The highly anticipated Dosies claim ‘A Tiny Miracle in Every Mint’.
The stoned foodies of San Francisco sparked excitement last year at the announcement that one of San Francisco’s hottest chefs, Dennis Lee of Korean hotspots Namu Gajic and Namu Stonepot, would lend his talents to the creation of a new edibles line from the Oakland cannabis manufacturer Sublime. Early media reports teased that their first collaboration would be an infused gourmet coin.
But Chef Lee didn’t stop at the project and turned his attention back to the restaurants. (Namu Gaji is in the midst of an earthquake renovation, after all.)
Nevertheless, those infused high-end cannabis mints have arrived in the form of: Doses, a citrus-orange microdose of mint candy. Sublime remained devoted scientists and a confectioner from Ferrara Pan. use to make mints whose mini-dose formulation is remarkably effective, but whose candy flavor proves to be a mixed bag.
You probably know Sublime (formerly Sublime concentrates) for their popular vape cartridges and kief-coated pre-rolls called fuzzies. Doses are Sublime’s first edible offering, but the company is well-funded enough that more cannabis courses may follow.
On the first pop, these citrus-orange mints burst with a sweet flavor that’s a notch fuller than orange Tic-Tacs. But a medicinal aftertaste sets in and lasts long after your taste buds have had their first sugar spike. Notably, it’s not a cannabis-tinged aftertaste; it’s more chalky. But that particular issue here is ironic, because the initial involvement of local culinary talent made people so excited about Sublime edibles.
Despite this, we must acknowledge that Dosie’s 2 milligrams per coin THC infusions are very expertly formulated. You won’t pay $25 (before state and local taxes) for a simple packet of candy tokens, and the small doses of each coin hit surprisingly high notes.
Dosies’ child-resistant packaging is quite manageable, even if you’ve had a few. Their highly responsible exterior design will not attract the attention of children or helicopter parents nearby.
Although Sublime has been making mint (literally) for over a year now, the flavor didn’t live up to the hype. But a pack of Dosies is still an inviting stash for non-smokers to take with them and share at gatherings. And unlike chocolate edibles, mints don’t melt.
Potency: Beautifully manageable with 2 milligrams of THC per mint and 50 mints packed in each packet. It is incredibly easy for anyone to monitor their dosage.
Odor: These discreetly packaged treats have no scent.
Taste: Five or so seconds of an exciting sweet orange taste, quickly followed by a longer lasting medicinal aftertaste that is less than excellent.
Appearance: Doses of mints are pretty cute, like perfectly colored little orange Easter eggs.
Medical Application: Expect a pick-me-up in your step, with an uplifting high and social buzz that makes Dosies suitable for festivals and events.
Effect: These mini mints are an impressive looking treat that will be a hit to share with friends, with easily controlled microdosing that will leave even the lightweights seriously impressed.
