Officer Dick Downey's Pot Report
Your Illinois Medical Cannabis Authority
Case: Cannabis Honey 100mg (Edible)
File Date: 08/01/2016
Case No: 0031
Form: Raw honey infused with cannabis ‘rosin’, which is a solventless cannabis extract derived from heat and pressure.
IMPORTANT: This product can be considered a “hybrid” edible, which means that when you eat the honey “as-is” and allow it to linger in your mouth, some of the THC and other cannabinoids will absorb into the bloodstream through the mucous membranes in your mouth. You will most likely feel the effects from this initial absorption within 10-20 minutes. The majority of the honey is typically swallowed and eaten, metabolized in the liver and acts as a typical edible in terms of potency and 1-2 hours delay of effects.
Type: Indica-Dominant Hybrid
Genotype: Mostly Pineapple Chunk = Cheese X Pineapple
Cultivator: In Grown Farms (IGF)
Date Purchased: 07/29/2016
Packaging: The product is packaged in a round, large mouthed, plastic container with a screw-off safety cap
Weight & Cannabis Content: 35 grams (about 5 teaspoons) containing approximately 100mg of THC
Ingredients: Natural raw honey, cannabis rosin (a solventless cannabis extract)
Nutrition Facts: None listed
Delivery Method Used: There are many ways in which you can ingest this product. You can use it as you would any honey, such as on toast or in tea. For this review, the honey was taken straight without adding it to anything.
Cannabinoids Profile: THCa 0%; 2.81mg THC/1g of Honey OR about 100mg THC/35g Honey (entire container) ; CBDa 0%; CBD 0% (LK Pure Labs)
TIP: To learn how you can use this cannabinoids data to better your health, see the Cannabinoids Library page.
Physical Characteristics: Medium amber-gold colored, translucent, smooth raw honey. The consistency was relatively thick because of the honey’s raw state. The honey gives off a typical sweet-pollen honey odor up front with a mild cannabis aroma in the background.
Flavor Profile: While you can definitely taste the cannabis component in this honey, this reviewer loved the unique flavor profile that was created by combining raw honey and the Pineapple Chunk rosin. The result is very floral-musk raw honey and hash flavor injected with a mild tartness from the rosin that all coalesce nicely.
TIP: To learn all about Terpenes, see the Terpenes Library page.
Dosage Taken: A heaping 1 teaspoon of honey or approximately 9-10g, which included about 25 mg of THC
Effects: The effects were mostly cerebral and borderline ‘moderate’ in potency. The high did not promote any sativa raciness or uneasiness. It was a pleasing, energetic experience that also provided some mild body relaxation.
Potency Scale for Experienced Imbibers:
Time Elapsed Before Any Onset of Effects: Felt a sublingual high after 15 minutes had elapsed. Felt the typical edible effects activate at about the 1 hour mark.
Peak of Effects: At 2 hours
Duration of Effects: 3 hours for a 25mg THC dose
IMPORTANT: The effects, duration and peak times may 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, please see About Edibles and How to Safely Consume Them.
May Help With: Helped with mood, depression, stress and fatigue. May also help some forms of mild body and nerve pain (and more)
