What are Cannadips?
Cannadips are pretty much exactly what they sound like: cannabis-infused dip pouches, meant to fit between your cheek and gums like tobacco dip; However, these pouches are tobacco-free and spitless (meaning, no sketchy dip bottles required).
How do Cannadips work?
Each dip pouch quickly delivers 10 mg of THC (or CBD) into your system via your mouth’s mucous membranes. And we do mean quickly – we felt effects as soon as 10 minutes after dipping a pouch. The instructions say to keep the pouch in your mouth up to 2 hours, and that really is a pouch’s limit – by then the flavor is generally gone.
The pouches’ proclivity to tear if you maneuver them too much is probably the only negative to this product. Even then, it’s one we can live with, as there is so much to love about these wonderful little edibles. They’re low sugar, with no synthetic flavorings. They’re discreet (the packaging tin is not actually made of tin, so it’ll pass through a metal detector), fast-acting and tasty. So tasty, in fact, that we tried all three flavors and four formulations.
Cannadips are available in Citrus, Mint and American flavors. Each tin comes with 15 pouches infused with 10 mg of THC, and Mint is also available in a CBD formulation.
Citrus Cannadips (THC)
We are in love with the Citrus formulation. The moment you place a pouch in your mouth you’ll taste a wave of sweet lemon citrus, enough to make your cheeks pucker with delight. There’s just absolutely amazing flavor to these; even more than an hour after dipping, that fruitiness still came through. Our advice? Skip the citrus-infused microbrews and dip Citrus Cannadips instead. Hell, skip everything else and dip Citrus Cannadips instead.
(And you got all the extra-credit questions, even the one that got cut off by the copy machine.)
Mint Cannadips (THC/CBD)
Want to get a little buzz while also making your breath minty fresh? Dip a Mint THC pouch. This formulation is intense – at times the mint was so minty it stung – and will give you the kick in the teeth you need to get up and moving in the morning. Mint also paired quite well with our coffee.
The CBD formulation comes in the same mint flavor, so you’ll still get that minty kick to the face, just none of the buzz. This one is great for weekday mornings – there’s just enough CBD to ease that commute anxiety and put you in a calm state of mind for work.
American Cannadips (THC)
If you like cinnamon and chicory, American flavor is for you. American was our least favorite of the three flavors (please stop booing), but they’re a nice, strong mix of spices – a little like Red Hots, a little like that rich, woody coffee substitute. We hear that chicory coffee is a great way to reduce your caffeine intake, but who wants to do that, really?
Overall Cannadips Grade: A
Cannadips are currently Cannabis and Caffeine’s favorite edible of 2018. Each pouch tucks neatly and discreetly in your mouth. There’s nothing to eat and nothing to spit. The pouches mimic the look of tobacco dip, pack a ton of flavor and are perfect for getting (or keeping) a buzz at any time of day.
