A cannabis cookbook is a cookbook for preparing cannabis edibles, often in the form of a baking guide. According to The New York Times, baking recipes are popular because " [THC] dosing is easier to control in batter-based dishes or chocolate".[1] Such cookbooks existed prior to United States legalization; The Alice B. Toklas Cook Book published in 1954, for instance, or The Marijuana Chef Cookbook published in 2001 under the pseudonym S.T. Oner,[2][3] but became more commonplace after California and other states legalized in the 2010s.[4][5] Notable chefs like Laurie Wolf and Jasmine Shimoda have created or contributed to cannabis cookbooks.[6][7][4]
