Looking for great gifts for the cannabis cooks in your life? As an avid cannabis cook myself, I've got some suggestions.
Of course, if you know anyone serious about learning to cook with cannabis, consider enrolling them in my Easy Cannabis Cooking for Home Cooks online course. Yes that's a shameless plug, but it is a quality product and the person you enroll might end up making YOU some edibles in the end. Win/win.
Besides sending your loved one to online cannabis cooking school, here are my other 2018 picks for cannabis foodie gifts at all ends of the price spectrum.
Cheri's Holiday Gift Picks for Cannabis Cooks (in no particular order)
Cooks can NEVER have too many aprons. The Fresh Baked apron I am wearing in the photo above, by Smokies Toke Couture, is one of my favorites. It's a nice large heavy-weight apron that is understated in its weed appreciation!

About the size of a portable coffee grinder, the Ardent Nova Decarboxylator takes away all the guesswork of decarboxylating cannabis, plus you can make small batches of marijuana butter, oil or other infusions right in the same small device. Ardent's newest product, the FX is the bigger brother to the Nova with larger capacity and greater functionality.
Place plant material or hash, kief, or hash oils (in a silicon container for the latter) in, place the inner and outer lids on, press a button, and in a little under 2 hours your cannabis will be perfectly, 100% decarboxylized. The product could not be easier or more convenient to use. Besides decarbing, you can even infuse small amounts of oil or butter directly in the Nove and larger amounts in the FX.
After using these gadgets I noticed a remarkable increase in my edibles potency compared to decarbing in the oven. So did many of my readers who bought one.
Be sure to use the coupon code CANNACHERI for $30.00 off the purchase price. For anyone who regularly cooks with cannabis, I cannot recommend these highly enough. In fact they are the ONLY special cannabis cooking gadgets I use in my own kitchen.
There will be no doubt about whether or not the food contains cannbis when it comes out of the oven with this playful but functional oven mitt on.
Whether measuring cannabis or other baking or culinary ingredients, this small stylish scale does the job. The easy to use scale has a capacity of 11 lbs (5,000 g) and provides weight readings in 0.05 oz (1 g) increments in ounces, pounds and ounces, or grams.
The one thing no cannabis cook EVER has enough of is cannabis! Head on over to your local dispensary if you live in a legal state, and pick up your loved one some great cannabis cooking material.
If you do not live in a legal state, or for whatever reason your loved one prefers to cook with CBD-only, I recommend one of the organic, full spectrum, phytocannabinoid-rich CBD tinctures by Joy Organics as a quality THC-free alternative.

Here is an inexpensive little stocking stuffer that cannabis cooks will likely use a lot. Besides cookies use them to cut out shapes from pie dough and other doughs, cut tea sandwiches, use as marijuana-shaped ring molds, help decorate cakes (fill in the outline), and even to make cannabis shaped fried eggs!
