I've been a fan of Cannabiscotti for a number of years now. There's not many infused biscottis to begin with so they are quite unique, but aside from these biscottis being tasty, potent, and packaged well, they're so amazingly consistent. Something very important when it comes to edibles.
What I love about Cannabiscotti too is that aside from their typical menu, they're always trying out new flavoured biscottis of which many are made custom for holidays throughout the year!
This time, I was fortunate enough to try their limited edition Nawty Neopolitan Gelato flavour, which just like Neopolitan ice cream, came as a striped biscotti with strawberry, vanilla and chocolate all in one bar!
I opened the packet and surprisingly, it smelled just like the ice cream which really brought me back! Unlike their other biscottis, this one is even more suited to a cannabis user with a lower tolerance as they can enjoy multiple flavours without having to open more than one biscotti package (and maybe regret it!). This biscotti is labelled as having 50 mg of THC from a full bud infusion using the Chem Dawg strain. So now, the only decision I had to make was which side I was going to start with!
The chocolate section tasted like the classic chocolate Cannabiscotti flavour I typically adore. The vanilla tasted heavenly. And for someone who doesn't typically like strawberry flavoured things, I found the strawberry section flavourful and very similar to how strawberry ice cream would taste. The biscotti was rich in flavour, buttery, crunchy and not too sweet. So tasty in fact, one must be careful not to munch on too much at a time!!
I've been smoking cannabis daily for many years, but I ended up eating this biscotti after a short 2-day tolerance break. My edible tolerance is usually very high, and it wouldn't lower too significantly in just two days, but wow did this biscotti pack a punch. Within 1.5 hours, my thoughts began to scatter and I knew it was kicking in. I started to feel relaxed and became quite distracted from the work I was doing at the time. I then became engrossed in another project I had no intention of starting that night which I ended up almost completing in no time!
By the 2 hour mark, I was already feeling the full effects of the Nawty Neopolitan Gelato, and nawty it was indeed. Usually I can have 50mg THC edibles without feeling any significant effect. Mind you, most of these edibles are using a THC distillate. Cannabiscotti on the other hand, use a full-bud extraction which results in producing a wide spectrum of cannabinoids (not just THC) which work synergistically to create a much stronger and more natural 'high', also resulting in far more health benefits. You can say I was floating and didn't have a care in the world. By then, I was no longer interested in my work and I blissfully melted in front of the TV with some munchies in hand.
So, if you're not a regular cannabis user, I would definitely recommend starting with just one flavour section (a third) and see how the effects play out over an hour or two. Otherwise, you may have to alter your evening plans, because I definitely had to!
Cannabiscotti does it again!
