Since childhood, I have had a deep curiosity and respect for Egyptian deities and myths. From the famous sun god Ra to the underworld god Anubis, the deep history behind each of the Egyptian deities continues to impress and inspire those who study these deities. How does that relate to today’s review, you ask? Today we will be reviewing the strawberry and lemon delta-8 THC gummies by Hathor CBD. In Egyptian mythology, Hathor means “the legacy of Horus” and was the goddess of heaven, love, women and fertility.
While I’d love to go into a rambling history of how Hathor, Horus, and Ra are related, I came here to read about the powerful Delta-8 THC gum and that’s exactly what you’ll get! If you’re new to Delta-8 THC and not quite sure what to expect, that’s okay. We’ll take a brief overview of this wonderful cannabis, learn about the brand information and product packaging, and finally, an in-depth review of this particular Delta-8 THC gummy. Let’s get started!
Delta-8 THC: A Very Brief Overview
Delta-8 THC has been around for decades, but only recently has it started to gain traction with those who have tried and resented the highs of traditional marijuana. The elevated level that comes with Delta-8 THC provides both an elevated mind and body, yet allows the user to remain clear and in control. This is particularly appealing to those who suffer from the extreme paranoia and anxiety that comes with a Delta-9 THC high, or for those looking for a smoother high. For those who are curious about the effects of Delta-8 THC and more information about this unique cannabinoid, feel free to browse some of our previous articles like How does Delta-8 THC affect ECSAnd What it’s like to use Delta-8 THC the first timeAnd Guide to Delta-8 THC Products on the MarketAnd And Simple guide how to make Delta-8 THC.
If you are already familiar with Delta-8 THC, keep in mind that you should always consume Delta-8 THC in small doses until you are comfortable with how your body reacts. You should never drive or operate machinery under the influence of elevated Delta-8 THC and avoid taking very high doses. Some of the side effects of Delta-8 THC include drowsiness, dry mouth, drowsiness, and increased appetite. Too much Delta-8 THC can lead to extreme drowsiness, some paranoia, and other mild side effects depending on several factors that vary by user (weight, previous exposure to THC, BMI, age, etc.). Fondly referred to as the “light” version of weed, this potent cannabis is legal in many states due to its low THC content (less than 0.3%), but always make sure that cannabis is legal for use in your state before purchasing and consuming it.
There were so many unique features about the Hathor CBD website that it’s hard to get started! I’ve seen a lot of new and exciting ideas that you don’t usually see on the Delta-8 THC or CBD websites. Once you log in to the company website, a bold banner that encourages potential customers to become a member for free! I’ve seen sites that encourage subscription services and bulk purchases, but never a membership program. You can register as a regular customer or wholesaler, which is an excellent option if you are a business owner looking for high quality Delta-8 THC or CBD products. There was also a competitions and giveaways tab, where the site offers year-round promotions for specific products.
Speaking of products, Hathor CBD sells CBD and Delta-8 THC products, which you can swap to offer one or the other. The CBD division included topicals, pre-rolls, and flowers, while the Delta-8 THC division showcased their premium line of popular products like tinctures, foods, and softgels. There were also many unique products they offered, such as asteroids, moon rocks, and flavor cartridges. The site had clear images of both the product and its packaging, as well as a detailed description of each product. I was impressed to see that every product has dozens of reviews from certified customers, allowing potential customers to read others’ thoughts before making a purchase.
Strawberry gummies and lemonade are one of six flavors offered by Hathor CBD. The gum traditionally sells for $19.99, but there was currently a sale going on that brought the price down to $13.50. I didn’t see any packages or subscription prices, but $13.50 seemed a very reasonable price for a pack of ten gummies, each package coming with 300mg of Delta-8 THC. I’ll go over product and cannabis packaging information in this review, but for now, I’d like to dive first into the full review of this interesting chewing gum.
Delta-8 THC Strawberry Lemonade Gummies Product Review
I was confused when I first saw the packaging of this gum. The bag was very small, but the packaging says there are 10 candy bars inside. She tore the resealable bag and looked inside curiously. According to his claim, there were already 10 candy bars inside… very, very small chewing gums. I shook one of the gums and noticed that it was shaped like an upright gum bear, the size of Half My thumbnail (yes I have already scaled). The little gum had a hard but still spongy texture (like traditional gum) and was completely covered in sugar crystals. Since the gum itself barely had any smell, I held the pack up to my nose and detected a slight strawberry scent.
Once the initial examination was over, I inserted the little candy into my mouth. My initial judgment on the texture of the gum was confirmed when I started chewing: a little rough but still chewy. But my biggest shocker was the taste. With a description like Strawberry Lemonade, I was really looking forward to the comforting taste of sweet strawberry with a light lemon zing. The initial flavor was really strawberry, but the bitterness of hemp quickly overpowered the strawberry or lemonade flavor I tried to discover further. My taste buds were overwhelmed with the strong cannabis flavor and I noticed a smooth coating that quickly covered my teeth and tongue. There were some hard bits that got stuck in my back teeth and I also noticed a slight burning sensation in the back of my throat after I swallowed. I definitely recommend drinking water or brushing your teeth once you are done chewing and swallowing. The recommended dose is half a gum, which is impressive once you see how small the gum actually is. You’ve eaten a whole gum, but feel free to take a small dose until you feel comfortable with how your body reacts to Delta-8 THC.
I started feeling the effects of the gum just 30 minutes after I ate the gum, which was a pleasant surprise because the gum can take anywhere from half an hour to two hours to fully kick in. My eyes burned a bit and my eyelids felt heavy, my mouth felt a little cottony, but those were the only side effects. I enjoyed a heightened sense of touch as well as a deep sense of relaxation, immersed in a full mind and body. The peak reached its climax after about an hour, and I enjoyed the blissful orgasm until I fell asleep.
Since there is no cannabinoid regulated by the Food and Drug Administration, independent lab testing is necessary to confirm that a hemp-based product contains exactly what the company claims. Independent third-party lab tests are expensive and time consuming, which means that any CBD or Delta-8 THC that the company makes is highly dedicated to quality for its customers. These non-affiliated laboratories painstakingly test every product and confirm ingredients without bias, thus delivering honest and accurate results. Hathor CBD proudly displays COA results in a tab at the top of the page. There was also a QR code on the front of the package that you can scan which will take you directly to the COA page. I appreciate that the results were on both the packaging and the website, which means that a regular browser and a curious customer can view these results. Some companies have test results for each individual product, but it appears that Hathor CBD only provides cannabis profile results from their syringes and their moon rocks. I would have liked to see the results of each product, but I understand that these tests are very expensive and that the profile of cannabis is the same as that used in each product. The About Us tab encourages their customers to reach out with any questions or concerns, so if you would like to learn more about and test Hathor products, feel free to reach out to them directly.
There hasn’t been much information readily available about the type of cannabis used or the extraction process, but the company states that none of their products include a cutting agent due to their high quality. The 2018 Farm Bill states that Delta-8 THC products are legal for sale and distribution as long as the product contains 0.3% THC or less, making it readily available throughout the United States. The company encourages contacting them for answers to specific questions, so feel free to reach out if you’d like to learn more about the quality of hemp, its cultivation, cultivation, and extraction methods.
Hathor CBD appears to have gone through a rebranding of its product packaging, as the small bag I received is different from what is shown on the company’s website. The product packaging I received was a bag that was clear on the front, but backed with aluminum foil on the back. The dark blue label on the front displays the product’s flavor (Strawberry Lemonade), product type (Delta-8 THC gummies), company name, and cannabis content (30 mg per gummies for a total of 300 mg). On closer inspection, I realized that there were hieroglyphs on a dark blue background, adding a touch of exotic Egyptian charm that was interesting to look at.
The back of the packaging was very simple, there was only a large white label covering the back. A portion of the text detailing the nutrition facts servings, ingredient list, and suggested use (less than half a piece of gummy). The remaining half of the label dictated strict warnings to stay away from children, use only if recommended by a doctor, and strict age restrictions. For such a small package, this label has included everything you need to know about the product in order to deliver a safe and effective high.
I was really amazed at the power of this little gum, especially when the recommended dose is so small! While the taste was a little underwhelming, as I was really looking forward to a sweet and tangy flavour, the euphoria that followed was intense and incredibly pleasant. I wasn’t expecting to like this little bear shaped candy so much, but I can honestly say I was pleased with the results. I highly encourage you to try these little treasures, for novice and advanced consumers alike. Remember that you can always increase your dose over time! Keep in mind that although there is a strong cannabis flavor, the product starts to work quickly and provides an enjoyable mind and body that you will want to try again and again.
