Edibles have grown so much in popularity over the past few years. Today, there are all kinds of delicious infused foods on dispensary shelves. You can find countless recipes online that can enable you to make your favorite edibles at home, too.
One of the most popular treats around is cannabis chocolate. Whether you purchase one at the dispensary or make it in your kitchen, infused chocolate makes every dose delightful.
Benefits of Cannabis Chocolate
Some people prefer dark chocolate, while others like milk or white. Like ordinary chocolate, cannabis chocolate is available in different types and flavors. You’re bound to find something that suits your preferences — and when you have your favorite type of chocolate, every cannabis dose becomes that much more enjoyable.
Like most edibles, cannabis chocolate is incredibly discreet. To everyone else, it looks like you’re eating a piece of regular chocolate. But you’re also using cannabis to help alleviate anxiety, reduce pain, or retain focus on what you need to do.
Chocolates from dispensaries make dosing a breeze, too. Because of the informative product labels, you’ll always know exactly how much CBD or THC you’re getting with each serving.
Best Cannabis Chocolates to Try
Several companies make delicious and infused chocolates. Below are just a few to consider the next time you’re at your local dispensary.
Kiva got its start in 2010 when the company’s founders wanted to fill the need for high-quality edibles. Today, they offer a vast array of gourmet chocolate bars and bites, along with mints and gummies.
Défoncé offers a range of dark, milk, and white chocolate bars that are just as aesthetically pleasing as they are delicious. The company sources its chocolate from a Belgian gourmet manufacturer that has more than 100 years of mastery in selecting, blending, and roasting the finest beans.
Chill prides itself on offering high-quality chocolates made using ethically-sourced ingredients. The company offers a range of products in different flavors and different ratios of CBD to THC, providing something for almost every need.
How to Make Cannabis Chocolate at Home
If you enjoy cooking and baking, you can also make cannabis chocolate at home.
The first step is to decarboxylate your chosen cannabis strain to activate the cannabinoids. Grind the buds and spread them out on a baking sheet. Bake them at 220° to 240° Fahrenheit for 30 to 45 minutes.
Next, place your favorite chocolate in a bowl. Boil water in a saucepan and put the bowl on top. Turn the heat down to a simmer. Stir the chocolate until it’s melted. Be careful not to let any water into your chocolate. Add your decarboxylated cannabis and stir it in. Ideally, the buds should be finely ground.
When everything’s incorporated, pour the chocolate mixture into molds and tap out the air bubbles. You can help the chocolate to set by putting the molds in the fridge. Once they’re ready, pop them out and enjoy them responsibly.
A Final Note on Cannabis Chocolate
Cannabis chocolates are a delicious and easy way to get your dose. If your local dispensary doesn’t have exactly what you want and you’re feeling crafty, consider decarboxylating your favorite strain and adding it to your favorite chocolate recipes.
