A review of Flir’s Strawberry and sweet basil white chocolate bars
Move over weed brownies and infused milk chocolate bars, because there’s a new player in town, and it’s spectacular in just about every way. Though there were no expectations for this one, as white chocolate isn’t typically a big favourite around here, it wowed us so much that we just had to share the experience with you, our readers.
With a white, almost metallic sheer finish, and a bright red logo in a fun print, it’s impossible to miss these edibles, but it’s not the packaging that’s most impressive. Upon opening the pack, you’re greeted with a beautiful princess pink colour dotted with small bright green herb bits, and we’ve never seen anything quite like it. This bold colour stands out, making it a vibrant pretty snack choice on its own, but we can’t help but imagine all of the amazing desserts you could make with it too, just because the hue is so incredible.
Flir created this weed chocolate for the connoisseur who enjoys all of the benefits of THC with just enough CBD to amplify those effects. At 10mg of THC and 2mg of CBD per unit, it’s a nice blend of both cannabinoids that’s perfect for those who don’t want to go overboard with a non-psychedelic component.
The smell of strawberry and sweet basil provides a unique aroma combination that is both refreshing and reminiscent of our childhood, with an herbal undertone paired with a strong strawberry milk scent. Remember that red syrup you used to mix into a glass of milk to turn it into a sweet strawberry beverage? Well, it’s a lot like that, only without the chemical finish so often caused by far too many additives.
Oh so much berry goodness can be found in each and every bite of this Flir weed chocolate bar, and the way it melts the moment it hits your tongue is glorious and indicative of high-quality ingredients. The addition of basil might sound strange at first, but once that herbal taste kicks in, it’s hard to see why more candy makers don’t reach for the stars with such a healthy and tasty ingredient. It really does taste great, and despite our best efforts (and a little overindulging), we couldn’t find so much as a hint of stereotypical cannabis flavour that is so often prevalent in other edibles.
The felt effects of this one were interesting, with an uplifting aroma it was hard not to feel more awake, and yet at the same time, the mild dose of THC was calming, perfect for those who struggle with anxiety or depression. Due to a lower dose of THC, the experience is suited to consumers of any experience level, though beginners might still want to start with a single square because even though it doesn’t pack a powerful punch, it induced relaxing full-body sensations in a lover of edibles with plenty of experience and high tolerance.
