Spice up your taco night with this healthy cannabis-infused taco seasoning recipe that is made with anti-inflammatory spices and decarbed cannabis herb for a delicious natural seasoning.
Infused Taco Seasoning
Tacos are one of my family’s absolute favorite meals. We enjoy tacos at least once a week, if not more. And as you probably already know, the foundation of any truly delicious taco recipe is the seasoning.
After working at it for months, I can say I’ve finally nailed down the perfect recipe for combining two of the things I most love. Allow me to introduce the all-natural, gluten-free, homemade cannabis-infused taco seasoning.
It’s the perfect match for anyone craving a delicious spicy flavor combined with blissful relaxation!
Making Cannabis Seasoning
Why incorporate cannabis into taco seasoning?
For most people, adding cannabis to taco seasoning is actually more medicinal than recreational than you might think. Many of my clients incorporate cannabis into their everyday cooking in order to naturally manage anxiety, pain, and autoimmune conditions.
You probably already know this, but if you’re not, cannabis has become a pretty popular way for people who live with stress, depression, and anxiety to even things out, especially using edibles.
Some studies suggest it actually helps to lower the cortisol in your brain, which is the hormone known to induce stress. If you can do that while enjoying your favorite healthy foods, why not take advantage?
Of course, this cannabis-infused taco seasoning is also great for those who want to use cannabis recreationally for general enjoyment and relaxation.
What this recipe does is combine two of the things I’m most passionate about with my homemade recipes: cannabis and healthful ingredients.
Combining cannabis and healthy ingredients allows us to create something healthier than what you’d find at the store and puts you in control of the ingredients. That means you have full control of the amount of cannabis you personally need, and you have control of the quality ingredients you choose to use.
This recipe is 100% all-natural, gluten-free and corn-free making it vegan and Paleo-friendly, unlike many of the prepackaged options you find in the store. You also have full control over the amount of sodium you add, so you can adjust it based on your personal needs.
That’s one of the best things about homemade recipes. Not only do they just taste better, but you actually get to use fresh, healthy ingredients as opposed to what you’d find in most pre-made seasonings from the store.
Prepackaged seasonings are often just full of artificial ingredients and high amounts of sodium. As with most things, you’re usually better off making them from scratch.
Eat Healthy & Ease Anxiety
What I love most about this recipe is that it’s a perfect example of how eating healthy and managing anxiety can be done at the same time.
It’s actually just one of the many anxiety-relieving recipes I have here on the blog. You can find more recipes like this in my free Anti-Anxiety Meal Plan, click to download now.
