Compassion Edibles’ Snickerdoodle Classic Cookie is a sugar cookie rolled in cinnamon and sugar. It is about the size of your average DVD and contains 100 mg of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC).
Compassion Edibles: Tainted Truffles, Cookies, and More
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. There are rumors of expansion in the company’s near future too.
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 Snickerdoodle 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 entire list of ingredients for the Snickerdoodle Classic Cookie is as follows:
- Granulated Sugar
- Baking Soda
- Cream of Tarter
- Cannabis Butter (Primarily Sour Diesel and OG Kush)
Also provided on the Snickerdoodle 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 (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 Snickerdoodle Classic Cookie Affect Me?
After reviewing Compassion Edibles’ Snickerdoodle Classic Cookie, I had a pretty good idea of what to expect from the Snickerdoodle as far as dosing is concerned.
Snickerdoodle cookies were a holiday staple growing up in my family, so I was excited to see how Compassion’s rendition would compare to the taste I fell in love with as a child.
“Compassion Edibles’ Snickerdoodle Classic Cookie is incredibly soft and fluffy.”
I would give the edge to my grandmother’s cookies based on taste alone, but the fact that Compassion’s recipe contains 100 mg of THC helps level the playing field.
Much like their Oatmeal Raisin Cookie, Compassion Edibles’ Snickerdoodle Classic Cookie is incredibly soft and fluffy. It was precisely the same texture that got me hooked on Snickerdoodles in the first place.
I found the regular strength Snickerdoodle 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.
