It's a lifestyle.
We are a lifestyle and movement that increases the awareness of cannabis and cannabinoid health benefits through carefully curated culinary experiences. We view food not only as dietary, but as a vehicle for medicinal cannabis dosage and consumption.
We reach our audience through community, catered dinners and events, vendor markets and more.
We love to collaborate. Get in touch!

FOUNDER & CHEF
Kimberly Barrett entered the cannabis industry through her love for food.
Growing up around the vast farmlands of Amherst/Hadley, Massachusetts, she was constantly surrounded by fresh produce. Raised with a farm-fresh mentality, she developed a deep love & appreciation for farmers, Mother Earth and agriculture.
Kimberly made her first batch of edibles at 18 years old upon discovering cannabis and its effects. She fell in love with the plant and its ability to help unwind the brain and relax--especially paired with music. Baking with it quickly helped her learn the safety precautions and responsibilities surrounding consumption.
Kimberly attended the Culinary Institute of America, graduating in 2010. She landed in New York City, working for companies like Dean & Deluca, Creative Edge, Pinch Food Design and HU Kitchen. Up through 2015 Kimberly gained invaluable experience; focusing primarily on being the best pastry chef. From 2015 to present, Kimberly has dedicated her time and energy to navigating and learning the cannabis industry. Her main goal is to produce the highest standard of medical-grade products.
Kimberly felt strongly compelled to start creating cannabis-infused food after living with an elderly woman battling stage 3 breast cancer. She watched her suffer through the day-to-day pain, and remain reluctant to the aid of smoking medical cannabis. Kimberly grasped how much cancer physically hurts patients and takes over their entire system: mind, body and spirit. She realized the importance of identifying medical patients' 1-on-1 plan with cannabis and their goals from consumption.
A few years later, back at home in Massachusetts, Kimberly’s father would suffer a stroke on Christmas Day. Shockingly, her father’s doctor was not at liberty to discuss the benefits of CBD for stroke patients--regardless of being in a legalized state. From that moment she knew her mission was to challenge the American healthcare system and fight for cannabis legislation: to federally take it off Schedule 1.
Enjoy was born. Kimberly put her 9-to-5 to the side and focused on being a full-time cannabis pastry chef. She began to combine good quality ingredients and medical-grade cannabis. She aims to offer safe and accessible cannabis-infused food. She is a strong advocate for the human right to nourish our endocannabinoid systems through health-conscious and educated consumption. An all-around "cannactivist," Kimberly strives to support other women and businesses in the industry, fight for legislation, and stay educated and up-to-date on cannabis science.
She’s on a journey which entails going into the unknown and being vulnerable!
