Calling this a flapjack is weird. I'm also confused by the name: POWER CAKES UNLEASHED. I've never seen a cake in bondage. But then, I'm not sure I've ever seen a POWER CAKE in the wild either. Maybe they're just so badass they must be kept in captivity.
Which leads me to wonder: Where is the POWER CAKE zoo?

My wife's store won't carry marijuana-related edibles to begin with (these are indeed legal), but even if they did, the total lack of health-anything in it means you'll never see it in her store.
But not all stoners are hippies, and stoners will consume anything that even looks like a pot leaf. I looked up CBD (which this thing is "100% infused" with, though it's not clear what the 100% refers to). That's cannabidiol, which Wikipedia says no psychoactive effects.
Seeing that, I figured when the package said it "may cause drowsiness" and "do not exceed 1-2 per hour," (apparently they don't know what "do not exceed" means) it was just hype and bullshit meant to sell expensive candy t…
