I’ve seen the Milk n’ Cookies line of edibles in several area dispensaries in the past, but I was never drawn enough to donate for one. Something about this particular delight called to me. It could have been the red lips and the use of a seductive word like luscious. However, it was just as likely the presence of alliteration in the name and the fact that it rounded out my donation to exact change. Either way, this lemon treat was coming home with me.
To keep the family away from my medibles and an accidental dosing by someone with a sweet tooth, I tend not to keep them in the fridge at home. This can unfortunately have a negative effect on the freshness of these baked goods. This little beauty looked too delectable, so I dug into it right away. No indicators as to THC or other cannabinoid counts of the product exist on the packaging, and there was no way to know what I was in for. There was also no list of full ingredients, although there is an allergy warning, so be aware. Helpful advice on the back warns against consuming too much and tells you what to do if you do. All this can be avoided with a mg count on the label. The packaging says “Very Potent”, but I’m always up for a challenge. And like any good reviewer, I ate the entire edible slowly over an hour, with some Earl Grey tea.
The moist, doughy crust and gelatin like lemon top reminded me of a lemon meringue pie, without the meringue. There was no cannabis taste, which I appreciated. The Clinic kept it in their cooler, so it was fresh, and the plastic tub it comes in keeps it from getting smushed. My fingers became a bit greasy when I was eating it, but it was nothing a napkin or wipe on the jeans couldn’t handle. It had a nice, slightly acidic lemon taste and absolutely deliquesced in my mouth. Medicated or not, I’d grab one of these from a local bakery just for the delicacy of it.
Eaten on an empty stomach, it worked its way into an easy high within the first 20 minutes. There then came a melting in the neck and shoulders. I felt loose in the ligaments. This was followed by red eyes, and I was a bit light headed. Then the high became strong in the body. It was lazy, dreamy, but not sleepy. It was the high equivalent of laying in a sunny window. Eventually, it became almost narcotic and disconnected. The peak was intense, very indica. Body relief was superior and appreciated after a long week of work. As I came down, I had a voracious case of the munchies and sativa like happiness again. It was a broad spectrum high, starting and ending the same. For the price, if you are only interested in THC content or severity of high, I’d look on the next shelf and grab a Buddha’s Best or Bhang Bar. However, if you are interested in taste, few other companies do a lemon bar as flavorful as Milf n’ Cookies.
