In 2015, Elise McDonough became the first-ever Edibles Editor at High Times.

Cannabis and doughnuts

In 2015, I became the first-ever Edibles Editor at High Times, in charge of art directing photo shoots and deciding cannabis-infused products coverage; testing, styling and producing recipe content as well as producing two live culinary events dubbed the “Cannabis Cook-Off” where chefs competed for the title of High Times Top Cannabis Chef.

During my career at High Times, I wrote over 100 Psychedelicatessen recipe columns, judged over 500 edibles as a head judge at the Cannabis Cup, conducted educational seminars, moderated panel discussions and produced a five-part YouTube series titled “The Ultimate Cannabutter Experiment” with over 1.5 million views.
