Based on the popular Munchies and Viceland television series Bong Appétit, this cannabis cookbook will blow all others out of the water, featuring 65 "high"-end recipes for sweet and savory dishes as well as cocktails.

Along the way, the book hits on marijuana breeding, politics, dosage calculation, and pairing strains and flavors, marshalling the Munchies network of friends and experts including Bong Appetit stars Ry Prichard and Vanessa Lavorato. As the reigning voice in a vast landscape of channels that aim to bridge the high and the low, Munchies sets the standard for marijuana cookbooks in a new political and culinary landscape.
