Weed sommelier school in US teaches correct marijuana use

Weed sommelier school in US teaches correct marijuana useOrganisations such as the Trichome Institute are now offering courses to teach people how to answer that and other important weed-paring questions by better understanding the complexities of the marijuana plant. The institute has trademarked a term for the skill: interpening, for interpreting marijuana terpenes, the organic in the plants essential oils.

The idea is that every marijuana variety has a unique flower structure and collection of terpenes that produce very specific scents. By learning how to distinguish those scents, people can figure out what effect different strains of the plant will have on the senses when usedand perhaps what foods it might go best with. The Trichome Institute offers two interpening courses for $324 total, according to the institutes website (there are group discounts).

Thanks to the handful of US states that have relaxed laws on the recreational use of marijuana, the door has opened for all sorts of new pot-related businesses. People are now allowed to use the drug in Washington DC, Alaska, Colorado, and Oregon. And five states in NovemberArizona, California, Maine, Massachusetts, and Nevadawill have recreational use of marijuana initiatives on the ballot.

Already Philip Wolf, the founder of Cultivating Spirits, a restaurant in Silverthorne, Colorado, is incorporating knowledge gained from two courses he took at the institute into his gourmet meals, according to Bloomberg. While Wolf said he doesnt expect weed to replace wine at the dinner table, he told Bloomberg he wouldnt be surprised if it bit into the sales of hard liquorsomething the alcohol industry has been nervous about for months.

Wolf offers two tailored marijuana dining experiences that range from $125 to $249 per person. Included in the least expensive deal: being chauffeured in a limo from your home to various dispensaries and eateries, with between-course cannabis tastings.
