Peanut Butter Truffle Brownie

Brownies are hard to do right. The gooey texture—somewhere between fudge and cake—proves hard to perfect, especially in an edible packaged for a dispensary. Alpha Medicinals teamed up with Electric Chocolates on this exemplary $15 Peanut Butter Truffle Brownie, available at Emerald Crossings in San Jose. Sealed in plastic, this large brownie smelled enticing, and was crunchy and gooey like a brownie should be, with crumbly chocolate chips. It tasted distinctly herbaceous, then very sweet, with lots of cocoa, followed by the peanut butter followed by more of that “green” taste. That’s because each 8- to 10-dose Peanut Butter Truffle Brownie, contains 120 milligrams of THC. Extremely potent, cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy use such edibles to treat pain and nausea. Others find relief and rest from fibromyalgia and other chronic, neuropathic pain. One tough brownie.
