Hmmm Hmmm good. Fine cannabis recipes from the basics for newcomers to those who have mastered the art of cannabis cuisine. Being a person somewhere in the middle, it has opened new horizons. Pastries are great, but stretching into the realm of home cooked entrees broadens one's culinary experience.

Of note - I have a chronic disabling physical condition . I am a medical marijuana patient, recognized by my state of residence as a person allowed to posses and consume cannabis products. Those not in a position to legally consume cannabis products read this book at their own risk. The recipes alone will give you the munchies. Just another example of the insanity imposed by some government agencies to keep people from consuming the medically and psychologically sacred herb. A person should not be required to have a physically disabling condition in order to legally eat a brownie.

This is full of great recipes, but no measurements for the Cannabis parts. In the beginning they give you two tables, one for recreational dosing and the other for medicinal dosing, both of which are confusing. So, the recipes are awesome, but I wouldn't recommend this book for inexperienced cookers.

The recipes in this book are quite different than what I was expecting, but are delicious nonetheless. The instructions for making cannabutter/ghee and cannaflour are very useful, though in practice not always as easy as stated. All the recipes are very easily adapted to exclude the cannabis, and are very good on their own. Many recipes call for adding fresh pot to the dish (e.g. tossing ground buds into a salad, or stirring some into guacamole), and the taste can be quite strong. This cookbook isn't for someone just looking for brownie and cookie recipes. Many dishes included are somewhat labour intensive, but are certainly beneficial for medicinal marijuana patients looking to maintain a steady level of THC in their bodies, as the book contains recipes for any time of day. I would suggest trying a recipe out first without the pot, to work out any kinks. The recipes are meant to replace smoking marijuana (as that was the author's goal), so the proportions might seem a bit staggering at first. It's hard to watch 1/4 oz. get turned into hot chocolate, but that's why I suggest trying the recipes out pot-free first. It's easier than wasting good bud on a dish you don't like. All in all, it's a good cookbook, with well-thought-out recipes, and many interesting facts about cannabis and the people who've made history in the world of pot.

The Cannabis Cookbook is not just a well put together cook book, but an entertaining guide detailing the Cannabis plant through history. Their are pictures of every scrumptious meal, drink, or dessert. I am not a chef, by any means, nor do I use recipe books often. This book seemed easy enough to follow for an amateur chef. Every recipe can be modified to be without Cannabis. Even if you do not cook a single thing out of this book, it makes a great coffee table addition and will entertain.

Recipes relatively easy. Very tasty. A good book for the serious cook or as a gag gift for your fav stoner. I can see caregivers using this book for tasty recipes to tempt cancer patients to try to eat.

I have tried each recipe in this book for medical patients. Each one has come out better than expected. This is an essential to any cannabis cookbook collection. Highly recommended.
