Maryland has had an ongoing debate about edibles... The debate is compete, and now here they come, for starters here we have tasty 25mg THC infused Chews from Curio Wellness and let me just say these kind of rock... really hard.
Curio spent a good 6 months in development with these Chews, they used different patient trial groups to focus on quality, consistency, taste and potency.
They came up with the current four flavors using this data driven method with differing amounts of medicine, three of which have been released:
For our testing purposes we sampled the Ginger Mango Batch @ 25mg THC... No messing around here.
These Chews are very tasty, having zero plant taste as the base is distillate, the consistency of the Chews are good, not too soft where they melt into your mouth instantly and not hard at all... the Chews dissolved within a couple minutes with a little help from actually chewing the Chews, then the wait....
After waiting patiently for about an hour, the first effects started to show themselves.... Heavy eyes, slightly changed perception as the music started to sound just that much "cooler" the chronic pain in my hands started to loosen a bit and things in general just become more pleasant as the bliss part started to take hold.
I was in a nice place a healthy state of being... Plus I was getting some work done, in what seemed like 15 minutes I looked up from my work to see that three hours had passed!
I took another 25mg Chew... Needless to say the blissful state become a bit more intense, overall the experience was very enjoyable as I was in a comfortable warm place mentally... a bit fuzzy around the edges, but nice nonetheless.
I was able to go about my day quite normally but behind the eyelids something wonderful was happening and it was like my little secret.
If you are into potent euphoric long lasting pain relief then this might be the product for you... Kudos once again Curio Wellness

🌴🌄 - Purple Punch x Sunset Sherbet
With 32% + total cannabinoids 🔥 and 1.44% terps 🔥 this new batch from @evermorecompany is a real knock out uplifting experience.

Try with some mango juice... as it will enhance the experience, and the taste is great with this strain.

Good for anxiety and overall general depression, with a really swell feel-good vibe.
Very relaxing while allowing you to be generally active... the eyelids become heavy and you start to notice the little things around you just that much more, alert euphoric experience... very heady, then rolls into a nice relaxing place.

MC Fan Favorite - Sugar Biscuits 🔥🔥 with Culta and The Maryland Connoisseur 😎
I have been waiting anxiously for this one... And the wait was well worth it. MC and @cultaig new fan favorite... Sugar Biscuits.
An intense and fairly heavy hybrid testing @ 28.4% total cannabinoids and a WICKED terpene profile @ 3.39% 🔥 B Myrcene and B Caryophelene the two most prominent terps.
Effects and Genetics
The effects come on quickly and the onset is pretty intense... expect some initial anxiety as this strain goes straight for the heady head at first and it's a wild ride until the body waves roll in after about 20 minutes.
It's great for unwinding at the end of the day without being incapacitated and serves to prepare the body and mind for a night of restful sleep.
This strain started off with a little mental boost, serving to slap you awake a little bit with its potency. Beyond the unique physical sensations with this one, it moved quickly into an Indica state of goofy, slightly lazy relaxation where mental function was intact, but just barely.
More From Archive:
"The 09 Animal Cookies is one of the best “cookie” clones out there. Dense bulbous trichomes adorn the beautiful purple and black leafed buds. Dense is an understatement. Some of the phenotypes are almost like stones. A great yielding, flavorful, colorful mix of the best genes in the Kush and Cookie kingdoms."

Do YOU like 💚🍪 Cookies? - Key Lime Cookies Will Satisfy 🔥🍪🌿 with Evermore and The Maryland Connoisseur 😎
Very glad to have Key Lime Cookies back in my collection, this hard hitting hybrid strain from @evermorecompany really delivers the pain relief... And quickly at that.

The Key Lime Experience
This dessert-worthy weed strain is a whirlwind of a hybrid. Fast-acting, patients are ensnared in a hazy mental experience and a calming relaxation after just a few tastes.
For many, this happy-hearted flower is a “one and done” kind of strain. This herb may sound innocent, but it can certainly pack of psychoactive punch. However, the overall experience is euphoric and friendly, not sinister.

EFFECTS + MEDICAL
Wedding Cake is a hybrid with indica-dominance. It is attained by crossing GSC with Cherry Pie.
It gives an exceptionally sweet aromatic essence and a fruity flavour. The taste is a perfect combination of sweetness of cookies and fruitiness of a cherry pie. It works as a calming agent and appetite stimulator, and is quite helpful for patients who experience regular depression-associated syndromes, fibromyalgia, MS and other such related symptoms.
Wedding Cake may act as a sedative for patients, but does help in calming down nerves or controlling anxiety stimulating symptoms. Although it might not completely hamper your focus and energy levels, it will cause the usual drying out of eyes and mouth.
This particular medical marijuana is grown under natural sunlight (thanks SunMed). It is observed to contain a THC level of 22-27% In terms of physical features, it is shaped like pine trees and looks dense in its structural form. It is quite frosty looking and has dark green and purple leaves with bright orange pistils.
Old School Effects 🔥🙏 - Bubba Kush with Curio and The Maryland Connoisseur 😎
Cultivator - Curio Wellness
This is one very powerful Indica, be prepared for hard hitting old school indica euphoric effects... Like it was back in the day.
Afghani and OG Kush team up for this Connoisseur strain... Happy feelings and good tidings abound while that nasty anxiety is whisked away at least for a few hours.
Sleep... This strain is excellent for insomnia
The Bubba Kush strain is classified as an indica strain, producing many of the effects expected from this variety, including happiness, muscle relaxation, sleepiness, couch-lock and increased appetite (here come the munchies!).
Its genetic makeup is composed of around 27% THC, making it a potent and above-average strain in regards to THC content, and its makeup is composed of 70% indica and 30% sativa. Although its genetics are not pure bred indica, don’t cut this strain short, considering it has been proven to be a wonderful choice for pain relief, insomnia, nausea, loss of appetite, stress and so much more.
Although the true origins of Bubba Kush are not 100% known, the Bubba Kush strain is believed to have OG Kush and a super potent Afghani as possible parents, with the rest of the genetic lineage sort of remaining a blur and a mystery.
Kudos @curio_wellness on another fine batch of the classic cultivar, Bubba Kush... One of my top faves 😎🔥💜🌿👊🧘♀️⚕️🔥👍

Aromatherapy 👃 with Purple ☯️ Obeah and Evermore + The Maryland Connoisseur 😎
The smell is simply amazing on this sample from @evermorecompany... Very very purple dank grapes smell waft up from the container and let's you know this strain means some serious business... Pain Relief with a capital P.
Tests @ 15.5% THC but don't let that lull you into thinking this is a lightweight... On the contrary this strain and it's well developed terp 👃 profile satisfies even this high tolerance Connoisseur 😎 CBG and CBGA, B Myrcene are well represented.
The medium-mellow powered effects trail off after about an hour or so... so be prepared to top up, I have found this is a GREAT strain to add a dab of concentrate, the heavy terp profile only adds to the extra raw THC pleasure.
Enjoy It fellow Connoisseurs...

These very dense flowers are coated in frosty kief with lime green hues and 🍊 orange pistols... The effects are pretty immediate and hard hitting testing @ 23.50% THC THCa...a very Haze like feeling comes over you and eventually washes into a very nice pain relieving body high great for evenings in.

0.08% B Pinene
0.38 B Myrcene
0.20% D Limonene

I like a good indica in the evening, and this one doesn't disappoint. After a few hits, my head feels like mashed potatoes and I say funny shit and the Mr. and I giggle like hyenas. Then we curl up together in our hyena den and sleep. When we awake in the morning, we are humans again.
“We're you feeling a bit down? Conspiracy Kush can rapidly change your mood. Instant euphoria. Try not to smile....Almost impossible. Not a whole lot is going to bother you. Relaxing. You can stay awake if that's what you'd like to do.....or not. Anyway, it's a wonderful strain.
Donkey Butter - Grease 🔥🔥Monkey (GG4 x Cookies & Cream ) x Triple OG = Powerfully Balanced Experience with Culta and The Maryland Connoisseur 😎
Another view of Culta's new batch of joy... Donkey Butter and the search for the perfect pheno.
Good evening fellow Connoisseurs up tonight is an image of Culta new batch strains Donkey Butter and what I can say is this... Another keeper 🔥🔥🌿🌿
“The buzz that you get off this strain is truly one in a million. It's very relaxing and a great way to end a long day. The texture is hella fuzzy with a little bit of stickiness. Purple leaves + Orange Pistols and crystalized as hell. I rank this one among my favorite strains...
...this strain comes loaded with loud fuel-forward aromas intermixed with a fragrant dose of forest and earth. Donkey Butter is a heavy producer and expresses dark leaves with deep colors. This funky flower leans toward sedation, weighing heavy on the limbs and relaxing the mind. Its physical and mental dullness can blunt stress, pain, and the pangs of daily living.
