Zoots Rocks Caramel Premium Cannabis Infused Nuggets were recommended by my budtender at my local dispensary this week. This marijuana edible comes in 5 mg of THC doses. Zoots Rocks are suckers, they’re not chewy like caramel. They’re light small, flat cough drops that taste pretty good. They have a buttery caramel flavor with just the hint of medicinal taste.
After sucking on the Zoots Rocks, I started to feel high in an hour and in another half an hour I was happily buzzed. The high was uplifting and energizing. The effects were really enjoyable. I was productive and my attitude was upbeat. I really liked these Caramels.
There are a few edibles out on the market like Highly Edibles Watermelon Pucks and Zoots Rocks Caramel Nuggets that offer a euphoric buzz. I highly recommend Zoots Rocks. They are super convenient and provide a consistent, pleasant buzz.
To me Zoots have quite a pronounced THC flavor plus some caramel taste. This isn’t a product that tries to hide the THC taste underneath artificial flavors. I am used to that flavor so I don’t find it unpleasant and it blends well with the caramel. From the website “Caramel ZootRocks are gluten free. ZootRocks are handmade from naturally sourced ingredients and contain no artificial colors, flavors or preservatives.” The caramel flavor contains dairy and is sweetened with Isomalt and Stevia.
I tried Zoots several times and initially I just found them okay. As always with new edibles, I tried half my usual dose before trying a full dose. I got almost no effect from half a dose. I tried a full dose two times and both times I didn’t feel much impact. Trusting Ruth as I do, I tried them again to see if it was just coincidence that they did not make a big impression on me at first. It’s a good reminder that, since so many things influence the effects from edibles, give them several tries with different levels of food in your system, making sure you eat something with some fat in it so the THC can bind to it, like an avocado or some nuts. I’m glad I tried again as the third time was the charm.
I agree with Ruth that these have a strong uplifting, happy effect. I was alert and able to function well, felt comfortable in social situations, enjoyed food immensely and generally felt good. The impact lasted for a good 5 hours, and even lingered in a milder way after that. I always prefer when edibles provide an indication of effects, either by labeling products as Indica or Sativa or sharing the name of the cannabis strain used in production. I’d love to know what strain or strains Zoots is using.
Overall a solid cannabis edible that is small and durable enough to bring hiking. Zoots provides a happy, uplifting and creative effect that is what you want when looking for the euphoric THC effect.
