I’m a sucker for passion fruit. Like a huge sucker for it. There’s something about that wild, exotic fruit that pulls me in every freaking time. Doesn’t matter what it is. It could be a passion fruit flavored tea, a passion fruit smoothie, or literally anything else on Earth. Whatever it is, I’m on it. I’d probably be tempted to lick passion fruit scented lotion if I could find it. Screw off. Don’t judge me.
Anyway, that love for passion fruit flavored food now extends to weed edibles, all thanks to Kanha Treats, a line of edibles from Sunderstorm.
The Kanha (pronounced “canna” — of course) Cannabis Infused Gummies are now on the shelves at Prohibition Herb, and these gummies come in all kinds of flavors: luscious lemon, cran-pomegranate, green apple, blood orange bliss, and — you guessed it — passion fruit paradise. Some flavors come in gummies with 10 milligrams of THC each, while others come with a different ratio of CBD to THC. So, there’s variety in both the flavors and the ratios.
And, as you may have guessed, when I was offered the chance to try these suckers out, I jumped on it. Passion fruit and indica all the way, babaaaaaaay!
The only real downside to the passion fruit flavor is that the gummies contain 5 milligrams of THC rather than the standard 10 milligrams. That’s OK, though. I have a higher tolerance for edibles than I once did, but I have no problem doubling up if it means I get to eat more passion fruit.
After I picked these suckers up from Prohibition, I was obviously eager to try them out. I wasn’t just intrigued by the flavor, either. I was also intrigued by the idea that the indica in these gummies would knock me the heck out. I haven’t been sleeping very well lately — a combination of stress and ADD brain, which likes to wake me up with Queen songs lately (Don’t Stop Me Now in particular, which of obvious irony) — and I really needed something that was going to help me fall asleep and then stay asleep. In other words, a monumental task was placed upon these gummies.
Were they up to the challenge? Well, yes and no.
The first night I took them, I only took one gummy. My well-documented fear of gummies keeps me from taking multiple at once. I like to know how the dang things are going to affect me before I end up wandering my house high and half-asleep with a bag of chips courtesy of some stronger-than-expected edibles. Yes, it has happened a lot in the past.
And, as you likely deducted from my yes and no, the 5 milligram gummy wasn’t enough to do the trick. It was, however, freaking delicious, so no regrets there. I do not mind eating a passion fruit gummy that doesn’t work. I just smoked my way into oblivion a couple of hours after eating it instead.
The second night, though? Well. The second night I tripled the dosage, which meant I got to ingest three of those delicious gummies, which are bright purple and covered with sugar. They don’t taste like weed at all, so it really was like just eating a few freaking awesome gummies.
Unsurprisingly, those three little passion fruit marbles did the trick. And boy, did they do the trick quickly. It took maybe 20 minutes from the time I ingested them to the time they hit me like a ton of bricks.
The good news, though, is that they were a gentle ton of bricks. It was like, sober, sober, sober, sober, STONED. The waves of THC started fogging up my head and it felt like 2.54 seconds flat between stoned and asleep.
Not that I can confirm that, mind you. I was freaking asleep, but if I had to venture a guess, I’d say it was about 2.54 seconds, give or take. I’m very good at math. Trust me.
Even better? I. FREAKING. STAYED. ASLEEP. I could have even slept in if I’d been given the opportunity. Unfortunately, I was not. I was late on the deadline for this review.
And, these gummies didn’t give me that laggy, hungover feeling that can come with too many edibles. I was able to jump out of bed and get my ass in gear. I just didn’t want to.
I’d rate these bad boys a 10. I love them. They’re passion fruit flavored and they knock me out completely. Ain’t NOTHING wrong with that.
