    Thanks to the cannabis-infused culinary creativity which enlivens the medibles scene in the Emerald City, medical-marijuana patients can go far beyond the sweets such as medicated brownies or cookies. It's now easy to eat an entire meal infused with potent pot, and that new paradigm extends to traditional snack fare like the peanut butter and jelly sandwich.

    Seattle's Finest Edibles makes both Sticky Icky medicated peanut butter, and medicated grape jelly and strawberry jam, both available in four-ounce jars at selected local access points for $20 each. Nostalgically remembering the countless PB&J sandwiches from my youth -- and curious to see if this stuff actually works -- I got a jar each of the grape jelly and the peanut butter.

    I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of both the peanut butter (delicious, fresh and creamy) and the grape jelly, and couldn't taste cannabis in either of them. The labels, however, assured me that both products were medicated. One tablespoon of the jelly is considered a "dose," whereas it takes two tablespoons of the peanut butter. This, fortunately, works out together to make a perfect peanut butter and jelly sandwich.

    It only took about 50 minutes to realize that the labels weren't bullshittin' -- these products are indeed infused with cannabis (four doses per jar, according to the labels), and they do help to substantially reduce pain while inculcating a pleasantly fuzzy mode of thinking that almost certainly means you should enjoy these treats at home.

    While I applaud the impulse of Seattle's Finest in providing nutrition information on the labeling, I really wish said labels were easier to read. The jelly label yielded up its tiny secrets after close perusal under a reading lamp, but try as I might, parts of the peanut butter label were just too tiny and too blurry to make any sense of.

    I got my medicated peanut and jelly from Mr Nice Guys Delivery, serving most of Olympia and Lacey. To arrange for deliveries within 24 hours, call 360-528-9870. For more information, visit mrniceguys.net.
