I have never been much of a cook.
Opening a can of soup, or microwaving some Ramen noodles is about the extent of my culinary comprehension, and my neighbor Joe and I were about to take a long road trip, and he suggested that my pal and I make some edibles for the ride.
I thought it was a good idea, however wasn’t comfortable with the idea of making them myself. I bought some brownie mix and brought my sack of indica over to Joe’s house for the grand experiment of making our first ever batch of pot brownies. There was a small risk involved, because if the brownies got burned or otherwise ruined, then my pal and I were out a quarter ounce of cannabis. Although I greatly preferred smoking cannabis to eating it, there are several advantages to edibles while on a road trip, however first of all is the aroma – cannabis has such an intense aroma that cops will notice it if they pull you over. Cannabis edibles have none of that aroma, and are much easier to escape detection from the law, however secondly, I have consistently found it difficult to light a bowl of cannabis in a moving car, but even with the windows up, it’s hard to get a correct high while I am driving. Cannabis edibles are a lot more mellow, however for the sheer sake of convenience they are perfect for travel, then we also hid a small baggie of cannabis in a pop can in the trunk, so my pal and I can get properly high at the end of the trip. And feel what, the pot brownies weren’t that bad!
