850-Pound Pot Brownie Brings New Meaning To ‘Getting Baked’
Information about 850-Pound Pot Brownie Brings New Meaning To ‘Getting Baked’
A pot brownie made this week in Norwood, Massachusetts, is bringing new meaning to the term “getting baked.”
That’s because the dank dessert treat is an 850-pound monster measuring 3 feet wide, 3 feet long and 15 inches high. It contains more than 20,000 milligrams of THC.
The massive marijuana brownie was created by MariMed, a multi-state cannabis operator, to celebrate National Brownie Day, on Dec. 8 and to promote the company’s new brand, “Bubby’s Baked.”
Besides the cannabis, the behemoth brownie also contains 1,344 eggs, 250 pounds of sugar, 212 pounds of butter, 81 pounds of flour and 122 pounds of cocoa powder, among other ingredients.
A team of five cannabis confectioners needed 24 hours to make the brownie. It wasn’t easy, according to MariMed offical Ryan Crandall.
“One of the hardest parts was stabilizing the brownie,” Crandall told HuffPost by email. “We built a pallet and some supports to fortify the table it sat on to ensure the 850-pound brownie was safe.”
Crandall said the pot brownie’s THC content is equivalent to 4,000 of the company’s normal-sized brownies ― which contain 5 milligrams each.
Crandall says the plan is to sell the giant brownie to a medical marijuana patient in Massachusetts.
“The 20,000 mg of THC in the brownie actually falls within the max allowed for a medical patient in the state,” Crandall said.
Although the cannabis creation is larger than the current record holder of world’s largest brownie (243 pounds), Guinness World Records apparently isn’t that high on including it in a future book.
A MariMed rep said the company applied to have their brownie considered, but said Guinness World Records responded that it “no longer accepts applications or creates new record titles that are related to the consumption, preparation or use of tobacco, cannabis or nicotine products.”
