Cannabis-infused foods—aka edibles—may not be legal to sell in Canada just yet, but they’re still a popular way to consume the plant. Made properly, edibles can provide a delicious and convenient-to-consume entry into both the psychoactive effects of THC or the relaxing effects of CBD. They don’t require rolling papers or pipes or vaporizers, just basic kitchen gear and some ingredients, including cannabis. That and, of course, a good cannabis cookbook.

Luckily, there are plenty of those on offer in today’s pro-cannabis market. Cannabis chefs of all types have been documenting their favourite recipes, packaging them for the at-home DIYers in tomes that round-up vegan picks, Italian classics and plenty of tempting sweet treats.

Take a look at the following list of the best edibles cookbooks (prices noted are as of time of writing) and get inspired to bring cannabis into the kitchen.
