?The breadth and depth of cannabinated culinary creativity displayed on the Seattle

?The breadth and depth of cannabinated culinary creativity displayed on the Seattle medical marijuana collective scene continues to impress, even as variations in quality and potency make it very much a caveat emptor scenario.On a recent Thursday, North Seattle Medical Collective had one medible that was entirely new to me: Cotton Head brand cannabis “Candy Fluff” (cotton candy).Budtender T.J. told me NSMC had lowered the price from $10 a bucket to $6, because, as he said, “It’s just not as potent as we’d like it to be.” Still, I couldn’t resist buying a bucket of it, and the $6 price point made that decision easier for me.According to the label, the product includes .10 grams of Rick Simpson oil; perhaps they should have put in .25 grams, judging by the (non-)potency problem.The strain used in preparing the candy was a sativa called “Fat Barbarian,” according to the quite informative and professional-appearing label. That’s not a variety I’ve ever had the pleasure of toking, but it certainly sounds as if it’d be right down my alley.There are 100 grams of cotton candy in the bucket, and it’s so sweet, some patients may have trouble finishing the stuff in order to get the medicinal benefits of the infused cannabis; that’s another good reason to up, as in at least double, the dosage included.If you’re sensitive to food dyes, be aware this product has several of them: FD&C Blue #1, Red #3, Red #40, Yellow #5, and Yellow #6; evidently these were necessary to achieve the pastel shade of the “Green Apple” flavored candy floss.North Seattle Medical Collective is at 13000 Linden Ave. N., Suite 100, inside Linden Place, directly across from Bitter Lake Park. They’re open 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Saturday, and from 11 to 8 on Sundays.
