125 mouthwatering recipes featuring CBD, hemp, and THC from organic farmers, award-winning chefs, artisans, and food producers across the country.
More than a cookbook, The Art of Cooking with Cannabis is a valuable resource for new inspiration and excitement surrounding cannabis, food, and responsible consumption. Tracey Medeiros introduces the reader to dozens of organic farmers, award-winning chefs, artisans, and food producers who are leading the green revolution by doing their part to demystify cannabis and its culinary use. Individual profiles contain stories from the book’s contributors who come from rural and suburban communities and bustling cities across this nation. These folks have generously shared their personal struggles and successes which have led them to understand the many health and wellness benefits of the cannabis plant and its important role in society.
From chemistry to culinary, the book contains 125 mouthwatering recipes, such as:
Chicken Kale Meatballs with Cherry Tomato and Pesto Sauces from Chef Jordan Wagman
Avocado Mash with Nori and Cucumber from Chef Michael Magliano
CBD-Infused Vegan Gluten-Free Miso Broth from Jessica Catalano
THC- and CBD-Infused Smoked Cheddar with Green Chili Stone-Ground Grits from Chef Kevin Grossi
Sh’mac and Cheese from Carly Fisher
Vegan No-Bake Cashew Cheese Cake from Chef Maria Hines
Simple and beautifully presented spirit-free and spirit cocktails such as “The 700 Club” and “Rebellious” are also featured in the cookbook from contributors including Entente Chicago and Prank Bar.
Recipes are divided into three categories—CBD, Hemp, and THC—each adapted to meet the reader’s cooking and tolerance levels. Insightful sidebars offer informative tips and “how-to” guidance, helping the cook to use cannabis with ease and confidence.

"For real connoisseurs, this is less of a whoa, weed approach to cannabis cuisine and more like a traditional cookbook your gran would keep on her bookshelf. A really cool gran. Here, you'll learn how to safely and successfully incorporate THC and CBD into everything from miso soup to meatballs, sourced from a bevy of chefs who've experimented themselves." —Esquire
"A comprehensive and delicious look at the endless possibilities of the cannabis kitchen, The Art of Cooking with Cannabis brings together the farm-to-table movement and cannabis in a new and unique way. Jam-packed with chef-created recipes featuring cannabis and hemp in a wide variety of techniques and dishes, The Art of Cooking with Cannabis makes cooking with this star ingredient simple and versatile. From desserts to dressing and everything in between, each recipe would be delicious with or without cannabis.
But what really sets this cookbook apart from the pack is Mederios’s detailed storytelling that examines each recipe’s inspiration and tells each chef’s story, while connecting them to the farmers behind the food. In this way, Mederios brings the farm-to-table movement to cannabis, and by breaking the book into regional sections, the reader can see local ingredients, flavors, and trends emerge, making this book as much an anthology of food in the United States as is it culinary cannabis across the country." —Rachel Burkons, co-founder of Altered Plates
