Those of us who remember buying and enjoying cannabis decades ago might find this new world of marijuana quite fascinating. First, it’s now legal in many states, including Maine and Massachusetts, so we need not worry about winding up in the slammer if we follow the rules.
And now, instead of inhaling smoke from burning the dried “flower” in a joint, pipe or bong, we can enjoy cannabis in a tincture dropped on the tongue, topical lotions and in edibles like cute little gummy candies. Or, in a BBQ sauce slathered on a rack of ribs.
Now, enterprising and talented chefs like Kittery’s Zack Squier are applying their cooking skills and innovation to creating food and drink containing cannabis. His Squier’s Specialty Edibles which includes savory sauces, elixirs and cooking products start with farm-fresh ingredients.
