Keef Cola - Blue Razz

Uncle G’s FUN 420 Reviews: Edible Report #12 … finds yours truly coming off the death of a friend. One of the first individuals I got to know, since arriving in northern Colorado last September. Truly sad. I took a week to mourn. No writing. Hard to be creative under those circumstances.

About a week before my friend’s death occurred, I spent a day testing a cannabis product name: Keef Cola – Blue Razz (THC 100mg). Let me tell you about it.  

Diary

My second time trying a liquid THC infused product. My first was a dissolvable powder by Stillwater Brands (Uncle G’s FUN 420 Reviews: Edible Report #02) that I tested it in part, by adding to my morning coffee not too long ago.

Also, a liquid per-say (not a beverage) was a tincture (drops placed under the tongue for best results) I tried (Uncle G’s FUN 420 Reviews: Edible Report #08) and really enjoyed. Feel free to check out my write up on that if you have not already.

Keef Cola’s Blue Razz is a straight up carbonated berry tasting soda pop. Comes in a cool looking plastic bottle that I placed in the kitchen refrigerator the night before. The budtender at Verts recommended chilling before consuming, in which I did.

Note: Heads up … being liquid as compared to being solid, the THC effects should be felt earlier.

The whole twelve fluid oz serving contains 100mg of THC. That’s enough to pack a real punch, especially for those will lower tolerances. It doesn’t have to be consumed all at once. Get a measuring cup and drink whatever you feel comfortable doing; six ozs equals 50mg THC, etc..

A little background on myself for those reading Uncle G’s 420 Reviews for the very first time. I’m physically hurt (chronic pain), so I medicate every day with cannabis. Seriously helps! I also take two pharmaceuticals. One is for high blood pressure. Nothing too wild. Helps keep the BP numbers within a healthy range. A little more weight loss (few pounds) and I can maybe stop taking that one. Happened before (2014). The other pill I take a couple or a few times a day is to help me cope with nerve damage. I really do need that one. A side effect is sleepiness. The life of a writer. As long as my bills are paid, I can take naps just about whenever the urge strikes.  

Following the advice suggested to me (Verts), I started off this whole cannabis medical edible thing with very small doses. Nowadays about 50 to 60 mg of THC makes me feel pretty much alright with the world. Enough so I can function normally and not be too super medicated. But I have known to do a little more if I feel it’s needed and I can do so safely. In other words, for this little experiment, I drank the whole bottle in one sitting. Please take my/Verts advice and only use an amount of THC that you feel you can handle.

Shopping Reminder: Buy a cool looking/functioning bottle opener.

So there I was on a very early Saturday (22 July) morning, all ready to test and not having anything to open the bottle with. In the same house, my friend Paul had a bottle opener he let me borrow. I cracked open the metal cap to the child proof plastic bottle. Noticed an immediate smell of berries. Nice aroma! I had a coke glass that I poured the THC beverage into. Found out Keef Cola’s Blue Razz is really blue in color. Fizzes well. I took my time drinking. A very enjoyable taste with nary a hint of cannabis. Glad it was chilled. Well within a half hour or so I could feel its effects. A ‘hybrid strain’, the results for me was being able to be active/productive around the house throughout the rest of the morning, well into the afternoon. A very pleasant experience. Aches and pains were kept to a minimum. Being under its influence didn’t hinder me any.

Uncle G Recommends

A unique way to medicate. Would be nice to have a few bottles in the fridge. For those not into smoking, nor wanting to chew their cannabis meds’, here is a bubbly alternative that can be enjoyed … TODAY. Should the cannabis laws where you reside be in your favor.

On the subject, and just so we’re on the same page, ‘Uncle G’ wants total legalization and decriminalization of marijuana, ALL across the United States. Hemp as well. From sea to shining sea. If not already in your area, communicate to your local politicians until they see the light. Recreational is fine for those ages 21 or older, and of sound mind and body (recommended).

Imagine real medicine (healthy dosage) with no debilitating side effects? Cannabis can and will lead the way! BIG Booze and those Pharmaceutical companies that decide to compliment cannabis, I predict will survive. All others I believe will perish. Those, especially on the side of affordable medicinal marijuana, are going to thrive.  Helping folks who are having a hard time helping themselves … ‘Uncle G’ thinks PLENTY of extra good karma will come out of that for all who make it happen. 

 Rest In Peace

Robhots - Front Box (2017 06 20)

Last month I was visiting Verts Neighborhood Dispensary (Fort Collins, CO), doing what has become, my usual routine. I’m old school (and damn proud of it). Buying some weed (flower). And then … wait for it … checking out the medicinal edibles as well. Being waited on by a cool budtender that I’ve gotten to know some name, Keegan. Dude always gives me his full attention. So while scanning over the cannabis meds, one word out of hundreds, jumped out at me; mango. Printed on a black box, about the size of a pack of cancer sticks, or a deck of playing cards. In different fonts, all the information that one legally has to have here in the state of Colorado in order to publicly sell this cannabis infused with THC Distillate, product. The paper container having white and reddish orange writing, and a little black type mixed in as well. Childproof package inside holding one yummy gummy. For mango is one of my favorite fruits. Got into the wonderful juicy stone fruit while staying in Florida, back in the early 1980’s. Found out about the aloe vera plant around the same time. I lived in New Jersey 15 years before that. Neither item at the time was typically found there. Back to the subject at hand, Robhots comes in a variety of flavors. I’ll inform you ahead of time; “Mango RULES!”

Robhot - Mango (actual product)

Diary
Having the flavored gummy I was interested in, I opened the box and pulled out the black child proof flavor tight packaging. Ten minutes later I managed to finally get the actual gummy out. Only kidding …  5 minutes later. Got a butter knife and cut the orange medicine into two pieces. Basic math informs me I’m getting a slightly stronger dose than I might be comfortable with; 62.5 mg – infused with THC Distillate – a tasteless, colorless form of THC that averages upwards to 96 percent THC (total).

Robhots - Info

The little voice inside me ponders …

“What’s for supper?

Maybe I should do the medicated cannabis edible first, and then have eat dinner?

What’s for dinner?

I wonder if enough money was in the checking account to cover the Netflix bill? 

I’m HUNGRY! I know … leftover spaghetti (insert smiley face).

And then that little voice inside concludes …

Oh … I’m pretty sure that I could safely handle half of this gummy, being close enough to the THC dose I am nowadays comfortable with.”

Trial and error … start off with small dosing, and work your way up to a level of cannabis medication that helps deal with whatever you are wanting the THC to do. And very important, always try to know from what kind of cannabis plant did it come from; indica, sativa, or is this a special blend; hybrid. Just sayin’.  

I tested on two different nights. Both times, I felt a very nice, kind of calming effect. Not too wasted. I might have laughed at shit on the television that I might not have even giggled at previously. My lower back was fine. No real discomfort. I skipped my night time nerve medication on both testing nights. Slept fine. Did I say how it tasted really good?

Uncle G Recommends
Sure do! All day and all night! Try not to operate any farm equipment while under the influence. It would be weird, especially if never on a farm before. 

Remember, Robhots has stronger cannabis medication than this. What I picked out more tailored my needs. Same as you will also do, each and every time when buying/consuming any cannabis edible. Uncle G says about the subject;

“Know all you can … beforehand. Not only about the product you are considering doing, but about your own mental and physical self as well. Put it this way. The less information you have, the more change the opportunity of something going wrong.”

Dixie - Dark Chocolate (med)

Can you believe this is issue number 4? It has indeed been FUN so far. 

For ‘Uncle G’s FUN 420 Reviews: Edible Report (#04), I’m digging into ‘cannabis infused medicinal chocolate.’ Word is not everyone gets it right. Good news, for the company Dixie Elixirs (and Edibles) sure has. Matter of fact, I didn’t taste anything but well-made dark chocolate. Oh, and peppermint. Very yummy, and by the way, good for the tummy. 

Right off the bat, I knew that this edible was stronger than what I had previously done. I looked real forward to trying it out, but at the same time wanted to keep safe. I keep hearing horror stories of people eating edibles too strong for them. I don’t ever want to go through that. One time back in the 1970’s I ate too much blotter acid. Closest I ever came to a bad trip. 

When it comes to meds that help me deal with the day the best I can, I sometimes need some extra strong stuff. With cannabis, I can do this. Many strains/varieties. Usually, I like a good sativa during the day, and a strong indica for night time. Should it be one of those days where I could be doing better, I might do indica the whole day. Every day for me is different physically and mentally like it is for everyone else. A good place for this. As is customary someplace within all my ‘420 Reviews’, I advise to know your own bodies limitations, and please be careful.

Personally, I acknowledge a cannabis tolerance. Over time it happens. In my mind, better than popping opiates, and drinking a bottle of whiskey a day. One grows a tolerance to that shit as well. Instead of that, I look towards the natural cannabis plant for help regarding at least some of which I suffer. There is a certain high I can get to where I forget that my ass is literally killing me (tailbone injury/arthritis/disc injury). Opiates and booze will get me there also. At what price? Sad to even say, but it’s getting more common for guys my age, to commit suicide, or OD shooting H … while dealing with their bodies wearing out. A nasty part of aging. An epidemic right here in America.

Big Alcohol/Big Pharmaceuticals has/will try to connect pot and heroin together; gateway. In other words, you can look away. Nothing wrong here, or so our so called trusted officials say. But there is. The connection is pure bullshit, but they will insist on connecting the two anyway. In the meantime, beer sales are down in Colorado. Check it out. Millions of stories. People are out there no longer popping pills at night to help get some sleep. For myself, a couple tokes of some find indica before I hit the bed, and it’s off to sleep I go. 

The secret is out. The cat is out of the bag. Marijuana isn’t as evil as what our country has previously been telling us. The government can’t stop the adult interest in cannabis, and smart politicians want things as far as cannabis legislation to go forward. Legalize and decriminalize. The sooner the better. Why do you ask? Because I decided after doing ‘4 tests’ on this Dixie product, that I am getting even more seriously interested in how to really make this work as far as my own pain management goals. Not that I’d stop smoking altogether. To eat an edible (cannabis) and get the same results if not better than what I was getting being polluted all day on hydrocodone, sounds wonderful. Those damn pills are dirt cheap. And I am not interested, nor will I ever be, in synthetic (fake) marijuana. That’s cheap too. Ever wonder why? Economics for some might come into it when making a decision. I am willing to pay more (within reason) for medication if I deem it beneficial to my health, and can actually afford to do so. That the cost is not a burden to bear. Mixed with smoke (one can Vape), and whatever MEDs the doctor said one must take, ingesting cannabis in this matter daily (if needed) should help those including myself live a more productive/positive life. Dixie offers a nice line of products, offering WAY more than one THC delivery system. After being so happy with this particular product, I for one am certain that I will check out what else they have to offer, real soon.

Uncle G’s Testing Diary

Successfully opening the child proof box, the chocolate bar comes wrapped and although sold as one solid bar, is manufactured so chunks can be broken off easily. Similar to other regular candy bars I had; Hershey. Dixie’s is divided into twelve squares. In my mind, a dozen doses. Easy to break apart. I decided that I’d start off slow. Again, contains a higher THC dose. I eat one of the twelve squares and settle in. It’s early in the evening. No negative taste experiences whatsoever. An hour later, I feel adventurous and eat another. All throughout the evening, I am fine! Note, I wasn’t medicated using anything else beforehand. I didn’t over medicate myself. Two squares on me did the trick. Seriously, I would never think of eating three. The pain was tolerable throughout the evening. Better than if just smoking. Was continuously mellow, and happy. I tested in a safe environment. Ended on a ‘high’ note. I experienced the best sleep I have in ages. Two nights out of four I slept for at least six hours consecutively. Two squares. Waiting an hour to dose for the second time might have had a hand in that. Also, I ate the squares early in the evening. About four or five hours into it, I became sleepy. Up early in the morning, so that was probably more on the natural side. Still, I awoke so refreshed. Hard to imagine the edible not having something to do with that. The other two nights I awoke just one time (bathroom) within a six-hour time span. Fell right back asleep.

Verdict

Pertaining to cannabis edibles, this particular medicinal cannabis infused peppermint/dark chocolate item, raised the edible ‘bar’ for me. My first time going the chocolate route. For dark chocolate in which I sometimes find bitter, what Dixie Elixirs has to offer is simply delicious. Health benefits from consuming that as well. Word within the legal cannabis community was correct about this outstanding medicinal peppermint/dark chocolate candy bar. For those like myself who are into this kind of thing, I would not think twice about recommending.
