Kush Nuts are cannabis-coated almonds and cashews. They offer one of the few sugar-free edible choices available. There are both Sativa and Indica formulas.
We always love it when edibles indicate Sativa or Indica, even more so when they are strain specific and even better when they indicate the source so you know exactly what you are getting and from where. In this case Kush Nuts gives all of that information. In the batch we tested, the Sativa strain was Dragonfish Farm’s Red Congelese.
The rosemary and garlic flavor is very good, making these a little bit dangerous, as it would be easy to pop a handful in your mouth. Be aware that one nut is about equal to 5mg THC, so if your usual dosing is 10mg, just two nuts will provide that dose.
While these snacks are sugar free, gluten free and paleo friendly, they do use butter so they are not vegan.
Having tried these both alone and with other edibles, I find that I use them to help augment other edibles whose effects are wearing off or ones that are not as strong as I wanted. I can eat just one nut and bump my dose up by 5mg, which is perfect for increasing dosing without taking in too much at once. Just by themselves, taking my usual 10mg dose just doesn’t give me the same strong effects as other edibles. I am glad they are more mild, as they make an excellent addition to other edibles if I am not getting the strength of effect I want.
Since edibles are aided in digestion by a little bit of fat, the butter and oil as well as the fats in the nuts take care of that, so you don’t have to eat some avocado or mac and cheese to help these edibles along.
Kush Nuts are made by Wish, a California based not-for-profit collective and they are currently available only at dispensaries in the San Francisco Bay Area in California.
Wonderfully tasty, these are a great alternative to edibles with sugar and they provide a way to easily take 5mg doses.
