So Cannabis-Infused Salmon Is Now A Thing And It Looks Intriguing

Bringing a whole new meaning to 'smoked salmon'


So cannabis-infused salmon is now a thing and we're pretty intrigued by it.

Made by Rosenberg's Bagels and Delicatessen in Denver, the salmon may look like standard gravlax you'd find in a bagel with some cream cheese, but the difference is this stuff will get you stoned.

Cured in salt, dill, lemon, sugar and a weed tincture, the THC-infused fish is the brainchild of the delicatessen's owner, Josh Pollack, who created the dish as a way to celebrate the stoner holiday of April 20 (4/20 for those in the know). Pollack told The Guardian,

It puts two things that people really love together. That’s why I did it. There were people freaking out when they heard about it.


The drugged seafood proved so popular that it's now become a permanent fixture of the delicatessen's menu.

To meet Colorado law surrounding edible marijuana, Pollack ensures that every three ounces of fish (a bagel-sized amount) contains no more than 10 milligrams of the weed tincture.

While cannabis has long been baked into sweet treats like brownies, Pollack wanted to provide an edible option for those people who don't have much of a sweet tooth.

While the salmon contains cannabis and has its narcotic effect, it doesn't have the taste. Pollack's curing process gives the salmon what he calls a “tiny herbaceous flavour."
