?I was halfway sold as soon as I saw the name on the label: Mango Lemonade. Add to that the pleasing rich yellow liquid inside, and the fact that it’s made in-house by A Green Cure Wellness Center in Shoreline, and I was ready to spring for the 10 bucks it costs to find out if this stuff is as good as it looks.Turns out it really is, especially if you’re a fan of the natural-tasting type of drink that doesn’t taste cloyingly sweet. Cane juice and coconut milk are the sources of sweetness in Mango Lemonade, and mango puree is responsible for its delicious tartness. Apparently, no lemons were harmed in the making of this product, or at least they aren’t listed in the ingredients.The medicinal magic of the drink comes from the addition of “keef,” as the label spells it; the word is also variously spelled as “kief” or “keif,” spelling’s not important. What’s important is that kief represents the most potent part of the marijuana plant, the THC-containing trichomes which are responsible for the fuzzy stickiness of cannabis flowers.There is a slight taste of cannabis in Mango Lemonade, which, as I never tire of pointing out, is a good thing as far as I’m concerned.One thing I absolutely love about the labels on all the house medibles at A Green Cure is they give you information on the approximate amount of cannabis in the product. Mango Lemonade, for example, contains 280 milligrams, according to the label.Other treats, such as their $5 medibles like cookies and 7-Layer Bars, typically contain .7 or .8 grams, thus offering more bang for the buck. But if you’re more into healthy fruit drinks than sweets, Mango Lemonade may be just your cup of THC.A Green Cure Wellness Center is at 145th and Aurora, 910 N. 145th Street in Shoreline; they’re open 11 to 8 except Saturdays and Sundays, open 11 to 5.
