Vegan diets are popular and for all the right reasons. They allow you to live a healthier life and also minimize cruelty towards animals. Cannabis blends amazingly well to vegan dishes and gives them a twist with ‘a high’. Moreover, it adds a huge range of health benefits to food. You can select from a huge variety of cannabis strains that come with different potency levels to adjust the psychoactive effects as per your needs. For all those who want to null out the psychoactive effects, they can choose to cook with a cannabis derivative, CBD oil.
Curious about making some dishes in the comfort of your home? Here are some recipes we recommend.
