Ever thought about making your pot brownies or trying to cook with cannabis? Well, you’re in luck because Kim Rael, CEO of Azuca, sat down to talk about incorporating THC and CBD into your favorite foods, and she also gave us a couple of delicious recipes for you to try at home!
Chef Ron Silver founded Azuca with the sole purpose of making products that anyone could use to incorporate THC or CBD into their food. Ron tried many products and always found that they were unreliable when put into a recipe and low-quality with bad aftertastes. So he created a line of products that are fast-acting, easy to dose, and highly bioavailable edible. Kim explained that Azuca’s patent-pending TiMETM Technology means that Azuca edibles take effect in 2-15 minutes versus traditional edibles, which can take up to 90 minutes.
Kim told us that Azuca product line that is available on their new eCommerce site and that they would be launching a wholesale line and a retail line into brick and mortar stores this year. Azuca’s goal is to take the guesswork out of edibles and puts you in control, for a comfortable, convenient experience you can count on every time. Azuca’s most popular products are their CBD and THC chocolates and their sugar that can easily be added to any recipe or your morning cup of coffee. They even make travel packets of sugar that you can conveniently take with you while traveling or dining out.
