I tested out the Cannadips Limited Edition pouches back in November, something I was excited to try as I had previously tested the original pouches back a year ago and found the subject fascinating.
Well now I’m trying out their Go Fuel collection, ideal if you prefer to take them in the morning rather than the evening to help you with the day ahead.
What Is In The Go Fuel Collection?
There are two key ingredients to these pouches. The first is CBG (cannabigerol) rather than CBD (cannabidiol), a cannabinoid I’m a huge fan of. If you want to learn more, I have written a guide to CBG here.
This is an isolate, meaning no other cannabinoids were found on the lab report, they have isolated CBG through the extraction process, as is very common nowadays.
The second key ingredient is caffeine, to help perk you up and ready to take on all challenges. I’m a self-confessed coffee addict, so I can certainly admit I do love the boost from caffeine.
The other ingredients you will find are a proprietary coconut coir, sunflower oil, guarana extract, palm oil, glycerine, sugar, xanthan gum, monk fruit extract and natural flavours.
How Much Caffeine Do You Get?
Each pouch contains 25mg of caffeine, this was important for me to know, as I didn’t want to overload on the caffeine during testing, especially as I also had a coffee to hand.
I attempted to Google the quantity of caffeine in a coffee and the answer was beyond ambiguous, especially with Google’s rich snippet being supposedly incorrect. The answer seemed to be somewhere between 40-95mg.
Having said that, whether it’s a properly brewed coffee or an instant coffee will make a significant difference.
But back to the point, this meant it wasn’t too much caffeine, a nice little perk and boost, but it also means I can have a few throughout the day without worrying about going overboard. To be clear, most guides say you can have up to 400mg of caffeine in a day.
How Much Cannabigerol Do You Get?
The tin contains 150mg of CBG, with 15 pouches, meaning you get 10mg of CBG per pouch. The guidance on cannabigerol is a little more loose compared to cannabidiol.
The FSA doesn’t recommend going over 70mg of CBD in a day. While this is another cannabinoid altogether, so far the general guidance within the industry has been to follow the same levels, albeit this is far from set in stone at this point.
What Were The Flavours?
I had three to try out, which were mint, mocha and mango.
Starting off with the mango, you’ll never guess what this one tasted like? Mango, that’s right! It wasn’t too sweet which surprised me, not in a bad way, but I’m used to trying mango flavoured items and them being exceptionally sweet.
At this point I had held off long enough from the mocha, the one I was most excited to try out, so I went for it. The taste certainly resembled a mocha coffee, with it tasting like a high percentage dark chocolate.
The final one was like popping chewing gum into your mouth, so I had to keep reminding myself not to chew. Placing it under the tongue and allowing the saliva to extract the ingredients naturally, I am surprised to say that the mint was probably my favourite. It had a nice taste and I forgot it was in my mouth after a while, which allowed me to carry on focusing on my work.
I love the added caffeine and want more CBG in my life, but going by taste, I would state the limited edition range are certainly my favourites, with the Pancho’s Horchata, Blue Razz and Ice Cream Cake being particular preferences of mine. I can’t get enough of those!
Where Can I Purchase These From?
