The next craze in cannabis products could come in the form of a minty mouth spray.
Smell The Truth is reporting that edibles maker Bhang Chocolate is launching a line of breath sprays in California dispensaries infused with either THC or CBD. The company claims the product is perfect for medical marijuana patients that cannot or do not want to smoke, but need fast-acting cannabinoid therapy.
According to the article, the Bhang THC 300 mg Crisp Mint Spray comes in a thin, metal tube with a press-down spray-top. You shake the bottle, spray your cheek a few times, and let the ingredients absorb through the mouth. Effects can start in as little as a few minutes. It tastes minty, sweet and is spiked with a bitter medicinal extract flavor.
Each spray gives out 2.5 mg of THC (one official dose of THC is 10 mg). Bhang uses CO2 extraction to isolate THC and infuse it into the mix of purified water glycerin, sweetener and peppermint.
Critics of medical marijuana are worried about the message that products like these would send to children and want to make the products subject to state approval. Washington requires state pre-approval for edibles. California does not.
