This week I could not be more thrilled to be reviewing these two high quality, and incredibly tasty, products: Nature Nurse Cocoa Cannabinoids in CBD and THC variations. I love chocolate, but often find myself dismayed to read the ingredients list of most edibles in the industry. These chocolates are hands down the best pure chocolate I’ve had since I started reviewing products. From the website: “Rooted in ancient plant wisdom and expanded upon through science, Nature Nurse products support the Endocannabinoid System […] to achieve & maintain systematic homeostasis.” That’s quite a mission statement! Read on to discover how these edibles can benefit your body.
Cocoa Cannabinoids CBD
Ingredients: Cocoa, sugar, CO2 extracted hemp derived cannabis oil
Cannabinoid content: 2.5mg CBD per chocolate | 75mg CBD per package
Available: Can be purchased through the company’s website
Cocoa Cannabinoids THC
Ingredients: Cocoa, sugar, CO2 extracted cannabis oil
Cannabinoid content: 2.5mg THC per chocolate | 75mg THC per package
Things to know: Organic, sustainably sourced, 72 percent cacao
Available: In California dispensaries
What I liked: Let’s start with the most important thing – the taste! These are delicious. The flavor is a little sharp initially due to its cacao percentage, but the sweetness quickly appears as it blends into a refreshing chocolate bite. The mouthfeel is creamy and smooth and leaves me wanting more. I can’t taste the cannabis in either formulation. The effects took about an hour to kick in and lasted around 2-3 hours (your mileage may vary based on metabolism and tolerance).
What I would change: I wish they came in packages of more than 30! Seriously, these are spectacular. I have it on good authority that the company is planning a packaging upgrade in the coming months, so it may look different by the time you find it on the website or the dispensary shelves.
Overall: These are great for so many reasons! I love the 2.5mg dosing because it allows consumers to microdose and find the amount that works for them. I was feeling a bit of a headache coming on while visiting a friend so I ate two of the CBD squares, and within an hour I was feeling much better! I appreciate that Heather Manus, RN (the CEO of Nature Nurse), is committed to sustainable business practices and has ensured that the cocoa she’s using for her chocolates is ethically sourced.
