Cannabis-Infused Pita Crisps From Compassion Edibles
Continuing their 14-year tradition of producing qualiy cannabis-infused products, Compassion Edibles produces these signature Pita Crisps – “lightly toasted pita bread crisps, coated in cannabis oil and seasoned to perfection.” They can be found in packages that contain 150 mg of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) total.
Compassion Edibles Creates Tasty, Effective Infused Edibles
Based in the San Francisco Bay area, Compassion Edibles strives to produce the best-tasting and most effective infused edibles to cannabis patients in California. They have an impressively wide range of products, and the company recently kicked it into full gear, drastically increasing its reach over the past few months.
Compassion Edibles has been a patient favorite for over a decade – the company was founded by Mickey Martin under the name Tainted Edibles in 2000. Prior to their facilities being raided by the FDA during the same year, Compassion/Tainted Inc. offered a total of 52 different products in various sizes and strengths.
“Compassion offers a variety of medicated sweets, including Baklava, Snickerdoodle cookies, Caramel Corn and more.”
In 2013, the company decided to regroup and redesigned their product line, while paying homage to their past offering.
While they are best known for their line of Tainted Truffles, Compassion offers a variety of medicated sweets, including Baklava, Snickerdoodle cookies, Caramel Corn and more.
Of course they have a few savory options too, including bagel crisps and tortilla chips. I decided to start with the Pita Crisps.
Extra Strength Pita Crisps: A Light, Cannabis-Infused Snack
After reviewing two different Tainted Truffles (French Chocolate and Black and White), I was excited to try one of Compassion Edibles’ savory edible options.
Believe it or not, it is the detailed information provided on each package that I appreciate most about Compassion Edibles. The display includes a prominent warning label that reads, “CONTAINS CANNABIS”, as well as another warning that the product contains peanuts.
Furthermore, I was happy to see that Compassion Edibles clearly dictates which strains of cannabis they use in each recipe. The list of ingredients for the Pita Crisps is as follows:
- Pita Bread (Flour, Salt, Sugar, Yeast)
- Canola Oil
- Cannabis Butter (Primarily Sour Diesel and OG Kush)
Also provided on the Pita Crisp labeling is a note that estimates how much dried cannabis each package contains (≈12.45 grams), born on/best by dates, and a lot number in order to allow Compassion to track each batch they produce. The company recently added bar codes to their packaging as well, and we’ll be looking to update this review with pictures that reflect this change as soon as possible.
The only other piece of information I would personally like to see on Compassion Edible’s labeling is a more detailed breakdown of the cannabinoid profile. While it clearly provides the tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) content (150 mg), I would love to know how much cannabidiol (CBD), cannabinol (CBN), etc. is contained in each package.
How Might The Extra Strength Pita Crisps Affect Me?
According to the Compassion Edibles website, they want their packaging to look like a product you could find in your local pharmacy. However, all that is thrown out the door once you have a chance to taste their Pita Crisps.
Dipping them in hummus from Lusy’s Mediterranean made for a delicious mid-day treat. The spices that Compassion uses to season their Pita Crisps meshed perfectly with the hummus, and they were more than tastey enough to eat on their own.
“Half the package (75 mg of THC) was enough to deliver some much needed muscle relief without leaving me drowsy.”
Half the package (75 mg of THC) was enough to deliver some much needed muscle relief without leaving me drowsy. But I was most impressed by the intense feeling of satisfaction that I experienced immediately after my last bite – my entire body seemed to be at equilibrium.
I was genuinely impressed by by the Pita Crisps, and I would suggest them to any patient who is looking for a light infused edible snack that packs a punch. Those looking for an added kick of cannabinoids can even pair the Pita Crisps with Compassion Edibles’ very own medicated hummus.
