Go Energy Chocolate Beans by 1906Read More
Who doesn’t need a little boost every now and then? These bite-sized balls are just the thing when you need a little pick me up. Each chocolate covered coffee bean is dosed with a pleasant mix of five milligrams THC and five milligrams CBD, incorporating the benefits of both cannabinoids with a slight boost of caffeine. The light dosage means you can dial it for the exact experience you want, and the uplifting effect of the combination is great for the start of a busy day. I’ve found that five milligrams is just about the right amount of THC to keep me energized and happy without being stoned and unfocused, so one of these is all I really need. But if you want to crank it up further, these are tasty enough that you won’t mind having a few more. There’s very little hash taste, just smooth chocolate and the slight grittiness of the coffee bean. If you’re not a fan of coffee these might not be for you, but if you’re looking to add some pep to your day, look no further.
Red Licorice Bites (Microdosed) by incrediblesRead More
Incredibles has been killing the chocolate game for a while, now they are doing the same with their gummies. Each flavor is better than the last. These red licorice bites are so delicious it was truly hard to not eat the whole box in one sitting. If you love red licorice as much as I do, I would advise you to also grab some Red Vines to eat after you take your preferred dose of these gummies, because you will definitely want to eat more. The good news on that front is that they are microdosed; so even though I ate three gummies, I only consumed 15 milligrams. The effects kicked in after about 25 minutes, I was feeling happy and relaxed. I was able to drift off to sleep relatively easily, which is not a minor victory for me, and I slept through the night like a champ. I will definitely be buying these regularly. They come in 100-milligram packs for adult-use consumers and 300-milligram packs for medical consumers. Check them out at iloveincredibles.com.
Josh Blue's Blue Dream Cherry Sucker by Mountain High SuckersRead More
Josh Blue is Colorado’s comedy superstar. The season four winner of Last Comic Standing, the prolific comic has made appearances all over the place, from Mind of Mencia to The Ellen DeGeneres Show. He’s also a resident of Colorado with a well-documented fondness for weed, so it only seems natural that Blue would lend his celebrity status to a cannabis product sold in the state where he resides. Mountain High Suckers’ line of Josh Blue’s Dream suckers sticks with the play on words, infusing every lollipop with ethanol-extracted Blue Dream. There are three flavors available, cherry, watermelon and blueberry, and I opted to give the first option a try. Though a little on the cough syrupy side with slight undertones of hash, the suckers are great to absentmindedly slurp throughout an afternoon. I popped one in at the end of a day at the office and was nicely toasted by the time I got home, feeling energized and slightly silly, which is what I would imagine Blue would want. www.mountainhighsuckers.com
Zootblast 10mg Energy Shot by ZootsRead More
Zoots brownie bites are so good I wanted to try something else in their product line. Their 10-milligram energy shot was a natural choice. The flavor is intense, like other energy shots you’ve tried. Derived from yerba mate and guarana, each bottle contains as much caffeine as a cup of espresso, about 70 milligrams. This drink also contains lemon balm that is said to maintain energy levels and mental clarity. The package recommends you only consume half of the shot but I drank the whole thing. This, in hindsight, was a bad choice on my part. Effects kicked in about 45 minutes after I drank the shot, a little longer than usual for me but not by too much. The energy effects were great, I felt energized and alert. That lasted for a couple of hours, but then the THC took over and I fell asleep — hard. I proceeded to wake up every 30 minutes or so in a panic. I am hesitant to blame the drink for this though, since I hadn’t gotten much rest the night before. I would definitely buy Zootblast again, but next time I will stick to the recommendation and only drink half. www.zootology.com
Mixed Berry Fruit Snacks by Sweet GrassRead More
Flavored using only natural ingredients, these gummies won’t smack you in the face with a flavor that screams, “THIS IS WHAT FRUIT TASTES LIKE!” Rather, these berry gummies have a more subtle, almost earthy taste. They’re not overly sweet in order to mask an overwhelming hash taste, just a subdued taste of berry in a chewy, manageable bite. At just five milligrams per gummy, there’s not a lot of hash taste for the natural flavoring to overcome. The light dosage might be off -putting for some veteran edible eaters, but it’s great for the inexperienced or light weights like myself, offering an easily scalable experience. I found one was enough to get me energized and uplifted without feeling noticeably stoned, with full effects taking hold in about an hour and a half. These are a good option for those trying to take it slow, those who just want a slight pick me up during the day without becoming impaired, or those who want to avoid the sometimes-overwhelming taste of artificial flavoring agents. www.sweetgrasskitchen.com
Cream & Crumble 100mg by CODA SignatureRead More
reviewed by Monocle Man
Coda’s line of chocolate truffles are as fancy as they are delightful, so the bar was set pretty high before I tried the Cream & Crumble chocolate bar. While it looks like a bar of high-quality white chocolate at first glance, it is so much more. The depth of flavor hidden in the chocolate is an unexpected and welcome surprise, especially since it was totally absent of any hashy flavor or aftertaste. The bar is made with tart white chocolate, spiced crumble and lemon — reminiscent of a lemon meringue pie. Each square is a strong 10 milligrams; I say “strong” because I ate a square and subsequently passed out halfway through a movie. I proceeded to sprawl out over my entire bed in a deep sleep and awoke at 6 a.m. to find my husband curled up on a tiny sliver of mattress that I so generously left for him. I frequently take edibles at night to help me sleep and this one did the trick for sure. Simply put, the Cream & Crumble bar is delicious and I would definitely
recommend it. www.codasignature.com
Pumpkin Pie 10 mg - by Sweet Grass KitchenRead More
Sweet Grass Kitchen is a Denver cannabis bakery specializing in the use of cannabutter to infuse their delightful baked goodies. Pumpkin pie season is in high gear over at Sweet Grass Kitchen. They take great care, just like grandma does, by hand pressing the golden cookie crust into each tin. Yes! Cookie crust! This helps keep the pie crust texture we are all use to, without the potential mushy crust at the bottom of the pie. If you ask me the cookie crust is a vast improvement over the traditional flake pastry crust, all pumpkin pies should be made this way.
Mile Higher Mint Chocolate Bar by Incredibles, 500mgRead More
reviewed by Monocle Man
As the legal marijuana industry develops, certain ideas and possibilities that would not have been considered five years ago are a reality today. Incredibles edibles are a perfect example of such circumstances. The idea of edibles, their archaic and somewhat ritualistic creation, comes from a very dark era of cannabis. With legalization in full swing, brands and ideas that were only spoken of before are now proven, million-dollar companies. At the forefront of the movement is — you guessed it — Incredibles. This company has been the vanguard of edible creation in areas such as taste, potency, patient needs, appeal, and marketing. The years of awards and proven sales may have created the first Coke-a-Cola of the marijuana industry. A proven brand with consistency that looks to be here for many years to come.
Let’s look at their newest creation, the mile higher 500! This is actually the third installment of the mint chocolate bar from Incredibles. The original Mile High bar contained 175 mg active THC. Then the Mile Higher came around containing 300 mg. Now the 500! Oh the absolutely delicious minty sweet chocolate horror. As far as patients are concerned — this product is only for medical dispensaries because of its higher dosage — the need for relaxation and pain relief are still met completely. After consuming some of the bar I can guarantee that same incredible feeling will still sing through you. As always, the taste and texture were on point for a smooth, chocolaty taste up front with a cool mint on the backside of the pallet.
The biggest thing that should be taken from this review is this: this company has now produced the same bar three different times with the potency increasing each time; yet the taste, texture, and needs of the consumer were consistently met every time. That’s the mark of a champion that wants to be around for a long time. iloveincredibles.com
White Delight Cookies by Love’s Oven, 200mg, IndicaRead More
reviewed by Hazy Cakes
Based on the rave review from a friend, I decided to give Love’s Oven’s White Delight Cookies a try. I have been experiencing some pain lately and since loading up the body with THC is never a bad idea, I decided to treat myself to a new edible. I chose the indica variety because I wanted that deep body high, instead of that cerebral sativa affect. The cookies are packaged in a cool squeeze-to-open container. The contents of the container total 200mg, making each individually wrapped cookie 20mg.
The White Delight Cookies are made up of white chocolate chips, macadamia nuts and simple, pronounceable ingredients. The medicated part of the cookie is made with heat-activated Grand Valley Purple Kush cannabutter. They have a nice crunchy consistency, a sweet, nutty flavor finished off with a noticeable but slight taste of cannabis on the backside. I ate one, waited a while and decided I definitely needed more because I wasn’t feeling it enough.
After eating the second cookie, I felt the effects almost immediately. As I sat on the couch doing some late night work, I could feel that the two cookies combined were working against me actually getting anything done. My eyes felt heavy as did my entire body and the thought of going and lying in bed was as thrilling as Christmas morning. I slept like a rock and even felt a bit high in the morning, but nothing some coffee couldn’t shake off. I love how many cookies I still have left after eating two, and the fact that they are individually wrapped means they will be fresh for me for next time. There are a few different flavors, coming in both sativa and indica. I can’t wait to try them all. Visit them at www.lovesoven.com to learn more.
