Written by Stephanie Hua, the powerhouse chef we can thank for the gourmet brand Mellows, this cookbook serves as a manual for making delicious, sweet, and low-dose edibles. Spanning 30 recipes long, Edibles guides would-be cannabis chefs through crafting delectable cannabis treats in bite-sized portions. The cookbook starts with the basics, covering how to prepare anything from cannabutter to honey. Then, it enters a kind of Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory level, instructing readers how to prepare decadent pavlovas and truffles. Edibles also offers cannabis education by diving into the science of cannabis, perfectly rounding out the whole cooking experience.
You may know Andrea Drummer from Netflix’s “Cooking on High” but even if you haven’t had the chance to binge-watch the show yet, it doesn’t take much to know she’s a world-class cannabis chef! Known for her high-profile cannabis dinner parties in Los Angeles, Drummer is a graduate of Le Cordon Bleu, and that comes across in the Cannabis Cuisine cookbook. Not only does she share exquisite recipes, but also transmits her belief in the art of cannabis. Much like an experienced sommelier, she teaches readers how to pair strains with certain flavour profiles together with specific ingredients for a heavenly combination. While the recipes all have a fine-dining feel, they include various cuisines and can please just about any sophisticated stoner.

The Marley clan all lead clean and healthy lives that feature plenty of green, as we can tell from Cedella Marley’s commentary in the cookbook, which is an impetus for the marriage of cannabis and wellness. Alongside stellar Caribbean recipes, she offers tips for how to include cannabis into nearly every facet of your life for a healthier and happier you.
