A Thai restaurant started putting cannabis in their dishes to ‘enhance flavour’ after drug restrictions were relaxed in the country. The Yum Three Kingdoms restaurant added cannabis salad, shrimps marinated in marijuana leaves, and a selection of teas among others in Khon Kaen province. The restaurant’s specialty, raw salmon served with fresh cannabis leaves, has been the most popular because it is ‘affordable and unique’. All of their seafood dipping sauce were has also infused with cannabis giving a different kick to the traditional spicy fish sauce locals were used to. Kobchai Siharat, 25, the restaurant’s owner, said adding marijuana to their menu is the current trend in the food business as the Thai government approved parts of cannabis plants for use as ingredients.
