Super CBD Blueberry Chill Pills Review

By Ruth

Super CBD Blueberry Chill Pills were very highly recommended to me by my favorite budtender with the day glo yellow hair. She warned me that they were very strong and to take a smaller dose than usual.

Super CBD blueberry chill pills have more THC than CBD so they will give you a decent buzz.

However, the taste was so nasty and medicinal that I almost spit it out. I couldn’t find any blueberry flavor whatsoever, it was like sucking on a NYQUIL lozenge for 5 minutes.

After an hour and fifteen minutes I was able to feel a calm, full body buzz. It was strong and I was very happy that I listened to my budtender regarding a smaller dose.

As far as pain management, I felt significant relief for the bruises on my leg from falling down (not so eloquently) and complete relief of a wrist burn from making tea. I was feeling achy and sore. The pain disappeared for several hours.

I wouldn’t recommend this product because of its taste alone. It’s discreet and compact. Yes, it’s strong, but it tastes repulsive.

From Alton:

I agree that the taste isn’t great, it is sort of like eating cannabis shatter or oil. The slight berry taste just doesn’t compete well with the strong cannabis oil taste.  They are meant primarily for medical use more than getting a buzz.

Chill pills come in medical and recreational versions. Both have 10mg of THC from a hybrid strain. The medical version has 10mg of CBD in each pill, the recreational/adult use version has 5mg of CBD. They are part of a line of chill pills from The Growing Kitchen (link below).

I tried mine at the end of a day working in the garden, feel pretty sore and wanting to chill out. Within 90 minutes my muscle soreness was significantly reduced. I felt relaxed but very able to function. There was no couch-lock or heavy head effect, just a nice anti-stress and pain relief effect. Just the kind of chill out experience I was hoping for. After eating the effects were reduced and after about 3 hours I was feeling a little tired, likely a combination of just being tired plus the relaxing effects of the THC.

I was not put off by the less-than pleasant taste and if you are looking for a solid medicinal effect, this can be a great choice. As always, start with a low dose – these are potent!

Cheeba Chews Cannabis Edible Review

By Alton

Cheeba Chews come a variety of formulations, including Sativa, Indica, Hybrid and CBD. For a long time they have been referred to as the “Tootsie Roll” of edibles, as their chocolate taffy chews resemble that well known treat. Now besides chocolate they have a strawberry flavor.

Cheeba Fruit Chews SativaI took one of the 10mg servings of Cheeba Chews Strawberry flavor a little afternoon on a mostly empty stomach with some green tea to give it a caffeine boost. The taste is somewhere between a salt water taffy strawberry flavor and a Jolly Rancher super-charged strawberry flavor. I let it dissolve in my mouth under my tongue. The chew melted slowly and was smooth. I did notice a little bit of an artificial/chalky aftertaste when it was gone, but nothing too medicine tasting.

Cheeba Chew Sativa

The effects began about 20 minutes after ingestion, very mild at first. Ninety minutes later, they never got as strong as I expected. My effects were definitely on the mild side and needed some kind of boost to be what I wanted. After over 2 hours with only mild effect, I added one 5mg edible of the Kush Nuts to boost the effect and that worked well.

These are a great choice for folks who want a more mild effect than other edibles at the 10mg level. Cheeba Chews contain skim milk, whey, butter, or all three, so they are not suitable for vegans.

Kin Slips Cannabis Infused Sublingual Strips Review

by Alton & Ruth

These “slips” remind us of those Listerine strips that were so popular years ago, that allowed you to use mouth wash on the go by just dissolving the strip in your mouth. In a similar fashion, Kin Slips allow you to discretely pop a strip into your mouth and let it dissolve.

They come in three formulas – uplifting with sativa type effects (Cloud Buster), relaxing with indica effects (Nice Dream) and a CBD-rich mixture (Park Life) formula. We appreciate that they indicate the effects they are formulated to produce, as so many edibles give no indication.

Nice Dream Slips Front Face Nice Dream Slips Back

Nice Dream Slips UnboxedWhile the strips are certainly convenient and discreet, they are possibly the worst tasting edible we have ever had. Despite the attempt at flavoring, as these dissolve there is a tiny hint of flavoring but it is overpowered by an unpleasant chalky, medicinal taste. Even the flavoring tastes artificial. Even with drinking something to mask the taste, when using these before bed it is not unusual to still have the nasty aftertaste in your mouth the next morning.

We find them quite strong, part of which is likely related to taking them under the tongue. For using them to help fall asleep and stay asleep, often half of one is enough to feel the effects. Nice Dream is on our short list when we need help with sleep.

Dabba Mint Cannabis Chocolate Review

Dabba Mint Choc Front

Dabba Mint Chocolate bars come in Sativa, Indica and Hybrid formulas. According to their website, there is a 100mg version of the Sativa and Indica and a 200mg version of the Hybrid. We tried a 200mg version of the Sativa, so either the website is wrong or we got an older product that they don’t make anymore. This is another product we find very hard to open. While that is good child proofing, it makes it a pain to keep in the original box, so once you get it out the first time, keep it in a sandwich bag or something to avoid using the packaging.

Dabba Mint Choc Back

This is another edible with what could be for some a dangerously high dosing. The entire bar is 200 mg of THC and it says there are 5 servings, which means each piece of chocolate has 40mg of THC. Since the standard dosing we use as a guide is 10mg of THC, this means that someone who is new to edibles could easily overdose by eating one whole piece. We strongly recommend cutting up each of the five servings into four pieces, so that you have pieces with 10mg each to use.

The chocolate flavor is average, somewhere around a Hershey bar flavor, but with a strong mint flavor. If you don’t like mint this is not the bar for you, as the mint flavor lingers a long time after the chocolate dissolves. I like mint so I don’t find it unpleasant or too strong of a mint flavor. Also the mint flavor helps mask any “mediciny” flavor that some edibles with high THC content have.

Dabba Mint Choc Front bar

After breaking one of the five serving pieces into four, I took one piece or approximately 10mg. I took mine in the late mid afternoon, on a mostly empty stomach and with some caffeine. Within an hour I was experiencing all of the effects I would expect from a strong Sativa edible – energy and focus, a slight reduction in coordination and heightened senses. I didn’t feel any of the heavy head, couch lock or body relaxing effects I can experience with hybrid or Indica edibles. For my usual 10mg dose, I found the effects very strong, equal or greater than my go-to Sativa edible On The Rise.

I found them good for micro-dosing, where taking one-third of a small piece, equal to around 3mg, gave a similar effect to having a cup of coffee – a slight lift in energy and focus but nothing too strong.

I hate their website, which is cute for a desktop viewing, but does not work well on mobile devices. Also it does not seem responsive or compliant with accessibility practices for people with disabilities.

Coda Cannabis Chocolate THC Bars Review

By Ruth

Coda Coffee & Doughnuts Bar 300mg

Coda Coffee & Doughnuts Bar 300mg

The last time I visited my favorite dispensary, my wonderful budtender with the day-glo yellow hair grabbed a Coda Coffee and Doughnuts bar to show me. She pointed out that this company has a former Godiva Chocolatier making their edibles. “It’s amazing.” So I bought it and their White Chocolate Cream & Crumble bar as well.

The medicinal-grade bar was expensive. For 300mg of THC I paid $30.00. The bar is divided into ten 30mg pieces. That’s $3.00 per 10 mg. They are also available in 100mg bars.

You can certainly taste the quality of this product. The chocolate is creamy and smooth. The coffee they put in the bar is delicious not bitter at all. Coda used just enough cinnamon so as not to overwhelm the balance. And it’s the light use of cinnamon that remained as an after-taste.

The Coda Coffee and Doughnuts bar is advertised as a breakfast edible. It’s perfect in the morning!

It takes approximately 50 minutes to feel the effects. It’s a strong, heady buzz. I was able to be productive and keep moving consistently. This wasn’t a jittery feeling, but more of an up high. I had the munchies with this edible, so stock up on healthy snacks for yourself!

The effects lasted over 3 hours. Even though Coda Coffee and Doughnuts bar is not strain specific, it was much more like a Sativa high; heady, productive, energizing. And it’s one of the best tasting edibles on the market! Enjoy!

From Alton:

As Ruth says, this edible is unique for its flavor. The chocolate, toasted milk and coffee flavors are well balanced. The coating of cinnamon sugar on the bottom slowly melts in the mouth and gives the same taste as a cinnamon sugar coated doughnut.

For the Cream and Crumble, a wonderfully smooth lemon flavor combines deliciously with white chocolate. The spiced crumble adds some depth to the flavor and texture to the mix.

The effect feels like a hybrid, with Sativa effects being dominant without an “over-hyped” feeling. I agree with Ruth that these produce a strong buzz, so much so I was concerned I had taken the wrong dosage, but I had not it is just nice and strong. I increased my intake of liquids and ate some carbs to mitigate it feeling too strong. It is a focused, energetic effect, a little spacey but very functional. Fortunately it responds well to eating, so if you feel it is too strong, eat something and the effect will be reduced. About 20 minutes after I had lunch I felt the effects were reduced, but still very present.

I also experienced the heightened senses, including the munchies since food tasted pretty amazing. Be aware that because of this, anything like mosquito bites, rashes or other skin irritations could be enhanced as well. I had a two bites that needed regular applications of aloe anti-itch to keep them from bothering me.

Something that tastes very good, provides a strong effect and produces the effects I enjoy with few that I don’t, it’s a winning combination.  They are expensive, so they will be a treat for me and not something I’d use everyday. Coda bars definitely deserve a place in my medicine cabinet for those days when I want a special treat that is delicious and strong.
