Happy Cinco de Mayo from your friends at The Healing Co.! Believe it or not, this is one of our favorite days of the year (next to 420, of course!). We’ll be whipping up batches of jalapeno margaritas, tacos and a big ole bowl of this cannabis infused guacamole for dinner tonight.
Haven’t heard of Cinco de Mayo before? Let us fill you in!
Cinco de Mayo, or the fifth of May, is a holiday that celebrates the date of the Mexican army’s May 5, 1862 victory over France at the Battle of Puebla during the Franco-Mexican War. The day, which falls on Tuesday, May 5 in 2020, is also known as Battle of Puebla Day. While it is a relatively minor holiday in Mexico, in the United States, Cinco de Mayo has evolved into a commemoration of Mexican culture and heritage, particularly in areas with large Mexican-American populations.
We Canadians love Cinco de Mayo just as much as our Southern neighbors and take it as an opportunity to celebrate a culture that is near and dear to our hearts.
This recipe uses out THC or CBD tincture and can easily be adapted to your personal preferences and tolerance level. If you are planning on infusing other dishes, we recommend using the CBD tincture for the guacamole because who just has a little guacamole?! You’ll polish off this bowl in no time!
