Making pot brownies

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 expertise… My buddy Joe and I were about to take a long road trip, and she advised that my friend and I make some edibles for the ride.

I thought it was a fantastic idea, but 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 household 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 I were out a quarter ounce of cannabis. Although I greatly favorite smoking cannabis to eating it, there are several advantages to edibles while on a road trip. First of all is the smell – cannabis has such an intense stink that cops will notice it if they pull you over. Cannabis edibles have none of that smell, and are much easier to escape detection from the law, but secondly, I have consistently found it hard to light a bowl of cannabis in a moving car, then even with the windows up, it’s difficult to get a proper high while I am driving. Cannabis edibles are a lot more mellow, but for the sheer sake of convenience they are perfect for travel. My friend and I also hid a small baggie of cannabis in a Tim Hortons Cappuccino can in the trunk, so my friend and I can get officially high at the end of the trip. And guess what, the pot brownies weren’t that bad!
