No dip in existence holds a candle to guacamole. Superior to salsa, better than baba ghanouj, greater than ranch, nothing solves a munchies craving quite like guacamole. No one has ever said the words "there's too much guacamole" for good reason, and now the best snack ever has gotten even better, through the magic of cannabis.
Below is a recipe for "Ganja Guacamole," created by Culinary Cannabis, a recipe for guacamole that will make you want to eat more guacamole, in a deliciously amazing cycle of munchies.
At it's core, making Ganja-Guac is just like making any other guacamole, meaning you can deviate from instructions, save two key ingredients. To stoner-fy th guac, you will need to put in a teaspoon of cannabis oil, and 1.5-2 grams of crushed marijuana, preferably shake.

A director of strategy and e-commerce mentioned that Canada Post already delivers a controlled substance (alcohol) for the SAQ and LCBO, so the company is equipped to handle marijuana.
Canada Post claims it is already able to check the age and identity of individuals, a requirement if marijuana is going to be sent to doorsteps.
Whether or not anyone will want to deliver marijuana using Canada Post remains to be seen, as the company admits a formal study on the potential popularity of cannabis-delivery with Canada Post users hasn’t been performed.
Existing Canada Post users may not be too keen on marijuana delivery, but something tells me a lot of people who never used snail mail will be enticed to if cannabis is something they can send and receive, legally.
No seriously. Weed won't be legalized until next year, but CASTA, the Canadian Air Transport Security Authority are saying that starting next week, it will be possible to bring weed with you on an airplane when arriving to Canada, without having to worry about getting arrested.
According to TVA, CASTA sent out memos to their supervisors which read:
Beginning October 2017, the police will only be called in the following cases: If the marijuana has been abandoned at one of the safety check points, or if the quantity of marijuana exceeds what can be fit in a 1L Bag.
The reason for the change is that more and more people are bringing medical marijuana with them and checking all those prescriptions and distinguishing between legal and illegal weed is simply too much of a hassle.
***But just to be clear***
The change only goes into effect October 1st 2017
Marijuana is still illegal in Canada, at least until next July.
DO NOT try to bring marijuana into another country. CASTA only oversees bag checks for luggage arriving into Canada.
More academically titled “Commercial Cannabis Production,” the graduate certificate program will be offered by Niagara College in Ontario next fall. Again, this is Canada’s first graduate degree in the commercial production of marijuana.
This isn’t some lofty goal or pipe-dream on the school’s part, either. The Commercial Cannabis Production has already been approved by the Ontario Ministry of Advanced Education and Skills Development, so it’s definitely happening.
“The Commercial Cannabis Production program reflects the College’s mandate to develop responsive applied learning programs that address industry needs” said Niagara College president Dan Patterson in a press release.
According to the website for the program, which is part of Niagara College’s School of Environment and Horticulture, students will learn the “biology and cultural practices of cannabis production.”
The program will adhere to the many regulations set out by Health Canada, so that graduates will have the necessary skillset to become a Licensed Producer.
Some of the courses that will be available to students include “Cannabis Production Science I,” “Biology and Evolution of Cannabis,” and “Introduction to Analysis of Cannabis.”
You do need some sort of academic background to get into the program, however, so don’t assume any weed-smoker can enrol.
Niagara College says the program will be open to anyone with a diploma/degree in agribusiness, agricultural science, environmental science, horticulture, or “an acceptable combination of education and experience.”
It’s doubtful that smoking up in your parents basement since you’ve been 14 counts, but there’s only one way to find out.
All jokes aside, this college program proves that the marijuana industry is going to become a viable entrepreneurial option once weed is legalized next summer.
The cannabis industry is going to need highly trained professionals to meet the demand legalization will bring, so it’s good to hear some colleges thought far enough ahead to create a formal program to educate the marijuana growers of the future.
