Infused meals and events are popping up all over the St. Louis area, with even more on the horizon.
Co-owners chef Snoop Hollins and Denise Winfield-Hollins create CBD- and THC-infused dishes for Missouri’s medical marijuana patients.
Some have been in the business for awhile, like Rooted Buds, which caters private events, hosts cooking demos and pops up around the city with infused food. Co-owners chef Snoop Hollins and Denise Winfield-Hollins founded the company in 2019 after Missouri legalized medical marijuana. They’ve expanded its offerings since adult use was legalized earlier this year. The duo combines their passion for entertaining and education by providing great experiences designed to show guests the benefits of cannabis.
