Colorado Cannabis Diaries 2

I made it back to the dispensary and this time I only went for the edibles. I’m excited to share the goodies I got, I definitely found some new favorites!

1. Incredibles- Mile High Mint Chocolate Bar

100 mg

*Attention chocolate lovers *

20170614_111949This is definitely something I’m going to buy again. Do you know those little Andes mint chocolates you shove in your pocket on the way out of a restaurant? This bar by Incredibles tastes just like them. Yummy. This chocolate bar was a hybrid and gave me a great buzz. After about an hour I felt energetic and happy, I usually went out for a hike after I felt these kick in. The buzz lasts for a good amount of time. Then I got a little case of the munchies, which is helpful because I’ve been having trouble working up an appetite lately. Definitely one of my favorites so far, these give you a happy little buzz. Good luck trying not to eat the whole 100 mg bar all at once, they are delicious.

2. TasteBudz- Gummies

100 mg

20170614_112012 1This is another one I’m sure to buy again. These gummies hit the spot. Unlike the Wana gummies which were spotty, I knew these gummies by TasteBudz would kick in in about an hour. The Wana gummies also gave me a different high every time and that was something I didn’t like. These gummies, which were 10 mg each, gave the same type of high every time. I got two types; a blue raspberry sativa and a tropical punch indica. That was another perc of these gummies; I got to pick the flavor. Most Wana gummies I see are assorted flavors and half of them I don’t like. These also had less of a weed flavor.

 I could tell these were strong and true strains; the sativa is an energetic head high that is great for getting up and getting stuff done. I often sat down to read a book, work, or do some sort of physical activity- yoga, biking, or hiking this sativa energizes you for it all. Exactly what you would expect from a sativa. The indica is a strong body high that really relaxes you. I’ve been having some trouble eating and sleeping lately but these strong indica gummies have really helped me relax and work up an appetite. Exactly what you would expect from an indica.

The gummies and chocolate bar were $25 each if I remember correctly. The TasteBudz are the same price as Wana gummies and in my opinion they are better. I will definitely be purchasing these again… after my next paycheck.

Summer Reading List 1

  1. Only the Stones Survive Morgan Llywelyn

I read this book in a day and a half. I couldn’t put it down and before I knew it, it was after midnight. I thought this was a wonderfully imaginative book, exactly what I was looking for. Like many of Llywelyn’s books, Only the Stones Survive is based off Irish myth and legend. Fleeing from drought, the desperate Gaels leave their homeland towards a rich mythical island. Legends say the island is full of gold and infinite riches. However, the island is already inhabited by multiple magical species and ruled by the Tuatha De Danann, a fairy people that live and communicate with nature. The ensuing story is one of conquest, struggle, and magic. I loved this book and wanted to reread it right after I finished, but instead I am going to read Llywelyn’s Druids novels.

  1. The Book of Madness and Cures Regina O’Melveny

The title of this book sounds more exciting than the story actually is. An Italian woman studying to be a doctor is obsessed with finding her father. Her father left 10 years ago to travel around Europe and complete his book of medicine. Without her father she is desperate, lonely, and unable to continue her practice. She follows his letters in hopes of finding him. At times, her obsession with finding her father borders on incestuous. Her journey was boring. I was hoping for a story full of adventure and travel but nothing very exciting happened. Despite hoping to finish the book as quick as I could, I struggled finishing it because I was so uninterested.

  1. The Fever Tree Jennifer McVeigh

If you’ve ever seen the movie Out of Africa then you’ve read this book. Don’t get me wrong it was a good book. A naïve, sheltered English society girl loses all she has and is forced to marry. But on the voyage to her new husband and new life in Africa, she falls in love with another man. She throws away all optimism for her marriage and hopes this more successful man will throw everything away for her. Nothing is how she imagined her life would be and she struggles with that through the whole book.
