Cannabis-themed cooking competition is almost too mellow.

Appropriate with guidance

This is a show if you are willing to let your children in on the ins and outs of cannibas. As it becomes legal they may be being offered marijuana earlier in life rather than later. This show talks about the effects of ingested marijuana while also being interesting because of the gourmet food. The show also features facts and interesting tidbit about pot. Watch with discression, but there minimal profanity and is quite interesting.

Too much drinking/drugs/smoking

Is It Any Good?

Our review:

This fun but almost too laid-back competition was obviously made quickly and sloppily: Guest judges are unrecognizable, there's an absence of drama, and the chefs aren't even competing for money or prizes. That being said, there's an extremely low-key charm to its complete lack of ambition. It's as if the producers of Cooking on High aren't even really trying to create a competition, but a chill kickback where a bunch of friendly stoners can chat about their marijuana hobby while they partake in it -- the equivalent of, like, a pottery class, but for weed lovers.
