We Taste-Tested Five CBD Chocolates and It Was Extremely Relaxing
All sorts of cool and glowy people have been praising the ameliorative effects of CBD, which is said to calm anxiety, relax sore muscles, ease inflammation, bolster productivity, and stop acne. A semi-mystical host of a radio show I listen to swears on them for cramps; the most critical person in my book club uses them for an immediate calm. But I was only interested when it was offered to me in chocolate form.
You might think that eating CBD chocolates for the taste is like subscribing to The Economist for the pictures. While I’m always here for that gravitas and the deep content, I also love a frivolous and delicious delivery system, especially because the effects of CBD are subjective. If the CBD in these chocolates affected me, it was in a deeply subtle way. So it’s especially important that they taste unsubtly delicious.
A quick reminder that CBD is the grounding counterbalance to THC, which is the psychoactive element in weed that gets you high. In metaphor: THC is hosting the party, and CBD is driving you there. Some legal(ish) CBD products on the market, including a couple of these chocolates, source CBD from cannabis without THC, aka industrial hemp. The others on the list contain various amounts of THC and are only available in some states.
And so, here is my rigorous, yet very relaxed, taste test of CBD chocolate varietals and their various promises:
Tasting notes: Leif chocolates are vegan, fair trade, and come in bright, zigzag packaging that matches their eccentric flavors. The peanut butter and jelly bar is whacky—my tasting-friend described it as “shocking”—the dust of strawberry powder on the outside tingles while the elevated-Reese’s part melts. The mint hibiscus flavor is similarly super rich, and the mint lingers for a while. I snuck a few bars into Eighth Grade, so my shoulders were practically eaten by my ears in empathetic cringes, but the tastes were so wild that I had excitement giggles about them.
Who is this chocolate’s pot muse? Carl Sagan, who wrote an anonymous essay about insights he got from weed at 35. (The chocolate marshmallows that Leif sells are definitely Matthew McConaughey though.)
What is the party that they’re driving you to? These bars are driving us to a very thorough, intricate D.I.Y. party with extravagant installations, where everyone is dressed for a sleek spaceship-wreck.
How much weed does it have? The mint hibiscus and peanut butter and jelly bar have a 1:1 CBD:THC ratio; the dark chocolate and black diamond flake sea salt bar has 100 mg CBD (no THC).
CBD Filled Chocolates – Here’s All You Need to Know
CBD has been a hot topic in recent years. Although still in its infancy, it has proved to have an extraordinary effect on your health and well-being ; you’re probably wondering, what exactly is it?
To begin with, it is a naturally occurring element; a cannabinoid out of many others present in the cannabis plant. With the advances in the technology, it is available in many forms for easy consumption, such as CBD oils and vapes.
However, it has been extracted from a herb. This means, it will come with an unfavorable taste; the taste of terpenes and signature herb flavour isn’t a popular flavour.
At Melt Chocolates , this is where our professional chocolatiers have gone all out and combined the two ingredients to create CBD Chocolates; this luxurious sweet treat offers the ability of being healthy while not compromising on taste.
Moreover, this creative and unique combination let’s you reap the benefits of CBD while allowing you to experience the extraordinary taste of our gourmet chocolates .
If you’re ready to give this combination a try, then it’s important that you understand the basics of CBD chocolates.
Before that, let’s understand a little more about CBD.
What is CBD?
An abbreviation for cannabinoid, CBD is one of the many cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant .
However, apart from the plant, these cannabinoids are also present in our body and the only difference is their name. Ours are known as endocannabinoids and they are mainly present in our ECS, the system that’s present in our main nervous system .
When it comes to CBD’s effects though, biologically, the cannabinoid reacts with your receptors in the ECS to give you the well known health benefits.
Having said that, when consumed alone, CBD is known to have an unlikable flavour which is why we, at Melt, have created CBD chocolates to help you enjoy its benefits without experiencing its unpleasant taste.
Benefits of Eating CBD Chocolates
After understanding the meaning of CBD chocolate, now is the time to dig deeper. The obvious question being, why combine it with chocolate ?
Needless to say, the answer resides in the great taste that chocolate brings which is unmatched by any other ingredient. Simply put, chocolate tastes delicious, while CBD, being a part of a plant, has the signature herb flavour and terpenes that are usually associated with the taste of herbs (marijuana in this case).
When combined with quality chocolate, however, the inherent and delicious flavour of it will complement and cover the terpene flavour of CBD.
Moreover, CBD has naturally occurring antioxidants properties and if you look closely, chocolate has them too!
With this, the cacao also has many other essential minerals such as magnesium, iron, copper and potassium. The amalgamation of CBD with chocolate , therefore, gives you many benefits, such as –
- Anti-inflammatory benefits
- Reduced diabetes risk
- Protects against cardiovascular diseases
- Stimulates your nervous system
- Helps with heart diseases
- Helps with stress, anxiety and depression.
However, ensure that you’re consuming them in a limited amount to reap just the right benefits.
How to Consume CBD Chocolates?
Due to its potential to form varied combinations according to the required customisations, it is difficult to highlight an amount of CBD that might work for you. Having said that, the amount will vary based on why you’re using it in the chocolate.
At Melt, we have combined these two ingredients to create a superfood that we like to call the ‘taste of earthly paradise’ and offer products like CBD bar and Hemp Dark Chocolate which have the ideal amount of CBD in it.
Now, when it comes to eating this chocolate , take a chunk from the bar and let it melt under your tongue to help the release of CBD in your body.
Ideally, you should start with small chunks and maintain this consistency for at least three days. If you feel no difference, you can always have larger pieces of chocolates in your routine.
That said, since CBD usage in the UK is still in its infancy, we have taken all the necessary actions and tested every ingredient to give you this product.
