JMeds Cannabis Quoobs Lozenges Review

JMeds’ “Quoobs” lozenges are cannabis-infused hard candies made in both a Sativa and an Indica formula. They come 5 lozenges to a package, each labeled with the tested potency per serving. The testing sample we used had a total of 36.5mg of THC in the package. These are potent edibles.

Dosing & Flavor

The dosing label on the package indicates that there are 7.3 mg of THC and .23 mg of CBD per serving. JMeds uses the whole plant extration method, making their cannabis edibles potent. I usually take a 10mg dose of edibles, yet this 7.3 mg dose gave me effects similar to a higher dose. So use these with caution if you are sensitive to thc. Even if you are experienced, know that a smaller dose of JMeds lozenges might be plenty.

Ingredients are primarily natural except for the artificial food coloring. The ingredients list includes cane sugar, cornsyrup, water, cannabis and organic flavor. A bonus for these edibles is that they don’t contain gelatin or any animal products, so they are cruelty free and an option for vegetarians and vegans. At 100 calories per serving they are not low calorie but not crazy high in calories either.

One challenge with hard candies like these is that they are difficult to cut into smaller pieces. If your preferred dose is 5mg, it is hard to break the candy into exactly half. If you decide to try this edible product, be sure you know what effects a 10mg dose of THC has on you. This is not a good choice for people who are new to edibles or trying them for the first time, since you want to start with a lower dose than 10mg until you know your tolerance. Plus these are more potent than other edibles, so as always, start low and go slow.

The flavor is a pretty generic fruit flavor that tastes mildly like strawberry. It does a good job of blending the THC cannabis oil flavor and there is no artificial aftertaste that you get with some artifically flavored edibles.

Effects

I find these to be nicely powerful, giving me a strong but not overpowering high at a dose about 70% of my normal dose. The Sativa formula does have some of the effects I expect from Sativa including focus, concentration, energy and heightened senses.

I was able to function well and get things done, I was not too spacey or dreamy to concentrate. I did not feel an uplift in mood but there was definitely a motivating energy as part of the effects I experienced.

Same with the Indica, the expected effects of a more body centered effect, relaxing and anti-anxiety.

Conclusion

I love the quality of the cannabis in JMeds. I like that I can get the effects I desire from a smaller dose than usual thanks to the way the cannabis is processed. While I am not in love with the flavor, there is nothing that puts me off and I like that there are no artificial flavors used.

These are a great choice for folks who can tolerate potent cannabis-infused edibles. If you are looking for a product that is cruelty-free, dairy free or gluten free, this is a good choice for you. Overall a very good edible product.

Green Hornet Sativa, Indica & Hybrid Cannabis Gummies Review

From CheebaChew comes Green Hornet, a line of cannabis infused gummies. It’s great that they have a Sativa specific product, so consumers know what types of effect they are likely to experience. Like most adult use edibles they come in a package of 10 pieces, each with 10mg of THC.

I found the package very difficult to open, so if you have limited mobility with your hands, arthritis or just a low boiling point, plan to get the scissors out so you can cut this bag open and store the edibles in a child-proof container that is easier to open.

Flavor – Hated It.

The Sativa gummies are Mixed fruit flavor. I am not a fan of the artificial cherry flavor that is prominent. It reminds me of cherry cough drops or that awful tasting cherry flavor some dentists use to clean your teeth. The other fruit flavors are indistinct to me, a mix of generic citrus, possibly some artificial pineapple flavor, it’s hard to tell. The dominant flavor is the cherry, which I find unappealing. It lingers as an artificial aftertaste even when the gummy dissolves. It does cover up most of the cannabis oil flavor, but I would rather taste the oil than the flavors used in this gummy.

Besides artificial flavors, these gummies contain artificial colors, carnuaba wax, and gelatin. They are free from dairy, gluten and fat, but are not all natural or vegan.

Effects

I definitely felt “stoned” with these edibles, so the strength is there. I didn’t experience most of the usual effects I expect with Sativa edibles – uplifted mood, energy and creativity. I just felt high with no impact on mood, no extra energy and without feeling especially “up”.

I found the effects to be more of a Hybrid type effect than a pure Sativa effect. It was a somewhat dreamy, spacey high. Perfect for just hanging out with friends, watching a movie or taking a bath. I was able to relax and space out. I did not have couch lock or become non functional, so it was not a heavy Indica type effect. I would not want to have to concentrate on anything while using these, I found them too spacey for that. They could be good for creative activities where you just let your mind wander. I’m not sure I would want to cook something where I had to follow a recipe as I felt too spacey for that.

I did have heightened senses and strong food cravings, aka the munchies. Food tasted great and was extra enjoyable to eat. These gummies would be great for anyone who is trying to boost their appetite. Beyond that and the stoned feeling, I did not experience much of any other effects even after repeated tests.

Conclusion

There are so many cannabis infused edible gummies on the market that have a more refined taste and effects I find more desirable, that these won’t make my regular rotation. If you are not put off by an artificial cherry/generic fruit taste and you are looking for a straight up stoned feeling, these gummies may be great for you.

I like the Cheeba Chews brand and like their original product line. I also do like very much that they make these Green Hornet thc gummies with specific Sativa, Indica, Hybrid types. The flavor and the effects are not a good match for me, but if the taste and effects sound good to you, consider giving them a try as they certainly have an impact.

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.

kanha brand cbd watermleon gummies with 95mg of cbd and 5mg of THC

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.

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.

Pearl Mini Cannabis Infused Vitamin Water Review

By Alton

Pearl Mini cannabis-infused vitamin water lets you infuse beverages or food with with a mix of THC and CBD. They call it a food and beverage “mixer”. The small vial of white liquid is made with water, vitamins, THC and CBD cannabis extracts. Each vial of the Mini contains 2.5ml (0.08 fl oz) of liquid containing 10mg of THC and 10mg of CBD.

This mixer has 0 calories, no sugar, fat or cholesterol. As of October 2018, Pearl minis are available in CA and WA, made with SoRSE, which  described by the maker Tarukino Holdings Inc. as “the first and only technology that produces entirely taste- and odor-free cannabis emulsions for infusion of medical and recreational products”.

Pearl20 should be refrigerated after opening and my dispensary keeps it refrigerated to keep it as fresh as possible.

Pearl 20 mini no insert

Taste

Pearl 20 insertThere is a cute little insert card inside the package that says “Pearl is for mixing, not drinking straight. Mix with any of your favorite food or beverages”. This product is meant to spike your choice of beverage or food, not be taken straight.

Pearl20 is meant to be mixed with something, however for purposes of testing, I did take a small taste. While the website says “no weed taste”, that was not my experience of it straight from the container. If you have ever tasted cannabis oil, that is basically what this tastes like to me, plus a bit of a vitamin taste. It is very subtle and most folks wouldnt notice the taste. Pearl20 is not a product to take on its own, like a tincture.

Once mixed into a drink or food, the taste is barely noticeable when added to strongly flavored beverages. If you are very taste sensitive you might taste it in something bland like rice, otherwise it really is practically tasteless when mixed with any but the blandest food and drink.

If you are very sensitive to tastes, it is always wise to choose your beverage carefully. This may not be the time for that delicate jasmine green tea or cucumber-infused water. Something with a stronger taste is called for with this drinkable product. Some good choices for me have been iced coffee with almond milk, a cafe latte with cocoa and/or cinnamon or a cold plant protein drink.

I didn’t try it in food, but again I would look for food with a strong flavor, not add it to anything bland.

I’ve heard that salad dressing is one of the best ways to use THC like this, so you don’t heat it and reduce effectiveness. Maybe it’s time to try that homemade lemon vinaigrette? My favorite is a ginger lime cilantro dressing, so that may be how I try it with food. I’ll post about that separately.

Effect

As I understand it, CBD helps THC work and it also inhibits THC from having its full impact. Since this is a one-to-one (1:1) ratio of THC to CBD, I found the effect not as strong as other 10mg THC products that don’t contain CBD. I do appreciate the extra impact of the CBD, helping to reduce pain caused by inflammation and other benefits.

This is another product that is not labeled with the name of any specific strain or even if the canna is used is Indica, Sativa or a hybrid. The effects were very mild for me, I would guess it was a balanced hybrid as it didn’t not make me sleepy like an Indica or make me want to dance like some Sativas. My experience has been clear-headed, slightly uplifted and also relaxed. Munchies were not too much of a problem as the mild effect was also mild in that department.

Impression

I like how portable the pearl mini is, and it can go without refrigeration for one year until it is open, so it could be a good choice if you’re looking for portability. If you are sensitive to ingesting THC or you are not sure of your tolerance, a product like this can be a good place to start. You could take half of the dose then wait 2 hours to judge the impact if you were not familiar with it. If a mild dose of THC plus some CBD effects is what you are looking for in an edible or drinkable, this could be a great fit.

Choice

I love that you can now decide what food and drinks you want to make cannabis-infused. For beverages you are not limited to the mostly soda- and beer-like drinks that are infused with cannabis, you can infuse your own recipes for ginger honey lemonade, kombucha, even your favorite mocktails!

Even though I love to cook, I have not been one to try making my own edibles. Having a convenient size like this that provides a measured dose makes me more willing to try cooking with it. I hope they make this in an Indica or Sativa version at some point, even better some strain-specific versions.

Treometry Golden Mylk Chocolate THC CBD Bar Review

By Alton

Treometry’s Golden Mylk is a Tumeric Chai Cannabis White Chocolate Bar with Ashwaghanda Extract. While I was not familiar with Ashwaghanda before, this is now one of my favorite edibles to help go to sleep and stay asleep.

Golden Mylk front

Flavor

With several competing spices, this edible struggles to find a balance among all of the flavors. The equally strong spice tastes from the tumeric, chai spices, pepper, ginger, etc. can leave the tongue a bit confused. The white chocolate flavor is very mild providing a smooth, chocolaty flavor overall. There is a slight aftertaste which is likely from the cannabis oil or the Ashwaghanda extract being in alcohol. This is a vegan chocolate, so it is missing the traditional milky, creamy chai flavor, as nothing in it replaces that taste or texture. The taste is very pleasant overall, creating a smooth spicy experience. It’s unusual to find a good tasting chocolate treat that is dairy-free, paleo friendly and gluten-free.

Dosage & Strain

The packaged portion is labeled as containing 10mg of THC and 10mg of CBD. It is scored into four squares that are easily broken into pieces of 2.5 mg for portion control – always a plus with an edible! It does not indicate if the THC is sativa, indica or some hybrid, which is a drawback. Since it does a great job promoting relaxation and sleep, it’s a good bet that it is an Indica or Indica-dominant hybrid strain.

Golden Mylk Unboxed

Ashwaghanda – what is that?

According to Examine.com and its references to 300+ scientific papers:

“Ashwagandha (Withania somnifera) is an herb used in Ayurveda medicine. Ashwagandha means ‘Smell of Horse,’ which refers to the fresh root’s distinct horsey smell, and the traditional belief that ingesting the herb will confer the strength and virility of a horse.

Ashwagandha is an adaptogen. It is supplemented primarily for its ability to prevent anxiety. Ashwagandha’s anti-anxiety effect is even synergistic with alcohol. It also shows promise for relieving insomnia and stress-induced depression.”

Despite this description, I have never tasted or smelled anything even remotely like a “horsey” smell, because this edibles uses an extract not the fresh root. I have experienced and enjoyed the anti-anxiety, relaxing effect it provides.

Golden Mylk back

Effects & Dosing

Given its anti-anxiety and insomnia relief properties, this edible is often suggested for use in helping with getting and staying asleep. Over repeated uses, I have found that it provides these effects consistently.

In my experiments I did as I always do with a new cannabis edible, I started with a small dose. I started with just one of the four pieces to gauge the effect. While it is considered a mild does at only 2.5mg THC & CBD, it did help with stress relief and relaxing. I have tried two pieces, which is half of the bar and contains 5mg THC & CBD. I experienced more pronounced anxiety relief and relaxation effects within the first forty minutes. By the end of the first hour I was nicely relaxed and ready for bed.

I have tried it several times and the effects are consistent using the 5mg dose. Either I sleep through the night or if I get up I am able to get back to sleep. I sometimes experienced a slight grogginess in the mornings, but it quickly dissipates. I went back to the 2.5mg dose for regular use, since the Ashwagandha seems to add enough extra kick to do the trick for me.

If you are just trying this for the first time, it’s likely best to only take one-fourth of the bar, wait at least one hour and preferably two hours before taking another quarter portion. As always, the effects will differ depending on other medications, your metabolism, how much you eat around the time you take it, etc.

Golden Mylk is on the short list of the products I like the best to help with relaxing, getting a good nights sleep and avoiding insomnia.
