Cannabis product review: Fruit Slabs

For those of you who were/are obsessed with fruit rolls ups, Fruit-by-the-Foot, or anything that starts in “fruit” and ends in “leather,” you’re going to love the Fruit Slab. With an A+ texture and gob-smacking good taste, the raw, vegan, organic Slab’s got a lot going on.

Fruity notes will explode your palate right away. The Slabs come in four different flavors – the OG Mango, Grandaddy Grape, Tropical Haze, and Mango Maui Wowie. The “Wowie” lives up to its name, with its blend of mango and coconut flavors sprinkled with coconut flakes on top (yum). The Wowie is also a little different in that it comes in ten individual mini-leathers rather than one strip. Flavor-wise, I loved the Tropical Haze best, which did win 2nd place Edible at 2017’s Chalice Cup.

The Fruit Slabs are super clean, ingredients-wise. It’s just pureed organic fruit and solvent-free cannabis extract. Each fruit leather contains 100 mgs of THC, and for dosing purposes, each fruit leather is scored so as you start to peel it, it’s easy to see how to only consume a 10mg strip. Reliable dosing is a common fear amongst folks regarding edibles, and it’s nice that Fruit Slabs goes the extra mile for ease and consistency.

So even though you’re probably going to want to eat the entire fruit leather, you should know that the THC distillate in this edible is powerful. I felt the effects within a half an hour, a gentle softening ‘round the edges. Around the hour mark, I breathed easier as I realized my staring-at-screens headache had faded, too. Mood-wise, I definitely felt some psychoactivity (the good kind) and gentle uplifting effects.

Depending on your body, there’s anywhere from a single dose to 20. If you’re sensitive, you may need only a half a strip at a time (which you can easily do with the Slab’s resealable packaging). At about $15 bucks a pop, this is an affordable yet potent edible. With its reasonable price and satisfying effects, this treat will remind you of going to the beach even on dark, cold winter days.

The Wrap: Fruit Slabs are ideal for health-conscious folks who prefer edibles – it’s vegan, gluten-free, non-GMO, uses sun-grown, full-plant extract…you name it, the makers of the Fruit Slab have already thought of it. Plus, it’s just fun to eat a medicated fruit leather! If you’re in any kind of discomfort, the vibes of this organic, vegan, medicated treat will instantly put a smile on your face.
