The marijuana industry in the state of Maryland is on course to becoming a billion-dollar business after the recreational use of the drug was legalized a few months ago. Many are taking advantage of this new market, with some offering private dinner parties that feature foods infused with marijuana.
One entrepreneur, Chef Jazmine Moore, has been offering such course meals at her restaurant. Moore believes more individuals are looking for alternative ways to relax and enjoy themselves, and her food affords them an approachable way to use marijuana.
Her approach is backed by numbers from a recent poll, which show that almost 40% of individuals in America felt two alcoholic drinks was unhealthy, which may have some substituting drinks for marijuana.
The chef normally consults with her guests prior to every event, which enables her to ensure that everyone participating is aged 21 years and older; she also ensures that every individual signs a waiver. Moore revealed that she had used marijuana herself to help her overcome Crohn’s Disease symptoms, which had caused digestive issues that actually prevented her from eating.
Moore’s business, the Green Panther Chef, allows her to forge her path in a new field while also taking away the stigma that still surrounds the use of cannabis. During her dinner parties, which last roughly three hours, guests often begin the night with a CBD-infused mocktail or cocktail.
One dinner guest, Shirdell Kenney, revealed that marijuana helped people unwind and afforded the space for guests to fully immerse themselves in the experience. Ayanna Lawson, another dinner guest, noted that consuming marijuana-infused meals didn’t make one a stoner. Lawson herself owns and manages Front Row Travels, a travel firm that centers on marijuana-friendly getaways and experiences.
A few other guests were interviewed, with one declaring that food did taste better with marijuana while another discussed how marijuana helped her as a survivor of thyroid cancer.
Moore revealed that she enjoyed teaching others how to cook with marijuana and had already published her own cookbook focused on that topic. She hopes that in the future, cannabis will be allowed to expand restaurant menus in the state. When asked about marijuana’s effect after one has consumed infused foods, she equates the feeling to that of having a few glasses of wine.
Kenney herself noted that the feeling was a mellow and better high, especially when compared to smoking a joint.
Such dinners featuring marijuana-infused foods and drinks could go a long way in helping many individuals become comfortable consuming marijuana products from entities similar to Cronos Group Inc. (NASDAQ: CRON) (TSX: CRON) that make products for the recreational and medical markets within different jurisdictions.
