In an attempt to appeal to foreign tourists, cannabis-infused meals are being served up at a Thailand restaurant after the country recently legalized cannabis for authorized companies to cultivate the plant. Further, cannabis was de-listed from the country’s narcotics list, enabling its mostly worry-free consumption throughout Thailand.
“Cannabis leaves, when put in the food or even a small amount … it will help the patient to recover faster from the illness,” said Pakakrong Kwankao, the project leader at the hospital where the restaurant is located, and also has a reputation for researching the benefits of cannabis.
“The cannabis leaf can improve appetite and make people sleep well, and also be in a mood, in a good mood,” he continued.
Thailand was the first Southeast Asian country to legalize cannabis for medicinal use back in 2017. Since then, several medical cannabis clinics have sprouted across the nation.
Patrons of the restaurant have said, ““I’ve never taken cannabis before, it feels weird but it’s delicious,” and, “it’s quite strange.”
Kanokwan Vilawan, the Thai deputy education minister, noted that the country wishes to reach an international audience with their famous cannabis-infused Thai cuisine, and plans to add more popular Thai dishes to the growing list of cannabis menu items, such as green curry and pad thai.
