When asked for suggested ways to use the product, Insley told Olive Oil Times, “ Pot d’Huile is at home in a range of recipes including salad dressing, hummus, olive oil cakes and cookies. Instead of relying on the unhealthy (and often un-delicious) products currently on the market, users can work with their own culinary creativity to develop healthful, delicious food that also offers the cannabis experience they are looking for.”
Pot d’Huile’s makers claim, “ we are the only olive oil that’s dosage-specific and flavor-neutral.” A fifth of a teaspoon of Pot d’Huile delivers one milligram of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). The recommended dose for light cannabis users is two to four milligrams, which has a similar effect to a glass of wine. Seasoned cannabis users can enjoy five to ten milligrams; the equivalent of three glasses of wine.
Biochemist Allison Comiso Bordsen was eventually recruited by the upstart. She devised a successful processing method that ensures consumers receive the maximum benefits from the product. The process is a closely guarded secret, Insley said. Pot d’Huile cannot be patented as cannabis remains illegal under federal law.
Pot d’Huile aims to satisfy the culinary cravings of both gastronomes and cannabis connoisseurs. Certified extra virgin olive is infused with cannabis extract to produce Pot d’Huile. Its users are able to control their dosage and experience.
The cannabis infused olive oil, which can be used in place of regular olive oil, is guaranteed to bring a touch of pizzazz to even the dreariest dish. Carolyn Insley, Pot d’Huile’s account coordinator promises, “ Users will certainly feel the effects of cannabis.”
Pot d’Huile is the only brand available that allows users peace of mind knowing exactly how much they are dosing through a simple measurement. One milligram of THC is present in one milliliter of PdH, which creates an easy ratio for developing recipes and planning for dosage. A simple rule of thumb to remember when cooking with PdH is that 1 milliliter of PdH olive oil is equivalent to 1 milligram of THC, allowing for easy dosage depending on desired effect.
Pot d’Huile urges all users to start smart and stay smart with edibles. Our dosage consistency helps ensure that the experience of ingesting cannabis is a pleasant one. We strongly encourage starting with a small dose.
But there’s another brand cashing in on the marijuana boom, too. At Pot d’Huile, founder Yannick Crespo says “people who have used one or two teaspoons of Pot d’Huile on salads or pasta have always felt a nice, pleasant buzz.” Prices there start at $42.50 for an 100-milliliter bottle, or you can splurge for the 375-milliliter bottle at $140.
“Olive oil is a naturally healthy fat that has a far superior nutritional value than other oils, plus you can add it to any meal,” founder Maya Elisabeth explained to Food Republic. “The inspiration behind our [cannabis] olive oil was to make something that was sugar- and gluten-free and really versatile.”
Om Edibles olive oil is only available at California dispensaries while Pot d’Huile is offered at both dispensaries and the company’s website.
The California-based company has created a weed-infused olive oil with all the standard characteristics of regular olive oil—plus a dose of THC. Each four-ounce bottle contains either CBD or THC, and cost around $24 to $30. You can use it anywhere and everywhere you would regularly use olive oil—from salads to bread to pasta—and benefit from a slight, calming effect.
If you prefer to indulge your weed habit in ways other than smoking, you can pick up marijuana-infused beer, weed-laced Nutella, and even weed macarons. But if you’ve ever wanted to be able to cook even more with your cannabis, Om Edibles has something for you.
One important thing to note: Make sure not to heat the olive oil above 350 degreed F, as it would cause the CBD and THC properties of the marijuana to break down. And what’s the fun in that?
