Compassion Edibles Offers A Variety Of Cannabis Infused Treats
Compassion Edibles was founded by Mickey Martin in 2000. They are based in the San Francisco Bay area and strive to produce the best-tasting, most effective infused edibles to cannabis patients in California.
“Compassion offers a variety of infused snacks, including Baklava, Granola, Chocolate Covered Pretzels and their signature line of Tainted Truffles.”
For 7 years, Compassion operated under the name Tainted Edibles – they changed the name in 2007. Prior to being raided by the FDA during the same year, the company offered a total of 52 different products in various sizes and strengths.
Today, Compassion offers 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 popular portion of their product line is the assortment of cookies. Compassion Edibles offers 5 cookies in total, including classics like Chocolate Chip, Oatmeal Raisin, and Coconut Almond Toffee Crunch.
Regular Strength Peanut Butter 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 Peanut Butter Classic Cookie is as follows:
- Vanilla Extract
- Peanut Butter
- Granulated Sugar
- Brown Sugar
- Baking Soda
- Cannabis Butter (Primarily Sour Diesel and OG Kush)
Also provided on the Peanut Butter Classic 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 Peanut Butter Classic Cookie Affect Me?
After reviewing a few of Compassion Edibles’ cookies, I had a pretty good idea of what to expect from the peanut butter variety as far as dosing is concerned. What I was unsure about was how it would taste.
Peanut butter cookies are extremely hit-or-miss for me – I either love them or I hate them. Lucky for me, Compassion’s Peanut Butter Classic Cookie was right in my wheelhouse.
“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 achieve their desired dose.”
Much like their Oatmeal Raisin Cookie, Compassion Edibles’ Peanut Butter Classic Cookie was soft and fluffy like every good cookie should be.
The peanut butter taste was fantastic – obvious, but not overpowering. And there was no noticeable cannabis flavor, which I always consider to be the sign of a quality infused edible.
I found the regular strength Peanut Butter 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 achieve their desired dose.
