Cannabis Infused Menu
High up in the Rose of the North, Anantara Chiang Mai resort’s The Service 1921 Restaurant and Bar has rolled out a healthy and nutrition-rich cannabis infused menu.
Diners can now feast on signature dishes including – Deep fried sea bass with crispy cannabis leaves and a cannabis tamarind sauce; Spicy grilled prawns with traditional Thai herbs and cannabis; Braised pork spareribs with a shitake mushroom and cannabis soup; Stir-fried beef with cannabis and Grilled river prawns with a spicy lime cannabis sauce.
The Thai Government recently decriminalised most parts of the marijuana plant and although the THC rich flowers, buds and seeds remain off-limits, other parts of the plant such as the leaves have been removed from the prohibited list and have ended up on the fine dining menu due to their dietary benefits.
Cannabis leaves are highly nutritious and contain significant levels of essential vitamins and minerals which compliment healthy dishes and drinks. When the leaves of the cannabis plant are fresh and raw, cannabinoids in the cannabis plant are found in their acid form rather than their active form, meaning guests will not feel dazed from eating or drinking raw cannabis leaves.
The new menu also includes insta-friendly cannabis-based drinks such as the H.I.D. (Hemp in Distiller) with fresh cannabis leaves, monsoon jasmine tea, pandan leaf, dry orange and chamomile tea. The Genmaicha Hazelnut Latte including genmaicha tea, milk, hazelnut syrup, cannabis powder, cannabis leaf and chocolate cookies. Or for something a little more refreshing while catching the breeze off the Ping River from the spacious veranda, the Cannabis Fizzy, which includes soda, apple nectar, pineapple juice, lime juice, cannabis syrup and topped with cannabis leaf.
The award-winning restaurant recently won its second Michelin Plate with the highly esteemed guide praising the restaurants “carefully prepared fresh ingredients and a “good meal”.
