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.
Kind Bites was one of the first edible companies on the scene in Oklahoma and they’ve endured among plenty of competition because they’ve figured out a few basic truths:
- Edibles need to taste good.
- Edibles need to work.
The hunt for review materials for #WeedEater has been tough. That’s why you are likely to continue to see products from the same producers at many local dispensaries. Gummies with a terrible texture. Suckers that never kick in. Drinks with incredibly bitter tastes.
That’s not been a problem with Kind Bites, in my experience.
Texture is one of the most important, if not the most important, part of a chocolate truffle. Kind Bites’ Truffels have that gorgeous smooth chocolate texture, with a creamy center that is sweet and pleasant on the tongue. There is a strong underlying weed flavor, so you’ll certainly be able to tell that it’s an edible and not a leftover from Valentine’s Day. (Unless you had a suuuuuuper chill Valentine’s Day, I guess.)
Three truffles for almost $20 might be a little steep for some consumers, especially in light of the larger THC counts in some similarly priced products, but Kind Bites brings quality manufacturing and potency to the table.
At about an hour and fifteen minutes in, the truffle I ate started to kick and it felt, in a way, as if the volume on the world had been turned up slightly, but I was wrapped up inside a cloud of fuzz. My head felt stuffy and a mild numbness left my body pleasantly tingling.
The sensation was similar to being underwater, especially with a static-y hum in my ears and a gentle weight on my forehead.
Reading: It didn’t really enhance or detract from reading, though the hum in my ears did kind of block out a lot of other noises, allowing me to concentrate.
Writing: Again, it wasn’t a big plus or minus for writing. Creativity was about the same as without marijuana, but the fuzz did help with concentration.
Watching TV: So, I learned that you can control the hum. When you’re focused on watching a show, the background noises fade into the hum while your brain engages with the show you’re watching. Very enjoyable.
Playing video games: Unfortunately, the mental clarity required to play video games gets a little lost in the mix. It’s not impossible, but it is more frustrating, which isn’t exactly the emotional state I’m looking for with marijuana.
Relaxing: Here we go. As you might have guessed, that fuzzy, underwater feeling and the general body tingle is ideal for kicking back. Put on some music or maybe just listen to the overhead fan spin and let yourself drift away into a restful sleep.
Kind Bites is a quality product through and through. If you’re put off by even the slightest “green” flavor of the marijuana, this might not be your ideal product, but I found it complemented the chocolate well and the texture of the truffles was perfect.
10 mg of THC isn’t a lot for heavier users, but especially for those dipping their toes into medical marijuana, it’s a pleasant dose that can handle many of the insomnia and minor pain issues with which patients struggle.
