SpacedOut Extracts Overview:
SpacedOut Extracts is a small edible company operating out of Toronto, specializing in THC and CBD infused gummies. I first met Spaced Out and got a chance to try their Space Drop gummies in 2017 at a local "cannabis farmer's market" featuring local edible vendors, and their gummies have only gotten better since then!
Finding SpacedOut Extracts:
Spaced Out Extracts can often be seen vending at local cannabis events and 'farmer's markets' such as the Canna Crawl in Hamilton or the Karma Cup that happened recently in Toronto. If you want to get in touch with or stay updated on SpacedOut Extracts, it's best to follow their facebook page at facebook.com/spacedoutgta.
Space Drops Pricing:
Pricing for Space Drops varies on the dosage and whether they are THC or CBD infused. The Space Drops we're reviewing contain 300mg of THC (100mg per gummy), and the pack typically retails for around $30.
Space Drops Appearance & Packaging
Unlike many of the legacy market edibles available online and in local markets, Space Drops stand out above the rest with their colourful and professional packaging. These gummies come in heat-sealed, custom-printed, plastic zip lock bags with detailed labeling and a window in the front.
One of our biggest pet peeves with edibles is the lack of ingredient or nutritional information being included on the packaging, which is another reason why we love Space Drops. Their packaging displays dosage, flavours, ingredients, nutritional information and warnings very clearly. It's also a nice touch to be able to see the gummies in the packet without having to open it.
Space Drops Smell, Texture and Taste
We've had many edible gummies made by craft producers in the legacy market, and not many of them can be compared to the quality one would expect from regular commercial gummies, either because of the texture, the appearance or the flavour. But Space Drops do a great job! They taste really sweet and fruity, and they're soft and chewy! Plus, did we mention each gummy contains a whopping 100mg of THC?
As they're made with distillate and not something like RSO or full spectrum oil, they have no smell and have no cannabis taste making them perfect for your secret stash on the go.
The only thing we noticed is that the sugar didn't really stick to the gummies like others you've often seen, but aside from that, these gummies were great! Plus, they certainly pack a punch with no lethargic effects!
Royal Highness is a Toronto-based cannabis edible company, specializing in handcrafted, high quality, cannabis-infused chocolates, desserts and treats. From chocolates, to candies, cookies and so much more, there's a great variety of things to choose from in their menu, all made by hand by a licensed Red Seal pastry chef. Customers can place orders online to have any of their items shipped right to their door and even book classes and parties!
I came across Royal Highness visiting one of the local Toronto cannabis vendor markets a while ago where I tried their amazing infused Twix-style chocolate, and was recently fortunate enough to try some of her newest treats. I had seen updates from Royal Highness and was excited to try their new infused Oreo-style cookie I had seen them developing.
Consuming these edibles was such a pleasure, and after having the chocolate bar in one sitting, the M'Oreo cookie and Terple in another sitting, and the candies while travelling, I can happily say that each time, I was able to enjoy the wonderful effects of the cannabis, each time leaving me happy and relaxed.
Thank you Royal Highness for the opportunity to review some of your wonderful artisanal goodies. For more information, visit www.royalhighnesstoronto.com to learn more.
Strain Name: Death Pink
Strain Type: Indica
Death Pink is a heavy indica strain, grown by crossing Pink Kush and Death Bubba, both of which offer very sedating effects and a strong terpene profile. These buds were purchased from SeaOfGreenDispensary for a very reasonable price, and it definitely did not disappoint.
These large, dense buds were dark green with orange hairs, covered in a thick layer of creamy-white trichomes, and manicured well. The buds were also cured nicely and had a good density and moisture level... not to dry, and not too wet.
Smell & Taste
One of the stinkier strains in our current collection, these buds exploded in gassy and earthy aromas when squeezing or cracking them open, capturing a nice balance of both Pink and Bubba Kush's typical scents.
We enjoy smoking cannabis in small, tightly-rolled joints using very thin rolling papers. It is not uncommon to find strains of cannabis that may smell great when dried but offer little flavour and taste when smoking, but in this case the flavour was quite present, as well as consistent with the smell. Although not as strong as its scent, flavours were earthy with a pleasing hint of liquorice.
As this strain was smoked, a ring of resin would pool around the edge of the hot ash of the joint, displaying just how concentrated in oils this cannabis was.
Consistent with effects from Pink Kush and Death Bubba, this strain of Death Pink took effect within only a few minutes of smoking, offering mind-numbing and almost body-numbing effects, resulting in a restful mind and some high levels of couch-lock.
Although not in any pain at the time, we can almost be certain that this strain would be highly effective for pain relief, anxiety and as a sleep aid. Within just 45 minutes of smoking, it was easy to lie down and fall into a deep sleep quickly.
Smell & Taste: 8/10
Gold Era Wellness is a new and emerging wellness company based out of Toronto, producing handcrafted CBD products for people and pets since 2017. Their product line includes CBD dog treats, Anubis CBD Drops for dogs, CBD capsules and their MCT369 CBD oil blend.
MCT369 CBD Oil
Most oils in the marketplace made to be taken orally, whether THC or CBD, tend to be mixed with an oil like MCT or grapeseed. But Gold Era Wellness takes their MCT369 CBD Oil a large step further by adding essential Omega 3, 6 and 9 fatty acids to the mix! Essential Omega oils like these are highly beneficial and are contained in foods like fish and hemp oils, that aren't commonly present in a modern, highly processed diet. Combining these oils with CBD makes this a very useful natural supplement that can be used daily.
Unlike most CBD products in the market, MCT369 CBD Oil contains a whopping 1500mg of CBD in every 30ml dropper bottle! This is quite unheard of, as most CBD products contain no where near the amount of CBD and are often very expensive despite this fact. What many also don't know is that most people suffering from serious or chronic health conditions need at least a daily dose of 100mg of CBD, which would make most CBD products in the market completely unaffordable for the average user.
The oil comes in a 30ml tamper-evident dropper bottle with attractive gold labelling that is neatly detailed. Better packaging than I've seen on some commercially available products!
Finding MCT369 CBD Oil
Gold Era Wellness products can be purchased exclusively on the Canadian mail order site, www.metromeds.ca.
Pricing & Selection
The Gold Era Wellness product line includes CBD dog treats, Anubis CBD Drops for dogs, CBD capsules and their MCT369 CBD Oil.
The MCT369 CBD Oil comes in a 30ml bottle and is priced extremely reasonably at $90. Given that CBD generally tends to retail for up to $100 per 1000mg, getting 1500mg combined with 3 essential omega oils for under $100 is incredible.
Unique to Gold Era Wellness
Given that CBD has no psychoactive effects, it's clear that any CBD user is only using it for medicinal reasons so it's painful to see when CBD products are overpriced, especially when hemp cultivation is so prevalent down south in the USA. It becomes evident that Gold Era Wellness, despite it being a small company with a small budget that makes such high quality products offered at such a low price, shows how much they care for their customers... or should I say 'patients'.
Smell, Texture, Taste
Gold Era Wellness MCT369 CBD Oil is odourless, colourless and flavourless. This makes incorporating it into one's diet quite easy as it can be added to a variety of drinks or food without it interfering with the flavour.
