Sous Weed® is dedicated to using cannabis as a superfood ingredient as opposed to merely a psychoactive additive. Cannabis is a versatile, nutrient-dense vegetable to be treated as a culinary challenge like any other. Many, if not most, of the recipes on Sous Weed pay homage to the native ingredients and flavors from Monica’s Taiwanese-American heritage while exploring the new cooking techniques and mindsets of the current generation.

Sous Weed is meant to be both teacher and friend. For those unsure about cannabis, it offers educated information about how cannabis works and why. For readers interested in utilizing cannabis for wellness, it’s a source of inspiration with approachable ways to infuse a variety of cannabinoids into a sustainable daily routine.
