THE MINT DISPENSARY
The Mint Dispensary is celebrating this National Donut Day by offering stoned citizens in Arizona a once-in-a-lifetime super doughnut with enough THC to take you to the moon and back. The Homer Simpson Donut is 25 cm wide, 12 cm tall and weighs in at a whopping 2.7 kg. The $150 mega donut is drenched in a cannabis-infused strawberry glaze that contains 3000mg THC and topped with rainbow sprinkles. To put that figure into perspective, most edibles recipes recommend between 50 and 70mg THC per serving. That is enough doughnut for at least 40 stoners!
Raul Molina, co-owner of The Mint says; “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.”
The Mint, founded in 2016, is an affordable, patient-centric cannabis dispensary with the largest medical marijuana facility in the state of Arizona. The full-service kitchen offers a wide array of medicated marijuana munchies to address the needs of patients with illnesses like cancer, epilepsy and Alzheimer’s disease.
