YOUR GUIDE TO MARIJUANA IN COLORADO


14 Burning Ambition
Mason TVert has been pushing pot for a decade.

Our updated guide to the metro area’s dispensaries.
Despite potency limits, Colorado recreational-strength edibles pack a punch.
By William Breathes
While actual marijuana buds probably weren’t anything new to most non-medical cannabis consumers when the sale of recreational potbecame legal on January 1, the huge variety of edible forms must have been an eye-opener for many longtime Stoners accustomed to only
the occasional batch of pot brownies. You can now find just about any confection under the Colorado sun loaded up with cannabis and for sale at your local pot shop. But unlike medical marijuana edibles, which aren’t limited in their potency, recreational cannabis edibles can contain no more than 100 milligrams of THC. That might sound like a bummer for those searching for new heights of stoned-dom, but 100 milligrams can be about 60 to 80 milligrams too many for those who only occasionally dabble in altered states of consciousness.
To help steer you to the right stuff, I test- drove some of the recreational-potency
cannabis treats currently for sale in Colorado.
1. Incredibles cannabis-infused chocolate bars (with pop rocks!) — 100 mg THC
Like a Hershey’s bar, an Incredibles bar is easily divided into a dozen smaller chocolates. Each perforated chunk is about 8 milligrams, so I started with two and waited about thirty minutes for the wave of stoned warmth to start slowly kickingin. Creamy whitechoco-late is the first wave of flavor that hits your tongue, and each subsequent bite releases sugary, fruity blasts from the crunchy pop rocks inside. There’s a brief earthy aftertaste and a light tingle in the throat from the hash oil, but the lingering flavor of chocolate eventually covers it up. Impatient after an hour, I munched half of the bar and spent the rest of my Saturday blissfully going through my ’90s CD collection and rocking out to continued on page 10
