America’s first full-service cannabis kitchen is due to open in Tempe, Arizona in October.
The innovative cannabis kitchen is the product of The Mint Dispensary and those holding a valid medical marijuana card will be able to order a hot meal containing marijuana.
Cannabis Kitchen in Arizona
This new approach to ‘edibles’ in cannabis is the first of its kind. The kitchen offers breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and every meal is infused with cannabis and contains various levels of THC.
This is not just about ‘getting high’ in a new way. The state-of-the-art cannabis kitchen is a $2 million venture of love for its creator, Eivan Shahara, CEO of The Mint Dispensary, who believes in the healing power of good food and the medical potentials of cannabis flower and oil:
“We saw a large unmet need from patients who were regularly visiting our dispensary; they were looking to access fresh and healthy cannabis-infused foods. We know the right kinds of healthy foods can help people to battle a variety of illnesses, from cancer to epilepsy to Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s disease. We’re using our knowledge about food and nutrition to help patients in their search for fresh, healthy snacks and infused meals.”
Marijuana doses will be 10 mg and up per serving.
Cannabis Kitchen: “Where Art Meets Science”
According to head Chef Carylann Principal, this is “a place where art meets science. In addition to understanding the variety of flavors that different cannabis strains can add to any dish, we’re also carefully calculating customized cannabis doses.”
The Mint Dispensary is the operator of one of the largest medical marijuana dispensaries in the United States. With a strong emphasis on battling diseases using marijuana, this cannabis kitchen aims to deliver “delicious and fresh foods” whilst also “meeting the often-complex nutritional needs of patients who are living with a wide range of illnesses.”
