The marijuana industry has rapidly expanded in recent years, with the state of Colorado being a central hub of the cannabis industry. The state-wide legalization of pot opened previously impossible collaborations with a wide range of existing industries, from medicine to artisanal cooking. Chefs and gourmands were introduced to cannabis-infused cooking, leading to a refinement of edible weed previously unseen. Chef's like Andrea Drummer and Joline Rivera are bringing cooking with marjuana to elevated levels of sophistication and public acceptance. It's now possible to go into a dispensary and buy delicacies spanning chocolates, candies, pastries and even some savory edibles. The edible industry has grown so much that there is now dissolvable THC and CBD available to buy, just stir it into a favorite dish and voila, an edible masterpiece is ready to eat.
Sweets and baked goods have been the traditional avenue for edible creation due to the high fat content and relative simplicity of their recipes. Marijuana is fat soluble and cannabinoids will bond with fat particles allowing for absorption by the human body. Cannabinoid extraction has progressed so that fat is no longer the only way to extract cannabinoids. Weed has a powerful flavor that doesn't always mix well with sweets but sugar bonding and other methods make it impossible to taste even a hint of weed in a lot of these edibles. Now that flavor is no longer an impediment, gourmet edibles have experienced a renaissance and encompass a huge variety of sweets and savories to satisfy any palate.
