Celebrate Pi Day with This Infused Compote Recipe!
By Jessica Nudo
You probably woke up to the internet obsessing over dessert this morning, and that probably left you feeling confused and hungry.
If you’re unfamiliar with Pi Day, it’s a celebration of math which takes place globally on March 14th (3/14). Oh, and then there’s actual PIE. You see where I’m going with this one?
So what does it mean for us cannabis enthusiasts? Well, for one math accounts for much of what we do in cannabis. Formulating the perfectly dosed edible requires math. Growing plants requires a mix of math and science, so you could say we are all a bit nerdy in one way or another.
According to piday.org, Pi (Greek letter “π”) “is the symbol used in mathematics to represent a constant — the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter — which is approximately 3.14159. Pi Day is an annual opportunity for math enthusiasts to recite the infinite digits of Pi, talk to their friends about math, and to eat pie.”
Now that you know a bit more about this nerdy annual event, get festive and celebrate with a slice of infused gooey goodness of your choice!
Since committing to baking an entire PIE takes way too much time (and it’s tougher to gauge how much cannabis butter is evenly distributed), we recommend going with a compote to top your serving.
Since dosing takes precedence above all else, allow us to help you indulge responsibly. We at Her(B) Life say: let them eat (infused) pie! Here’s a recipe to make that happen, courtesy of Magical Butter.
