One of the great pleasures of visiting medicinal cannabis farmer's markets is exploring the selection of medicated edibles often to be found at these events. My most recent visit to the Washington Farmer's Market in Olympia was no exception: I discovered some delicious Butterscotch & Potato Chip Cookies made by Becca of Zombie Cakes. These cookies are exactly what they sound like: a delicious combination of sweet and salty, and Becca didn't forget to include enough hash oil to have a kick.
Zombie Cakes cookies come in a two-pack for a $5 donation. To Becca's great credit, she includes dosage information on the label: "1 cookie = 50 mg of hash oil." Given typical hash oil potencies, this works out to around 30 or 40 milligrams of THC, marijuana's active ingredient.
This means that for high-dose daily patients like myself, it's a good idea to go ahead and eat both cookies at once (I did, and they worked). Patients with a lower tolerance may want to eat one of the cookies, then wait an hour to gauge the effects before having the second one.
While you're visiting the Zombie Cakes table, check out Becca's Pumpkin Bread, as well. The slice I had was moist, fresh, delicious with a glass of milk -- and potent. According to the label, one slice equals 150 milligrams of hash oil, a respectable and effective enough dose to Zombie-fy most patients.
Look for Zombie Cakes at the Washington Farmer's Market, 3211-A Yelm Highway, Olympia, located at the Sonshine Organics compound. The market is held from 10:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. on the first and third Saturday of each month, but Zombie Cakes goodies are available at Sonshine from 10 to 7 Monday to Friday, and 10:30 to 5:30 on Saturday.
