Edible Reviews

For this review, I returned to Dixie Elixirs, the brand behind the THC Elixir I recently reviewed. The brand also has a THC tincture for sale, called Synergy Dew Drops. I had never tried a tincture before, and I was definitely excited to explore the possibilities with this one. It has an even ratio of both THC and CBD in the product (also a first for me). It has just over 40 mg of each chemical, depending on the batch, with my tincture weighing in at around 47 mg of each.

I decided that this would be a fun little edible to try out on a hike. I usually experience some joint pain that holds me back while exploring the great outdoors, but thanks to the benefits of CBD oil contained in the tincture, I was actually able to get up the mountain much more easily than I normally can.

The Taste

I have to make a point to talk about the taste of this product. It’s the first sensation you get, and even though it’s a very short experience with this tincture, it’s definitely worth noting. You have to take it by using the dropper, which has the milliliters marked on it, to know how big of a drop you’re getting. Since the whole bottle has a relatively low amount of THC in it, I think it’s safe to just go for the biggest drop you can.


The dropper allows you to use as little – or as much – as you would like.

Once the tincture hit my tongue, I noticed just how strong that herby flavor could be, in such a small drop of CBD THC Tincture. I got a hint of the vanilla flavor – which added some very nice sweetness – but the main flavor was the bitter cannabis herb flavor. Some people don’t like this, but as a tincture, it’s what is to be expected, as all tinctures taste concentrated. They never taste like food, which you may know if you’ve taken any other kind of herbal tincture. This was actually pleasant, compared to other tinctures I had used in the past.

The Experience

As I started to feel it kick in, the high of it was very light. It was very much in the head at first, but being in the sun and moving around helped that high along, as it relaxed me. It stayed mostly in the background, creating a deeply appreciative feeling in me. I stared at the sights and things around me far too intently, but it was nice to do. I definitely saw this trail in a different light, due to the specific kind of cerebral high I was getting.

As I ascended the trail, I could feel my legs start to get a bit achy, but as the high started to set in more, I think the CBD effects did, too. Almost as soon as I noticed the ache, it slowly started to go away. My legs were not necessarily numb; the pain just started to fade on its own. This unexpected motivation got me to the end very easily. I usually never make it to the end without some real exhaustion, followed by the decision to push my legs to the limit, but this worked out nicely, as I felt no discomfort.

The timing for all of this was the most interesting part. It says right on the bottle that it will take only 20 minutes to kick in, which I thought was amazing. This was actually accurate, but it took longer than 20 minutes to get to the peak, where the full CBD effects kicked in, and so I was a little spaced-out during my hike. Once I was at the first-hour mark, I felt the CBD THC Tincture pretty much the rest of the day. Although I arrived at the familiar mountain around noon, the effects didn’t completely wear off until the sun went down. It was really nice to feel the tincture working in the background for that long, however, especially with the CBD there to help my joints, as well as prevent me from getting any sort of anxiety from the THC part.

Synergy Dew Drops combine THC and CBD in an elegant tincture.

Is It Worth It?

Of all the edibles I have tried, I really liked this one and would recommend it to anyone. Not many edibles are good for every person out there, but the CBD levels in this one make it so that this won’t be an overwhelming experience at all. You can look up Dixie Elixirs to find out where they have this CBD THC tincture for sale, or just scope out the best places to buy edibles online.

Cherry Limeade Elixir was a first for me: a cannabis drink. I’ve been trying all sorts of foods containing THC, but a liquid is different. Dosage, as always, is important, but it’s much easier to drink too much, straight out of a bottle, than it is to eat too much. I was a bit worried, starting off with this cool product, but it turns out that Dixie Edibles has everything covered, thanks to their clever bottle design. But first, let’s talk taste.

A “Humid” Taste

I couldn’t help but include this take after I heard it. I let my partner try some of the Elixir, and he described it as having a somewhat “humid” flavor. It made perfect sense to me: this refreshing drink tastes and smells almost as if you’re walking into an artificial cave at a zoo or aquarium, but without any of the gross smells or flavors – as a bonus, Dixie doesn’t include any artificial flavors or coloring, either.

Just refreshing, cannabis-infused cherry limeade in here!

It’s a very “cool” flavor as if all of your senses are being hydrated. I couldn’t say I’ve ever tasted anything quite like it. You could definitely taste the cannabis flavor, and the cherry limeade paired well with it. The sparkling aspect of it was very light, but it added to the refreshment. It was almost as if I was drinking a melted Icee that actually tasted great.

Overall, the taste was an A+, especially because that unique sensation caught me off guard. It’s definitely important not to chug this one for the flavor, however.

A Beautiful, Safety-Minded Bottle

To keep you from chugging, Dixie Edibles has a great design that makes dosing easy. The packaging itself is beautiful, taking on a unique shape, but the design is also intentional. Once you remove the cap, the Elixir has a half-full mark that is used to get the perfect dose. With this product, you will get you a 6mg THC dosage in 15ml of the drink. That is, of course, if you’re using the 100mg bottle; there’s also a 200mg bottle available, so be aware of what you’re buying.

The best part about the cap is that it’s extremely childproof. They designed this exclusive bottle to keep children from consuming THC as best as possible. I didn’t get too confused taking it off, as an adult, but I could see a child being unsure of the right way to tackle this bottle, due to its thoughtful design. You need to pull through the resistance to get it open, which is counterintuitive, but it makes it possible to keep this at home safely if you have a family. The bottle also provides a great seal, so your drink is fresh and sparkling every time.

Pretty to look at – yet inaccessible to children’s hands

The Experience

The bottle offers a mighty claim: it says you should start to feel the effects in 30 minutes. For all of the readers that have eaten edibles before, you might agree with me that this claim sounds a bit ambitious, right?

After I took my preferred dosage, I started making dinner, but I decided to take a bit longer with the process because I knew I was waiting for something to kick in before eating. It did kick in, after 45 minutes, but it wasn’t too intense. Over the next hour and a half, I felt a slow rise in the euphoria and disorienting effects.

At its height, I was feeling very lazy and very hungry, but totally comfortable on my couch. Weirdly enough, it felt as though I had been smoking flower instead of getting an ingested high. Luckily, I had snacks to help with the hunger and shows to binge on, so this was a perfect experience for me.

Despite how lethargic I was, I still felt awake. When it was bedtime, I just got in bed and lay there awake, thinking about plans and how to make them work. I didn’t get to bed for over an hour, but every way I laid was relaxing. It came as no surprise that this THC elixir was sativa-based, given how overactive my brain was, but I wasn’t upset about it. It was good “me” time, unlike the uncomfortable headspace bad edibles effects can leave users in.

This is definitely a great option for anyone looking for serious cerebral highs. It is an edible, so you wouldn’t expect it, but this really got my brain going more than anything else.

Dixie Edibles makes a number of different flavors, including Root Beer and Half & Half (think Arnold Palmer). If you’re curious, check out the stock of edibles at your local dispensary, or buy edibles online to see what your best buying options are.


Edible Reviews

Now that you’ve probably read a ton of reviews on Medical Edibles, it’s time we give our two cents on the broader range, in regards to the best cannabis edibles. You’ve probably read about some of these before, and there are also a few new ones that are worth noting. If you want to get the best of the best, this list is a solid place to get started, to get you through the workweek.

So many toys to choose from, check out our reviews below!

Wana Sativa Gummies

These gummies are one of the first ones I reviewed. Now, they have become a favorite that I’ll always keep stocked. These bricks are packed with THC and will have you feeling that strong euphoria for hours, without putting you out of commission. The taste is pretty herby (so be prepared), but other than that, the effects of this gummy are worth every penny and then some. As far as marijuana edible companies go, Wana is a pretty popular one, so they’re also relatively easy to find if you’re in an area that allows recreational or perhaps even medical use.   

Kiva Confections Chocolate Bars

Kiva is renowned for their great tasting chocolate, but also for their serious potency. I tried the blackberry dark chocolate flavor, and while it was extremely flavorful, it was also really heavy, but in a fun way. This chocolate is great for just sinking into the couch and watching TV. The taste of the herb in this chocolate is also a perfect fit. I’ve tried some of their other bars as well, and the flavors mix so well that you almost wish you could just buy plain-Jane chocolate in Kiva’s flavors, for days where you don’t need any special effects. For these, however, be careful not to eat too much.

Well worth it – we know

Cheeba Chews

If you’re big into edibles, then you’ve probably heard of this as one of the best cannabis edibles on the market. It is seriously potent, and I would not recommend eating a whole one on your first time around (or possibly even ever). When I got the product, I split mine into ten pieces. Eating one piece had me thoroughly feeling the effects all night, and it’s an intense ride. I got the sativa – as I always do – and I was feeling very energetic, more than I usually do with sativa products. The girl from the dispensary was dead-on, when she said, “You’re going to be up for awhile.”

Mountain High Suckers

These are fun because you get to taste the candy for a while, and if you’re a lollipop fan, Mountain High Suckers are definitely the best you’ll find. The way I received them, they were in a bag, without the sticks on them, in the cherry flavor. I just popped one in, and it stayed in my mouth for about an hour. Once it was done, I could feel myself on the come up, which was great. These are a fun treat to have around, and they’re also not too intense. You experience a generally nice feeling all around and the best casual edible high you can get. I would even suggest these to my mother (if she would give THC the time of day).

Coda Truffles

Last, but not least, is my absolute favorite on this list, the Coda truffles. I tried these on a hiking trip in Denver, and they provided one of the best edibles experiences I’ve ever had. The woman at the dispensary before the trail recommended them specifically for hiking and gave us a lot of helpful background information. There are definitely some gourmet marijuana edible companies in today’s market, and it showed in these delicacies. I tried the Hazelnut flavor, and I don’t think I’ve ever tasted non-edible chocolate that was quite this good. All my friends and I were astounded, and we all debated eating a second, but as the responsible parent-friend I am, I did not allow that, which was in our best interest.  

Once we started to feel these, the hike was instantly easier, and we all wanted to get to the top as fast as we could. Every breathtaking scene was even more breathtaking; I would be lying if I said I didn’t have to stop myself from crying when we ran into a full family of deer a few feet away from us. It was one of the most joyous highs I’ve ever had and definitely made that trip a highlight of the year. If you can get your hands on these, I encourage you to try them as soon as possible. The taste will have you hooked, but the experience will surpass it.

For a guy that wrote his first song at seven years old and joined his first band when he was just ten, there was no doubt he would go on to do great things in the music world. At almost eighty-five, Willie Nelson has become a celebrated American musician, as well as a popular singer, songwriter, author, poet, actor, and activist. And he’s not stopping there.

Not all Willie’s Reserve offers

Now you can add edibles connoisseur to the list, as his online store, Willie’s Reserve, is changing the edibles game. With the legalization of marijuana in so many states, these days, it is getting more difficult to find edibles backed by a reputable organization. Willie’s exclusive products solve that problem, by including a growing line of unique hard candies and satisfying chocolates that incorporate impressive ingredients. These ingredients combine good health choices with mind-relaxing compounds that just may take you to tasty new heights.

Hard is Easy

Instead of non-organic, sugary, dye-laden gummies, Willie’s Reserve offers natural, organic hard candy pleasure that not only offers you a sweet treat but which also elevates you from reality to a palatable, alternative universe. Each hard candy is GMO-free and contains pure CO2 cannabis distillate, with 10mg of THC, to get you on the road again.

Transporting flavors include:

  • Honeysuckle Hot – Sweet honey and spicy cayenne that explodes upon impact
  • Fresh Maple Blossom – Maple and herbal notes convey an innocent candy taste
  • Strawberry Limonene – A berry-citrus tang of childhood dreams

Sometimes, a brand is better than an unknown wannabe, and Willie’s Reserve steps up to drive this point home. With years of personal testing, Willie Nelson’s online store creates a safe space where consumers can enjoy perusing and ordering supreme product offerings, worthy of their celebrity namesake and status.

The Secret Behind the Chocolate

The old saying goes, “behind every great man, there’s a great woman” but today, it should go: “alongside every great woman, there is a great man.” Willie Nelson and his wife, Annie, fit the bill perfectly.

Married for over 25 years, these two have worked hand-in-hand raising two sons, handling a successful music career, and now, creating some serious chocolate edibles that go beyond conventional ingredients. Originally created as Annie’s “special treat,” to keep Willie company on the road, once friends and crew members tasted these delectable treats, they went from delectable items to coveted delicacies.

The not so secret ingredient? Cannabis. The secret ingredient? Love.

So, in addition to Willie Nelson weed and hard edibles, there are Annie’s handcrafted, chocolate-infused gourmet edibles, which combine big-time favorites with some interesting additions. These are the flavors you’ll be thinking about when you crave a cannabis delight:

  • Dark Chocolate
  • Almond Chocolate
  • Roasted Cacao Nibs
  • Maui Espresso Bean

Diving into Annie’s handcrafted creations also means investing in some body-enhancing ingredients, thanks to good ole’ Mother Nature. That means a bunch of healthy additions – as well as the good stuff (5mg THC per piece) – like:

  • Gluten-free, vegan dark chocolate
  • Highly nutritious coconut palm sugar
  • Organic vanilla
  • Himalayan pink sea salt

As a mom, wife, and confection chef, Annie Nelson sits front and center in Willie Nelson news today, bringing some serious treats to both her husband and his fans.

Giving Back

Willie’s Reserve is an online store of edibles, yet it also represents the progressive thinking and environmental awareness Willie has touted his whole life. This includes support for family farms, animal rights, Bio-Diesel tech, LGBT communities, democratic politics, and, his favorite, the legalization of marijuana.

Through his manufacturing of Willie Nelson weed, edibles, vaping products, and other gear, each product follows a circular model. Incorporating fair trade advocacy, green production, and earth-friendly ingredients, each Willie’s Reserve purchase supports a full spectrum of humane, environmentally sound causes. This is particularly relevant when it comes to the scores of farmers that spent many years underground; now, these farmers are finding the spotlight, thanks to a man who walked amongst them his entire life.

Some farmers that deserve mentioning include Bloom County, Oregon Grown Organics, South Park Pharma, Category One Botanicals, and Strong Roots. These top-of-the-line production facilities have garnered Willie’s support, due to superior craftsmanship, earth-friendly practices, and humane treatment of workers. It’s a good day when farmers are called upon, for the offerings and traditions they are most proud of, rather than simply working the land for corporate gain.

Buying high-grade flower herb, pure vape oil, delectable organic edibles, and sturdy gear from Willie’s Reserve delivers safe, supreme, environmentally sound products. More importantly, your purchase continues Willie’s lifelong philosophy of all-inclusion, which is, “my stash is your stash.”


Edible Reviews

Cannabella is a company that makes a wide variety of specialty cannabis products, from their CBD breath spray and dog treats to their famous lozenges. For the most part, they sit comfortably in the sweets territory. They make their own canna gummies version of the classic peach rings, as well as the beloved watermelon sours made famous by Sour Patch Kids. They also make dried fruits, lemon bars, brownies, and even honey, for the side of your sweet tooth that wants some THC as well. I recently tried their Sweet & Sour Gummies, which are a unique product, rather than finding a basis in previous candy offerings.

Make no mistake, this is a marijuana product!

Tastes Like Candy

You barely taste the cannabis; it feels like you just popped open a bag of sweets

The fun thing about these gummies is that they’re enjoyable right off the bat. It’s an edible THC Candy, but the emphasis is on the candy when you pop one of these in your mouth. It’s a perfectly sugary-sweet flavor, and the sour comes from the lemon and lime flavors that go into these vegan candies. I would say the flavor is somewhat similar to that of the lemon and lime Sour Patch Kids, but without the rough coating and not as tough to chew. When I was done with my serving, I had to stop myself from reaching back in for another.

What’s Inside

While the candy may not taste much like herb, it’s definitely in there, with around 8mg of THC in each square. That’s the only chemical though. You won’t find any CBD or CBN in there, so if you’re someone that needs a good amount of CBD for your anxiety, prepare to pair CBD oil with this product. As for the other ingredients, this is made with all-natural organic and vegan products.

The Experience

When I took the suggested dosage, I found myself waiting a long time for the effects to kick in. Usually, edibles kick in rather quickly for me, but this one took over two hours to finally start producing any effect. As with any edible, if you’re doing it the right way, you don’t want to just assume the high will never kick in, so I was patient. As soon as that euphoria started to kick in, I quickly forgot what it was like before I felt anything. The climb was quicker than most edibles I’ve ever tried. It’s usually an easy set-in, and you get used to it as it comes up. This was an acceleration straight into the THC.

It was intense, but it was not overwhelming. I will admit that every time I stood up, I was a bit wavy, but it didn’t make mobility hard at all. I felt more wobbly in my head than my body actually acted. I thought that everything coming out of my mouth would be a mess, but I was actually fairly articulate. This was a total cerebral high, and it was great.

Most edible THC gummies sit more in the body, as far as their effects go for me. However, this one had me in such a euphoric mental place that I was reminded that THC is technically a hallucinogen. My thoughts were all over the place, and my perception warped pretty much everything I sensed, but it was never scary or worrying; it was pure fun.

I thought I would get really hungry or just enjoy eating, but surprisingly, food didn’t come to mind at all during the experience. I had a light dinner before I took the gummy, expecting to pig out, but nope; I totally forgot to eat the snack I had planned out.  

How Was the Sleep After?

These canna gummies did keep me up a bit when it was time for bed. I was physically exhausted, but my mind still had places to wander. That was fine by me, though, as I was in the mood to rest with my thoughts. I live in a room with a bit of a draft, so every time I saw a cloth move, I definitely went straight to thinking that there was an animal around, but this made me curious, rather than worried.

When I finally did fall asleep, I didn’t wake up until my partner’s alarm went off, and I was definitely still feeling those canna gummies. It took me a bit to finally get up and to get ready for the day, but it wasn’t a major issue.

The bottom line? I would recommend this edible THC candy to anyone that’s trying to have a semi-trippy experience and can resist binging on a whole bag of them (unless you can handle it).


Edible Reviews

When I asked for Cheeba Chews at the dispensary, the girl at the counter gave me a little smile, before asking me which kind I wanted. They had the sativa, the CBD, the indica, and the hybrid. I went with the sativa, and she gave me a little chuckle and said, “just so you know, these are going to keep you up for a while.” I nodded and said, “I had a feeling.” It was about 8 p.m., but I was ready for the night to take me wherever it needed to go. That sounds pretty epic –  considering I spent most of the night on the couch – but the moniker of “strongest edible on the market,” is no joke, as Cheeba Chews pack a punch.

The Chew

When the woman handed the bag to me, I was very surprised that I was paying almost 20 dollars for one dose. I thought, wow; Cheeba Chews must really be that good. If you’re debating where to purchase your trial run, be sure to also research the best online vendors, to get the most bang for your buck.

Not to be ingested all at once!

When I got back to my house, upon further inspection of the bag, I realized that I almost made the worst mistake of my life. Literally. As someone who does experience anxiety from high amounts of THC, eating the whole thing would have wrecked me. The little chew is supposed to be cut up into 10 pieces. So please, if you’re like me, cut the individual Cheeba Chews up, before using.

Eating the Chew

On the package, there are instructions to put the chew in the freezer for 5 minutes, and then cut it up into 10 pieces. It may seem hard to perfectly portion something into 10 even pieces, but trust me, that direction was perfect. It’s almost intuitive, given how small the chew is. I found it extremely hard to screw up portioning the chew out, so don’t worry, if you think you don’t have the steadiest hands in the world.

Detailed instructions, in case you’ve partaken in other products prior to opening

After keeping it in the freezer for those 5 minutes, I cut it up, and popped my piece in, at around 9 p.m. The taste is like a tootsie roll, but much softer (and a much better taste, if you ask me). The cannabis flavor goes great with the combination of soft and sweet chocolate, and I totally would have eaten the whole thing, if I didn’t know any better.

Takes one back to kindergarten… until the high kicks in

The Come-Up

The package said to allow for 2 hours, as far as results. There was a serious warning to wait it out for those two hours, rather than eating another piece. What was nice was that I didn’t have to wait two hours. I could feel myself literally rising by 10 p.m. The package said there was just under 9mg of THC in the serving, which was much less than any other edible I had tried up until then, but that made no difference here. I was watching Criminal Minds on marathon, and I swear that the show blew my mind more than usual. As a Las Vegas resident, I was watching all of the episodes that take place in my city, but I experienced no paranoia, despite how terrifying the show can be. What was mind-blowing was how able I was to keep up with the plotlintes and events, and how energetically ready I felt to solve the cases.


Cannabis Training University - Master Certification

My thoughts were racing, but they were all positive; none of them were anxious or paranoid. I was simply sucked in to the show and really testing my puzzle-solving skills, to figure out how these stories would configure in a narrative format. The euphoria continued to rise higher and higher, surprisingly. Many times, I thought I had perhaps peaked. But by midnight, my eyes were quite red, and everything coming out of my mouth was jokes on jokes. I wasn’t released from this high until 2 a.m., but, even then, I still felt euphoric, if slightly less so. I only felt tired due to the amount of brain power I was using.

The Next Day

Once I finally crashed, after the exhilarating experience, I slept like a brick. When I woke up, I could still feel some trace effects, but it was such a relaxation at this point. Since it was a Sunday when I woke up, I was able to just lay there and review the night. Looking back, the cheeba chew was definitely the strongest edible I’ve ever taken. There was no trace of a bad high mixed in, either.

I kept the rest of the edible in my fridge, and remembering the importance of safely labeling edibles, I left a note on them, regarding the proper dosage, just in case my roommate decided to try some of the strongest edible on the market. If you’re up for a wild ride, Cheeba Chews are sure to give you a run for your money.


Edible Reviews, Medical Encyclopedia

There are many cannabis users that prefer to take their THC with edibles, rather than smoking. Luckily, there are many options to choose from, including some brand-new edibles for the new year! Here is a quick list of the trendiest and tastiest marijuana edibles to hit the market in 2018 and what to look for.

Changes in the Marijuana Edible Market to Look Out For

Unfortunately, cannabis gets a bad wrap, and there are a few cases can be negative, like when an edible gets confused as the normal snack. Marijuana edibles are meant to be enjoyed by those that actually want to feel their effects.

That’s why the packaging and labeling of marijuana edibles will be making a few improvements in 2018, by clearly labeling ganja goodies, to differentiate them from everyday snacks. Guidelines created under Prop 64 indicate that marijuana edibles:

  1. May not be designed to appeal to children, or easily confused with commercially sold candy or foods that do not contain marijuana.
  2. Are to be produced and sold with a standardized dosage of cannabinoids not to exceed ten (10) milligrams tetrahydrocannabinol per serving.
  3. Must be delineated or scored into standardized serving sizes, if the marijuana product contains more than one serving and is an edible marijuana product in solid form.
  4. Must be homogenized, to ensure uniform disbursement of cannabinoids throughout the product.
  5. Must be manufactured and sold under sanitation standards established by the Department of Public Health, in consultation with the bureau, for preparation, storage, handling and sale of food products.
  6. Must be provided to customers with sufficient information to enable the informed consumption of such products, including the potential effects of the marijuana product and directions as to how to consume the marijuana product, as necessary.

With those guidelines in place, you can understand exactly what you’re buying from your local store. As far as what to purchase, there are a few options to make sure you put on your bucket list for 2018.

The Five Best Marijuana Edibles this Year:

1. Reef Jerky from Badfish

If you’re looking for an edible that’s outside of the normal sweet treat, you can try Reef Jerky from Badfish, “California’s Favorite Extracts.” They took a more savory approach to marijuana edibles, giving everyone an edible that they can enjoy, including those with a saltier pallet!

2. Zen Brands Medicated Sour Straw

These edibles gummies add a sour twist to the classic take on cannabis candy, and they are highly effective. In fact, every sour strip is coated in sugar and infused with 375 mg of top-shelf THC extract. It’s the perfect super sweet treat!

3. Brewbudz Cannabis Infused Coffee and Tea

Have you ever brewed a hot chai latte in your Keurig and thought to yourself, “I wish I could add some canna oil to this,” for a little morning pick-me-up? Don’t worry; Brewbudz has got you covered! They’ve created Keurig-friendly, convenient ways to get your daily dose of cannabis, with infused coffee and tea pods. You might want to check with your boss before you bring one to work, though!

4. Topanga Harvest Mini Muffins

These little muffins have more punch than you might anticipate. By looking at the cute packaging and adorable miniature sizing, you might be tempted to eat more than you really need; eight bite-sized muffins containing 35 mg of THC. The only downfall about these tasty treats is that they’re so yummy you’ll want to eat more than the recommended serving size, so be careful with these cannabis treats.

5. Cannacookies from Venice Cookie Company
Do you have a sweet tooth of the chocolate variety? Many edibles try to quench that thirst for sugar and your urge for a healthy dose of THC, but no other company compares to the cannacookies offered at Venice Cookie Company. After opening in 2008, Venice has taken off and become the go-to brand for delicious – and powerful – cannabis sweets. A few of their edibles have even been reported to hold 1000 mg of THC. It’s definitely recommended that you nibble on these treats, rather than scarfing them down in one sitting!

Finding your perfect edible in 2018 can be a fun adventure, as you check out the tasty options the cannabis market has to offer. Just be sure to be safe when doing it! Make sure that your edibles are correctly labeled, to save you and your friends or family from any unfortunate circumstances.

Of all the edibles review products I’ve trialled, the Kiva Confections Blackberry Dark Chocolate Bar was the hardest to resist going beyond the suggested serving size. Kiva Confections has won many awards for their edibles, and, from the first bite, the taste backs up the many accolades. It’s extremely high quality chocolate, and the cannabis flavor is placed so perfectly that it mixes well with every other taste sensation, leading me to wish I could get this exact flavor from something that wouldn’t affect my daily functioning from binging on it.

Just before liftoff

The Eating Experience

At first glance, it’s obvious that this a high-quality product. The exterior packaging is nicely designed, and you open up the box to a sturdy wrapper around the bar. Depending on where you buy, your packaging could say different things on it, and the bar itself could look different.

On their website, you’ll see a lot of the bars portioned into four squares. The bar I got was split into 20 little bricks. I enjoyed that, because it meant I could very easily choose the serving size I was going for. With each brick clocking in at 5mg, it’s up to the user and their respective, known tolerance to decide how much to take. Worth noting is that a normal serving is 10mg, but, if you’re truly cautious, one 5mg brick might be enough.

After I ate my serving (and resisted eating the whole bar), I plopped myself onto the couch, ready to begin taking notes for my edibles review. Within 45 minutes, I felt the effects kicking in. By 9 p.m., I felt a body high that was very much creeping up on me. I was cemented to the couch, talking to my roommates, when I first started to notice it. My arms and legs felt a little bit more relaxed, as well as cumbersome.

Once my roommates had left, I noticed that the feeling in my body was rapidly growing, evolving into a very cerebral effect. Everything slowed down bodywise, and I was becoming very easily distracted by my surroundings. The feeling was very comfortable though, especially since I wasn’t expecting it to come on with such strength, and at such an accelerated pace.

The Peak

About three hours after eating the chocolate was when that I finally hit the peak of the experience. Everything was hilarious. Whatever was on TV was too much to handle, every meme that came up in my Facebook feed was saved to my phone and redistributed; I was in that very euphoric state, where everything becomes so much more humorous and relevant, and it was fun, while it lasted. I’ve also been dealing with a slight jaw pain, which also subsided mostly, during this peak. I was coming at this very recreationally, but surprisingly, the benefits extended to physical pain relief, too. I was very relaxed, aches were gone, and all worries were out the door for the day.


Once the effects started to wear off, I was very exhausted, but it was also well past my bedtime, so this wasn’t a groggy burn-out feeling; it was just time to sleep. As soon as my head hit the pillow, I slept like a baby, until my alarm broke me out of my slumber. I definitely felt a little groggy upon waking up, but I was quickly able to get out of bed. While the Kiva chocolate had not fully worn off, it was not impeding my day, which can’t be said of most products on the market.

Kiva’s Other Products

Other than the Blackberry Dark Chocolate Bar, Kiva Confections offers a variety of flavors in milk chocolate and dark chocolate options. The company also have bars specifically made with the THC count as the primary objective, as well as bars which target the balance of THC and CBD amounts, for those of us seeking the added benefits of CBD oil. They also have mini bars that are the size of a single square, if you’re just looking for that tiny taste.

Not Kiva’s only product, but an excellent one!

Beyond chocolate bars, Kiva Confections also sell tins of their Petra Mints, which have low doses of THC, but are perfect for on-the-go and low-dose usage. Kiva’s other big product, Terra Bites, are chocolate-covered espresso beans, a snack people have fallen in love with in the last decade, but now with cannabis as an added bonus.

Based on this bar, the quality of chocolate Kiva Confections uses is unmatched by other brands. Given how seriously they take product taste, as well as effects, their other products are unlikely to disappoint.

With the legalization of cannabis for recreational use in certain states, folks are discovering there are options to consume. Back in the day, this would mean brownies and other edibles for those who didn’t want to smoke, or weren’t used to the harshness of smoking marijuana. Thanks to legalization, individuals are finding they can have their candy and eat it to, with a little help from cannabis candy.

A variety of cannabis candy for your edibles pleasure

Deciphering the new brands is tricky at first. You don’t want to spend all your money on one candy, only to find out it’s not what you envisioned. But, you’re still looking for the best items that will satisfy your wants. That’s why we’ve listed the five most popular candies below to help you make the right decision.

Cheeba Chews for Tootsie Roll Lovers

An age-old favorite, now in marijuana edibles format!

Nothing compares with an old favorite like Tootsie Rolls. But what if you found a candy that was everything you wanted, along with the same chewy center you enjoyed when you were younger? Now you can have the same type of edible marijuana candy, along with the taste that delivers. Cheeba Chews are sold in Colorado, California, and Nevada.

Marijuana & Munchies Medicated Gummy Leaf for an Old-Fashioned Feeling

We all remember gummy candy from many years ago. Still popular today, it’s a favorite treat if you want something sweet, but don’t want to deal with the stickiness of chocolate. Today, that option extends to cannabis candy. Looking similar to miniature cannabis leaves, the gummies come in bright red, green, and orange, and pack a punch with 14.2mg of THC.

Dixie Mints Offer a Change of Pace

If you’re looking for a candy that does this, and offers THC, then Dixie Mints have you covered. The mints come in flavors that range from orange and traditional peppermint to the Synergy brand mixed berry. They are currently only for sale in Colorado, Nevada, and California.

Chill Pills for the Vegan

Need to chill out? No worries, these marijuana candies are animal and gluten-free

Since edible marijuana candy has natural properties, it stands to reason that many vegans and vegetarians want to try some.

Now, vegans can join in, thanks to Chill Pills. Both medical and recreational shops offer them for sale. The candy has 5 mg of THC. These little hard candies are perfect for carrying around, or just enjoying instead of chocolate, gummies, or another type of edible. They also offer the distinction of being gluten-free, meaning more folks can take part in enjoying them, regardless of their dietary restrictions and needs.

4.20 Minis

4.20 Minis are little chocolate bars that offer THC mixed inside the candy. Sold in packs, each pack offers 100mg, with each bar coming out to 10mg. Offered in flavors that range from milk chocolate to dark chocolate and sea salt, and many others, this is perfect for those who crave a sweet candy, but are looking for a decent amount of THC in there as well.

If little bags of chocolate aren’t your thing, purchase them by the bar. You’ll discover how simple it is to enjoy edible marijuana candy that fits your taste buds.

If you are still debating edibles vs smoking, consider cannabis candy. There are several different varieties to meet your taste buds. From gummy type candy to mints that soothe the stomach, and hard candy perfect for vegans, you’re sure to find something you enjoy.
