From the editors of the Vice TV series (and published by Ten Speed Press), this tome features 65 recipes ranging from appetizers and salads, to pasta, entrees, cocktails and desserts. The first third of the book explains the basics of cooking with weed, like how to control dosing, understanding terpenes and the decarboxylation process, and features recipes for several different types of cannabis infusions including oil, butter, coconut milk, whipped cream and honey.

Recipes are varied enough for beginners to seasoned home cooks and each one outlines the amount of THC per serving and for the total recipe. And theyre accompanied by Martha Stewart-worthy photos. In case you overdo it, theres a handy section titled What to do if you eat too much THC.
