Smoke It. Eat It. Drink It. RISE Cookbook

According to a study conducted by New Frontier in 2021, 36% of cannabis consumers surveyed enjoyed cooking with cannabis in their homes. The most common ways to infuse cannabis with food were through use of cannabutter, cannabis oil and tinctures. Baked goods are the most popular type of dish to infuse with cannabis, but entrees and beverages are also fashionable choices. Pop culture has also seen a surge in the number of television and streaming shows where cooking with cannabis is the main focus. Cooked with Cannabis , a cooking competition show airing on Netflix, ranks in the 78th percentile in the Reality genre and scores 1.4 times the viewers of the average TV show in the United States. With data from Pew Research Center showing that 88% of Americans support some form of cannabis legalization , the popularity of cooking with cannabis is likely to continue rising.

Ryan Marek, SVP of Marketing at Green Thumb Industries added, "We're extremely proud of ‘Smoke It. Eat. Drink It.' and the book's potential to continue normalizing the 4/20 holiday and cannabis culture as a whole."

What Would US Cannabis Rescheduling Mean for Stocks and Investors?

The US Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) has initiated proceedings to reclassify cannabis from a Schedule I substance to a Schedule III substance, marking a significant step towards cannabis reform in the country.

After months of deliberation, the Associated Press reported on April 30 that the DEA would move to reclassify cannabis from Schedule I, a category it currently shares with heroin and methamphetamines, to Schedule III, which is reserved for substances with low potential for dependence and accepted medical use.

The move from the DEA comes almost a year after the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) suggested that cannabis be reclassified on August 29, 2023. In December 2023, the DEA sent a letter to Congress in which it indicated its intent to review the evidence provided by the HHS. This was followed by months of evaluation and consideration by the DEA, as well as discussions and advocacy for cannabis reform by lawmakers and other stakeholders.
