Review: Wana Gummies by Grassroots
While at Greenhouse Morris a couple weeks ago, I picked up a product from a brand I don’t usually have access to but have been looking forward to reviewing: Wana Gummies by Grassroots.
The flavor I was most interested in reviewing was the Exotic Yuzu 2:1, which contains a ten-pack of 20mg CBD/10mg THC gummies. With edibles, my sweet spot for pain relief is usually a 40mg THC/20mg CBD combo, so I also selected a ten-pack of sativa Sour Mango 100mg THC gummies and a ten-pack of Sour Raspberry 100mg THC gummies to mix and match.
When opening the containers, the aroma of all three flavors reminded me of a sweet adult cocktail. The flavors tasted better than expected. I’ve mentioned I’m not a huge fan of sour candies, but Wana has found a wonderful blend of sweet with just a touch of sour.
Sometimes CBD edibles have a bit of an aftertaste, but the the 2:1 Exotic Yuzu gummies, which are made with terpene-enhanced THC distillate and inspired by the rare Asian Yuzu citrus fruit, delivered a cross between lemon, mandarin, and grapefruit in smell and flavor. The Sour Raspberry hybrid and Sour Mango sativa gummies also contained their respective namesake flavors and were as tasty as candy-store gummies.
In previous edible reviews, I’ve mentioned the onset for edibles hits me quicker than most others. But the Wana gummies were the first Illinois gummies I’ve sampled that delivered a slow build to the full peak of the high. I picked up the Wana gummies right before a couple days of physical labor to help fight my chronic inflammation and muscle soreness.
During the day, I medicated on Wana gummies for longer periods of time at about half the dosage. The 2:1 Exotic Yuzu gummies allowed me to take one gummy earlier in the day and add on a gummy whenever needed. I usually ate an extra Sour Mango sativa gummy to enhance to the cerebral high and counter any drowsiness from the CBD.
Though I normally can’t tell the difference between sativa and indica gummies, the Mango sativa gummies were slightly more energetic than the Raspberry hybrid gummies. The body buzz was strong, but I was able to function physically for hours while completing chores. And by night, the prolonged day doses had dramatically reduced my overall body inflammation.
Twice, I was not able to medicate at lower doses during the day. So those nights after physical work, I downed a 2:1 Exotic Yuzu gummy and three Raspberry hybrid gummies to smother the night inflammation and soreness. About halfway through the buzz, I ate another 2:1 Exotic Yuzu gummy for the CBD and a Sour Mango sativa gummy to fight drowsiness while binging season four of Fargo.
Even when I added an extra Raspberry and Mango gummy more than I should have, the buzz remained smooth and euphoric and not overwhelmingly heavy.
Overall, the Wana gummies again proved the variances in effects of different edibles. I’m pleased I was finally able to review Wana gummies. I’d definitely incorporate more Wana gummies to fight inflammation and muscle aches, especially if I new I had a few days of physical work ahead of me.
