Sleeping cupcakes.

Urban Daddy Boston just wrote about a cupcake from Butter Cafe & Bakery in Wapole, MA that puts you to sleep. Could be the ultimate way to beat jetlag!
How could a cupcake make you sleep? Well they ground up Valerian root (used since the Greeks in treating sleep and anxiety disorders) and added 60gm of (I assume liquid) melatonin. Thinking about making these for guests coming for a visit soon from the States… might be the perfect anecdote to the 3am jetlag munchies? Thanks to Cory for sending!

Update: My friend K.C. just pointed me to Lazy Cakes, which are basically commercially sold non-pot, but pot-like brownies. NPR just wrote about how strong they are; the recommended does is only half a cake. Apparently melatonin, valerian root, and rose hips are actually pretty strong stuff. I personally have switched from ambien to melatonin for jetlag and found that the latter works just as well…
