Kin Slips is a brand that definitely sets themselves apart from the rest. Not only are their products extremely unique, effective, and consistent, but they come in sleek, eye-catching and user-friendly packaging. Kin Slips offers cannabis sublinguals, which are small strips that dissolve when placed under your tongue. Since the cannabis is being absorbed sublingually, it hits your bloodstream much quicker, and you feel the effects within 15-20 minutes. This fact alone sets Kin Slips apart from the pack, especially compared to traditional ingestible edibles like gummies or chocolate that take 1-2 hours to take effect, because they must be digested and then processed by the liver.
In addition to the quick absorption time from this method, sublinguals are one of the most consistent vehicles for cannabis. Because cannabis-infused edibles like gummies and chocolates need to be digested, their effects can be quite inconsistent, even with multiple uses from the same person. That’s because there are so many factors that can affect digestion, including what you’ve eaten that day, and more.
Kin Slips pricing varies across their array of products, ranging anywhere from $5.80 to $8.40 per dose. I did appreciate that their product most conducive to everyday use – the “Park Life” blend – was less expensive than the others. The more expensive offerings are good for special occasions, and well worth the money, in my opinion.
Each Kin Slips product is intended for a certain purpose, and the brand recommends certain types of activities for each. I found each intended effect to be quite accurate, and that the product could be incorporated for a wide variety of uses. I enjoyed the feeling of using a sublingual, because it felt like my digestive system didn’t have to work as hard as when I’ve eaten edibles. The flavor of each strip is fairly mild, and only lasts under your tongue for a few seconds before it’s dissolved. The product reminds me of a sophisticated, medicinal Listerine Breath Strip.
If you have even the slightest bit falling asleep at night, I highly recommend the “Shut Eye” Sublinguals for Sleep & Serenity. Sometimes it takes a bit of tossing and turning for me to drift off into peaceful sleep, but I fell asleep right as I hit the pillow after taking the sublingual just 15 minutes before.
Cloud Buster: Cannabis Sublingual for Creativity & Focus
Kin Slips’ “Cloud Buster” sublingual is intended to elicit creativity and focus. Since the product is a sublingual, it only takes 15-20 minutes to take effect. That means it’s much easier to find the perfect dose for you than if this product was an ingestible. At $8.00 per dose, the high is extremely consistent. Each serving contains 10mg THC and less than 2mg CBD for dose, so If you are newer to cannabis, you could likely cut one of these trips in half and still feel the desired effects.
Kin Slips sublinguals are very efficient, high tech and consistent. Their “Cloud Buster” blend is perfect for when you need a little bit of a jumpstart or increased motivation, whether that’s going on a hike or meal prepping for the week. The sublingual strips have a minty and slightly earthy taste, much like a Listerine Strip that dissolves easily under the tongue.
Shut Eye: Cannabis Sublingual for Sleep & Serenity
Kin Slips’ “Shut Eye” blend features the power cannabinoid duo for sleep: CBN and CBD, with 5mg of each per strip. The blend also contains a minimal amount of THC for entourage effect. This sleep strip is more effective than a lot of sleep products out there, due to the featured cannabinoids and quick absorption time. The brand recommends you take your strip 10-15 minutes before bed. This product in their line is the most expensive, at nearly $8.40 per dose. The packaging is portable, discreet, and great for travel.
This product is intended to help you put the worries of the day behind you and drift off into sweet sleep! The CBN greatly contributes to this, and I certainly enjoyed the effects of this product. Not only did it take me very little time to fall asleep, but I also stayed asleep throughout the night. The “Shut Eye” blend flavor notes are reminiscent of mint and lavender, and reminds me of drinking a nice cup of tea before bed. Each strip is packaged individually, perfect for portability and discretion.
Park Life: Cannabis Sublingual for Comfort & Relief
This product is very sophisticated, effective, and consistent compared to other brands, especially for a CBD-rich product. Kin Slips “Park Life” blend features 10mg CBD and 1mg THC per serving, intended to ground you and provide relief throughout the day. The product can be consumed any time of day since it likely will not provide psychoactive results, and is the least expensive in Kin Slips’ line which is great since it’s the most conducive to everyday use.
The Park Life blend is good for pretty much any occasion, from curing the Sunday Scaries to getting you calm and focused to take on practically anything. This product is quickly absorbed like the others, but is mostly CBD so it’s hard to pinpoint the exact moment it takes effect. However, 30 minutes into the whole deal and I definitely felt calm and relieved. The flavor is mild and fruity with hints of mango and turmeric, and overall very pleasing. Sublinguals take almost zero effort yet are some of the most effective cannabis medicine out there!
