Cheeba Chews Indica 70mg/ 100mg Review

I’ve been struggling to find a strong edible that doesn’t taste “weedy”. My favorite budtender recommended Cheba Chews in the 70mg pack. It comes in Sativa and Indica specific strains. I bought a couple of Indica packs and was very excited to try them.

After opening the package, I saw that there were two, 35mg doses. I eyeballed my dose to be close to 50mg and ate it.

CheebaChew CO MED 70mg IndicaThe Cheba Chew tasted exactly like a Tootsie Roll with no pot taste at all! It was pleasantly surprising. The effects were starting to be noticeable after 15 minutes. In a half an hour, I was really stoned. I was active in the beginning, but pretty quickly, I had to sit down and enjoy the buzz.

Cheba Chews gave me serious munchies. So be prepared! Have some of your favorite, healthy snacks ready before you enjoy this.

The effects started to wear off at the 3 1/2 hours mark.

I would definitely buy Cheba Chews again and I highly recommend it. Next time I visit my favorite dispensary, I’ll pick up more and try some of their Sativa strain too.

Note: The original review was written in 2017. In 2019, Cheeba Chews let us know that “these  babies are 100mg medical dose now!”. That’s why the title is 70mg/100mg.

Wana Watermelon Cannabis Gummies Review

One of the first edibles I tried years ago were cannabis gummies. They were familiar sounding and I didn’t really know what else to try. That was a while ago. Here I am today reviewing Wana Watermelon Gummies. It feels like old times.

Wana Gummies Watermelon

They come in a container of 10 pieces (20 mg each). One gummy works out to cost $2.00. This edible doesn’t say of it is Indica or Sativa and is not strain specific.

I do not like the taste of these gummies. I’ve had Wana’s mixed flavor gummies and the watermelon ones are really the best. It tastes very medicinal, then it gets bitter. I don’t enjoy the taste of these gummies. Its’ okay but just generic with the bitter aftertaste.

Although I took a little more than my usual dose, the high was not too strong. It took about 45 minutes to have any noticeable effects. This was more “up” like a sativa buzz. I was able to accomplish several tasks. Focusing was very easy. The high lasted 3 hours and I didn’t have the munchies.

Twice more I took a 10mg dose, which is my usual dose and felt practically nothing. I tried boosting them with 2.5mg of another gummy but still almost no effect. It was like taking nothing at all, which felt like a waste of money.

The edibles industry is growing with all types of amazing products. Wana Gummies are a safe bet, but I urge you to talk with your favorite budtender and ask for their recommendations and read our reviews for honest feedback.

Between the bad taste and the weak, non-specific effects, I can’t recommend these gummies.

Emerald Mountain Corner Stones Cannabis Candies Review

Emerald Mountain (formerly Canna Vita Botanicals) makes a variety of cannabis infused candies that are like chocolate squares.

They have ten different flavors, some available in CBD formulas. The candy squares come in ten individually wrapped packages to a bag, each squares has 10mg of THC (or CBD for those formulas).

These contain milk and tree nuts (almonds) so they are not suitable for vegans or those with nut allergies. They also contain palm oil, which is a concern for some folks due to the environmental impact of that ingredient. They also contain whey and they don’t indicate if it is gluten-free whey protein or another form of whey, so they may not be gluten-free.

The package is easy to open with the classic tear across strip common to many resealable bags. The individual packages are not marked or labeled in any way, a concern if they get separated from their bag as there is no way to tell flavor, potency or formula if you were to mix up the plain bags. Keep the individuals with the “mother” bag to avoid confusion. The individual bags are also easy to open, which is great. Keep these away from pets and children as they are easy to get into.

Canna Vita Botanicals Corner Stones Cannabis Infused flavored candies, two bags one of Raspberry White Chocolate flavor and one Mint Milk Chocolate flavor

Taste

Tried the Raspberry white chocolate flavor. It was a pretty generic flavor, neither gourmet nor totally artificial. They do use artificial flavors and you can tell, as there is an artificiality to the raspberry flavor as it’s mixed with sweet almond oil. There is something slighty off and a little chalky overall about the taste of these chocolate candies. They finish pretty smooth with the white chocolate flavor you’d expect. They taste fine but aren’t as gourmet as some of the other infused chocolates on the market. No noticeable THC oil taste, a big plus for folks who don’t like that taste.

Effects

The budtender where I purchased these recommended them becaus I said I preferred Sativa-type effects. He said that folks who liked Cornerstones used them during the day and so they didn’t create a sedating effect.

None of the CornerStones products I saw have any indication of Sativa or Indica or what strain is used in the cannabis extract. I greatly prefer some indication of what effects I can expect based on the profile of the THC, but there is no such indication.

I did find the effects to be okay for daytime. I didn’t feel sedated or have a heavy head. Focus was the main effect I experienced. Some energy but not a lot and no noticeable uplift in mood that I find with some cannabis edibles. In waves it was like a caffeine rush, with that slightly hyped feeling after drinking strong coffee. They definitely are potent, with strong effects felt at my usual dose of 10mg. Long lasting too, as the effects linger for almost 5 hours.

For a functional, focused and long-lasting experience, Corner Stones deliver. No exotic flavors or ingredients but a solid cannabis edible suitable for daytime or socializing.

These are made and sold in the state of Washington only as of 2019.

Dabba Mint Cannabis Chocolate Review

Dabba Mint Choc Front

Dabba Mint Chocolate bars come in Sativa, Indica and Hybrid formulas. According to their website, there is a 100mg version of the Sativa and Indica and a 200mg version of the Hybrid. I had a 200mg version of the Sativa, so either the website is wrong or we got an older product that they don’t make anymore.

This is another product we find very hard to open. While that is good child proofing, it makes it a pain to keep in the original box, so once you get it out the first time, keep it in a sandwich bag or something to avoid using the packaging.

Dabba Mint Choc Back

This is another edible with what could be for some a dangerously high dosing. The entire bar is 200 mg of THC and it says there are 5 servings, which means each piece of chocolate has 40mg of THC. Since the standard dosing we use as a guide is 10mg of THC, this means that someone who is new to edibles could easily overdose by eating one whole piece. We strongly recommend cutting up each of the five servings into four pieces, so that you have pieces with 10mg each to use.

The chocolate flavor is average, somewhere around a Hershey bar flavor, but with a strong mint flavor. If you don’t like mint this is not the bar for you, as the mint flavor lingers a long time after the chocolate dissolves. I like mint so I don’t find it unpleasant or too strong of a mint flavor. Also the mint flavor helps mask any “mediciny” flavor that some edibles with high THC content have.

Dabba Mint Choc Front bar

After breaking one of the five serving pieces into four, I took one piece or approximately 10mg. I took mine in the late mid afternoon, on a mostly empty stomach and with some caffeine. Within an hour I was experiencing all of the effects I would expect from a strong Sativa edible – energy and focus, a slight reduction in coordination and heightened senses. I didn’t feel any of the heavy head, couch lock or body relaxing effects I can experience with hybrid or Indica edibles. For my usual 10mg dose, I found the effects very strong, equal or greater than my go-to Sativa edible On The Rise.

I found them good for micro-dosing, where taking one-third of a small piece, equal to around 3mg, gave a similar effect to having a cup of coffee – a slight lift in energy and focus but nothing too strong.

I hate their website, which is cute for a desktop viewing, but does not work well on mobile devices. Also it does not seem responsive or compliant with accessibility practices for people with disabilities.

The company hasn’t updated their website since 2018 and there is very little information on it, so it’s unclear if they are still operating.

GummiCares Cannabis Gummy Sativa:AM Black Cherry Review

GummiCares makes a line of gummies that are Sativa, Indica or CBD specfic. I love that they provide specific types of products, as so many THC and CBD gummies are generic “hybrid” formulas and you don’t know what effect to expect.

GummiCares cannabis infused gummies black cherry flavor sativa:am formula 10mg dose package

GummiCares gummies single-dose pack of 10mg THC Sativa gummies has a single square gummy that is scored into four pieces, making it easy to have a microdose of 2.5mg THC. Most gumies come in 5mg or 10mg dose sizes that you have to guess to split up into smaller doses, so this is a great option if a microdose of 2.5mg is what you want. It’s also easy to take the whole thing if 10mg is your usual dose.

Consistency & Flavor

Unlike other gummies that are soft and supple, I found these gummies to be tough and pretty solid. The texture was like jello with too much gelatin in it – hard and chewy with a rubbery consistency.

GummiCares cannabis infused gummies sativa:am black cherry flavor

Back Cherry is not my favorite flavor and so I did not find the taste very pleasant. The cherry flavor is strong and mostly covers up the cannabis oil flavor, which is a plus if you don’t like the flavor of cannabis oil. I found the black cherry flavor artificial and it lingered in my mouth for a long time as an aftertaste, so I needed to drink something with a strong flavor to get rid of that taste.

The GummiCares ingredients are sugar, corn syrup, water, gelatin, citric acid, canola oil, ascorbic acid, cannabis extract, natural and artificial flavoring, as well as food colorings red 40 and blue 1. So this is not a vegetarian or vegan friendly product and it is not free from artificial flavors and colors.

Effects

As usual when trying a new gummy, always go with half of your normal dose and wait two hours to judge the effects before taking more. After taking a 5mg dose – half of my usual dose of 10mg – and having only mild effects, I knew I could try a whole dose.

I did my standard trial, which is to take the gummy on an empty stomach, then have some caffeine – usually a mocha or coffee – plus something with some fat in it for the cannabis to bind with. This way, if the effects are too strong I know I can take some CBD or eat something to reduce the effects.

I found the effects to be a stoned feeling with some energy and creativity. I didn’t experience the uplift in mood or the happy feeling I get with some Sativa edibles. This did feel like a high quality effect, not muddy or middle of the road like some lower quality edibles can be. There was a mild euphoria mixed in, with something of a spacey head effect. No Indica effects, like couch lock or feeling sleepy. I was able to enjoy getting some things done while listening to music.

The effects lasted about 3 hours and when I ate lunch that definitely had an impact, reducing the effects almost immediately. Within an hour they had worn off and I felt mildly sleepy. I was able to rally and go for a walk.

Overall this is a good mild Sativa edible that delivers the energetic and creative feelings you would expect. I have a tolerance for THC and edibles so I found these GummiCares mild, but someone with a low tolerance or who is new to edibles might find them strong. So as always, start low and go slow. I didn’t enjoy the flavor or the texture, so while I might not get these again, they are worth a try if you are looking for a Sativa edible.

Kanha Cannabis 20:1 CBD:THC Watermelon Gummies Review

Kanha cannabis infused watermelon CBD gummies contain a 20:1 ration of CBD to THC. Each piece has 9.5mg CBD and 0.5mg THC. There are 10 pieces making the package total 5mg THC and 95mg CBD.

These gummies are made with gelatin, so not vegetarian or vegan friendly, but they are gluten-free. They contain no food allergens like dairy, nuts or soy. Each piece has 23 calories so the whole bag only sets you back 230 calories.

Taste & Effects

The smell from the package is a very sour, citric acid smell that is so strong I struggled to find the watermelon smell. Each gummy is covered in a fine sugar coating that provides an initial sweet taste. Once that disappears, there is a medicinal and artificial taste I can’t put my finger on mixed in with the cannabis oil taste. That taste lasts for quite a while, transitioning to more of a fake cherry taste than a watermelon taste, I found. Not the most pleasant tasting cbd gummy I have had, but not the worst by a long shot.

The gummy was robust, taking a good five minutes to dissolve in the mouth. Normally that would be a good thing, but with the odd sour citric acid plus the cherry taste, it is not as delicious as I would like it to be. I am willing to overlook a less-than-wonderful taste when the edible delivers the effects I like and this is a good example.I took this one evening after coming home with some minor aches and pains to see how one does would impact my muscle soreness. I have had good results with CBD in the past for muscle aches, and I found these to be nicely effective.

With only 0.5mg of THC, I did not experience any of the effects from taking edibles that are higher in THC. Even when I take an edible with 5mg of THC, which is half my usual dose, I usually get some of the psychoactive THC effects. I found the Kanha gummies to have none of those effects. THC does work together with CBD, so I like that this cbd gummy product has a small amount of THC because it helps activate the CBD. I find these work better than products that only contain CBD. If you are looking for a cbd gummy edible with a good dose of CBD and and a small amount of THC to boost the CBD effects, this edible is a good choice.

I felt pain relief within an hour, my muscle soreness retreating into the background and making me much more comfortable. This is the kind of pain relief I look for in a CBD gummy product. Many products contain only CBD and no THC, which I find much less effective. Another time after a few hours of hard work in the yard my back and legs were aching, so I tried taking one gummy. The pain was more pronounced than other times and one gummy wasn’t enough to make a dent. After 90 minutes with no impact, I took half of a second gummy. After another hour, there was a noticeable effect, reducing my pain and letting me relax in comfort.

The package suggests taking between 1 and 3 doses. Since even 3 doses would have only 1.5mg of THC, you would have to be very sensitive to THC to feel any psychoactive effects. I can’t tell any difference between 2mg and 4mg of THC and rarely feel anything until I’m in the 5-7mg range, depending on the strength of the product.

Wrap Up

For a healthy dose of pain relief that includes a little THC to boost the effects, Kanha CBD gummies are a good choice. I don’t like the flavor very much, so I think there is room for improvement there, but overall a good choice if you are looking for the anti-inflammatory and other effects of a CBD gummy edible.
