But now Los Angeles-based chef Chris Sayegh is bringing THC-infused meals to the world of fine dining.
Chris said: “To me, this is a cerebral experience. Whether you are choosing to intoxicate yourself with wine and have a different perception which is what alcohol does. And then cannabis is doing the same thing, you’re eating with a different perception with each bite, with each course, you’re literally changing your brain chemistry and you are viewing this food differently than you did five minutes ago, ten minutes ago.”
Indeed, California is preparing for a potential legalisation of recreational cannabis in November, when they are likely to vote on relaxing recreational cannabis laws.
Chris Sayegh stages pop up banquets around Los Angeles and the surrounding areas.
