Cannabis Cooking for Chefs:
How to Become a Cannabis Chef
As a chef or culinary professional, you already know how to cook. Isn't it time you learned how to cook with cannabis?
Chefs around the country are getting in on the hottest culinary trend and creating cannabis infused drinks and dishes. Some are becoming infused dinner party chefs. Some work with patients on health and wellness. Some are starting their own edibles companies.
This is a culinary trend that's here to stay. And with more and more states legalizing cannabis, demand is only going to grow.
So how do you become a cannabis chef? Like with any other skill, with training.
Cannabis cooking is not so different from cooking, once you learn the basic rules and principles needed to make effective and delicious edibles.
Up until now finding that training was difficult. Why?
There is a lot of conflicting, misleading, and downright inaccurate information about cooking with marijuana floating around on the internet and in the press. And bad information can cost you big time!
As a culinary professional, you always have to eye the bottom line and the the fact is:
- Bad information can cost you money in wasted weed and other ingredients.
- Bad information can cost you in wasted time spent making ineffective edibles.
- Bad information can undermine your confidence that it is even possible to get consistent, predictable results with edible cannabis. (Spoiler alert – it is!)
- Bad information can cause you to give up before even taking off.
If you ever hope to master cannabis cooking it is absolutely essential that you get in the kitchen and try your hand at making edibles BUT (and this but is so big you might as well name it Kim Kardashian), you would do yourself a HUGE favor by learning some of the basic principles of cannabis cooking first.
Doing so WILL save you both time and money as well as build your confidence.

About The Instructor,
Cheri Sicard was a published, professional writer and food editor when she first got interested in cannabis. At the same time she had just sold her award winning food and travel websites to SheKnows media and found herself between businesses. That fortuitous timing allowed her the luxury of immersing herself in the topic of marijuana and edibles.
Besides creating this course, Cheri is the author of 2 best-selling cannabis cookbooks. The Daily Beast dubbed her the "Martha Stewart of Weed."
Here’s what people are saying about the course instructor
Cheri makes things easy to understand and accessible for pros, or those just starting out.
Cheri is like your favorite Aunt that tells you what’s up.
Her experience and delivery of information keep it fun.
Cheri is obviously very knowledgeable and paces these classes well.
She doesn't assume you know everything, but she also doesn't assume you are a dummy, so things are just right!

Don’t wait! Look at what past students have to say about this course
Every step I’ve gone through I’ve learned more and more.
Cheri Sicard is fantastic, I love her candor.
Cheri is a good and careful teacher that absolutely gave me more confidence and guidance that I needed.
I recently took 2 of the courses Cheri offers, Easy Cannabis Cooking for Home Cooks and her new Ultimate Guide to Gummies course. I consider myself a rather advanced intermediate and still found plenty to learn in both classes. Both courses had great content and the time and effort she put into the gummy class alone is just amazing. Also, I think the price of her classes is very much worth the content she covers.
My experience was outdated, the science of weed has changed almost everything I thought I knew about cooking with cannabis.
I would recommend this course to any person, medically or recreationally, using edibles, because they can decrease the cost of edibles from their monthly budget, and confidently use the flower/shake for cooking, sprinkling, infusing their own high quality edibles, knowing exactly every ingredient that goes in.
I am in the 4th Lesson stage right now, and already I am empowered to produce the medicine I need without the worry of screwing up the weed. This has changed my life!
Frequently Asked Questions
What happens after I enroll in the course?
You will get an email with an access link. Click that link and you can immediately start the lessons and access all the videos, the the tested recipes, and the course resources and handouts.
Do I need any special equipment to cook with cannabis?
Not at all. If you have an ordinary kitchen with ordinary kitchen equipment, you already have everything you need. A slow cooker is nice, but not essential. I am not a big believer in special equipment or unnecessary gadgets. Of course, it is assumed you have access to cannabis.
What if I have questions?
That first email you get is not a form letter! It is actually from me. Likewise, you will have my email address. If you have a question, just use that email to ask and I will do my best to answer. Go ahead. Try it out. Ask me anything (well OK, most anything and definitely anything about cannabis cooking). Sad as it may seem, this seems to be a BIG difference between me and some of the other cannabis trainings available. My students always seem shocked when they not only actually get an answer directly from me (unless I happen to be traveling in which case it's from my associate), they almost always get it in a day or less (if I happen to be at my computer when the question comes in, almost instantly).
Are there individual recipe demonstrations in the course?
I demonstrate how to cook with cannabis, so there are demonstrations of how to make marijuana butter and oil infusions using a number of different methods and techniques, and demonstrations of making kief. Once you have infusions and the basic principles of how to cook with marijuana down, such as proper temperatures, decarboxylation, and proper dosing, the rest is just cooking. So I do not demonstrate individual recipes as it is assumed you already know how to cook. However nearly 200 tasty tested medicated recipes are included with this course.
What if I am unhappy with the course?
I would NEVER want you to be unhappy! Likewise, the course comes with a full 30-day money-back guarantee. If you don’t like the course, if you don’t like edible marijuana, if you don’t like me (I so DO hope you like me, but even if you don’t), you can ask for your money back. That’s right you have nothing to lose and everything to gain.
What if I can’t afford the course?
If you like cannabis edibles, you can't afford not to take the course as it quickly pays for itself. Not only will you save a bundle over commercially produced edibles, you will get the foods you like in the doses you need.
What if I don’t have the time right now to complete the course or even start the course?
It doesn’t matter. Once enrolled, you get LIFETIME access to the course, including any future upgrades (and fair warning when we do big upgrades on courses, the price usually goes up, but once enrolled you don’t ever have to worry about that). You can access the course anytime it is convenient for you. Watch the lessons as many times you like, as often as you like. And since the course is broken down into short little lessons that are super easy to learn, even people with EXTREMELY busy schedules can work their way through it. You could even watch a lesson a day on your coffee break, should you choose.
Can I use more health-oriented ingredients than your recipes call for?
You can use any ingredients you like. The course is NOT about individual recipes. Instead, it teaches you how to cook with cannabis so that you have the power to successfully and therapeutically add cannabis to the foods/recipes that you like to eat. That is one of the big benefits of making your own, the edibles you create can be anything you want or need them to be. Once you understand the principles of how to successfully cook with cannabis, the options are pretty much limitless.

My Closing Thoughts
I hope you will join our like-minded community of cannabis cooks because I know how profoundly edible cannabis changed my life.
I created this course because I wish I had something like when I first started learning about cannabis. It would have saved me A TON of time, money, and frustration. But I am proud of the fact that it is doing just that for so many others now.
I am also proud that it is helping chefs help themselves while helping others.
As a culinary professional you already know that food and cooking have always been a nurturing expression of love. But when that food can profoundly change someone’s life, when it can take away their pain, or help them sleep at night, or keep food down, or ease their anxiety…well, it just doesn’t get any better than that.
Cannabis chefs have that magical power!
