CANNABIS UTOPIAN / WEED MERCENARY

Elise McDonough

A fifteen-year veteran of the cannabis industry and movement, Elise McDonough is the author of Bong Appetit, a bestselling cookbook based on the hit Viceland TV show, and The Official High Times Cannabis Cookbook, praised by Vogue‘s Jeffrey Steingarten as “in a category of its own—intelligent, savvy, and knowledgeable about food, with excellent general information about cannabis and cooking with it.”

 

A frequent contributor to Leafly, and a former longtime High Times staffer, she has helped many of the biggest names in the cannabis industry with event planning, package design, project management, creative direction and content marketing. She has been profiled as a cannabis expert and educator by The New York Times, Bon Appetit, The Associated Press, and Vice.
