What’s good Greenies and welcome to another tasty Tainted Tuesday from me, ThisBuds4You. This week we’re going to go with a slammin’ savory dish, soup. Yep, canna-soup, shrimp bisque to be exact. I really feel for all you poor folks out there that have shellfish allergies or just don’t care for shellfish all together. Shellfish is awesome, especially when it’s paired with cannabuttery goodness. This soup takes a little bit of time to put together but your extra efforts will pay off in the end, this bisque is the business.

Cook time: 45 minutes
