Missouri Medical Marijuana Patients Can Stream These Cannabis Cooking Shows!
As more and more Missourians get their medical marijuana card, television is beginning to cater to the cannabis consuming public. As the stigma of marijuana use begins to fade, so does the false stereotype of the cannabis user as a lazy, stoner cliche.
Cheech & Chong and Jay & Silent Bob will probably always have their place among the pantheon of classic cannabis comedies. But, as the profile of the average marijuana consumer continues to evolve, so does the content of media geared towards that demographic. From gourmet cannabis-infused edibles to comic books with marijuana-inspired superheroes - the way culture looks at marijuana is beginning to change.
Streaming services have created a golden age for content creation. In addition to services like Netflix and Hulu, it seems every major network and cable outlet is launching a streaming service. Each of these platforms needs content, and on some of these services, cannabis users are being catered to with marijuana-centric offerings.
Cannabis and cooking are nothing new. I mean, who among us hasn’t had a case of the marijuana-induced munchies?! But, as marijuana gains more mainstream acceptance, legitimate chefs are realizing they can make cannabis-infused creations and bring them to the masses.
Whether you are a cannabis user who is looking to learn how to up their culinary game, or are just someone who likes to enjoy your medicine and get lost in a some good television, you may want to check out these streaming shows that feature cooking with cannabis:
Cooked With Cannabis
Cooked With Cannabis is a culinary competition show that gives new meaning to the term “Netflix and chill.” Contestants compete to make the best cannabis-themed cuisine. The show is hosted by cannabis expert and chef Leather Storrs and Kelis, the singer whose milkshake brought all the boys to the yard.
In each episode, three chefs put their skills to the test, creating cannabis-infused dishes to form a three-course meal. The guest celebrity judges then award their favorite chef a $10,000 cash prize. All episodes are available on Netflix.
Currently streaming on Hulu, Bong Appétit challenges chefs to come together to create marijuana-infused dishes for a themed dinner party. The show was created by Vice, and is hosted by Abdullah Saeed.
In many ways, this show allows the audience to be a fly on the wall as world class chefs create these cannabis-infused dishes, then discuss them at the ensuing dinner. It offers a relaxed vibe that’s less competitive than the aforementioned Cooking with Cannabis. There are 30 episodes available to stream, all lasting about a half hour.
Chopped 420 is a spinoff of Discovery Plus’s classic Chopped, and is hosted by loveable comedian Ron Funches. In addition to the challenge of cooking with cannabis, the show features some discussions on marijuana’s medicinal benefits. You can also expect to see some comedic segments where the judges riff on how the cannabis is affecting them.
While Chopped 420 is a legitimate cannabis cooking show, things do get a little loose and silly. Sometimes, you’ll encounter profanity and the occasional sexual reference, so it’s a little more low-brow than some of the other culinary marijuana programs. All episodes are available on Discovery Plus, and you can stream the first season on Amazon Prime.
Cooking on High
We wanted to make you aware of Cooking on High so that you can be on the lookout for this Netflix original in case it becomes available again. It was one of the first widely available streaming programs to feature cooking with marijuana. The show featured short, fifteen minute episodes that were easily digestible (pun intended).
The show, which was hosted by YouTube Star Josh Leyva, featured legitimate chefs competing to create the best cannabis-infused edible treats, with low-level celebrity judges who are confirmed cannabis connoisseurs.
Unfortunately, the show was pulled from Netflix last summer, and doesn’t seem to be available anywhere. There is speculation that the show was pulled because Netflix began airing Cooked With Cannabis, which is a similar show that they believe is better. This belief is bolstered by a slate of rough reviews for Cooking on High, which include the Washington Post calling it the “worst food show on Netflix.” Sounds like one critic who could stand to mellow out.
The Cannabis Cooking Channel
If you’re just looking for someone to teach you how to cook some amazing cannabis-infused dishes, there is good news. You don’t even need a premium subscription service. The 420 Gourmet has created The Cannabis Cooking Channel on Youtube, featuring an amazing array of mouth-watering, marijuana-infused dishes from entrees to desserts and even cocktails.
