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.
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.
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.

- White cake mix
