Pairing Food with Cannabis
Let’s talk about something I love dearly: FOOD.
Cast your mind. It was a warm July afternoon. The delivery dude shows up just as my shift concludes. From out of the heated pack he pulls out a paper bag. Inside sat a juicy bacon cheeseburger. The cheese had melted and crusted along the sides. The lettuce, tomato, cheddar, onions — truly mouth-watering. But wait! Something was missing. From inside my pocket, I pulled a tube containing full gram joint blend of the Red Hulk. Don’t wanna toot my own horn too much but this was my creation (Bruce Banner 3 x Purple Kush) and it was fire!
A quick bus ride later …
I parked up on my back patio step with the sun beaming down on me. I sparked the joint, took a few pulls, and brought out my burg. Good-god! Just by itself, that bacon bonanza was orgasmic. Burg + bud was phenomenal. Which brings me to point of all this: pairing eats with bud. You just don’t see this enough. Of course, there are edibles, but when you add cannabis to your treats you’re then dealing with a stronger/longer high.
I’m interested in complementary flavors. The earthy, diesel taste of the bud really brought out the smoky, tangy flavor of the burger. Not only did it jump-start my appetite, it was pure euphoria. So with a burg in one hand and a blend in the other, I blissed out for twenty minutes on my patio with my cat. Yes, I forgot to mention Liam. Whenever I spark a joint he soon appears.
Oh and in case you were wondering, the burger joint was The Dog House PDX on Division. No, sadly I will not receive any free burgs for this.
More food + bud combos to come soon…
