Lazy Cakes Relaxation Brownies: Better than Space Cakes

Lazy Cakes Relaxation Brownies: Don't make any big plans.

Lazy Cakes Relaxation Brownies kicked our ass.

After trying the Drank Relaxation Beverage and finding it lacking, we had low expectations for these brownies, which are sold in head shops around the Valley (we picked ours up at It's All Goodz). But we'd heard Lazy Cakes brownies were all the rage, and since we love desserts, we figured we'd give the brownies a shot.

And boy, did the brownies shoot back.

We've tried "special" brownies and cookies, "space cakes," and just about any other marijuana edibles you can think of. But they were never a favorite medium for us -- the high takes too long in coming (you've got to digest the food first), and it's so sustained that sometimes we didn't even notice it.

Lazy Cakes Relaxation Brownies don't contain any marijuana at all, so imagine our surprise when, after eating only half of one (we shared it with a friend), both of us found ourselves passing out on the couch 45 minutes later (at around 9:30 p.m.).

Lazy Cakes: Open wide.
Initially, we thought we were just eating a brownie that wouldn't do much for us. It tasted good -- the brownies are very chewy, with a rich layer of fudge in the middle -- but we figured the flavor was the end of the experience. Sure, the label read, "May cause drowsiness," but we had our sodas and sugar cookies, so we figured we'd be able to stay up and watch at least two episodes of the original V television series on DVD.

Then, something happened. Our bodies went limp. We closed our eyes. There was yawning, then snoring. Suddenly, we were on our way to bed at 10 p.m., which is about three hours before we usually hit the sack. And then we slept for almost 12 hours.

The magic of the Lazy Cakes Relaxation Brownie is in its proprietary blend. There are two servings per brownie, and 15 mg of the blend per serving. The blend includes herbal relaxation aids like Valerian Root Extract, Rose Hips Extract, and Passion Flower, but the real kicker in this blend is the 3.9 mg of melatonin per serving (nearly 8 mg in one whole brownie).

Melatonin, as we pointed out in our blog about Drank, is a compound produced in our brains, and research has shown supplementing with it can be an effective sleep aid -- and when we say "supplementing," we're talking about a standard daily dose of about 1 mg. These brownies have nearly 8 mg of melatonin. That's what makes them so potent and effective.

We would definitely recommend Lazy Cakes Relaxation Brownies as a legal alternative to pot-infused food products, but we also encourage potential eaters to research Melatonin and any possible side effects to long-term supplementation. These things taste good and they work, but we wouldn't make a daily snack out of them. 

And we definitely advise against including them in your next school or church bake sale.

Where can you buy them?  I was directed to Amazon, which sells Easy Cakes, but not Lazy Cakes.

Snoring chin strap may the perfect solution for some people. However, if you have nasal problems, this snoring solution is obviously not best for you. Another disadvantage of using this anti-snoring device is that it is not aesthetically appealing. However, for your roommate who is unable to sleep at night because you are "sawing" the night away, the look is likely not important.

Purple Stuff, a knock-off of Drank that is sold at QT's throughout the Phoenix Metro, is the lightweight. I first had Drank in Sacramento, and it knocked me on my arse.. Thanx for mentioning where I can get Lazy Cakes, been looking for them forever out here in Phoenix/Tempe..!

 All I know is I ate a whole one not really expecting much and boy was I wrong! I'm not going to say I felt high, more like I took a valium maybe. I think next time I will only eat half as the label suggests! LOL! I still feel pretty good even after dozing on the couch for a couple hours. I can stay awake but that's about it, I'm definitely not getting up and doing anything. I used to be a major pot head but don't smoke anymore so before anyone goes there, no I don't have the tolerance I used to. I do remember what it was like and this is different, I'm sleepier but clearer headed that's why I said like a valium, but I don't think I ever just took valium I was always doing something else with it! LOL:)

 My Autistic son has been taking Melatonin since he was 2 yrs old. He's six now and takes 6mg/nightly. Without this he cannot and will not sleep. I do not think these are as dangerous as the media has indicated simply because of my experience with the use of it. Your body naturally makes Melatonin for sleep. Melatonin is secreted into the blood by the pineal gland in the brain. Individuals with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) may have lower than normal levels of melatonin. A 2008 study found that unaffected parents of individuals with ASD also have lower melatonin levels, and that the deficits were associated with low activity of the ASMT gene, which encodes the last enzyme of melatonin synthesis. Multiple small studies have demonstrated that 2 to 10 mg of melatonin may benefit children with ASD who have trouble falling asleep and/or maintaining sleep. At least one long-term study does assess effectiveness and safety in children. No serious safety concerns were noted in any of the 94 cases studied by means of a structured questionnaire for the parents. With a mean follow-up time of 3.7 years, long-term medication was effective against sleep onset problems in 88% of the cases.

There aren't any synthetic cannabinoids in this brownie. This is an "urban legend" that's been completely debunked. As the article pointed out, it has a huge amount of melatonin ... twice the amount that the FDA recommends as a sleeping aid for fully grown adults. These brownies are obviously marketed to kids. At this dosage, melatonin can lead the central nervous system to slow down and cause trouble breathing. Usually it just leaves kids nauseated.

I know most of you reading this don't care what happens to kids. Those of you who do should complain.

The unfortunate thing is your kid can buy these in a gas station. My son saw them, and of course wanted it. It is a brownie. Luckily I had already heard about them and know the dangers. Get them away from kids at least.

Hey, how much did you guys get paid for this bullshit "review" of Lazy Cakes? Now you can find them in every gas-station-"convenience"-shop across the U.S., ready to take the money from teenage morons who think they can get high by buying this crap. You should be ashamed of yourselves.

"It kicked our ass?" You share your ass with another? Does that make you half-assed? I suppose you may have meant "it kicked our asses." I'm sorry, of you provide me with a one-liner like that, I just can't help myself. Have fun, be safe.

Good review. I didn't get quite as sleepy from them,the Melitonin was quite a kick I think though. And from someone who has actually ingested a few of the JWH chemicals,it is ludacris to claim that these contain any. I won't even get started on how different the prices would be! :P People with little knowledge acting as if they are some kind of authority on the subject is nothing but counterproductive. I'll be checking in now and then,you've got a new fan!

lol OMG a whopping 3.9mg...... The melatonin I buy at sams club 300 tablets containing 3mg Melatonin and 25mg Theanine as a sleep aid for under $10. I've never had a lazy cake yet but can't see melatonin doing much of anything other than a minor sleepy effect.

I just bought and ate a whole one for $3 from a tobacco shop near my college campus and got high but I didn't pass out, you guys just can't handle your $hit lol.

It's got synthetic cannabinoids in it...the JWH chemicals. these groups of people that make these synthetic "weed" products all do the same thing. Melatonin gradually puts you to sleep, and most people can take upwards to 20mg and it still be a safe dose. This article is $hit and so are the people who wrote it.

Most smoke shops now have them on their counters. Some convenient stores do too. They look just like the picture (duh, haha) and shouldn't be that hard to find.

Wow, most of us don't care about kids? That's a pretty strong assumption. Especially considering low doses of melatonin are suggested for children whose parents don't want their kids on a myriad of pharmaceutical drugs that have many horrible side effects. Oh, almost forgot, the FDA recommends melatonin dosage now? When did that start?

Do you also submit posts like this on Red Bull reviews? (which is a REAL problem) Pull the stick out of your ass and get off your soap box. These are for adult "recreational use." If they are so obviously marketed to children, why aren't they in the Little Debbie aisle? They are up by the cigarettes, blunt papers and mini thins.

Precisely, it's a sleep aid in brownie form-two servings, therefore almost 8mg. Nearly three times the dose of your sleeping pills. You weren't being stupid and thinking this was some sort of recreational drug, now were you? Go buy some dope, bonehead.

Brian, I've found no evidence whatsoever that there are JWH compounds in Lazy Cakes. The company who manufactures them even denies it.

Also Anonymous, It's D'andrea not Dandrea see it has a comma splice in my name as well the comma is just a little higher up. I sure do love commas.

And even though I'm in my mid thirties and just an old hippie with hair down to my butt I'm not above responding to the comments in these drug articles I write. I love marijuana so what, that's why I write these, I write high all the time I have good quality articles and stuff.

Prove it, I highly doubt a writer for some online newspaper has the facilities to test a food product for complex synthetic compounds. People can lie, why do you think people sell these things? Why are they sold in head shops? They get you high, I can almost guarantee that there are synthetic cannabinoids or some sort of new mind altering substance. Valerian root and melatonin DON'T get you high

Bubba

No, they do not if they are not listed on the label. For any product to be sold in the USA, its ingredients (especially "medicinal" ones) must be listed on the label. This does not fall under "proprietary spices." Ass, duh. Duh, ass. Who the hell writes like this in public forums? Did you read the new legislation? It turns out that people shown to be abusing their oxygen privileges by posting stupid comments will have them revoked for a period of one week. I hope you can hold your breath a long time, buddy.

You're a fucking moron.... Argue with the Anonymous guy about some fucking commas. You must be really smart to know your grammar so well.

Dear Niki,

Thank you for the troll comment I try my best, Trolling is a art. However I must say your facebook does indicate you have hair down to your butt and Google says you like to steal posts from peoples twitters...how unprofessional. Sounds like you have a long way to go in the world of journalism Niki, I wish you the best of luck.

Pretty soon this will be on google forever too so really you're getting more publicity! Think of it as a friend helping a homeless person.

Sincerely,Anonymous

D'Andrea has an apostrophe, not a comma. And yes, please do message me to continue this discussion, since somebody's great detective work uncovered my PUBLIC social media profiles. Good work! I'm done discussing this here, since clearly there's a know-it-all troll lurking. I prefer to have intellectual discussions with people who have the balls (or eggs or whatever) to use their real names instead of posting idiotic B.S. under mine.

Oh, and I'm glad the Lazy Cakes brownies get you "high," dude. That explains a lot of your behavior. Cheers.

Hey Anonymous, don't you have the skills to use your real name, or did you just decide to post under mine? I would have never used a comma splice like you did ("idiot, sorry to waste your time"). I would have used a period or a semi-colon.

I'm looking forward to YOUR proof that these brownies contain JWH compounds.

Niki Dandrea

You're right! I'm a complete idiot, sorry to waste your time reading this horrible article.
