Often known as cannabis chefs, these are the individuals responsible for cooking and making edibles with marijuana. They infuse food and drinks with THC which is the chemical compound that is found in marijuana. Cannabis chefs must find creative ways to use butters and oils that have been infused with THC to create food, drinks and other edibles. They also use cannabis concentrates to make medical and recreational edibles.

Cannabis chefs not only have to follow state to state regulations on edibles, but they must also follow standard food safety requirements. They are required to label the edibles with the correct ingredient and potency information. Some states have restrictions on the types of edibles that can be produced and sold, so they must be up to date on their state’s requirements.
