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.
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.
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.
Note: These higher dose bars were available for medical users until the regulations changed around 2019. Dabba now only come in 100mg bars. They still make the mint and they also make a peanut butter banana and a raspberry dark chocolate flavor.
