Cooking with CannabisApril 5, 2021
How does cannabis affect the flavor of a dish?
Like wine grapes, cannabis comes in countless strains with various flavors including, for example, citrus, berry, mint and pine. These flavours are created by aromatic oils called terpenes, which are secreted in the same glands that produce cannabis compounds including Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and Cannabidiol (CBD). Terpenes form part of the flavour profile of a cannabis-infused dish so it’s important to select ones that complement the other ingredients.
