How much THC can you responsibly cram into a single donut?
The Mint Dispensary, the country’s first cannabis dispensary with a full-service kitchen, has an answer: 3,000 mg — if the donut weighs six pounds.
This Friday, in celebration of National Donut Day, The Mint is going all-out on its pastries, baking a bunch of those big boys and selling them for $150 apiece at its three Valley locations: Tempe (5210 S. Priest Drive), Mesa (330 E. Southern Avenue) and north Phoenix (17036 N. Cave Creek Road).
“It’s the Homer Simpson donut — strawberry glaze with sprinkles,” says Mint co-owner Raul Molina. “We put the medicine in the frosting. And we’ll probably slide them through the pizza oven to give them a little texture and warmth before we serve it. The frosting takes it [the THC] well. It grabs the full-spectrum oil nicely.” (Obviously, these are meant to be shared.)
