After a devastating body surfing accident more than 20 years ago left her with torn muscles and a broken back, the lady who now goes by the moniker Mama Kush was first introduced to the pain relieving properties of pot by a concerned friend. Mama went on to become a master pastry chef, trained by Le Cordon Bleu and the Culinary Institute of America, and used her skills to create cannabis-infused edibles for a friend suffering from cancer.
When Mama first started taking her savory medicated croutons to dispensaries in 2008, she was told “people only want sweet, come back with some Rice Krispie treats!” Recalling that memory, Mama laughed, “I can make anything and everything—I want to infuse products no one has seen before.
