Dabba Mint Cannabis Chocolate Review

Dabba Mint Choc Front

Dabba Mint Chocolate bars come in Sativa, Indica and Hybrid formulas. According to their website, there is a 100mg version of the Sativa and Indica and a 200mg version of the Hybrid. I had a 200mg version of the Sativa, so either the website is wrong or we got an older product that they don’t make anymore.

This is another product we find very hard to open. While that is good child proofing, it makes it a pain to keep in the original box, so once you get it out the first time, keep it in a sandwich bag or something to avoid using the packaging.

This is another edible with what could be for some a dangerously high dosing. The entire bar is 200 mg of THC and it says there are 5 servings, which means each piece of chocolate has 40mg of THC. Since the standard dosing we use as a guide is 10mg of THC, this means that someone who is new to edibles could easily overdose by eating one whole piece. We strongly recommend cutting up each of the five servings into four pieces, so that you have pieces with 10mg each to use.

The chocolate flavor is average, somewhere around a Hershey bar flavor, but with a strong mint flavor. If you don’t like mint this is not the bar for you, as the mint flavor lingers a long time after the chocolate dissolves. I like mint so I don’t find it unpleasant or too strong of a mint flavor. Also the mint flavor helps mask any “mediciny” flavor that some edibles with high THC content have.

After breaking one of the five serving pieces into four, I took one piece or approximately 10mg. I took mine in the late mid afternoon, on a mostly empty stomach and with some caffeine. Within an hour I was experiencing all of the effects I would expect from a strong Sativa edible – energy and focus, a slight reduction in coordination and heightened senses. I didn’t feel any of the heavy head, couch lock or body relaxing effects I can experience with hybrid or Indica edibles. For my usual 10mg dose, I found the effects very strong, equal or greater than my go-to Sativa edible On The Rise.

I found them good for micro-dosing, where taking one-third of a small piece, equal to around 3mg, gave a similar effect to having a cup of coffee – a slight lift in energy and focus but nothing too strong.

I hate their website, which is cute for a desktop viewing, but does not work well on mobile devices. Also it does not seem responsive or compliant with accessibility practices for people with disabilities.

The company hasn’t updated their website since 2018 and there is very little information on it, so it’s unclear if they are still operating.

Level ProTab Sativa Cannabis Tablets Review

Level ProTab Sativa tablets are strain-specific cannabis in pill form. Each of the different Level products is formulated for specific effects. Because they are strain-specific, you can have a good idea of what types of effects you are likely to experience. Level’s seven products and the six strains behind them are:

Sativa:

SPARK is Jack Herer
CONNECT is Sour Diesel

Hybrid:
ELEVATE is Blue Dream

Indica:
FLOAT is Sour Red Hindu Kush in the cartridge and UK Cheese in the Pod
DISSOLVE is a proprietary blend of terpenes

CBD:
REMEDY 1:1 is Sour Dream
REMEDY 3:1 is Blue Dream

Dosing

Approach these Level ProTabs with caution, these are for experienced users only because they are so strong.

Instead of the usual 10mg per piece with edibles, Level ProTab pills each have 25mg of thc. The tablets are scored to make it easier to cut them in half. Even then you would have a 12.5mg dose, which is quite high for some people. A person who does not have much experience with edibles who took one of these pills would likely not have a good experience.

LEVEL PROTABS SATIVA Cannabis THC ProTabs

Alton’s Take:

I am a very experienced user and 10 mg is my usual dose. I never try a new cannabis edible or drinkable at my full dose. I always try a 5mg portion and wait two hours, to gauge the effects. I have a pill cutter so I was able to cut the Protabs in half, to start with a 6.25mg dose, the closest I could come with these pills to my usual test dose. I experienced some mild effects, similar to what I would expect from a 5mg dose of a mild edible.

The effects from the test dose were some increased focus without much increase in energy. I noticed my senses were slightly heightened. I didn’t notice much in the way of physical effects, apart from a slight tensing of the jaw and neck that I often experience as part of the effect of some Sativa edibles, similar to other stimulants like a caffeine buzz. The effects wore off after about 4 hours. From the test dose I had some idea of the effects to expect and I was comfortable with increasing the dose the next time.

For the next test I did one half of the Protab, so approximately a 12.5mg dose. I headed out for a walk on the beach with the dog. I had some caffeine and took water with me to stay hydrated. It took longer than most edibles I’ve tried for the effects to kick in, even though I was active, close to the 2 hour mark. Be aware that these tablets make take longer for you to feel the impact, so wait a full two hours before taking more.

I didn’t feel the energy boost or the uplift in mood I enjoy with other Sativa edibles. I felt the focus and the alertness pretty strongly. It was the opposite of groggy. At one point I was able to concentrate hard enough that I could see through time. Or so it seemed.

One enjoyable effect of the larger dose was the super-senses. The colors were amazing and watching the ocean waves sparkle in the sunlight was very beautiful. Tastes and smells were also heightened, so the smell of the ocean and the the taste of water were even sweeter than usual.

The effects lasted almost a full 6 hours, although they did fade a bit after I ate lunch.

If you need to concentrate for an extended period or have trouble focusing, this might be a good choice for you. I love the impact these have on the senses and I missed the emotional uplift and more euphoric-type feelings I get from other edibles.

I’ve had mixed experience with tablets. I don’t know if it is the processing or the formulation, but they effect me differently than cannabis infused food or beverages. Be aware that cannabis has the ability to produce opposite (or bidirectional) effects in different people, with different strains, and at different dosages, so always start slow.

Ruth’s Take:

I was super excited to try Level ProTab Sativa tablets. I usually take a larger dose of THC (between 40-50 mgs) so pills that have 25 mg per dose are perfect for me.

I took 50 mgs and waited to experience the effects. After an hour an fifteen minutes I started to feel a tingly, body high. My anxiety dropped slightly and I felt calm with a small buzz. I waited for the high to heighten. But, the tingly feeling was it. I didn’t get ‘stoned’ merely a body high and a sense of relaxation. Which is great, but surprising for a Sativa strain product. After two hours the body high disappeared without notice. However, I was calm and relaxed the rest of the evening.

I love that Level ProTab Sativa tablets are higher dosages of THC. But, it was strange for a Sativa strain to be calming. (Makes me wonder if their Indica is super relaxing or is going to get me moving quickly.)

I give Level ProTab Sativa tablets a mixed review. It’s more like an Indica in its calming effects. I haven’t taken 50 mg of a Sativa edible and felt anxieties lessen. More often Sativa hypes me up. The dosage is great. But, I was expecting more than the slight body high.

If you are looking for a very strong, medical level thc product, these high dose pills are worth a try.
