Ingredients & Nutritional Facts:

Cannabinoids Profile: THCa 0mg; THC 50mg; CBDa 0mg; CBD 0mg (LK Pure Labs)

TIP: To learn how you can use this cannabinoids data to better your health, see the Cannabinoids Library.

Physical Characteristics: Closely resembles a Snyder’s brand Pretzel Nibbler. High quality.

Flavor Profile:
In addition to an expected salted pretzel taste, generous seasonings were also added for flavor. These nugs were excellent tasting. I’ve been very impressed with Nature’s Grace’s edibles, and these pretzels are no exception.   
Dosage Taken:
11 pretzel nugs, or approximately 34.375mg THC

16 total pretzel nugs 
÷  50mg THC  =  3.125mg activated THC per pretzel nug

Time Elapsed Before Feeling Effects:
1 hour  30 minutes 

Total Duration of Effects:
2 hours 30min

For me, this was a mild set of effects. The high felt like an even split. Even though I ingested about 34mg of THC, it felt more like a 20mg dose. That said, my experience may very well be different from others’ experiences with this product. When it comes to cannabis, and especially edibles, it’s common for people to have different experiences and outcomes.

To be equitable, effects and potency are assessed within the context of a 34mg dose only, not whether 34mg is therapeutically strong enough or not for the reviewer.     

Potency Scale for Experienced Imbibers: 

IMPORTANT: 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 G.I. discomfort. May also help with some mild body aches and pains, mood (and more)

Rating: 3/5
As with all of the Nature’s Grace edibles I have tried, these pretzels can stand alone as a high quality food product. For me, the effects were fairly flat / one-dimensional and not as potent as expected at the dose I ingested.
