Canna Vita Botanicals Corner Stones Cannabis Candies Review

Canna Vita Botanicals makes a variety of cannabis infused candies that are like chocolate squares.

They have ten different flavors, some available in CBD formulas. The candy squares come in ten individually wrapped packages to a bag, each squares has 10mg of THC (or CBD for those formulas).

These contain milk and tree nuts (almonds) so they are not suitable for vegans or those with nut allergies. They also contain palm oil, which is a concern for some folks due to the environmental impact of that ingredient. They also contain Whey and they don’t indicate if it is gluten-free whey protein or another form of whey, so they may not be gluten-free.

The package is easy to open with the classic tear across strip common to many resealable bags. The individual packages are not marked or labeled in any way, a concern if they get separated from their bag as there is no way to tell flavor, potency or formula if you were to mix up the plain bags. Keep the individuals with the “mother” bag to avoid confusion. The individual bags are also easy to open, which is great. Keep these away from pets and children as they are easy to get into.

Canna Vita Botanicals Corner Stones Cannabis Infused flavored candies, two bags one of Raspberry White Chocolate flavor and one Mint Milk Chocolate flavor

Taste

Tried the Raspberry white chocolate flavor. It was a pretty generic flavor, neither gourmet nor totally artificial. They do use artificial flavors and you can tell, as there is an artificiality to the raspberry flavor as it’s mixed with sweet almond oil. There is something slighty off and a little chalky overall about the taste of these chocolate candies. They finish pretty smooth with the white chocolate flavor you’d expect. They taste fine but aren’t as gourmet as some of the other infused chocolates on the market. No noticeable THC oil taste, a big plus for folks who don’t like that taste.

Effects

The budtender where I purchased these recommended them becaus I said I preferred Sativa-type effects. He said that folks who liked Cornerstones used them during the day and so they didn’t create a sedating effect.

None of the CornerStones products I saw have any indication of Sativa or Indica or what strain is used in the cannabis extract. I greatly prefer some indication of what effects I can expect based on the profile of the THC, but there is no such indication.

I did find the effects to be okay for daytime. I didn’t feel sedated or have a heavy head. Focus was the main effect I experienced. Some energy but not a lot and no noticeable uplift in mood that I find with some cannabis edibles. In waves it was like a caffeine rush, with that slightly hyped feeling after drinking strong coffee. They definitely are potent, with strong effects felt at my usual dose of 10mg. Long lasting too, as the effects linger for almost 5 hours.

For a functional, focused and long-relasting experience, Corner Stones deliver. No exotic flavors or ingredients but a solid cannabis edible suitable for daytime or socializing.

These are made and sold in the state of Washington only as of 2019.

Mary’s Medicinals Transdermal Compound 1:1

Mary’s Medicinal Transdermal Compound has a 100mg blend of CBD, CBC and THC.

I went on a mountain drive with my husband at ended up in Silverthorne, a real ski town. Thinking that skiers have a lot of aches and pains, I thought this would be a perfect place to find effective CBD topicals. I stopped at High Country Healing and asked for suggestions on topical creams with CBD. Both of the friendly budtenders recommended Mary’s Medicinals. Although it was expensive, I bought it.

MARYS COMPOUNDThe container holds 28 grams of topical cream. It’s made with mango butter and beeswax making the compound more of a solid than a lotion. It doesn’t have a scent.

I have Dupuytren’s contracture – an arthritis – in both hands. In this situation, I am looking for pain relief, not to get high. Even though there is THC in the Compound, it won’t get you buzzed at all. I applied the product and massaged in the oils directly where I was feeling pain. After a half an hour, my hand was very soft and the Compound oils disappeared.

After 15 minutes, the palms of my hand were slightly tingly. After 30 minutes, I was almost pain free. Before I put on Mary’s Medicinals Transdermal Compound my pain level in my hand was at a 3-4, after an hour my pain level barely registered at a 1. It was enormously helpful in comparison to Motrin/Aleve. The pain relief lasted for almost three hours.

Mary’s Medicinals Transdermal Compound worked for me. I highly recommend it for anyone that is looking at CBD topicals. Although it is a little expensive at $50.00 per container in Colorado, a little goes a long way!

Cheeba Chews Cannabis Edible Review

By Alton

Cheeba Chews come a variety of formulations, including Sativa, Indica, Hybrid and CBD. For a long time they have been referred to as the “Tootsie Roll” of edibles, as their chocolate taffy chews resemble that well known treat. Now besides chocolate they have a strawberry flavor.

Cheeba Fruit Chews SativaI took one of the 10mg servings of Cheeba Chews Strawberry flavor a little afternoon on a mostly empty stomach with some green tea to give it a caffeine boost. The taste is somewhere between a salt water taffy strawberry flavor and a Jolly Rancher super-charged strawberry flavor. I let it dissolve in my mouth under my tongue. The chew melted slowly and was smooth. I did notice a little bit of an artificial/chalky aftertaste when it was gone, but nothing too medicine tasting.

Cheeba Chew Sativa

The effects began about 20 minutes after ingestion, very mild at first. Ninety minutes later, they never got as strong as I expected. My effects were definitely on the mild side and needed some kind of boost to be what I wanted. After over 2 hours with only mild effect, I added one 5mg edible of the Kush Nuts to boost the effect and that worked well.

These are a great choice for folks who want a more mild effect than other edibles at the 10mg level. Cheeba Chews contain skim milk, whey, butter, or all three, so they are not suitable for vegans.

Cheeba Chews Indica 70mg/ 100mg Review

By Ruth

I’ve been struggling to find a strong edible that doesn’t taste “weedy”. My favorite budtender recommended Cheba Chews in the 70mg pack. It comes in Sativa and Indica specific strains. I bought a couple of Indica packs and was very excited to try them.

After opening the package, I saw that there were two, 35mg doses. I eyeballed my dose to be close to 50mg and ate it.

CheebaChew CO MED 70mg IndicaThe Cheba Chew tasted exactly like a Tootsie Roll with no pot taste at all! It was pleasantly surprising. The effects were starting to be noticeable after 15 minutes. In a half an hour, I was really stoned. I was active in the beginning, but pretty quickly, I had to sit down and enjoy the buzz.

Cheba Chews gave me serious munchies. So be prepared! Have some of your favorite, healthy snacks ready before you enjoy this.

The effects started to wear off at the 3 1/2 hours mark.

I would definitely buy Cheba Chews again and I highly recommend it. Next time I visit my favorite dispensary, I’ll pick up more and try some of their Sativa strain too.

Note: This review was written in 2017. In 2019, Cheeba Chews let us know that “these  babies are 100mg medical dose now!” . That’s why the title is 70mg/100mg.

For people who need high doses due to medical conditions, prescription medication or other reasons, we advocate for the availability of high dose edibles and other cannabis medicine to all medically qualified patients everywhere.
