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.

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.

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.

Medicine Box Cannabis Infused Goo Drops Chocolate Truffles Review

medicine box truffles boxes

Medicine Box makes one of my favorite edibles, the nutty and potent medicine bar. They also make these wonderful chocolate truffles in various flavors and strains.

All of the Medicine Box truffles are made with the Indica-dominant Goo strain of cannabis. This strain is primarily meant to help with relaxing, easing anxiety and helping with sleep. Leafly describes Goo as “an 80% indica strain that mixes a sweet-tasting Blueberry with the hashy, resinous Hindu Kush. Deep physical relaxation is coupled with slight cerebral energy”.

Medicine Box truffles peanut butter circle

Flavor & Dosing

We tried the Peanut Butter Banana Goo truffle. It has a good chocolate flavor and some crunchy nut pieces for a nice texture. The cannabis taste is not overwhelming, it mixes nicely with the peanut buttery flavor. I wish the banana flavor was stronger, but that is a hard flavor to make strong without going artificial.

Each box contains 2 pieces of chocolate, each wrapped in foil. Each piece is 20mg and my usual dose is 10mg. With new edibles we always start out with half our usual dose, so I started with 5mg. I definitely noticed some relaxation and a body effect like I would expect from an Indica strain like Goo. After I was satisfied that 5mg wasn’t too strong, the next time I used 10mg.

Effects

When I first took a full 10mg dose I was already a little tired and within an hour I fell asleep on the couch, which is unusual for me. I woke an hour later a little groggy but was able to give the dog a spin in the yard and get ready for bed. I was glad when I got in bed and went to sleep in short order. I found these great for help with getting asleep and staying asleep. In the morning I feel refreshed and not groggy.

I am sensitive to Indica effects naturally, so these Goo truffles may be effecting me in a stronger way than someone with higher tolerance. They are also nicely strong, so do approach using them with caution and start slow. Try a quarter of one piece and wait 2 hours to see what the effects are for you.

I love the Medicine Bar products because they are strain specific and that lets me know exactly what to expect from my edibles – something you don’t get with generic “hybrid” edibles. These are in regular rotation for me.

Suck It Strawberry Lemonade Cannabis 2.5mg Low Dose Sweets to Suck Review

Alton’s review of Suck It! Sweets to Suck inspired me to sample this cannabis edible! Since his and my preferred THC dosing are so different (I use a much higher dose than Alton), I thought users with a higher tolerance would appreciate a review on a small THC dose product like this, which contains 2.5mg of THC per serving.

Canyon Suck It Strawberry Lemonade Low Dose Cannabis Infused Sweets Round Package

Suck It Strawberry Lemonade Sweets to Suck is a great option for folks that are brand new to edibles or are micro dosing enthusiasts. The reason that I suggest these groups is becuase each square piece of candy only has 2.5mg of THC which is one quarter of the standard dose of 10mg .

I take a larger dose of THC, usually about 40mg. So, I would need to ingest 16 pieces of Suck It Strawberry Lemonade Sweets to Suck to get high. That’s crazy. So, I ate 4 pieces equaling 10mg and tried micro dosing.

The Sweets to Suck are very heavy on the Strawberry flavor and very light on the lemonade side. I couldn’t pick up any medicinal taste. As far as suckers go, they are pleasant to eat and their size (smaller than a half an inch) was convenient to ingest multiple pieces at the same time.

I waited for a half an hour to feel any sign of effects. Nothing. Then I waited for an additional forty five minutes. I concentrated and really focused on feeling any effects that might be starting to evolve. I searched for a slight buzz. No luck.

I was unsuccessful at micro dosing. I never felt any effects. My mood was left unchanged. My energy was not altered. Nothing.

If you are an active cannabis user, Suck It Strawberry Lemonade Sweets to Suck is probably too small a dose to feel any effects, unless you eat a whole mouthful at a time. However, this is a great product for anyone who can micro dose successfully. New edible consumers can easily try small doses and not worry about overdoing it.

These suckers were unsuccessful for me. But, because of their discreet convenience, taste and small doses, I do recommend Suck It Strawberry Lemonade Sweets to Suck for beginners just staring to enjoy edibles.
