Sofa King Good Bakery Overview:
Okay, I have to admit, I’m not the biggest fan of dried pretzels unless they’re maybe covered in chocolate, simply because the majority that I’ve had tend to be pretty dry and bland. But knowing that many infused edibles out there are often sweet desserts or candies, I was excited to try out a medicated savoury treat for a change, made by the talented people at the Sofa King Good Bakery in Toronto.
Gold Sponsors of the 2017 Karma Cup, Sofa King Good Bakery sell all kinds of amazing edibles, and I was lucky enough to get to review their Cosmic Pretzels infused with 100 mg of THC distillate and 35 mg of CBD isolate.
Sofa King Good Bakery Pricing & Selection:
I had the opportunity to meet with the Sofa King Good Bakery team at the Mercado Libre in Kensington Market over the weekend and got to see their very impressive booth laid out with all of their products, including their infused cereal bars and even their homemade wild-harvested fruit jams.
The pretzels I got to take home were neatly packaged in plastic disposable Tupperware, which was sealed with appropriate warning labels and professional branding, as well as accurate dosage and ingredient information. I’m quite a seasoned smoker and my cannabis tolerance is pretty high, so I decided to try out their pretzels on an empty stomach during a time when I wasn’t smoking.
Cosmic Pretzels Smell, Texture, Taste:
The first thing I instantly noticed is that the pretzels had a tasty, buttery flavour and texture to them, most probably from the coconut oil they use with their distillate. These pretzels tasted much better than the typical ones I’m used to, and once I started munching on one or two, I couldn’t help but eat through almost half the package in one sitting!
Given the fact that distillate is being used rather than cannabutter, there is no cannabis flavour to interfere with the salty, buttery (and addictive!) taste of these pretzels.
Unique to Sofa King Good Bakery:
Often, I find cannabis edibles infused with concentrates like oils, shatter or distillates can sometimes leave me with a slight sore throat from oily residue. But despite having many pretzels, I didn’t notice any of this. They not only tasted great, but they contained some of my favourite compounds too. That’s already a win in my book!
What I also like about Sofa King Good Bakery edibles is that they’re not only infusing THC distillate, but also CBD into their goodies too, giving their products many physical, medicinal benefits as well as psychoactive effects.
Cosmic Pretzels Effects:
After around 45 minutes from finishing the pretzels, I could feel my legs relax and my brain started to become fuzzy. Within the hour and 30 minute mark, effects began to peak and my mood had significantly improved. I was definitely ‘medicated’ and in a hazy bliss for quite some time after, with effects wearing off after a couple hours. And that’s saying something for someone with my tolerance, so I can only imagine how strong these would be for the occasional cannabis user!
What can I say? I am fortunate to be at a time and place where cannabis users are feeling more confident to come out and show the world what cannabis can do, with new cannabis products and solutions being discovered and entering the market every day. I’m so pleased to say that despite my broad experience with cannabis and edibles, I can now add these awesome cannabis infused pretzels to the list! Just another perfect example of how innovative snacks with the benefits of cannabis have become.
