I’ve been getting more and more into edibles lately. I think it’s just boredom, because since COVID started my smoking has gone through the roof. So much time trapped inside, and also a low-grade fear of going back out into society, there is a lot more time than ever before to sit around and get high. I will sit around and get high for days on end, binge-watching TV shows I don’t even like just to pass the time. So it was the boredom that initially pushed me into the kitchen and got me experimenting with making edibles. I had enough cannabis so that even if I messed up these first attempts, I still had plenty to smoke. It was an interesting experiment, but the pot brownies were terrible. I wasn’t sure if the problem was the brownie, or the cannabis, so I tried something wildly different. I was hungry for pasta, so I mixed some finely ground cannabis into the marinara sauce. It blended right in with all the other herbs and spices, and the marinara was so tasty I didn’t even notice the cannabis in it. About the hour later I realized I was still sitting on the couch, empty bowl in my lap, staring at the TV mindlessly. The pot brownies had been a bust, but the cannabis infused pasta sauce was a roaring success. I made sure to pack up the rest of the sauce, because I still had almost half a batch left and this was the best cannabis edible that I had ever tasted!
