Cheeba Chews Offer A Timeless And Tasty High
These edibles are a blast from the past, and they offer a high that truly lasts.
IN REVIEW: Each of these chewy taffies packs in 10mg of THC and Tootsie-Roll-like taste and texture. Expect a high that pairs well with most things. Whether you want to wake up and workout, walk through nature, or sit on the couch, these amiable effects will be by your side. The high has real staying power, so be sure you’re okay with being stoned from start to finish in whatever it is you choose to do.
This take on the venerable chocolate taffy pulled at my heartstrings. Cheeba Chews’ products harken back to simpler times. Like spending your summers at the shore, where you and the local street urchins would gather in front of Old Man Witherspoon’s Sweet Shoppe and stare wide-eyed as the saltwater taffy machine would pull apart large clumps of sugary goodness. If you were lucky, and Old Man Witherspoon was in a good mood—he’d throw you a couple pieces just so you’d stop fogging up his storefront window with your breath. Then you and your ragtag crew of ne’er-do-wells would ride your penny-farthing bicycles to the local velodrome and feast on your latest score.
“After an hour, I was feeling every bit of this medicated taffy, and it washed over me with childlike wonder.”
Well, it isn’t 1937 anymore, and I’m here to report that your childhood taffies have been supercharged for the modern age. While that fictitious candy store pulled from the pages of Norman Rockwell may exist in some parallel universe, its aspirational qualities, innocence, and simplicity are now a few medicated milligrams away. These edibles became a small doorway to an unleashed imagination and a joy that’s unencumbered by the daily onslaught of bad news and bummer vibes.
I started with two pieces containing 10mg of THC apiece, which complimented my morning coffee nicely. While I had an initial case of stomach queasiness, it, along with any other discomfort I may have been feeling, disappeared once these edibles took hold. It would have been a smarter decision on my part to eat an actual breakfast before taking these, but I’m not big on breakfast. I am, however, big on getting high. After an hour, I was feeling every bit of this medicated taffy, and it washed over me with childlike wonder.
My initial reaction was to get outdoors. This was not the sort of high I wanted to explore while being cooped up inside. For no other reason than I hadn’t done it in years, I felt like playing tennis. I texted my neighbor asking if he had a tennis racquet and he replied, “Why?” I then told him I was making a lovely racquet soup for lunch and I’d forgotten the most important ingredient. When I didn’t get a reply for a good ten minutes, I figured he was taking me seriously so I texted again and said, “To play tennis with you knucklehead.” Turned out he was high too. It was turning into the perfect scenario, and he finally agreed that he was down to play.
I met him at the townhome development tennis court across the street, which is rarely occupied. While the idea of playing tennis was a fun one, this high by no means had me channeling my inner Boris Becker. I got trounced early and often, but it is a great testament to this edible that I was still going strong after an hour of playing in the hot sun. When we were done screwing around, I quietly commended myself for not losing my cool and slamming my racquet against the clay court. This edible was helping me turn into an adult. Finally.
“It has a liberating effect that knocks down mental walls and pushes you to either explore or engage”
Afterward, we made our way to the pool area to cool off. Diving into the deep end was a heavenly sensation. I felt supremely relaxed, and it wasn’t until I’d claimed a beach chair and closed my eyes that I felt this edible play out its intended tune. With a fun workout in the bag and a little R&R in effect, I let the midday breeze and 20mg of cannabis-infused taffy carry me away to a place of my own making. I was approaching hour three of this high, and the embers of euphoria were still shining bright.
Cheeba Chews’ Chocolate Taffy comes in a pack of 10 for a total of 100mg of THC. This is the kind of nostalgia-inducing high that’s suitable for either day or night. It has a liberating effect that knocks down mental walls and pushes you to either explore or engage, making them a great choice for morning workouts or outdoor adventures. If you’re more of a couch potato when it comes to edibles, these don’t change a thing. Just chew and take a walk down memory lane. There’s something in these sweet, Tootsie Roll tasting taffies that elicits the best version of your former self, whether real or imagined.
