Today, we are reviewing Deep Space Propulsion Cosmic Cherry Lime, which is a cannabis-infused beverage containing 10 mg of THC, 10 mg of CBG, and caffeine.
As per the label, we find this is noted as edible cannabis, non-alcoholic beverage. It uses natural flavors and colors. Supposedly, it is the equivalent of 5 grams of dried cannabis.
The packaging date of this product is noted as February 7, 2023, and we will review it in August 2023.
As per the container's nutritional information, this 335ml drink contains 100 calories. It also carries 23 grams of carbohydrates and a total of 22 grams of sugar, constituting 22% of the average daily value.
Interestingly, there's no specific caffeine quantity provided, but one of the listed ingredients is guayusa extract, known for its caffeine content. It's worth noting that on the ingredients list, the guayusa extract is positioned below the cannabis emulsion, indicating that it may be a lower constituent by mass. However, this still doesn't reveal the precise caffeine concentration within the drink.
The beverage initially appears slightly fizzy, but the fizz doesn't linger for an extended period.
Its flavor is reminiscent of syrupy cherry with a noticeable citric acid sour edge. While there isn't much of a lime presence, it does offer a dose of sugary goodness. This drink leans towards the heavier side rather than being truly refreshing.
In terms of mouthfeel, it has a slightly slippery texture. You might detect faint hints of cannabis flavour, but the olfactory response quickly masks it.
This product was intriguing to try, as I'm always interested in exploring new cannabis-infused beverages. Although I couldn't discern any noticeable effects from the CBG or caffeine, I found it to be an enjoyable product. I savoured it at home on a leisurely Saturday afternoon, but I suspect it might be even more enjoyable in an airport bar or when served at a restaurant.
