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 Granola Bar with Peach, Cherry and Pistachio. 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.
This medicated treat is approximately 2 inches by 2 inches and 64 ounces of tasty oat-granola, dried fruit and pistachios on top of a layer of chocolate. The flavors of dried fruit and chocolate with a subtle hints of coconut were the most prominent, and this is a great example of an edible that is not too sweet. The flavor of cannabis, though evident, was nowhere near overwhelming. Even if this 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, homemade granola bar, despite the unknown amount of time it spent in a package waiting to be sold. This is not a crispy granola bar, but rather a softer texture that allows for easy chewing. 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.
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 with the item.
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.

- Dried cranberries
- Dried cherries
