This article actually started a few months ago. Felicity and I were doing some food shopping, and as per usual on shopping trips, I was a little high (makes it a lot more interesting). If I remember correctly, we were bouncing around Whole Foods, where we go occasionally for special treats, when I suddenly saw a box of Sixties!
It was technically just a box of Annie’s macaroni and cheese like we’ve been buying for years (figuring if the kids were going to eat this stuff, they might as well get it organically), but it reminded me of this groovy iced tea can I picked up after the 25th anniversary of the Woodstock festival (only 20 years ago). And peace signs, baby!
Anyway, I knew I had to get a couple of boxes of this limited-edition-looking Hippie Pasta (actual name: Annie’s Homegrown Organic Peace Pasta & Parmesan) before it disappeared, and it took me only about 420 milliseconds to think ahead to the future when I would make a batch of it with cannabutter. And that time is now.
The original recipe is quite simple as it mostly involves boiling water, but if you read the box carefully, it also talks about enhancing the flavor by adding two tablespoons of butter. So if you’re new to edibles, know you’re fairly sensitive, or otherwise want to play it safe, use only one tablespoon of cannabutter and then another tablespoon of “regular” unsalted, uncannabinized butter. And then a single, unheaped serving on a 6″ appetizer/dessert plate should be just fine for you (it got me to a quite woozy  because this particular batch is kind of old and much of the THC has degraded to CBN).
—> Please note: the recommended serving size is approximately 1/4 of what you get from making the whole box <—
If you’re a recreational user or already know you have a high tolerance, feel free to use two tablespoons of cannabutter, but still start with the same size serving. I also recommend a little pepper to help disguise the taste of the cannabis (noticeable, but not too bad, at least with the half and half method I used).
As with all edibles, keep far out of reach of children, pets, or unsuspecting adults, because you will not be able to tell this has been “dosed” by looks alone (you can see there’s no green tinge to it). If you really feel absolutely nothing after 4 hours, then next time double the dose, but don’t just keep eating this stuff otherwise, because it will definitely work! Of course, only the tie-dyed version is guaranteed to work with weed 🙂 But pretty much any mac and cheese recipe works about the same way, so stay safe and have fun!
