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.

Ok, im not dising the people who wrote this book they are good recipes, just don't pay attention to how much of some ingredients to use. I don't think they proof read this book before publishing it. if they did they may have been adjusted. I cook a lot and know off the top of my head you don't use the amounts of baking soda and powder for a basic muffin or pancakes mix as printed, tbls instead of tsp makes a big difference in baking. but nice effort, I think more in-depth explanations on how to make the basic ingredients you need to have, before attempting your culinary creations, would be more beneficial then the messed up recipes in this book.

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.

Pretty thorough cannacookbook. I really enjoyed reading and using this one!

Pros:
-brief and interesting cannabis cooking history
-recommended dosages for medicinal or recreational use
-some of the science behind how it all works, when cooking
-good approachable instructions for making your own butters and tinctures
-creative recipes, using a variety of ingredients
-clear attractive photos of each recipe
-apps, main dishes, desserts and drinks
-entertaining descriptions of the recipes and cheesy/cutesy names
-most recipes call for common items, and are relatively easy to adjust if needed (for example, gluten free)
-surprisingly delicious recipes (the Really Wild Mushroom Sauté is now my go-to recipe for using my cannabutter!)

Cons
-prior experience cooking with cannabis is probably needed
-one really needs to know their way around a kitchen to create some of these recipes. If you haven't done much cooking or baking in general, then this probably isn't the book for you.
-the index seems a bit lacking. I'd love to see recipes listed by multiple ingredients, not just one main ingredient and then the recipe title.

Bought this book for a family member. They decided that they would rather find their recipes online. So the book was given to me period I absolutely love it. I have made many recipes from this book. And have not been disappointed yet.
