With the growing normalization of cannabis used by adults, one finds the rise of cannabis and hemp confections with a gourmet flair. Here one finds chocolatiers joining forces with farmers and growers like East Fork Cultivars and Prūf Cultivar to craft cannabis chocolates manufactured with the same ethos one finds when savoring other organic natural food products. Also, all these products are packaged with single servings easily identified for ease of dosing.
Here’s a small selection of some of the cannabis infused chocolates hitting the market.
Grön Chocolates offers a selection of chocolate bars, bites, and bits available in CBD-dominant or 1:1 (THC:CBD) options. Their nine chocolate bars include a mix of offerings ranging from dark chocolate and sea salt to milk chocolate with peanut butter and pretzels, as well as bits and bites for those seeking a single serving treat. Also, they have a CBD only line consisting of chocolate bars, CBC skin care products, tinctures, and bite-size creations that can be sampled at their Portland based CBD Café, purchased from select grocery stores, or ordered online.
Those looking for individual gourmet chocolate treats containing 10mg THC per serving should check out Honu‘s individually wrapped edibles. Choose from their wide range of THC-infused options like their award-winning chocolate turtles and coconut snowballs available in Washington State dispensaries or their line of CBD edibles that can be shipped worldwide.
Leif Goods has expanded their gourmet offerings of cannabis confections by offering organic, fair trade, non-GMO CBD chocolate bars made with full spectrum hemp. These bars come in twelve even sections per bar. Choose from their mint hibiscus chocolate or orange ginger chocolate bar for a deep fuddy sensation or their mocha crunch chocolate bar for more of a crispy coffee infused bite. These bars can be ordered online on their Greater Goods website or from at select stores that are listed on their website.
Those who like to savor strain-specific chocolates should check out Peak Extracts’ six unique color-coded strain-specific packages. As the desired effects are listed on the package, consumers can pick the type of experience they wish to have without needing an in-depth knowledge of particular cannabis strains.
Serra offers those living in Oregon a singular cannabis and chocolate experience. Through their partnerships with Stumptown Coffee Roasters, Woodblock Chocolate, and Jacobsen Salt Co, they serve up a variety of THC and CBD options, thus giving consumers a range of options tailored to their individual preferences. Their 50mg bars feature 10 individual servings per package. In 2019, Serra will be returning to Feast Portland where they had the distinction last year of being the first cannabis sponsor of a major food festival.
