There really is nothing like a good marijuana edible, and High Above Seattle would like to start reviewing the ever growing recreational edible market. This week we bring you Db3‘s ZootsRocks Lemongrass, “premium cannabis infused nuggets”.
Love the name, anything that uses the phrase nugget instantly has me hooked… it’s such a funny word! Pass me a nugget.
Zoots edibles are a product of Db3, a Seattle based producer/processor of premium marijuana infused blends. Db3 are at the forefront of the recreational edible market, offering (at the moment) four consumable products: brownie bites, energy drink shot, mixable drops (think MiO), and of course the candy nuggets.
These products are featured across multiple recreational stores in Seattle, and throughout Washington state. However, these ZootRocks were obtained from good ol’ Uncle Ike’s Pot Shop in the Central District. For additional retailers, Zoots has a great “store finder” feature over at their sleek website zootology.com – it really is important to have an internet presence, and Db3 have clearly put some TLC into their website.
ZootRocks come in a tin, much like a breath mint. The tin is adorned with some fantastic artwork, and a choice of simplicity over complexity in terms of information provided. Much like their website, there is a focus on going out into nature and consuming weed edibles (I can dig it). We’ve got a lovely mountain view behind the Zoots logo, and on the website are various images of folks day hiking in scenic vistas (while, presumably, stoned off their ass).
It’s inspiring to see how the average perception of the stoner has gone from couch potato, to avid outdoorsman. I love it.
Here is a photo detailing the specifics on the back of the tin:
ZootRocks’ lemongrass nuggets are about the width of a fingertip, and they’ve been pressed into shapes that are somewhat akin to a star or diamond.
As the name suggests, these little morsels taste of lemongrass – and aren’t super sugary. The bon bon’s take awhile to dissolve so just roll with it, savor the flavor. Speaking of such things, there are actually two flavors of ZootRocks (the other being chili cinnamon fire) – it’s nice to have variety.
When getting high with ZootRocks’ nuggets, you’ve got remember that patience is a virtue. This author popped one and went about the day as normal, surely within under an hour I was baked without the baking. The high is like the habanero, a slow burn that has a lasting peak – creeping up, and eventually becoming undeniable.
The duration of the high is lengthy, as is the case with most edibles. One could understand why taking a hike is advertised, simply because you’ll be high the whole time. It’s not recommended to take more than one ZootRock in a sitting, probably because you’ll be on par with a wino.
Db3 are a badass local producer, and we should all support them by buying more edibles – like now. Go on out to your local recreational marijuana shop and tell ’em “bring on the zoots!” (or, y’know, say it normally – whichever you prefer.)
