Kaneh Co Cannabis Chocolate Paleo Bites Review

Kaneh Co’s cannabis-infused chocolate paleo bites are vegan, gluten-free, “Paleo friendly” and have no refined sugar. As one of the few vegan, lower-carb options, they are a welcome addition to the cannabis edibles world for folks who are eating in a more paleo- or keto-friendly way. They do contain tree nuts and soy, so be aware if you have allergies.

Kaneh Co Bites come in both the chocolate paleo and a superfood granola flavor, which is also vegan and gluten free. Both have 10mg of THC per bite and each bag contains 10 bites, for a total of 100mg THC per package.

My local dispensaries charges around $20 for a package, making it $2.00 for each 10mg serving of THC. The bag is a standard two-handed pull apart resealable pouch. The bites are not individually wrapped and they get hard and a little stale if not properly resealed and kept refrigerated.

Dosing & Flavor

The smell from the bag is a chocolatey cookie smell. The look like brownies with some chips and coconut on top. They have a medium texture that is more crunchy than soft to bite through.

The flavor is a chocolatey-nutty flavor that doesn’t have any bad aftertaste. they taste of natural ingredients with no artificial flavor taste.

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 Kaneh Co chocolate paleo bites are easy to cut in half to give a 5mg THC dose. Even being experienced with edibles and with a usual dose of 10mg of THC, I always began with a 5mg THC dose since you never know how your body will react with new cannabis edibles. After having only light effects for that trial run, I then moved to my usual dose of a full bite with 10mg.

These edibles are not labeled as Sativa or Indica, so I wasn’t sure what type of effects to expect. As with many edibles, I’d love Kaneh Co to come out with Sativa or Indica type-specific or even strain-specific edibles and I know the challenges that can come with doing that.

Effects

The effects I experienced were what I would expect from a mix of hybrid cannabis strains, part mental and part physical. I found these bites provided a mild physical relaxation without too much of a “stoned” feeling or the lethargic “couch-lock” that some Indicas can create. It is also not an energetic or caffeinated effect as some Sativa strains can provide. I did find them mentally stimulating and created an elevated mood, which combined well with the relaxed physical impacts to help me get some things done around the house without being too spaced out to accomplish anything.

For me, these are perfect fo the afternoon when you want to relax but still may have things you want to get done. They definitely have a good strength level, so I wouldn’t want to do anything complex or important, I would feel too impaired to really be professional or get any high quality work done. That said, I did find the effects supported creativity, so I could see doing creative work on these edibles, as long as a relaxed pace was appropriate – I wouldn’t blow glass on these, for example.

An excellent choice if you’re looking for natural ingredients, a vegan, gluten free, or paleo- and keto-friendly cannabis edible. These nutty chocolate bites satisfy the sweet tooth without adding extra sugar and create a balanced effect. A relaxed, creative elevation experience in a healthy package.

Kin Slips Cannabis Infused Sublingual Strips Review

These “slips” remind me of those Listerine strips that were so popular years ago, that allowed you to use mouth wash on the go by just dissolving the strip in your mouth. In a similar fashion, Kin Slips allow you to discretely pop a strip into your mouth and let it dissolve.

The slips come in three formulas – uplifting with sativa type effects (Cloud Buster), relaxing with indica effects (Nice Dream) and a CBD-rich mixture (Park Life) formula. We appreciate that they indicate the effects they are formulated to produce, as so many edibles give no indication.

Nice Dream Slips Front Face
Nice Dream Slips Back

While the strips are certainly convenient and discreet, they are possibly the worst tasting edible we have ever had. Despite the attempt at flavoring, as these dissolve there is a tiny hint of flavoring but it is overpowered by an unpleasant chalky, medicinal taste. Even the flavoring tastes artificial. Even with drinking something to mask the taste, when using these before bed it is not unusual to still have the nasty aftertaste in your mouth the next morning.

Nice Dream Slips Unboxed

We find them quite strong, part of which is likely related to taking them under the tongue. For using the Nice Dream to help fall asleep and stay asleep, often half of one is enough to feel the effects. Nice Dream is on our short list when we need help with sleep.

KinSlips have a good strength, convenient, discreet and are specially formulated to produce specific effects, all of which which are big pluses. The taste is a big drawback for us, since there are so many other better tasting cannabis edibles available

Space Gem Sour & Sweet Cannabis Spacedrops Review

Space Gems are gumdrop-style candies made in Humboldt County, California with ice water hash. The box contains 6 candies that each contain 10mg of THC, a total of 60mg for the box.

They are vegan, which is still hard to find in gummy or gum drop edibles, a big plus for everyone who wants to reduce their impact on animals and the planet.

They do not come in Indica or Sativa styles, but they come in Sweet or Sour “Spacedrops”. They are clearly marked with a suggested 10mg serving size of one “drop”, something we always appreciate in our edibles.

Texture and Taste

SPace Gem Sweet Inside

They do look like little sparkling gems in the box. They have a gummy-like taste and a gumdrop-like texture, with sugar covering a squishy square. The texture is exactly what you would expect with a gum drop. Both taste quite good, the Sour flavor brings an extra sour and the Sweet is not too cloying with a pleasant sweetness.

Effects

Since they are made from hash we assumed there would be a hash-like effect of a heavy head, with a strong pull to the couch and to inaction. I was surprised that the effect seemed pretty well balanced between sativa and indica effects, with the focus and some energy while still relaxed. I never felt “over revved up” or that over-caffeinated feeling you can get with strong sativa edibles. I definitely experienced the heightened senses, including the munchies.

A very good tasting handmade vegan edible, mostly relaxing effects with some focus and a little energy. Enjoy a cruelty-free edible with no animal products!

JMeds Cannabis Quoobs Lozenges Review

JMeds’ “Quoobs” lozenges are cannabis-infused hard candies made in both a Sativa and an Indica formula. They come 5 lozenges to a package, each labeled with the tested potency per serving. The testing sample we used had a total of 36.5mg of THC in the package. These are potent edibles.

Dosing & Flavor

The dosing label on the package indicates that there are 7.3 mg of THC and .23 mg of CBD per serving. JMeds uses the whole plant extration method, making their cannabis edibles potent. I usually take a 10mg dose of edibles, yet this 7.3 mg dose gave me effects similar to a higher dose. So use these with caution if you are sensitive to thc. Even if you are experienced, know that a smaller dose of JMeds lozenges might be plenty.

Ingredients are primarily natural except for the artificial food coloring. The ingredients list includes cane sugar, cornsyrup, water, cannabis and organic flavor. A bonus for these edibles is that they don’t contain gelatin or any animal products, so they are cruelty free and an option for vegetarians and vegans. At 100 calories per serving they are not low calorie but not crazy high in calories either.

One challenge with hard candies like these is that they are difficult to cut into smaller pieces. If your preferred dose is 5mg, it is hard to break the candy into exactly half. If you decide to try this edible product, be sure you know what effects a 10mg dose of THC has on you. This is not a good choice for people who are new to edibles or trying them for the first time, since you want to start with a lower dose than 10mg until you know your tolerance. Plus these are more potent than other edibles, so as always, start low and go slow.

The flavor is a pretty generic fruit flavor that tastes mildly like strawberry. It does a good job of blending the THC cannabis oil flavor and there is no artificial aftertaste that you get with some artifically flavored edibles.

Effects

I find these to be nicely powerful, giving me a strong but not overpowering high at a dose about 70% of my normal dose. The Sativa formula does have some of the effects I expect from Sativa including focus, concentration, energy and heightened senses.

I was able to function well and get things done, I was not too spacey or dreamy to concentrate. I did not feel an uplift in mood but there was definitely a motivating energy as part of the effects I experienced.

Same with the Indica, the expected effects of a more body centered effect, relaxing and anti-anxiety.

Conclusion

I love the quality of the cannabis in JMeds. I like that I can get the effects I desire from a smaller dose than usual thanks to the way the cannabis is processed. While I am not in love with the flavor, there is nothing that puts me off and I like that there are no artificial flavors used.

These are a great choice for folks who can tolerate potent cannabis-infused edibles. If you are looking for a product that is cruelty-free, dairy free or gluten free, this is a good choice for you. Overall a very good edible product.

Medicine Box Cannabis Infused Goo Drops Chocolate Truffles Review

medicine box truffles boxes

Medicine Box makes one of my favorite edibles, the nutty and potent medicine bar. They also make these wonderful chocolate truffles in various flavors and strains.

All of the Medicine Box truffles are made with the Indica-dominant Goo strain of cannabis. This strain is primarily meant to help with relaxing, easing anxiety and helping with sleep. Leafly describes Goo as “an 80% indica strain that mixes a sweet-tasting Blueberry with the hashy, resinous Hindu Kush. Deep physical relaxation is coupled with slight cerebral energy”.

Medicine Box truffles peanut butter circle

Flavor & Dosing

We tried the Peanut Butter Banana Goo truffle. It has a good chocolate flavor and some crunchy nut pieces for a nice texture. The cannabis taste is not overwhelming, it mixes nicely with the peanut buttery flavor. I wish the banana flavor was stronger, but that is a hard flavor to make strong without going artificial.

Each box contains 2 pieces of chocolate, each wrapped in foil. Each piece is 20mg and my usual dose is 10mg. With new edibles we always start out with half our usual dose, so I started with 5mg. I definitely noticed some relaxation and a body effect like I would expect from an Indica strain like Goo. After I was satisfied that 5mg wasn’t too strong, the next time I used 10mg.

Effects

When I first took a full 10mg dose I was already a little tired and within an hour I fell asleep on the couch, which is unusual for me. I woke an hour later a little groggy but was able to give the dog a spin in the yard and get ready for bed. I was glad when I got in bed and went to sleep in short order. I found these great for help with getting asleep and staying asleep. In the morning I feel refreshed and not groggy.

I am sensitive to Indica effects naturally, so these Goo truffles may be effecting me in a stronger way than someone with higher tolerance. They are also nicely strong, so do approach using them with caution and start slow. Try a quarter of one piece and wait 2 hours to see what the effects are for you.

I love the Medicine Bar products because they are strain specific and that lets me know exactly what to expect from my edibles – something you don’t get with generic “hybrid” edibles. These are in regular rotation for me.

Suck It Strawberry Lemonade Cannabis 2.5mg Low Dose Sweets to Suck Review

Alton’s review of Suck It! Sweets to Suck inspired me to sample this cannabis edible! Since his and my preferred THC dosing are so different (I use a much higher dose than Alton), I thought users with a higher tolerance would appreciate a review on a small THC dose product like this, which contains 2.5mg of THC per serving.

Canyon Suck It Strawberry Lemonade Low Dose Cannabis Infused Sweets Round Package

Suck It Strawberry Lemonade Sweets to Suck is a great option for folks that are brand new to edibles or are micro dosing enthusiasts. The reason that I suggest these groups is becuase each square piece of candy only has 2.5mg of THC which is one quarter of the standard dose of 10mg .

I take a larger dose of THC, usually about 40mg. So, I would need to ingest 16 pieces of Suck It Strawberry Lemonade Sweets to Suck to get high. That’s crazy. So, I ate 4 pieces equaling 10mg and tried micro dosing.

The Sweets to Suck are very heavy on the Strawberry flavor and very light on the lemonade side. I couldn’t pick up any medicinal taste. As far as suckers go, they are pleasant to eat and their size (smaller than a half an inch) was convenient to ingest multiple pieces at the same time.

I waited for a half an hour to feel any sign of effects. Nothing. Then I waited for an additional forty five minutes. I concentrated and really focused on feeling any effects that might be starting to evolve. I searched for a slight buzz. No luck.

I was unsuccessful at micro dosing. I never felt any effects. My mood was left unchanged. My energy was not altered. Nothing.

If you are an active cannabis user, Suck It Strawberry Lemonade Sweets to Suck is probably too small a dose to feel any effects, unless you eat a whole mouthful at a time. However, this is a great product for anyone who can micro dose successfully. New edible consumers can easily try small doses and not worry about overdoing it.

These suckers were unsuccessful for me. But, because of their discreet convenience, taste and small doses, I do recommend Suck It Strawberry Lemonade Sweets to Suck for beginners just staring to enjoy edibles.
