Cannabis lollipops. - February 21st 2009, 04:11 PM

What do they actually do, if anything? Are they supposed to give you the feeling of being stoned, or just taste like hash? Because I'm eating one now that I bought in London, and so far it seems like neither. I asked the guy I bought them from what was in them, and he said I'd just have to taste them and see. (Dodge, I know..)
Personally I just believed they're apple flavoured lollipops that are associated with cannabis for profit reasons.

They in fact have no trace of THC in them, I read this on a fairly good source about three years ago when I had one in Glasgow, where the shop was selling them to over 18s only(probably as a disclaimer). I'll try and see if I can find it, but I have no idea if I will. They did taste somewhat like cannabis, but as you said, it was more apple-y than anything.

As you said, its just a marketing thing, they don't actually contain any of the active ingredient of cannabis.

Some of them like the flavored ones you'd find in Spencer's are just flavored like pot. If marijuana was legal in the spot you bought the lollipop, I think it probably has weed in it otherwise it doesn't do anything. You can cook pot with pretty much anything as long as it's prepared the right way.

I doubt they'd be allowed to be sold if they got you high. So it will probably be supposed to taste like cannabis.
Frankly, I wouldn't want a lollipop that tasted like that mind you

As soon as a read the title for this thread I thought "camden" lol.

I think the question has pretty much been answered though.
To answer what Samantha said... nope it is not legal in camden (its just an area of london)

Also I agree with what Janos said, it is more of a marketing thing than anything.

Ayye, it wouldn't be legal anywhere in the UK if it contained any of the active ingredient of cannabis. I suspect the shop where I got them from only labelled them 18 or over in order to attract attention to them..

Re: Cannabis lollipops. - February 21st 2009, 09:57 PM

I dont think Ive seen them labelled 18 or anything.
They sell them to anyone with no worry of age.

I know because they tricked me when I was 14 and sucked me in lol.
Anyway they never said or asked anything about age nothing was written there either.
It was years and years ago now but not much has changed in camden really.
Well only one thing but thats irrellevent I suppose.

As they are sold so openly if they did contain anything then it would have been stopped.
Also if they did and they werent stopped then Im sure the shops would have moved on to other edible items such as cakes.

Yeah I agree... oh, for silly marketing ploys. Frankly, I was disappointed in my cannabis lollipops. Won't be spending 4.something or whatever 2 is on three apple-flavoured lollipops again....not even three; two, because one seems to have mysteriously disappeared somewhere between Camden, my suitcase, and Dublin.

I'm not sure how much they were each, maybe about 1.05? It was three for 2 anyway. Yeah I got some lovely things in Camden...I fed my earring addiction..but I'm scared this thread will turn too chatty if I get into full chat-mode.
