Columbia Care Pre-Rolls

I recently picked up a five pack of pre-rolls from my local Columbia Care. I’m grateful for the consistent, top-notch customer service at my local store, as an aside. Anyway, let’s talk pre-rolls.

These pre-rolls burned well, down to the filter. No canoe-ing, nothing out of the ordinary when it came to how it burned.

The taste was pretty good; not too harsh or bad tasting, for a joint. Joints sometimes seem to have somewhat of a strong taste as the paper and cannabis burns, but these guys weren’t too bad. The strain was Mojito, a sativa-leaning strain that’s 80% sativa and 20% indica, according to the packaging label. THC percentage is 16.5%, also according to the label.

I would buy these again, perhaps the next time I am in need of pre-rolls. Since I’m not great at rolling my own joints and I prefer the 0.5g size joints as opposed to a full gram, this option from Columbia Care is a good one for me.

Retail price: $27 for a 5-pack of 0.5g-sized pre-rolls

Buy again?: Yes

Curaleaf Nano Drops Review

The 30mL bottle containing a total of 150mg THC retails for $30

Lately, I’ve been enjoying using the Nano THC Drops from Curaleaf. Here is a quick overview of the product:

  • Water-soluble THC drops can be mixed into any beverage
  • Nano technology allows for fast onset of effects
  • Taste isn’t bad when used moderately
  • Three flavors available: Lime, Grapefruit, Unflavored

When I first tried these drops I used them the wrong way – do not do what I did! I put the drops directly into my mouth instead of into a drink. The taste was not great. But on the plus side, when you use these drops correctly by mixing them into a drink and using around 2mL (10mg THC) per cup (8 fluid ounces) of beverage, they don’t taste bad at all. The taste of these drops – even the unflavored ones – is sweet; the kind of sweet is like that of a diet soda with artificial sweetener. My preferred mixer for these drops is flavored sparkling water. The result, with the drops mixed in, is a slightly sweetened version of the sparkling water.

Curaleaf, the MMTC that manufactures this product, has a blog post about nano molecular technology and what it means for “nano” products such as this one. According to the blog post, nanomolecular technology refers to extremely tiny, water-soluble cannabinoids, hence how the product is able to dissolve in water or other drinks. Also according to the blog, nano products work faster than other types of oral or edible products because you don’t have to wait for your body to digest them.

Overall, the taste isn’t bad when you use the ratio I listed above. 1mL of the product is worth 5mg of THC, and I typically add 2mL – so 10mg THC – to each of my drinks when I use this product.

The effects do seem to kick in rather quickly with this product. I feel like I can notice the effects by the time I’ve finished drinking the drink that I’ve put the drops into. The effects, for me, with around 10mg of THC in one cup, equal a relaxed feeling overall. This product would probably be great for anyone who wants to monitor their intake of THC carefully and those who micro-dose their medication.
