I was excited to get my hands on Natural Cannabis Company’s Gourmet Sweet and Spicy Snack Mix ($18 — 4 oz). As a late night snacker, sweet and salty, or spicy flavors best satisfy the cravings that crop up during midnight Seinfeld reruns. Of course, these gourmet snack mixes are fantastic for all kinds of activities. The 4 oz. size contains approximately four doses, so you can toss it in your bag for events, camping, backpacking, music festivals…pretty much anywhere where you want or need to be smoke-free. Bonus: it’s resealable.
Upon opening the bag, you get the sweet, nutty smell of your traditional trial mix and to a Lucky Charms fan’s delight, there were colorful marshmallow pieces sprinkled throughout. The bag contains a warning to begin with ¼ of a recommended dose, wait an hour and then ingest more if needed. This is great advice for novice edible users and I’m glad to see it printed boldly on the packaging. Having familiarity with a variety of edibles, I felt confident enough to help myself to an ounce of mix, about one dose.
The Natural Cannabis Company Gourmet Sweet and Spicy Snack Mix contains corn and rice cereal, pretzels, peanuts, marshmallows, candy-coated chocolates, and butterscotch chips tossed in a spicy chili sauce made with CO2 infused butter. At first, you get the sweet taste explosion of the chocolate, butterscotch and marshmallows, then the hint of salt from the nuts and pretzels. The spice comes in the aftertaste when the chili and soy flavors present themselves in a tantalizingly tasty afterburn. It’s a quite unique and delicious flavor.
Sure enough, approximately an hour later I began to feel the effects. I experienced it as a floaty, dreamy, heady high as opposed to body-heavy relaxation. For that reason, I think it would be ideal for active, energizing events or for when you still need to be social and function, but don’t make any important decisions!
Natural Cannabis Company prides itself on product purity, especially during the cannabis extraction process, which makes for some highly potent products. One recommended dose happened to work well for my personal body chemistry and tolerance levels, so I recommend that novice edible users follow the advice to start small and wait before eating more. Don’t leave a snack bowl out and mindlessly gobble while binge watching Stranger Things or you may end up much higher than you want!
Natural Cannabis Co. Gourmet Snack Mixes come in four additional savory flavors including Sriracha, Thai Curry, Ranch and Chili-Lime. Check them out at https://shopmarijuana.com/product/ncc-gourmet-snacks-mixes/
Summary: Great portable product that satisfies both sweet and savory cravings. Dreamy, heady high. Start with a portion of the recommended dose, wait about an hour and then ingest more if desired.
