Since it was founded in 2009, Cheeba Chews has built a reputation for itself behind their assortment of chocolate taffy products. In recent years, they have introduced a couple of recipes with higher levels of cannabidiol (CBD).
Cheeba Chews Offers An Assortment Of Cannabis Taffy
Cheeba Chews got its start in Colorado, when the founder had more leftover trim than they knew what to do with. The company set out to develop a consistent, potent edible for medical marijuana patients – something they believed the industry was lacking at the time.
Accordingly, the original Cheeba Chews chocolate taffy was released in four Colorado locations. Amid an onslaught of positive reviews and a rapidly-developing cannabis industry, they expanded their reach throughout Colorado and into other medical marijuana states like California.
“[Pure CBD Cheeba Chews] are said to have a 25:1 ratio of CBD to THC.”
The Cheeba Chews brand has formulated a number of options for medical marijuana patients, including Sativa, Indica, and Hybrid varieties of their original quad-dose chocolate taffy chew. They also produce a line of Green Hornet Gummies.
After reviewing the original Cheeba Chews products, I was excited to give the Pure CBD variety a shot. They are said to have a 25:1 ratio of CBD to THC, so I didn’t expect to experience the sort of psychotropic effects that most people associate with cannabis.
Pure CBD Cheeba Chews: Gluten Free Cannabis Infused Taffy
It’s no secret that I love to see edible companies taking the care to make products for patients with special dietary restrictions. Sure enough, this is part of the reason that I was drawn to Cheeba Chews in the first place – they are gluten free and peanut free according to the company website.
I would still like to see Cheeba Chews pursue a healthier recipe that excludes corn syrup from the equation as well, but I’ve certainly seen much worse options for the health conscious medical marijuana patient.
- Sugar (5 grams)
- Corn Syrup
- Soybean Oil
- Cannabis Extract
The taste is best described as a mixture of Tootsie Rolls and cannabis, each bite containing a bitter tooth paste flavor/tinge that I found very difficult to get past.
How Will The Pure CBD Cheeba Chews Affect Me?
As far as effects are concerned, the Pure CBD Cheeba Chews do a decent job at keeping my anxiety at bay. That being said, the chews didn’t do much for pain management; inflammation in my lower body continued as normal.
“…its high price point on dispensary shelves makes Cheeba Chews more of a luxurious treat than a product you add to your daily regimen.”
High tolerance pain patients may want to search elsewhere for infused oils containing higher percentages/doses of cannabinoids, or consider increasing their CBD intake by consuming another Cheeba Chew.
Overall, I would consider the Pure CBD Cheeba Chews to be just an okay option for patients who seek anxiety relief without experiencing the psychotropic effects most associated with THC. The ingredients chosen could be much, much healthier. Also, its high price point on dispensary shelves makes Cheeba Chews more of a luxurious treat than a product you add to your daily regimen.
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 …
