About Betty’s Eddies Ache Away Eddies
I picked these up while traveling through Massachusetts because I’m always on the lookout for low-dose edibles. These eddies come in a few different strengths depending on which state you’re in; I picked up a bag of the 5 mg THC which also has 20 mg CBD and 5 mg CBC. (They also come in 20 mg THC and 50mg THC doses.)
These “ache away” edibles rely on the anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving properties of THC and CBD. They’re also formulated with a few health-supporting adaptogens that are known to reduce inflammation including turmeric, piperine (an alkaloid from black pepper that increases the bioavailability of turmeric), and vitamin E.
The first thing I noticed with these edibles was the texture. Each piece is individually wrapped and reminds me of salt water taffy but with a sticky-soft taffy texture (your fillings are safe.) The flavor is driven by the freeze-dried cherries, but they also include a smaller amount of freeze-dried strawberries.
I often notice an aftertaste of cannabis in edibles and these are no different, but it wasn’t evenly distributed from piece to piece – some pieces were more cherry-driven while others were heavier on the cannabis. I don’t mind it as I like the taste of cannabis, but I got some feedback from others I shared these with that the weed taste was a bit much.
The cannabinoid content comes from full-spectrum-infused coconut water as well as CBD and CBC isolates. I always prefer a full-spectrum product to encourage the entourage effect, but isolates can be useful to include higher amounts of minor cannabinoids.
What was the high like? For me, it was mild. 5 mg of edible THC isn’t a high dose, especially when paired with 20 mg of CBD. (Everyone’s endocannabinoid system is unique and some people are more sensitive to THC or to specific THC: CBD ratios.) It was a gentle lift to my entire system, rather than an intense head or body high. I can eat one of these and do a day’s work or pop on a movie. I would buy from Betty’s Eddies again, but I would try one of their other formulations since I don’t (currently) have many aches and pains.
These edibles are perfect for people who enjoy a low-dose product or are looking for a product tailored to pain relief. They taste a little like cannabis, but they are edibles after all. They work fairly quickly and are easy to get down.
Betty’s Eddies are available in 5 states: Massachusetts, Delaware, Maine, and Maryland, as well as in Puerto Rico.
