Atlas Lemon Cannabis Infused Gourmet Granola Trail Bar Review

Atlas Cannabis Infused Gourmet Granola Trail Bar is a 1:1, having equal amounts of THC and CBD. This formula comes in a Lemon, Blueberry and Almond flavor with one bar containing 5mg of THC and 5mg of CBD.These are vegan and their only allergen is nuts.

Atlas has another bar called the Peak bar, with the same THC to CBD ratio, but with a Sativa dominant effect and Salted Caramel flavor. As with most Atlas products they are colorfully packaged (they describe the package artist on their website) and interestingly flavored.

Atlas Cannabis infused gourmet granola trail bar lemon, blueberry and almond with 5mg THC and 5mg CBD

Product

The packaging has to be somewhat child proof, so you do need to cut it open. A strong lemon smell greets you immediately. This is not a dry crunchy granola bar (when fresh, I can’t speak to it if you hold onto it for too long), it is a moist, chewy bar.

The flavor is Lemon turned up to 11. I love strong lemon flavor and I was a little taken aback by how lemony it was. I think it’s needed to avoid having you taste the cannabis oil and I was very happy with it as a lemon-flavor lover. The blueberry and almond provide a little bit of a taste counterpoint, but they are only the background at best. Very tasty and not a strong cannabis taste.

Effects

I found this bar to have relaxing effects, similar to an Indica-dominant hybrid strain. I was alert enough to pay attention but only in a laid back way. Eventually the relaxing effects took over and I could have easily rested my eyes for a while. I am sensitive to Indica strains, so for folks who like the Indica effects this may be perfect and they may not experience the strong relaxing effect I experienced. It was generally a balanced effect of being alert but feeling chill. I had a mild munchie effect from this edible, but nothing ravenous.

Overall a great tasting LEMON granola bar that is easily portable, has a nice chill experience and can be cut in half for a smaller dose experience.

Kiva Camino Watermelon Lemonade Bliss Cannabis Gummies Review

Camino cannabis gummies come in a Bliss Social formula with a Watermelon Lemonade flavor. This formula has 5mg of THC and 0mg of CBD per serving, for a total of 100mg THC and 0mg 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.

Kiva Camino Bliss Cannabis Infused Gummies 100mg tin

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 tin is one you push in while you turn to open. The gummies are not individually wrapped.

Dosing & Flavor

The smell from the tin is a natural lemon and fruit 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 lemonade and fruit flavor that doesn’t have any bad aftertaste. A mild sour note gives these that suggestion of lemonade and the fruit flavors suggests watermelon, but I don’t feel these taste a lot like watermelon.

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 5mg THC. Since I am experienced with edibles and my usual dose is 10mg of THC, I began with one piece, with 5mg THC. After having only light effects for that trial run, I then moved closer to my usual, taking two gummies for a total dose of 10mg THC. I sometimes use two and a half pieces for a 12.5mg dose of THC when I want a stronger effect, if I have recently eaten or if I’ve taken CBD, which can tamp down the effects for me.

Effects

The effects I experienced were a lovely elevated and relaxed feeling, while still being alert and energetic. I love these for interacting with nature whether it’s gardening, a forest “bath” or a walk on the beach. As someone who enjoys photography, these are great for staying alert to great images without feeling over-hyped and at the same time the mild relaxation leaves you open to possibility. A very positive effect that feels mostly like a Sativa-type effect of elevated mind along with an Indica kind of body relaxation that isn’t too strong that you just want to sit down.

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.

Kiva Camino Wild Cherry Excite Cannabis Gummies Review

Camino cannabis gummies come in an Excite formula with a Wild Cherry flavor. This formula has 5mg of THC and 0mg of CBD per serving, for a total of 100mg THC and 0mg 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.

Kiva Camino Excite Cannabis Infused Gummies Red Tin

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 screw top tin is one you push down to turn and open. The gummies are not individually wrapped.

Dosing & Flavor

The smell from the gummies is as expected a cherry 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 regular cherry flavor that doesn’t have any bad aftertaste. A mild sour note from citric acid gives these that sour-ish twist to the cherry flavor. I’m not a cherry flavor fan, so I don’t rate these high in taste, but they are perfectly fine even for a cherry flavor hater.

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 Excite gummies are easy to bite in half to give a 2.5mg THC dose. Since I am experienced with edibles and my usual dose is 10mg of THC, I began with one piece, with 5mg THC. After having only light effects for that trial run, I then moved closer to my usual dose, taking two gummies for a total dose of 10mg THC. I also tried 12.5 mg using two and a half 5,g pieces to see if the effects were more noticeable.

Effects

The effects I experienced were not substantial for me, but were a very pleasant mildly relaxing and elevated sensation. Like most edibles, the impact often reflects and amplifies your state of mind. If you are not “in the mood”, these will not suddenly put you in the mood in my opinion, but if you are feeling frisky, these can smooth the path by heightening your senses and increasing sensations. These could really boost your fun if the timing is right.

Overall enjoyable with no negative effects like drowsiness or a too spaced-out head effect. Good 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.

Kiva Camino Sparkling Pear CBD Cannabis Gummies Review

Camino cannabis gummies come in a Social formula with a Sparkling Pear flavor. This 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 tin is one you push down while you turn it to open. The gummies are not individually wrapped.

Dosing & Flavor

The smell from the tin 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.

Kiva Camino Holiday Punch Cannabis Gummies Review

Kiva Camino makes their Holiday Punch cannabis gummies with a flavor reminiscent of red punch that has a cranberry and cinnamon flavor. This formula has 5mg of THC and 0mg of CBD per serving, and the bag holds 20 gummies, for a total of 100mg THC 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 around $20 for a package, making it $2.00 for each 10mg serving of THC. 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 pronounced red punch smell. Like the other Camino gummies, they have a lovely opaque appearance and a soft texture that is easy to bite through.

The flavor seems to have cranberry/cherry flavor with just a hint of cinnamon and that doesn’t have any strong cannabis oil taste or bad aftertaste. A mild sour note gives these that tart cranberry type 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 Kiva Camino Holiday Punch gummies are easy to cut or bite in half to give a 2.5mg THC dose. Since I am experienced with edibles and my usual dose is 10mg of THC, I began with one full piece that has 5mg THC. After having only light effects for that trial run, on another day I then to my usual 10 mg dose, taking two gummies for a total dose of 10mg THC.

Effects

The 10mg THC dose produced a noticeable effect. The main effect I experienced was heightened senses – things looked, smelled and tasted more intense. I didn’t experience a big energy boost as I do with some Sativa gummies, the physical effects were more relaxing than energizing but without drowsiness or couch-lock. I found these a good fit for mild activity that takes advantage of the heightened senses, like puttering in the garden, cooking or going for a walk in nature.

I can see how these would be a good fit for enjoying holiday meals, staring at holiday lights or brightly colored packages while snacking on a candy cane.

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. Read our reviews of the other Camino gummies here.

ZootDrops Premium Cannabis Infused Concentrate – Sativa High Energy “Yippee Ki-Yay” Mandarin Lime Flavored Blend Review

ZootDrops are a cannabis-infused liquid that can be added to drinks or taken straight. The cap is used to measure out one dose (1/2 teaspoon), which provides 5mg of THC. The green coffee bean extract and green tea in the Sativa High Energy Blend give this “drinkable” a real caffeine punch, that along with the THC produces an amazing, uplifting high.

ZootDrops

The Mandarin Lime High Energy Blend ZootDrops are sugar free, vegan, gluten free and contain no artificial colors, flavors or preservatives. They contain 100mg THC per bottle and have a child-resistant measuring cap. You can mix ZootDrops concentrates with any favorite drink like tea, lemonade, soda or you can put it directly under your tongue.

The Sativa Concentrate looks like cloudy orange juice. The cap is similar to the top of a Visine bottle. Very easy to measure dosing. It’s a good idea to rinse off the cap after pouring, as it could get very sticky.

I tried it straight, no mixer to get a taste of the product by itself. It had the distinct taste of bottled mandarin orange juice plus lime with a strong medicinal flavor. I mixed it in orange juice and was unable to detect any medicinal taste.

ZootDrops are very potent, so as with any new THC product you ingest, start with half of your normal dose. Normally 10 mg of THC provides the effects I prefer. I only used 5mg the first time trying ZootDrops and I was glad I did. I usually drink coffee or something with caffeine to help boost absorption of edibles. I am sensitive to caffeine and have at most 2 cups of coffee in one day. I felt a strong caffeinated effect just from the half a dose, as I already had half a cup of coffee in my system. I appreciated the energy and focus, though caffeine can produce an “edgy” feeling for me when I have too much, and that is what I started to feel. I stopped drinking the coffee and just let the ZootDrops do their thing, so I wasn’t uncomfortable, just felt a bit hyper-caffeinated. the effects subsided after a few hours.

I tried a 7.5mg dose next, using a measuring spoon to get 3/4 of a teaspoon. I had noticeable effects and had energy for a nice long walk. When I tried a full dose, I did so without caffeine as I think it would be too much for me. One serving contains the same amount of caffeine as half an espresso shot, so a full 10mg dose for me contained a full espresso shot and it feels like it.

ZootDrops Cannabis-Infused High Energy Sativa Blend Mandarin Lime flavor

It can take up to two hours to feel the effects of these concentrates, so be patient. Don’t up your dose because you don’t think it’s working.

After 20 minutes I could feel the caffeine buzz. By 70 minutes, I began to have a light buzz. Then I felt elevated in the most enjoyable way. Like the Zoots nuggets, this was a very up, happy high.

The high lasted 2 hours. There weren’t any munchies from this concentrate. When I tried this Concentrate again, I felt the same euphoric buzz. It was calming and uplifting at the same time. The second time I tried ZootDrops the high lasted a little over 2 hours.

ZootDrops Premium Cannabis Infused Concentrate is really convenient, just mix with your favorite drink. The small size makes it easy to take on the road and the self contained serving size cap means you can measure out a dose anywhere, even without a measuring spoon.

We recommend ZootDrops. The high is euphoric and consistent. The dosing is simple and I have never had a better glass of orange juice! Energetic nirvana is within reach!

Unfortunately these are available only in Washington State in the Seattle/Puget Sound area as of 2020, but we hope to see them widely available soon!
