I bought a small bag of Smarties the other day. I got those because someone had mentioned an easy candy application with them and Green Dragon tincture and I wanted to duplicate and verify his experience and they were the only dextrose candies that I could find over here and access. Each roll contains 15 small round candies with concave surfaces on both sides of various flavors like a little bowl.
I had to limit my experiment because I have an extremely limited supply of GD and I didn't want to waste any if it didn't pan out so I used 1/3 of a roll, 5 candies. I really was only checking if was broken down by the GD or if it absorbed and not expecting much for effects. Just 5 little bitty candies.
I could have just soaked them in a pool of GD but then I wouldn't really know how much was in each one so I set them all flat in the bottom of a small beaker. The concavity was clearly visible and I placed 3 drops of 20mg/ml GD into the bowl of each candy. 3 drops filled it just right.
I just sat there for a few minutes watching them to see whether they did any tricks or barked but they just sat there and absorbed the GD. In a few minutes it was gone in every candy and they looked no different than before.
I let them sit for about fifteen minutes to let them dry because I didn't want to take a chance they would crumble. They didn't crumble and they seemed stable and just like candy. I ate one to see if there was any taste and the only thing I noticed was the original flavor of the candy. I ate the other four and figured that was the end of it for that day.
I hadn't intended to share this until I'd been able to check it out a little better in the future but the results were too apparent to ignore. I started feeling it within a few minutes as it started flowing in through my oral tissue. Within a half hour I was really buzzed and it continued building. Until then I had been in tremendous pain all day and would not have been able to write this up but here it is. Must be something to it.
Each candy was 3 drops with a total of 15 for all five candies. That's about a half dropper and it's sublingual because of the nature of the candy. I also think this would work with larger buttermints and I was going to use those but couldn't find any, just the Smarties. Any of those candies with that kind of texture that will absorb should work.
This was just the first try. A number of folks have now tried this and it has been verified over and over again. I started putting 3 drops on each side of the Smartie while others have used the same then added another coat after the first one dried. Those are dangerously potent. It's better to drop the GD onto it instead of letting it soak in a volume of GD and you can control the dosage better. The cannabis oil pretty much dries on the exterior more than absorbed and the more you use, the darker the candies will be with a slight cannabis flavor that doesn't really rise above the candy flavors.
It takes a few minutes to work up some and you would store them in an airtight container to avoid oxidation if you're going to keep them for a while. They are a very convenient and consistent for dosing. Take them to a party and you'll be very popular. Because it's sugar based it will upload quickly.
Give it a try and tell us what you think. @HappyHemper - maybe your wife would like them.
And that led to this.
May The PEZ Be With You!
(Another Silly Candy Project)
I had been searching for some PEZ candies to try like the Smarties but they're harder to find these days. I finally found some at the local Walmart clearance aisle so I picked one up. It was a choice of Star Wars or Justice League so Darth Vader was my choice. I wanted the PEZ because the dispenser would make it easier to carry if you were going out.
Each PEZ has 3 drops of GD on each side although that little trench in the middle doesn't hold much but anything that ran over just absorbed. Once they dried I put them in the dispenser and the rest is history.
I know it's not a big thing but it does have its uses. The way I see to use it is as microdosing throughout an event. If a person were to eat a couple to start then pop one every couple of hours. It'd be great for a rave.
I have another quickie GD edible ready in 1 minute 10 seconds in the microwave but I don't want to wear out my welcome so I'll save it for a little later. GD is great stuff and you can do a ton of stuff with it and ReikoX's process leads to great results.
