Cannabis Edibles Cost Per 10mg THC Dose Comparison

Edibles

To understand my cost per dose of cannabis, I looked at prices for a small group of the edibles reviewed here on More Than Buds.

If you want to know what you are paying per 10mg dose, we’ve got the formula and some examples for you.

Prices are different all over, so keep your receipts and try the same comparison if you’re interested in a like-to-like comparison of what you are paying.

I used 10mg of THC or CBD as the standard unit of comparison in this example.

In the example chart below, the cost per 10mg dose varies widely from $1.00 to $10.00. This is a big difference if you are looking for a product to use often, as a thirty day supply of the $10 product costs $300. A thirty day supply of the product that costs $1.00 a day costs $30.

In this example, Kikoko tea and Lagunitas Hi-Fi Hops were the most expensive at $6 and $10 per 10mg dose respectively. SensiChews were the least expensive at $1.50 with Kushy Punch and Valhalla gummies a close second at $1.60 per 10mg dose.

Note: Prices in this example are before tax and may not reflect current pricing.

Emerald Sky 19:1 CBD:THC Gummy Licorice Review

Emerald Sky makes their North Star Cherry cannabis-infused licorice in a formula of 19:1 CBD/THC. Each serving has 9.5mg of CBD and 0.5mg of THC, for a package total of 95mg CBD and 5mg THC. They also make a 10mg Sativa and a 10mg pure CBD gummy.

While they do have a mild licorice taste, this is not licorice in the usual sense of Good & Plenty or Twizzlers. If you don’t like licorice, these likely won’t bother you because cherry, strawberry and red fruit is the much more pronounced flavor.

These CBD gummies are individually packaged, which makes it easy to take one or just a couple with you, rather than taking a whole bag like most gummies. The down side is of course that there is significantly more packaging being used, a concern when it comes to the environment.

North Star Cherry THC and CBD edibles are made with organic and non-gmo sweeteners. They do contain wheat so they are not gluten free but they are vegan and free of animal products.

Dosing

As with all edibles, it is best to start with a low dose of a new product until you know how it will effect you. For someone who is experienced with edibles and whose usual dose of thc is 10mg, the .5mg of thc might not be a concern. Some folks are sensitive to the effects of CBD and may need a smaller dose, so it’s always smart to do a test run with half a dose, wait 2 hours and notice the impact.

I often need more than a 10mg dose of CBD to impact pain or discomfort, it depends on the type of pain. For muscle aches that come from extensive yard work or sleeping in an awkward position, I find I need a higher dose. If the pain comes from inflammation, like arthritis, then around 10mg can help with the pain.

With an Emerald Sky CBD gummy, after testing lower doses I found that for stubborn muscle pain I did need two doses, which provides 20mg of CBD and 1mg THC. Even with the the double dose I did not feel any psychoactive THC effects.

I was glad that with the higher does, I didn’t have any of the Indica-tyoe THC effects you get with some 1:1 THC to CBD ratio edibles. Some edibles with equal amounts of CBD and THC use Indica-dominant strains of cannabis, which can result in relaxing, sleepy or even couch-lock effects. These CBD gummies gave me none of those undesirable effects, just the anti-inflammatory and pain relief effects I wanted.

For a dependable CBD edible in single dose packaging with little to no THC effects, Emerald Sky 19:1 CBD:THC or pure CBD Cannabis Licorice Gummies are a good choice.

Kanha 4:1 CBD:THC Cannabis Infused Peach Gummies Review

Kanha cannabis infused CBD & THC gummies contain a 4:1 ratio of CBD to THC. Each piece has 10mg CBD and 2.5mg THC. There are 10 pieces for a package total of 100mg CBD / 25mg THC.

These 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 only sets you back 230 calories.

Kanha Cannabis Infused 4:1 CBD THC Peach gummies

Taste & Effects

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

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 and up to 20mg of CBD, so I started with one half of a gummy, with 10mg CBD & 2.5mg THC. I took it first one evening at home. Within an hour I could feel the CBD start to have an effect, with aches and pains lessened plus a relaxed feeling in the muscles. I was pleasantly surprised at the impact of half of my usual dose of CBD. The extra THC really helped boost the CBD effect for me.

With 2.5mg of THC, I did not experience any of the psychoactive effects from taking higher dose THC edibles. When I take an edible with 5mg of THC, I usually get some mild psychoactive THC effects. I found the Kanha gummies to have little of those effects. In my experience, CBD lessens the impact of THC, so that I get a stronger effect from 10mg of just THC than I do when there is 10mg of THC and 10mg of CBD in a gummy. At the same time, the THC boosts the effectiveness of CBD for me.

THC does work together with CBD, so I like the ratio of CBD to THC in this gummy 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 four-to-one ratio of CBD to THC, this edible is a good choice. Many products contain only CBD and no THC, which I find much less effective.

The package suggests taking between 1 and 3 doses. Since 3 doses would have 7.5mg of THC, you would have to be careful about psychoactive effects. I usually find 10mg of THC is a good dose, but for many folks 5mg gives them the effects they want. With CBD reducing the impact of the THC effects, I can sometimes take a higher than usual amount without undesirable side effects. Always start low and go slow with edibles and judge the impact for yourself, as we all react a little differently.

Wrap Up

For a healthy dose of pain relief, Kanha 4:1 CBD:THC Peach gummies are a good choice. While I find the flavor just okay, it is not enough to prevent me from enjoying the powerful effects. Overall a good choice if you are looking for support with pain plus the anti-inflammatory and other effects of a 4:1 CBD:THC gummy edible.

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.

Note: JMeds became Canna-Soothe cannabis infused artisanal lozenges, but their website seems to no longer function so they may be out of business.

GummiCares Cannabis Gummy Sativa:AM Black Cherry Review

GummiCares makes a line of gummies that are Sativa, Indica or CBD specfic. I love that they provide specific types of products, as so many THC and CBD gummies are generic “hybrid” formulas and you don’t know what effect to expect.

GummiCares cannabis infused gummies black cherry flavor sativa:am formula 10mg dose package

GummiCares gummies single-dose pack of 10mg THC Sativa gummies has a single square gummy that is scored into four pieces, making it easy to have a microdose of 2.5mg THC. Most gumies come in 5mg or 10mg dose sizes that you have to guess to split up into smaller doses, so this is a great option if a microdose of 2.5mg is what you want. It’s also easy to take the whole thing if 10mg is your usual dose.

Consistency & Flavor

Unlike other gummies that are soft and supple, I found these gummies to be tough and pretty solid. The texture was like jello with too much gelatin in it – hard and chewy with a rubbery consistency.

GummiCares cannabis infused gummies sativa:am black cherry flavor

Back Cherry is not my favorite flavor and so I did not find the taste very pleasant. The cherry flavor is strong and mostly covers up the cannabis oil flavor, which is a plus if you don’t like the flavor of cannabis oil. I found the black cherry flavor artificial and it lingered in my mouth for a long time as an aftertaste, so I needed to drink something with a strong flavor to get rid of that taste.

The GummiCares ingredients are sugar, corn syrup, water, gelatin, citric acid, canola oil, ascorbic acid, cannabis extract, natural and artificial flavoring, as well as food colorings red 40 and blue 1. So this is not a vegetarian or vegan friendly product and it is not free from artificial flavors and colors.

Effects

As usual when trying a new gummy, always go with half of your normal dose and wait two hours to judge the effects before taking more. After taking a 5mg dose – half of my usual dose of 10mg – and having only mild effects, I knew I could try a whole dose.

I did my standard trial, which is to take the gummy on an empty stomach, then have some caffeine – usually a mocha or coffee – plus something with some fat in it for the cannabis to bind with. This way, if the effects are too strong I know I can take some CBD or eat something to reduce the effects.

I found the effects to be a stoned feeling with some energy and creativity. I didn’t experience the uplift in mood or the happy feeling I get with some Sativa edibles. This did feel like a high quality effect, not muddy or middle of the road like some lower quality edibles can be. There was a mild euphoria mixed in, with something of a spacey head effect. No Indica effects, like couch lock or feeling sleepy. I was able to enjoy getting some things done while listening to music.

The effects lasted about 3 hours and when I ate lunch that definitely had an impact, reducing the effects almost immediately. Within an hour they had worn off and I felt mildly sleepy. I was able to rally and go for a walk.

Overall this is a good mild Sativa edible that delivers the energetic and creative feelings you would expect. I have a tolerance for THC and edibles so I found these GummiCares mild, but someone with a low tolerance or who is new to edibles might find them strong. So as always, start low and go slow. I didn’t enjoy the flavor or the texture, so while I might not get these again, they are worth a try if you are looking for a Sativa edible.

Kanha Cannabis 20:1 CBD:THC Watermelon 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, but everyone is different.

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.
