Valentine’s Day is coming. You’re not sure what to get. You’ve done flowers. You’ve done jewelry, and you’ve probably done chocolatestoo, but this year you want to be cool. You don’t want to be all…uncool.
While THC edibles are still working their way through the slow but steady legalization process, CBD-infused foods have fast become the darling of the natural remedy and homeopathic world. Depending on where you are, you can get CBD drizzled on or infused into anything from artisan coffeeto ice cream and, of course, chocolates too!
With none of the psychotropic effects that THC (full force marijuana) impart, CBD (cannabidiol) is reported to deliver mild relief from ailments like anxiety, joint pain, and a slew of others. Manufactures from Vermont to California have jumped into the CBD game with chocolates, caramels, hard candies, and teas.
As Erin Barry, an advocate who works with and sells organic CBD products at Nutty Steph’s in Vermont, told me recently, “herbal supplements are gaining popularity as folks are looking for pharmaceutical alternatives, and our collective society doesn’t seem to be getting healthier from drugs made in a lab.” There are still some vagaries with what you can legally purchase where, so consult with the retailer and your state’s laws before ordering, but here are a few of our favorite CBD chocolates and sweet treats to give this Valentine’s Day.
Nutty Steph has been dosing the good people of Montpelier, Vermont for years now with her wild and wonderful CBD and THC chocolate creations (they also happen to be mom’s favorite). A great deal at just $55 for an entire case, Steph’s will ship anywhere in the U.S., and yes, of course there’s a tribute bar with Bernie on the case. Join the revolution!See It
The only thing your S.O. will love more than eating their high end CBD chocolate on Valentine’s Day, is eating it off of YOU! That’s why HighOnLove (clever) created this saucy and smearable cannabinoid oil-infused chocolate body paint (aka the ultimate ULTIMATE aphrodisiac) in a darling heart-shaped bottle. Buy some now and thank us later.See It
With four pieces in each box and 10 mg per piece, Tasty Hemp Oil chocolates make a lovely gift in any of their three fab flavors: dark chocolate, dark chocolate mint, or raspberry milk chocolate.
