Here we arrive at the spic-and-span culinary school kitchen, with a handful of folks turning cannabis into sodas, breath mints, truffles, lotion, Tootsie Rolls, fudge, you name it—as long as it’s not baked. When asked about the irony, Marketing Coordinator Lily Colley responded, “We’re trying to get away from that brownie everyone’s had a bad experience with.”
Jaymie Giordano co-heads the kitchen with Mitch Stowell. When she initially graduated from culinary school, Giordano wanted to be a cake decorator. She’s been at Dixie just over a year and loves her job. When I asked her what her favorite product was, Giordano was quick to answer, “Topicals are the best.” Women, who have more mucus membrane—thus allowing them to absorb topicals better than men—especially like the bath salts. Topicals don’t have any psychoactive properties, but the injured can use them to heal and others simply to relax.
