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.

Kiva Camino Sparkling Pear CBD Cannabis Gummies Review

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.

Camino cannabis gummies come in a Social formula with a a Sparkling Pear flavor. The Social 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 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 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.

EdiPure Cannabis Sugar Drops Hard Sweets Review

Sugar Drops Hard Sweets with 10mg of THC per serving were this week’s newest edible in my local dispensary so I had to try them! These THC candies come ten in the container.

They are the largest cannabis suckers I’ve ever had. They are approximately one inch hearts. The reason why I mention their size is if you normally take a bigger dose, let’s say 40 mg, it’s going to take a long time to consume four, one inch hearts. Trust me.

These Sugar Drops slowly dissolve into a sand paper like texture. They are not smooth as they become smaller. However, they are great tasting suckers. Sweet Drops come in many flavors like lemon and green apple.

55 minutes after finishing my Sweet Drops I started to feel a slight buzz and the edibles’ calming effects started to relax me and lower my anxiety.

The heady buzz lasted for an hour and a half. The calming and relaxing benefits lasted through the night.

Sweet Drops Hard Candy are great tasting and their soothing effects are wonderful. I recommend this edible highly, especially for anxiety relief.

Happy Chews Tropical Delight Cannabis Taffy Review

Happy Chews Tropical Delight has 10mg of THC in a taffy like edible.

Whenever I visit a new dispensary I am on the lookout for new edibles to try. I normally pass over single dose products because I take a larger dose. At this new dispensary, the edible selection was tiny, so I bought some Happy Chews plus a couple of old favorites like Cheeba Chews and Wanna Gummies.

Inside the package of Happy Chews are two 5gm pieces for taffy. Although they were differently flavored, the they tasted the same. It was a salty, medicinal flavor, not fruity at all.

After eating the 10mg, I waited. And waited. I waited an hour and a half. The dose was too small for me to see any effects. Perhaps for someone who can use smaller doses, these edibles could be more useful.

So, from what I experienced, they taste odd and had no effects at all, it was kind of disappointing. I wouldn’t buy these again and I wouldn’t recommend them.

Mary’s Medicinals Transdermal Compound 1:1

Mary’s Medicinal Transdermal Compound has a 100mg blend of CBD, CBC and THC.

I went on a mountain drive with my husband at ended up in Silverthorne, a real ski town. Thinking that skiers have a lot of aches and pains, I thought this would be a perfect place to find effective CBD topicals. I stopped at High Country Healing and asked for suggestions on topical creams with CBD. Both of the friendly budtenders recommended Mary’s Medicinals. Although it was expensive, I bought it.

MARYS COMPOUNDThe container holds 28 grams of topical cream. It’s made with mango butter and beeswax making the compound more of a solid than a lotion. It doesn’t have a scent.

I have Dupuytren’s contracture – an arthritis – in both hands. In this situation, I am looking for pain relief, not to get high. Even though there is THC in the Compound, it won’t get you buzzed at all. I applied the product and massaged in the oils directly where I was feeling pain. After a half an hour, my hand was very soft and the Compound oils disappeared.

After 15 minutes, the palms of my hand were slightly tingly. After 30 minutes, I was almost pain free. Before I put on Mary’s Medicinals Transdermal Compound my pain level in my hand was at a 3-4, after an hour my pain level barely registered at a 1. It was enormously helpful in comparison to Motrin/Aleve. The pain relief lasted for almost three hours.

Mary’s Medicinals Transdermal Compound worked for me. I highly recommend it for anyone that is looking at CBD topicals. Although it is a little expensive at $50.00 per container in Colorado, a little goes a long way!

Kanha Cannabis Infused Sativa Cherry Gummies Review

Kanha cannabis infused Sativa THC gummies contain the usual 10mg dose of THC per gummy. There are 10 pieces for a package total of 100mg THC.

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

Taste & Effects

The smell from the package is a generic cherry smell. Each gummy is covered in a fine sugar coating that provides an initial sweet taste. Once that disappears, there is an artificial cherry taste, mixed with a slight cannabis oil taste. Like other Kanha gummies I’ve tried, they are artificial tasting but perfectly edible. I don’t like cherry flavor to begin with, and I don’t like artificial flavors, but these have a soft enough flavor that they taste like other cherry gummy candies.

Kanha Cannabis Infused Sativa Cherry Gummies

Kanha gummies are robust, taking a good five minutes to dissolve in the mouth. As with all new edibles, I took half of my usual dose the first time to judge how strong they are. My usual dose is 10mg of THC, so I started with one half of a gummy, with 5mg THC. I took it first one evening at home. I didn’t feel much of an effect, even after 2 1/2 hours. I tried again the next day at the full 10 mg dose. I could feel a slight uplift effect, But I did not experience the energy boost, creative charge or the focus I experience with other sativa edibles.

Kanha Cannabis Infused Sativa Cherry Gummies

I usually find 10mg of THC is a good dose for me, but for many folks 5mg gives them the effects they want. I tried these again several times at my usual dose and just didn’t get the effects that I wanted. It may be the strain or the hybrid that went into making the cannabis oil or this could’ve just been a mild batch. Either way these are great for people who are sensitive to THC or who get the effects they want from a lower dose.

Always start low and go slow with edibles and judge the impact for yourself, as we all react a little differently.

Wrap Up

I love it when edibles are labeled as Sativa or Indica to give folks a better idea of the effects to expect. Kanha Sativa THC Cherry gummies are a good choice. While I find the flavor just okay, some folks love cherry. Overall a good choice if you are looking for mild effects in a Sativa THC gummy edible.
