Whether or not most edibles available in legal states today can be called “medical” is debatable. But, as we have seen, so is the concept of “medical marijuana,” while the law in most states permits medical use of marijuana, dispensaries often serve the recreational community by default as well.

As we enter the era of legalization and the medical industry matures, some great products have found their way to dispensary shelves, which have revolutionized the way patients use marijuana medicinally.

Recently, I picked up a quad dose of Cheeba Chews Cannabidiol (CBD)/THC mix for pain relief at Buds & Roses Collective in Studio City, Calif., as an experiment for treating symptoms of Crohn’s Disease.

I was immediately struck by the packaging. Not only is it clean and appropriately labeled to distinguish it as a medical product, not a piece of candy, it also has marking along the side, kind of like a stick of butter, that demarcates each of the 17.5mg THC doses contained in the single chew. This marking allows patients to accurately monitor their THC/CBD intake and observe results in a more scientific manner than just eating a cookie and waiting to see what happens.

I obtained my first medical marijuana recommendation in California in 2005 but have avoided most edibles because they were too sugary, too strong and were hardly ever labeled in a way that I could make sense of what I was putting in my body, what the effects would be and how long they would last.

By dividing the chew into eight 8.75mg THC doses I was able to do something rarely done with a standard edible — titrate my doses and find the right balance for me. Normally, I recommend those new to edibles to try a tiny sliver of the product they have obtained and wait up to an hour to feel the effects and determine the best dose for them.

The power to measure my dosage and document the effects has been revolutionary for me, even as a longtime medical cannabis user. It is much easier to start with “8.75mg” than “a sliver.” The chews taste and look like a Tootsie Roll.

The effects of the Cheeba Chew set in much quicker than a typical edible, likely because they infuse the chews with cannabis oil rather than cannabis extracted into butter.

In states where medical marijuana is legal; doctor’s can recommend you use cannabis but rarely can they give you advice about dosage or method of ingestion. Patients are responsible to determine the best means of consumption for them. Edibles have become a means of heavy dosage for recreational and medical users alike, but for those new to medical marijuana the Cheeba Chew is a much needed tool in cannabis therapy.

Not only were the effects instant, they were long lasting, clean and powerful. As the dose sets in, pain melts away and if you’re trying to sleep, sleep you will. Every time I have taken a dose before bed I have slept 8-10 hours, no easy feat for an insomniac and caffeine junkie.

Cheeba Chews has made a convert and a preacher out of me. Not only are the chews delicious, the quality and effects are consistent with every single dose. These are what “medibles” should be and I am excited to see Cheeba Chews expand and develop new medicines.

    The CBD chews will take care of the seizures, and knock down the pain so you can function. I have spinal arthritis w DJD, have had one back surgery to regain feeling in legs. w cbd, I don’t need the narcotics or muscle relaxants. and it doesn’t knock me out & I can still function. I still take gabapentin for the nerve damage…i’m also diabetic. The dr recommended I stick to edibles due to asthma. Since 2005 my son has legally used cannabis for seizures (tonic/clonic, partial complex, and absence) w/o the toxicity of FDA drugs that kill the liver and require constant blood tests. (and usually only treat one type of seizure) If you can, try the cbd chews. titer yourself, if u don’t already use cannabis. start w 5 mg then move up to 10. everyone is different and tolerances vary as u use. me, I don’t care for the high feeling, and it just makes me sleepy. can’t drive to work. The cbd handles the pain without the THC side effects, which is perfect for this working senior. be aware that THC works wonders for some, especially in concert w high cbd. try different types. take back some control of what u put in your body. Slowly. kept what works. moderation is key.

    I sware by them. When I eat a 1/4-1/3rd of one, I don’t need as many bump ups on my spinal pain pump, or as many Dilaudids/muscle relaxers during the day, leaving me less side effects. My Co op is usually stocked w/ the CBD Cheeba Chews. VERY GOOD product! 🙂

    I am 25 with chronic pain due to permanent nerve damage in my neck from a car accident. I am on painkillers when I’m in pa but when I go to ca for vacation I don’t use them I eat these. It totally 100% works for my pain without making me overly stoned so I can actually function. My uncle was diagnosed with lung and pancreatic cancer. He lost 60 pounds when he was diagnosed and quickly went into hospice since the VA said we can’t help. We began giving him a chew when he remarried his ex and got health insurance. He began chemo and gained 10 pounds in a week due to these. They are literally saving his life and help him with his pain. I can’t wait to move to cali so I can get off all the pain medicine and use these regularly for my pain.

      I picked up 3 yesterday. I live in WA. State and they cost $20 each. I haven’t tried yet but plan too soon and like most, severe pain, 90% disabled / retired veteran on oxycodone for 5 years. Pain meds are very tricky to manage but I’ve consistent on not raising the number. I have used Cheeba Chews before. They made the following: Indica, Sativa, Hybrid and CBD (medical). The others cost $10 each and I’ve found the Indica is way too strong (don’t like) with taking a tiny sliver (pea size or smaller). The Sativa work very good and recommend those as well. I have a hybrid but have not tried yet. Hope this helps.

    Hey i have to take 3 of the deca dose’s before i even feel the slightest bit of high or my pain to go away. For me to be lifted like a bowl would have me i have to eat 5 that is right 5 of the highest strength. This company needs to make stronger ones and i am not kidding. These things suck so bad

      Hi Eric, thanks for giving us a try!! Everyone reacts slightly different to edibles and has to determine their optimal dosage. Looks like you personally need something much stronger.

      There’s only so much THC you can pack into a 10g, 35 calorie, piece of chocolate taffy and we decided 175mg of cannabis extract was the limit we’d go and is more then enough for the majority of patients. There are 1000 mg products on the medical market that may be more effective for those that need an extremely high dosage of THC.

      Good luck!

      Wow. I’m a regular smoker and 1/4 of the deca dose has me very medicated. Are you sure what you tried wasn’t very expired? I had a quad dose that was a couple months beyond the expiry date and it was notably weaker. I have a hard time believing you can smoke one bowl and get high but a deca dose does nothing. Odd.

    I was hit by a drunk driver in 2004 and have been dealing with the long term issues like nerve damage in my neck and back along with siezures and surgeries. I take six medications daily and have searched for some thing like this for so long. I dont smoke and I dont like smoking pot but I would love to try some thing like this.
