Chocolatey chews are what you typically find when looking for a low-dose infused candy here in Colorado. While that’s fantastic for those who are in the mood for cocoa, the sweet and sour taffy lovers have been left out to dry with a lackluster line of available options.
Seven-Ten Creations, based out of Denver, CO, is an edibles manufacturer that is seeking to change the landscape for the low dosage enthusiast with their new line of THC-infused fruit candies: Happy Chews. Available in 10mg packages with 5mg per chew, Happy Chews offers a fresh new take on the low-dosage edible with their delicious fruit taffy candies. Each package contains two flavors: citrus and mixed berry.

Happy Chews are infused with hash oil, making them a perfect option for consumers who want a citrus and berry burst of flavor without the aftertaste that other infusions can leave on the palate. The orange citrus chew is tart with a tangerine twist, while the profile on the red mixed berry chewis sweeter with hints of cherry and strawberries.
As far as texture, the chews are reminiscent of a mix between a fluffy taffy and a harder, more enduring chew. The consistency is a happy medium for consumers looking for a good pull without losing a crown in the process. It’s rare to find a 5mg portioned candy as hearty as what Happy Chews offers, as each piece can easily be enjoyed in several bites.
I took the equivalent of 30 mg (six candies) when I tested them and felt very little in terms of effects. This is a very, very low dose candy, which is a great option for first-time cannabis users who are looking for a very mellow, very low-dose introduction. Effects to a new user at this dose would be subtle and should feel like a soft warming sensation with euphoric undertones.
The team over at Seven-Ten Creations is on to something with Happy Chews, offering the low dosage consumer a flavor-packed punch in a hearty-sized 10mg portion package. Right now you can find these tasty citrus and mixed berry treats in Denver, Pueblo, Bailey, and Fort Collins, with new flavors and locations coming in the near future.
For those looking for a slightly heavier kick in the THC department, you’ll be pleased to hear that Happy Chews will be releasing a 100mg pack later this year. Keep an eye out for Seven-Ten Creations at your next dispensary visit and you’ll find yourself in the company of one seriously flavorful chew in a delightfully manageable dose.
