I haven’t reviewed a CBD chocolate in a good while, so I was excited to give these a try, while I had to keep my girlfriend from eating them all as they arrived! This is a great option for those who are trying to find a more convenient way to consume your CBD than dropping it under your tongue for 2 minutes.
How Did It Taste?
I was really pleasantly surprised with how nice it was. I was worried as I’m a bit of a fancy snob when it comes to dark chocolate, as the cheaper stuff never tastes as nice, so I opt for top quality brand each time. This chocolate had that great bitter taste, while it melted in my mouth and left me craving another as soon as I finished (it was so hard to hold strong).
I’ve also had a CBD infused dark chocolate in the past that had the flavour affected by the presence of the cannabinoid and it tasted way too strong, however you wouldn’t even know there was CBD in this going by the taste.
How Much CBD Do You Get?
Each piece contains 20mg of CBD, which is quite sizeable compared to others I’ve had, which had 5mg per ball. It comes as a pack of 10, meaning you get 200mg of CBD in a single pack.
The lab report actually showed it slightly higher at 2.2mg per gram of weight, while this is 10g, meaning 22mg of CBD (if the lab report is accurate to the batch you’re getting).
It also showed THC as ‘not detected’, which is important to know for anyone who is tested, such as athletes or firefighters, but it is still worth double checking with the brand beforehand.
Each 10g bar contains 57 calories, coming from 4.3g of fat (2.6g saturated), 3.2g of carbohydrates (2.7g sugar) and 0.8g of protein. You also get a nice 1.1g of fibre with each serving, so you can make the excuse to yourself that you’re thinking of your health as you tuck into the chocolate.
Can You Also Get Milk Chocolate?
Yes you can, if you’re not a fan of dark chocolate then you can opt for the milk chocolate, which has all the same stats in regards to CBD quantity and size of product.
Cocoa being the main ingredient, it states it is a minimum of 70% cocoa solids, while the milk chocolate is a minimum of 34%.
Can I Cook With This Chocolate?
You can but I wouldn’t recommend it as it can lose its potential efficacy and can also change the flavour. If you do decide to do so, make sure to keep the temperature very low and never boil it. Don’t fry or saute the chocolate, as the temperature will certainly be too hot.
Some people have found the results haven’t diminished too much when cooked in the oven at a low temperature, but again I wouldn’t want to risk losing the CBD that I would have paid so much for.
Where Can I Purchase This From?
You can purchase the Naturecan CBD Infused Dark Chocolate from their website, either as a pack of 10 or individually. You can also choose from this page whether you want the dark or milk chocolate.
