A few months ago I visited All Natural dispensary in Sacramento and picked up some Canna Caps, which have the strain Rhino Wreck in them, extracted into coconut oil. These capsules (which I reviewed in August) are very strong and last quite a long time, and though they came in useful for a long and stressful occasion (my son’s wedding), they’re way too powerful for regular use.
However, when I picked up the Canna Caps, one of the friendly budtenders at All Natural offered me one of their THC pills to try, because they wanted to know how they compared to the Canna Caps. These pills are essentially filled with powdered hash.
First of all, a brief disclaimer. After the rather distressing incident that happened at the Cannabis Expo, I decided not to take the entire thing because I was concerned for my health if I had too much again. So I poured half of the capsule out and into a chimichanga I had just cooked in the microwave, figuring that the fat in the hot cheese would be a perfect extraction medium.
And it was. It took about 45 minutes to start working in earnest, and as usual with edibles, it lasted quite a while (about 4 hours all together). It was very comfortable and easy to control, and I estimate that even the full pill would have not been too strong to handle (I weigh 200 pounds, your highage may vary).
But perhaps the greatest thing about these THC pills is their versatility. Unlike the Canna Caps, which are filled with oil, the powdered hash can easily be used in other ways. As I found, you can sprinkle it on food, but you could also smoke or vaporize it. And the ability to adjust the dosage by taking some out is also very useful. So I give them 5 out of 5 stars. Or cannabis leaves. Or whatever!
