When it comes to cooking, you might be familiar with the special ingredients that can elevate our meals from good to great. Instead of reaching for the salt and pepper, for example, you may opt for the six-spice blend you’ve perfected to season your food.
Aaron Miller, General Manager at Flight Cannabis Co., has a special ingredient that’s a little different: cannabis!
“I think the world of cannabis can be really overwhelming for a lot of people. Pairing it with something you’re already familiar and comfortable with, such as food, can make for a far less intimidating experience,” Miller says.
Drawing on 20 years of culinary experience, Miller shares a variety of recipes on the Flight Cannabis Co. blog for those wanting to try their hand at cooking with cannabis. The company also has a new location set to open in Nanaimo, offering further information and inspiration.
“Because of my background, I’m really familiar with the kitchen and love the idea of infusing cannabis with culinary techniques. When we talk about cannabis, the experience doesn’t always have to be about getting high — you can use a CBD oil or tinctures instead of THC, which might make you feel relaxed and less anxious but won’t give you the feeling of being ‘high,’” Miller says.
Whether it’s adding cannabis oil to a vinaigrette, using a dissolvable powder to create a mock-tail or incorporating cannabis-infused butter into your favourite baked goods, there are plenty of ways to infuse elements of cannabis into your food.
Because a little goes a long way, you don’t have to worry about masking the cannabis flavour or smell in your meals — when it comes to cooking with cannabis, less is more.
Flight Cannabis Co. boasts a full inventory of cannabis offerings including flowers, capsules, oils, tinctures, concentrates and even drinks, so the opportunities to bring cannabis into your kitchen are almost endless.
