Peanut Butter and Fruity Pebbles Bud Delight edible review

Standard

Image

I received this Bud Delight from Diamond Grove for being a first time patient there.  It was a tiny little bite sized goody, and although I got it as a sample, they have them listed for $2 on Weedmaps.  There was no mg count listed on the package, but judging by the size and price, it can’t be more than 25 mg of THC.

First of all, this is one of the tastiest snacks I’ve had in some time.  I wasn’t sure what to expect when I bit into it.  And its vague packaging didn’t help.  On first examination, it is a bit bigger than a golf ball.  The chocolate coating was rolled in fruity pebbles: but what was inside?  I poured a glass of milk and prepared to find out.  After biting into it, I was delighted when I discovered a whipped peanut butter center.  The crunch of the cereal, juxtaposed against the softness of the center, made for an interesting texture balance and, overall,  a tasty bon bon.

Although I just worked this edible into my daily medicating regimen in my home office, it is small and convenient enough to bring just about anywhere for quick use on the run.  It is clearly no more than a single dose, even for those with low tolerance.  I experienced a nice mild high, mostly physical, as nerve and joint pain relief.  There were some relaxation and sedation effects also, helping marginally with anxiety.

While I found the potency to simply be too low, I can see this edible working well for either light relief of minor pain, or as a base high to add to with another medicating technique.  For the price point they are perfect low dose edibles, and you could always take home a handful if you are looking for something stronger.

Milf n’ Cookies Luscious Lemon edible review

Standard

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.

Auntie Dolores 100 Bite triple chocolate brownie bite medical edible review

Standard

Auntie Dolores medible products are regrettably unavailable at my usual dispensaries in Orange County.  Because of this, I have had to wait until the recent Los Angeles Cannabis Cup in San Bernardino to sample these delectable sweets.  I had some trouble locating their booth, tucked away as it was along the outside row, but I’m sure glad I finally did.  The staff working the Cup booth were personable and eager to help me find the best medicated edibles.

The 100 mg brownie bite from Auntie Dolores is the perfect strength single dose when looking for a strong, lasting medication.  I felt comfortable using this all natural product, knowing it was made with only the purest ingredients.  I settled in with my brownie bite and a steaming hot cup of coffee, looking to unwind after a long week.  I found the small, round treat to be a bit dry and crumbly–stale, but not entirely unenjoyable.  It was incredibly chocolaty, with only the slightest notion of a cannabis taste–not bad considering it is the first ingredient.  This trace hint of bitter herbal flavor blended well with the chocolate and left me with a fudgy, decadent aftertaste.

On a mostly empty stomach, the high began after only half an hour and was all smiles.  There was a certain haziness, which created a dreamlike perception, perfect for stress relief and fighting depression.  This disconnect helps to escape triggers, even if just for a few hours.  This head high is mirrored by a buzzing, electric body high.  While pain relief isn’t as powerful as some CBD heavy products on the market, it works if you are looking for a complementing edible that will offer mixed benefits.  After a floating, giggly high, I was left heavy and with drooping eyes.  Eaten after a light dinner, this little bite-sized edible lifted me up for an anxiety free and mellow evening, before dropping me back down for a deep, invigorating night’s sleep.
