Mr. Moxey’s is a highly respected cannabis brand that puts an emphasis on joining overall wellness with cannabis through the use of long forgotten herbs and spices, which they formally call “Herbal Allies.” Founded by Mr. Moxey himself, a.k.a. Tim from England, Mr. Moxey’s Mints started in Seattle and then expanded to other legal states in the Pacific Northwest and West Coast. The company puts the utmost importance on high quality ingredients and creating a product that can be incorporated into daily life versus solely enjoying recreationally. Their products are a little on the expensive side, especially if they become a part of daily life, as recommended.
Mr. Moxey’s makes two lines of mints – one that includes THC and one that is hemp-based, in addition to a few external cannabis balms. There are a few other brands out there that make cannabis mints, but none that feature the magic of herbal medicine. These herbs only enhance the benefits of cannabis, and therefore set this brand apart from the pack.
It’s no surprise that Mr. Moxey’s knocks it out of the park with their line of mints tailored for everyday use. Having the product in mint form adds a huge convenience factor; not to mention, the use of strong flavors like peppermint and cinnamon eliminate most tastes of cannabis, which can be unpleasant when detected. The product comes in a tin very reminiscent of an Altoid can, but with far more trendy packaging. The mints take anywhere from 30-90 minutes to take effect, much like your traditional edible. Each flavor of mint is full spectrum and includes the best of both THC and CBD.
The 5:1 “Calm” Mints are the real deal. Easy concealed in a trendy tin for on-the-go use, this product’s CBD to THC ratio makes it perfect for a little reminder to stay calm and focused at any point of the day.
Mr. Moxey’s Calm Peppermint Mints (5:1)
Mr. Moxey’s 5:1 Peppermint Mints are meant to have a “Calming” effect, which is important to note since the company also makes “Energized” and “Calm” mints of the same flavor. The product is very easy-to-use and discreet, while also being extremely tasty and effective. Each tin has 20 servings, with 5mg CBD and 1mg THC per mint. Depending on how recently and how much you’ve eaten, this product can take anywhere from 30-60 minutes to take full effect. Luckily, most Mr. Moxey’s products are microdoses, so there won’t be any psychoactive surprises 45 minutes into your meeting.
These 5:1 mints are bursting with fresh flavor; they also contain special herbs ashwagandha, hawthorn, and lemon verbena to boost wellness. The mints look like your average peppermint, but I found the taste to be much more enjoyable and less bitter than an Altoid. I enjoyed the calm and focused effects I felt from the mints, which is likely attributed to the use of both sativa and indica strains in the formulation.
We all know a little indica can do the trick when it comes to allowing yourself to fully relax. This fact didn’t slip past Mr. Moxey’s, who used indica strains, along with cinnamon to create a product designed to get yourself in the mood to unwind. This product also features chamomile to reduce anxiety and California poppy to release tension. Just like the other flavors, these THC-heavy mints take anywhere from 30-60 minutes to feel the full effect. Each dose costs $1.65, which is decent, but could get expensive if you plan on using this product every day.
This product is the perfect after dinner mint to get you into the mindset of unwinding and getting ready for bed. You might find the cinnamon flavor to be a little too subtle, and I also could taste a bit of cannabis with this flavor, but it was okay and not too offputting. The effects are enjoyable and live up to their intent – just maybe stick to nighttime consumption since each dose contains 5mg THC.
Mr. Moxey’s “Balance” Mints feature a 1:1 ratio of THC to CBD. Each mint/serving has 5mg of both cannabinoids, and uses both indica and sativa strains for an “uplifting and centering” effect. This formulation features Gingko leaf to promote clarity and Siberian Ginseng to improve stamina. The Balance mints are about $15 more expensive than their counterparts, likely due to the high quality, 1:1 ratio. There’s no doubt about the quality of the product, but $2.25 per mint feels a little steep.
I always favor products that showcase the full spectrum of benefits from the cannabis plant, and these 1:1 Balance Peppermints are no exception. The powerful ratio and invigorating minty flavor gave me a feeling of relaxation and peace, while also staying alert and focused on the task at hand. If you are newer to cannabis or THC, I recommend these mints for nighttime use. However, if you are more experienced, these mints serve as the perfect midday pick-me-up.
