Cheba Cheddar Scones

After a devastating body surfing accident more than 20 years ago left her with torn muscles and a broken back, the lady who now goes by the moniker Mama Kush was first introduced to the pain relieving properties of pot by a concerned friend. Mama went on to become a master pastry chef, trained by Le Cordon Bleu and the Culinary Institute of America, and used her skills to create cannabis-infused edibles for a friend suffering from cancer.

When Mama first started taking her savory medicated croutons to dispensaries in 2008, she was told “people only want sweet, come back with some Rice Krispie treats!” Recalling that memory, Mama laughed, “I can make anything and everything—I want to infuse products no one has seen before. No way am I making a Rice Krispie treat.”

Today, the Mama Kush product line includes diverse offerings like a moist teriyaki-flavored beef jerky, garlic hummus, granola, ravioli, doughnuts, marshmallows and kettle corn that you can find throughout California, especially in the San Diego and Los Angeles metropolitan area. You can even custom-order homemade medicated pies.

Mama focuses on all-natural ingredients, sourcing high-quality products and taking immense pride in her work.

“I want the purest oils, flours and herbs, and I don’t use BHO. I think it has a foul flavor,” she continued. “Don’t you want the best of the best?”

Cannabis Cup Edibles Judge

EDIBLES MMJ07I've been reviewing edibles for the High Times Cannabis Cup competitions since 2012, and have sampled over 500 sweet and savory infused items. Edibles are evaluated according to their taste, appearance, potency (as assessed by lab testing), originality, healthiness and quality of packaging and labeling information.

One of the objectives of the HIGH TIMES Cannabis Cup competitions has been to raise the bar for makers of infused products. In the edibles category, judges reward not only the competitors with the most professional packaging, but also the tastiest and most innovative new items.

When shopping for edibles, it’s best to find a treat that is dosed appropriately for you, meaning the recommended serving size should deliver your desired amount of THC in a portion that will satisfy a sweet tooth. Avoid the super-strong tiny truffle that needs to be sliced into razor-thin pieces for a decent dose, along with the huge slice of cheesecake that only delivers a small THC payload. The ideal edible is something that will neither get you too high or too fat, but please your palate with a dose that’s “just right.” Start with 20 to 50 milligrams if you’re a seasoned smoker, and nibble only 10 mg of THC if you’ve never used the herb before.—2013 Best Edibles List
