Mellow Madness Bar from Goodies By OCWeedReview – MaGooch Edible Review

Crafted from a combination of fruity and regular crispy rice cereals and held together with sweet marshmallows, the Mellow Madness Bar from Goodies By MaGooch is a fruity and flavorful variation on a classic medicated treat.  There is a delightful homemade charm to the bar, and it tasted much like my own attempts at baking edibles, before I moved to California and learned someone else will do it for me — and better.

Goodies By MaGooch presents a dense and chewy crispy rice cereal bar, good for a more portable medicating experience.  Because it contains 165 mg of THC, most moderate users will be able to get multiple doses out of a single edible.  While doing my review, I kept one in my laptop bag, pulling off pieces at around 40 mg at a time.  And since the Mellow Madness Bar is made with extra virgin olive oil, the same medicated olive oil that Goodies By MaGooch sells in dispensaries, it is a low fat replacement for edibles made with cannabutter.

A simple yet tasty treat, the Mellow Madness Bar packs plenty of relief into a single edible.  So it is no surprise that there is a noticeable cannabis smell when opening the package, which is thankfully double sealed in plastic wrap and a mylar bag.  Not a choice for those trying to avoid the cannabis flavor all together, I found the taste to be complementary, and it didn’t affect my medicating in any way than to remind me of the potency with which I am dealing.

The high from this edible is enlightening and, as the name suggests, mellow.  Effective for relaxation and the mitigation anxiety, the Mellow Madness bar is a wonderful distraction from today’s work-a-day world.  However, bouts of daydreaming may make this edible out of the reach of all day use, placing it in the category of physical and mental relief from your busy day.

Chronic Churro from Miss Mary Jane’s Edibles Review by OCWeedReview.Com

My mother loves whoopie pies.  I just learned this recently.  And having never seen her eat one, it confuses me.  Not because whoopie pies aren’t delicious; simply because I can’t picture it.  But why not?  Who wouldn’t love a frosting filled cake sandwich?  However, one thing I can confidently bet on is that she never had a whoopie pie like this one from Miss Mary Jane’s Edibles — and not just because it is medicated.  Essentially a cross between a whoopie pie and a churro, it combines the best of both treats.  You get to eat a fluffy whoopie pie without walking into a Walmart to buy one, and you get to enjoy the sugary cinnamon sweetness of a churro without spending the $96 to get into Disneyland.

These Chronic Churros are a classic whoopie pie, but with a cinnamon twist.  The light, cakey pieces are moist and fluffy, like a well made old fashioned doughnut, and are coated in a crystaline combination of cinnamon and sugar.  Sandwiched in between these sides is a soft, flavorful cinnamon-buttercream middle.  The whole deal is just a bit bigger than a macaron and is flatter, lighter, and more sweet.  I took to eating mine with a rich cup of coffee late in the day for the perfect flavor match of bold and candied.  Not having much of a sweet tooth myself, even I found it difficult to pass up an opportunity to take a break and enjoy a Chronic Churro.

With just under 70 mg THC and over 2 mg of CBD, these Chronic Churros make for a serious body high that leave you spacey, as an indica will.  An amature patient will want to split these whoopie pies into 5 or more doses, while more moderate users will be able to tackle half the edible or more.  The indica leaning high is electric in the body buzz but keeps away from any over the top cerebral high.  Expect tons of physical relaxation and a lessening of tension in the shoulders and neck.  I medicated with one late in the afternoon after a long day of sativa dabs, and there was a full body euphoria that built as the mental sativa effects subsided.  I would strongly recommend these treats for moderate joint or muscle pain, as well as an effective sedative for PTSD or anxiety’s physical symptoms, without leaving you couch locked.

Trippin Treats The Bomb Banana Nut Bread Edible Review by OCWeedReview.Com

I prefer my bananas hard and green and still a bit sour.  By the time they are turning yellow and grow spots, I’m completely disinterested… unless we are talking about making them into banana bread.  That, my friend, is a horse of a different color.  Mashed to a pulp and mixed with nuts and sugar, suddenly they become irresistible to me.  So when I learned that Trippin Treats made a medicated banana bread, I was all in for a review.

There is a certain farmers’ market quality to Trippin Treats The Bomb Banana Nut Bread that I find endlessly appealing.  A firm believer of supporting local small business, these hand-made, small batch mini-loaves are as authentic as they come.  And like any homemade banana bread, Trippin Treats uses all natural ingredients and no preservatives.  This edible will undoubtedly get moldy if left out of the fridge, so proper storage must be a concern.

Each mini-loaf contains approximately 100 mg of cannabinoids.  This is enough potency for a moderate user to enjoy at least a couple of doses per loaf; low dose patients will be able to get more medication per edible.  Regardless of how much you consume, Tippin Treats banana bread is a delicious alternative to the typical edible.

I began one morning out on my patio with a few slices warmed and served with melted butter and paired with a hot tea for breakfast.  The next morning, I tossed 4 thin slices in an egg batter with cinnamon and nutmeg and fried them for some delicious medicated banana bread French toast.  For brunch the day after that, I ate my last slices with a smear of cinnamon/raisin cream cheese.  I literally couldn’t think of a bad way to eat Trippin’ Treats The Bomb Banana Nut bread, and neither will you.

Trippin Treats Cherry Pot Pie Edible Review by OCWeedReview.Com

Our first featured edible from Trippin’ Treats is this adorable little Cherry Pot Pie.  Fitting in the palm of my hand (I have big hands) and adorned with a pot leaf crust on top, these charming confections are a whimsical way to medicate and make excellent gifts or shared desserts among friends after dinner.

Although the term is over-used in today’s artisan obsessed world, Trippin’ Treats is truly a mom and pop operation in the best ways possible, and after nearly a decade in the industry, their family is still crafting handmade medicated desserts in small batches.  Because of their all natural ingredients and zero preservatives, refrigeration of these pies is a must and consumption is generally better sooner instead of later.

Similar to any homemade pie, Trippin’ Treat’s Pot Pies are flakey, sweet, and delicious.  I can’t deny a noticeable cannabis taste. But it blends so well with the cherry pie filling.  It proves itself a perfectly baked pairing for the marijuana — very saccharine and flavorful.  I can only assume the other flavors complement the cannabis just as well.

Each edible contains an estimated 100 mg.  However, in recognition of industry trends, lab tested numbers on the packaging are soon to follow in a labelling redesign for Trippin’ Treats.  But if the slight green tint to the crust means anything, there should be plenty of potency in these pies to share.  Or do as I did and split your pie between a nighttime snack and breakfast the next day.

The high from Trippin’ Treats’ Pot Pies takes practically no time to come on and continues to build over time until peaking several hours after consumption.  As with most edibles, the high starts with cleansing mood elevation and gentle relaxation before transitioning into a more potent form of physical relief, offering unquestionable support for symptoms like chronic joint pain, muscle soreness, and even insomnia when used late enough in the day.

530 Edibles Medicated Hard Candies Review Part 2 by OCWeedReview.Com

We loved these medicated hard candies from 530 Edibles the first time around, so when I caught up with the 530 Edibles gang at the Leafly Cannabis Cup pre-party and they said they had new flavors for us to try, I was ecstatic to get these hard candies back on the site.  We simply adored the simplicity and convenience of these edibles last time we had them.  In addition, all of the new flavors are sugar free, as is now my most beloved flavor from last time, the Sour Punch.

And just as with the 530 Edibles Sour Punch’s spooky similarity to the “bug juice” or fruit punch of my youth, all three new flavors in their line of hard candies, Tropical Chili Lime, Root Beer Float, and Orange Creme, remind me of specific drinks from my past, all duplicated nearly directly out of my memory.

Root Beer Float:  In my younger days, my family would spend the bulk of each summer down the Jersey shore.  This meant we spent countless hours sitting in traffic, only ever inching our way towards our destination — Seaside Heights.  Once off the Garden State Parkway, our situation would only devolve on the surface streets, and to ebb the rise of car-bound anger, we would stop at the tiny orange and brown A&W burger stand on Rt. 37 for hot dogs and root beer floats.  The creamy root beer and bubbly vanilla ice cream flavors that stick in my mind from those trips are solidified in these candies.

Tropical Chili Lime:  When I was in my graduate program, my roommate and I used to hop onto the Long Island Railroad on our days off and head into NYC for a good natured rumpus around the bars of the city.  During one particular trip on a Tuesday evening, we found ourselves in Greenwich Village on Bleeker Street among the bridge and tunnel crowd who were just off work and looking for release.  We ended up ducking into Senor Swanky’s for a rowdy night of drinking margaritas, chomping complimentary chips and salsa, and hitting on Italian women from Staten Island who were way too old for us.  And it is this experience that is mimicked in this Tropical Chili Lime flavor.  The sweet and sour lime and bitingly spicy chili conjure up Mexican breezes (or NYC humidity) and plenty of tequila.

Orange Creme: This final flavor is a more recent memory, rooted here in Southern California.  It is not uncommon to find me, nose to the grindstone, field testing products on the beaches between Newport and Balboa piers.  And when the work is done, I pop up to the Ruby’s at the end of the Balboa Pier for a Creamsicle shake and the sunset.  It is the same smooth orange flavor that is present in these Orange Creme hard candies, as calming and delicious as sundown at Ruby’s.

As with other 530 Edibles products, these hard candies come in two potency levels: 210 mg and 70 mg per tin.  As convenient as a tin of Altoids, and not nearly as big, they can be left in a laptop bag or purse and office or nightstand drawers for when needed most.  And like we boasted on the site before, their portability and discreet nature make them the most pragmatic edibles we’ve reviewed on the site.

Secrets Medicated Lollipops Edible Review by OCWeedReview.Com

There is a very specific scene in the show Weeds in which Nancy, desperate because MMJ dispensaries are cutting into her business, goes to seek advice from Doug, played brilliantly by Kevin Nealon.  When Nancy walks into his office, he pulls a medicated lollipop from his mouth and gleefully exclaims, “I’m getting high right now!”  To me, that solidified California as the holy land of cannabis — a place where creativity and innovation abounded in ways to medicate.  And when I arrived in Orange County and got my doctor’s recommendation, a lollipop was the first medible I wanted to try.

Unfortunately, my first experience left me wanting.  Generically branded and tasting like cannabis butter, it was disappointing as a first endeavor.  So when Secrets approached me to review their gourmet medicated lollipops, I jumped at the chance to get the experience I wanted, and Secrets delivered on all accounts.

The first thing that stood out to us about these lollipops was the packaging.  Delightfully simple in coordinating colors for each flavor, the personal touch of a hand tied bow makes these a possible addition to party gift bags or as hostess gifts or just as a special surprise for a friend.

Hard candies hold the crown for being one of the most discreet edibles on the market in my mind.  Secrets takes that characteristic and makes it their mantra.  With no smoke and no smell, patients who need to medicate in the crowd can do so with impunity thanks to these medicated lollipops.  And with 9 different flavors, there is plenty of variety to keep from getting bored.

Even if pushed, I’d be at a loss to name a single favorite flavor.  The strawberry is incredibly smooth.  The key lime is appropriately puckering.  The tangerine, sweetly acidic.  Each flavor distinct and exact.  There are even a cinnamon and a root beer flavor for those who prefer spice to fruit.

A major drawback to medicated hard candies is the bitter back-of-the-throat taste that only gets worse when potency is raised.  Secrets tackles this by carefully selecting and crafting their flavors to diminish this effect and maximize enjoyment.  This means that across their range of flavors, they can keep their steady 42 mg of THC without sacrificing taste.

And with the primarily sublingual uptake of the cannabinoids from lollipops, you don’t have to wait around for that 42 mg to kick in.  Starting happy and uplifting, as edibles tend to do, and eventually settling into a full body high that is both euphoric and physically comforting, these Secrets medicated lollipops are effective for a number of symptoms, ranging from depression and anxiety to chronic pain and nausea.

So while I’m sure I look as suspicious as Doug sucking on a lollipop in public, they remain one of the most portable and convenient edibles we’ve sampled for the site.  Kept in your bag, your desk, or even your pocket, they offer relief when you need it most — on the go.

Key Lime Pie Medicated Chocolate Bar from Sweet Green Confections Review by OCWeedReview.Com

When I stumbled across the Sweet Green Confections booth at the SoCal Cannabis Cup this year, the sun was at its highest and I was desperate for relief.  Then my oasis appeared in the form of medicated ice cream and shade from the sun.  After a bit of rest and some wonderful conversation that left me impressed with Sweet Green’s quality edibles and socially and environmentally responsible business philosophy, I was on my way with one of their medicated chocolate bars to review.

Although I was given a choice from across their range of flavors, including potato chip, cherries and marshmallow, spiced tangerine, and of course, the classic pan-fried bacon, those who follow the site know the only option was the key lime pie.  The real struggle came when I had to refrain from sampling it until after the photo shoot could be completed.  The packaging indulged me with promises of key limes and crushed graham crackers in a smooth white chocolate.  And when the photos were finally approved, it was time to eat.

Although I’m not normally a fan of white chocolate, here it is a nice neutrally sweet flavor for the namesake ingredients to build on.  The smattering of crushed graham cracker is enough to give the illusion of a crust, while the freshly tart lime accents the white chocolate.  Not overly sweet or lip puckeringly sour, these chocolates are the definition of artisanal crafting.

Sweet Green Confections’ mission in providing ethically sourced and deliciously natural ingredients in their edibles is a constant theme in this chocolate bar.  The chocolate is single origin and fair traded.  The cannabis used is tested for safety and potency by the Werc Shop.  Every edible is crafted with ingredients free of artificial flavors, colors, preservatives, and sweeteners.  And far from being content to stop there, Sweet Green’s kitchen is health department certified and their treats are made by award winning chocolatiers.  The packaging is even printed on 100% recycled paper to ensure the edible in your hand is the most responsible it can be.

Each candy bar from Sweet Green Confections contains 180 mg of THC, which I mathed out to 7.5 per segment.  This is a nice base dose for beginner users, and more experienced users can multiply up from there.  With each row then equating to 30 mg, my prefered average dose of 60 mg made for a tasty and satisfying two rows of chocolate.

An uplifting and spirited high, the potent cerebral effects are only surpassed by its comforting and meltingly relaxing body buzz.  Never too overwhelming to function, even at higher doses, these edibles are a capable solution to discreet medicating.  And thanks to their myriad of effects, these tasty chocolates are a useful solution to a range of physical and psychosomatic symptoms.

Medicated Glazed Pecans from Auntie Dolores Edible Review by OCWeedReview.Com

I first met up with Auntie Dolores at last years Cannabis Cup to review a pack of their brownie bites and their caramel popcorn.  This year, they sampled us out some of their new glazed pecans, which were wildly popular with the crowd.  This is not a surprise to see.  Many forward thinking edibles companies like Auntie Dolores have been moving away from traditional chocolate and sugary sweets and introducing more savory snacks instead, a trend we love because it creates options for the health conscious and those with dietary restrictions.

These Auntie Dolores medicated glazed pecans are vegan, contain no gluten, and are low glycemic, putting them high on the list for the fit set.  They are mildly sweet from the organic coconut sugar, but there is a spicy kick from the cayenne pepper and chipotle in the throat.  A bold addition to baked goods, they are also delicious when added into stir-fry or chopped over salads.  Edibles this versatile even bring to mind a whole new concept of entertaining guests.  Replacing alcohol at a dinner party, these pecans can be left out as an appetizer or offered as an ingredient in the meal.  Even after dinner activities like cards and board games can be vastly improved with a handful of Auntie Dolores medicated pecans.

And at 100 mg per bag, a recommended 10 doses at 10 mg each, there is plenty of potency in these packages for most users to share with others or break into multiple personal doses.  Auntie Dolores also uses CO2 extracted oil from a combination of both indica and sativa strains for a full range of effects — great for those of us who seek to treat multiple symptoms at once or prefer an all encompassing high.  Plus, because each pecan only has a handful of milligrams of cannabinoids, it is a snap to closely tailor your medicating.

Whether eaten alone or mixed into your meal, all at once or little by little, shared or hoarded to yourself, these medicated glazed pecans are one of the most versatile products on the market today and are just part of the new lineup of edibles from Auntie Dolores.

7 Layer Bar from 530 Edibles Review

By OCWeedReview.Com

Everything about this energy packed 7 Layer Bar from 530 Edibles screams hiking, camping, and general outdoor adventures, perhaps something to be expected from a company based in Shasta Lake and near so many national forests.  Whether as a tasty treat before hitting the trails or tossed into the daypack for fuel on the go, this creation from 530 Edibles will keep you moving.

The 7 Layer Bar is as wholesome as it is because of its ingredients: including, graham cracker, oatmeal, butter, sweetened condensed milk, coconut, butterscotch chips, peanut butter chips, chocolate chips, almonds, and, of course, cannabis.  There are a few allergens in there, so those with limitations be aware.  Now, I don’t know about layers, but this bar had so many different things going on that literally every bite was a different combination of flavors.  Just like how you can never enter the same river twice, you will never have the same bite of this treat.  Each munch, even each section of the bar, is a completely unique taste experience.  The graham cracker, peanut butter, and oatmeal make a fantastic base for the chips, almonds, and shredded coconut to be piled on top.  Those looking for taste in their edibles will not want to miss this outing from 530 Edibles.

The edible I reviewed had 70 mg of THC, but it also comes in 210 mg.  As filling a treat as this is, the 70 mg could easily be broken into more than one serving and still be satisfying.  Though for a moderate user, when eaten whole, it could be a great breakfast for a different type of wake n’ bake experience.  The high is, as always with 530 Edibles, uplifting and social.  Their treats never hold me back or couchlock me.  On the contrary, I am often moving: working, walking around town, at the gym.  As a daily medication, I know I can rely on 530 Edibles to keep me on my feet, while still treating both my arthritis and depression.

Mama Kush Edibles Medicated Beef Jerky Review by OCWeedReview.Com

It was rather serendipitous that I ran into the Mama Kush gang at this year’s Cannabis Cup in LA.  Coming out of a panel discussion sponsored by Women Grow, I walked smack into a wall of Mama Kush t-shirts.  I got to talking with Mama Kush herself, and next thing I know, I have a couple packs of their medicated jerky in my hand to review.

Mama Kush Edibles starts with high quality steak when making their beef jerky, not the stringy, fibrous meat other companies use that reminds me of my college roommate’s venison jerky with deer hair still in it.   This is expertly cured and seasoned with a sweet and flavorful teriyaki sauce and a sprinkling of sesame seeds, and then kicked up with some cracked black pepper.  I found them to be as tender and delicious as any beef jerky I’ve had.

When the weather starts to warm, I begin to prepare my hiking and camping gear, and this includes storing up solid pieces of high protein snackery.  Already, this medicated jerky has found its way into my daypack for trips to Joshua Tree and the Cleveland National Forest.  And because it doesn’t require special storage, Mama Kush can go with you on longer expeditions, too.

Though I found it to be an absolute blessing during a day out on the hiking trails to soothe worked muscles, Mama Kush’s medicated jerky has almost 11 mg of CBD to 75 mg of THC, meaning there is lots of physical sedation and anti-anxiety effects.  Watching the ballgame, lazing in the hammock, walking around downtown, it will all be enhanced by the CBD’s relaxation, while the relief from soreness and stress will help you enjoy your day.

Korova Chocolate Peanut Butter Bar Edible Review | OCWeedReview.Com

New from Korova’s Organik line, their Chocolate Peanut Butter Bar is bringing Korova’s “unrivaled potency” to a healthy new level.  Being driven by a much more health conscious patient, these Organik edibles are geared for the hiking, biking, Bikram yoga set and offer a much more reasonable approach to using edibles for daily medicating.

To craft these new wholesome treats, Korova started by sourcing all organic ingredients that are naturally vegan and gluten free, including oats, coconut flour, brown rice cereal, and sea salt.  Korova’s new Chocolate Peanut Butter Bar is also low in sugar thanks to their use of an agave based sweetener.  However, their effort for a more healthy edible doesn’t stop there.  The solventless extract in their infused coconut oil is tested for mold, fungus, and pesticides, along with potency — an extra step that demonstrates Korova’s mission for a safe and pure edible.

I loved the light consistency of this edible.  Thanks to the brown rice cereal, these Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars are airy and crispy and won’t weigh you down.  However, the peanut butter and oats are hearty enough to help energize your activities.  The chocolate is a sweet afterthought, a thin layer across the top, instead of a thick saccharine cocoa barrier.

Korova’s edibles tend to get me into trouble because they are both tasty and potent.  Packed into each modestly sized treat are 300 mg THC and 3.6 mg of CBD: the equivalent of 6 grams of dried cannabis.  Dosing in baked goods is not exactly precise, especially when trying to eyeball it, but Korova suggests a split of 6 doses per bar or 50 mg per dose. Certainly a moderate dose for many users, rookies may want to use significantly less, breaking the suggested dosing at least in half.  Although the full weight of the effects take some time to kick in, there is no letdown to this high.  Instead, I found it to be sociable and giddy and increasingly uplifting.  For daily users, more modest doses can be a great companion for weekday chores, but be careful not to go overboard, lest you become the object of Korova’s moral — “You can always eat more, but you can’t eat less.”

Key Lime Bar from 530 Edibles Review | OC Weed Review.Com

My first real interaction with key lime pie came from Red Lobster of all places when it was the restaurant of choice for childhood birthdays.  Later in grad school, I became hooked when I would travel out to Montauk Point at the tip of Long Island to the beachside crab shacks and clam bars and follow each meal with a Red Stripe and a slice of key lime pie.  Ever since, when the sun is beaming and the breeze is warm and salty, I begin instinctively to seek out a beachfront bar and my favorite tart key lime treat.

530 Edibles’ Key Lime Bar is a re-imagining of the pie I’ve come to love, with a sweet cracker crust and sour lime cake, topped with a generous dusting of powdered sugar.  Not unlike the dessert I often crave, 530 Edibles has added their own pucker lipped twist, making for an incredibly tasty experience.

The first thing you notice about the Key Lime Bar is its hue.  With a color like this, it would be a perfect substitute for a non-alcoholic St. Patty’s celebration.  Each bite of this generously sized edible was melt-in-mouth moist and soft.  Best if stored in the fridge, our sample kept through Cannabis Cup weekend in the trunk of a car, for over a week in the office, and then through a photo session under the lights, and was still in great shape when I finally had a chance to eat it.  With size enough to split into 2 or more doses or to share, I ate it over a single serving for breakfast, and it was altogether filling.

Testing in at 70 mg of THC, these edibles give off a fun little high.  Giggly and goofy, it still has dreamy elements with no lack of haze.  Like my favorite thatch-roofed shore side bars, it is sunny and inviting, but if you stay too long, you might end up asleep on the dunes.

Available from 530 Collective, Shasta Lake, or Strictly OG in LA.

530 Edibles Raspberry Bar Review | OC Weed Review

I spent a summer in Princeton between terms in my graduate program.  I wasn’t employed and, technically, homeless, but I had a stash of grant money from my college and nothing to do but relax and read.  Each morning, I’d stop off at the local coffee house and buy a coffee and pastry.  I would then make my way over to Palmer Square off Nassau Street and settle under one of the leafy elms that stood sentry and provided shade for the benches below.  There, I’d pop the top off my coffee to let it cool,  unwrap the cellophane from my breakfast, and open my book.  Those were some of my happiest days, and everything about this medicated raspberry bar from 530 Edibles reminds me of them.

I was a bit apprehensive about testing 530 Edibles’ medicated raspberry bar on the morning that I did.  I wasn’t particularly hungry, and a heavy, sugary sweet dessert didn’t sound appealing at the time.  However, this raspberry bar was light and flavorful, and not overly saccharine at all.  It was the perfect pairing with my coffee, and I easily finished it all.

The bar has a simple crust, a tart raspberry middle, and light topping drizzled gently with chocolate.  It is a modest, well made piece, yet incredibly tasty.  Similar in just about every way to the same type of treat you would get in your treasured coffee shop, which fits into my daily routine perfectly.

Although 530 Edibles also come in 210 mg, which are more likely to be split into smaller doses, I sampled the 70 mg strength bar, a good potency for a moderate to heavy user.  And every little bit of the 70 mg came through in the high.  There was no denying I was medicated.  However, it was capable and not too stoney or locking: perfect as a day starter.  For a regular user like myself, getting to my desired medicated level can take some time and effort.  Beginning your day with an edible, of which I’ve gotten into the habit, can help you get a head start on the day.  After all, breakfast is the most important meal of the day.

Healthy High's Peanut Butter Bar With Chips Edible Review

Since I’ve begun reviewing edibles, I’ve sampled an outrageous variety of medicated treats — cookies, brownies, hot chocolate, gummy bears, chocolate bars, hot buttered popcorn, doughnuts, honey, fudge, ice cream, a Twinkie, cupcakes, and a chocolate fountain, just to name a few.  However, there is a motif to that list.  They are largely sugar loaded or fatty treats that, while ok for the occasional splurge, are quite unnecessary for daily use.  For those with chronic issues or high tolerance, such edibles, though tasty, simply aren’t practical.  However, as is proved to me time and again, good food doesn’t have to bad for you, and no where is this more evident than in Healthy High edibles.

This peanut butter oatmeal bar is outrageously flavorful.  With its sprinkling of chocolate chips, there is just enough sweet to complement its savory nuttiness.  Peanut butter has long been a favorite munchies food for me.  Often, a spoonful of Jiffy smooth is hanging out of my mouth post medicating session, so these may prove to be trouble.  But because they aren’t loaded with corn syrup, I can medicate with impunity.

Healthy High offers as wholesome a treat as you can find, medicated or otherwise.  In a world where it is ever more difficult to find a healthy snack, it is a comforting surprise to find such natural, organic ingredients in a medicated edible as are listed here: cannabis, peanuts, oats, coconut oil, brown sugar, sugar, flax seeds, vegan chocolate chips, pure vanilla, and sea salt.  And challenging the idea that you need overly saccharine sweets to cover the taste of cannabis, this potent treat hinted at nothing but peanut butter and oatmeal, throughout.

These peanut butter oatmeal bars are also quite filling, making them a great companion for excursions, whether they be in the urban jungle or one more verdant.  Convenient for all day medicating while on the go, with 2g of dried cannabis used in each bar, you’ll have relief to spare.  I took one bar with me to Joshua Tree, tucked into my day pack for medicating while on the trail.  While the indica high may slow you down at larger doses, it is superb for when when muscle exertion will be strenuous.  The high CBD count helps soothe your sore limbs, and the relaxing sense of wellbeing helps you connect with your environment.  Plus, because they don’t need to be refrigerated, you can take them with you on longer trips as well, knowing they will be there when you need them for healthy, convenient, and flavorful medicating.

Head over the Healthy High’s website for orders and to view more edibles.

When I was given one of Miss Mary Jane’s Bakeshop’s chocolate caramel cake pops, it was alluded that they would be fluffy, moist, and delicious.  But somehow being told doesn’t fully prepare you for the reality.  This cake pop is formed using a base of brilliantly velvet chocolate cake with an indulgent core of soft caramel filling.  Around all of this is the thinnest crispy crust of decadent chocolate, drizzled to perfection to complete the aesthetic effect.  There is a hint of cannabis to the taste.  But it is hard to mask completely.  That’s why chocolate is so often used in edibles–the complementing effect.  Rather than cover up the green flavor, the chocolate uses it to its benefit.

This particular medicated cake pop was made with Charlotte’s Web, a CBD rich strain first bred by the Stanley brothers from out of Colorado for Charlotte Figi, an 8 year old Dravet Syndrome patient who found relief from her seizures with the high CBD strain.  Miss Mary Jane’s Bakeshop obtained their Charlotte’s Web from Coastal Collective in Santa Ana, one of the only Southern California dispensaries to carry this prized genetic.

At nearly 60 mg of total cannabinoids, this edible produces an incredibly sedative high, making it a fantastic treatment for the physical symptoms of anxiety.  Since CBD counteracts the anxiety or “paranoia” effect created by THC, Charlotte’s Web provides relief rather than creating more problems.  There is an amazing physical relaxation, as pain melts away along with your stress.  Proponents of CBD rich products tout a lack of intoxication in the effects, making it great for those looking to avoid the traditional cannabis high.  There may not be an “intoxication”, but I found plenty of light,smooth social interaction due to the ease of tension.  This edible made me re-think the value of CBD, being a sativa fan myself.  As a sufferer of both pain and anxiety, this edible was an effective relief from my range of symptoms.  While some patients’ utilization of high THC for other medicating needs prevents them from being able to rely solely on CBD rich products, edibles like Miss Mary Jane’s Bakeshop’s chocolate caramel cake pop have plenty of pragmatic medicating uses.
