and states allow these farmers to establish viable businesses. Because of this, the opportunity for growers to insure their crops has arrived!

Non-cannabis related entrepreneurs have more of a chance in the cannabis industry than they probably realize; there are aspects of some pre-existing businesses that can be applied to the cannabis industry as it grows into a budding industrial market. One benefit of hitching a ride on the cannabis industry bandwagon is that it’s new.  Big business has failed to established a strong foothold facilitating small business ventures to blossom and have a chance of growing with it.

Intellectual property within the cannabis industry is rarely talked about and almost never considered when a new entrepreneur is starting up a business. Trademark protection is considered one of the most difficult aspects of the business and, after a business gets through the registration phase, they’re not necessarily prepared for more of the same type of struggle; this is why most up-starting businesses overlook or are not prepared for this aspect of the business.

Holding The Trump Cards On Industrial Hemp

 Holding The Trump Cards On Industrial Hemp

Donald Trump has taken the oath of office. Cannabis entrepreneurs are holding their breaths to see if a resurgence in prohibitionist sentiment is poised to crush the industry. Much ink has been spilt in speculation over what might happen to the minor variant of cannabis we call marijuana. Comparatively little has been said about what Trumpism could mean for the future of the far more significant part of the cannabis business represented by industrial hemp.
