Take it from me, someone with a serious sweet tooth: these paleo, gluten free, dairy free, soy-free, non-GMO, low glycemic (you still with me?) cookies are actually good.

When I first looked at the rounded dark brown cookie nubbin, I thought, “Oh great. A squirrel biscuit.” It just looks, you know…healthy. But before you judge it, go take a bite and report back to me about the supreme crunch-meets- soft texture and cinnamon-y coconut flavor. It’s weirdly perfect. This edible is comprised with only whole food ingredients, like chia and hemp seeds. It really does taste like a handful of yummy trail mix, but in cookie form.

For pain relief, I enthusiastically recommend the Trail Mix Super Nova Cookies. Made from plants grown at a small permaculture farm, MM’s cannabis extract is clarifying and consistent. It’s a sativa- hybrid blend, and has the A+ combination of THC, CBD, as well as THCA and CBDA, which create the synergistic power of whole plant cannabis. The cookie’s effects are sweet and elevating.

Each cookie is 10 mgs, which felt like a nice balance between relaxation and still very social for me. The Trail Mix Super Nova seems like a fun one for sharing, with mellow and giggly effects. It also just made my body feel easeful. Kind of an at-home- in-my- skin vibe.

There’s a variety of cookie flavors to try from Moonman’s Mistress, including the crowd pleasing Cosmic Cacao Peppermint, Pumpkin Pecan Mini Space Cake, Chocolate Chip Crater, and Lunar Lemon Maca Shortbread. The innovative space-themed packaging makes this an excellent gift for all Star Wars buffs, horoscope nerds, and Neil de Grasse Tyson fans.

The Wrap: Moonman’s Mistress’ treats are perfect for those looking for a no-guilt, super-clean Paleo (and gluten free etc.) treat that’s elevating, social, and relaxing. It’s a wonderful choice for athletes looking to ease muscle soreness after an extra-hard workout.

Potency: 10 mg of THC in every cookie, 5 cookies per pack.

Effects: The Trail Mix Super Nova cookie was a 10 out of 10 experience, though depending on your relationship to strong edibles, too much of this cookie might put you to sleep. I’d start with a quarter or a half of a cookie, wait 1-2 hours, and see how you feel.

Price: $20.00

Availability: Though a San Francisco based company, MoonMan’s Mistress products are available at GetSava.com and select dispensaries in the Bay Area.
