30 delectable ways with weed
By Dr Hash (AKA Jimmy Lee Shreeve)
Cico Books, 2010
Let’s face it, you can’t get away from the fact that smoking – anything – isn’t good for you. The good news is, you don’t have to give up the joys of dope. You simply have to learn to cook.
If you’re a dab hand with savories, pastries, cakes or desserts, you’ll be laughing.
But even if you’re not, many of the recipes in this book are no more difficult than making a cup of coffee. In no time, you’ll be the ‘Nigella Lawson’ of counter culture – the difference being, unlike Nigella’s, your dishes will give you and your dinner guests one hell of a buzz! And you can guarantee they’ll be coming back for more…
Written by Dr Hash – the streetwise ‘medicine man’ – this book reveals the secrets of his aunt, Mary Jane. After trying her ‘cakes of light’, she initiated him into the art of cannabis cuisine.
First, learn to turn the cannabis into a butter – and then you can use it in almost anything! From delicious main meals, such as spaghetti bolognese, to stratospheric snacks like classic brownies, fudge and biscuits, you’ll soon be able to cook up a storm.

Let’s get stoned! Whether you go for an after-work treat to take the edge off the day or want your party to pack a punch, these tasty little recipes will help get you there, the natural way.
We begin with the story of Mary Jane Belmont and her protégé, Dr Hash, then get right to The Basics – knowing your weed. Check out what you have and how to treat it right for maximum effect, then move onto Cool Beginnings… and cannabis canapés.
Sweet and Small Treats gives you the recipe for Mary Jane’s very famous hash brownies and fudge, or try out her cupcakes (but don’t donate any to the bake sale).
If you’re really hungry, Big Stuff, like pizza and tacos, will do the trick. The Refreshments chapter offers drinks like hash coffee and cocktails to kick-start the evening or bring you gently down. Depending how much hash you put in, of course.
