I was given a sample size of Zendo Cannabis infused almonds. The small package contained 2 almonds and the package said approximately 3 mg per almond. These almonds were named as the best edible of 2017 by High Times. They are all natural and gluten free. Zendo also makes infused coconut oil and peanut butter.
I prefer it when edibles tell me what strain of cannabis was used to make the edible, or at least what type of cannabis (Indica or Sativa or dominant hybrid). The coconut oil and peanut butter are both labeled as being made with “Hybrid Strains” without saying if those strains are sativa- or indica- dominant or indicating what strains they are using. I could find nothing on their website that indicates what type or strain is used for the almonds.
Taste & Effect
They come in two flavors – Honey Cocoa & Spicy Sea Salt. I had the spicy sea salt and I appreciated the spiciness since I love heat. The almonds had a dark colored coating. Neither the sample packaging nor the website say what the ingredients are, which is not helpful for folks with allergies or who are trying to avoid certain ingredients.
The almonds effected me the same way I would expect a 6mg dose to. My usual dose is 10mg so this had me feeling a mild buzz, with surprisingly strong munchies for such an otherwise mild relaxed feeling. I didn’t find much energy, creativity or uplifted mood from it, just a low level buzz. Fortunately it did not give too much of the effects I expect from Indica strains, like foggy head or couch lock.
Overall I was not very impressed with either the effect or the amount of information given regarding strain used and ingredients. The taste was fine but most people do not choose edibles on taste alone.
