Medical marijuana edibles review: Edi-Pure offers THC-twist on classic treats

Watermelon Tarts.jpg
Edi-Pure has infused classic treats and sweets with the soothing medicine of cannabis, allowing patients to escalate in relief with taste buds begging for more of their delicious and discrete morsels. This week, I dipped back into my childhood of nabbing a few candies from the local candy store with the Watermelon Tarts.

The treats look exactly like the sour drops found in candy stores, but with an adult-dose of 10 mg of THC per tart. The ten tarts in a package are little tidbits begging to be eaten. But be warned: They pack a punch, and one package could be stretched into three to five different highs.

My first time dosing with the Watermelon Tarts was with three treats. I half expected to find a magical golden ticket to some secret room of Willy Wonka's chocolate factory inside, although I also figured I could eat enough of them and get there on my own.

The sweet yet sour flavor is the same as the sour watermelon treats stolen from candy dispensers during younger years, paired with a light, earthy-ganja flavor that is barely noticeable in taste and works perfectly with the watermelon freshness and sour sting of the tart.

Even though the treats are over in a few bites, the cannabis makes a complete return not even an hour later, leaving the body in a solid state of relaxation, coziness and ease off just three of the little sugar globs. How they pack so much punch into such a little thing is baffling to me.

Edi-pure snacks range from $8-$14 depending on potency and the treat itself. Besides the tarts, there are also fruit jellies, crackers, peanut butter sandwich cookies and other treats suspiciously similar to goodies made by Hostess.

The Watermelon Tarts offer a great and effective high with the bonus of discrete convenience, allowing patients to medicate practically anywhere in just a few bites. The only problem is trying not to eat everything in the packaging after you've taken the first bite.

OK first off I dunno what all the complaints r about. There Candy's r the best. Also kids can get a hold of anything that there parents let them. If u don't treat ur medication like medication then others can an will get a hold of it that r innocent. There for lock ur meds up an keep them hidden from children etc. Also if ur not over 18 or 21 u won't be able to get these Candy's. The point of the Candy's r to be tasteless but u can taste an smell the meds in them. Also everyone's preferences is there own.enuff said these Candy's rock an if there worried about being sued by big named companies then they should come up with another way to make there yummy candys an other goodies. There's always positive solutions to everything.

These products are a disgrace and are tantamount to the old cigarette adds that reeled in minors. They need to be shut down and fined.

This company is being sued by Hostess & Sour Patch Kids for big $$$$$$$ The companies have a real problem with people or even kids accidently grabbing a Twinkie, Cupcake, or Sour Patch Kid that was sprayed by edipure and the person trying to sue Hostess.  Really STUPID edipure, your making the industry look really bad.

I tried these edibles and thought they were terrible. They smell like chemicals and have a very distinct green taste to them. Also, the packaging says "Must consume entire contents to ingest stated dose". This means you can't reliably manage the dose yourself, and I don't know about you guys, but 100mg is way too much for one sitting for me. The sales guy was in the day i got mine and he was going on and on about how they are "dr recommended" but what he failed to say was that HE was the dr who recommends them, and ALSO the sales department. The whole thing seems fishy.

Ok...so...no address?....no contact info?....

The website for this company is as vague as the review..I would post the URL but that's the responsibility of the Reviewer!The website states:

Laboratory Extracted THC’ Infused Edibles

Edi-Pure medicinal products are infused with THC derived by using lab grade reagents and methods to extract, then ‘prepare’ the THC so that it can be infused into a host of edible products with exact THC dosing and no resulting cannabis taste.

No Cannabis Taste

The products looks delicious..and sounds like it may be beneficial & appropriate for many. I too am concerned though about the entire production process...from Raw Material to packaging to distribution. The website "indicates" approximately (50) locations between Boulder & Denver where the Product "may" be located but is not specific about anything...again. The Review is well ahead of the company's PR!

Given the microscope the entire MMJ industry is under nationally..more questions will be asked that will require accountability around Business Practices & Operations as much as the potency, cost, and effect of the medication.

Something seems off here. Are they making all of these (highly processed) products themselves? If so, that is quite an impressive operation. It must have taken some time to dial all of those recipes in. Call me a skeptic, but what seems more likely to me is Edi-Pure buys these treats in bulk, medicates them, then repackages and sells them to unsuspecting or uncaring patients. Sound familiar to anyone else??? Maybe I'm totally off, but I just can't seem to see this as a viable long term plan. Maybe it isn't supposed to be. Sounds like a quick fix, lazy way out. And questionable business ethics at best.

100mg of what? THC, butter, oil. 100mg of bud, shake? Or just 100mg of marketing to make people believe that medical marijuana dosages are regulated? You can't use standardized measurements to measure something that's not standardized, that would be false advertising. Legitimate businesses get sued for that all the time but I guess when going to jail is a higher priority, things like bad business practice and deceiving customers take a back seat.

I don't know what these other people are bitching about.  Edi-Pure's peach jellies and their peanut butter sandwich cookies are awesome.  I've never had a problem with the flavors, nor have I been unable to use *gasp* THE POWER OF FRACTIONS (see annon's post, below) to adjust to a higher or lower dosage.

stan,I think annon was referring to the treats not being evenly dosed throughout. A likely product of the treats not actually being produced in-house. It's not incredibly difficult to make a homogeneous mixture when you are putting together ingredients from scratch and baking them in-house. It would, however, be difficult to inject a purchased Nutter Butter or Ding-Dong with bho or co2 oil evenly throughout. You have to consume the entire treat because you don't know exactly where the medicine is. And by the vast majority of standards, a legitimate 100mg of THC is a very, very, large dose.
