Incredibles Microdosed Cannabis Infused Calming Fire Mints Review

From Incredibles, these spicy cinnamon mints with 2mg of THC in each piece are, as the name implies, a low dose edible with calming effects.

Product and Taste

These mints come in a small round plastic container with a screw top lid. They almost fill the container so they are much less over-packaged than other edibles. They were easy to open and should be easy for folks with limited hand strength. It’s the classic “push down and turn” lid and it doesn’t require a lot of strength to get them open, a blessing for folks with arthritis or other similar hand mobility restrictions. They are small round tablets, so they’re very convenient and portable.

There are no allergens listed on the hidden label (you have to peel the label back to read the nutrition information and ingredients). They contain no dairy or other animal products so they are suitable for vegetarians and vegans.

These are strongly flavored with cinnamon, almost an Altoids-type strength. They call them Fire Mints for a reason! If you don’t care for cinnamon you would not like these. At my normal dose they even gave me a very small stomach ache from the cinnamon, likely because of what else was in my stomach, but be aware if you are sensitive to cinnamon or have an easily upset stomach.

Dosing

These are a great cannabis edible for folks new to edibles, because you can start with one for a 2mg dose of THC to see how it effects you. If that goes well, next time try 4mg then another time 6mg. See how they work with your system and tolerance. Always start low and go slow.

Like all edibles, I try a smaller dose when I’m not familiar with the product. For these I tried three the first time, for a dose of 6mg, since my usual dose is 10mg. I felt mildly relaxed but nothing much else. The next time I tried four, for a dose of 8mg.

Effects

At 8mg I definitely felt the anti-anxiety and calming effects. I was pleasantly surprised that they were not sleep inducing, as many edibles with relaxing/ Indica-type effects can produce couch lock or sleepiness. Sometimes you want that, but these focus on the calming without making me tired.

For those times you want the calming effects without the heavy body, these are a great low dose cannabis edible. Would love to see these in a higher dose formula for folks who need more than 10 or 20mg of THC. Taking 25 of these for a 50mg dose would not be fun.

Stokes Micros Cannabis Infused Candies Review

by Alton

Micros from Stokes Confections are small candies with 5mg of THC that come 20 mints to a bottle for a total of 100mg. They come in Mint (Sativa), Watermelon (Hybrid), Tangerine Cream (Hybrid) and Honey Lemon Ginger (Indica).

I always prefer edibles that indicate if they Sativa, Indica or a Hybrid and I find it most helpful when they list the strain used to make the oil. I appreciate the Micros indicating what type of cannabis used so I can better anticipate the effects.

The mints are tiny and the pill bottle container is small, so these are easily portable and discrete. Regrettably there is a lot of wasted space in the container. I understand edible makers have to make compromises when dealing with the regulations for child-proof containers and I wish there were smaller packaging that met requirements.

Taste

The Mint Micros smell minty, if a little chalky, and taste pretty much the same. There is a strong mint oil flavor, not much THC flavor and just a hint of a chalky taste. These are sugar free so don’t expect them to be sweet, they just taste like mint without being sweet or sour. Mint is a flavor I like and it has a natural sweetness so I didn’t feel I was missing anything.

If you don’t chew them, they take a good 5 minutes to dissolve in the mouth. The effects begin within an hour for me, with full effect around the 90 minute mark.

Effects

These are potent little mints. I took my usual dose of 10mg one afternoon and the Sativa effect was able to break right through my usual mid-afternoon lack of energy. I found the effects were uplifting, energizing and focused – exactly what I would expect from a Sativa edible. I was able to get more accomplished than in a typical late afternoon.

While these are not my favorite edible in terms of taste, I really like the effects, so they will be a part of my edibles cabinet.
