Medicine Box Cannabis Medicine Bar Review

by Alton

Medicine Box makes strain-specific products including chocolate truffles, tinctures and my favorite, the Medicine Bar. It’s a sweet nutty treat with the energizing effects I like.
Each bar contains 20mg of THC, so since I usually get the best effects from 10mg, I can get two doses out of one bar.

Medicine Box medicine bars

These are a hard, crunchy nut bar, so you do want to be careful if you are cutting them into pieces. Biting one in half isn’t too hard and I wouldn’t try to cut it into more than 4 pieces as it could start to fall apart. If you are new to this edible, do start with cutting it into 4 pieces and try a 5mg dose first. Wait 2 hours to judge the effects then try more if you want a stronger effect.

I love this bar because it not only tastes great, Medicine Bar gives me strain-specific effects from the Sativa strain Sour Diesel. Sour Diesel aka Sour D is used to make the cannabis oil that goes into the bars. Sour D has a very energizing and focusing effect that helps power me through chores, housework or a hike in the woods. Add to that they are  handmade in California’s Sierra Mountains and vegan, it adds up to a winning cannabis edible.

For fans of smoky flavors, the Smoked Almond bar has almonds, sunflower seeds and flax seeds. The Curry bar is spiced with classic curry spices, cashews, pistachios and chickpeas. My personal favorite is the Spiced Peanut bar, since I like spicy food, peanuts  and pumpkin seeds.

I have found these to be one of the most energetic of the edibles I have tried. Happy, uplifting and energetic are all appropriate to describe the effects.

Like many edibles producers, they have had to rework their packaging to comply with the new rules for edibles in California. While they are currently dealing with meeting the new packaging and licensing requirements, they are alive and well.

Highly Edible Cannabis Watermelon Pucks with NXT Review

By Ruth

The first time I tried Highly Edible Watermelon Pucks was on a wonderful day hanging with a dear friend at an amazing spa. Ideal! It was a great mood-lifting edible and I knew right away I would have to enjoy them again and that I had to take notes for a review.

highly-edible-watermelon-pucks.jpgThese gummies come in a little more than 10 mg of THC per piece and there are ten pieces per container. The pucks are bigger than your average gummies. The candy piece is like if two and a half gummy bears were melted together and put into a one inch disc mold. Watermelon Pucks taste good, not too sour, not too medicinal.

After eating the cannabis candy it took approximately 45 minutes for effects to set in. Highly Edible Watermelon Pucks have a steady, energetic high. My mood definitely felt lighter, happier. I was able to communicate with angst ridden teenagers with success while at the same time was still completely mobile and able to finish the tasks I had planned for the day.

I did get the munchies. So be warned. Have healthy food and drinks available!

The high lasted a solid 2 1/2 hours and left me feeling great with energy and not lethargic.

I will definitely be using Highly Edible Watermelon Pucks again. They are probably my favorite gummy on the market. The buzz and mood uplift are amazing. Highly recommended. Highly.

This edible was recommended to me by a good friend and I was happy to try them on a visit to Colorado. I thought they tasted great and for me the effect was an uplifting, happy one. I rarely get the giggles from being high, but I had a touch of them on these pucks!

These edibles claim to have faster absorption because of what the label refers to as NXT –  “Feel it faster with NXT extraction technology”. Nowhere on the bottle does it detail what that technolgy is or how it works. Also a search of the website brought up no results for NXT. On a dispensary website I found this – “…with their new Nano eXtraction Technology (NXT), these gummies pack a powerful punch. The NXT system lets you feel it faster by allowing tiny THC molecules to absorb sublingually. You feel it faster and longer as your stomach metabolizes the THC buried within the gummy.” If you are interested in more there is some explanation from a company that makes the “nano extractor” here.

Highly Edible PucksWatermelon is just one of the flavors, which include peach, cherry, assorted fruity and golden strawberry. They are vegan and gluten free. As with other of this brands products, there is no mention of which type of cannabis (Indica, Hybrid, Sativa) or which strain (Blue Dream, Kush, etc.) to guide consumers on what effects to expect. From the effects we experienced we are guessing it is a Sativa dominant hybrid.

These gummies come from the folks at Cannapunch, who also make CannaPunch drinks and Dutch Girl Stroopwafels (our review here).
