After exploring the amateur side of cooking, Netflix is returning this month with something a bit more, dare we say it, highbrow.

On June 22nd, the internet streaming service will release Cooking On High, a new cooking show which has a sticky green speciality, reports High Times. What’s that, you ask? Everything they prepare must feature a healthy dose of cannabis.

The show, which Netflix describes as the “first-ever competitive cannabis cooking show,” sets two chefs against one another as they whip up dishes for celebrity judges, who are reportedly “very chill,” and who would seem to have some very serious cases of the munchies.

Hosted by YouTuber and skit-master Josh Leyva with help from comedian and reefer professional Ngaio Bealum, Netflix subscribers can likely expect a rollicking ride of a show, with plenty of overly-dry mouths and hopefully no overly-dry baked goods.

With more states legalizing and decriminalizing the possession of marijuana for recreational consumption, more entertainment companies are adapting their business models to include the substance. Viceland, for instance, launched Bong Appétit in 2016, which chronicled the production of cannabis dinner parties.

So sit back and get ready to watch both people and food get baked, blitzed, smoked and burned.
