Your Illinois Medical Cannabis Authority
More often than not, my job forces me to interact with people at their worst. So I’ve gotta warn you; there’s nothing funny about this one.
Last Saturday afternoon I get a call about an adult female causing a disturbance at a local TGI Fridays®. When I arrive on scene, I see a woman in her late 30s screaming at who I assume are her two adolescent daughters in the parking lot. I take the woman aside and ask her what the problem is and she tells me she’s arguing with her daughters because they were trying to run away, which didn’t make any sense. The woman reeked of booze and was clearly drunk.
The two kids told me that the woman is indeed their mother and that she was trying to make them blow into the Breath Alcohol Ignition Interlock Device (BAIID) installed on their mother’s car after a recent DWI. The restaurant manager on shift confirmed this and told me that the woman also had asked servers to blow into the device.

Flavor Profile: This product tastes very much like a piece of chocolate fudge with a mild caramel flavor. The cannabis component in this edible is very mild and not at all off-putting in any way. For those who are looking for an edible without a strong flavor of cannabis, this one delivers.
TIP: To learn all about terpenes, see the Terpenes Library page.
Dosage Taken for Review: One Fudgie 25mg
Effects: True to this cut of the LDS strain, the effects were relatively balanced and definitely reminiscent of the flower. The effects start out a little heavy on the cerebral side but soon migrate to the body as well. The level of potency was moderate (as opposed to mild or strong) and in line with a 25mg dose.
NOTE: To be equitable, effects and potency are assessed within the context of a 25mg dose only, not whether 25mg is therapeutically effective or not for the reviewer.
Potency Scale for Experienced Imbibers:
Time Elapsed Before Any Onset of Effects: 1 hr 10 min
Effects Peaked at: 2 hrs 30 min
Duration of Effects: 4 hrs
IMPORTANT: The effects, duration and peak times will vary from patient to patient, sometimes significantly. The effects described in this review will not necessarily always reflect the experiences of others.
Please be responsible when using edibles. The #1 reason for a bad experience is being impatient and over-medicating. For more information, see About Edibles and How to Safely Consume Them.
May Help With: Helped with mild nerve pain, stress and minor arthritic symptoms. May also address some forms of body pain, muscle pain and spasms, headaches, mood, and appetite (and more)
High marks for strain-specific expression, excellent cannabis masking and accurate potency for a 25mg dose.

The hardest part of the job is knowing that these kids probably won’t ever stand a chance.
And remember, the next time you turn around, turn around again ...'cause I’ll be there.
