Thursday I experienced the kind of migraine that had me losing feeling in my arm, pulling window shades down to protect my eyes, smelling the hickory in bacon two thousand times stronger than the average human, and forgetting common words.

I tried relieving the monster headache part with caffeine and acetaminophen, but it didn’t help enough. So I asked Dan if he’d run to Cloud 9 for me and pick up what I’d picked out online.

Medical marijuana to the rescue.

I picked out two new-to-me edibles and tried one immediately yesterday. Thought I’d review the first—cherry chews from Betty’s Eddies—today. There was no way I was typing up a coherent review while high yesterday.

And, girl, was I high. This review should be fun.

Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ (5/5)

Product: Betty’s Eddies Ache Away Eddies cherry fruit chews

Cannabis Type: Hybrid

Price: $25

Dose: 10 mg ea. / 100 mg total

THC: 10 mg; CBD: 40 mg; CBC: 5 mg

Taste: Surprisingly delicious. Reminiscent of a Now & Later in tartness and flavor, but much softer to chew. I could taste the weed, but I’ve yet to come across an edible that doesn’t have that distinctive flavor.

Maybe that’s on purpose.

Overall High: 13/10

Now, I am more sensitive to THC than some, what Dan calls a cheap date. So the fact that I took one chew and it melted my face probably boils down to two things: 1.) I hadn’t consumed an edible in a while, and 2.) a more conservative dose for me would be 5 mg.

But the chew was wrapped so cutely like saltwater taffy at 10 mg! Who was I to cut it in half?

Time to High: 30 minutes

I thought the “fast acting” bit on the package was probably overstated marketing baloney before I took one, but half an hour is faster than most. It usually takes me about 90 minutes to hit peak.

Duration of High: 2 hours

I was unable to stop smiling, repeatedly asking Dan to remind me I’d taken drugs in case I got scared (I was worried about me, d’aww), and generally euphoric for two hours.

Pain Relief: 9/10

I’m still running on reduced pain today. Yes, I know the pain is there, but it’s possible to get comfortable and forget about it for 30 minutes at a time this morning. I like that!

Munchies (Intensity): 4/10

What I ate during this period (a giant bowl of ice cream with strawberries) was exceptionally good, but my generalized desire to eat was shockingly mild.

Couchlock (Intensity): 8/10

Don’t make plans.

Time Dilation (Intensity) 9/10

I checked the clock at 12:42 pm convinced it was probably almost 7:00 pm.

Notes on CBC and Turmeric:

This was my first time trying anything labeled CBC along with the usual THC and CBD. It turns out CBC is something dispensaries and manufacturers are hyping for its anti-inflammatory properties.

Is it actually a thing, though? I don’t know.

From Wikipedia: “Cannabichromene (CBC), also called cannabichrome, cannanbichromene, pentylcannabichromene or cannabinochromene, exhibits anti-inflammatory properties in vitro, which may, theoretically, contribute to cannabis analgesic effects.”

This bag also notes that it contains turmeric. Which I’ve heard good things about, but again not scientific things.
