Up next on CBD Sloth is the Hempura white chocolates, because how can you say no to trying CBD infused chocolates? I’ve been aware of Hempura for over a year now, but this is the first time I’ve tried a product by them, so it has been long overdue.
How Much CBD Do You Get?
It depends on which pack you buy, but the pack I have is 200mg, based on 20 chocolates, each containing 10mg of CBD each.
You can alternatively opt for a 500mg or 1,000mg option. Which ever you pick, it will still remain 20 chocolates, but the strength of each chocolate will change, to either 25mg or 50mg each.
Each pack of Hempura CBD chocolate will come with a batch code on the back, alongside the expiry date. This will allow you to look up the lab reports for that batch on their website, to offer greater transparency (something I always love to see).
As with virtually all edibles, they have to utilise a CBD isolate in order to enhance the flavour and prevent terpenes from affecting the end taste. For this reason, a quick look over the lab reports show CBD is the only cannabinoid present in this chocolate. You can also have a read of my guide to certificates of analysis if you want to learn how to understand them.
The lab report doesn’t highlight the terpene breakdown in the batch, however the packaging states that each pack contains 66mg of terpenes, phytocannabinoids and oils, beyond the highlighted 200mg of cannabidiol.
The hemp is organically grown, meaning there are no pesticides, chemical fertilisers or herbicides used, ensuring it doesn’t end up in the final product, as hemp is highly porous.
While with many other forms of CBD you will get a fatty source such as olive oil or MCT oil to help increase the absorption rate after swallowed, the chocolate contains cocoa butter, dried whole milk and milk fat which will take on this role.
How Do I Take Them?
Despite the temptation to bite into chocolate once it’s in the mouth, you should actually place the chocolate under the tongue, to allow the CBD to be properly absorbed into the blood stream.
Hold it here until it melts and then you can move it around your mouth and swallow.
I was actually surprised the packaging appeared more like a medical treatment than a chocolate, but I assume this is to keep them from moving around or breaking up at all.
Through the testing period, I had 2 at a time, first thing in the morning. I opted for the morning as it contains sugar, which I will undoubtedly burn off during the day, but I probably won’t if I took it straight before bed.
The amount you take is partly down to personal choice, but you might want to start off with 1 if you’ve never taken CBD before, then building up over time to the required amount. The generally recommended max in a 24 hour period is 70mg, being 7 chocolates (if you purchase the 200mg option).
Where Can I Buy These From?
You can buy the Hempura CBD White Chocolates from their website for £19.99 in the 200mg pack. I’m also happy to say you can get 5% off with the discount code ‘CBDSLOTH5’.
