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!”

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).

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.”

Last year at this time I was staying in Pennsylvania. Nine months visiting kin. Being new in those parts, I had a hard time scoring weed. What made it worse was I stayed in the country. Outside Wilkes-Barre, in the very small town, out in the woods, I rented a room. I thought at the time it would be a positive place for me to recoup after finding myself single again. First time since 1993. All this drama took place at the end of November back in 2015. Came home from work one early Sunday evening and found who is now my ex-wife, in the company of another man. Six days later with the help of a few dear friends, I was leaving Katy Texas on my own and heading east on superhighway I-10.

The thing about it being tough to get pot was that besides a few people, nobody really knew me. Not a cannabis friendly place. The front page of the local paper had headlines about people getting busted for dirty pot paraphernalia. Marijuana and marijuana-related busts appeared to be all the rage. Meanwhile, people in my age bracket were dying from, heroin overdoses, almost as routinely. While there, medical marijuana was passed. Whoopie! Wasn’t immediate. Way too many hoops to qualify. The end result would be doctors and the law up your ass so deep, they could tickle your tonsils. And that’s with no lube. Almost like they were on purpose trying to discourage those from starting the process, to begin with. I sooner or later told myself:

“Self, fuck this!”

For those who don’t know the “Uncle G” story, having made it safely to Colorado, and on my second day in Fort Collins, I made my first legal weed purchase. Blew me away! On the recreational side of a cannabis dispensary.  After showing my out of state driving license, and flirting with the two pretty young lady budtenders behind the counter, I purchased a gram. Less than two months later, I was an officially licensed medical marijuana user. Nowhere near as burdensome meeting the qualifications as it would have been in the Keystone State. Money wise, after all is said and done, the total was just under a hundred and fifty dollars. Once you are licensed, you then qualify for medical marijuana price discounts. Could be 50 percent savings or more. If on a fixed budget, and say really legally disabled … and the cannabis in whatever form is a successful substitute from meds’ with known harmful side effects … this shit ROCKS! Financially and mentally.

Diary

Just this last month when at Verts Neighborhood Dispensary (Fort Collins CO), I spotted a refrigerator with a glass door. Inside this electric environmentally controlled box, were medical marijuana edibles. Glancing through the very clean glass, I noticed a black pouch. A lot of items. This one for some unknown reason stood out among the rest. The cool looking black packaging read; “Sweet Mary Jane – Key Lime Kickers.” I said to myself, I said:

“Self … looks yummy! I need to know more information about that.”

The budtender waiting on me, a very knowledgeable young lady, name Cayman. Has the title of assistant manager if I am not mistaken, and by the time we and other budtenders who were nearby got done conversing, I was walking out the door with medical marijuana … truffles. Friends reading this now are going … what? For they know I’m more a regular chocolate, kind of guy. The kind I’ve usually purchased in the past, as a rule, comes in wrappers with bar codes, and cost less than a dollar. From that to TRUFFLES … that need REFRIGERATED … A BIG jump. My choice could possibly be accredited to the female persuasion. Cayman (remember her) knew while informing me about what I was interested in, the already outstanding reputation this particular product, and the company that manufactured it, had. Having sales experience, it really helps a salesperson sell, when they have confidence in a product. I meanwhile just may have wanted something different? I liked that each of the four truffles contained 50 mg of THC (tetrahydrocannabinol). Knowing my body, I realized that with the amount of THC in that ballpark, I can start managing my chronic pain better. Keep in mind that everyone reading this is different. Please be aware of your health, and what cannabis levels you can safely tolerate without the dose being too much for you.

So I dosed on four different occasions. All at night, safely at home. Sometimes while in the nude.

The child-proof pouch is hard to open. Pissed me off at first. By the fourth ‘Key Lime Kicker’ I kind of had the hang of opening and closing the bag. The pouch I kept in the freezer, inside an empty Ego box. No real need for that, but I just found it safer in there. The package states how the truffles (HEMP CONNOISSEUR 1st Place Winner 2013) must be refrigerated. Freezing it properly will prolong shelf life for up to a half of year. So no stuffing in a sock drawer.

FYI: truffles are hand made from scratch and available in several flavors.

All four times I put a whole ‘Key Lime Kicker’ in my mouth. Was of course cold. The first taste is the outside graham cracker crumb coating. Reminded me of many a trip to the nearest Denny’s Restaurant, in which I would order their key lime pie for dessert, along with a fresh cup of coffee. The truffle, amazingly so, just kept getting better tasting. I noted; layers of yumminess. By the last truffle, I’m equating the taste and sensation of letting it slowly melt in my mouth, to an orgasm. Wow! The little white coated part that reads THC, like an M&M, but with a tastier tasting chocolate. Should sell them separately. While still melting, there is a creamy layer that’s to die for! Very little cannabis taste overall. If so, just for a split second or two. The magic ingredient; cannabis infused sugar.

I thought that the effects hit quickly for an edible. All four times I experienced being nice and calm. Worked well combating my nerve pain. It especially fucks with me at night. Helped me forget it some. Frankly, this is what I am looking for. I want to be able to cope and get by as reasonably as I can. Using medical marijuana I can do that. The candy tasted really good. An above average tasting THC delivery system. The effects seemed to last the entire night. Made notes waking up the next morning that I slept well on ‘testing’ nights.

Uncle G Recommends

Not something I might do every day/every night. For myself, better for evening use. Most moments under its influence, I felt serene. A tasty treat such as this ‘Key Lime Kicker’ a few times a month, sounds very doable. Especially on those more difficult to get around days. Help me recover when it’s dark outside. And Verts Neighborhood Dispensary is always stocked. After this review hits, I expect them to get sold out much quicker. Call ahead. Send an email. Communicate U R INTERESTED in Sweet Mary Jane – Key Lime Kickers. Plus their other products. Should help turn a shitty day into a glorious one. That is what “Uncle G” says. If one (adult 21 +) must for whatever reasons meditate, and is interested in medical marijuana edibles, here’s a good place to start looking.

Oh … and let go of my round waffle.

Verts - Strawberry Pucks (2017 04 23)

One day while in Verts Neighborhood Dispensary, located in beautiful Fort Collins, Colorado, my eyes fixated on a rather popular cannabis edible; Highly Edible – Golden Strawberry Pucks. Made by the nice people at CannaPunch. I first learned of them when writing about Dutch Girl – Caramel Waffles (Stroopwafel). Small world. That’s a CannaPunch product as well. I launched the ‘420 Reports’ with this:

https://garyunclegbrownarchives.com/2017/03/02/uncle-gs-420-reviews_edible-report/

“Edible Report #01” … am still receiving GREAT feedback. Thanks to ALL for that.

Diary

I started off by practicing what I preach. In doing so, it made me like these jellies right off the bat. The first thing I learned first hand about the item was I could easily regulate my first dose. A simple butter knife helped me cut the first ‘strawberry puck’. I was very careful in doing so. A quarter sized piece (6.5 mg THC). It was early in the evening. I was staying home conducting this test. Jamming out! I love music! When I felt the edible kick in, I was listening to Mike Oldfield’s Tubular Bells (1973). One of my all time favorite albums. A snippet (intro) was used in the highly acclaimed horror movie: The Exorcist. This 20th century masterpiece also helped kick off Virgin Records. Super successful. As was my first test of ‘Highly Edible – Golden Strawberry Pucks’. With ‘Nano-Extraction Technology – NXT’ … says that on the plastic container/bottle it comes in. To viewers of Star Trek, that would sound very 23rd century like. A promise of faster effects. A promise kept! Under an hour and I was feeling fine. Neither too wired or chilled out. I admit a small dose for me. I did think eating more would be even better. And I was soon to find out.

Over the course of a week, I consumed the whole bunch. The most I ate at one sitting was two full pucks. People rave about the taste by the way. A nice masking of the natural cannabis flavor.

Revelation

I am finding out that a person such as myself,  who is injured, can instead of taking an ‘over the counter’ pain reliever, digest an edible infused with THC, and feel relieved as well. It can happen. I’m not saying massive pain. Something on a pain scale of maybe 4 and lower. In my case the benefit would mean less; Aleve. I also take Gabapentin 300 mg throughout the 24 hour day. If I didn’t, I could not cope. I get leg pains, bad enough sometimes I could scream (and I do).

I am currently drawing a conclusion that over the course of time, that a steady supply of cannabis edibles could be a contributor to me taking less Gabapentin. Possibly one day wipe out any and all pharmaceuticals in my life. Regarding pharmaceuticals, it’s the side effects that scare the living shit out of me. Cannabis contains nothing that I am aware of, that deeply concerns me. I believe that. Based on the fact I have been partaking, and sometimes very heavily since the early 1970’s. No shit! And plenty out there know me from way back then. For many years a major pothead (and proud of it).

Recommendation

On the recreational side, you’ll get a lower dose of THC. It’s cool. For the average healthy adult pot user, 10 mg of THC and it’s all smiles ahead. A pleasant high. Yet, I’m grateful for the stronger stuff. Distracts from the discomfort I tend to experience, most of my waking moments. Brought on by hard work, and getting older.

I survived my days of testing Highly Edible – Golden Strawberry Puck with ease. A nice working cannabis med to have in the old medicine cabinet. Know your own body … what it can tolerate without you being one of those fools who consumed too much and make the news … and if this kind of edible is appealing to you … I got mine at Verts Neighborhood Dispensary. When last I checked, they appeared very well stocked. Different flavors. Make sure to check out the whole line of Highly Edible (CannaPunch) products. After all, I am (insert smiley face).
