Compassion Edibles’ take on the classic oatmeal raisin cookie holds true to the company’s reputation for producing quality infused edibles. It is about the size of your average DVD and contains 100 mg of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC).
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 under the name Tainted Edibles. The company strives 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.
Compassion Edibles has been around for over a decade – the company operated under the name Tainted Edibles before changing the name in 2007.
“Compassion Edibles offers 5 cookies in total, including classics like Chocolate Chip, Peanut Butter, and Oatmeal Raisin.”
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 Chocolate Chip, Peanut Butter, and Oatmeal Raisin.
Regular Strength Oatmeal Raisin 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 alergens.
Furthermore, I was happy to see that Compassion Edibles clearly dictates which strains of cannabis they use in each recipe. The entire list of ingredients for the Oatmeal Raisin Classic Cookie is as follows:
- Brown Sugar
- Granulated Sugar
- Rolled Oats
- Baking Soda
- Cannabis Butter (Primarily Sour Diesel and OG Kush)
Also provided on the Oatmeal Raisin 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. The company recently added bar codes to their packaging as well, and we’ll be looking to update this review with pictures that reflect this change as soon as possible.
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 Oatmeal Raisin Classic Cookie Affect Me?
Having reviewed a few different Compassion Edibles creations, I had a pretty good idea of what I was getting myself into with the Oatmeal Raisin Cookie as far as dosage is concerned.
The entire cookie contains about 12 mg less THC than just 1 Super Strength Tainted Truffle, which I’ve found to be ideal towards the end of the day to help relieve bodily aches and pains.
“I found the regular strength Oatmeal Raisin Cookie (100 mg of THC) to be best reserved for the late afternoon/early evening.”
The texture of the Oatmeal Raisin Classic Cookie was nearly perfect – the center was soft and gooey like every good cookie should be. Furthermore, I had a hard time detecting any sort of notable cannabis taste; the taste of oats and raisins reigned supreme in this case.
I found the regular strength Oatmeal Raisin 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. Of course, patients with a lower tolerance for edibles can always ration out the cookie in order to achieve a smaller dose during the day.
