As the stigma surrounding cannabis use begins to fade, more culinary professionals are jumping in to the edibles industry. Top Chef winner Hosea Rosenberg is pairing cannabis strains with his farm-to-table fare, locally beloved Seattle cupcake baker Jody Hall wants to become the Starbucks of weed food, and today, James Beard award winner Chef Mindy Segal announced the launch of her high-end edibles line in Illinois.
A press release from Segal's new partners, Cresco Labs, touts the product launch as "first high profile, award-winning celebrity chef to attach her personal brand to products in the cannabis industry."

Cresco Labs is the largest cannabis cultivator in the newly medical state, and using their concentrate as an ingredient will allow Segal to craft edibles that will "be consistent every time and absolutely enjoyable to eat."
RIHANNA TO LAUNCH MARIJUANA LINE DUBBED ‘MARIHANNA’
Rihanna was once a lucrative pop artist who released music pretty consistently. And while her long-awaited eighth studio album is supposed to drop at some point this millennium, no release date has been announced or (as far as we know) even secured. But Rihanna has many things for us to look forward to while we wait (including but not limited to socks, perfume, a second Diamond Ball and a styling agency called Fr8me), and she just announced one more: If recent reports are to be believed, the “FourFiveSeconds” singer will soon be selling weed.
According to the website Celeb Stoner, Rihanna will launch her very own line of weed called MaRihanna (do you get it? It sounds like marijuana). She reportedly made the announcement at the High Times Cannabis Cup in Negril, Jamaica, but there’s been no official confirmation from her camp as of yet.
The specific strains of weed will reportedly be called Karibbean Kush, Haitian Haze and Jamaican High Grade.

Leave it to Snoop Dogg to blaze a new trail in the marijuana industry. Earlier this week, the multiplatinum MC launched a line of cannabis products called Leafs by Snoop, and it's got weed and design enthusiasts alike drooling.
Considered the first mainstream cannabis brand in the world, thanks to its instantaneous name-recognition, the Leafs by Snoop suite of products includes eight different types of marijuana flower, each hand-picked by Snoop himself. Concentrates and edibles, including chocolate bars, gummies, and fruit chews, round out the collection.
Leafs by Snoop has more than a celebrity endorsement on its side. It has smart design.
