Glowing review of MAC 1 found online...
I have to start off by saying Broken Coast has been my favorite "Legal" cannabis brand / flower on the market, until tonight. I'll still be buying Broken Coast because i travel a lot & I've never seen this other brand in any of the dispensaries across Canada until today.
I've been smoking & selling cannabis since roughly 13, and I've been in hundreds of dispensaries across the world legal & illegal, not just Canada, and this bud is some of the best I've ever had. love it!
I decided to do a little shopping at a few Cannabis dispensaries in Calgary to see what edibles were available, here's some pictures with a few comments & thoughts.
There were no beverages available at any of the dispensaries, except the tea bags seen in the pictures next to the brownish Carmel packaging. "Vanilla Rooibos Tea." 10mg CBD per tea bag& 0.09mg THC.
The THC candies were sold out at 2 of the dispensaries I went to, but I found a 3rd location carrying some & bought the last ones available basically, according to their system they only had 7 left of everything they received from the first shipment, which was literally this week.
Some of the candies don't even indicate weather it's Indica or Sativa, which is kinda stupid & unprofessional, IMO.
There's many daily cannabis users like myself who only consume Indica & there's part time users who are similar.
My friend who I gave the gummies to said she felt the effects within 10 minutes, and she felt awesome, very chill body high according to her.. She mentioned the same thing as me though, why don't they indicate if it's Sativa or Indica, because like me she only consumes Indica usually. It's also worth noting that she doesn't ever smoke cannabis anymore, she only consumes it daily via oil that's available at dispensaries. So since cannabis has been legal she's a prime example of the legal cannabis companies converting black market users into customers, and not even through flower!
Interestingly enough, there's been many group members here who've suggested nobody wants a beverage with 5mg of thc & they only want something with 100mg of thc, but here we have a "daily" cannabis user who felt the effects of a candy with 1mg of thc & 10mg of cbd! Much less of a dosage than a 5mg beverages of thc.
I think it's premature for investors to assume what cannabis trends will take off until they're widely available & better products come to market via CPG companies etc.
The candies I'm referencing in the above paragraphs are made by Dosecann, I think that's owned by Auxly but I'm not sure, someone here can correct me if mistaken. There's two candies in a package & each contain 1mg of THC & 5mg of CBD.
Noticeably there's not very much available for edibles on the list from Newleaf, there's not even Candies.
I didn't get a picture of the other dispensaries list but they had more available.
Oh yeah, and the picture of the Bud is by Citizen Stash, I finally found a "Legal" cannabis brand better than Broken Coast! I didn't think that was going to ever happen, but my $$$ will now be going elsewhere when this brand is available, 25.6% thc & the bud is cheaper than Broken Coast too. Aphria has some competition in the premium flower space now. Also worth noting, I bought San Rafel pink kush as well because the bud is always decent & well priced for the thc content etc.
Until next time, I have due diligence to conduct with all these products lol!
