    Ahhh yeah im a noob I don't know these things :p. Being in California spoils me in some aspects as a lot of stuff is produced here due to the "emerald triangle"

    I have never tried one, but after hearing about some of the companies practices, like for instance, that they are simply taking tootsie rolls, melting them down, infusing them with thc/hash oil/whatever and then rolling them back into shape.

    If that's true, then... :suspicious:

    I also heard this. Seems like a bad practice, but also cool that you know you're getting a real tootsie roll with added fun

    1.) Debilitating migraine comes out of nowhere. Severe nausea and throbbing, stabbing head hurt.
    2.) 1/2 of Quad Dose CBD Chew, not chewed and swallowed, but left in mouth till wee tiny or dissolves.
    3.) 5-10 minutes nausea almost completely gone, migraine weakend and gone within 30 minutes. All symptoms relieved by 35 minutes.
    5.) Devoting serious :love: to the makers of Cheeba Chews!!
    6.) Hopefully helping someone who suffers similarly by posting.

    I can only hope they will be legal everywhere in the world. Pain relief without expensive pain pills that can and do KILL.

    Wow glad you ha such great results! I really do hope they make a vegan one soon so us vegan and/or dairy allergic folk can partake too. I will pass that on though I have a pen pal who suffers from serious migraines who is considering MM.

    I would think their super secret extraction method is CO2 extraction which is ultra clean and expensive. it will be quite a while before this extraction technique goes mainstream but everyone wilol able to make their own type of ( your own chews)

    I don't know where you are at but in cali you can get CO2 extracted concentrates at dispensaries which you could likely melt an mix into the "dough" of the chew.

    I hear a lot of the "CO2" oil in dispensaries isnt actually CO2 and is just marked as such to charge higher prices. Could be wrong but im probably not

    Im sure it happens. All I can do is try it if I can find it. Im sensitive to butane extracted essential oils and using butane lighters so I figure best try to stay away

    I've also heard that but realized that the CO2 oil I've been getting is consistent in everything (looks, price, consistency, etc) and never shattery. The machinery for CO2 extracts is in the tens of thousands of dollars easily so the incentive is there to relabel. The weird thing about the CO2 oil is that it has the same underlying "base" taste and then also strain/batch-specific tastes on top of that. The "CO2" taste is what I've come to use to verify.

    I'm mostly vegan myself, but medibles are a fuzzy gray area for me. I feel a little bad about it, but options are limited.

    Thanks for the tip. I haven't seen those around here in Cali. I see 420 bars a lot and those pack a lot more punch (generally good but for a no tolerance gal like me I have to be careful) it would be nice to find a lower THC one like yours or a high CBD one.

    Yes dairy does seem to be the fat of choice for infusing MJ. I wish they would use more coconut oil. I know coconut allergy is pretty prevalent but so is dairy so give us vegans an highly allergic folks a break on the dairy! Once I get a feel for edibles im happy enpugh to make my own. I will be infusing coconut oil for topical use anyway may as well eat it :)

    I've actually only ever bought them in CA. That was just the only picture I could find and it's from a CO review site.

    If you look for them, I'm sure you could find them. Also, there's a company out of Venice Beach that makes some vegan stuff, I've seen some of their cookies down here in SD.

    How funny. It must be where I live. Im in a small area, if you don't know the two freeway exits you miss my town and the next lol. My dispensary usually calls me up a week or so after an order to see what I liked and ask if there is anything they can try to stock for me so I will bring it up with them. The 420 bars come fromt he venice beach company :) most of their other stuff isn't vegan but the bars are. I also have other allergies like nuts which make it hard. Most of the fats that use I cant have :(. Plus I cant have gluten to I have to watch out for the alcohol extractions. I found a company that does an indica alcohol/honey tinc that uses grape alcohol so that's on my to try list.

    Just to let you know, most of the tinctures are made from distilled grain alcohol (normally made from corn), which has no gluten. I know Everclear has stated that there is no residual gluten in their alcohol.

    So, if you want to make some good home-made tincture, you can definitely use that.

    Good to know but unfortunately im corn allergic as well. I can tolerate small amounts of it but I try to avoid it even trace amount in anything I use regularly. For homemade I have some Trader Joes Grape Vodka but I prefer to get the oil done first. My body doesn't tolerate alcohol well so id have to put in in something else and evaporate it anyway

    If you can handle vegetable glycerin you can make a tincture with that as well... like weed flavored honey ;)
