Making edibles can be an ordeal. Even basic recipes tend to use cannabutter or oil, which takes time, and lots of product, to create. Given the choice between labour-intensive kitchen science, and busting out the vaporizer, most of us choose the latter.
Happily, it just got much, much easier - insanely easy, in fact - to get a hit of THC with any drink or meal. The folks over at Prohibition Gold have created a much simpler way of incorporating cannabis into your food: neutral-tasting, powdered THC.
Dubbed Potshotz, the 10mg single-serving stick packs are small enough to fit in your wallet. Simply sprinkle the contents into any liquid to activate the THC. They've also designed a food version, Topshotz, a so-called "Culinary Marijuana Mixer" that can be mixed into sauces and dressings, or sprinkled on pizza or burgers.
“The prohibition on marijuana is ending and we’re already a long way from yesterday’s pot brownies," says co-founder Greg Walters. "We can’t wait to see how consumers innovate with our products. The possibilities for what you can add THC to are endless.”
But be sure to heed the warnings. "You wouldn't eat a pinch of cinnamon, oregano or pepper by itself, and we wouldn't recommend that with Topshotz either," writes Prohibition Gold on their site.
Seems like a great idea, no? But just as many states have moved to ban powdered alcohol, you can see how Potshotz might also run into issues: the convenience and surreptitiousness of the packets could encourage over-consumption.
For now, Prohibition Gold's wares are available exclusively at Seattle-area dispensaries, but if powdered THC catches on, you can expect lawmakers to start kicking up a fuss over Potshotz, posthaste.
