Extracted & Concentrated Review: Drip Drop Sour Gummy Worms
Colorful and tasty, Drip Drop gummies are like fresh lemonade on a dry, hot summer day.
Drip Drop sour gummy worms are almost the perfect snack to pack for a psychedelic stroll along the Danforth, or anywhere busy, really.
I popped one in my kitchen before heading up to the Danny, then another whilst waiting for a streetcar, and a third upon arrival at the Danforth. The sour flavor is thirst quenching with a slightly bitter aftertaste. Like fresh lemonade on a dry, hot day, these guys only left me wanting more.
It had been a while since I consumed THC-infused edibles, so it wasn’t long before everything and everyone around me became slightly more vivid and vibrant. The summer afternoon sky was extra blue, the peonies I stopped to smell were sweeter and even though my mode of transport didn’t make me wait long, I wouldn’t have cared if it did thanks to dreamy little Drip Drop worms.
Every wiggly worm in the pack of 13 contained roughly 40mg of THC. Other ingredients include corn syrup, beet sugar, citric acid (for shelf life), and food coloring (for the brightest blue, yellow, and red hues). While I could easily and discreetly store the cannabis-infused gummy worms in my purse for the road trip, I’m not convinced they were completely inconspicuous.
“How odd must I look, a woman in her mid-40s, standing here on a busy sidewalk eating from a beaming green and purple baggy featuring cartoon worms with red eyes?” I wondered, but also couldn’t help myself. Danforth Avenue was buzzing and my state of mind needed to match.
While the Government of Canada has strict guidelines for cannabis packaging, the Mississauga of the Credit Medicine Wheel dispensary can bypass these rules. As a sovereign Indigenous Cannabis Dispensary, the Medicine Wheel can sell cannabis strains not typically found at Canada’s legal dispensaries, including pre-roll singles (how user-friendly is that?) and edibles with a much higher THC content than what’s currently available in legal cannabis retail stores across the country. In Canada, the legal limit is 10mg for a package of THC edibles.
While I appreciated being able to access my cannabis edibles without cutting and tearing through copious amounts of child proof packaging, I would have preferred them to be contained with more foresight. Perhaps, as an adult and not a 12-year-old kid, I would have felt more comfortable and less awkward standing there on the busy avenue with something nondescript. After all, a significant advantage of cannabis edibles over flower is their ability to be consumed in public, without drawing unwanted attention from others.
