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.
And so, here is my rigorous, yet very relaxed, taste test of CBD chocolate varietals and their various promises:
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.

Is There THC In Green Roads’ CBD Products?
Will CBD make me hungry?
Green Roads CBD oil is a premium option from a brand that sets the gold standard for quality control in the industry. We use naturally occurring cannabidiol (CBD) and other natural compounds without any artificial ingredients or harmful chemical substances.
If the CBD product is broad-spectrum, it will have only non-detectable levels of THC (meaning the amount is so small it doesn’t show up on a lab report). If the product is isolate, there will be no THC. If the product is full-spectrum, it will have less than 0.3% THC, the federally legal limit for industrial hemp plants.
