Cheeba Chews: A Review of the Cannabis Infused Taffy
Cheeba Chews: A Review of the Cannabis Infused Taffy
One of the common challenges that cannabis enthusiasts face is the inconsistency between edibles. Sometimes, the exact same edible product from the exact same company is somehow different every time you buy it.
The main intention of Cheeba Chews is to mitigate this problem. James Howler, the maker of Cheeba Chews, acknowledges the benefit in knowing that you’re getting the exact same dose and the exact same potency every time.
As a consumer, it can be like playing lucky dip when it comes to edibles. Sometimes they’re awesome, and sometimes they’re duds – even when they are manufactured by the same people. Cheeba Chews have been the leaders in lab tested edibles so that the consumer can have confidence every single time.
What Are Cheeba Chews?
Cheeba Chews are bite-sized, single or multi-dose taffies. They come in different potencies, with the objective of being consistent every time you eat one. Each taffy is made with pretty standard ingredients, like corn syrup, soybean oil, milk, cocoa, and sugar. They are nut and gluten-free, making them relatively allergy friendly.
All Cheeba Chews are made with pharmaceutical grade cannabis extract. The extract used by Cheeba Chewed is tested regularly to ensure a consistent dosage across the range of products. The lab tests for THC, CBD, and CBN, maintaining a consistent ratio of each of these three cannabinoids.
Types Of Cheeba Chews
The range of Cheeba Chews is enormous, to say the least. It doesn’t matter what kind of user you are, there is probably a product that suits your needs perfectly. This range of products caters for those who like indica, sativa or hybrids.
The Quad Dose
The Quad Dose is probably the most popular product by Cheeba Chews. It was the first and original and still remains a favorite among Cheeba frequenters. Each Quad Dose contains 70mg of THC. This is a moderate dose for those who have been using cannabis edibles for a while. The whole dose is not recommended for those who are new to eating medical marijuana.
The Quad Dose is available in chocolate and fruity flavors, but all products in this range contain the same THC dosage. Depending on what kind of an effect you’re looking for (sativa or indica), there is an appropriate Quad Dose. The Quad Dose is available in the following forms and products:
- 70mg THC Indica Taffy
- 70mg THC Sativa Taffy
- 70mg THC Hybrid Taffy
- 70mg THC Indica Fruity Gummy (2 pack)
- 70mg THC Sativa Fruity Gummy (2 pack)
The Deca Dose is for those who aren’t afraid of a higher dose of cannabis. This is probably recommended for those who suffer from chronic pain and need strong relief or by those who need a very powerful nightcap.
Each deca dose contains 175mg of THC and comes with a warning: these are extremely potent. If you’re a novice to medical marijuana, steer clear of the full dose and break it down into smaller doses.
The Deca Dose is available in a caramel flavor which is less potent than the original, at 100 mg THC. However, we still consider this a pretty big dose. If you’re seasoned, go for it. But if you’re new to this “eating cannabinoids” thing, then be gentle with yourself. The Deca Dose is available in:
- 175mg THC Taffy
- 100mg THC Indica Caramel Taffy
- 100mg THC Sativa Caramel Taffy
- 100mg THC Hybrid Caramel Taffy
And yes. For the person who doesn’t want much to do with THC, but would rather get a mouth-load of CBD, Cheeba Chews has you in mind. The health benefits and medical applications of CBD are endless, and of course, there’s none of that stoned side effect.
However, if you like a more balanced ratio of cannabinoids, the CBD chews come in a 2:5 CBD: THC ratio, too. This makes them high in CBD, but THC is still powerfully present.
Cheeba CBD Chews come in the following varieties:
- 20mg:50mg CBD:THC Taffy (High CBD)
- 50mg:2mg CBD:THC Taffy (Pure CBD)
- 50mg CBD Fruity Gummy
Other Cheeba Chews
Aside from the products we’ve just spoken about, Cheeba Chews has a few more. They have a wide variety of flavors, including grape gummies, green apple gummies, and strawberry taffies.
There is also the 1:1 Cheeba Chews range, which contains 50 mg each of both THC and CBD. A great product for those who don’t like to discriminate between cannabinoids.
In Colorado, there is quite a range of fruity gummies. There are all kinds of flavors, including watermelon, mango, and blueberry. Different products are available in different states, so you might not find these flavors in California.
Cheeba Chews are available in California, Colorado, and Nevada.
The Recommended Cheeba Chews Dose
One of the reasons that Cheeba Chews makes such a huge variety of products is to cater for the fact that everybody has a different need when it comes to dosage. There’s no real “recommended dose”.
Depending on who you are, why you are using cannabis and what you need from it, your dose will change.
If you know yourself, dose yourself accordingly. No need to listen to our recommendations. However, if you’re new to all of this, please heed our advice and avoid one of those “I took too much” experiences.
Start with small doses – as small as 10-15mg. In a 100mg dose, that’s less than a quarter. Wait at least 30 minutes to notice effects before you start loading on more. Remember, you can always take more but you can never go backward.
How Many Cheeba Chews Can You Safely Eat?
There’s no dose of cannabis that is ever considered dangerous or fatal. The beautiful thing about marijuana is that you can’t overdose with any serious long-term side effects.
The short-term might be uncomfortable, like being unbelievably high. But you never risk putting yourself in serious danger. There’s probably more danger of over-consuming sugar in Cheeba Chews than cannabis.
That doesn’t mean that you should by 10 Deca Doses and consume them all in one sitting. That’s probably not the responsible consumption of cannabis. Cheeba Chews has thought this through carefully. Eat half. Then wait. Then eat the other half. But never fear, you’re always safe with cannabis.
How To Make Cheeba Chews?
If you’re more of a DIY person and want to make your own, you easily can. Making taffy is not that hard, and infusing them with cannabis is easy enough if you have a good quality extract lying around. Just remember that what makes Cheeba Chews special is the very carefully measured and tested doses.
It’s hard to achieve this in a regular kitchen without a testing kit, so your final product might not have the consistency in dose as the branded Cheeba Chews. However, if you’re feeling adventurous, here is a recipe.
- 1 packet of Tootsie Rolls
- 1 tablespoon of Condensed Milk
- Hash oil or another cannabis extract (This recipe makes 50 chews, so dose will depend on how strong you want it to be. If you use a whole bottle of 1000mg cannabis extract, each chew will contain 20mg.)
- Butter cooking spray
- Melt the packet of Tootsie Rolls in a pot over low heat, stirring constantly.
- Once the candy is melted, add the cannabis extract and condensed milk. Continue stirring to make sure it is all mixed together well.
- Continue stirring for at least two minutes.
- Grease the inside of a Pyrex pan or other baking tray with the butter spray. Pour the mixture into the pan and let it cool in the refrigerator for 2 hours.
- When your mixture has set, cut it into 50 even pieces.
