Cannabis Cooking for Chefs:
How to Become a Cannabis Chef 

cannabis cooking for chefs

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 and making more money then ever before.

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.  If you're looking to make more money as a cannabis chef, this course is for you.

“Honestly can’t think of anything I’d change. Amazing course. Amazing instructor.”


I would recommend the cannabis cooking course to anyone and everyone looking to start their own business or just looking to make some great potent homemade edibles.

Creative and innovative chefs around the country are making bank with infused meals, catering, and helping patients get the edibles they need.

About The Instructor,
Cheri Sicard

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.

I love all the options that are available when you know what you are doing!

I had experimented once before making Canna Oil and Canna Butter which turned out ok but then I found you and your site and class on dosing which of course led me to your cooking class. Using edibles has been something I have wanted to explore for some time, so I tried your recipes this time for the oil and butter and also made a batch of chocolate chip bars and I also made the sweet and spicy nuts...also very good!

Angel C Medical Marijuana Patient

I am not new to cannabis cooking nor topicals; but have learned SO much already! 

I had to write and thank you for your courses. It has also been extremely comforting to have many of my own notions and research validated. It can feel so isolating to search and filter through all the conflicting (and lack of) information and I feel so much more confident and prepared to forge ahead with the tools and information from your courses!

Catherine Durso Medical Marijuana Patient

Every step I’ve gone through I’ve learned more and more. 

Cheri Sicard is fantastic, I love her candor.

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!
