With the legalization of marijuana becoming more and more popular across the country, there is a race to make a splash in weed based product industry. A race to make the best cannabis cuisine.
The pairing of weed and food has come a long way. It’s gone from stoners mixing THC oil into brownies for to top tier chefs masterfully incorporating bud into quality dishes for unique dining experiences.
While the history of the legalization of marijuana is clouded with racist overtones and unfair treatment to marginalized groups, several of the chefs successfully using weed based recipes are people of color.
Here are some of our favorite chefs who have elevated the game of cannabis cuisine.
Chef Drummer is a Los Angeles-based chef who has been a leader in the field of weed-infused cuisine for years. After establishing herself as a premier chef in L.A., she was introduced to cannabis butter.
Drummer asserts that the infusion of pot in her recipes has made her a better, more precise chef. She is known for using different strains in different dishes but can be found using Blue Dream in more than a few recipes.
2. Scott Durrah
Scott Durrah has been a legend in the cannabis scene for quite some time now. Along with his wife, he opened the first black-owned dispensary in the country. Since then he has been a leader in developing healthy, consistent, and safe cannabis cuisine.
If that’s not enough, he recently announced plans to run for Denver’s city council. This man can do it all.
