Recommended Age for Consumption: 21 +

Note: Consumption of certain things will vary, according to the individual. This is true at ALL TIMES. Presently I am six foot, and weigh in at about 198 pounds. I am also for the most part excluding injuries, fairly healthy for my age. Results I get will be certainly different taking the same dose of whatever it may be, compared to how a young lady who was 5 foot 4 inches, and last time on the scale weighed 126 pounds. Needs sayin’. Any questions, please ask. Remember I am not a doctor. Given the opportunity, I would play one on TV, or in a low budget indie B film. Preferably a comedy, sci-fi, or horror picture. Something to focus on another day.
What’s not to love about edibles? Plenty if you buy the wrong one. You could end up with not exactly getting what you were hoping for. Too weak? Too strong? Taste like dirt? Didn’t get off? Better to chalk it up to a learnable experience, than be totally pissed off. And so it perhaps won’t happen again, let me your helpful mature/experienced 420 reviewer, try to point you in the right direction. Will be entertaining at times. If in the process passing on my experience helps … cool. So keep an eye out for NEW ‘Uncle G’s FUN 420 Reviews’. Over time I’ll share about whatever cannabis item ends up in my path; smoke, edibles, etc.. Feel free to leave comments/give feedback.
Uncle G’s FUN 420 Reviews (First Edition)
Topic: Edible Report – Dutch Girl Caramel Waffles (Stroopwafel)
The place, Fort Collins, Colorado (USA). A place I’ve been calling home since last year. This is where you will find a marijuana dispensary named; Verts Neighborhood Dispensary. Cool place! I love the smells/vibes as soon as I walk in the door. Knowledgeable employees that are fun to talk to. Excellent products, including edibles.
For those who don’t know me, I have been smoking pot on and off since the Nixon Administration. Primarily I am an old fashion smoker. I am now a licensed medical user (chronic pain) via the great state of Colorado. Being legal here, I can let my curiosity take over some, and try whatever new hits the market that is marijuana related, and something I have an interest with.
So this marks my third time digging into this type of smokeless high since arriving in Fort Collins. I really enjoyed my first time. The second experience sucked through a long straw, and this newest one, Dutch Girl Caramel Waffles (Stroopwafel), I tend to think is … keep reading.
Product: Dutch Girl Caramel Waffles (Stroopwafel) 250 mg THC (10 each/25 mg pieces). Produced by the good people at the CannaPunch Company in Denver, Colorado. In business since 2009 according to their website.
Uncle G’s Thoughts
Took me a little over a week, and three different occasions to polish off the 10 yummy caramel waffles that came inside a circular plastic container. While on the subject, please collect and recycle these. Verts Neighborhood Dispensary who I already mentioned, take your used plastic med/rec containers, bottles, tubes, etc. I just dropped off a few months worths myself. Helps Mother Earth. I digress. After all, it was for the long-term good of the planet we call home. Now back to ‘stroopwafel’ land.
The first time I ate three within a 45 minute time period. Would not recommend this dosage for the average consumer. Two at the most. And then wait a couple hours. Could take up to 8 hours to come down. Depends on the individual. If a ‘light-weight’, eat a half, or just one waffle, wait at least three-quarters of an hour, and see what happens.
Note: Hard for myself not to toke a bit while under the influence. I wanted to focus on the product. That was the writing assignment I was given.
Mixing with anything takes away from what the ‘waffle’ itself has to offer. Saying all that, after I consumed the three cookies, I cozied up in bed and for the rest of the night, channel surfed the TV. A very mellow experience. Be aware that when looking back since awakening that day, that I would conclude, that it was a very long day which started with waking up around 4:30 am. I got the opportunity to watch the sun come up. So by the time I ate the three ‘Dutch Girl Caramel Waffles’, it was after 7 pm, and if not doing them, I would have naturally gotten tired.
The day after I awoke from after a very nice evening sleep, and decided to continue ‘reviewing’ this tasty marijuana delivery system, to which I could re-visit; MellowVille. So still not smoking, I arose to the sunshine and to eat another delicious waffle with my morning coffee. Within a six-hour period, I sucked down a total of four. Including the night before, I now swallowed seven of these things. All throughout this pleasant experience, I stayed chilled and was never out-and-out comatose.
The last three waffles I ‘tested’ was yesterday. I let a few days pass before doing the Colorado state item again. Gave me the opportunity time to collect my thoughts on how I felt using this particular medicated bakery goodie. This last time it was during the day. I even managed to venture out a little bit while under the influence. No driving! On foot. By doing so it showed how I wasn’t that stoned, and still able to do everyday functions. A high that isn’t too stimulating, nor relaxing (when one has had a good nights sleep).
But the real fun I had while ‘reviewing’ this pleasant edible was just hanging out at home, chilling out watching tv and listening to music. One music CD I was so kindly given (last year) in hopes I’d write about it; Burnt Belief – Emergent (2016). Spacey prog-rock instrumental. It includes from the prog-rock band Porcupine Tree, intense bass player; Colin Edwin. Excellent music for this! Play and let your mind take in the crazy cool sounds. Alone or with some company, adding one or two of these ‘special’ caramel waffles to your day, sure won’t hurt any. Matter of fact I’m sure it will brighten up what is going on around you.
