For a trippy craft centric cannabis experience check out the offerings from Portland based Drip Sweets. All their products are made using natural locally sourced ingredients for a taste sensation that elevates one’s taste buds to another level. As per their website copy, this women run business seeks to “raise higher vibrations in the world. We make beautiful and unique infused treats that open up space for new experiences, ones that nudge us all towards a path of curiosity and discovery. We invite our community to play and explore the world letting their imaginations take the reigns.”
Drip launched in 2014 when Andi Bixel decided to combine her background as a home chef with her love of cannabis into creating a cannabis infused ice cream. The rich ice cream sensation brings out the childlike sense of joy while the dairy fuses with the cannabis to produce a comforting smooth full body high that feels blissful like one is surrounded by creamy butter. Choose from a 10mg or 50mg THC strengths, so one can tailor their experience depending if they desire a short recreational shot or a more stronger medicinal strength dose. Currently, the ice cream is available in salted caramel and cookies & cream flavors. Drip Sweets will be re-launching their ice cream line in late spring or early summer with plans to expand the range of their ice cream flavors.
Then in January 2018, Bixel crafted their luxury Gems hard candy to give wishing crystals to her friends as gifts. Made from molds created from actual crystals, these candies create an energetic connection for those who believe in the healing power of crystals.
Upon placing a gem in one’s hand be prepared to experience a multi-layered high that can expand one’s body and mind. Interested explorers should start their journey by ingesting the candy sublingually while sucking on the sweet. Then sit back and savor an internal high as the candy is consumed. Choose from a white mint illuminate for a deep relaxing dive into the realm of flow or a citrine quartz for a vibrant uplifting playful buzz. Also, these hard candies work very well for travel as they can be transported without any refrigeration. As each gem only contains 5mg of THC, one can start small and then add additional gems until one achieves the high that suits one’s body and soul.
Currently, Drip Sweets can be found in 25 stores in Oregon with plans to expand into Washington State and then California.
