We were given a couple of edibles from the guys at Father Green last month, one of the items provided was a Nutella cookie with a dosage of 50mg that sells for R60 each. This price point works out to R1.20 a mg of THC, making it an affordable option for those focusing on THC content.
Appearance & Packaging
The packaging for this cookie was the same as the previous Oreo Cookie review we did for Father Green, being placed inside a marked ziplock bag. This packaging, while not extravagant, is enough to ensure the cookie remains fresh.
The cookie itself came across as appealing, the design features stamp with “MINE” going across the cookie. The general appearance was inviting to taste.
The mouth feel was excellent on this, with a light initial crunchy bite followed by a smooth and easy chew. The initial taste came across very well with moderately rich flavour profile. The taste felt very chocolate orientated and the taste of the Hazelnut in the Nutella came through very gently.
While the initial taste was very pure in the flavours, the aftertaste was a little bitter and carried a bit of a heavy cannabis flavour, something that some may enjoy while others may dislike. It wasn’t overbearing, but a little on the stronger side.
Consuming a calculated lower dosage may be tricky with all higher potency biscuits, though for most consumers I imagine this is not an issue and 50mg can serve as a good single dose for experienced smokers. We split this cookie two ways and found the high to be around what we’d expect from the advertised dose. The high lasted about 7 hours, and we didn’t really feel any side effects. We didn’t feel the often sedating effects of edibles and managed to remain productive throughout the high.
Study: Cannabis Is 114 Times Less Toxic Than Alcohol
New research published in Scientific Reports rated recreational drugs according to their toxicity. Cannabis is sitting at the very bottom of the list. But maybe a few eyebrows were raised when the report awarded alcohol 1st place in the contest of “Who does the most Damage to the Human Body?”
In fact, researchers rated cannabis 114 times less deadly than alcohol when using the margin of exposure approach, a mode of measurement that looks at a substance’s ratio of toxicological threshold and estimated human intake. Alcohol, along with heroin, tobacco, and cocaine, fell into the “high risk” category,” while ecstasy and meth were rated “medium risk.” These findings reinforce previous data that ranked recreational drugs similarly using different methods of measurement.
Compare this ranking with the United States’ list of Controlled Substances and you’ll notice some infuriating discrepancies. Cannabis (CBD also) is placed in the most restrictive category alongside ecstasy and heroin, where these drugs are considered to have no therapeutic value and a high-risk profile.
Schedule II is where you’ll find cocaine, meth, and opiate painkillers; these drugs have “accepted medicinal applications,” but still have a high abuse potential.
Meanwhile, you’ll find no trace of alcohol or tobacco on this list. Nowhere to be seen...
