Someone is going to be in bad shape after eating two of those, let alone judging a whole competition's worth.  It's like how they usually take an hour or two to kick in, so in the meantime you have a second one and then you realize what a huge mistake you made soon after

How do you even judge that? You can't have the same person trying them all and different people get different kinds of high.

Someone should bake one batch with Marinol, just for the lols.

Also if you're making brownies, use pot oil rather than butter or they'll turn out hard as rocks.

I use the Dennis Peron method of adding a cup of brandy to help the oils release from the bud, and keep it on a double boiler for several hours til the alcohol and water evaporate. Filter with cheesecloth and you're good to go.

Replying to myself, you can also use vodka if you want a more neutral flavor for savory cooking. The brandy is a bit sweeter. And use high quality cooking oil.

Friend of a friend is a baker by trade.  He made some rosemary rye bread with strong cannabis oil. It tasted amazing. None of the green funky earthy armpit flavour that every other cannabis edible I've eaten has had in varying levels. This tasted like delicious fresh rye bread with butter and rock salt, all of which combine nicely to mask the funk.  Very very tasty.

And deceptive.  Nobody told me that the yummy rye bread was "the" bread that they'd been talking about earlier in the day until after I'd eaten several slices of bread with various savoury toppings.  Kicked my ass, and I am hardly a lightweight n00b.

I made some brownies once with a buddy of mine. We melted some butter down and then poured a bag of pot into the melted butter. Let it simmer for a while until the pot itself looked burnt and used.... then strained out the butter to use for brownies.

We made the brownies, and the turned out fine. We each ate one and we were happy for the whole night. He goes home and all is well.

Then my wife gets home from work. I'm high as a kite, and she's complaining about the smell. I try to explain it to her, but she isn't listening... oh well, I think. I'm just gonna crash, so I go to bed. I wake up a few hours later to my wife with the pan of brownies on the couch... eating and eating and eating.

She ate the whole farking pan. She'd never been high before, so that made for a wild night. She REALLY enjoyed the TV shows she was watching, and we had a lot of fun in... other ways... She eventually passed out after a couple hours of giggling and other nonsense.

I'm not saying pot is for everyone, but give it a shot. It's a good time.

Unless you're a cop who confiscated the weed, THEN baked it into brownies. Then you call 911 to say "I think we're dead, I really do" But don't worry, it will all be ok because, y'know, cop

That green flavor is mostly from the chlorophyll. You can remove it by backing you bud at exactly 165F, which is four degrees lower then the melting point of THC, but high enough to break down the chlorophyll, leaving you with just the slightly peppery flavor and none of the lawn clipping taste.

Funny, I've heard the same statement made in the following manner:

So basically you can't quite get beyond:

FTFA : Prizes will also be given for speedy joint-rolling, though fair organizers insist there won't be any marijuana consumption on-site.

Free clue : People were toking at your fair even before you started holding pot related competitions, and if you think it isn't going to happen now, then you must be totally stoned.
 
2014-01-27 11:40:50 PM  

jaylectricity: How do you even judge that?


My understanding is that the brownies will be judged by flavor alone.  And off-site, not at the fair.  At the fair: pictures of prize winning plants.   And a joint rolling contest with oregano.

Hmmm, would guess the off-site brownie tasting will be conducted somewhat like a wine tasting, i.e., bite/taste/spit/rinse/repeat.

Now, I suppose the oregano roll-off, at the fair proper will draw a crowd.  If they had any sense they'd only allow pinners to be twisted ("it's so good we can smoke  tiny amounts).  However, I expect the contestants will roll stogies the size of boxcars and origami doobies with the dimensions of a pterodactyl for the delight of the fair goers and the media, e.g., `yes, Laura, most of the entries were the size of Arnold's forearm and the winning entry contained enough oregano to (according to our resident chef)  season 10,000 pizzas!!!! -more, right here on faux, at the top of the hour!)'

Gas oven set just right with constant monitoring with a infra red themometer., also if you melt the THC it's not a huge deal, you'll just have to use some butter to get any that melted on to the pan.
And I don't know if sous vide would work as it's usually done in a vacuum bag and you need to be able to out gas the chlorophyll.

That I completely agree with.

Hopefully the rest of the country follows their lead some day, but sadly I live in the bible belt, so the odds of me having a smidgen of my rights returned any time soon are rather poor.

Ayup.  I once scarfed down a couple of mary-jane chocolate chip cookies at a friend's place without understanding that they had that special ingredient.  The friend sent me home immediately (45 min. drive) for safety's sake.  Fortunately, the effects kicked in just as I walked in my front door, leading to an hour of what my wife called "cute-goofy" behavior.

Well, if you immerse it in oil/butter first you don't necessarily need to use a vacuum sealed bag to get it to heat through to the right temp. A ziploc freezer bag would work (I guess it would have to be food safe to 165 F) and allow the gasses room to separate. If you rig it carefully you could sous vide it with the bag vented even.
/ Gas oven! What are you, a billionaire?

Yeah, and how fresh is this oregano? Rolling a joint out of this shiat we get in jars in our spice rack is nothing like rolling weed.

Last summer I rolled a cigarette for a friend based on how I usually roll joints and he said it was the best cigarette he ever smoked.

But oregano? Maybe if you soak it.

There won't actually be any marijuana at the fairgrounds. The judging will be done off-site, with photos showing the winning entries

Well that's stupid.

Hey, let's legalize pot! YAY!
Hold on, what's that pot doing out in a public place like that near kids? Better take TWO STEPS BACK COLORADO.

It's a farking joke and you know it. Nobody has beer competitions with ice tea substituted for the real thing or grape juice for wine judging.

It's giving into hardline bullshiat.
