Medical marijuana is taking Oklahoma by a very chill, very laidback storm. With new dispensaries opening across the state and manufacturers eagerly filling shelves with marijuana edibles, it seems like high time to start reviewing products to help patients find the best medicine for their needs. Interested in talking to a doctor about medical marijuana? Oklahoma City-based Bloom Healthcare Inc. is a no-judgement doctor’s office dedicated to helping those in need find the right treatment for their ailments.
This edition of #WeedEater is our first potable concoction. Picked up from ElectraLeaf in Bricktown, the Scissortail Essentials Cold Press Coffee with 35 mg of THC from Gorilla Glue #4 is an attractive little package. “Shake gently. Sip slowly.” the label says and for good reason: Shaking the bottle helps reintegrate any bits of THC that have separated out while it’s sitting.
The coffee is smooth with no real medicinal flavors. There’s a mild sweetness to it that is pleasant and I can imagine sipping this over the course of a very lazy morning. The only issue I had with it was the label suggested this 8.4 oz bottle could be used for three servings. You won’t want to stop sipping this one, especially not after imbibing just a couple of ounces.
Technically, the caffeine in the Scissortail Essentials Cold Press Coffee comes on before anything else, but the effects of the THC started about 40 minutes in.
Gorilla Glue #4 is known as an indica heavy hitter and stories I’ve heard say it’s responsible for planting more than a few users on the floor for the duration. Mixed with coffee, however, the effects are mitigated. Not only was the cold-press coffee tasty, but it kept the sleepier elements of the marijuana at bay for a relaxing body feeling and a slightly buzzy head feel.
It's a focus-heavy high, without any spaciness or distractions and some pain-relief characteristics that never crossed the line into drowsiness.
I run through a list of activities when the medicine takes hold to see how it affects day-to-day living.
Reading: Surprisingly focused. The blend of caffeine and THC kept me awake, alert and interested.
Writing: This was the best. Even with plenty of distractions, it was easy to write and stay on-track.
Video games: Focus wasn’t a problem, though I did get a little bored with the game.
TV: I could watch, but I didn’t care to.
Talking: Very mild dry mouth, but it was a surprisingly social feeling that led me to carry on multiple conversations for the duration of the effects.
Relaxing: Caffeine isn’t great for sleeping, obvi. It’s a pretty chill feeling, but not a particularly drowsy one.
As coffee goes, the Scissortail Essentials Cold-Press Coffee tasted great and was easy to sip on. It might mix well in a frappe or poured over ice. The Gorilla Glue #4 component didn’t act as I’d expected, especially at 35 mg of THC, but it was still an overall pleasant experience. It’s a great product for a relaxing morning when you’d like to get something done but don’t mind floating a bit along the way.
