- Heat a small saucepan over low heat and add the ground cannabis to the heavy cream and let it simmer for 30 minutes. Strain the cream from the cannabis flakes and set aside.

- Drain the potatoes using a strainer, then using a ricer, put the potatoes through and keep the shredded potatoes in a large bowl. Let the potatoes cool at room temperature.
- Add flour to the potatoes and mix it into dough. If the dough seems soaked, add a little more flour. Roll the dough into 10 logs that are an inch thick. Cut the logs lengthwise into ¼-inch pieces and toss with a bit of flour.
- To make the mushroom mix, add olive oil to a large saucepan. Add onions and sauté for 3 minutes. Season with salt and crushed red pepper. Add mushroom and cook until they are golden brown (should take 5 minutes). Add wine to the pan and swirl it around to scrape up any cooked bits. Now add garlic and parsley, and cook for 3 minutes. Add beef stock and cook for 20 minutes over medium-low heat.
- Add the cannabis-infused cream to the mix and simmer for another few minutes.
- Add gnocchi to a large pot of boiling water and cook until the gnocchi float to the surface. This should take less than 2 minutes).
- Drain the pot and serve with the sauce and freshly grated Parmesan cheese. Enjoy the dish with friends and let it warm your soul!
