EDIBLE OF THE MONTH

TAO GARDENS MARS LOVE TRIANGLE

LEMON ZEST CANNABIS FLOWER ROSIN GUMMIES Tao Gardens is a Eugene operation touted for its holistic, no-till growing methods and potent, flavorful flowers. Recently, the company coupled with Corvallis candy producer Green Valley Chocolates to offer Oregon’s first single strain, flower rosin gummies. Tao’s edible debut features a strain that they’ve become well known for in flower form. Mars Love Triangle is a cross between Triangle Kush, Mars OG and Snow Lotus. The effects are uplifting and euphoric when inhaled, but how does the strain treat tokers when ingested? This picky patient pounded a pack for the sake of science... The edible endeavor brought a tantalizing, tart lemon flavor that lingered pleasantly after each piece. These soft, smooth, circular gummies are easy to get down in one 50mg dose, and are only subtly sweet. You’ll find a gentle rosin flavor, but it doesn’t linger like some extract-infused candies. The luscious, lemon puree provides plenty of flavor to cleanse the palate. Heavy eyelids were the first to make an appearance in the effects category, but there was an unexpected second wave shortly after battling back some sleepiness. Heaving through a heavy-eyed haze, this consumer found the euphoric and energizing effects that Mars Love Triangle has been known for. Hours into the experience, the gummies still provided a mental clarity and calmness that doesn’t often accompany edibles. Tao Gardens’ single strain, single batch, real fruit gummies are gluten free and vegan friendly. Fastidious folks will find these gummies gloriously easy to eat, especially if they’re looking for something a little less sweet.
