Before cannabis was legal in Michigan, my friends and I used to bake up weed brownies.
They weren’t very good.
They had a strange taste and texture. We didn’t know anything about the potency of the weed and so had no clue about dosing. We sometimes ate way too much and had a bad experience. Because of this, I was reluctant to try the cannabis-infused edibles at the dispensary. Now that recreational cannabis is legal in Michigan, I’m able to shop for a wide variety of products in Ann Arbor. I tried out the dried flower, pre-rolls, vapes, concentrates, extracts and tinctures. The budtenders kep recommending the cannabis-infused edibles. I finally admitted that I was worried about bad flavors and textures. They assured me that the process of infusing cannabis into edible treats has come a long way. When I finally agreed to give them a try, I was amazed. I’ve now become a fan of edibles. I like that I don’t need any specialized skills or accessories. Edibles are incredibly easy to consume. They don’t create any odors, ash or odors. The local dispensary carries a huge menu of options. I can choose from traditional brownies, gummies of all flavors and cookies. There are also milk, dark and white chocolates, hard candies, peanut butter cups, popcorn, mints and capsules. Just recently they have added a selection of beverages. There are cannabis-infused tonics, colas, root beers, lemonades, mocktales and cannabeers. There is a line of cooking oils, butters and marinara sauces. I am having a lot of fun trying out the different options. I like the intensity and delayed onset of effects.
