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:
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.
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.
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.
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).
