Most people believe that when you smoke weed, you get the munchies, but what happens if the munchies begin even before you consume cannabis? The munchies are all about a craving. And sometimes, that craving involves chocolate. If you have a hankering for chocolate when you’re stoned, or before you’re stonedthere’s a way to enjoy both cannabis and chocolatetogether! 

From cannabis infused chocolates, THC infused seltzers, and CBD gummiesedibles have been around for a long time, providing a little something for everyone. While the world of edibles is vast, today, we’re exploring the wonderful world of cannabis chocolates. Chocolate is a popular confectionery due to its versatility, and with cannabis becoming less taboo, putting the two together just feels right. 

I’m sure that cannabis and chocolates together has been happening already for a while, and suddenly it makes sense as to why everyone was freaking out about Willy Wonka’s chocolates at the Chocolate Factory–there had to be something in those chocolates that made everyone feel that good. The lessons of Willy Wonka’s story can serve as a warning, too, because sometimes edibles can go down a dark path if you aren’t prepared or don’t know how to handle them correctly. 

When it comes to cannabis chocolates in Scarborough, Weedjar has you covered. Here are some tips to keep your cannabis experience pleasant all around so that you won’t fall into a chocolate pit of despair. 

What are Cannabis Chocolates?

To understand what cannabis chocolates are is to understand what edibles are. Edibles are food or drinks that are infused with cannabis. Weed chocolates, in particular, is chocolate that is infused with either a CBD or THC concentrate.

This isn’t exactly a new process, people have been infusing cannabis with food for a really long time by melting cannabis with butter to create cannabutter. There is probably a horror story you’ve heard about edibles that have scared you off trying them, but now with all the advancements of cannabis-infused goods, they’re regulated and dosed accurately so you know exactly what you’re getting, and what to expect. Although it might seem scary, edibles are a perfectly safe option to consume cannabis without the side effects of smoking or inhalation. If you’re worried about the effects of weed chocolates and want to learn more, our budtenders at Weedjar have the expertise to give you the lowdown on what will work best for you, based on your taste and dosage requirements. 

What to Know About Cannabis Chocolate and Edibles 

If you’re looking into getting into cannabis chocolates or other edibles, it’s important to know edible etiquette.

Know Your Dose.

The cannabis chocolates at our Weedjar shop in Eglinton offer up to 10% of THC or CBD.  Only a maximum of 10 mg of THC (the psychoactive component of cannabis) is allowed in a single package and unit of edibles.


Understanding the Difference Between THC and CBD Cannabis Chocolates

CBD is short for cannabidiol and is the non-psychoactive ingredient that helps alleviate signs of anxiety, depression, pain and helps promote better sleep. The non-psychoactive aspect of CBD is appealing to folks who are looking for the healing benefits of cannabis, without the mind-altering effects that THC can provide.

THC is tetrahydrocannabinol, which is the main ingredient that gets you high. The higher the THC percentage, the stronger your high will be. THC is also used for a number of benefits, which include increasing appetite, reducing nausea and reducing pain. 

Simply put, THC helps the way the mind perceives pain and helps in that way, whereas CBD may be able to treat it from the local source. 

Be Patient. 

The most common mistake when people try edibles is not waiting to feel the effects. Edibles require anywhere from 30 minutes to 2 hours to take full effect. We recommend that you try waiting until taking another dose to speed up the effects because more times than not, you’ll get too stoned and it will be a really uncomfortable time if you’re unprepared for the experience. 


Choosing Weed Chocolate

There’s a lot to know about weed chocolates if you’re new to the game. Before you go into the store without knowing what to ask for, let’s break down some of the common forms that cannabis chocolates come in. Cannabis can be infused with dark chocolate, white chocolate, caramels, and matcha chocolate coating, it can also be processed into lava cakes, space cakes, chocolate taffy, truffles and the beloved brownie – you name it! Although the names and shapes might change, the method of consumption stays the same; you eat it! Edibles are slow-acting, and some folks say that leaving the chocolate to melt on the tongue lets the THC or CBD seep even more slowly into your bloodstream – although that hasn’t been personally tested, it might be an option to enjoy both the flavour of the chocolate while reaping the benefits of the weed-infusion.
