Wana Watermelon Cannabis Gummies Review

by Ruth

One of the first edibles I tried years ago were cannabis gummies. They were familiar sounding and I didn’t really know what else to try.

Wana Gummies WatermelonThat was a while ago. Here I am today reviewing Wana Watermelon Gummies. It feels like old times. They come in a container of 10 pieces (20 mg each). One gummy works out to cost $2.00. This edible doesn’t say of it is Indica or Sativa and is not strain specific.

I do not like the taste of these gummies. I’ve had Wana’s mixed flavor gummies and the watermelon ones are really the best. It tastes very medicinal. Then it gets bitter.

Although I took a little more than my usual dose, the high was not too strong. It took about 45 minutes to have any noticeable effects. This was more “up” like a sativa buzz. I was able to accomplish several tasks. Focusing was very easy. The high lasted 3 hours and I didn’t have the munchies.

The edibles industry is growing with all types of amazing products. Wana Gummies are a safe bet, but I urge you to talk with your favorite budtender and ask for their recommendations and read our reviews for honest feedback.

Like Ruth, I don’t enjoy the taste of these gummies. Its’ okay but just generic with the bitter aftertaste. I also don’t find them very strong. Twice I took a 10mg dose, which is my usual dose and felt practically nothing. I tried boosting them with 2.5mg of another gummy but still almost no effect. It was like taking nothing at all, which felt like a waste of money.

Between the bad taste and the weak, non-specific effects, I can’t recommend these gummies.

Papa & Barkley’s THC, CBD Cannabis Transdermal Patch Review

By Alton & Ruth

We have not had great experiences with Papa&Barkley’s transdermal patches – see our review of them here. As we always want to give products the benefit of the doubt, Alton tried a different formulation and documented the effects throughout a day.

Morning

Papa & Barkley Transdermal THC CBD Patch showing discoloration and seepage

Papa & Barkley Patch showing discoloration and seepage

9:10 am – After a shower, applied isopropyl alcohol to the inside wrist. Opened the patch container. Noticed discoloration and “seeping” of the ingredients from inside the patch to the patch surface, which shows up as discolored brown areas . I tried wiping off the sticky area but they just pill and clump, the stickiness won’t wipe off. I notices the strong smell of camphor that is usual with this brand of transdermal patch. I set a timer to help document effects.

9:25am – I begin to feel some irritation on my skin, partly the menthol and camphor but also an uncomfortable slight stinging sensation.

9:50am – I feel some impacts of the THC in my sinuses and somewhat in my body. I feel very little pain relief. The stinging sensation where the patch is on my skin continues, a little more irritating but not so painful I want to remove it.

10:05am – feeling more of the THC effect, stronger “high” feeling in my muscles, slightly spacey head. Very mild pain relief, as if I took a dose of ibuprofen.

10:50am – Effect has plateaued, been steady for about the last 30 minutes. From the effects I’m experiencing I think the THC in this batch might be a Sativa-dominant hybrid, as I feel the head-focused effects more than any body effects. The heady effects include heightened senses, especially sight and smell, some calming, anti-anxiety effects and a mild sense of well being. There were also some mild relaxing body effects.

Afternoon

12:20pm – Effects stayed pretty consistent over the last two hours. Went for a nice long walk with the dog and didn’t feel too tired or lethargic, energy stayed pretty steady. Consistent irritating feeling where the patch is.

1:21pm – After lunch, the effects decreased noticeably. Instead of a tired, nap-oriented feeling it is more like a fading of the effects. Still experiencing some relaxing effects and ability to concentrate is still good but the energy and head effects have diminished. Stinging on skin at patch site remains as does very strong unpleasant smell of menthol and camphor.

2:00pm – With the effects almost gone and the stinging on the skin continuing, I removed the patch and cleaned the area with alcohol. Left a pink/red patch on my skin from the irritation.

Conclusion

While the patches are effective, the drawbacks of the leaky patch plus the irritation to my nose and my skin turns me off from these patches. I have friends who are less sensitive to the smell and the skin irritation that use them to manage pain and inflammation. My preference is still for Mary’s Medicinals patches, I hope they come to California soon!
