For new cannabis users there’s more ways to medicate than ever. Not that long ago, most people’s experience with cannabis was little more than asking a friend to get a nondescript bag of buds from that friend with a hookup. Now, there’s a wide range of products available from dried flower to transdermal patches to chewing gum, sodas, oils, tinctures and of course, edibles.
Ask any average person walking down the street about the first they think of when you say the word ‘edible’ and they’ll probably say something like pot brownies. So much has changed in the world of edibles in recent years. You could fill a grocery store with all the different cannabis-infused foods that are now available. And classically trained chefs are getting into the weed industry as well using their understanding of complimenting flavors to make cannabis a feature ingredient.
It’s important to note, cooking with cannabis or eating cannabis doesn’t always mean getting high. More often than not, that’s true. However, the more we learn about other compounds in the plant like CBD or CBG, the more we’re learning to work with these non-psychoactive compounds to get them into our bodies orally.
