I Made THC Distillate Popcorn with Soul D’licious Infused Seasonings… And People Freaking LOVED IT!
It’s Summer time… my favorite time of the year. Parties, dancing, camping. It’s the best. So combine all those things and what do you get? Well, Burning Man. But it was June and I had no clue that 10 weeks later, I would actually be at the 2021 “Not Burning Man” celebration with 20,000+ other diehard party people. So flash back to early June and it was time for our anual visit to the desert. It was time for Juneplaya!
Juneplaya is a semi-private party (not particularly advartised) except within certain circles. An alternative to the Fourth of Juplaya celebration which has attracted a bit too much attention from powerhungry law enforcement over the past few years. As a result of consistent harrasment from local authorities who have nothing better to do than bother campers listening to music in the middle of nowhere, a certain group of us decided to take our experience elsewhere, and host the event at a different time.
As Juneplaya is Burneresque event, there was a lot to do and a lot of fun to be had. And what better place to test our a delicious and innovative new THC product on the masses. Enter Soul D’licious Infused seasonings — a new product by craft edible producer OMG THC that allows you to turn nearly any food into savory THC-infused edibles. As I’m a spice lover, I brought a couple bags of Soul D’licious Infused Chipotle Fire Rub out with me, as I feel it pretty much goes with everything. BBQ meats, fruit, carb-rich snacks. It’s so versetile.
Making THC-Infused Chipotle Popcorn
Well it just so happened that I came upon a literal pallet of snacks right before heading out so I happened to have a few dozen bags of plain popcorn at my disposal. And I had never tried to make infused popcorn before, so I figured, why not give it a go? Now we’re talking BIG bags of popcorn. And each pack of Soul D’licious Infused seasonings comes in 100mg pouches, each with ten single 10mg servings.
10mg is usually a solid dose for an edible for me. But I’m a lightweight and rarely endulge. For the average frequent user, they can easily handle 20mg+. So, considering the size of the bag of popcorn (which fit tightly in a gallon zip bag, I dumped in a full pouch of the chipotle seasoning. I shook it around vigorously, ensuring the plain popcorn was now coated evenly with the delicous, flavorful THC spice blend. And then, I was ready to head out to pass it around.
I began at my camp, asking people if they’d like to try some spicy infused popcorn. Now, most people are still very new to Soul D’licious Infused. The concept of savory edibles is a foreign to most everyone. We’ve all seen counltess types of sweets and sugary cake-like edibles for the past half decade. But as far as I know, nobody else is making infused savory spice blends in Nevada. Possibly even the country, come to think of it. So with that said, every time I offered people the tasty treat, they did a double take. Sometimes I even had to explain what I was offering them three times for it to sink in. But soon, everyone got the idea. They loved the concept. And they loved the popcorn.
I reccomended half to one full handful of popcorn for them to sample and the results were positive with ever person. They loved the idea of creating savory edibles. And who wouldn’t? Not only is it a delicious way to ingest cannabis, but it’s really an industry game-changer. Infused spices open up a whole new world to experiment with cannabis cooking. And it opens up a whole new crowd to enjoy edibles who might usualy avoid them due to their sugary and high caloric and carbohydrate content.
In the same way that the seltzer wave is changing the way people drink alchol and givinig people on diets the option to keep sugar ingestion low, Soul D’licious Infused offers a similar chance to eat any food you want while still getting that great cannabis experience. You don’t have to have high calorie beer now because you can have a low sugar, low calorie beverage. And you don’t have to eat chocolates, gummies, sweet drinks, or snack cakes to enjoy edibles any more. You can sprinkle it on anything. It’s perfect for any food and any diet.
So as I said, the response the chipotle infused popcorn was 100% positive. The balance of flavor and the experience of trying something new made everyone smile. It created some confusion and some amazement. And a good number of people kept coming back for more. In fact, I had to go back 3 more times througout the weekend to make additional batches.
All in all, Soul D’licious Infused popcorn was a huge hit. And I knew it would be. Every time I bring this stuff to some kind of event with me, people are alwasys impressed. It’s an amazing produt and one that I reccomend any cannabis lover try. Whether you’re just in the mood for something new or you’re on various dietary restrictions (low carb, keto, vegetarian, diabetic), this stuff is a pretty solid addition to basically any type of food you want to consume.
If you haven’t tried it yet, you can only find it in Nevada dispensaries. And from what I’ve heard recently, word is spreading fast about it, so it’s best to call the ones that carry it before heading over to make sure they still have some in stock. Hope you give it a go and share some with your friends. Share the experience and have some fun! Bon appetit!
