1906 Midnight Chocolates Review – Casey Jones’ Experience
Taken: 1906 Midnight Chocolates, 9:45 pm after going to the climbing gym
1:1 CBD 5mg/THC 5mg and Chinese Herbs for sleep. According to the company, “MIDNIGHT is an all-natural sleep aid that is non habit-forming, without the drowsy hangover effects of other sleep aids. It contains a blend of single-strain indica cannabis and Corydalis, a traditional Chinese herb that improves ability to fall asleep and relieves body pain and tension.”
Dose: ½ Chocolate
Taste – Smooth dark chocolate, not too bitter, not too sweet. You can, however, taste that this is a weed candy. If you have ever had a weed candy you know that flavor. “Oh, this isn’t just chocolate!” Left me wanting more, which in this case isn’t always the best, as that can get you in trouble. But, I’d rather be eating something that I like as opposed to something that tastes like, well not the advertised Dark Chocolate label.
Review: When they say Midnight “This is a New High!” they ain’t kiddin’! I ate a ½ a chocolate (roughly a 2.5mg CBD/THC 1:1 dose) and got into bed to watch an episode of WestWorld. I kid you not, 10min into the episode, so let’s call it 10:15-30pm, my eyelids felt like they were tied to lead weights. Yeah, I was out. Sequoia, who normally is drooling on me and making some primordial “snoring” noises WAY before I am even tired, tapped me on the shoulder to say, “We can go to sleep if that chocolate is working…?” And oh was it.
Even after putting down my computer and slugging some water (thanks cottonmouth) I was zonked. Oh, yeah, we are in CO at 6000 ft above sea level, hydrate or die is a common response to anyone asking if you would like some water. So, I was out. I don’t remember having any dreams or stirring around when the dog inevitably hopped up in between us. Also, as I was falling asleep, I had this weird sensation that my whole body was being weighed down. Like all of a sudden, the physical mass of my body took on a greater density. Like when you take off in a plane and feel like you are being pushed into the seat and throw the floorboards. It was actually kind of cool and interesting, but in an odd way, relaxing.
Fast forward to about 11 pm-midnight. I just never checked my phone cause I felt like I was walking through olive oil as I got up to pee. I am stoned. I have those tell-tale signs that I am really high. As I lye back down in bed, I can feel my joints that are not in the “just-so” position for sleep. So I move and stir. I am trying to decide if this is a dream, or I really am at the crux of the next best stage of my life. This goes on for, maybe an hour. I feel that sinking feeling again, and poof. I am out. Fun fact here. I wear an activity monitor, i.e. a Fitbit Ionic smartwatch. Typically I wear it and use it to gather data to help train for bike races, or just to Strava a ride for bragging rights at the bar. I still have no rights to anything. But, it also maps out my sleep pattern. So, this is interesting as I can make some assumptions based on what my watch tells me my sleep looked like.
Think of this as the least exact sleep study on weed ever performed. But we have data so let’s take a look. (See image below) So you can see that there is a steep drop into deep sleep. Yup, that’s gonna be the, “I feel like jello, falling fast asleep” feeling. Boom, I am out. Then about 1-2 hours in, bam! I am awake. Then I stir for a while, the parts in red, and then that melting into the bed feeling again, and yup I’m out. It looks like I sleep pretty sound the rest of the night and as I am writing this, I have to say, I feel pretty good. Well rested, not groggy at all and overall I feel like I got a good night’s sleep. Also, I should note that I usually only sleep about 5-7 hours a night, 8 is rare and means I am drunk or I went on a big adventure that day. So, to get 9 hours of what appears to be good sleep on a Monday night. I am gonna chalk that up to a win. ::Insert ‘OK’ fingers emoji here::
Now to address the awake stage about 1-2 hours in. When talking with the budtender at Village Green Society (Boulder, CO Dispensary), he mentioned that this, the 1906 Midnight Chocolate, should only stay in my system for about 2-3 hours. So, I have to assume that I was knocked out Iron Mike Tyson style from the chocolate initially, and I had just gone climbing and drank a beer. So, naturally, I was tired. But when I had to get up to pee I realized, fuck me, I am stoned. Not being a huge stoner, I am sure my mind was playing the let’s go on multiple little tangents about everything happening in your life right now just to realize that I have no rational conclusion for why one foot is warmer than the other only to settle on, oh yeah I am stoned, before we fall back asleep.
So, I am gonna take this again. Not only cause it tastes awesome, but also because it worked. I am gonna give myself about a 1-2 hour window before I go to bed to see if that helps with waking up all funky high in the middle of the night. Overall I am a fan of these. If you, like I, am a light sleeper and/or just don’t sleep I would give these chocolates a recommendation. They work and they taste good. Maybe crack a bottle of wine, have a glass and eat a 1906 Midnight, could be the best night’s sleep you have had in a minute.
