It’s a brave new marijuana-laced world, at least when it comes to food trucks: The Samich—the country’s first food truck to specialize in cannabis-infused eats—made its Denver debut in April. Owned by a Seattle-based company called MagicalButter (naturally), the Samich includes a flying, smiling, chemical-green stick of butter as its mascot. (We can’t make this stuff up.)
You’ll be able to find standard lunch fare, like PB&J and grilled cheese sandwiches and tomato soup, on the Samich’s menu, though of course, it’s important to remember that a little something extra has been added to the food.
“[The food truck] gives a good platform to educate people about how to eat with cannabis, finding out what works, what might not work,” Garyn Angel, CEO of Magical Butter, told NPR’s The Salt. “It’s a non-threatening way for people to discover if it helps them at all.”
How easy is it to overdo it on pot-infused food? (We’re asking for a friend.) Apparently, cooking with cannabis is a little easier said than done, but MagicalButter’s chef controls for potency and dosage to make sure nothing delivers “too much of a punch,” NPR reports. But as with all things, if you’re going to indulge, remember: Moderation is the name of the game.
Angel also told NPR that he’s envisioning a fleet of food trucks to go nationwide, but for now, the truck is headed back to Seattle.
