Seattle's flowering of cannabis culinary creativity continues with the advent of Seattle's Finest Edibles Pot Corn, medicated popcorn containing marijuana-infused butter. A $10 bag of Pot Corn comes complete with a professional-looking label and even Nutrition Facts (albeit almost illegible ones).
The first thing I noticed about Pot Corn was that just about every single kernel in the bag successfully popped -- a higher (no pun intended) ratio than I've ever seen with brands like Orville Redenbacher and Jiffy Pop. So far, so good.
Properly impressed, I taste-sampled the Pot Corn and was quite surprised to detect no trace of the tell-tale marijuana taste so prevalent in many cannabutter-based medibles. As far as I could tell, this was regular popcorn -- fresh and delicious.
It turns out the only challenge associated with Pot Corn -- since it's considered just one dose, with the equivalent, according to the label, of "1 Gram Cannabis" -- is finishing the bag by yourself. Of course, you likely won't have any trouble enlisting enthusiastic help in eating the stuff -- it's quite good, and there's the getting stoned thing, which most folks don't seem to mind -- but if you share it, you don't get your full dose. Damn, homie, spring for two bags.
If you do make it all the way through the bag, and if you have a tolerance near average, you are going to get suitably medicated. Even with a high tolerance, the onset of effects from an entire bag of Pot Corn is noticeable, and welcome.
So cue up the movie or concert of your choice, relax, sit down with a bag of Pot Corn and enjoy. Just make sure you already have the munchies so you can finish the bag.
I got my Pot Corn medicated popcorn from Mr Nice Guys delivery, open 11-8 Sun., Wed., and Thurs., and from 11 to 10 Fri. and Sat. (closed Mon.-Tues.), with service available to most of Olympia and parts of Lacey (WA state ID and medical marijuana authorization required). For more information, call 360-528-9870, or visit mrniceguys.net.
