Ratio gummies combining CBD and THC used to be one of my least favorite categories to review, but as the years have passed and my tastes have evolved, I’ve gone as far as adding these combo edibles to my daily use as a sort of cannabinoid vitamin. I recently stopped in Nature’s Care Co. in Rolling Meadows and spotted The Botanist 5:1 Peach Nectarine Gummies on the menu, so I picked up a jar to review.
The Botanist Peach Nectarine 5:1 gummies came as 20 gummies with 5mg of THC and 25mg of CBD per piece. The ingredients were sugar, corn syrup, water, natural flavor, pectin, natural color, malic acid, citric acid, sodium citrate, CBD isolate, cannabis oil, and terpenes.
Twenty half spheres, roughly quarter-sized, almost glowed in the jar with a cloudy translucent tangerine orange coloring. A rough sugar coating speckled the candies with tiny white spots. These gummies had a mouthfeel that was right between classic gummy and harder gumdrop candies with just a small amount of pushback against a bite.
Sweet and fruity, these gummies leaned harder into the peach than nectarine with the citrus appearing midway on the palate to cut through the sweet artificial peach that opened the experience. Some bitterness on the finish indicated the heavy CBD content but not enough to stop me from instantly returning for another gummy.
These gummies’ effect set in after just over an hour after eating. Low doses of one or two gummies helped to loosen my joints and calm me down slightly. Heavier doses of five or more gummies created a strong release of muscle and joint tension and a mental peace that kept me steady and clearheaded for well over an hour
The tail end of the experience no matter the dose always turned heavier, weighing me down physically and leaving me ready for a nap or a full sleep, if taken late enough. For more Illinois News Joint reviews, visit here.
