A cannabis-infused churro sandwich that packs a punch.
I never drank St. Pauli Girl beer because I thought the woman on the label was just stupid. I thought the same thing when I saw the packaging of every Miss Mary Jane’s Edibles product, and I was equally inclined to pass on their offerings on principle. But when I heard they were based in ‘the OC’ it kind of made sense. I thought, “Fuck it. I’m going to try these things anyway.” That said, I really hope the ubiquitous use of chubby women in the sale of controlled substances withers and dies as recreational cannabis becomes more normalized – but I’m certainly not holding my breath.
Aside from the BS packaging, the Mini Churro Pies are pretty solid. They taste great and are very strong: each sachet contains 300mg of THC, which means that each of the six small cookies (about five centimeters in diameter) contains 50mg of THC.
Baking high-octane products seems to be Miss Mary Jane’s thing, and some of her other treats include a 250mg Snickerdoodle Canna-Cookie and a 200mg English Toffee Brownie. In my opinion, 50mg is still pretty potent for a delicious crumbly cookie that could easily go down in one bite.
As I do with any new edible product, I started with a few bites to test the water, and then I waited. It took about an hour to kick in, and I definitely felt a mild to moderate high from my mouse-sized portion. I took another bite, and another, and I ended up eating about half a cookie, which got me so stoned. Like, unfired-to-see-people-in-the-grocery-stoned. The high was super body driven, and there was definitely some mind-blowing cognitive stuff going on. They were manageable, but lightweights should definitely pay attention. (I consider myself an “intermediate” connoisseur.)
Without the weed equivalent of a Jäger Girl on the packaging, I give Miss Mary Jane’s Edibles Mini Churro Whoopie Pies my blessings and think they would be a welcome addition to anyone’s stash.
The base: Each bag contains 300mg of THC, divided into six pieces containing 50mg of THC each. Appearance: I think I’ve made my stance on the packaging pretty clear at this point. However, the whoopie pies themselves look delicious. They are covered in a glistening powdered sugar and have a golden brown hue. The cream filling is the icing on the cake.
Taste: They taste like churros infused with the amazing heat cannabis gives to any baked product. They are crumbly, and then they are chewy. Unlike some mass-produced cookies, they are by no means chalky.
Flavour: When you open the bag and stick your nose in it, it smells like a bag of churros. There is a faint hint of weed, like you might get from a cannabis infused cookie, along with a pleasant hint of vanilla.
Medical Applicability: Given their potency, I probably wouldn’t use these for anxiety as a wrong dosage can lead to a pretty rough time in the old noggin. I imagine these would be great for treating pain and nausea.
General impressions: A great tasting, potent edible. Because no matter how small they are, they really get you high. These would be good to take with you on a trip to the park or the mountains, as the sturdy, airtight bag seems to protect their structure quite well.
