Subj: Cannabis butter is a legal spread
CANNABIS BUTTER IS A LEGAL SPREAD
Garlic butter. Peanut butter. Or just butter. All may be
household names. Now farmers in the Baltic state of Latvia
want to introduce a hitherto unknown butter, cannabis butter,
to the world.
"I love it, especially like my grandma used to make," Latvian
farmer Dainis Lagzdins said as he invited AFP to taste the
dark green butter, a local specialty made of cannabis seed,
which he calls a "miracle of taste and flavor."
"Mmm, the taste is heavenly," he said.
Latvian farmers use centuries-old recipes to make the butter
or spread at home, sometimes using only soaked, roasted and
milled cannabis seed, sometimes mixing it together with oil
Latvians love it. And unlike the soft drug cannabis, it's
Latvians usually buy it from farmers or at farmers' markets.
The speciality also appears on the shelves of big
supermarkets, but not so regularly.
Now Lagzdins, the director of the Iecavnieks company, has
ambitious plans from the tiny Latvian village of Iecava, 44km
south of the capital Riga, to introduce this hitherto unknown
product to the world.
"Russian and Finnish salesmen have already shown an interest
in our cannabis spread," Lagzdins said, saying he was
slightly concerned about whether he would be able to supply
the specialty in large quantities.
He is currently finetuning his recipe, but swears by its
health qualities -- it does not contain milk proteins, or
cholesterol, while cannabis seeds are a natural antioxidant.
Once prepared it can be stored for half a year.
Preparing good cannabis butter is not easy. It is mainly done
by hand in 18 different steps.
Although cannabis butter and the cannabis seeds used to make
it are legal, Latvia's cannabis fields are under strict
controls, and farmers have to get permission to grow cannabis
and can only grow it in the open air.
Lagzdins started to grow cannabis in large quantities last
year, mixing the seeds with seeds brought from England.
