Cannabis Chef Definition
What is a Cannabis Chef?
Cannabis chefs, also known as marijuana edibles chefs, marijuana cooks, or weed chef, infused different types of food and drinks with THC, the main chemical compound found in cannabis. Cannabis chefs find creative ways to use THC-infused oils and butter, along with other concentrates, to create consumable food and drink for recreational and medical use.
According to AZCentral, “When Arizona legalized medical marijuana in 2010, it opened up a way to introduce his cannabis cooking to a wider circle.”
PhoenixNewTimes says, “Guests at cannabis dinners are given medicated tinctures they can add to their dishes at the events, which are hosted by the chefs, who talk about the different strains in the infusions, the dosages, and different ways to use them for wellness.”
Cannabis kitchens are starting to pop up in Arizona according to ABC15. The only disadvantages of a cannabis kitchen is that its not mobile. Chef Derek Upton and the Elevationsss catering team are the only mobile ready cannabis kitchen in the state of Arizona offering private dining at our location(s) in Phoenix or your home, event space, or anywhere else.
