The last time I visited my favorite dispensary, my wonderful budtender with the day-glo yellow hair grabbed a Coda Coffee & Doughnuts bar to show me. She pointed out that this company has a former Godiva Chocolatier making their edibles. “It’s amazing.” So I bought it as well as the Coda White Chocolate Cream & Crumble bar as well.
The medicinal-grade bar was expensive. For 300mg of THC I paid $30.00. The bar is divided into ten 30mg pieces. That’s $3.00 per 10 mg. They are also available in 100mg bars.
You can certainly taste the quality of this product. The chocolate is creamy and smooth. The coffee they put in the bar is delicious not bitter at all. Coda used just enough cinnamon so as not to overwhelm the balance. And it’s the light use of cinnamon that remained as an after-taste.
The Coda Coffee & Doughnuts bar is advertised as a breakfast edible. It’s perfect in the morning!
It takes approximately 50 minutes to feel the effects. It’s a strong, heady buzz. I was able to be productive and keep moving consistently. This wasn’t a jittery feeling, but more of an up high. I had the munchies with this edible, so stock up on healthy snacks for yourself!
The effects lasted over 3 hours. Even though Coda Coffee and Doughnuts bar is not strain specific, it was much more like a Sativa high; heady, productive, energizing. And it’s one of the best tasting edibles on the market!
This edible is unique for its flavor. The chocolate, toasted milk and coffee flavors are well balanced. The coating of cinnamon sugar on the bottom slowly melts in the mouth and gives the same taste as a cinnamon sugar coated doughnut.
For the Cream and Crumble, a wonderfully smooth lemon flavor combines deliciously with white chocolate. The spiced crumble adds some depth to the flavor and texture to the mix.
The effect feels like a hybrid, with Sativa effects being dominant without an “over-hyped” feeling. I agree with Ruth that these produce a strong buzz, so much so I was concerned I had taken the wrong dosage, but I had not it is just nice and strong. I increased my intake of liquids and ate some carbs to mitigate it feeling too strong. It is a focused, energetic effect, a little spacey but very functional. Fortunately it responds well to eating, so if you feel it is too strong, eat something and the effect will be reduced. About 20 minutes after I had lunch I felt the effects were reduced, but still very present.
I experienced heightened senses, including the munchies since food tasted pretty amazing. Be aware that because of this, anything like mosquito bites, rashes or other skin irritations could be enhanced as well. I had a two bites that needed regular applications of aloe anti-itch to keep them from bothering me.
Something that tastes very good, provides a strong effect and produces the effects I enjoy with few that I don’t, it’s a winning combination. They are expensive, so they will be a treat for me and not something I’d use everyday. Coda bars definitely deserve a place in my medicine cabinet for those days when I want a special treat that is delicious and strong.
