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.”

 

Robhots - Butter Knife (2017 06 20)

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.

TX 2 PA - Driving_Leaving Houston (2015 12 06)_07_17 am

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!”

Pulled into Dallas PA. driving a U-Haul and left town nine months later a passenger on a Greyhound bus, heading to parts unknown.

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.”

Sweet Mary Jane - KLK - packaging (2017 05 10)

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.

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.

Tincture Belle - logo
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).

Cannabis

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.  

Diary

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 …

Uncle G’s Official Recommendation

How could I not? Can change the face of the Earth as we know it today. Those politicians with a stick up their ass protecting those who endorse keeping a product such as this out of the reach of people in our society who serious could use it … bookmark and keep reading ‘Uncle G’s FUN 420 Reviews’. Brought to you by the fine people at Verts Neighborhood Dispensary (Fort Collins CO). And if ever seeing your “Uncle G” inside Verts, talking and holding up the line as I usually do, feel free to say hello. The folks behind you in line won’t mind at all.

This wraps up another exciting ‘Uncle G’s FUN 420 Reviews’. Another one on the way. Am looking forward to reading it myself.

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.
