World’s Largest Brownie

A marijuana dispensary in Massachusetts cooked what it claims to be the world’s largest cannabis-infused brownie — an 850-pound THC treat.

MariMed, based in Norwood, celebrated the launch of its new brand Bubby’s Baked by cooking the brownie infused with 20,000 milligrams of TCH, the primary psychoactive ingredient in marijuana…

The brownie measures 3 feet long on each side and 15 inches high. It dwarfs the Guinness World Record holder for largest brownie, a 234-pounder made by Alabama’s Something Sweet Bake Shop in 2013…

“Unfortunately, Guinness World Records rejected our entry because they don’t accept cannabis-related records,” Ryan Crandall, MariMed’s chief product officer, told McClatchy. “That was a disappointment, but we’re still very proud of what we accomplished.”

Wish these folks were in business when I was still living in New England. My home, almost 40 years ago, was only 8 miles away from where they opened their bakery/dispensary. Yum!

    Using cannabis alongside other drugs may come with a significant risk of harmful drug-drug interactions, new research by scientists at Washington State University suggests.

    The researchers looked at cannabinoids—a group of substances found in the cannabis plant—and their major metabolites found in cannabis users’ blood and found that they interfere with two families of enzymes that help metabolize a wide range of drugs prescribed for a variety of conditions. As a result, either the drugs’ positive effects might decrease or their negative effects might increase with too much building up in the body, causing unintended side effects such as toxicity or accidental overdose.
    While more research needs to be done, the authors said one early takeaway from these studies is that it’s important to be careful when using cannabis with other prescription drugs.

    “Cannabinoids stay in your body only for about 30 minutes before they are rapidly broken down,” said first author Shamema Nasrin, a graduate student in the WSU College of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences. “The metabolites that result from that process stay in your body for much longer—up to 14 days—and at higher concentrations than cannabinoids and have been overlooked in previous studies, which is why we thought we should focus on those as well.”
