Incredibles Microdosed Cannabis Infused Calming Fire Mints Review

From Incredibles, these spicy cinnamon mints with 2mg of THC in each piece are, as the name implies, a low dose edible with calming effects.

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.

Dosing

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.

Effects

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. Would love to see these in a higher dose formula for folks who need more than 10 or 20mg of THC. Taking 25 of these for a 50mg dose would not be fun.

Kiva Camino Sparkling Pear CBD Cannabis Gummies Review

As with the rest of the Kiva Camino range of edibles, these gummies are not just infused with distilled THC but are formulated with natural terpenes to create specific effects.

Camino cannabis gummies come in a Social formula with a a Sparkling Pear flavor. The Social formula has 2mg of THC and 6mg of CBD per serving, for a total of 40mg THC and 120mg of CBD per package. As with the rest of the Kiva Camino range of edibles, these gummies are not just infused with distilled THC but are formulated with natural terpenes to create specific effects.

My local dispensary charges $20 for a package, making it $2.00 for each 10mg serving of THC, the same price point as the Kiva Cannabis 100mg Chocolate bars. These gummies do contain gelatin, so they are not vegetarian or vegan friendly. The bag is a standard two-handed pull apart resealable pouch. The gummies are not individually wrapped.

Dosing & Flavor

The smell from the bag is a natural and mild pear smell. Like the other Camino gummies, they have a lovely opaque appearance and a soft texture that is easy to bite through.

The flavor is a mild natural pear flavor that doesn’t have any bad aftertaste. A mild sour note gives these that sparking pear cider flavor.

As we always recommend with new edibles, try half of your usual dose before trying a full dose as you never know how strong something will effect you. The Camino Social gummies are easy to bite in half to give a 1mg THC/ 3mg CBD dose. Since I am experienced with edibles and my usual dose is 10mg of THC, I began with one piece, with 2mg THC and 6mg CBD. After having only light effects for that trial run, I then moved closer to my usual, taking two gummies for a total dose of 4mg THC and 12 mg CBD.

The 2:6 THC to CBD ration is an unusual dose profile and I think it’s a good one. Most edibles with a mix have THC to CBD ratios of 1:1, 4:1, 16:1 or higher. I experience very little effect from anything above a 14:1 CBD to THC ratio. You need a solid amount of THC to get the best out of the CBD effects I have found.

I find I need at least 10mg of CBD to have a noticeable effect. For me, CBD reduces the impact of THC, so if I take a 10mg edible with 10mg of THC and 10mg of CBD, I only get about 80% of the effect of 10mg of THC alone. I also know that THC boosts the effect of CBD, so I greatly prefer some THC with my CBD. With the Social Camino gummies, I found that the 12mg dose was a good one.

Effects

The effects I experienced were pain relief, plus the anti-inflammatory CBD properties. For aching joints, the CBD helps with that while the THC brings the pain reliving effect. I tried these on a bad headache and was pleasantly surprised when the headache was gone within 45 minutes. Same with aches and pains from yard work, I found it effective and long lasting.

Enjoyable flavor profiles and type-specific effects are exactly what I look for in an edible and Kiva’s Camino gummies do a great job on both counts.

EdiPure Cannabis Sugar Drops Hard Sweets Review

Sugar Drops Hard Sweets with 10mg of THC per serving were this week’s newest edible in my local dispensary so I had to try them! These THC candies come ten in the container.

They are the largest cannabis suckers I’ve ever had. They are approximately one inch hearts. The reason why I mention their size is if you normally take a bigger dose, let’s say 40 mg, it’s going to take a long time to consume four, one inch hearts. Trust me.

These Sugar Drops slowly dissolve into a sand paper like texture. They are not smooth as they become smaller. However, they are great tasting suckers. Sweet Drops come in many flavors like lemon and green apple.

55 minutes after finishing my Sweet Drops I started to feel a slight buzz and the edibles’ calming effects started to relax me and lower my anxiety.

The heady buzz lasted for an hour and a half. The calming and relaxing benefits lasted through the night.

Sweet Drops Hard Candy are great tasting and their soothing effects are wonderful. I recommend this edible highly, especially for anxiety relief.

Happy Chews Tropical Delight Cannabis Taffy Review

Happy Chews Tropical Delight has 10mg of THC in a taffy like edible.

Whenever I visit a new dispensary I am on the lookout for new edibles to try. I normally pass over single dose products because I take a larger dose. At this new dispensary, the edible selection was tiny, so I bought some Happy Chews plus a couple of old favorites like Cheeba Chews and Wanna Gummies.

Inside the package of Happy Chews are two 5gm pieces for taffy. Although they were differently flavored, the they tasted the same. It was a salty, medicinal flavor, not fruity at all.

After eating the 10mg, I waited. And waited. I waited an hour and a half. The dose was too small for me to see any effects. Perhaps for someone who can use smaller doses, these edibles could be more useful.

So, from what I experienced, they taste odd and had no effects at all, it was kind of disappointing. I wouldn’t buy these again and I wouldn’t recommend them.

Canna Vita Botanicals Corner Stones Cannabis Candies Review

Canna Vita Botanicals makes a variety of cannabis infused candies that are like chocolate squares.

They have ten different flavors, some available in CBD formulas. The candy squares come in ten individually wrapped packages to a bag, each squares has 10mg of THC (or CBD for those formulas).

These contain milk and tree nuts (almonds) so they are not suitable for vegans or those with nut allergies. They also contain palm oil, which is a concern for some folks due to the environmental impact of that ingredient. They also contain Whey and they don’t indicate if it is gluten-free whey protein or another form of whey, so they may not be gluten-free.

The package is easy to open with the classic tear across strip common to many resealable bags. The individual packages are not marked or labeled in any way, a concern if they get separated from their bag as there is no way to tell flavor, potency or formula if you were to mix up the plain bags. Keep the individuals with the “mother” bag to avoid confusion. The individual bags are also easy to open, which is great. Keep these away from pets and children as they are easy to get into.

Canna Vita Botanicals Corner Stones Cannabis Infused flavored candies, two bags one of Raspberry White Chocolate flavor and one Mint Milk Chocolate flavor

Taste

Tried the Raspberry white chocolate flavor. It was a pretty generic flavor, neither gourmet nor totally artificial. They do use artificial flavors and you can tell, as there is an artificiality to the raspberry flavor as it’s mixed with sweet almond oil. There is something slighty off and a little chalky overall about the taste of these chocolate candies. They finish pretty smooth with the white chocolate flavor you’d expect. They taste fine but aren’t as gourmet as some of the other infused chocolates on the market. No noticeable THC oil taste, a big plus for folks who don’t like that taste.

Effects

The budtender where I purchased these recommended them becaus I said I preferred Sativa-type effects. He said that folks who liked Cornerstones used them during the day and so they didn’t create a sedating effect.

None of the CornerStones products I saw have any indication of Sativa or Indica or what strain is used in the cannabis extract. I greatly prefer some indication of what effects I can expect based on the profile of the THC, but there is no such indication.

I did find the effects to be okay for daytime. I didn’t feel sedated or have a heavy head. Focus was the main effect I experienced. Some energy but not a lot and no noticeable uplift in mood that I find with some cannabis edibles. In waves it was like a caffeine rush, with that slightly hyped feeling after drinking strong coffee. They definitely are potent, with strong effects felt at my usual dose of 10mg. Long lasting too, as the effects linger for almost 5 hours.

For a functional, focused and long-relasting experience, Corner Stones deliver. No exotic flavors or ingredients but a solid cannabis edible suitable for daytime or socializing.

These are made and sold in the state of Washington only as of 2019.

Kanha Cannabis Infused Sativa Cherry Gummies Review

Kanha cannabis infused Sativa THC gummies contain the usual 10mg dose of THC per gummy. There are 10 pieces for a package total of 100mg THC.

Kanha gummies are made with gelatin, so they are not vegetarian or vegan friendly. They are gluten-free and contain no food allergens like dairy, nuts or soy. Each piece has 23 calories so the whole bag sets you back 230 calories.

Taste & Effects

The smell from the package is a generic cherry smell. Each gummy is covered in a fine sugar coating that provides an initial sweet taste. Once that disappears, there is an artificial cherry taste, mixed with a slight cannabis oil taste. Like other Kanha gummies I’ve tried, they are artificial tasting but perfectly edible. I don’t like cherry flavor to begin with, and I don’t like artificial flavors, but these have a soft enough flavor that they taste like other cherry gummy candies.

Kanha Cannabis Infused Sativa Cherry Gummies

Kanha gummies are robust, taking a good five minutes to dissolve in the mouth. As with all new edibles, I took half of my usual dose the first time to judge how strong they are. My usual dose is 10mg of THC, so I started with one half of a gummy, with 5mg THC. I took it first one evening at home. I didn’t feel much of an effect, even after 2 1/2 hours. I tried again the next day at the full 10 mg dose. I could feel a slight uplift effect, But I did not experience the energy boost, creative charge or the focus I experience with other sativa edibles.

Kanha Cannabis Infused Sativa Cherry Gummies

I usually find 10mg of THC is a good dose for me, but for many folks 5mg gives them the effects they want. I tried these again several times at my usual dose and just didn’t get the effects that I wanted. It may be the strain or the hybrid that went into making the cannabis oil or this could’ve just been a mild batch. Either way these are great for people who are sensitive to THC or who get the effects they want from a lower dose.

Always start low and go slow with edibles and judge the impact for yourself, as we all react a little differently.

Wrap Up

I love it when edibles are labeled as Sativa or Indica to give folks a better idea of the effects to expect. Kanha Sativa THC Cherry gummies are a good choice. While I find the flavor just okay, some folks love cherry. Overall a good choice if you are looking for mild effects in a Sativa THC gummy edible.
