Come check out these five tasty marijuana recipes geared for those enthusiasts that are currently on ketogenic diets!

This particular diet makes the body burn up fats as opposed to carbohydrates as a fuel source for the brain.

The ketones are then used by the brain instead of glucose, which ultimately results in a marked decrease in seizure activity for those affected.
