Infuzionz Strawberry Shortcake Bar 25 MG Review

Infuzionz Strawberry Shortcake Bar 25 MG Review

Eating cannabis in a variety of forms has been around for centuries, but the recent legalization of retail marijuana sales in Colorado and Washington in 2012 has sparked a huge market for new, tastier forms of edible marijuana treats. Do you have questions about marijuana edibles? Check out this Complete Guide to Marijuana Edibles to answer any questions.

Marijuana edibles crafted by the Denver area extraction company, Infuzionz, may be found exclusively at all 6 locations of  The Green Solution dispensaries in Colorado. In this review, you will learn details of the 25 mg Infuzionz Strawberry Shortcake Bar. The 25 mg version is only available to patients with a valid medical marijuana registry card. The same treat is available for recreational purposes on the retail side, but those will only contain 10 mg per serving. The Colorado campaign, “Start low, go slow,” indicates that novice users should ingest a maximum of 10 mg the first time.

25 mg THC Marijuana Dosage

This medicated treat is approximately 2 inches by 2 inches of sweet strawberry and vanilla cake. The first, thickest layer of this tiny treat is white cake. On top of the white cake, is a thin layer of pink strawberry and vanilla crumble. The most prominent flavors in this item are strawberry and vanilla, but the flavor of cannabis was also easily detected. The marijuana taste of this product was by no means overwhelming, but was definitely evident. Even if the product was out of the package, a person would be able to detect the scent and taste of cannabis.

The texture of this pre-packaged edible remained consistent with that of a fresh mini-cake, despite the unknown amount of time it spent in a package waiting to be sold. It was moist and flavorful. Although, the date this treat was made is not included on the package, there is an expiration date to prevent ingesting an expired item. There is also a batch number for tracking.

Infuzionz Edibles Package

The packaging of this product is clear, concise and simple, but is not designed to be child resistant. Therefore, under Colorado law, these items must be placed in a child-resistant container before the purchaser may exit the dispensary.

There is a lengthy warning on the back of the package which clearly states basic information such as, the item contains marijuana, “intoxicating effects may be delayed by two or more hours,” and that it is only intended for consumption by adults aged twenty-one years and older. The milligrams of marijuana contained in the item is listed in 3 places on the package making it very easy to identify how much THC is in each package.

The package indicated that this edible item was processed in a plant that also uses wheat, soy, nuts, dairy, gluten and eggs. The ingredients listed on the front of the package are as follows:

  • White cake mix
  • Flour
  • Butter
  • Gelatin mix
  • Pudding mix
  • Cream cheese
  • Powdered sugar
  • Whole eggs
  • Coconut oil
  • Heavy cream
  • Natural Flavoring
  • Hash oil

High School Student Accidentally Gives Teacher Pot Brownie

High School Student Accidentally Gives Teacher Pot Brownie

A student in Arnold, Maryland accidentally gave his teacher a weed brownie during school hours. The Broadneck High School student was sharing a marijuana infused brownie with his girlfriend while helping a teacher, when the teacher asked for a piece of the brownie. Afraid of revealing that the brownie was laced, the student gave the teacher a portion of the brownie without telling her.

By early afternoon the teacher knew something was off and made a trip to the school nurse. An ambulance took the teacher to a local hospital from which she was later released. Lieutenant T.J. Smith told a local news station,

“He kind of panicked and was scared to tell her that there was marijuana in the brownie.”

The student was later arrested on charges of marijuana distribution, second-degree assault, and reckless endangerment. Although authorities recognize that this was not an incident of ill intent, the illegality and negligence by the teen could mean some harsh penalties.

Broadneck High School

A letter to parents was released later that day, reading:

Hello parents,

I am writing you to let you know about an incident that occurred at school today. One of our teachers was given a brownie by a student and, soon thereafter, began to become disoriented. She was seen by the school nurse and told the nurse about eating the brownie. The nurse immediately summoned me and I sent an administrator to get the student so he could be questioned. The student admitted to giving the teacher the brownie and knowing it contained marijuana.

We are still investigating this matter and will provide more information if it is warranted. More immediately, however, I wanted you let you know of this matter so that if your child exhibits any unexplained symptoms, you would know about this issue and be able to relay it to any appropriate medical or other personnel.

Police are also continuing to investigate. Separate from their investigation, our school will take appropriate action in accordance with the Code of Student Conduct with regard to the student involved.

I urge you to talk with your child about this matter and encourage them to only consume food that they bring to school or that is purchased at our school.

Thank you, and have a good evening.

David Smith

Marijuana Edibles are Back in the Hot Seat in Colorado

Marijuana Edibles are Back in the Hot Seat in Colorado

Marijuana edibles are the hot topic of another meeting today in Colorado. Colorado health authorities intend to once and for all decide which marijuana edibles are too indistinguishable from every-day treats. It is reported that the aim is to establish a new state commission responsible for the “pre-market approval” of ingestible marijuana products before they can be sold in state-licensed dispensaries.

At this time, there are no regulations to limit the different forms in which ingestible cannabis may be produced. There are, however, regulations establishing retail packaging, potency, and serving size requirements. Back in October of this year, Jeff Lawrence of the Colorado Department of Public Health recommended a ban on most forms of edible marijuana products that would allow only tinctures and lozenges to be sold in Colorado. That recommendation was quickly rescinded for being unconstitutional, but now lawmakers are looking for a compromise.

The Marijuana Enforcement Division of Colorado has reportedly been hosting workgroups made up of health officials, law enforcement officers, people from the cannabis industry, and parents to discuss all aspects necessary for coming up with the best plan of action for regulating cannabis edibles. The final meeting will be held today, and the final decision will be made by legislators next year.

Colorado state representative of district eleven, Jeff Singer, told Huff Post Live that he does not support this particular proposal, but he does support marijuana edibles being marked in such a way that would facilitate easy identification of cannabis products by people of all ages. He wants to establish a way of marking the outside of every marijuana infused treat so that any person could quickly identify any product as containing cannabis just by looking at it, rather than limiting the permissible forms in which edibles may be sold. He feels that this would be the best compromise by maintaining the constitutional right of the people to ingest cannabis in whichever form they so choose, while also preventing accidental ingestion. He summarized his reasoning behind the importance of reaching a happy medium,

“If we regulate this industry too much it, you force it into a robust black market where criminals don’t care who they are giving the marijuana to. If we do not regulate it enough, the federal government will step in and squash the whole program, which is another way to open up the black market again.”

Producers of cannabis edibles are standing up against this possible policy change, however, because the voter-approved amendment 64 allows all forms of marijuana infused products, and consumers need to take responsibility for cannabis consumption just as they do alcohol consumption. Elyse Gordon, owner of Denver’s Better Baked cannabis edibles manufacturer explained,

“We’re governed to death, and people need to take responsibility for themselves. I don’t think anyone in the industry is looking to make products for children, and we resent this idea that people aren’t responsible for the products they bring into their home.”

All sides on this issue are feeling the growing pains of this newly budding industry. Just as, today, alcoholic beverages are easily identified by children, ingestible cannabis products will eventually be similarly identifiable because of these necessary steps. This industry is still in stages of infancy, and fewer gray areas will remain in years to come. During these times of establishing precedence, it will be very important that lawmakers and citizens alike remember to view regulative decisions without the reefer-madness colored glasses of the past so that constitutional rights are not squashed. Many people still view cannabis with a certain fear of the unknown, and that could fog the decision-making process for some. These times may prove to be difficult, but are necessary to legitimize the industry. Still the message must remain that cannabis is no more harmful than alcohol, and therefor should not face tighter regulations.
