Pros: Flavorful, affordable, potent
Cons: [see below]
The cannabis industry surprises me every twist and turn, and this cannabis infused ramen seasoning is no exception! Straight to the point: This product deserves all 5-leafs and if you have access, money, and interest you should give it a try.
I tested this product with some low-sodium soup; flavorless. I find this would be a great taste to see how the product tasted and its effect but with something a bit more nutritious. Though this product was created for and marketed towards ramen, the uses are not limited towards the 25¢ noodles!
There are no notes of rare spices, nor anything spicy so don't let your expectations get too high #weedpun. This is your standard vegetable broth ramen flavor; and thats it. No distinguishable taste or lingering after taste/burn of cannabis. Extracts have come a long way since I started with cannabis and this ramen packet is proof in the pudding—err, soup!
Each ramen packet contains the Washington state limit of 10mg, which I find as a perfect amount per dosage. I would classify the high as neither indica nor sativa leaning; neither up nor down. It was perfect during my run as it gave the mental clarity I desired, but didn't push into anxiety nor sedentary states for the entire 2 hour duration. I find the 10 mg amount to dance right up to the line of "too high" right before the effect wanes.
If I had to find a con to Northwest Cannabis Solutions' Left-Handed® Brand Cannabis Infused Ramen Seasoning (Instagram link here), it would be the individual serving packaging. The master container can be recycled, but the individual packets are landfill waste. I would recommend a biodegradable individual serving packaging or at the least something that can be recycled.
Pros: Quality, Taste, Company that gives back
Straight to the point— Green Labs LLC, Swifts honey infused weed is great. There is the THC version, shown above, and a CBD version as well (not shown/tested). Im not a fan of the packaging because these tiny packages are not recyclable. I will slightly overlook it because of the following:
The flavor is honey first and then a kick of cannabis—nothing else. The typical cannabis burn associated with edibles is (in my opinion) low compared to other products that I have tried. After tasting the product individually, I added this product to some mint tea, which was a delight.
The reason this product gets five leaf s is due to Green Labs' profit sharing. According to their website:
"A portion of Swifts Honey sales goes directly to the Washington State University Honey Bee and Pollinator Research Facility. Learn more about their important work and how you can help here."
I, too, agree that pollinators are in dire need of our support. I will always add a leaf to a business who puts an ethical choice over deepening their pockets. Therefore, when you put the too together it has my resounding five leaf approval. Hopefully, this is true and not a marketing ploy (I wanna see some receipts).

Pros: Silicone, very easy to clean, clever molds
Cons: Too flexible
If you're reading this and have not experienced what formed silica can do... let it change your life.
The stickiest of ickies... I'm talking maple syrup/tricome swirl sticky... didn't stick. A quick pop in the dishwasher handled the hard to reach areas. The 21+ indentations are clever but aren't necessary because who is that going to stop, really? #BeResponsible #DontRelyOnLabeling
My complaint is that there needs to be a removable structure that surrounds the silicone molds to make lifting from counter to fridge easier. With soupy based mixes that need to set in the fridge, it makes moving from counter to fridge like a circus act with sloppy results. I can hear it now "Why dont you just fill the molds in the fridge?" Answer: I don't have room because when I make a batch of edibles... I make a lot. #SharingIsCaring
Read my other Magical Butter Machine review here:
Pros: Affordable, decently built, easy to use, easy to clean
Cons: Confusing instructions, lack of features, no alarm shutoff
I have more positive things to say than negative so I will start with the negative. My main issues with this product are the instructions being vague and the lack of options/buttons on the thermometer.
Due to the current legal-status of cannabis in 2018, I fully get why they keep their instructions broad (where I work does the same thing). That being said, I do wish for the instructions to specifically state how to use the product with cannabis instead of supplementing with internet searching.
The thermometer worked great overall and I loved that it has magnets and a stand. I would have the thermometer input on the display be on the top instead of the side for balance reasons. The issue is when the oven breached the max setting. The alarm would beep non-stop. I put a band-aide over the alarm hole to muffle the sound hoping it would stop but when it didn't I eventually bumped up the setting so the alarm would go off.
There is no timer on the thermometer which I found silly in 2018. In a perfect world i see the thermometer use the alarm to notify of settings/time and a timer built into the product.
Overall, the cannabis got decarbed and the box cleaned easy for another go around.
All this being said, the silicone box is great and now i know the calibration of my oven!

Pros: Very portable, good flavor, accurate dosage, decent ingredients, great price-point
Cons: Non-recyclable items in packaging and product
I had major reservations going into trying this product. Lemon flavor plus cannabis sounded like a recipe for "Pine-sol". Luckily, this flavor is nothing like the previously mentioned floor cleaner. It's a sweet Meyer lemon flavor that has a slight cannabis burn. Would love to know if they used lemon haze as the source cannabis.
Recommended dosage is 6 squirts under the tongue. I personally stuck to 3 as a micro-dose and was happy with the effects. From the 3 spray dosage, I can confirm that this packs a punch so 6 should have you flying in outer space!
I am really happy with the Mirth Provisions - Drift breathe spray lost lemon creek flavor and recommend giving it a try.
