Half Lit is a line of hard candies and lollipops. The lollipop includes a seed in the stick that you can plant to grow cannabis if you are so inclined. All of the products are Organic, Vegan, Non-GMO, Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, Nut-Free, Soy-Free, and Artificial Dye-Free. They do not indicate the type or strain of cannabis used to make the candies.
I tried the purple colored Moonlit hard candy. It tasted sweet but with no other particular flavor – I was expecting grape or something to match the color. Instead they taste like sugar water, which is a missed opportunity. Who doesn’t want some delicious flavor with their edible? The package lists the flavors as Watermelon Wonderland, Lit Lemonade, Lunar Lavender, Calming Caramel Açaí, Pineapple Paradise, and Hot Mama Mango. I still have no idea what flavor I had.
As with all new edibles, I like to start with half of my usual does of 10mg. You never know how potent an edible will be. When edibles like these don’t indicate what strain is used or even if the cannabis used was Sativa or Indica, you might be hoping for an uplift and creativity but you get couch-lock or fall asleep. That is why I always prefer to know either the type or strain of cannabis in my edibles. Since it is very difficult to cut hard candies in half, I just waited until about half it had dissolved, then put the rest in a small glass dish. I would recommend doing the same with the lollipop if it’s your first time trying it.
I had no noticeably different effects than I would expect from a mild edible made with hybrid strains. I experienced no creative uplift or relaxation or euphoria. It was pretty “m’eh”.
While the seed in the stick is a novelty, it isn’t compelling enough to persuade me to buy this edible over others. I may try other flavors as perhaps I just got a flavor that doesn’t come through well. My experience of no great effects and no exciting taste makes this something I can’t really recommend.
