I love my regular budtenders. They are knowledgeable about everything Cannabis and especially edibles. They always point me in the direction of some amazing products.There was a NEW budtender at my local, mountain dispensary. I asked her to show me her suggestions for strain specific items and I bought a few of her picks plus some of my old favorites this week.
The first edible I tried that she pointed out was Dixie Tropic Twist Indica Pineapple Gummies. The edibles market is saturated with gummies, however, I have never seen Pineapple Gummies that were specifically Indica or Sativa. So, I was totally excited to try a less common flavor in the cannabis type that I enjoy most.
The Tropic Twist gummies are shaped like balls cut in half. They are a faint yellow color and and heavily coated with sugar. The taste was delicious with no detectable medicinal taste. I loved this gummy’s firm, chewy texture.
Dixie Tropic Twist gummies come in a container of ten 10mg pieces. I took my normal dose of 40mg.
After an hour, I felt a small, light high. Surprisingly, I was very active after taking this Indica strain edible. However, I kept on waiting for the high to get stronger. But it never did.
So the following day, I regrouped and took a larger, 50mg dose to see if I just needed a boost to my THC intake. Maybe this edible is less strong than other cannabis gummies on the market? After an hour of waiting for stronger effects I was left disappointed. Again, there was just a slight tingle of a buzz. A whisper of a high. So, I waited some more. Literally saying to myself, “Am I high?” “Is this it?” After 90 minutes, the buzz is still very, very light. “Ok, it’s the product, this is not working for me”.
After trying a second time eating a stronger dose, I’m left searching for a high to write about. All I feel is a light tingling feeling in my head and my wallet.
If you’re looking to get stoned, Dixie Tropic Twist Gummies are not for you. If you are new to edibles and want to experience a very light buzz, these pineapple gummies are perfect.
Now I’ve learned that when I am helped by an unfamiliar budtender, I will ask three questions:
1) Is it strain specific?
2) Is it strong?
3) Have you personally tried it?
That seems to cover all areas. Good luck and if you find an amazing edible, Alton and I would love to hear about!
