100mg Cherry CBD Edible Squib from Lunchbox Alchemy
With a modern, West Coast brand, Lunchbox Alchemy looks equally the part of a new entrant into the CBD space and a staple of dispensaries. Having produced THC edibles in states where marijuana is legal, their CBD edibles are a natural extension for those of us that aren't looking for a psychoactive component. That said, Lunchbox's lab reports definitely push the limit on legal amount of THC - right up to the .03% barrier. If you're looking for a little extra kick, look no further. For those of you looking for no THC, look elsewhere. Either way, we found the CBD edible Squibs from Lunchbox to be tasty and effective.
Taste (7.0 out of 10)
When you open the CBD edible Squib package, you can't help but notice the potent smell of cherry. It's not a bad smell, but it's definitely the fake kind - similar to a cherry gummy bear. So, what does it taste like? Cherry for sure, but also grass. The hemp taste is masked but definitely prevalent in this edible. Beyond the taste, the texture was a little weird for us. There is an extra gelatin-toughness to the blend here that we don't get from some other brands. We can't rate the taste quite as highly as the Green Roads Froggies or Infused Edibles line, but we don't think anyone will have a problem with the flavor of the Cherry CBD Squib.
Delivery (8.0 out of 10)
The delivery of the CBD Squib from Lunchbox is both familiar and odd at the same time. Familiar because, well, you eat the product. Odd because you may need to cut it up first. This Cherry CBD Squib is circular, with 100mg of total CBD, but scored around the edges like a pizza so you can dose out the number of 10mg, pie-shaped segments you'd like to consume. While it may be easier to not have to take the time to cut up your edible, we appreciate that Lunchbox Alchemy is being proactive about making people aware of dosing and not encouraging you to eat 100mg unless you know that's what you want.
Potency (9.0 out of 10)
As we said before, the CBD Squib from Lunchbox pushes the limit on THC content, sliding in just under the .03% mark. While you shouldn't feel any psychoactive effects at this level, the higher the THC content, typically, the more effect you're going to get from your CBD. In addition, this CBD edible is a full spectrum product, meaning it has other cannabinoids beyond THC and CBD. The lab reports from the Cherry CBD Squib we tried also had a healthy dose of CBD and CBC. While the higher THC content is not for everyone, we appreciate Lunchbox making this available for those that do.
Effect (8.5 out of 10)
This blend of CBD, THC, CBG and CBC did not disappoint. We took our standard testing dose and felt that the product delivered on the higher strength end that it seemed to be pushing. We found ourselves calm, relaxed and happy after having eaten the CBD Squib.
Price (6.0 out of 10)
While Lunchbox does not sell the product directly on their website and focuses on retail shops, you can find this product online from a number of vendors. On a quick glance, you should be able to pick up an edible Squib for around $15. At 100mg, that puts this product in the $.15 per milligram range, which is on the high end of CBD pricing. We feel like you're getting a high quality product, but you're definitely paying for it.
