Editorial Reviews

Review

"Written by a ten-year veteran of the iconic magazine, Elise McDonough, the cookbook is humorous yet educational and compassionate yet still strongly counter-culture, as befitting the magazine's 40-year legacy. For those people who require medibles in their own lives or make them as part of underground compassionate care groups...the book is a highly useful tool." -Houston Press

"Cookies, brownies, and other pastries are desserts that have always been able to be made to a "higher" level. The Official High Times Cannabis Cookbook has finally changed that by having over 50 meals that will make your stomach and mind happy."
--FoodBeast

"Veteran High Times writer McDonough offers this sampler of 50 mind-fogging munchies. There is probably no correlation between the known effects of marijuana and the fact that it has taken this classic counterculture magazine 38 years to get around to publishing a cookbook. Still, when an acknowledgement page credits folks with names like Evan Budman and Easy Bake Dave, one can almost smell the laid-back vibe emanating from this collection of "stoner-style cuisine." The 12-page introduction includes a brief paragraph on what to do should one's meal consumption result in a "total freak-out," but, more importantly, brings home the point that weed's active ingredients are fat-soluble and at their potent peak when in an oily blend. Thus, before launching into the creation of some ganja guacamole, Texas cannabis chili, or Pineapple Express upside-down cake one should whip up one of the spreads presented in the first chapter, such as cannabutter or cannabis-infused mayonnaise. Proper respect is paid to the classic pot brownie, with a page devoted to its history and a recipe involving a double boiler and much stirring. A section on cocktails gilds the lily with offerings like the Jamaican me crazy, which calls for cannabis-infused dark rum. But the book's highlight is its chapter of holiday fare, featuring a THC turkey injected with a "magic marinade" that, in conjunction with tryptophan, could mellow out the harshest of family Thanksgivings."
--Publishers Weekly

"With this book, [High Times] managed to elevate cannabis cuisine above pot brownies and space cakes, to dishes such as potato gnocchi with wild mushroom ragu and financiers."
-- Seattle Weekly

Good cookbook. I am new to cooking with cannabis so this has been a great started guide for me. I am vegan and even though the recipes are non vegan except for one, I will still be able to convert the standard recipes to vegan with no problem.

There are so many great recipes in here. For the weed/culinary lover. In the front of the book there is a easy to understand method to making all your butters, oils, and even glycerine. I "highly" suggest this cookbook. I actually just used this for "danks"-giving the smashed potatoes, glazed turkey, and gramma ganja's Mac n cheese was a hit.

I am glad I bought this, but wish I had bought the Ganga book before this particular book. The Ganja cookbook goes and explains things a little more than this compilation. Realize that this book is based on canna butter and canna oil; everything out from there is about getting good flavors, and good temp.

The Ganja book and what makes it even more special is that it talks about the strains of cannabis, about which ones to use for what kind of medibles. It also goes a little deeper in the temperature issues, because if you cook your weed, you're eating very expensive food, with little medical help.

Very basic recipes. Would be ok for a budding :D chef. All of the basics you need to know are available online. If you are a cookbook collector, its a decent addition to the collection.
