Thai hospital restaurant rolls out cannabis laced menu

A restaurant in Thai hospital has rolled out a cannabis laced menu for its patient and staff. Recall, that marijuana was legalise medically in 2018, in Southeast Asian country where they had ploughed ahead on the extraction, distillation and marketing of cannabis oil — eager to capitalise on the multibillion-dollar industry.

The plant itself was finally removed from the kingdom’s narcotics list last month, which means licensed providers — like hospitals — can now use its leaves, stems and roots in food.

However, the hospital’s wellness centre, which has a restaurant, introduced a new menu of Thai dishes offering a different sort of kick with the introduction of cannabis spicy soups and deep-fried marijuana just to mention a few of what’s on the menu but, to avoid over-consumption, the restaurant menu has a five-leaf maximum limit per customer, said doctor Pakakrong Kwankhao, who heads the Centre of Evidence-based Thai Traditional and Herbal Medicine in Chao Phya Abhaibhubejhr Hospital.
