Review: Incredibles Strawberry Crunch Bar

Review: Incredibles Strawberry Crunch Bar

Friday, on day two of my migraine, I dipped back into my stash of medical marijuana edibles.

I picked out two new-to-me edibles from the dispensary last week. I already reviewed the first—cherry chews from Betty’s Eddies. Today’s review is for the Incredibles Strawberry Crunch white chocolate bar with crispy rice.

Rating: ⭐⭐⭐ (3/5)

Product: Strawberry Crunch Bar by Incredibles

Cannabis Type: Indica? Maybe? I looked up indica edibles when browsing the Cloud9 website, but it’s not specified on the box or the product listing now that I’m trying to verify my assumptions.

Price: $20

Dose: 10 mg ea. Piece / 100 mg total

THC: 10 mg

Taste: It’s just okay. I think white chocolate is pretty boring. It’s sweet without much texture or flavor. The crispy rice seems sparse.

Certainly not gross but also not what I’d call good. Maybe that’s ideal? If I like it too much, I might struggle to pace myself.

Overall High: 7/10

The high was noticeable and good, but one-dimensional feeling because I had the Ache Away Eddies for comparison.

Time to High: 70 minutes

That was on an empty stomach, how I usually take edibles. Unless the pain is dire, I like to eat after I’ve had an edible. Food tastes better. If you know, you know.

Duration of High: 3 hours 20 minutes

I was mostly just sleepy, but also acutely aware that I didn’t feel as miserable. Always a win.

Pain Relief: 8/10

Definitely worth taking. I’m not sure if the back-to-back days of having edibles impacted the pain relief or not. It seemed what I might expect in pain relief from a THC-only indica strain. Reliable relief that I wish was just a little better.

Munchies (Intensity): 6/10

I was on the lookout for food in general, but I was hungry when the show started. No specific food cravings.

Couchlock (Intensity): 5/10

I wasn’t what you’d call motivated, Bob.

Time Dilation (Intensity) 8/10

I had to look at the clock frequently or lose myself to time.

Notes on Packaging:

It looks pretty and is designed to be childproof, but in this disabled household it’s not convenient. I had a hard time gripping the tray. Also i didn’t want to ruin the box, for reasons I cannot explain but others can probably relate to.

Review: Ache Away Eddies Cherry Chews from Betty’s Eddies

Review: Ache Away Eddies Cherry Chews from Betty’s Eddies

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.
