Thailand is experiencing a cannabis and hemp boom ever since parts of the plant with low traces of the psychoactive component, THC, were taken off the country’s narcotics list. Cafes across the country are now becoming weed-friendly, offering dishes and beverages made with cannabis and hemp leaves. But these dishes won’t get you high as they have less than 0.2% of THC or tetrahydrocannabinol.
The other prevalent component of cannabis is cannabidiol, or CBD, which is said to have medicinal properties and is used to ease pain as well as treat anxiety. From cannabis-infused Thai dishes, hemp-flavoured desserts to herbaceous tea, here are the top pot-friendly restaurants in Thailand to explore CBD food and drinks.
