A review of the mint dark chocolate bar by Blessed
After meeting the brainchild of Blessed Edibles, Angelina Blessed, and learning about her personal journey, experience, and success with infused cannabis treats, we couldn’t wait to get our hands on some of the company’s delicious snacks. To start, we tried the Mint Dark Chocolate with Cocoa Nibs and Sea Salt and in this article, we’ll talk a little bit about what you can expect from the experience, starting with visual appeal, and ending with what is perhaps the most important feature, its effects on the mind and body.
At first glance this chocolaty snack looks fantastic, boasting a black package with a bright, easy-to-read logo and nutrition label, so sleek it’d make a perfect gift even without wrapping, and what lies under the protective layer is no less disappointing, with a deep dark colour and small sprinkles of salt for a special and unique visual effect. You can tell just by looking at it, that this bar is made using high-quality ingredients, with such a dark hue, and smooth finish.
This THC chocolate offers a low amount of the psychoactive compound, at 10mg per bar, but what is most exciting about this one is that it includes a hearty dose of CBD, weighing in at 100mg per unit. Since this line of cannabis edibles was designed by and with athletes in mind, it makes sense to keep the focus on therapeutic benefits versus a stereotypical high. With more CBD than most pure cannabidiol-infused snacks or drinks, this incredible combination is one that appeals most to consumers who are seeking the healing characteristics of the medicinal compound.
The look of the cannabis chocolate bar itself might not stand apart too much from a typical run-of-the-mill treat you’d find at a local grocery store, the way it smells tells a story that cannot be denied. With a deep cocoa aroma and hints of mint alluding to its mintiness, it’s a treat for the senses, even before you take a bite.
Flavour is important, whether it’s your average snack or something you eat as medicine and Blessed really went the extra mile to make this one something consumers can enjoy. There’s virtually no trace of that stereotypical edible taste, and instead, the tastebuds are greeted with a thick, creamy, dark chocolate bite that is smooth with just the right amount of crunch, thanks to the addition of sea salt. What was best, is the way that the mint slowly creeps in, providing just enough flavour without being overwhelmingly strong. In the end, one thing is clear, and it’s that these chocolate bars are dangerously good!
With only 10mg of THC, it was a pleasant surprise to feel a gentle wave of effects that slowly crept over the body. Just enough to appease even the most experienced consumers who want an experience that isn’t too intense or overwhelming. Though it’s hard to say which element exactly caused it, we think it’s safe to say that 100mg of CBD is likely responsible for the boost of energy that soon followed the subtle effects of its psychoactive cousin.
Blessed Edibles specializes in high-performance and recovery CBD cannabis products such as oils, edibles, and drinks. With a focus on all-natural ingredients that are good for the body and unique flavour combinations to facilitate a more enjoyable experience, we’d say the products they offer are leaps and bounds ahead of the curve in terms of medicinal benefits and taste.
