Those Useful Little THC Pills

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!

About Old Hippie

http://gplus.to/OldHippie Old Hippie is a father of two boys and thankfully living in California where all this kind of thing is legal. He started smoking marijuana in 1967 in high school, experimented with mind-expanding drugs of all kinds, and then straightened out 15 or so years later to become an airplane pilot. After being diagnosed with depression in 2000, he lost his job and most of the following decade to prescription medications (such as antidepressants) which sapped his energy and will. Finally, a chance conversation with a friend led to a doctor’s recommendation for medical marijuana (MMJ). This changed his entire life, health, and outlook for the better. BeyondChronic.com is his continuing story. It’s also his way to provide experienced advice on using medical marijuana effectively and responsibly, as well as advocacy, activism, and support for others. Old Hippie teaches about safe use of cannabis edibles, Canna Caps, vaporizers, dosing, and even microdosing.
