The League of Cannabiz has a penchant for all things chocolatey. And even though someone has mysteriously gone around biting off the ears of the chocolate Easter bunnies on my desk, those with more grown up expectations have been busily taste testing Bhang Medicinal Chocolates (which some might argue has helped with the creative process at 420 Web Pros)
A little info on the company: The folks at Bhang come from chocolatier backgrounds and use Fair Trade Venezuelan cacao in all their chocolates; they even make non-medicated chocolates for high-end grocery establishments like Whole Foods. Whether it’s for their non-medicated or medicated bars, Bhang maintains a high standard and uses only quality ingredients. That goes for the cannabis they use too. In effect, what you get is a product that’s lab and kitchen tested. Safety, quality and consistency is what they’re going for and the result is a medicinal edible that’s won more awards than any other medicinal edible.
Bhang bars are offered in single, double and, for those of you who are up for it, triple strength dose. Some bars are made from hybrid strains and others contain pure Indica. Each bar is conveniently segmented into four sections so the tiny-waisted people can watch their caloric intake and eat in moderation as the rest of you lot greedily devour entire sections because you love chocolate oh so much. There are also a bite sized truffles available.
Our testers, self-proclaimed foodies, happily sampled different Bhang bars and were asked to provide their opinions.
“The chocolate was amazing. Aside from this being a medicated bar, the chocolate actually tasted like real gourmet chocolate and not synthetic chocolate.” Belgian chocolates vs. old lady box of chocolates from the drug store. Got it.
“Bhang changed the topping/recipe on their toffee bar. I like this one out of all the bars the best but I like the old version of the bar better. I think it had more sea salt.” Try eating it at the beach then.
“I like the variety of flavors but I really like that proceeds from the CBD bar are donated to a cancer patient undergoing chemo at an L.A. hospital and that a dollar from the Fire bar sales goes to HIV and AIDS research and support.” Charity and chocolate, always a lovely pairing.
“As a big guy, I didn’t expect that one section of the triple strength bar would do me in but it did, so eat it only if you don’t have to do anything later. To be honest, I might still be high.” Yeah, or maybe try the double strength bite size truffles next time?
“My favorites are the Pretzel bar and the Fire Chocolate bar. The Pretzel Chocolate kind of tasted a little coconutty even though it doesn’t list coconut as an ingredient. It has peanut butter in it. I don’t know why but maybe my palate confuses peanut butter with coconut? Either way, it was tasty. The Fire Chocolate has a chili pepper on the packaging, which suggests just a little kick. I think that’s pretty accurate. Both are very delicious bars that satiated my chocolate craving.” Satiated? Nice vocab.
Overall, our tasters give Bhang Chocolates a 10 out of 10. California patients, you can order your bars from Zen OC.
