Review | Stillwater Ripple 20:1 Relief Dissolvable
One of the more interesting CBD/THC consumables on the market is made by a company called Stillwater. Unlike many making candies, pills, or tinctures, Stillwater has found a way to take the cannabinoids and put them into a dissolvable powder. The powder is said to be odorless, tasteless, and precisely dosed – so that you can put it in anything, even pasta sauce (as our budtender recommended).
We wanted to dig a little deeper into the ingredients and background of Stillwater.
Let’s learn about Stillwater the company a little bit. Stillwater was said to start when the Founder’s Grandmother was ill with Parkinson’s and did not want to smoke and had a bad experience with edibles. The founder developed Ripple to provide an accurate dose for his grandmother. Touching story.
I can’t find anything overtly bad to say about the company, which is always a good sign.
“Ripple Dissolvables are single-serve powder packets filled with perfectly precise portions of our odorless, flavorless, calorie-free dissolvable THC + CBD. From protein shakes to salad dressings, put Ripple in your water bottles, juices, soups, tacos, and more. With Ripple, there are no unpleasant oil slicks or unwelcome “grassy” flavors, just reliable, consistent, fast-acting effects.”
RIPPLE SC (sorbitol, modified food starch, organic coconut oil, cannabinoid distillates)
Nothing scary about the ingredients. Vegan, Gluten-Free, Non-GMO, Sugar Free, Keto.
Sourcing: I had to reach out to Stillwater to find out where they source ingredients and if they source organic or clean green cannabis. Here is their statement:
“All inbound cannabis distillate used in Stillwater’s products complies with state regulations for contaminant testing such as microbials, residual solvents, pesticides, and soon heavy metals.
We do not provide COAs on contaminant tasting per lot of our retail product for several reasons:
- METRC houses all of the testing data for both our inbound goods and finished retail product; it would be cumbersome and unnecessary to provide COAs
- The MED’s option for process validation on non-potency test types eliminate
s the need for us to perform certain types of contaminant testing on each lot, so the data is not always available
None of our ingredients for any of our products are organic, and we are not clean green certified. We source our cannabis from a select group of high quality approved suppliers and growers. Other ingredients are sourced from reputable companies that provide COAs for the lots we purchase.”
I’m not in love with the fact that nothing is organic, but there doesn’t seem to be anything dangerous about consuming their product.
Product in Review: Ripple 20:1 Relief – 10mg CBD to .5mg THC
Each container comes with 10 packets of Relief powder. They are tiny making them quite convenient to bring anywhere. I leave a few in my purse for on-the-go situations. There isn’t much to explain – rip open the small packet and pour into any liquid and it dissolves immediately.
Taste: The product claims to be odorless and tasteless. The first packet I tried I dumped into flavored coconut water and the product did not seem to change the taste whatsoever. There is definitely no smell (though I do have a notoriously bad sense of smell). I wanted to test the tasteless claim in something that is mostly tasteless – water. When put into water the Ripple does have a slightly chemically taste. I would not suggest consuming it this way.
Experience: The Relief product has an extremely low THC content at .5mgs – so there isn’t much of a ‘high’ to this product at all. But I found myself enjoying these in my morning coffee as a way to stay level and anxiety-free throughout the day. It’s hard to say, but after a few days of use, I did feel as if my mood was elevated.
I appreciate that these are sugar and calorie-free – I’m always trying to make improvements on my diet/lifestyle and eating a bunch of Candy isn’t always ideal.
They do have a few more products that will get you noticeably high – the Pure 10 (10mgs THC) and the balanced 5 (5mg THC 5mg CBD).
Summary: I would say that if you are looking to microdose – this is a great option. It’s convenient and discreet – can infuse just about anything from a cocktail, to coffee, to oatmeal or soup! The ingredients are safe enough, and I experienced only good effects – though I generally would lean towards a product that is made with organic ingredients instead.
Other products: We have also reviewed their CBD coffee – love. And the company has other products if you are looking for a bit more of an enhanced high: Pure 10 (10mgs THC), and Balanced (5mg THC to 5mg CBD).
