Chef Charleen Caabay was pulled into the kitchen as a young girl, strongly influenced by her Filipino family and expanded into culinary cannabis in her late teens and early twenties. She made all the mistakes that you make when you start out creating your first edibles. Thankfully she figured out the best way to make a potent batch of brownies and learned to make her own concentrates so she could increase the potency of any dish she was making.
Chef Charleen‘s (@chefcharleen) career has taken her many places, from the winner of the Food Network’s 2017 Chopped cooking competition, to hosting pop-up dinners, running dispensaries, supporting entrepreneurs and working on her own edibles and beverage line, she is a powerhouse fuelled by cannabis!
In this conversation we talk about her early influences, how she makes her own concentrates, her go-to edibles, how she calculates potency, partnering with Levo Oil, her work as co-founder of the People’s Ecosystem and a lot more. Enjoy!
