If you've ever tried a pot cookie and thought, "I could do better," we've got just the book for you. The Cannabis Kitchen Cookbook
(officially out tomorrow
) aims to bring weed-infused foods up to the level of your culinary talents.
But even for seasoned cannabis consumers in weed-legal states, edibles can be intimidating. Which is why the book so helpfully starts with a crash course in different strains and dosing. Then, it moves into techniques for infusing pot into everything from butter and coconut oil to milk and honey. (If you don't already know how to do a basic infusion, check out our beginner's instructions

The rest of the book's recipes are all built on these infused staples. But don't get us wrong — these aren't freshman-year-dorm-kitchen weed brownies. These are real deal
gourmet treats with an extra "feel-good" kick. And going beyond the classics, there are recipes you can use for every meal of the day (but we wouldn't necessarily recommend that).
