ZootDrops Cannabis Infused Concentrate – Lemon Flavored Indica Relaxation Blend “Kick Back”

By Ruth:

I really enjoy Zoots edibles, they are easy to enjoy on the go, they have great flavors and they produce an amazing, uplifting high.

When I visited my local dispensary the budtender quickly showed me another Zoots item in their line of cannabis infused products, Zoots Premium Cannabis Infused Concentrates- Kick Back, lemon flavored in Indica.

ZootDropsThe Lemon Relaxation Blend ZootDrops are sugar free, vegan, gluten free and contain no artificial colors, flavors or preservatives. They contain 100mg THC per bottle and include a child-resistant measuring cap.

The instructions say that one capful (1/2 teaspoon) is a 5 mg dose of THC. You can mix Zoots concentrates with tea, lemonade, soda.

The Indica Concentrate looks like cloudy lemon juice. The cap is similar to the top of a Visine bottle. Very easy to measure dosing. (Rinse off the cap after pouring, I think it would get very sticky.)

I tried it straight, no mixer to get a taste of the product by itself. It had the distinct taste of bottled lemon juice with a strong medicinal flavor. I mixed it in lemonade and was unable to detect any medicinal taste.

Zoots is very potent, so I took a smaller than regular dose. Normally I use between n 40-50 mg of THC. I only used 30mg with Zoots Cannabis Infused Kick Back Concentrate and was highly buzzed very consistently.

ZootDrops Relaxation Kick BackIt can take up to two hours to feel the effects of their concentrates. So be patient. Don’t up your dose because you don’t think it’s working. So, plan accordingly time-wise.

After 70 minutes, I began to have a light buzz. Then my head got dizzy in the most enjoyable way. Even though this is Indica, I didn’t feel lethargic. Like the Zoots nuggets, this was a very up, happy high.

I was slightly sedated and my anxiety was lessened. Stress seemed to disappear. “This is great stuff!”, I kept saying.

The high lasted 2 hours. There weren’t any munchies from this concentrate. When I tried this Concentrate again, I felt the same euphoric buzz. It was calming and uplifting at the same time. The second time I tried Zoots Cannabis Infused Kick Back Concentrate the high lasted a little over 2 hours.

Zoots Premium Cannabis Infused Concentrate is really convenient, just mix with your favorite drink.

I recommend Kick Back from Zoots. The high is euphoric and consistent. The dosing is simple and I have never had a better glass of lemonade!

Halflit & Moonlit Cannabis-infused suckers and lollipops

by Alton

Half Lit is a line of hard candies and lollipops. The lollipop includes a seed in the stick that you can plant to grow cannabis if you are so inclined. All of the products are Organic, Vegan, Non-GMO, Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, Nut-Free, Soy-Free, and Artificial Dye-Free. They do not indicate the type or strain of cannabis used to make the candies.

Flavor

I tried the purple colored Moonlit hard candy. It tasted sweet but with no other particular flavor – I was expecting grape or something to match the color. Instead they taste like sugar water, which is a missed opportunity. Who doesn’t want some delicious flavor with their edible? The package lists the flavors as Watermelon Wonderland, Lit Lemonade, Lunar Lavender, Calming Caramel Açaí, Pineapple Paradise, and Hot Mama Mango. I still have no idea what flavor I had.

Dosage

As with all new edibles, I like to start with half of my usual does of 10mg. You never know how potent an edible will be. When edibles like these don’t indicate what strain is used or even if the cannabis used was Sativa or Indica, you might be hoping for an uplift and creativity but you get couch-lock or fall asleep. That is why I always prefer to know either the type or strain of cannabis in my edibles. Since it is very difficult to cut hard candies in half, I just waited until about half it had dissolved, then put the rest in a small glass dish. I would recommend doing the same with the lollipop if it’s your first time trying it.

I had no noticeably different effects than I would expect from a mild edible made with hybrid strains. I experienced no creative uplift or relaxation or euphoria. It was pretty “m’eh”.

While the seed in the stick is a novelty, it isn’t compelling enough to persuade me to buy this edible over others. I may try other flavors as perhaps I just got a flavor that doesn’t come through well. My experience of no great effects and no exciting taste makes this something I can’t really recommend.

Zendo Cannabis Infused Almonds Review

ZENDO EDIBLES Almondsby Alton

I was given a sample size of Zendo Cannabis infused almonds. The small package contained 2 almonds and the package said approximately 3 mg per almond. These almonds were named as the best edible of 2017 by High Times. They are all natural and gluten free. Zendo also makes infused coconut oil and peanut butter.

I prefer it when edibles tell me what strain of cannabis was used to make the edible, or at least what type of cannabis (Indica or Sativa or dominant hybrid). The coconut oil and peanut butter are both labeled as being made with “Hybrid Strains” without saying if those strains are sativa- or indica- dominant or indicating what strains they are using. I could find nothing on their website that indicates what type or strain is used for the almonds.

Taste & Effect

They come in two flavors – Honey Cocoa & Spicy Sea Salt. I had the spicy sea salt and I appreciated the spiciness since I love heat. The almonds had a dark colored coating. Neither the sample packaging nor the website say what the ingredients are, which is not helpful for folks with allergies or who are trying to avoid certain ingredients.

The almonds effected me the same way I would expect a 6mg dose to. My usual dose is 10mg so this had me feeling a mild buzz, with surprisingly strong munchies for such an otherwise mild relaxed feeling. I didn’t find much energy, creativity or uplifted mood from it, just a low level buzz. Fortunately it did not give too much of the effects I expect from Indica strains, like foggy head or couch lock.

Overall I was not very impressed with either the effect or the amount of information given regarding strain used and ingredients. The taste was fine but most people do not choose edibles on taste alone.
