Pleasurably palatable and potent?Locals Social Club in Shoreline is one of the newer medical marijuana collective gardens in the area, having opened in September, but with its nice selection of medibles — including some potent Lemon Pot-Poppy Seed Muffins — the club is sure to have lots of repeat customers.Friendly and knowledgeable budtender Nick guided me through Locals’ extensive selection of treats — the shop’s small refrigerator is absolutely packed to the gunwales with ’em — cookies, cupcakes, fudge, “Whales’ Tails” (think Goldfish, except medicated), and much more.My Lemon Pot-Poppy Seed Muffin was moist and fresh, revealing its scrumptious sweet/savory secrets in a much more subtle style that your average medible. As Nick proudly and accurately noted, Locals has one hell of a talented cannabis cook.So far, so good — the muffin tasted great. But how thrilling? As you may have noted in past columns, too often cannabis-laced treats just don’t have a substantial enough dose in them, especially for serious pain patients.Let me assure you that such is not the case with these mighty marijuana muffins. An hour after consuming this treat, it kicked my weak attempt at jaded nonchalance in the ass. I wasn’t unhappy to realize I was heavily medicated, with back pain gone and a pleasantly fuzzy buzzing sensation in my head.Big kudos to the cook for combining delicious culinary qualities and adequate dosage into one treat. And one of the coolest things about these muffins is you can get them for a donation of only $3 each, or two for $5. I call that one of the best medibles values around.You can find Locals Social Club at 938 N. 200th Street, Suite B, Shoreline, telephone 629-4985. They’re open late for your convenience, from 10 a.m. until midnight Sunday through Thursday and from 10 a.m. until 3 a.m. Friday and Saturday nights.Incredible Medibles wants to review your cannabis-infused food items.
