JUNK it up! by Megz
Closely affiliated to Leif Goods and Physic Balm comes a new JUNK line, so let's talk about their JUNK.
Currently at both of The Agrestic's we have these tiny little amazing-tasting Vegan chocolate covered marshmallow bon-bon's. Every box comes with 6 deliciously infused salted chocolate covered marshmallows. According to the Suggested Servings listed on the back of the box, a consumer should start at a low dose of just ½ a marshmallow [and while some find this to be the perfect dose, I had to eat a bit more].
After consuming two full bon-bon's, what I had noticed the most was the salt and chocolate fusion. I absolutely LOVED the salty bits mixed directly into the cannabis infused chocolate, as well as the fluffy lightness of the marshmallow itself. I then sat watching TV and doing random things about my house, after a solid hour I began to notice some effects taking on. I was relaxed to the core and to be honest a bit sleepy [as deep relaxation usually send me to sleep] but I was able to keep my composure and finished my tasks before settling on the couch for the rest of the night.
Marshmallow Bon-Bon-Appetit by Anaeka
I had a sore throat recently, and the last thing I want to do with a sore throat is smoke flower or extracts and exacerbate the problem area. I bought these Marshmallow Bon-Bons not just because I wanted an edible to have a fun time with, but because I knew that they could also soothe my sore throat at the same time. The Marshmallow Bon-Bons come in a pack of six, with a total of 40.7mg THC and 56.3mg CBD. Junk is a subdivision of Leif Medicinals, and edibles from Leif are interesting because they are made with full extract cannabis oil (FECO, also known as RSO). The cannabis in these edibles is only found in the outer chocolate layer, and to me, had no chlorophyll or plant-like flavor to it. The outer-shell of the Bon-Bons tasted like a high quality dark chocolate. There was a surprising saltiness to the Bon-Bons as they are sprinkled with chocolate salt and the savory quality of the salt mixed with the slight bitterness of the dark chocolate provided a good balance to the sweet marshmallow filling. The marshmallow was a delicious creamy flavor, and seemed denser than a traditional marshmallow that you would buy from the store for making Smores.
The recommended dose is half a marshmallow, but knowing that I have a higher tolerance of about 25 to 30mg THC I ate half of a pack of the Bon-Bons. After about an hour the effects of the Bon-Bons started to kick in for me and it took another hour for the high to fully creep in. I reached a very comfortable high that lasted for another two or three hours. The first thing I noticed as the high set in was that my throat no longer hurt when I swallowed. In fact I felt terrific, like I wasn't sick at all. A warmth spread over my face and chest, and I had a good body buzz tingling on my forearms and across my face. I felt very goofy and happy, and had a great time watching a movie with my partner. I loved these so much that I bought a second pack the next day, not only is it a tasty treat, but a great high to boot.
