Sensi Chew Insomnia Cannabis THC & CBD Chocolate Caramels Review

Sensi Chew’s Insomnia product has 10 doses of cannabis-infused chocolate caramels. Each dose has 10mg of THC plus 2mg of melatonin to aid in getting to sleep and staying asleep. The Insomnia Plus product has no THC, just CBD and melatonin.

If you are sensitive to the effects of melatonin and of Indica strains of cannabis, these products pack a punch. Even the description on the website says “Those who are new to or have a low tolerance with medicated edibles should proceed slowly” – listen to that advice.

Taste & Ingredients

Like the other Sensi Chew products, this edible is a chocolate caramel confection that does a good job of hiding the THC taste. If you are not a fan of the taste of cannabis oil, this is good product for you to try, as the taste is on the mild side. The Plus product has no THC so it has no cannabis taste. This edible is usually described as having a “tootsie-roll” type flavor and Sensi Chews have a similar consistency as those treats.

I like that Sensi Chew has a short ingredient list and that everything is something your grandmother might use in making treats (except maybe the cannabis extract, depending on your grandmother). They are not full of chemicals and fillers. They do contain dairy so they are not an option for those who avoid dairy, be it for allergy, by choice, because of being a vegan and cruelty-free or any other reason.

Effects & Dosing

Usually within 30-45 minutes of taking one of these I begin to feel sleepy. I am sensitive to melatonin and each dose has 2mg of it per dose along with either 10mg of THC or CBD. Once the effects begin to set in, I am able to get ready for bed and I last about another 30 minutes before my eyes are too heavy to keep open. I would not take more than my usual does of one 10mg THC piece as I find the effects are strong enough.

Sometimes I do experience something of a groggy feeling in the morning, which I don’t like. I experience that with several other types of sleep aids, so I think it is the melatonin. I prefer to wake up refreshed and not groggy. I am fortunate that insomnia is only an occasional issue so I don’t usual use a sleep aid. Folks who are more tolerant of melatonin, might not have the grogginess. I don’t have it every time, but close to half the time when I use products like this.

These are a solid sleep aid and I like that they are not knock-out pills. While I was sleeping the electricity went out and woke me up, but I was able to get back to sleep – until it came back on and woke me up again. Still I was able to go back to sleep.

I didn’t have dreams that were any more bizarre than usual and I didn’t sleep eat or sleep drive like some sleeping pills make you do.

Wrap Up

If you have problems getting to sleep or staying asleep, I would recommend giving Sensi Chew Insomnia or Plus formulas a try. If you find you experience the grogginess, experiment with half or a quarter of a 10mg dose, to see if that reduces the impact.

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”.

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.

Growing Kitchen Heavenly Honey Lemon Indica Cannabis Chill Pills Review

There are tons of edibles in dispensaries. It’s amazing and overwhelming at the same time.

When enjoying cannabis on the go, I look for a discrete and compact suckers. Something small that has a kick. I want something that I can shove in my purse that won’t spill or make a mess. I’ve found it’s easiest to carry suckers.

I have two favorite kind: Zoots Rocks and The Growing Kitchen-Honey Lemon Chill Pills.

I prefer Indica edibles. Chill Pills come in a delicious Honey Lemon in Indica. It’s in a flat, cardboard container that encompasses a blister pack of suckers. After futzing around with the child protection, I started enjoying Chill Pills.

Each 10mg dose is approximately one third the size of a traditional gum drop. The great tasting Indica candy is a clear yellow. Growing Kitchen uses local honey and you can really taste the quality. I couldn’t detect a medicinal flavor at all. It has a light, lemon tea taste that I really enjoyed. (Some edible companies are solely focused on the effects, leaving flavors that are undesirable.)

After an hour and ten minutes, I started to feel the effects ramp up. I was beginning to relax; tension was evaporating. I was slowing down physically and finding my spot on the couch.

Chill Pills gave me dry mouth and a small case of the munchies. So be forewarned, have your favorite, healthy drinks and snacks on hand.

With the buzz from Chill Pills, I experienced a ringing in my ears and a slight body high. A tingling sensation would come and go. My muscles relaxed. My mood elevated. The high lasted two and a half hours. It probably would’ve lasted longer if I didn’t eat during the munchies.

This edible tastes delicious and has superior calming effects. Chill Pills come in a variety of flavors: Heavenly Honey Lemon (Indica), Sublime Spearmint (Sativa) and Super CBD Blueberry. I have found their CBD is moderately helpful with joint discomfort. Chill Pills ingredients are organic, dairy free, wheat free and gluten free.

For the taste, the discretion and the effects, Growing Kitchen Chill Pills are a must have edible.

Dixie Tropic Twist Pineapple Indica Cannabis Gummies Review

I love my regular budtenders. They are knowledgeable about everything Cannabis and especially edibles. They always point me in the direction of some amazing products.There was a NEW budtender at my local, mountain dispensary. I asked her to show me her suggestions for strain specific items and I bought a few of her picks plus some of my old favorites this week.

Dixie TropicTwist solo

The first edible I tried that she pointed out was Dixie Tropic Twist Indica Pineapple Gummies. The edibles market is saturated with gummies, however, I  have never seen Pineapple Gummies that were specifically Indica or Sativa. So, I was totally excited to try a less common flavor in the cannabis type that I enjoy most. 

The Tropic Twist gummies are shaped like balls cut in half. They are a faint yellow color and and heavily coated with sugar. The taste was delicious with no detectable medicinal taste. I loved this gummy’s firm, chewy texture. 

Dixie Tropic Twist gummies come in a container of ten 10mg pieces. I took my normal dose of 40mg. 

After an hour, I felt a small, light high. Surprisingly, I was very active after taking this Indica strain edible. However, I kept on waiting for the high to get stronger. But it never did.

So the following day, I regrouped and took a larger, 50mg dose to see if I just needed a boost to my THC intake. Maybe this edible is less strong than other cannabis gummies on the market? After an hour of waiting for stronger effects I was left disappointed. Again, there was just a slight tingle of a buzz. A whisper of a high. So, I waited some more. Literally saying to myself, “Am I high?” “Is this it?” After 90 minutes, the buzz is still very, very light. “Ok, it’s the product, this is not working for me”.

After trying a second time eating a stronger dose, I’m left searching for a high to write about. All I feel is a light tingling feeling in my head and my wallet.

If you’re looking to get stoned, Dixie Tropic Twist Gummies are not for you. If you are new to edibles and want to experience a very light buzz, these pineapple gummies are perfect.

Dixie Tropic Twist Other Gummies

Now I’ve learned that when I am helped by an unfamiliar budtender, I will ask three questions:

1) Is it strain specific?

2) Is it strong?

3) Have you personally tried it?

That seems to cover all areas. Good luck and if you find an amazing edible, Alton and I would love to hear about!

Big Pete’s Cannabis-Infused Mini Cookies Review

By Alton

Big Pete’s Cannabis-infused mini cookies are billed as “Cookies That Treat You Right”. They come in CBD, Indica & Sativa types. For some reason the Indica comes with ten (10) cookies, each with 10mg of THC and the Sativa comes with six (6)  cookies, each with 10mg of THC.

Taste

For this review, I tried the Peanut Butter flavor of the Sativa and the Cinnamon & Sugar flavor of the Indica.

Big Petes Sativa Cannabis-Infused Mini Cookies

The Peanut Butter smells and tastes like a typical peanut butter cookie – chewy yet dry – that is packed with cannabis. Same goes for the Indica Cinnamon Sugar mini cookie, a great cookie taste with the cannabis butter taste alongside it. While you can get away with eating these cookies without liquid, some coffee, almond milk, or tea to go with them is a welcome addition.

Taking a whiff from the bag smells like someone put peanut butter cookies into a quarter ounce bag of primo weed. Or that you have a piece of cinnamon toast in your stash, so it can both give you and cure your munchies.

You know these are well infused when the cannabis smell is this pronounced. I think they smell great. I found the thc taste from the cannabis butter was pronounced as well. They are not trying to cover up the taste but let it blend with the flavors of the cookies.

I think Big Pete’s achieves a very good balance between the cannabis and the other flavors, as I don’t mind the subtle, slightly grassy taste of cannabis butter.

Ingredients & Packaging

They do contain butter and eggs so they are not vegan and the nuts are an issue for folks with allergies. I like that most of the ingredients are ones that I use in cooking myself, not a lot of extra chemicals or preservatives. Big Pete’s says they use a slow-cook method to make their cannabutter which gives a full spectrum effect.

Packaging is mercifully easy to open, with a tear strip that exposes a two-hand resealable closure similar to many child-safe pouches. There are helpful graphics on the package to help users get the bag open.

Effects

The effects seem to run true to the type, so I couldn’t be happier. Trying a Sativa cookie after breakfast gave me the focus, uplift and energy to run around and get a lot accomplished by noon. This is just what I want and expect from a Sativa cannabis edible. During my errands there may have been an extra stop to buy a few unnecessary but very pretty things, but those happen even when being elevated isn’t involved.

I had some caffeine at lunch and didn’t eat a lot – although I did have the munchies – so the effects continued even after lunch, a total of about 5 hours worth of effects, although they did start to fade after about 4 hours.

BigPetesGingerIndicaTreats

With the Indica, I tried them in the evening since I am pretty sensitive to Indica effects . Within an hour I found them nicely relaxing but not to the point of couch-lock. I flirted with groggy but was able to maintain a relaxed alertness. After 2 hours, my eyelids did start to feel heavier. Being active became less and less attractive. I could see taking these on a winter weekend afternoon for binge watching TV curled up on the couch. I eventually headed off to dreamland nicely chilled out.

I think Big Pete’s makes some great cannabis edibles. I appreciate that they are Sativa/Indica type specific. I would love it if they would share which strain or strains they use. This is a very good tasting cannabis mini cookie that provides consistent, predictable results. Definitely worth the calories and a wonderful way to elevate.

By Ruth

The first time I tested Big Pete’s Cannabis Infused Cinnamon and Sugar Mini Cookies, the complete body high was so amazing I didn’t feel like writing any review notes. It was a strong, intense buzz that very few edibles can compete with. I loved it. Happily, I tried these cookies again with the serious intention to write a glowing product review.

Big Petes Indica Cinnamon & Sugar Cannabis Infused Mini Cookies

Big Pete’s Cinnamon and Sugar Mini Cookies are Indica strain cannabis infused edibles. Each cookie has 10mg of THC. The cookie itself is approximately a 2 inch circle.I took my regular dose of 40mg or four 10mg cookies. But I warn you, these Indica cookies will get you VERY high. So the first time you try Big Pete’s Cinnamon and Sugar Cookies, I encourage you to take a smaller dose than usual. If you are a beginner, be conservative and try half a cookie.

The Cinnamon and Sugar Mini Cookies have the perfect combination of spices. Big Pete’s got the texture right, crunchy in the outside and slightly chewy on the inside. (I hate dry, crumbly cannabis edibles.) There was a faint medicinal taste, but it doesn’t take away from the traditional flavors of the cookies.

After an hour and fifteen minutes, the buzz started ramping up and got very strong. I became very relaxed and settled down to feel the complete body high.  I was keening aware of my heartbeat in my ears. At some points, it was difficult to get my eyes to focus. I spent 95% of the time chilling in my chair, just hanging out, which is normal for an Indica edible.The buzz lasted for 2 hours. Then slowly decreased little by little until I became clearheaded and sober.

I highly recommend Big Pete’s Cinnamon and Sugar Mini Cookies. I love their strength. You should buy them right away! These are definitely my favorite THC cookies on the market.

EdiPure Sour Berry Bombs Cannabis Gummies Review

By Ruth

Recently, I went to my local dispensary in the beautiful foothills of Colorado. My budtender was actually the retail shop manager. We talked about edibles for a while. I mentioned that cannabis gummies have not always gotten me buzzed. She suggested EdiPure Classic Sour Berry Bombs. I bought them and a handful of other yummy edibles right away. (Who am I kidding, I bought as many as I could legally carry out of the dispensary!!).

EdiPure Sour Berry BombsEdiPure Classic Sour Berry Bombs come in a bottle of ten 10mg doses. Whenever my dispensary says something is strong- I believe them. I usually need 50mg to feel effects, but to be on the careful side, I only took a 40mg dose.

These Sour Berry Bombs taste delicious. Not too sour. The flavor was a general, mixed berry taste with a fine sugar coating. EdiPure has the texture perfectly in this product. They are really chewy gummies!

After an hour and a half I felt a calm buzz, my anxieties were lowered. I was really relaxed. I also felt noticeably less energetic. Curiously, my auditory senses were heightened; I could hear a pin drop.

My dear friend Alton, has taught me a lot about asking my budtender’s for strain specific edibles. Indica and Sativa. This product is a Hybrid so it is not as easy to know what you’re getting. EdiPure Classic Sour Berry Bombs have calming effects, less energetic, and super auditory abilities.

At some points while using EdiPure Classic Sour Berry Bombs I felt shaky. It never lasted long, but there was some internal jitters that wasn’t expected or enjoyable. I’m glad I took a lower dose. The high lasted about an hour and forty five minutes. There were no munchies.

EdiPure Sour Berry BombsI liked the taste and the calming effects of EdiPure Classic Sour Berry Bombs so much, I followed the review up the following day with a second sampling. That time the high was much more uplifting and euphoric. I had no shakiness, making the high much more enjoyable.

Overall, these are great tasting gummies that provide a strong high. This Hybrid of strains appears to favor Indica. So prepare accordingly, this is a low energy buzz.

As far as cannabis gummies go, EdiPure Classic Sour Berry Bombs are a success. I would buy them again. I recommend you give them a try. Just be patient, the Sour Berry Bombs take a little longer for the buzz to set in. Enjoy!!!
