For the Foodies and the DIY at Home Edible Cook (The Cannabis-Infused Food Blog)
For cannabis-infused foods: try out Sous Weed Like many great cannabis creators and curators, Sous Weed’s inspiration was born out of injury. Sous Weed’s creator, Monica Lo, herniated a disc and was in search of a holistic pain management option. That’s when she decided to take her professional skills into the cannabis space. Monica utilized her knowledge of the Sous-vide cooking method to infuse foods with cannabis. Now, her creative team works together to produce curated recipes and content to encourage at-home edible creations. In their words “When you do-it-yourself, you have the freedom to dose your own snacks and meals to your personal preference”. Want to check out a recent recipe?
