EDIBLE REVIEW: Kiva Mints Make It Easy to Micro-dose
Strong aroma and a clean aftertaste
Many things in this world are perfectly healthy if consumed in moderation, but they become unhealthy and even dangerous when consumed in excess. This holds true for cannabis consumption in the same way that it holds true for the consumption of wine and beer, fatty foods or Zach Galifianakis. A little bit at a time won't hurt you, but a lot all the time probably will.
For anyone who prefers to live their life under the micro-dose, one of my favorite low-dose cannabis edibles on the market is the line of Petra Mints by Kiva Confections. Each diamond-shaped mint contains only 2.5 mg of THC, and the obsessive lab testing performed by Kiva ensures a consistent potency. This makes it very easy to control your high, without any fear of an unpleasant surprise.
The Petra Mints are the first non-chocolate confection produced by Kiva, which also makes various chocolate bars and chocolate-covered coffee beans. I like the eucalyptus, which includes green tea matcha in addition to eucalyptus oil, but they also come in Moroccan Mint flavor.
These greenish mints emit a strong earthy and herbal aroma, and while I find the intense eucalyptus, tea and mint flavors refreshing, with a surprisingly clean aftertaste, they are not for everyone. However, the gentle mind fog and mild buzz that comes after popping a couple of these mints are perfect for taking the edge off, like having a glass of wine (or two, if you prefer) at the end of a long day.<div class="star-rating"> Content: 105 mg THC (2.5 mg per mint) </div> <div class="star-rating"> Price: $24 (42 mints) </div> <div class="star-rating"> Uses: Freshening your breath and refreshing your psyche. </div> <div class="star-rating"> Pros: A low-dose way to take the edge off. </div> <div class="star-rating"> Cons: The intense flavor is not for everyone. </div>
