VIP Edibles Overview:
VIP Edibles is an Ontario based cannabis edible processing company with a variety of high quality, lab tested products available throughout Canada. These edibles provide potent effects that are noticeable very quickly.
Accessing VIP Edibles:
VIP Edibles products are available on many M.O.M (Mail Order Marijuana) websites and can be found at popup markets such as the Green Market. Unfortunately for patients, due to the City of Toronto’s views on edible cannabis products, local dispensaries are reluctant to sell any edible products in their stores.
VIP Edibles Pricing and Selection:
VIP Edibles are the creators of products such as Bless medicated chocolate syrup, as well as the Canadrank Tincture. Their products usually sell for about $40-$45 on average, and Canadrank contains approximately 600mg of THC as indicated on their label. Canadrank is made with BHO making it a very potent tincture which can be easily mixed with any type of flavoured beverage you may enjoy.
Unique To VIP Edibles:
VIP edibles has made a name for themselves by producing products that are different from your typical brownie, cookie or candy. They are the producers of the first medicated chocolate syrup available in Canada, which is also the product I best know them for.
Canadrank Smell, Looks and Taste:
At the first glance Canadrank can easily remind you of a bottle of cough syrup, a dark coloured plastic container with dosage markings and a childproof cap. After opening the tincture, you are greeted by purple syrup that has the scent of grape flavouring but a noticeable cannabis smell, that almost burns your nostrils. The taste of the tincture is much of the same when tasted by itself. A mild grape flavour with a strong cannabis taste were noticeable, which surprised me considering the tincture was made with BHO not flower or kief. The taste changed drastically when mixed with a soda pop like Grape Crush and Sprite, though a milder cannabis taste was still present in the mix. The texture is similar to most drinkable syrups and is easily poured from the container, and mixes well with cold drinks.
Being a medical patient and usually having a high tolerance to edibles I started with a 150mg dose of the tincture, which was about one quarter of the bottle. At about 2:00pm I took the 150mg dose of the Canadrank, which was then mixed with a 350ml can of Sprite. At about 2:30pm I could feel the tinctures effects already beginning to creep their way in, starting behind my eyes and working its way throughout the rest of my body. By 2:45 the effects from the tincture had fully set in. The effects were very indica in nature, leaving me with a strong feeling of relaxation, decreased anxiety and a stimulated appetite, leaving me couch locked, for most of the duration of the effects. These effects were very heavy in nature so I would recommend a much smaller dose for new consumers with little experience using edibles, as well as those who only eat edibles on occasion. The effects of the tincture started to wear off relatively quickly and only a couple hours later had worn off, leaving me very tired and drowsy. I recommend only using this product in the evening or night, as the tincture is very potent and sedative.
