These triple chocolate brownies can pack an unexpected punch. (Bruce Wolf, The Cannabist)

Taking pot brownies to the next level (recipe)

Killer Queen is a mostly sativa hybrid that had my husband and I kind of wiped — in a good way, but still.

Although I found that I was productive and energized, there were a couple of hours that had me unusually wasted. I liked the high a lot, but it was wickedly potent. Sometimes, when I am creating new recipes with a new strain, I foolishly eat more of my products than I should. I know that I need to take a bite and wait a bit. I just didn’t. Neither did my photographer hubby Bruce.

How much is enough? The effects of edibles are different for everybody. Eight tips for getting the right dose

I decided to use this strain to make both butter and oil. I have been experiencing some minor but annoying back pain, and I understand that Killer Queen is good for inflammation and helps alleviate aches and pains.

Honestly, I was too high to know if anything hurt. Yikes. In addition to making these gooey and fudgy pot brownies, I made myself a bowl of penne pasta for dinner, sautéing grape tomatoes, scallions, baby shrimp and crushed red pepper in canna-olive oil. I think I remember that it was real good. Enjoy!
