Cannabis Cook Books Are on the Rise Since Legalizations
Lets just cut out the munchie middle man and just get high while eating. First, lets make sure we follow the instructions.
High Times magazine is the pot lovers dream in a magazine, but did you know they have a cook book? "The Official High Times Cannabis Cookbook." That's right its official so you know it has some damn good stuff in there. Apparently this new legalization has a huge increase for cannabis cook books.
"When I sell books personally at events like Seattle Hempfest and Denver County Fair, response has been huge in those states that have newly legalized, and I will sell hundreds of copies over a weekend," says Elise McDonough, author of the cook book.
She has a new book out this summer called "Marijuana for Everybody" which includes a chapter on cooking with cannabis, as well as advice on selecting edibles from newly legal retailers in Washington state and Colorado. "I think as the legalization juggernaut continues to roll across the nation, you're going to see a lot more interest and a lot more books," says McDonough.
"The Official High Times Cannabis Cookbook", has sold over 35,000 copies. It includes the standard brownies that everyone knows about, but definitely more than that. Pot Pesto, Chicken Cordon Bleu and Stoned Stuffed Jalapeno Peppers. I got to admit the peppers sound deliciously trippy.
