A group of Calgarians took part in a special cooking class Saturday to learn to cook with marijuana.
First up, Crystal Gooding explained her recipe for CannaCoconut Oil, which is coconut oil infused with marijuana.
"You're going to dump your cannabis in there, your ounce... and you're going to bring it to a good simmer," she told the group of about 15 people who turned up at the 420 Clinic in Inglewood for the cooking class.
Gooding also shared recipes for cannabis olive oil, cannabis flour and cannabis butter.
"My favourite is melting [the cannabis butter] and putting it on popcorn," she said.
"But you can put it in a pan on a low heat and you can fry your fish in there [or] sprinkle it in on your vegetables when they're done cooking."
Medical marijuana patients like Michael Wiesenberg say they're looking for new ways to ingest cannabis.
"I think that edibles will be a nice way to go, a convenient way of taking it," said Wiesenberg, who uses pot to relieve his Parkinson's symptoms.
"The effects are supposed to work very well that way. I'd certainly like to give it a try," he added.
Marijuana cooking classes like this one are held once a month.
