The Best Low-Dose Halloween Treats (No Tricks!)
Halloween is coming, and whether you’re heading out as an angry witch for three days of costume parties (or maybe forever?) or curling up on the couch to watch Scream, here are some low-dose treats that will have you feelin’ good. Just don’t eat too much, no one wants to be paranoid—DID YOU CHECK THE CHILDREN?! And keep an eye on your munchies—don’t snarf the entire bowl of candy for the trick-or-treaters. Best of all, you’ll find all these products on the mymilligram page on Sava and can get them delivered! No need to fly out on your broomstick.
Nothing quite gets the party going like some California Dreamin’ soda—it delivers a light and fun buzz before heading out for parties, but is also great to unwind with and bring on some giggles at home. Whether you share a bottle (10mg per bottle), or do my ice cube trick, I’d say the pomegranate flavor or cranberry-apple are perfect for fall!
This brand-new, cannabis-infused popcorn is exactly what you’ll want to munch on while watching Scary Movie, and best of all, it’s single-serve, so you can enjoy it alllll to yourself, the entire bag. (Mine, all mine!) It comes in three versions: beginners can start with the CBD version, with 10mg of CBD, while the 1:1 bag has 3.9mg CBD and 4.3mg THC per bag. If you like a larger dose, there’s the 10mg THC bag, but that’s one microdosers will definitely want to share. Be sure you have a microwave (LOL) and you’ll want to shake the bag to disperse the sea salt after it’s all popped. The organic corn has great flavor and pops up nicely. Sustainably sourced organic palm oil gives it a lightly buttery flavor, with no detectable notes of cannabis. Read more on how to pop it properly in the description on Sava.
Mellow in name only, these cannabis-infused (~5mg) marshmallows can really bring the partay. They’re so good that I have a hard time just eating half (~2.5mg), but it’s where I recommend beginners start. It’s fall, so the brown-butter sage is the perfect festive flavor. These are fun to bring to parties and are perfect host/ess gifts. No trick, all treat!
I love the coffee bean Sparks before going out—and they’re so portable, you can bring them with you to re-up later and to share with your fellow ghouls and goddesses. They contain 3mg of THC per bean. Want something a little lighter and more chill? The Goji Berry Sparks (red box) are 2:1, with 2mg of CBD and 1mg of THC per berry. Both are made with delicious, single-origin chocolate. Great sprinkled on ice cream. And they sparkle!
Are you eyeing the trick-or-treaters’ loot with envy? You should have something sweet to snack on too! Satori’s salted chocolate-covered almonds come in at ~6mg and ~.6mg of THC per almond, so you can enjoy more than one and not worry about getting too high. The recommended serving is two almonds (so ~12mg of CBD and ~1.2mg of THC), but you can go up to four (2.4mg of THC) or even more, depending upon how much of a microdoser you are (or aren’t—and how much THC you enjoy).
The chocolate-covered wild strawberries have 3mg CBD and .3mg of THC per berry (basically a 10:1 ratio). The recommended serving is 3 berries, for ~9mg of CBD, and ~.9mg of THC. (You shouldn’t feel psychoactive effects from THC until around 2mg or greater, so there’s nothing to worry about here. All clear!)
Both of these treats are great on ice cream. They’ll also be really tasty to eat with the Potcorn! Just be sure to decide the dose you want, take them out of the bag, and then put the bag away—don’t mindlessly snack on them right out of the bag. (Ask me how I know not to do this.)
