I mentioned in my Blue Dream 1:1 Live Resin Cartridge review that I also would be reviewing the Mango and Raspberry matter.lite Sour Gummy Bites by Matter, and I’m finally getting around to it. PharmaCann, which operates dispensaries under the name Verilife, recently launched matter.lite.
Matter introduced the matter.lite products as a “new line of lighter cannabis gummies, vapes, and tinctures for those who want to enjoy life’s occasions and still feel in control.” While at Verilife Ottawa, I picked up the Raspberry and Mango flavors. Each childproof pouch contained ten gummy bites. Each Gummy Bite contained 15 calories per serving.
Each Raspberry Gummy Bites contained 2.5mg of THC and smelled like sweet raspberry. The flavor was tart (and as mentioned I’m not a huge fan of sour), but the tart raspberry flavor and touch of sweetness blended well for a tart treat many will enjoy. The front end hit with tartness, but as I chewed, the gummy sweetened.
The ingredients included corn syrup, sucrose, water, pectin, dextrose, raspberry flavor, citric acid, cannabis oil, sweet potato extract (color), carrot extract (color), trisodium citrate, hydrogenated vegetable oil, and Vitamin E TRGS.
Each Mango 1:1 Gummie Bite contained 2.5mg THC and 2.5mg CBD. The aroma led with zesty mango but also had a subtle orange caramel smell. The tart Mango dominated the front end, and a hint of sweet citrus developed on the back end.
The ingredients included corn syrup, sucrose, water, pectin, dextrose, mango flavor, citric acid, cannabis oil, apple extract (color), carrot extract (color), pumpkin extract (color), trisodium citrate, hydrogenated vegetable oil, and Vitamin E TRGS.
As mentioned in previously reviews, I’m more of a macrodoser than a microdoser. But for this review, I attempted something a little different. As I’ve also repeated, I enjoy a 1:2 ratio of CBD to THC. For the Gummy Bites, I ate one of each flavor a few hours before bed for about a week (expect for one night when I tweaked my back and had to macrodose) and found that I did get better overall sleep, especially through the first four hours. The next morning, I also felt less inflammation.
Patients who enjoy microdosing should enjoy the new matter.lite product line. For patients who are new to cannabis and edibles, matter.lite also would be a good place to start. Then work their way up, if need be. What I also enjoyed about 2.5mg bites was that I could set precise low and high doses and mix the 1:2 ratio to hit me sweet spot.
This new matter.lite line is sold exclusively at Verilife dispensaries in Illinois, which includes Arlington Heights, Galena, North Aurora, Ottawa, River North, Romeoville, Rosemont, and Schaumburg (Coming Soon).
