FYI: Over the two weeks I'll be reviewing a variety of edibles, which I purchased with my generous December donations.

Physical Characteristics: Looked exactly like typical non-cannabis, powered hot cocoa mix.

Flavor Profile:
I enjoyed this hot cocoa. It was not too heavy on the cocoa and not too sweet either.  

Dosage Taken:
1 serving, 30mg THC (10 oz cup of cocoa)

Time Elapsed Before Feeling Effects:
1 hour 00 minutes

Effects Peaked at:
2 hour 00 minutes

Total Duration of Effects:
3 hours 30 minutes

A borderline mild/moderate total body relaxation with some cerebral euphoria from start to finish. 

To be equitable, effects and potency are assessed within the context of a 30mg dose only, not whether 30mg is therapeutically strong enough or not for the reviewer.     

Potency Scale for Experienced Imbibers: 

The effects were definitely noticeable and long lasting, and a bit more potent than is typical for me with a 30mg dose.

The effects, duration and peak times will vary from patient to patient, sometimes significantly. The effects described in this review will not necessarily always reflect the experiences of others. Please be responsible when using edibles. The #1 reason for a bad experience is being impatient and over-medicating. For more information, see About Edibles and How to Safely Consume Them.

May Help With:
Helped with mood and mild G.I. spasms. May also help with sleep, mild body aches, stress (and more)

Rating: 4/5
An excellent medicated hot cocoa.

It appears 2018 is going to be more gut wrenching than last year,  so I'm confident you're going to need my unbiased medical cannabis product assessments more than ever. 

And remember, the next time you turn around, turn around again ...'cause I’ll be there.
