Massachusetts-based MariMed, Inc. couldn’t have picked a better day to launch its new Bubby’s Baked brand, which aims to infuse the cannabis edibles market with ooey, gooey and chewy baked goods, than today: National Brownie Day.

It was anything but a small batch, though, for the world’s “biggest” brownie.

Containing 20,000 mg of THC and weighing 850 pounds (386 kilograms), the massive mouthful measures three feet (0.9 metres) wide and long, and 15 inches (38 cm) tall and “took a team of five people a whole day to combine all the ingredients and set it up in a massive oven,” points out LADbible .

“For reference, the average weed brownie can contain between 2.5 mg to 50 mg of THC depending on what you’re looking for in the edible,” says LADbible . “But generally speaking, around 10 mg would get you plenty high.”

As for verifying the company claim of it being the world’s largest weed brownie, Guinness World Record told MariMed that they “no longer accepts applications or creates new record titles that are related to the consumption, preparation or use of tobacco, cannabis or nicotine products,” reports Daily Star.

The actual launch of Bubby’s Baked happens today, notes a statement from the company, whose focus is to improve “the health and wellness of people using cannabinoids and cannabis products.”

Coming in brownie, chocolate chip and snickerdoodle recipes, each single-serving bite of the new brand contains five milligrams of THC. All cannabis-infused brownies under the new brand are homemade, soft and chewy, made with natural ingredients and no preservatives, are infused with precision-dosed, full-spectrum cannabis and are made from scratch in small batches.

“Bubby’s Baked fills a big hole in the edibles market that cannabis consumers crave — high-quality, delicious baked goods that stay moist and chewy,” Ryan Crandall, MariMed’s chief product officer and senior vice president of sales, says in the company statement. “For many of us, homemade brownies were our first taste of cannabis-infused edibles. Bubby’s recreates and elevates that nostalgic experience,” Crandall continues.

Looking forward, the brand is meant to be part of the company’s efforts “to build a house of brands that meets different consumer needs across a diverse range of occasions,” he adds.

The new edibles line will be available throughout Massachusetts now, MariMed reports, but Delaware and Maryland dispensaries are next up, expected to offer the goodies early in 2022.

Cannabis-related companies and causes are no strangers to going big to make their point.

In yet another baked experience, marijuana-themed sandwich shop Cheba Hut recently sent a replica of the Elon Musk’s Tesla-inspired Cybertruck, made from Rice Krispies but no THC, to another Musk company, SpaceX, in Texas.

In April of 2016, D.C. Marijuana Justice organized a “smoke-in” right in front of the White House. Toting a 51-foot-long inflatable joint replica, the protesters lit up at 4:20 p.m. in a bid to get weed’s current classification rescheduled, per CNN.

Despite recreational cannabis being legal in more than a third of U.S. states and medical marijuana being legal in the majority, weed is federally illegal. It remains a Schedule I substance defined as having “no currently accepted medical use and a high potential for abuse,” notes information from the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA).

This past October, members of a group calling themselves the “Anonymous Apes” did a re-enactment of 2001: A Space Odyssey in front of the DEA headquarters to urge the agency to relinquish its Neanderthal approach to weed.

And in late summer of 2020, the push to legalize recreational cannabis in New Jersey took to the skies in a big way, with single-engine prop planes, hired by separate organizations, towing pro-cannabis banners above south New Jersey beaches.

Early in 2021, Governor Phil Murphy signed three bills into law that decriminalized cannabis marijuana and created a pathway for the legal recreational cannabis market, according to J.D. Supra.
