The time had finally come to use my impulse-bought-tie-dye-kit. Early on in quarantine, I scooped up a pack of multi-colored dye, thinking that it would undoubtedly come in handy as a cure for my inevitable boredom. It had been sitting under my kitchen sink, waiting for the perfect moment—and that moment had finally arrived.
Some friends and I were getting together for the first time in months, so it felt appropriate to do something a little out of the ordinary to commemorate the moment. On the way out the door, I grabbed some old white tees, my trusty tie-dye kit and some of Kiva’s Camino Yuzu Lemon Gummies.
“My taste buds reveled in the rich layers of citrus that continued to unfold.”
I’d never tried these gummies before, but the 1:1 ratio of CBD to THC promised a balanced calm that felt appropriate for a laidback evening of creating. Without any hesitation, I twisted open the multi-colored can and couldn’t resist taking a whiff of the little yellow shapes bouncing around inside. The smell had a deeply sweet tang to it that reminded me of those little lemon drop candies you got as a kid. Intrigued, I popped one into my mouth.
While the smell may have reminded me of those rock-hard lemon candies of my childhood, these gummies had a soft, pillowy, almost jello-like texture that pleased my grown-up palate. As I chomped away, my taste buds reveled in the rich layers of citrus that continued to unfold. First, there’s a satisfying sharp bite of lemon that melts away to reveal the sweet notes you might find in the juicy bits of a grapefruit. With only five milligrams of THC and CBD in each gummy, I greedily gobbled up another feeling confident in my tolerance level.
Once I reached my friend’s house, we set up our tie-dye station outside and got to work. As we wrapped rubber bands around our shirts and twisted them into varying shapes, I started to notice my mind and body moving just a touch slower. My breath seemed to deepen as my mind slowed to a meditative pace, allowing me to take pleasure in the present moment. Feeling like a zenned-out version of The Dude himself, I grabbed my first bottle of dye.
As the bright fuchsia dye splashed onto my shirt and slowly mixed with the blue next to it, creating a very psychedelic effect, I couldn’t help but feel like I was being transported down memory lane. Wrapped in flannel, with the crisp fall air surrounding me and edibles in my purse, it all felt like something out of a 1970s movie. Groovy soul music gently wafted over to us from the Bluetooth speaker as the one small reminder that we were indeed still in 2020.
I can imagine the balanced high I was feeling was also a huge difference from the hippy days of old. My mind felt chill and creative enough to craft some serious tie-dye masterpieces, yet mindful and alert enough to chat it up with my friends. My muscles on the other hand, softened into the seat and released all of the tension that had built up from the day. All I had to do was kick back and enjoy the ride.
“The gummies were the smooth and steady ride that I needed to carry me through the night.”
As we finished up our creations and cleaned up for dinner, my stomach began to growl at the thought of some munchies. I don’t know if it was just me, the gummies or a combination of both, but I was suddenly ravenous. When the doorbell finally rang with our grub, the house filled with the aroma of Chinese food and I eagerly sat down at the table. I felt my high begin to dull with each stir-fried bite, but the serenity from the CBD still lingered as the perfect nightcap. With the night coming to a close, Camino’s Yuzu Lemon Gummies were the smooth and steady ride that I needed to carry me through the night.
Overall, these infused delights were an excellent companion to both do something artsy and enjoy the company of friends. With no offensive bitterness or weird artificial flavor, these yummy gummies are exactly what you need for a balanced dose of Mary Jane. Whether it’s in the daytime to go for a stroll or in the evening to unwind with a bubble bath, each gummy has a sublime combination of THC and CBD that makes you feel just the right amount of high—I think our hippy forefathers, and even El Duderino, would be impressed.
