A BIG THANKS to everyone who supported me and visited my website in 2017! I"ll be cranking out a lot of new and useful content in 2018.
I've also added a Donations page to my website, which helps keep me going since I am my only source of funding. Click the link to find out exactly how it works (I track every penny on my site) and how you can donate.
FYI: Over the two weeks I'll be reviewing a variety of edibles, which I purchased with my generous December donations.
Form: Beverage, Hot Cocoa
Genotype: Indica-Dominant, not a strain-specific product
Purchased On: 12/28/2017
Manufactured On: 12/20/2017
Packaged On: 12/20/2017
Purchase Price: $10, + tax
NOTE: I do not identify dispensaries in my reviews. However, if you want to know the shop that's offering this pricing, I will provide it to anyone who requests it.
Ingredients & Nutritional Facts:
TIP: To learn how you can use this cannabinoids data to better your health, see the Cannabinoids Library.
Physical Characteristics: Looked exactly like typical non-cannabis, powered hot cocoa mix.
Flavor Profile: I enjoyed this hot cocoa. It was not too heavy on the cocoa and not too sweet either.
Dosage Taken: 1 serving, 30mg THC (10 oz cup of cocoa)
Time Elapsed Before Feeling Effects: 1 hour 00 minutes
Effects Peaked at: 2 hour 00 minutes
Total Duration of Effects: 3 hours 30 minutes
Effects: A borderline mild/moderate total body relaxation with some cerebral euphoria from start to finish.
NOTE: To be equitable, effects and potency are assessed within the context of a 30mg dose only, not whether 30mg is therapeutically strong enough or not for the reviewer.
Potency Scale for Experienced Imbibers:
The effects were definitely noticeable and long lasting, and a bit more potent than is typical for me with a 30mg dose.
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 mood and mild G.I. spasms. May also help with sleep, mild body aches, stress (and more)
An excellent medicated hot cocoa.

It appears 2018 is going to be more gut wrenching than last year, so I'm confident you're going to need my unbiased medical cannabis product assessments more than ever.
And remember, the next time you turn around, turn around again ...'cause I’ll be there.
