Marijuana, Edible

Cookin’ with grass: Six of the Best Cannabis Cookbooks

People have been cooking with marijuana since before the 60’s. Back in the day, though, it wasn’t quite as sophisticated as it is now. Someone would throw a pile of pot into the brownie batter and that was it. Folks would get high, but the flavor of the brownie left a little to be desired. These days, chefs from all over the country have devised ways to infuse cannabis into just about any dish you can imagine. Here are 6 of my favorite cannabis cookbooks. Word of advice: More than a few recipes in these books taste so good you may not notice any cannabis flavor. This may lead you to eat more than you should. There aren’t many things more unpleasant than being way too stoned from eating marijuana, so please be careful. Enjoy.
