I Tried Cannabis Mints For The First Time, And Yup, I'm A Fan Now
"For the perfect microdose experience."
So when I found out that cannabis mints existed, I thought it would be interesting to try them out. The ones I tried in particular are called "Old Fashioned THC Mints," and they're from Lowell Farms.
And the Old Fashioned THC Mints are their first-ever edible. They're infused with 2.5 milligrams of cannabis for a microdose experience.
Here were my questions going into the taste test:
My initial thoughts were that the packaging is very pretty and cleverly designed. (You have to use a special twist knob to pop open the airtight seal.) And, to my pleasant surprise, they smelled like candy canes. Festive!
So, what did they taste like? Just like they smelled...like candy canes.
The mints were sweet and mildly pepperminty — there are definitely "stronger" mints out there, so this seemed like more of a palate refresher than a true breath mint. However, if I didn't know these were cannabis-based, I would never have guessed.
Was there a ~nasty~ aftertaste? Nope!
I was worried that these mints would leave a kind of medicinal or strange aftertaste, but they honestly did not. Another pleasant surprise.
And finally, did they work? Yep.
I opted to try just one ("for beginners," as the packaging says). The result left me feeling calm and my body relaxed. The experience didn't last particularly long, but I imagine that with a larger dose (i.e., more mints at a time), your high would be stronger and last longer.
