When someone thinks of consuming cannabis, what usually comes to mind is smoking a joint. Of course, after decades of stigma and depiction in the media, people who want to try cannabis only know smoking as a way to harness the benefits. However, little do people know that it can also be paired with food.
Literally, cannabis can be an ingredient of a meal or a condiment. Cannabis products produced nowadays can be versatile as they provide a distinct aroma and flavor. To maximize your options in pairing cannabis, here are a few of the usually available flavors and their ideal situations:
