Medi Munchies UK – A medical cannabis edible review

Submitted anonymously by a Brighton Cannabis Club Member.

As someone who suffers with severe depression and diagnosed high functioning Aspergers, IBS and Endometriosis not so long ago; I’ve never got on with migraine medication, pain killers or anti-depressants.

My constant battle is relaxing enough to be able to sleep for more than 3 hrs at a time or dealing with agonising pain throughout the day.

A friend referred me to Medi Munchies UK; as I’m not a Cannabis smoker I was quite apprehensive, but after speaking with the Medi Munchies team on what to expect from a bag of Cannibos (175mg in a bag). The sweets vary from 5mg to 30mg of active THC in each individual sweet depending on the size of the gummie. With my first bag, I ate one bear and I could deal with my thoughts, a thought at a time; not a thousand thoughts a second. 2 bears I was in considerably less pain and I slept for 8 hours! The Cannibos have no sluggish feeling the next day like you get with Zopiclone and no metallic flavour in your saliva!

The bears texture and flavours (cola, cherry and passionfruit) are great, they melt in your mouth they’re not too chewy or too soft.

From a medicinal point of view Medi Munchies, being able to tailor the dose to my tolerance is perfect!

Keep Em Sweet – Shatter Sweets Review

Jolly Green 420 here and today I thought I’d do an edible review and a different sort of product – I wanted to stray away from the usual tag of edibles as ‘baked goods’ and so what would be better than to go with one of the best companies in the edible game here in the UK – Keep Em Sweet.

The people behind the brand are experts in sweet making using timeless techniques to make beautiful sweets and I’ve been lucky enough to get to trial them at various times in their production – from the first ones I ever tried at my second green pride – to the double/triple strength ‘ultra pineapple’ versions – to where the product has now been perfected into a delicious and equally beautiful looking pack of sweets.

 

The way these sweets are made is really interesting – a medicated sugar mixture is made and then the sweets are formed by having this sugar heated to the correct temperature then having the mix hand pulled and cut into pieces. I always consider these sweets to be something really special because of the individual time and care that I know the producer has put into making these.

These sweets tend more moderate dose wise but I find that that just makes them better for the daytime aspect – I often derive great pleasure in slowly sucking one of these for a half hour at work. That being said – at about 20mg per small sweet – the effects are definitely still noticeable and it is surprising how long you can just sit with these in your mouth and forget that you are taking in THC. This really makes them perfect for a lot of cases where you would want a subtler medication over a longer period of time, as well as at work I feel these would also be perfect for train rides and some of those irritating but necessary family events.

 

If I had to pick something edible wise that I could keep with me at all times it would be these – they’re the perfect everyday edible. If there was an award for an edible that is honestly the definition of incognito then these would get it every time – when decanted into a usual sweet bag there is absolutely no way to tell the difference until one is on your mouth.

Concentrate Review – Original NorCal Gooey

Oil, wax, shatter, sap to snap and pull we love it all. Brighton Cannabis Club always likes to hunt down the fire concentrates and give our mental taste buds a treat.

Up this week is the complex ‘Gooey’ by south east extractors,Sussex Shatter. This is one of the best and most interesting flavours I have ever had from Sussex Shatter. The team have expertly gro

wn the flowers that went into this 100% nug run concentrate so the entire process has been contained within the extractor’s space.

For a bit of background on the lineage of this strain we have a mash up of five old school and land race genetics – the official description from the team is “Original NorCal Gooey Mom, a very rare old cut, lineage as follows – Kambodga x Mexico x Colombia (Lumbo old) x Thai x Hawaii (mowie wowie 1972)”.

This is such a mixed strain and the taste really represents the amount of genetics inside the cross, varied, rich, but also slightly hard to pinpoint. Instantly on the exhale this concentrate supplies heavy amounts of pine and earthy musk, however accompanying that is an equally strong and recognisable sweetness that combines to resemble the taste of a more refined gorilla glue. I’ve got to say, the flavour is quite intense and just generally really enjoyable.

Effects wise this particular run seems to be overall indica dominant, however also fairly well rounded, as there are still active mental effects. I feel as though this accurately falls into one of my favourite groupings of cannabis strains – the ‘heavy indica dom with sweet terpenes’.

To round it off, heavy effects, a complex and interesting flavour profile, and assured heritage genetics. Another win for Sussex Shatter and another happy member of Brighton Cannabis Club.
