Kushy Punch Review: Gummies, Pure THC Oil & Vaporizer Pen
Nugg Team | April 27, 2016 | 3 Comments
Kushy Punch is the closest thing there is to an artisanal, California edibles brand. Organic, low-calorie, lab-tested, and hand-crafted in-state, Kushy Punch has gained a following for its highly potent, delicious, and butane-free gummies, which won “Best Edible Candy” at the Kush Expo in 2014.
Kushy Punch edibles derive their active ingredients through a whole-plant extraction process, avoiding harmful byproducts and distasteful residues. They’re among the top picks for patients looking for deep, long-lasting relaxation from physical discomfort—and of course they’re great for a host of medical conditions from chronic anxiety to nerve pain.
First-time users should be wary, however, of hitting too hard on their first time to bat; as the name suggests, these gummies pack a massive punch, and it’s easy to overdo it if you’re not careful to pace yourself.
Kushy Punch gummies are fast acting and highly potent, and every product is lab-tested using gas chromatography for dosage and uniformity (gas chromatography heats the sample to just above room temperature to expose latent gasses, exposing for the sample’s chemical contents without altering its quality and makeup).
After this initial testing process, Kushy Punch sends their edibles to a third party lab for additional analysis and quality verification.
For patients who can’t stand the same old experience day after day, they come in a wide variety of flavors (grape, raspberry, cherry, etc.) and strains (indica, sativa, hybrid, CBD, and T.K.O.).
Their edibles are only made using Soxhlet extracted cannabis, gelatin, tapioca syrup, organic cane sugar, natural flavor extract, natural food coloring, and vegetable oil. Plus, they don’t contain GMOs and are gluten, fat, peanut and dairy-free.
Patients report that the hybrid and sativa strains are useful for inspiring a bit of creativity, while the indica and CBD strains are better for physical relaxation. Many patients note that Kushy Punch products retain the light, tea-like flavors of their whole-leaf flower origins—although it doesn’t appear that anybody has found this to be a bad thing.
California Medical Dosage:
- 60mg packages containing 3 doses each (Indica, Sativa, Hybrid, and CBD; available in all flavors)
- 80mg packages with 4 doses each (Indica, Sativa, Hybrid, and CBD; available in all flavors)
- 200mg packages containing 10 doses each (T.K.O.; available in all flavors)
Beginners are recommended to try just ¼ or less of a bar for their first time, and wait 30 to 45 minutes before diving in for a second round (effects come on in 30 to 45 minutes, sometimes shorter if taking dosages of 20mg or more).
If you find your tolerance higher than expected, still remember to pace yourself. The effects of just ¼ of most bars will still last 1-2 hours, with first-time users reporting ¼ and ½ bar doses of the CBD, T.K.O, and indica varieties lasting up to 4 hours. With such a potent product, experienced users will still find ¼ to ½ bar of any strain an excellent starting place for their experience.

Depending on the strain and dose amount, Kushy Punch edibles can range in price from $10-15 for a 4-dose, 80mg bar, and $20-35 for a 10-dose, 200mg bar.

The two most unique strains are the T.K.O. and the CBD, both geared for experienced or high-resistance patients. The T.K.O. strain is, simply put, an all-out assault on physical and emotional stresses alike—more than 2x the dose means more than 2x the effect. They call it the T.K.O. (“Technical Knock Out”) for good reason.
Instead of the regular 60mg to 80mg, these squares come in packages containing 200mg of THC (that’s 50mg per ¼ square, five times the dose of the traditional MMJ gummy or lozenge). T.K.O. gummies are ideal for patients who need top-level pain relief, or for those who have exceptional tolerance to cannabinoids.
For patients with diabetes, the brand’s new CBD edibles are free of sugar and corn syrup and excellent for serving up a full helping of maximum pain relief and inflammation reduction without dysphoria or lethargy.
Users report that the sativa is particularly effective for chronic pain (particularly back and foot pain) and gives a nice jolt of energy, while indica users report a “pretty heavy and meditative high” that can last anywhere from 2 to 4 hours on a single dose (¼ bar).
First-time users with anxiety and depression rank both sativa, indica, and hybrid gummies as effective temporary relief of symptoms, particularly after work or before bed for a better night’s sleep.
Aside from medicated edible products, Kushy Punch recently introduced a super-concentrated form of the liquid THC oil it already uses to infuse its line of edibles. Known by the name “Pure THC Oil,” this product comes in a long, tubular package and contains a syringe with THC oil concentrate that can be applied to a dab rig, vape pen, or other method by which concentrated cannabis can be ingested.
Kushy Punch uses an extraction process known as Soxhlet extraction, which uses organic sugar cane alcohol and has zero residual solvents or impurities. Their pure THC oil has been reported by lab-tests as having THC levels between 80-90%, one of the highest concentrations we’ve seen out of any product on the market.
Aside from its Pure THC Oil, the company also produces concentrated oil in a variety of strains: Pineapple Express, Mango Dream, Strawberry Cough, and Sour Tangie.
As if manufacturing the liquid concentrate wasn’t enough, Kushy Punch takes their product line to a whole new level by offering cannabis patients their concentrates in the form of disposable vape pens.
Each disposable vape pen has 500mg of active cannabinoids, with a 1:3 CBD to THC ratio, and comes pre-charged to last until the pen is empty. The only caveat is the Kushy Punch vapes seem next to impossible to find, so perhaps their production has been limited as of late?
If you’re unable to find one at your local dispensary or through a simple search on Nugg, we recommend checking out the slew of other vape cartridges on the market.
