At Home Baked, Baked at Home
Before I begin my review of these brownies, let me set the stage… It’s spring in the Colorado Rockies. We’ve had some lovely weather, and I have overexerted myself into intractable pain. A storm begins to move over the mountains threatening our warm weather. I’ve been pushing through the intractable pain and working with the aid of cannabis hash oil made in the Rick Simpson method, but am still aching. I watch the storm growing ever closer and begin to wish for sleep.
Then I remember a gift from Reverend Partridge. I happen to have a box of indica “At Home Baked” Brownies. The good reverend had put them into my hands as a mercy and asked me to try them. So, I hobble into the kitchen with my box of compassion to bake up some mercy.
I read the instructions on the box which are as follows:
For your At Home Baked experience you need:
A Box of At Home Baked Brownies or Blondies
a little butter or oil to grease baking pan
an 8×8 or 9×9 baking pan
a large mixing bowl
mixing spoon or whisk
- Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
- Grease 8×8 or 9×9 baking pan.
- Place dry ingredients into large mixing bowl.
- Shake oil packet then add and mix evenly (about 20 strokes)
- Add eggs one at a time and finish mixing (30 more strokes)
- Spread mixed batter into baking pan.
- Bake @ 350 Degrees until center sets Approx. 25-35min in 8×8 or 20-30min in 9×9 pan

A little goes a long way!
If you aren’t sure weather they are done or not use a toothpick and poke the middle of the mix if it is mostly clean they are done if it is covered in fudgy goodness they need a few more minuets.

About ten minutes later, they were in the oven, about a half an hour after that, they came out of the oven. I cut the brownies into 8 pieces as directed by the box. As soon as they were cool enough, I plated the brownies and some fresh strawberries and a cup of tea.
The brownie’s flavor was decadent rich chocolate on the palate with the familiar notes of cannabis in proper balance with the other flavors. It was enjoyable to eat, but so rich I would recommend you have a drink handy when you serve one to yourself or your patient. Most people would say a glass of milk, but I opted for some tea.
I was still awake and in pain an hour and a half later, however I was also capable of laughter. I had not been capable of laughing in some time. This was an improvement. Eager and hoping to achieve an end to the intractable pain shooting through my body, I plated up another brownie. Just as I began munching on the second brownie, snow began falling and I understood why I was having issue getting on top of my pain. It had to be the impending storm making it so difficult to get comfortable. In the end, I ate a nearly half a pan of brownies. I was up most of the night, but once the storm slowed and I found sleep, I did sleep for an increased duration compared with my usual sleep patterns.
Before you think this is a negative review, let me remind you of the definition of intractable:
Definition of INTRACTABLE
: not easily governed, managed, or directed <intractable problems>
: not easily manipulated or wrought<intractable metal>
: not easily relieved or cured <intractable pain>
(retrieved from: http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/intractable )
The fact that these brownies were able to make me laugh when I was in so much pain is a strong indication to me of a good product. Another Carded individual in the house was asleep within 30 minutes of eating 1 brownie.
My assessment, 10 of 10 Medicinal Leaves Awarded!
