Arguably the funniest unofficial “holiday” that we as a society celebrate is 4/20. On April 20 of every year, everyone celebrates togetherness, peace and—most importantly—marijuana. Not everywhere allows the recreational usage of weed (so please be careful if you choose to partake), but if you have some cannabis at your disposal, you might as well cook up some delicious treats with them. We rounded up the best 4/20 cookbooks to try this holiday—including ways to DIY edibles or satiate the munchies. Whether you’re already high or looking to get there, you can’t go wrong with spending some time in the kitchen cooking up a cannabis storm.

Below, you’ll find 11 cannabis cookbooks (as well as cookbooks to help you make the ultimate high snack) that are the perfect buy this 4/20. From Snoop Dogg’s infamous From Crook to Cook cookbook to cookbooks that will teach you how to create your own weed candy from scratch, there’s no shortage of fun and easy recipes to try right now. If you’re stuck in your house with nowhere to go, you might as well indulge in these treats. Plus, you can show off your baking or chef skills and create the ultimate edible array.
