(NEW YORK) — Discovery+ has announced a new cooking competition show with a potent twist: weed. 

Hosted by comedian Ron Funches, Chopped 420 will feature “four budding cannabis chefs” who are “challenged to create tasty and mind warping dishes” using cannabis or CBD-infused products for each appetizer, entrée, and dessert they whip up. 

And they have to be original dishes, obviously: they can’t just make a munchies run to Taco Bell. 

At stake is a $10,000 grand prize. 

Naturally, the five-episode Chopped 420 series drops on Discovery+ on 4/20, the ‘high’ holiday of the stoner set.
