From Incredibles, these spicy cinnamon mints, with 2mg of THC in each piece are, as the microdosed name implies, a low dose edible with calming effects. They come 100 pieces to a package, for a total of 200mg THC. They also come in a medical dose of 500mg in a package, with each mint being 5mg, so be sure to check the package before consuming.
Product and Taste
These mints come in a small round plastic container with a screw top lid. They almost fill the container so they are much less over-packaged than other edibles. They were easy to open and should be easy for folks with limited hand strength. It’s the classic “push down and turn” lid and it doesn’t require a lot of strength to get them open, a blessing for folks with arthritis or other similar hand mobility restrictions. They are small round tablets, so they’re very convenient and portable.
There are no allergens listed on the hidden label (you have to peel the label back to read the nutrition information and ingredients). They contain no dairy or other animal products so they are suitable for vegetarians and vegans.
These are strongly flavored with cinnamon, almost an Altoids-type strength. They call them Fire Mints for a reason! If you don’t care for cinnamon you would not like these. At my normal dose they even gave me a very small stomach ache from the cinnamon, likely because of what else was in my stomach, but be aware if you are sensitive to cinnamon or have an easily upset stomach.
These are a great cannabis edible for folks new to edibles, because you can start with one for a 2mg dose of THC to see how it effects you. If that goes well, next time try 4mg then another time 6mg. See how they work with your system and tolerance. Always start low and go slow.
Like all edibles, I try a smaller dose when I’m not familiar with the product. For these I tried three the first time, for a dose of 6mg, since my usual dose is 10mg. I felt mildly relaxed but nothing much else. The next time I tried four, for a dose of 8mg.
At 8mg I definitely felt the anti-anxiety and calming effects. I was pleasantly surprised that they were not sleep inducing, as many edibles with relaxing/ Indica-type effects can produce couch- lock or sleepiness. Sometimes you want that, but these focus on the calming without making me tired.
For those times you want the calming effects without the heavy body, these are a great low dose cannabis edible. For folks who need more than 10mg or 20mg of THC, they are not the best choice. Taking 25 of these for a 50mg dose would not be fun unless you can never get enough cinnamon!
