While wandering around the LA Cannabis Cup, I stumbled on a corner booth laden with row after row of vibrant gummy treats. Personally, I happen to be addicted to gummy anything, so my attention was caught. Sliding through the crowd, I concluded to take a closer look.
They were selling C02 infused edibles from MediZen. I decided upon the California Apples, assuming with some sarcasm that they would taste like going to Oak Glen, California, to the apple farms. In truth, they were nothing more than the candies I used to get from the nickel candy shop down the street growing up–non-medicated, of course. These little disks come in sour green and sweet red apple, and now there is a grown up version infused with what the packaging calls “Standard MMJ Extract”. They were a very soft and fresh edible, bursting with either a sweet Red Delicious or a slightly sour Granny Smith apple taste. A rich gummy treat, there was some lingering bitterness from the cannabis.
Each package contains approximately 300 mg of THC. This makes for 20 mg each candy. Using smaller candies as the edible made for an incredibly variable medicating experience. I had total control and could use fewer or more sours to fine tune my medicating. I got three complete dosings of 100 mg. Even those I was able to spread out, by eating the candies two at a time at intervals throughout the work day.
I experienced a body dominant high that manifested first in the neck and limbs. There wasn’t much in head or eyes, and I found psychosomatic effects to be minimal. This made for an effective respite from joint and muscle pain during work, when I couldn’t be too impaired. Although there was noticeable body relief, there was no couch lock at my doses. Instead it was a mellow and relaxing way to ease aches and soreness. A soothing and unwinding edible, it was also useful for anti-anxiety as well. I’ve seen comparable edibles with less THC and higher price points elsewhere in the OC. Instead, grab some of MediZen’s products and get more for less.
