This is the fourth and final nut butter I have tried by Naturecan, following on from the milk chocolate, triple nut and honey sea salt, sticking to a slightly more traditional type with the crunchy peanut butter. I also got my girlfriend to help me with this review, partly because she’s more of a fan of crunchy peanut butters (I’m more of a smooth fan) and because we just wanted to eat lots of peanut butter!
How Much CBD Do You Get?
As with all four nut butters, you get 90mg of CBD in the 180g tub. The recommended usage of 15g includes 7.5mg of CBD, however I found I used around double this, 15g only covered around one piece of toast (maybe I’m rubbing them too thick, oops).
How Many Calories Is This?
A 15g serving provides you with 85 calories, of which a fair portion comes from fat, being 6.9 grams. Considering my normal peanut butter contains 588 calories per 100g, I was pleasantly surprised to see this was slightly lower at 564 calories.
The ingredients are 99.9% peanuts, so there isn’t much else in there, but it’s important to state you can’t taste the CBD, it just tastes of normal peanut butter. Considering it’s virtually all peanuts, this makes it also vegan friendly.
How Long Will This Last?
The shelf life of my tub is around 1 year from the moment it arrived, however I’m sure as it’s a best before date, it’s probably ok after this point. In regards to how many uses will I get, I used around 30 grams when I had this on two slices of toast, which would mean I would get 6 uses from a tub (or 12 if I cut down to one piece of toast).
Why Should I Eat This Nut Butter?
The high quantity of fibre in peanuts makes this a great option and, providing you don’t eat too much, peanut butter has a strong connection to weight loss (I know it sounds bizarre but it’s true).
Eating peanut butter can help to keep you full up for longer, while the presence of p-coumaric acid means it will help to reduce oxidative stress and can help to reduce damage done to cells.
I mentioned the presence of fat, 6.9g in a 15g serving, but only 1.2g is saturated, with most coming from oleic acid, which is a monounsaturated fat.
Peanut butter also contains a hefty amount of protein, being 3.8g in a 15g serving, so it’s good for anyone looking to increase their protein intake around training. If you’re on a low carb diet and you’re not allowed bread then peanut butter is still a good option, with only 1.9g from a 15g serving.
But lastly and the most important note, it tastes great! I absolutely love peanut butter, it tastes so good on toast and you don’t have to negotiate on taste just because it includes CBD.
Where Can I Purchase This From?
You can purchase the Naturecan CBD Infused Crunchy Peanut Butter from their website, while you can alternatively opt for the 400 gram tub if you prefer a larger amount.
