THC Infused dining is increasing in popularity, from dinner parties to wedding receptions.
There are many reasons for eating marijuana instead of smoking it—edibles give you a different sort of high, they say, and certainly delay the drug’s psychoactive effects, and pose no harm to your lungs—but flavor has not traditionally been one of them. The edibles of yore were concocted more for their potency than for their taste. Now, as weed becomes decriminalized and even legal in a handful of states, there’s a burgeoning interest in something new: really good food that will also get you high. In Oregon, there’s Laurie Wolf, the “Martha Stewart of edibles,” renowned for her cannabis recipes; in California, the über-hip chef Vanessa Lavorato sells beautiful chocolate caramels and other bonbons laced with THC, and co-hosts a Viceland show called “Bong Appétit.” (A recent episode featured Joan Nathan, the reigning Jewish-American cookbook queen, making matzo balls with fresh cannabis leaves, minced like any other herb. “It smells like parsley, absolutely,” she said.) Holden Jagger, the co-founder of Altered Plates, a “culinary collective” in Los Angeles, describes himself as a “ganjier”—a sommelier of weed. In cities like Portland and L.A., it’s not hard to find a dinner—whether a one-time special event or as part of a recurring supper-club series—featuring restaurant-quality dishes that just happen to incorporate cannabis.
Excerpt from New Yorker.com original article By Hannah Goldfield
Sweet Jane Sativa Sunday in Colorado Springs has two THC infused events. Quiche, Crepes, and Cannabis elevates Sunday mornings with CBD infused coffee. A Colorado original, Steepfuze begins with the finest quality beans roasted by Unseen Bean’s owner and Master Coffee Roaster, Gerry Leary. Steepfuze uses full-spectrum CBD extract derived from organically grown, pesticide-free industrial hemp. After harvest, the hemp is processed under the most stringent and sterile conditions. The extract is whole-plant and full-spectrum, so consumers get the full benefits of the entire range of cannabinoids and terpenes that hemp has to offer. To avoid any use of potentially harmful solvents, our extract is processed using CO2.
Sip THC Infused Mock-mimosas while sampling sativa strains selected by the Cannabis Sommeliers. The Cannabis Sommeliers will explain the nuances of each strain from the fragrance to the type of experience produced by each. Each sativa strain is selected to enhance your dining experience and uplift your morning.
The Quiche Lorraine and Florentine Quiches and the bacon are not infused. THC Infused vanilla whipped cream is an option on the crepe buffet. Guests create their own crepes from a selection of blueberry compote, strawberries, bananas, Nutella and chocolate syrup.
Sweet Jane Sativa Sunday hosts an afternoon Sativa Soiree with hors’doeuvres and THC infused mock-tinis. The Cannabis Sommeliers offer samplings and insights into the various strains of sativa. Sweet Jane Sativa Soiree is a perfect way to enjoy a Sunday afternoon or to meet up with friends prior to going out to dinner.
