NARRATION:

You blazers are gonna love this one. Last Friday I get this call that one of our own, who’s off-duty, is in distress. Male, twenty-eight; a rookie with the 6th district. I’m told not to run lights and sirens as it might “escalate the situation”.

I enter his place and this guy is curled up in a ball in the corner of his kitchen. Before I can say anything, the kid crawls over to me, hugs my legs and begs, “Please call rescue. I think I’m dead. I’m serious. I’m not breathing. Time is going by really, really, really slow.” I ask the obvious: “What are you on, son?” He readily admits to eating 4 medical-grade pot cookies that he confiscated from one of you so called 'patients'. He's sweating, shaking. He looks up and says, “I think they put something in the marijuana. I’m not kidding. They’re trying to kill me!”      

“Everything’s gonna be okay,” I assure him. I tell him we’re going to wait somewhere safe until rescue arrives. I’m able to coax him down into his dirt cellar. Once we get to the bottom of the stairs, I quickly handcuff him to the railing and whisper in his ear, “Son, now you’re gonna meet the devil himself.”

You should have seen the look on this kid’s face right before I turned off the lights and locked the door. And, I made sure rescue took their sweet time.

Physical Characteristics: A dark chocolate square approximately 1”W X 2”L X 1/4”D. The bar is topped with shards of salted toffee brittle and chopped pieces of hickory-smoked almonds.

Flavor Profile: The dark chocolate and toppings are high quality. The toffee brittle and nuts add a crunchy texture to the mix. The hickory smoke component is mild; not overwhelming at all. What really makes the flavor profile outstanding for this edible is its very subdued cannabis flavor. There is virtually no trace of any cannabis component, which is not an easy task to accomplish.   


TIP: To learn all about terpenes, see the Terpenes Library page. 

Dosage Taken: One Chocolate Square 10mg


Effects: The effects were mild but on-point for a 10mg dose. This edible provided a mostly cerebral-leaning experience with a mild body component. For this reviewer, the mostly cerebral effects were not balanced enough, though that is a subjective observation.  

Note: To be equitable, effects and potency are assessed within the context of a 10mg dose only, not whether 10mg is therapeutically strong enough or not for the reviewer.      


Potency Scale for Experienced Imbibers: 




Time Elapsed Before Any Onset of Effects: 1hr, 15min

Effects Peaked at: 1 hour 45 minutes

Duration of Effects: 3 hours

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: insomnia, mild-to-moderate body pain, some forms of nerve pain, muscle spasms, stress, anxiety (and more)

Rating: 4/5
Gourmet-level quality and exceptional cannabis masking in the flavor profile. Wish the product was strain-specific and included less cerebral effects.
