The best of both compounds
We know there are health benefits to cannabidiol (CBD) and that THC can have a relaxing effect, as well as promote synergistic action between the compounds — so why not combine a small amount of each in an edible form?
That's what Dixie Elixirs has done with Synergy Mints. Each mint contains 5 milligrams of CBD and 5 milligrams of THC. The mints come in a box of 16, and are blister packaged. They are also scored across the middle, so you could cut one in half if you want to start with an even smaller dose. (Although on the first try, we found that the mint crumbled a bit when pushed out of its plastic blister bubble.)
As noted on the package, holding the mint under your tongue will lead to faster absorption.
The effect? Not a noticeable buzz at all, but a little sleepiness after about two hours. Whether you have a specific condition for which you're taking CBD, or just trying to integrate CBD into your diet for general health purposes, these are a little pricey. In California, a package of 16 mints costs $40 at the dispensary. That's $2.50 per mint — and a pretty steep cost per milligram.
According to Dixie's site: “We go far above and beyond the mandated batch testing and triple lab test every product we sell.”
