Compassion Edibles Makes A Variety Of Cannabis Infused Cookies
Based in the San Francisco Bay area, Compassion Edibles was founded by Mickey Martin in 2000. They strive to produce the best-tasting, most effective infused edibles to cannabis patients in California, and there are talks of the company expanding into other markets.
For 7 years, Compassion operated under the name Tainted Edibles – they changed the name in 2007.
“Compassion Edibles offers 5 cookies in total, including classics like Peanut Butter, Oatmeal Raisin, and Coconut Almond Toffee Crunch.”
Before being raided by the FDA during the same year, the company offered a total of 52 different products in various sizes and strengths.
Compassion decided to regroup in 2013 with a redesigned product line. They offer a variety of infused snacks, including Baklava, Granola, Chocolate Covered Pretzels and their signature line of Tainted Truffles (Cookie Mint, French Chocolate, Bacon Chocolate, etc.).
Another large portion of their product line is the assortment of cookies. Compassion Edibles offers 5 cookies in total, including classics like Peanut Butter, Oatmeal Raisin, and Coconut Almond Toffee Crunch.
Regular Strength Chocolate Chip Classic Cookie
One of the things I like most about Compassion Edibles is the detailed information they provide on each individual package. The display includes a prominent warning label that reads, “CONTAINS CANNABIS”, in addition to another warning that the product contains peanut allergens.
Furthermore, I was happy to see that Compassion Edibles clearly dictates which strains of cannabis they use in each recipe. The list of ingredients for the Chocolate Chip Classic Cookie is as follows:
- Granulated Sugar
- Brown Sugar
- Chocolate Chips (Unsweetened Chocolate, Sugar, Cocoa Butter, Soy Lecithin, Vanilla)
- Baking Soda
- Cannabis Butter (Primarily Sour Diesel and OG Kush)
Also provided on the Chocolate Chip Cookie’s labeling is a note that estimates how much dried cannabis went into each package (≈8.3 grams), born on/best by dates, and a lot number in order to allow Compassion to track each batch they produce. They recently added bar codes to their packaging as well (not pictured).
The only other piece of information I would personally like to see on Compassion Edible’s labeling is a more detailed breakdown of the cannabinoid profile. While it clearly provides the tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) content (100 mg), I would love to know how much cannabidiol (CBD), cannabinol (CBN), etc. is contained in each package.
How Might The Chocolate Chip Classic Cookie Affect Me?
After reviewing Compassion Edibles’ Oatmeal Raisin and Snickerdoodle Classic Cookies, I had a pretty good idea of what to expect from the Chocolate Chip variety as far as dosing is concerned.
“I found the regular strength Chocolate Chip Cookie (100 mg of THC) to be best reserved for the late afternoon/early evening.”
I’m sure we’ve all come across plenty of Chocolate Chip cookies in our lifetime. That being said, I was intrigued to see what Compassion’s rendition would be like.
Much like their Oatmeal Raisin Cookie, Compassion Edibles’ Chocolate Chip Classic Cookie is soft and fluffy. I found the taste to be a bit bland, for lack of a better term – I personally wanted to see more of an obvious chocolate influence from the cookie. That being said, it was absolutely delicious when dipped in chocolate milk.
I found the regular strength Chocolate Chip Cookie (100 mg of THC) to be best reserved for the late afternoon/early evening – it offered noticeable relief from pent-up stress, anxiety, and minor body aches in as little as 30 minutes. Patients with a lower tolerance for edibles may want to ration out the cookie over the course of a day (or more) in order to acheive their desired dose.
