I know what you are thinking without you saying a word: “Why would I waste my cannabutter on a cream of celery soup, Laurie?”
But this soup will change your mind about cream of celery soup — it’s a valid use of your valuable cannabutter, I promise.

Personally I don’t mind a crunchy celery stick, particularly when it’s sticking out of a Bloody Mary, but this recipe is going to change the way we all think about this least-loved member of the apiaceae family, which also includes carrots and parsley. (Speaking of: This is a family of plants with hollow stems. Weird.)
Although the soup has some cannabutter, the co-star of the show (alongside the celery) is ABV — or already-vaped weed. I have a terrific vape machine that has gotten me hooked. Well, not hooked, that’s just wrong to say, but I am totally into vaping.
If you are not familiar, a vaporizer is used to extract the active ingredients in your cannabis without burning it. My table-top vape machine from VapeXhale is fantastic. The vapor path is made of glass, which allows for a pure smoke. I had a dinner party last week, and we vaped some awesome weed before dinner. During the meal we vaped a combo of weed and thyme, which was a prominent flavor in our roasted lamb dinner — a super way to enjoy our machine.
I infused this celery soup with Grape Ox, an indica-dominant strain that has a delightful high; Next thing I knew I was binge watching “House of Cards,” which was a pleasure after this tasty treat.
