LOS ANGELES, Sept. 26, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Leading cannabis lifestyle media and brand platform PRØHBTD today announced the start of pre-production on High Cuisine, a new travel, food and mind-altering docuseries, in partnership with Totem Media.

Debuting in 2019 across PRØHBTD's rapidly growing network and additional distribution partners to be announced, the 10-episode, 22 minute travel docuseries will follow chefs Noah Tucker and Anthony Joseph -- veterans of Michelin-starred restaurants in Amsterdam and London -- as they travel the world in search of local dishes and ingredients in a mission to collect ancient mind-expanding herbs and plants to create truly forbidden cuisine. Their 'psychoactive gastronomy' takes the recent cannabis cookery trend up a notch, using exotic (safe, and mostly legal) ingredients like kanna, Syrian rue and 'magic' mushrooms to create a semi-orchestrated journey over several hours, courses and states of mind.

"We are making a big push investing in premium content that expands PRØHBTD's voice and audience and High Cuisine is evidence of that," said PRØHBTD's Chief Content Officer, Joshua Otten. "Not only are Noah and Anthony incredibly gifted chefs driven by a passion to find unique ingredients and altered experiences, but this is the first non-scripted network cooking series we've seen that embraces food, travel and entheogens in a way that is truly authentic."

"High Cuisine puts a press on what is taboo and what is the line between what is comfortable, like food, and what maybe isn't comfortable, like the drugs different cultures experiment with. People have always been interested in food and drugs, but no one has ever really put them together in the way that we're doing it," says High Cuisine chef Noah Tucker.

The first episode of High Cuisine takes place in Amsterdam and follows the chefs as they uncover and explore dozens of mind-altering herbs, leaves, barks, roots and seeds, all native to the cultural city. The chefs meet local experts in historic Dutch medicinal herbs, as well as modern cannabis testing techniques and restaurateur colleagues. The series provides an interesting, tasty addition to contemporary psychedelic trends, whether it's the 'micro-dosing' of psychedelics for focus and creativity that has been popularized by Silicon Valley execs, or the boom in ayahuasca tourism and the correlating interest in indigenous tribal herbalism.

High Cuisine's vision is to revolutionize the dining experience by skillfully fusing together haute cuisine and ancient mind-expanding herbs and plants into mouth-watering recipes that will take you on an unforgettable culinary journey.

The High Cuisine trailer first debuted on Facebook and quickly went viral, garnering more than 2.8M views without any sponsor support or paid media. Watch the trailer now at prohbtd.com/highcuisine.
