|"Red" Pot Pop|
After reviewing a ton of Dixie & Simple Cure products, I thought I'd branch out simply for the sake of having some new material for my loyal readers (that's you). So I picked up a Pot Pop, which is a lollipop containing 50 mg of THC. The flavor isn't listed on the bag so I didn't know what I was getting but I ended up with "red" which was my second choice. This is the highest milligram THC edible I've ever purchased, at least as a single-piece unit. Everything else has been 10 mg candies. So it's harder to gauge how much is enough for a single dose.
My first attempt with the Pot Pop was in the evening after coming down from the Strawberry Cough high. I popped it in my mouth for about 20 minutes & turned it over a bunch, probably reducing it by about 1/5th of its original size. I didn't take any bites. And thank god I didn't. It tasted pretty good for an edible so I was tempted to keep sucking on it longer than I probably should have. And this time the effects didn't kick in instantly like they do for me with gummies, so I had no idea how high I would be later. A real "this edible ain't shit" situation.
I ended up right on the border of 'too high' and 'panic attack/need a Xanax'. Luckily I was able to calm myself & just get by on my normal sleep aids (Valerian root, Unisom & melatonin) but it was a close call. I still feel somewhat out of it the next morning but not too bad. On the bright side, my tolerance has gone up as a result of this and I'll probably be able to smoke more comfortably to complete these reviews of the flower. But I won't be mindlessly sucking on Pot Pops anymore.
Overall rating: 4.8 of 5 stars. Getting too high was my fault. It's a good deal for the money ($12.50 for one pop) & tastes better than many edibles, plus it's convenient and discreet. And it WORKS. Boy, does it ever work. Pot Pops come in Red, Blue & Yellow from what I can gather, though the flavors aren't listed on the bag for some reason. That's the only thing I'd really deduct points for. But it's not a huge deal. It seems that hard edibles take longer to kick in for me than soft gummies & the like which is interesting. Will keep that in mind going forward.
