It’s time to ditch the quintessential Godiva chocolates this Valentine’s day for something a bit more mind altering. After adult use cannabis became legal in many U.S. states, gourmet chocolatiers infused popular cannabinoids like THC and CBD into milk, white, and dark chocolate bars, truffles, and other confections.
There are too many artisan chocolate brands to name (and more on the way), but a few companies have stood out, especially for their dark chocolate products. Not only will discerning chocolate lovers appreciate these strong and complex cacao sweets, but these dark chocolate products can set the mood this Valentine’s Day.
For couples in California, Nevada, and Arizona, Kiva Confections has become a beloved edible brand. Kiva’s award-winning edibles include their Dark Chocolate bar (100 mg THC) featuring 54% cacao and decadent black coffee and dark cherry notes. If your partner loves a caffeine kick with their dark chocolate, try Kiva’s Espresso Dark Chocolate Terra Bites made with micro-roasted Tanzanian coffee beans (5 mg THC per bite).
Dixie Elixirs is another key player in the chocolate edible game in Arizona, California, Colorado, Maryland, and Nevada. Made with 70% cacao, lovebirds can enjoy 100 mg THC bar of their Straight Up Dark Chocolate. If mint and chocolate are your partner’s thing, try the 500 mg Peppermint Dark Chocolate bar.
Mix it up this Valentine’s day with dark chocolate covered nuts and fruits by Satori. For the plain jane chocolate enthusiast, give their 90 mg THC Dark Chocolate bar a bite. Satori’s CBD-Rich Salted Caramel Almonds (140 CBD and 14 mg THC) are the perfect bite-size treat to feed your lover.
Satori puts their twist on chocolate covered strawberries with their Wild Strawberries or Highbush Blueberries In Dark Chocolate (100 mg THC each). These gourmet chocolates are sure to surprise your loved one.
Lord Jones has made their name as a luxury CBD edible brand. These tasty gourmet treats won’t get you or your significant other high. Their High CBD Dark Chocolate Espresso Chews, however, can give you a slight caffeine boost. Made from single-origin Ecuadorian dark chocolate, these chews contain 20 mg of CBD each. Order yours online.
It doesn’t get more gourmet than Défoncé, which is French for “stoned.” All of their bars are gluten-free and vegan. Even their interlocking-triangle bar design is sleek. Their Dark Chocolate Bar contains 90 mg of THC and 66% cacao or you can get a higher cacao percentage (81%) with their Dark+ bar. Add a crunch to balance the bitterness with the Hazelnut bar made with roasted hazelnuts, caramel bits, and cocoa nibs.
Are you a fan of dark chocolate truffles? Calivolve makes CBD-infused Cherry, Matcha, or Mint chocolate truffles with 20 mg of CBD each. You’ll also find other stress-reducing ingredients like ashwagandha, and maca. These jewel-shaped truffles won’t alter your senses, so you can go out and enjoy the rest of your Valentine’s Day plans. Order them online or buy them in select Los Angeles stores and dispensaries.
1906 New Highs
Colorado’s 1906 New Highs can elicit specific effects like happiness or energy for your romantic night. Substitute your Reese’s cravings with their Bliss dark chocolate peanut butter cups with 5 mg of THC and CBD each. For a more active Valentine’s Day, give your partner the Go gems or coffee beans made for energy with single strain sativa (5 mg THC/CBD).
For the ultimate cannabis chocolate gift, give your partner multiple dark chocolate products so they can try different flavors, THC:CBD ratios, and effects. Dark chocolate cannabis products are the ideal addition to any Valentine’s Day and they will undoubtedly put a smile on your lover’s face.
