Uncle G’s FUN 420 Reviews: Edible Report (#08)
Thanks again guys and gals for checking in on another exciting “Uncle G’s FUN 420 Reviews – Edible Report.” Hard to believe this is already ‘edition number eight.’ Now let’s get right down to it.
The newest cannabis edible I picked up at Verts Neighborhood Dispensary, located in picturesque Fort Collins, Colorado, would forever change my world. What a heavy statement that is! Please read on and I’ll elaborate.
I think if a situation arose and for whatever reason, I could not physically smoke (inhale) my weed for a long duration of time, that I could go a day or more maintaining my daily cannabis flow, via this product, and not ‘toke’ pot at all. Wow! Welcome to the wonderful world of cannabis tincture. I’m a newbie. Am ready and more than willing to explore. As a matter of fact, I am grateful for the opportunity.
Having been diagnosed with COPD (am for now non-medicated) a few years back, my lungs are begging to know why I didn’t get into this, decades ago. The simple answer is that cannabis tinctures just wasn’t available to me. I nor anyone else I knew, growing up on the New Jersey shore. I started doing pot in the early 1970’s. For ninety-five percent of that time up until now, I smoked schwag. Saying that the COPD I believe is the compliments of what was a nasty cigarette addiction that lasted for over three decades. I quit back in 2007. One of the most horrible experiences I ever went through; nicotine withdrawal. Ten years in November (around Turkey Day).
So my lungs are going: “Hell yeah!” My first time doing THC/CBD drops. Now that any and all testing is over I can say that I really love this shit (insert product name). Really I do! So many benefits in either helping fight or prevent so many maladies that still plague humankind. Please note I cannot compare this product with other cannabis tinctures. Not yet. As time goes by I will certainly dig into whatever else I can find at Verts that catches me eye, and is along the same lines. To go from doing weed recreationally to seeking refuge medicinally is two entirely different things. I want all adult consumers of any and all cannabis product, to be educated about it. Bookmark and keep coming back. We can educate ourselves together, and along the way, I’ll tell a tale or two.
Yes, I researched. I do indeed practice what I preach (referring to previous ‘Uncle G’s FUN 420 Reports’ that I authored). Was feeling in good health. The environment was just right for testing. I simply could not wait until the next morning. Regarding the first test, I told myself. I said;
“Self, one of the many things I read cannabis tincture can help a person with, is to help get a solid night’s sleep. Why wait for tomorrow to crack that open? Now where the fuck did I put that container from TinctureBelle, oh wait, there it is.”
I mastered opening the TinctureBelle childproof container, and when tipped over, out came this old fashioned glass medicine bottle. Must say so myself, good catch. The color was brown and at the top of the glass container, was an old fashion black eyedropper. Its packaging perhaps a throwback to the days of yesteryear? The label looking modern day with all the information one would expect (by law) to find. The medicine bottle twists open. Again with childproofing. Once mastered/opened, the glass eyedropper when carefully pulled up has a standard of measurements printed on it. Very easy to read. What stood out in my mind, is that wrapped so lovely all over the actual glass eyedropper and also inside the bottle, was tangerine tasting (real yummy after a few tries) cannabis tincture (something I only previously read about) infused with HASH OIL – 2000 mg THC/CBC – and other cannabinoids. With a net weight of 1 oz. And I can’t forget; “XXX Strength.”
For those new to this, let me help; CBD – won’t get you stoned. That is what THC does. This contains both. All throughout the tests, I stayed even-keeled. One of the many benefits. For some, it offers anti-anxiety effects. Also an anti-inflammatory. I’m benefiting in more ways than one.
We had some weather during the testing that really bothered my arthritis and an old tailbone injury from ‘92. Car accident. Add the bottom disc in my back is totally crushed beyond medical repair. From that comes nerve damage. Equals one BIG pain in the ass, literally. My right butt cheek being more specific, on the days of testing. Could be my left side next time? Would have been a harder to walk day than usual. Was a treat experiencing this miracle cannabis tincture first hand. Smoke-free … just the drops. I indeed got around, outside included (safely on foot with the aid of a cane or using public transportation). Occasionally people offer rides … bless them.
Regarding doses, I read and comprehended the label; “1 to 3 drops”. A dose on the eyedropper measures; 25 ml. A full eye dropper is 100 ml. It states that. Measured precisely. That would be 4 drops. Heed my warning when I say, like a four cylinder car with a speedometer that reads 120 mph and beyond … an automobile such as that, should not be driven over 80 mph, or expect bad shit to happen. Consume a full eye dropper of this tasty Nektar of the Gods … and you’ll be the fool on the news who could not handle all the THC they consumed. I use that example over and over because it makes the point I want it to make.
I started off placing 25 ml under my tongue (as suggested) and worked my up to 75 ml at a time. I felt I dosed when needed, as any responsible adult would do. Until it ran out. I was sad. Here is something that is used for so many things, including getting a nice night’s sleep in which I did (test #01). TinctureBelle’s XXX Strength Twisted Tangerine Cannabis Tincture Infused With Hash Oil (and other cannabinoids) helped my attitude, and even lowered the pain scale down for me.
During one test, once settled in, I turned on Netflix and discovered a comedy sitcom called; Arrested Development. Totally missed the program and its re-birth when it first aired. Written for adults who love to pay attention to dialogue, and have a somewhat dry sense of humor. It’s also in your face funny. Ron Howard is an executive producer and is the series, regular narrator. A fine cast that also includes ‘Happy Days’, Henry Winkler. Thanks, TinctureBelle … I strongly recommend the series, if one has not seen yet, as I do you … and this wonderful product; XXX Strength Twisted Tangerine (comes in other flavors including ‘naked’) Cannabis Tincture Infused With Hash Oil (2000mg THC/CBD) and other Cannabinoids.
Speaking of which … a Neal Smith drumroll, please …
