Zoom Meetings Have Met Their Minty Match
Sometimes, all you need is a little boost to get you to the finish line.
IN REVIEW: Talk about a boost! If these Coconut Yuzu Boost Mints can get me through a two and half hour Zoom block, they can get you through anything. With a casual 2.5 mg of THC and 2.5 mg THCV in each mint, these uniquely delicious treats offer a euphoric boost that lasts. Whether you’re conquering your workday, need to refresh your mind (or breath) after lunch, or just need a mood reliable boost, make Kikoko your new go-to when you need to see a cumbersome task through.
I don’t know about everyone else, but I personally don’t mind working from home. I can wear whatever I want, casually stroll to my kitchen when I want a snack, get some laundry done in between meetings, or even work poolside if there isn’t too much going on — but that doesn’t mean it’s all puppies and rainbows. Working from home brought on a new kind of torture: Zoom meetings.
I don’t know what it is about a virtual meeting that is just mind-numbing. Maybe it’s because I’m a writer and I need to be in the zone to focus properly, but whatever the reason is, I’m always looking for a way to improve my attitude when I have a Zoom-heavy day.
Smoking can often derail my day so I usually go the edible route, but even then, so many options are sugary or sweet. So when Kikoko’s Cannabis Infused Botanical Mints came across my path, I was really curious.
“I decided these might be the perfect pick-me-up to get me through.”
The bright green, poppy packaging described these particular mints as the Boost variety with energizing effects and a coconut yuzu flavor. So far, I was liking everything I read. As I looked at the two-and-a-half-hour block of meetings looming on my calendar that afternoon, I decided these might be the perfect pick-me-up to get me through it all.
I placed the container on my desk so I could pop a few in my mouth after I finished my afternoon tea. When I sipped the last drops and my alarm warned me that my first meeting was a mere ten minutes away, I tossed a couple of the green-colored mints in my mouth.
I have a pretty high tolerance, so when I saw that these had 2.5 mg THC and 2.5 mg THCV, I trusted that I could handle more than one (but you know yourself so dose appropriately).
With that being said, let’s get to the flavorful punch that these tiny treats pack. I truly don’t think I’ve ever tasted anything quite like this. The yuzu pops through first before bitter base notes take over and a creamy yet minty flavor finishes the whole experience. It was far more complex and interesting than I imagined. When you think of mints, you don’t automatically think that they’re going to be a party in your mouth, but this was a whole dang parade in my mouth.
The minty flavor lingers for just a moment and leaves you feeling awake, present, and refreshed—and I’m not even talking about the effects yet. That was just the taste.
I logged into my first meeting and it was business as usual. My coworker described an upcoming project they’d like me to work on and I politely listened, nodded my head, and smiled into the camera when appropriate. When it ended a few minutes later, I took a big sigh and mentally prepared myself for the next one where I would be presenting some of my work. I had about 10 minutes to spare, so I casually grabbed myself a glass of water and sat back down in my office chair.
“The effects were really spot-on for what they described on the packaging.”
I logged into the next meeting and my coworker kicked things off. Once she completed her presentation, it was my turn. And a few minutes into reading my work, it hit me like a warm wave of honey: I was high as a kite.
I was laughing way too hard at my own jokes and enjoying myself far too much for the typical Zoom. I got everyone in the meeting giggling with me and I was truly having a fantastic time! The effects were really spot-on for what they described on the packaging. As soon I began to feel them kick in, it was just pure happiness and a boost of energy.
I sailed through the remaining 90 minutes of calls like it was nothing. Overall, this high has a really nice build and an even-keeled letdown. At first, it's super upbeat but present, then it gives way to a more mellow, mindful energy, and finishes with a sense of calm. So by the time I logged off for the day, I just felt ready to unwind and kick back.
Kikoko’s Little Helpers gave me exactly what I needed to get through the Zoom Day from hades—who knew all I needed was just a few mints to turn my day around. I’ll definitely turn to these again (in fact, I already have because I loved them that much) any time my calendar is filled with meetings, as a refresher after lunch, or whenever I simply need a boost.
