Cooking with Cannabis: Infused Dinner Parties at The Farmhouse Cannabis Dispensary in Burlington Ontario

Are you a foodie trying to find something unique and out of the ordinary? Or maybe a cannabis enthusiast looking to bring something new to the table? Then we have just the thing for you – culinary cannabis experiences!

That’s right – cooking with cannabis is a combination of two of the most beloved indulgences of all time. Gone are the days when cannabis was synonymous with stale Doritos and take-out pizza. Now, cannabis enthusiasts can enjoy the wonders of the plant with a whole new level of sophistication.

Combining the perfect food with the perfect stain of weed is the key to creating culinary cannabis experiences. You can do this in a variety of ways, from adding cannabis-infused oils or tinctures to complementing different flavor profiles.

A range of different flavours and aromas can be found in cannabis terpenes, which are aromatic compounds found in the cannabis plant. You can enhance your cannabis experience by pairing food and drinks with cannabis terpenes.

Pairing Cannabis and Food: What to Consider

1. The Aroma

Even before we taste a dish, the aroma is often the first thing we notice. That’s why pairing weed with food should take into account its aroma. As the terpenes in cannabis interact with the aroma of food, a unique flavour combination is created. 

Terpenes can have earthy, floral, or citrus notes, while others can be sweet, spicy, or skunky. Food’s taste is influenced or enhanced by terpenes, which interact with each other.

The sweet, earthy taste of myrcene makes it perfect for both sweet and savory dishes. Limonene creates a citrusy kick that is great for drinks and desserts. Alpha-Pinene creates a woodsy essence that pairs well with grilled meats. Finally, linalool produces a subtle, floral note ideal for tea and coffee.

2. The Taste

Terpenes, which are naturally occurring flavinoid compounds, give marijuana its distinctive flavor. There is a wide variety of terpene profiles in recreational marijuana, which can influence the taste of the food you pair it with. An earthy, musky flavor is often described for strains containing the terpene myrcene.

In addition to mushroom, dark chocolate, and even red wine, these strains pair well with rich, earthy palettes. In contrast, strains containing terpene limonene are often described as having a citrusy, sweet taste. White wine, citrus fruits, and honey are just some of the lighter, sugary notes enhanced by these.

3. The Potency

It is best to consider the potency of the cannabis when infusing food and drinks with it. As low as 8-10% THC can be found in some strains of cannabis, while as high as 30% is present in others. To avoid feeling overwhelmed, you should know how strong the strain, or the concentrate is before you consume too much.

Last but not least, consider what type of food to pair with your strain. You can enhance a strain’s effects with some foods, and diminish them with others. Foods that are rich in fat can slow down THC absorption, while foods that are rich in acid can boost it. Consuming food can affect the strain’s effects, so keep that in mind and adjust accordingly.

In case you do have too much THC, CBD-infused treats are a good idea to keep around. It’s known that CBD counteracts the high from too much THC.
