Cannabis-infused Thanksgiving feast? Yes, that’s possible now, too

What happens when the creator of the first cannabis-based ETF joins forces with a celebrity cannabis chef for the holidays? You get some really funky holiday recipes.

At least, that’s how it looks on the video.

ETFMG, the Summit-based exchange-traded fund provider, teamed up with “JeffThe420Chef” to create a cannabis-infused Thanksgiving with recipes using cannabis and CBD ingredients, including a muddled-berry mocktail with CBD. (Watch the how-to video here.)

Sam Masucci, founder and CEO of ETFMG, said the effort follows the company profile — and demonstrates what he has been saying all along: Cannabis has a number of purposes.

“ETFMG has built a reputation of creating products that offer investors access to important themes and markets,” he said. “The growth of investor interest in investing in cannabis has been unprecedented.

“In addition to launching the first and largest cannabis ETF, ETFMG is a leading provider of cannabis education. Cooking with cannabis is an example of the vast applications and demonstrates the broad acceptance of the plant.”

JeffThe420Chef was happy to play his part.

“Cooking with cannabis and hemp on Thanksgiving has always been my way of elevating the holiday,” he said. “It helps everyone focus on family time. It was great to finally get out there and showcase this kind of cooking for a broader market.”

He agreed it demonstrates the many uses of cannabis.

“Although a lot of investors know about cannabis and hemp, most are not familiar with the benefits of cooking with the plants — but a lot of them are curious,” he said. “It was fun being able to share this, especially during these stressful times.”
