Chapter 2 · 5 min read

During the pandemic year of 2020, overall cookbook sales in the U.S. jumped 17 percent from 2019. With people stuck at home for most of the year, over 250 thousand cookbooks were sold in 2020, according to figures from NPD BookScan, as reported by the New York Times.

Cooking at home with cannabis also saw a significant spike in popularity in 2020, thanks to the very same reason. Here we break down 7 of the best cooking with cannabis books that we’ve encountered, as well as some online references. Without further ado, here is HashDash's unofficial cannabis-infused cookbook list.

1. Cooking With Cannabis By Laurie Wolf - $14 On Amazon

The New Yorker called Laurie Wolf “the Martha Stewart of Cannabis”, which is pretty high praise. But after looking through the 70 recipes in her book Cooking With Cannabis: Delicious Recipes for Edibles and Everyday Favorites, that high praise checks out.

The book is affordable, but don’t let that fool you into thinking this is diner cuisine. We love that Wolf skips the stoner stereotypes, and delivers high-quality recipes that will impress just about any foodie who happens to be a cannabis lover.

2. Cannabis Cocktails, Mocktails, and Tonics by Warren Bobrow - $12 on Amazon

Cannabis-infused beverages are a multi-billion dollar market in an industry that is experiencing some significant growth. High-end beverages without alcohol content are a great way to consume cannabis and make a great addition to your infused meal. Bobrow starts the book off by outlining the essential process of decarbing your buds before you get to work in the kitchen.

We also loved how Bobrow outlines that cannabis is a social substance. The book isn’t just high-end fancy drinks, either. Included in the book are how to infuse your daily coffee or tea, and make refreshing lemonade with that special mood enhancer.

3. Cannabis Cuisine By Andrea Drummer - $18 on Amazon

Andrea Drummer is a graduate of Le Cordon Bleu, was a contestant on the Netflix show Cooking on High, and is the co-owner of Elevation VIP Co-Op. Drummer’s business caters to high-end cannabis dinner parties in Los Angeles, and the recipes in this book show it.

We loved how Drummer views cannabis as an ingredient, albeit a very important one. Drummer inspires home chefs with her knowledge of how specific terpenes in cannabis pair with the delicious flavors in appetizers, main courses, and deserts.

4. The Cannabis Kitchen Cookbook by Robin Griggs Lawrence - $13 on Amazon

Griggs Lawrence was ahead of her time because her book The Cannabis Kitchen Cookbook: Feel-Good Food for Home Cooks was published back in 2015. Featuring step-by-step infused oils, and dishes that are easy to follow, the author offers 100 recipes.

Griggs Lawrence wrote this one from brunch to snacks to mocktails with home cooks in mind. She also added dosing recommendations and a cultivar profile guide, which we loved.

5. Baked: Over 50 Tasty Marijuana Treats by Yzabetta Sativa - $25 On Amazon

Baked - Over 50 Tasty Marijuana Treats by Yzabetta Sativa.jpg

Although the author put out a second version of this book, the first edition is a good jumping-off point for cooking with cannabis. Yzabetta Sativa, which we’re convinced is a pseudonym, offers no-nonsense advice on how to cook with the world’s most versatile plant.

The author’s honesty includes that cannabis cooking is a bit of a learning curve. She says this is because it is difficult to handle due to its flakey consistency and texture and doesn’t dissolve in water. The book’s recipe for Aloha Hawaiian Bread is making us hungry.

6. Cooking with Herb: 75 Recipes for the Marley Natural Lifestyle by Cedella Marley and Raquel Pelzel - $23 on Amazon

Growing up with a legendary reggae musician for a dad can instill a lot in you. That’s exactly the case for Cedella Marley, daughter of the late great Bob Marley. Marley and her co-author share the notion that cannabis is a part of a healthy lifestyle, offering clean eating with green. The book has your basics for making oils but offers some island flare with big flavors and unique, healthy recipes.

7. Edibles: Small Bites for the Modern Cannabis Kitchen by Stephanie Hau - $23 on Amazon

This one stood out to us because it puts the flavors first, and normalizes micro-dosing and low-dose dishes that sound delicious. This one is perfect as an entry-level guide for the inexperienced home cook that would rather focus on the flavors. The Spiced Superfood Truffles recipe sounds like a great addition to the holiday party with family members who are new to the plant medicine.

8. Free Online Sources

Of course, not everyone wants to spend money on a cannabis cookbook if they’re not positive it’s going to be something they can stick with long-term. Thankfully, this is where the wonderful world of online cannabis cooking blogs comes in. Some of our favorite online sources for canna-cooking include:

Pinterest – Pinterest has been a great resource for many years, basically no matter what your interest is. Cooking with cannabis is no different. Some of the best cannabis cooks post mouth-watering photos along with easy-to-follow recipes that typically call for infused butter or oil.

Sous Weed – Cooking with cannabis can bring a ton of flavor to almost any dish, but that doesn’t mean you have to eat unhealthily. We love how the awesome Sous Weed Cann-Cooking blog incorporates leafy greens like spinach along with the world’s best green recipes.

Wake + Bake – One of the biggest challenges that new cannabis home cooks face is infusing their delicious dishes with the right dosage. We love how the Wake + Bake blog features an on-site dosage calculator, that links directly back to each one of their step-by-step recipes.

Laurie and Mary Jane – The New Yorker called chef Laurie Wolf for good reason. Not only is she a canna-cooking expert, but she is a master in the realm of homemade infused recipes, like her delectable pumpkin pie, perfect for a Thanksgiving feast where you want to introduce relatives to eating cannabis. holiday season.

Cannabis Cheri – Chef Cheri’s blog is another excellent go-to resource for beloved classic recipes that are cannabis-infused. One of our favorites is her infused pumpkin spiced latte.

Always Remember to Decarb

As is the case with traditional cookbooks, the only way we improve in the kitchen is to keep practicing. While we mentioned this in other chapters, always remember to decarb your cannabis flower before attempting to mix the plant into any recipe.

If you try your hand at canna-cooking, it’s natural for your first or second attempt to need improvement. A good idea is to take notes of what you’ve missed when you first try to cook with cannabis, so you can remember what needs improvement the next time. As long as you learn from these mistakes, you can add cannabis to more dishes, becoming a legitimate cannabis home cook in no time.
