Keep Tabs on Yourself
Humboldt Apothecary’s fast-acting sativa and indica tablets provide a clarity that’s seldom experienced in edibles.
IN REVIEW: Both of Humboldt Apothecary’s Indica and Sativa tablets contain 10mg THC, and it doesn’t matter if you’re looking for the type of medicinal product to jumpstart your morning or end your evening, they’ve got you covered. Expect these sugar and gluten-free pills to provide full-bodied effects and a fog clearing clarity you can rely on. And they aren’t kidding when they say they’re fast acting, so don’t pop one until you’re prepared for the high to hit you. And when it does, get ready to tackle a to-do list, or take to the couch.
I started with Humboldt Apothecary’s 10mg Sativa tablet. I consumed one shortly after a light breakfast, and washed it down with a glass of water. True to billing, this fast-acting swallowable kicked in at around the 15-minute mark. It was just the push I needed to get into the garage and log a workout. The same workout I was procrastinating doing just a few moments prior. This high gave me a nice jolt and a euphoric drive that resulted in a pretty intense workout. Being that I wasn’t straining my lungs from smoking flower or risking crashing out with a sugary edible, this solventless sativa seemed like a really good pre-workout choice.
“This high gave me a nice jolt and a euphoric drive that resulted in a pretty intense workout. ”
The high stayed with me well after my morning exercise, and I took it into my meal prepping for the week ahead. Before I knew it, I’d made a full-fledged feast complete with several options. Somehow I didn’t snack along with my cooking, which told me this is not the sort of edible that’s likely to bring on the munchies. It’s the sort of sativa that keeps you focused on the goal at hand. Like a coach.
I was continuously surprised with the durability and lasting nature of this 10mg tablet. Even after I showered up and resigned myself to the sofa, it powered me through two episodes of The Great Pottery Showdown, and by the time I’d gotten to the meat of Season 2, and I was ready to start ordering fire kilns and pottery wheels. It’s the sort of pitch perfect buzz that really makes you jazzed about things. I had no adverse issues with this high, and I found that it struck just the right note of go-getterness and awe.
Once the Sativa tablets wore off and night was beginning to fall, at an odd time mind you (thanks to daylight savings), I swallowed the 10mg Indica tablet and muttered to myself, “To hell with Daylight Savings Time.” This high also came on quickly. About 15 minutes in, I began to feel like I was being swaddled by a momma bear. Allowing her ursine paws to brush back what’s left of my hair, and tell me that everything’s going to be alright (but in that low growl that’s indicative of bear language). Within a half-hour into this high, I was truly at peace with the world.
I decided to up the ante and whip out the neck massager. I was adrift in soreness from my morning workout, so I thought the combination of 10mgs of THC and a robotic Skymall masseuse would do just the trick. Boy was I right. I began to sink ever further into the welcoming heart of my couch, and where the Sativa tablet was a stern taskmaster when it came to food cravings, the Indica proclaimed, “Let Them Eat Cake!” So it was then that I ordered two cupcakes from the good people at Sprinkles, and when they finally came, I promptly ate them both. The heavens did weep.
“It was an absent-minded pleasure cruise of basic bacchanalia.”
I believe I lifted my physical body one more time that evening to go brush my teeth, and then I was right back from whence I came. With 10mgs of THC and the essence of cupcake permeating through me, I resigned myself to a heavenly repose of watching Frasier reruns and scrolling through my Instagram feed. It was an absent-minded pleasure cruise of basic bacchanalia. If you’re having trouble sleeping, all that I can tell you is that I definitely clonked out some time around hour two of this high, and the next morning I was well rested.
Both the sativa and indica tablets provide an effective way to relieve stress and relax both mind and body. Where the sativa shines as an energy booster while delivering an inspirational and clear-headed high, the indica is a slow-moving glacier that works to lull you into submission. An ethereally relaxing ride into the psyche. And at 10mgs, that’s impressive.
