Branching out from its roots (producing medicated chocolate taffy), Cheeba Chews has created its own line of medicated gummies. Infused with 275 milligrams of finished cannabis extract, the Green Hornet gummies come in three varieties with significantly different effects.
Cheeba Chews Offers Their Take On Medicated Gummies
Cheeba Chews got its start in 2009, and quickly grabbed the interest of patients with their flagship chocolate taffy product. Using this momentum, the company has expanded it’s reach to include dispensary locations throughout Colorado, followed by more medical marijuana states like California.
“Cheeba Chews’ Green Hornet gummies comes in a Sativa, Indica, and Hybrid version.”
Without a doubt, Cheeba Chews is best known for their offering of infused chocolate taffy. Still, the company’s product line also includes caramel taffy, mint chocolate taffy, and medicated gummies.
As mentioned, Cheeba Chews’ Green Hornet gummies comes in a Sativa, Indica, and Hybrid version. Our team has noticed that the effects differ greatly between each one, but more on that later.
Green Hornet: A Medicated Gummy With Noticeable Effects
Although I love to see infused edible options tailored to those with special dietary needs (gluten-free, vegan, etc.), I was excited for an opportunity to review the Green Hornet gummies. I have been a sucker for gummies for as long as I can remember, and adding cannabis to the equation is almost sure to win me over.
Of course, I would still like to see Cheeba Chews pursue a healthier recipe that excludes corn syrup from the equation… I wouldn’t be disappointed to see the sorbitol be cut out of the recipe either, but maybe that’s just me and my preference for natural sweeteners.
According to the Cheeba Chews website, each Green Hornet gummy contains the following ingredients:
- Corn Syrup
- Grape Juice
- Malic Acid
- Mineral Oil
- Carnuba Wax
- Cannabis Extract
Also listed on their website is lab-testing data for each Cheeba Chews product. Each quad-dose Green Hornet is made from 275 milligrams of finished cannabis extract and each gummy contains 70 milligrams of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), it says.
How Will Green Hornet Gummies Affect Me?
As far as taste is concerned, the Green Hornet product line is best described as a classic gummy bear with a slight aftertaste of cannabis tincture. While the cannabis influence is obvious, it’s far from empowering. The aftertaste does tend to linger for quite a while though.
“The Sativa gummy delivered a burst of uplifting energy that reminded me of the effect I experience when medicating with the Green Crack strain. On the other hand, the Indica gummy offered a deep body melt, inducing a serious bout with couch-lock. “
According their labels, each Green Hornet gummy is intended to be 4 servings. Inside the package is one gummy divided down the middle for easier dosing.
So, the math tells us that each half contains around 35 milligrams of THC. Patients who are unsure of what to expect may want to begin with just one quarter of the gummy (1 serving).
As we know, no two patients are the same. Each individual uses medical marijuana for a different reason, which is exactly why Cheeba Chews offers three different varieties of the Green Hornet gummies. Our team had a chance to review the Indica and Sativa versions, and we noticed an obvious difference.
Just like one would expect, the Sativa gummy delivered a burst of uplifting energy that reminded me of the effect I experience when medicating with the Green Crack strain. On the other hand, the Indica gummy offered a deep body melt, inducing a serious bout with couch-lock.
I began to feel the effects from the Green Hornet gummies within 20-30 minutes, and they were most noticeable around about an hour after ingestion. Of course that timetable will vary for each patient, but expect the Green Hornet gummies to provide a good burst of cannabinoids to your system.
Cheeba Chews got its start in the year 2009, as a patient/caregiver had trim from 12 plants and nothing to do with it. He wanted to create a consistent, potent edible for Colorado patients. In …
