For those who suffer from chronic pain will understand the effect it has on your day-to-day life. Not just the obvious pain, but also all the ripple effects that slice through your very existence. Your general mood is greatly affected by pain, even if you’re trying your best to suppress it. Now imagine not being able to get a full night sleep… Ever.
Loss of sleep is one of the biggest things that can reduce your body’s ability to repair itself properly. That old saying ”A full night sleep does the body good” is exactly right on the mark. Not getting proper rest will eventually cause you to be moody, irritable, and sometimes down right mean. Loss of focus, energy, and creativity go first for me when my pain gets out of hand and I can’t sleep. I suffer constant pain from muscle spasms in my lower back so stretching, massage, and chiropractic care along with a good regimen of medical cannabis, keeps me feeling symptom-free most of the time.
After the initial pain from my accident subsided, I started suffering from major sleep loss. I felt like I was in a cloudy bubble all the time. I was there, but not really there. I eventually got depressed and lost all creativity and drive. But then I gained access to medical cannabis here in Florida and everything changed. I started crossing my foodie side with medical cannabis as you may have read in other articles of mine. I like making medicating with cannabis interesting by infusing it in food as a daily activity for me and as a form of therapy.
How to make cannabis infused Snoreo Samoas
I can now release a recipe I’ve been working on for a while. It’s an after dinner sleepy time treat. I kept changing different things with the recipe until just last week when I tried something different. My recipe is finally complete... For those of you who love coconut, you’ll love this one! I want to share with you my take on the classic Girl Scout cookie, “Samoas." Only, this one is made with Oreo cookies, coconut shavings, buttercream frosting, almond butter, and of course indica-infused coconut oil. So, clean up your kitchen and get ready to make SNOREO SAMOAS!
For this recipe I wanted to get an indica-based concentrate to add to the sedative effects I’m looking for. So, I reached out one of our good friends, Tara, at Curaleaf Florida for something that fit the bill. Well, she told me that they had something new coming out soon and that she’d look into it. Low and behold, I got two 425mg syringes of their new 85% concentrate made from the strain Taffie. I have never had this strain before, so I was very excited to give it a try. As I’ve already made this recipe before writing this article, I can say it’s a definite winner using the Taffie concentrate. You can use whatever your favorite concentrate is for this recipe, however, I do suggest trying the 85% concentrate from Curaleaf if it’s available to you. Let’s get to this already…

Assembling the Snoreo Somoas
That should get you 36 cookies with about 23.6mg of THC in each one. Cut them into fours for microdosing or pop a few down to get a really good night’s sleep.
As always, start off low and slow at first. Work your way up from there to suit your personal needs.
