Kanha Cannabis Watermelon CBD Gummies Review

Kanha Cannabis infused watermelon cbd gummies contain a 20:1 ration of CBD to THC. Each piece has 9.5mg CBD and 0.5mg THC. There are 10 pieces making the package total 5mg THC and 95mg CBD.

These gummies are made with gelatin, so not vegetarian or vegan friendly, but they are gluten-free. They contain no food allergens like dairy, nuts or soy. Each piece has 23 calories so the whole bag only sets you back 230 calories.

Taste & Effects

The smell from the package is a very sour, citric acid smell that is so strong I struggled to find the watermelon smell. Each gummy is covered in a fine sugar coating that provides an initial sweet taste. Once that disappears, there is a medicinal and artificial taste I can’t put my finger on mixed in with the cannabis oil taste. That taste lasts for quite a while, transitioning to more of a fake cherry taste than a watermelon taste, I found. Not the most pleasant tasting cbd gummy I have had, but not the worst by a long shot.

The gummy was robust, taking a good five minutes to dissolve in the mouth. Normally that would be a good thing, but with the odd sour citric acid plus the cherry taste, it is not as delicious as I would like it to be. I am willing to overlook a less-than-wonderful taste when the edible delivers the effects I like and this is a good example.

I took this one evening after coming home with some minor aches and pains to see how one does would impact my muscle soreness. I have had good results with CBD in the past for muscle aches, and I found these to be nicely effective.

With only 0.5mg of THC, I did not experience any of the effects from taking edibles that are higher in THC. Even when I take an edible with 5mg of THC, which is half my usual dose, I usually get some of the psychoactive THC effects. I found the Kanha gummies to have none of those effects. THC does work together with CBD, so I like that this cbd gummy product has a small amount of THC because it helps activate the CBD. I find these work better than products that only contain CBD. If you are looking for a cbd gummy edible with a good dose of CBD and and a small amount of THC to boost the CBD effects, this edible is a good choice.

I felt pain relief within an hour, my muscle soreness retreating into the background and making me much more comfortable. This is the kind of pain relief I look for in a CBD gummy product. Many products contain only CBD and no THC, which I find much less effective.

Another time after a few hours of hard work in the yard my back and legs were aching, so I tried taking one gummy. The pain was more pronounced than other times and one gummy wasn’t enough to make a dent. After 90 minutes with no impact, I took half of a second gummy. After another hour, there was a noticeable effect, reducing my pain and letting me relax in comfort.

The package suggests taking between 1 and 3 doses. Since even 3 doses would have only 1.5mg of THC, you would have to be very sensitive to THC to feel any psychoactive effects. I can’t tell any difference between 2mg and 4mg of THC and rarely feel anything until I’m in the 5-7mg range, depending on the strength of the product.

Wrap Up

For a healthy dose of pain relief that includes a little THC to boost the effects, Kanha CBD gummies are a good choice. I don’t like the flavor very much, so I think there is room for improvement there, but overall a good choice if you are looking for the anti-inflammatory and other effects of a CBD gummy edible.

Sensi Chew Insomnia Cannabis THC & CBD Chocolate Caramels Review

Sensi Chew’s Insomnia product has 10 doses of cannabis-infused chocolate caramels. Each dose has 10mg of THC plus 2mg of melatonin to aid in getting to sleep and staying asleep. The Insomnia Plus product has no THC, just CBD and melatonin.

If you are sensitive to the effects of melatonin and of Indica strains of cannabis, these products pack a punch. Even the description on the website says “Those who are new to or have a low tolerance with medicated edibles should proceed slowly” – listen to that advice.

Taste & Ingredients

Like the other Sensi Chew products, this edible is a chocolate caramel confection that does a good job of hiding the THC taste. If you are not a fan of the taste of cannabis oil, this is good product for you to try, as the taste is on the mild side. The Plus product has no THC so it has no cannabis taste. This edible is usually described as having a “tootsie-roll” type flavor and Sensi Chews have a similar consistency as those treats.

I like that Sensi Chew has a short ingredient list and that everything is something your grandmother might use in making treats (except maybe the cannabis extract, depending on your grandmother). They are not full of chemicals and fillers. They do contain dairy so they are not an option for those who avoid dairy, be it for allergy, by choice, because of being a vegan and cruelty-free or any other reason.

Effects & Dosing

Usually within 30-45 minutes of taking one of these I begin to feel sleepy. I am sensitive to melatonin and each dose has 2mg of it per dose along with either 10mg of THC or CBD. Once the effects begin to set in, I am able to get ready for bed and I last about another 30 minutes before my eyes are too heavy to keep open. I would not take more than my usual does of one 10mg THC piece as I find the effects are strong enough.

Sometimes I do experience something of a groggy feeling in the morning, which I don’t like. I experience that with several other types of sleep aids, so I think it is the melatonin. I prefer to wake up refreshed and not groggy. I am fortunate that insomnia is only an occasional issue so I don’t usual use a sleep aid. Folks who are more tolerant of melatonin, might not have the grogginess. I don’t have it every time, but close to half the time when I use products like this.

These are a solid sleep aid and I like that they are not knock-out pills. While I was sleeping the electricity went out and woke me up, but I was able to get back to sleep – until it came back on and woke me up again. Still I was able to go back to sleep.

I didn’t have dreams that were any more bizarre than usual and I didn’t sleep eat or sleep drive like some sleeping pills make you do.

Wrap Up

If you have problems getting to sleep or staying asleep, I would recommend giving Sensi Chew Insomnia or Plus formulas a try. If you find you experience the grogginess, experiment with half or a quarter of a 10mg dose, to see if that reduces the impact.

Medicine Box Cannabis Infused Goo Drops Chocolate Truffles Review

medicine box truffles boxes

Medicine Box makes one of my favorite edibles, the nutty and potent medicine bar. They also make these wonderful chocolate truffles in various flavors and strains.

All of the Medicine Box truffles are made with the Indica-dominant Goo strain of cannabis. This strain is primarily meant to help with relaxing, easing anxiety and helping with sleep. Leafly describes Goo as “an 80% indica strain that mixes a sweet-tasting Blueberry with the hashy, resinous Hindu Kush. Deep physical relaxation is coupled with slight cerebral energy”.

Flavor & Dosing

We tried the Peanut Butter Banana Goo truffle. It has a good chocolate flavor and some crunchy nut pieces for a nice texture. The cannabis taste is not overwhelming, it mixes nicely with the peanut buttery flavor. I wish the banana flavor was stronger, but that is a hard flavor to make strong without going artificial.

Each box contains 2 pieces of chocolate, each wrapped in foil. Each piece is 20mg and my usual dose is 10mg. With new edibles we always start out with half our usual dose, so I started with 5mg. I definitely noticed some relaxation and a body effect like I would expect from an Indica strain like Goo. After I was satisfied that 5mg wasn’t too strong, the next time I used 10mg.

Effects

When I first took a full 10mg dose I was already a little tired and within an hour I fell asleep on the couch, which is unusual for me. I woke an hour later a little groggy but was able to give the dog a spin in the yard and get ready for bed. I was glad when I got in bed and went to sleep in short order. I found these great for help with getting asleep and staying asleep. In the morning I feel refreshed and not groggy.

I am sensitive to Indica effects naturally, so these Goo truffles may be effecting me in a stronger way than someone with higher tolerance. They are also nicely strong, so do approach using them with caution and start slow. Try a quarter of one piece and wait 2 hours to see what the effects are for you.

I love the Medicine Bar products because they are strain specific and that lets me know exactly what to expect from my edibles – something you don’t get with generic “hybrid” edibles. These are in regular rotation for me.

A Cannabis Christmas

This is the most wonderful time of the year! I love the holidays! Now that pot is legal in my state, I’ve created a new, cannabis tradition for the elves on my nice list who partake in enjoying marijuana that live here in the Rocky Mountains- stockings stuffed with edibles from my favorite Colorado companies.

At the bottom of the stocking I’ve put a container of Love’s Oven S’more Brownies. The perfect treat with hot cocoa! These bite size cannabis edibles provide an upbeat, energetic high.

This year I discovered Zoots products. I love them and highly recommend them. So, I am putting as many of their items in everybody’s stocking as possible. Zoots Rocks, in the hard to find caramel flavor, is a crowd favorite. These suckers are the best out there for a happy high filled with energy. My local dispensary is now offering Zootbites Snickerdoodle Cookies. They have 5mg per cookie and come in packs of two. I haven’t tried these yet, but I know that everyone will love them. I splurged and also picked up ZootsDrops High Energy Blend Yipee Ki-Yay Mandarin Lime Drops. These wonderful drops provide liquid doses of THC into the beverage of your choice. They would be delicious in hot, spiced, apple cider.

Finally, I am THRILLED to purchase Pot-Rox for this year’s stockings. Pot-Rox are Pop Rocks with THC. They come in 10mg pouches in Tropical Twist and Berry Blast flavors. After a year reviewing so many gummy edibles, it’s exciting to see fun, different edibles!

The stockings are ready and filled with yummy products. They are all set to give out. And I know that everyone will be psyched to get their treats.

I hope your holiday is filled with joy and some new edibles too!

Here’s to 2019! May it be a happy, healthy year for all!

Suck It Strawberry Lemonade Cannabis 2.5mg Low Dose Sweets to Suck Review

Alton’s review of Suck It! Sweets to Suck inspired me to sample this cannabis edible! Since his and my preferred THC dosing are so different (I use a much higher dose than Alton), I thought users with a higher tolerance would appreciate a review on a small THC dose product like this, which contains 2.5mg of THC per serving.

Canyon Suck It Strawberry Lemonade Low Dose Cannabis Infused Sweets Round Package

Suck It Strawberry Lemonade Sweets to Suck is a great option for folks that are brand new to edibles or are micro dosing enthusiasts. The reason that I suggest these groups is becuase each square piece of candy only has 2.5mg of THC which is one quarter of the standard dose of 10mg .

I take a larger dose of THC, usually about 40mg. So, I would need to ingest 16 pieces of Suck It Strawberry Lemonade Sweets to Suck to get high. That’s crazy. So, I ate 4 pieces equaling 10mg and tried micro dosing.

The Sweets to Suck are very heavy on the Strawberry flavor and very light on the lemonade side. I couldn’t pick up any medicinal taste. As far as suckers go, they are pleasant to eat and their size (smaller than a half an inch) was convenient to ingest multiple pieces at the same time.

I waited for a half an hour to feel any sign of effects. Nothing. Then I waited for an additional forty five minutes. I concentrated and really focused on feeling any effects that might be starting to evolve. I searched for a slight buzz. No luck.

I was unsuccessful at micro dosing. I never felt any effects. My mood was left unchanged. My energy was not altered. Nothing.

If you are an active cannabis user, Suck It Strawberry Lemonade Sweets to Suck is probably too small a dose to feel any effects, unless you eat a whole mouthful at a time. However, this is a great product for anyone who can micro dose successfully. New edible consumers can easily try small doses and not worry about overdoing it.

These suckers were unsuccessful for me. But, because of their discreet convenience, taste and small doses, I do recommend Suck It Strawberry Lemonade Sweets to Suck for beginners just staring to enjoy edibles.

Growing Kitchen Heavenly Honey Lemon Indica Cannabis Chill Pills Review

There are tons of edibles in dispensaries. It’s amazing and overwhelming at the same time.

When enjoying cannabis on the go, I look for a discrete and compact suckers. Something small that has a kick. I want something that I can shove in my purse that won’t spill or make a mess. I’ve found it’s easiest to carry suckers.

I have two favorite kind: Zoots Rocks and The Growing Kitchen-Honey Lemon Chill Pills.

growing kitchen honey lemon chill pills cannabis infused Indica

I prefer Indica edibles. Chill Pills come in a delicious Honey Lemon in Indica. It’s in a flat, cardboard container that encompasses a blister pack of suckers. After futzing around with the child protection, I started enjoying Chill Pills.

Each 10mg dose is approximately one third the size of a traditional gum drop. The great tasting Indica candy is a clear yellow. Growing Kitchen uses local honey and you can really taste the quality. I couldn’t detect a medicinal flavor at all. It has a light, lemon tea taste that I really enjoyed. (Some edible companies are solely focused on the effects, leaving flavors that are undesirable.)

After an hour and ten minutes, I started to feel the effects ramp up. I was beginning to relax; tension was evaporating. I was slowing down physically and finding my spot on the couch.

Chill Pills gave me dry mouth and a small case of the munchies. So be forewarned, have your favorite, healthy drinks and snacks on hand.

With the buzz from Chill Pills, I experienced a ringing in my ears and a slight body high. A tingling sensation would come and go. My muscles relaxed. My mood elevated. The high lasted two and a half hours. It probably would’ve lasted longer if I didn’t eat during the munchies.

This edible tastes delicious and has superior calming effects. Chill Pills come in a variety of flavors: Heavenly Honey Lemon (Indica), Sublime Spearmint (Sativa) and Super CBD Blueberry. I have found their CBD is moderately helpful with joint discomfort. Chill Pills ingredients are organic, dairy free, wheat free and gluten free.

For the taste, the discretion and the effects, Growing Kitchen Chill Pills are a must have edible.
