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!

Wana Cannabis Hot Cocoa Review

By Alton

Wana Hot CocoaI cannot recommend this product and warn against it as potentially dangerous.

Regardless of flavor or potency, this is one of my least favorite edibles when it comes to packaging. There is no indication if the cannabis used is Indica or Sativa, never mind what strain it is or what farm it came from. Worst of all there is NO INDICATION OF DOSING!

While the packaging says that the whole thing contains 200mg of THC, it does not even give a recommendation such as “One tablespoon equals Xmg of THC” or “suggested dose is one teaspoon”. That creates a dangerous guessing game, where yours truly is expected to do math to get stoned. Fail!

What is scary is that on the nutritional facts label, it says that “1 serving = 1 package, 1 pieces per package, 200mg THC per piece”. Again, a person who does not know what they are doing could take that to mean that they should make up cocoa using the whole bag and as much milk as it takes, then drink the whole thing. Disaster! Never do that!

I understand that you can divide the total amount of THC by the weight, but few folks know how many teaspoons or tablespoons are in a gram, never mind how many are in an ounce, and who wants a product that requires you to do math just to have some hot chocolate?

Wana Hot Cocoa Back

Cannabis hot chocolate sounds fantastic, but I am loath to potentially waste half a day or more and possibly have unpleasant effects or to little effect because I have to guess at the dosing for this product.

Jeers to the makers of this product, Mountain High Products Wana brand, for not providing any of the most basic information to help people know how to use their product and what effects to expect. It’s even more frustrating when you see in the image that they make sure to include their social media contest details, but not the dosing information.

I may have to resort to dividing the contents into 10 equal piles so I could guess each pile might have 20mg in it, then I could try to divide each of the piles into two equal halfs so I could get to my preferred dose of 10mg. Oh wait, not only do I need to do math for this, I also need to buy a scale so I can weigh everything out and then I need to buy ten tiny plastic bags or containers to hold the doses once I have divided them up.

Stay away from products that don’t have clear labels, that let you easily take specific doses and easily divide doses to control your intake.

Taste: who knows, too scary

Strength: wish I knew

Kikoko Cannabis Infused Organic Teas Review

By Alton

Kikiko has a line of four tasty teas that deliver various combinations of THC, CBD and CBN. Each one is formulated to deliver specific effects, as their names indicate: Tranquili-Tea, Positivi-Tea, Sympa-Tea and Sensuali-Tea.

Kikoko TeaTranquili-Tea is for relaxing and to help  you sleep, with 5mg of CBN and 3mg of THC. Positivi-Tea is for mood lifting and pain relieving effects with 10mg THC and 5 mg CBD. Sympa-Tea is for pain management and anxiety relief with 3mg of THC and 20mg of CBD. Sensuali-Tea is described as being “for passion and play” on the website, with 7mg of THC.

Kikoko uses organic ingredients and high quality cannabis in their products, so they are a premium product. This creates a price point per dose that is higher than the average edible or beverage. I am frugal so I usually re-use the teabag once. The label clearly says that there is no increase in potency after one minute and that these are single use teabags, but they have enough good flavors that they make a nice second cup of tea even if it doesn’t deliver any cannabis effects.

Tranquili-Tea

Tranquili Tea KikokoThe Tranquili-Tea works very well. About 45 minutes after a cup in the evening I start to feel very relaxed, after an hour I usually feel like heading to bed. I am able to fall asleep easily and stay asleep. If I do get up it is not hard to get back to sleep. I sometimes feel a little something different in the morning, but too slight to call it a hangover, let’s call it a fuzziness that dissipates quickly. I especially love the tastes of peppermint, camomile, lemon myrtle and licorice root that come across without a medicinal taste. I had a friend who has gone through cans and cans of these as he has trouble sleeping and they work like a charm for him.

Ruth is a tea drinker and really likes the taste of Tranquli-Tea. It’s THC dose is low, but she definitely felt the calming effects of the Indica cannabis. She would surely recommend their use as part of an evening wind down routine.

Positivi-Tea

Positivi-Tea KikokoPositivi-Tea has the most THC of any of the Kikoko teas at 10mg. Due to that dosage, this tea has the strongest THC flavor of any of the teas we have tried. It is still barely noticeable and does not make the tea taste bad or medicinal. You have to like mint flavors if you want to like this tea as it has both peppermint and spearmint in it. Ruth is not a fan of peppermint, so this is not a taste she likes. Alton has fond memories of having tried teas in Amsterdam, so he was excited to try this.

While we usually take some caffeine with our edibles, the green tea in this product provides a good amount of caffeine to help boost the effect. Instead of having an edible with breakfast, Alton had this tea along with a medium sized breakfast. Started to feel the effects in a mild way in about an hour, which is longer than usual. Everyone is different and reacts differently to different products. Be aware that these may take longer to have the effects felt than other edibles/drinkables, so be patient when waiting for the effects.

After two hours Alton was only feeling a mild effect, not what he usually expects from a 10mg dose. The effect was noticeable, just weak. So many things effect how we respond on different days like the type and amount of food in our system. Whatever the reason, after two hours he felt he wanted a stronger effect so he augmented it with Mary’s Medicinals THC Transdermal Pen for a boost. The boost helped temporarily but soon he was back to only a mild effect. His experience is that this product is good for people who want a mild effect from a 10mg dose. It isn’t strong enough for him to use without boosting it with something else.

We will review the other two products in a separate post in the near future.
