People would actually eat it if there are words such as organic or maybe artisanal, I'm not sure. But most food-related blogs or social media accounts can influence what people would want to try to eat. Just make eating edible weeds a trend or post-worthy. Remember it happened with rainbow bagels or avocado sandwiches.

I recently learned that the lambsquarter "weed" is related to quinoa, and the University of New Hampshire is experimenting with crossing quinoa with another similar relative for growing in New Englandhttp://colsa.unh.edu.../2017/08/quinoa

 

This, of course, brings up the question of why something spelled quinoa is actually pronounced  keynwa.
