Just before 420, Chef Cody AKA The Wellness Soldier officially announced his retirement. On April 17, this statement was posted on The Wellness Soldier Facebook page, “THANK YOU to everyone that has supported me! As of today, I will be ceasing all operations as The Wellness Soldier. It has been a fun time, met some amazing people and companies.” 

A well-known Chef and cannabis activist, Chef Cody is a favourite here at CLN and within the cannabis community. Popular for good reason, Chef Cody doesn’t just make delicious edibles, he shares his recipes and techniques. From savoury to sweet, he has great ideas for healthy infusions and explains the concepts behind what you are cooking.  

Chef Cody began his career as a cook in the military but was released from service after seven years and two tours. As a civilian, he focused on his passion for cooking, got his Red Seal Certification, and found a love of cannabis. Aware of the positive impact that it has in treating PTSD, he created new cannabis edible concepts and opened up the world of infused dining. 

With a focus on healthy yet delicious foods, Chef Cody never forgot to give back to the community. The Annual Veterans Dinner was an event held to honour and celebrate Veterans; it ran for four years and was a ticketed event with a multicourse meal, free for veterans to attend. When asked why he put in the effort, Chef Cody replied that Food is morale. If there was one thing to be said about this Wellness Soldier, it would be that he is very good at boosting morale.
