Mini Churro Whoopie Pie

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 plain stupid. I thought the same thing when I saw the packaging for every single Miss Mary Jane’s Edibles product, and I was equally inclined to pass on their offerings on principle. But when I learned they were based in “the OC,” it kind of made sense. I figured, “Fuck it. I’ll at least try these things.” That said, I truly hope the ubiquitous use of buxom women in the sale of controlled substances withers and dies as recreational cannabis becomes more normalized — but I’m certainly not holding my breath.

BS packaging aside, the Mini Churro Pies are pretty solid. They taste great and they’re very strong: Each bag contains 300 mg of THC, which means each of the six tiny cookies (roughly two inches in diameter) contains 50 mg of THC.

Baking high-octane products seems to be Miss Mary Jane’s thing, and some of her other confections include a Snickerdoodle Canna-Cookie with a whopping 250 mg, and a 200 mg English Toffee Brownie. In my opinion, 50 mg is still pretty potent for a deliciously crumbly cookie that could easily go down in one bite.

As I do with every new edible, I started with a few nibbles to test the waters, and then I waited. It took about an hour for it to kick in, and I was definitely feeling a mild-to-moderate high from my mouse-sized portion. I took another bite, and then another, and ended up eating about half a cookie, which got me stoned as hell. Like, not-stoked-to-see-people-in-thegrocery- store stoned. The high was super body-driven, and there were definitely some swirly cognitive things going on. They were manageable, but lightweights should definitely take note. (I consider myself to be a “medium- weight” connoisseur.)

Minus the weed-equivalent of a Jäger Girl on the packaging, I give Miss Mary Jane’s Edibles Mini Churro Whoopie Pies my blessing, and think they’d be a welcome addition to anyone’s stash.

The Basics: Each bag contains 300 mg of THC, divided up into six pieces that contain 50 mg 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 delightful. They are crusted in a shimmer of powdered sugar, and have a golden-tan hue. The cream filling is the icing on the cake.

Flavor: They taste like churros infused with the awesome warmth that cannabis brings to any baked good. They are crumbly, and then they are chewy. Unlike some mass-produced cookies, they aren’t chalky in the least.

Aroma: If you open the bag and stick your nose inside, it smells like a bag of churros. There is a faint waft of weed, like you might get from a cannabis-infused cookie, along with a pleasant hint of vanilla.

Medical Applicability: Given their strength, I probably wouldn’t use these for anxiety, as a mistaken dosage could lead to a pretty rough time in the ol’ noggin. I imagine these would be great for treating pain and nausea.

Overall Impressions: A great tasting, powerful edible. For as small as they are, they get you really high. These would be good to bring along on a trip to either the park or the mountains, as the sturdy, airtight bag appears to protect their structure quite nicely.
