REVIEW: Real One's Shatter Shots Bring Cannabis Tinctures into the SpotlightBonnie King Salem-News.com Cannabis De-Classified
Want a shot? How about a Shatter Shot? Cannabis to the rescue!
(SALEM, Ore.) - In a world where cannabis giants are springing up before our eyes, entrepreneur/innovator Real One has been rooted for many years, a homegrown product of the cannabis community.
This spring, a new line of products, Real One's Dab With Me Shatter Shots, join his official Pothead Music & Merchandise store, available at www.RealOne209.com.
Real One and the Baked Ladies have created these Shatter Shots, which are delectable cannabis drink additives. The recipe includes thinned medicated tincture, which contain all 80 of the essential cannabinoids, and therefore is specific to medical marijuana patients.
Intrigued, I had to find out what the buzz was about, so I've tried three flavors of Shatter Shots - not all at once.
A non-drinker for over 20 years, and cannabis patient for nearly that long, it is rare for me to find a non-alcoholic drink that suits my lifestyle. Living without alcohol isn’t a chore, but Cannabis is my preference, and it’s not always socially acceptable.
Drinkers don’t always tolerate smokers, but that doesn’t mean one should do without. Shatter Shots are a welcome answer, and a very tasty one indeed. Served over ice, it was a refreshing, thirst quenching choice. And the effects were wonderful, calming and relieving.
There are several flavors including Lemonade, Orange Cream, Green Apple, Grape, Watermelon, and Tooty Fruity. Each 50/50 (THC/CBD) bottle contains 3200 mgs, and the new Strawberry 100% CBD variety contains 3600 mgs.
The all-CBD product is the only one available to ship anywhere the United States. Before long, Shatter Shots should be available in all “legal” states.
Until then, California has several dispensaries where it is available. At this time, that includes the @cookieclinic209 in Stockton, Alpine in Sacramento, and #SnoLabs delivery service (Sacramento/Elk grove area), just to name a few.
A quality cannabis product is good to find. The medicinal uses are without question.
A reliable facebook follower said, “These are pretty strong, and I have an extremely high tolerance, but the CBD profile is amazing. It's almost stopped my seizures.”
Tinctures and tincture combinations are not new. Tinctures were the primary type of cannabis medicines until it was banned in 1937. Shatter Shots take tinctures to the next level, a new and improved product whose time has come.
A Shatter Shot bottle retails for $70-80 each, but they can last a very long time, depending on your usage.
So what is the dosage? As with all cannabis, it depends on the person and their tolerance. Start minimally, wait to determine the effects before taking more.
Like other concentrates and tinctures, you can opt to use it right out of the bottle. A patient may simply use a few drops, put it under your tongue to ensure the medicine is rapidly absorbed into the arterial system.
Or, to mix the whole bottle, it is suggested to pour it into a 2-liter of clear soda or seltzer water, then serve chilled in small cups. Save the unused product in the refrigerator.
Shatter Shot creator Brandon “Real One” Benefield was born and raised in Modesto, California, and began his music career in 1995.
A popular cannabis festival performer, Real One is a “Hemp Hop/Rapper”, and the crowds have loved him at hemp festivals and other energetic events for over a decade. He is a friend of many.
In 2012, Real One won the High Times Doobie Award for "Activist Artist of the Year", complete with a 2-page spread in the August 2012 issue of High Times Magazine. That, in addition to many other awards that have been received throughout the years.
Recently, Shatter Shots took the award for “Best overall medicinal value” at the City of Terps Cup. The first of many, no doubt.
It seems quite clear that Real One and his Shatter Shots will be all the buzz for a very long time, leading the charge for life, liberty and cannabis.
This weekend, Real One is appearing at the Umpqua Valley Hempfest in Oakland, Oregon. He performs on Saturday at 7 pm. There’s a rumor that he may be sharing some Shatter Shots. If I were you, I’d head his direction. In fact, I'll see you there.
Review roundup: Thumbs up! for Shatter Shots. A great choice for your medicinal health, body mind and soul. Now, let's get everyone legal.
