I’m sure you have April 20th marked on your calendar this year but what about April 2nd? Seems like any other arbitrary day on the calendar, but let me assure you, it’s not. April 2nd of every year just so happens to be National Peanut Butter and Jelly Day in the United States. Just as one would assume, you celebrate Peanut Butter and Jelly Day by slathering up a couple slices of your favorite bread with classic peanut butter along with the jelly of your choice. This April 2nd, however, I’ve got a little suggestion to amp up your celebratory PB&J. Turtle Butter (I swear not a filthy euphemism) is a brand new marijuana-infused edible producer that has gone from a relative unknown to become a valued product on every dispensaries shelf. Lucky Turtle among other products produces marijuana-infused peanut butter coconut spread which is as scrumptious as it is natural. The fun doesn’t stop at marijuana-infused peanut butter. Turtle Butter also offers everything from almond butter and honey, to marijuana-infused extra virgin coconut oil. For the sake of not writing a small novel I decided to focus mostly on the Lucky Turtle Turtle Butter Peanut Butter Coconut Spread, but I’ll add in a mini-review on the almond butter and the coconut oil which I’ve tried as well.
If you want to snag yourself a little bit of extra nutty marijuana-infused peanut butter from Lucky Turtle, swing by Emerald Fields in Manitou Springs or Glendale, Colorado Today. Lucky Turtle started out at Emerald Fields as one of their very first featured vendors of the month. Lucky Turtle Turtle Butter has now moved on to become a staple on the shelves at Emerald Fields. Whether you’re picking up your celebratory PB&J Day spread or are exploring some of Turtle Butter’s other options like their amazing THC-infused coconut oil or honey you can expect to always find it all on the shelves at Emerald Fields.

Turtle Butter Peanut Butter Coconut Spread :: Appearance | Smell:
Packets of infused Turtle Butter products in hand, there was a feature that stood out to me about Turtle Butter before I even left the dispensary. Turtle Butter is all sealed in convenient little foil packets. That means that they are tamper resistant right in their standard packaging. That means no carry-out bags and products that are safer and can’t be opened by children. As per instructions I kneaded the packet of Turtle Butter Peanut Butter Coconut Spread a spell and with only a slight pang of remorse, I started my celebration of national peanut butter and jelly day a week early. Just as I had imagined, as soon as I cut open the top I was rewarded with the dense and delicious scent of fresh macerated legumes. Turtle Butter Peanut Butter Coconut Spread smelled delectable in that way that peanut butter always does. I’m no food expert, hell, I’d even be going out on a limb saying I’m a true weed expert, but I know when I’ve got some good peanut butter. I tried to get a whiff of the coconut that provided the emulsifier, but at least in the smell department, all I could whiff was fresh peanuts. I slathered up an extra thick slice of sourdough and loaded the other slice with some grape jelly I’d made last fall (thanks again dad’s grape vines). A word to those out there that over-peanut-butter their PB&J, I found the packet to be the perfect amount for a large slice of bread but I know many out there that would find one packet to be a paltry amount. Grapes and peanuts now joined as one, I was armed with a mighty good looking PB&J.
Turtle Butter Peanut Butter Coconut Spread :: Taste | Effect:
I went in for my first bite. Delicious! Something about the coconut in the process mixed with the extra tart concord grapes from my jelly created an amalgam of pure bliss in my mouth. While there was no denying that this was a peanut butter and jelly sandwich I was eating, there was something very unique and rich in the flavor. I credit the coconuts that I wasn’t able to smell as being a prime factor in the added richness in the flavor of my PB&J. Turtle Butter Peanut Butter Coconut Spread has got a flavor that really hits the spot. As a relative lightweight when it comes to edibles I knew that the ten milligrams of THC were going to probably kick in at some point. One thing that makes Turtle Butter Peanut Butter Coconut Spread unique is the ten milligrams of CBD that are in there as well. About an hour after eating my delicious marijuana-infused PB&J I did start to feel a buzz, but that took a side seat next to the CBD effects I was feeling. It felt vaguely reminiscent to a light painkiller. The general mellowness that I felt from my Turtle Butter Peanut Butter Coconut Spread was quite delightful, but it also did instill a pretty strong desire to nap. I fought my temptation and instead started prepping for my dinner. Fresh pesto made with Turtle Butter Coconut Oil.
Turtle Butter Extra Virgin Olive Oil & Almond Butter:
I would be remiss in my duty if I didn’t mention a couple words about Lucky Turtle’s marijuana-infused almond butter and coconut oil. While I’ll admit that I’m not the biggest fan of almond butter, Turtle Butter from as best I could tell did an admirable job infusing their almond butter with marijuana goodness. I was also able to pick up a hint of marijuana flavor in the almond butter that I wasn’t necessarily able to detect in the peanut butter, but in my books, that’s hardly an unwelcome flavor. The coconut oil I had big plans for. I procured myself 3 packets of Turtle Butter Coconut Oil and after I mixed them with some olive oil, garlic, pine nuts, and parmesan I was left with some pesto that was absolutely to die for! If you like pesto or can think of a good application for cold-pressed, unrefined, extra virgin coconut oil then you’ve got to check out a pouch of Turtle Butter Coconut Oil.
Well, I’ve got to say Lucky Turtle has made a believer out of me. Not only were all the products I sampled scrumptious, but they also did pack enough THC to give me a nice weedy kick. It’s especially nice to know that these little Lucky Turtle Turtle Butters are ready to go and easy to store and carry. Lucky Turtle recommends that if you’re taking your turtle butter on the go you can cut a tiny slice along the side of the package and, when the time is right, use the cut to rip into your Turtle Buttery goodness. If you’ve been looking for the right way to celebrate national peanut butter and jelly day or if you’re just looking for a peanut butter sandwich that will really melt you into the couch at the end of the evening, Lucky Turtle has you (and your bread) covered with a marijuana-infused spread for any occasion.
