At the intersection of California’s high-tech innovation and its infamous high-quality cannabis cultivation, Delta Munchies’ executive team has planted their passion for showcasing the diversity and complexity of the cannabis plant. With over 16 years of experience working with the cannabis plant, they specialize in hemp-derived cannabinoids Delta-8 THC, Delta-9 THC, and HHC. And while competition is fierce in the Delta-8 space, Delta Munchies is standing out with accessible products that incorporate alternative cannabinoids and botanical terpenes.
With a bit of a rebellious attitude, the Delta Munchies team is devoted to pushing the industry forward by merging the uplifting and free-spirited nature of cannabis culture into a fun, approachable brand that fills a void between newbies and aficionados. Delta Munchies primarily educates and informs consumers about the potential euphoric and relaxing benefits of their edibles through informative blogs. Ensuring that customers enjoy the cleanest, most potent Delta-8 products on the market is at the forefront of their mission. However, education and proper dosing are equally important, which is why you’ll find a dosing chart on their website. Quality ingredients aren’t enough—they want to make sure you truly understand which product and how much of it is going to help you attain your desired experience.
Delta Munchies has a plethora of products to choose from, including strain-specific offerings, abundant high and low-dosing options and reimagined sweets and vapes. Here are just a few that caught our attention.
2-Gram Delta 8 Dart XL Vapes
Delta Munchies is the first cannabis brand to introduce 2-gram Delta-8 disposable vapes crafted with a unique blend of cannabis-derived and botanical terpenes. This first-of-its-kind disposable vape pen is known for delivering an incredibly smooth, powerful draw. Built with an innovative, easy-to-carry, rechargeable design, its 2-gram chamber contains its potent, customized Delta-8 THC formulas.
With strain-specific vapes, you can enjoy your favorite flavors and smells while feeling confident about the efficacy and quality. Delta Munchies offers 12 different flavor profiles, including many iconic strain-specific options. From Strawberry Dream and Forbidden Fruit to Apple Fritter and Kosher Kush, there’s something for everyone.
Delta-8 THC Gummies
Delta Munchies’ Delta-8 Gummies also come in a wide array of flavors, shapes and sizes. From Sour Worms, Tropical Punch Gummies, Rainbow Sour Belts, Peach Rings and Gummie Bears, there’s no doubt you’ll find a gummie that keeps you wanting more. The Sour Belts are certainly a fan favorite. Available in Strawberry, Berry Blue and Green Apple, each bag contains 3000mg Delta-8 with 300mg Delta-8 per belt. They’re one of the most powerful gummies out there!
Hexahydrocannabinol, or “HHC,” is a naturally occurring cannabinoid, an organic compound found in cannabis plants. While hemp-derived HHC may make you feel high, relaxed and less anxious than other hemp-derived organic compounds, Delta Munchies HHC Gummies are made with only American-grown hemp. This means, their expert team knows the exact growing conditions and can ensure a higher quality of edibles.
Delta-8 THC Cartridges
In addition to their 2-gram disposable vape, Delta Munchies makes a 1-gram Delta-8 THC cartridge using a combination of natural terpenes. Delta Munchies carts are built with an ingenious, medical-grade glass tank that fits most 510 thread batteries. You can enjoy a clean and potent trip without MCT oils or other harmful cutting agents in the Delta-8 THC distillate.
Full-Spectrum Delta-9 THC Gummies
Made with 11 different cannabinoids combined with Delta-9, Delta Munchies’ full-spectrum Delta-9 gummies may provide stress relief with a gradual psychoactive high. Full-spectrum means the highest amount of natural cannabinoids is extracted during harvesting and cultivation. Using full-spectrum cannabinoids encourages the entourage effect, which highlights the potencies of each cannabinoid to produce the ultimate psychoactive experience, and each of their gummies creates a unique, potent and synergistic cannabis experience. Each Delta-9 gummie contains 10mg Delta 9, 1mg CBN, 1mg CBG, 1mg CBD, plus traces of eight additional cannabinoids: CBC, CBCa, CBGa, CBDa, THCV, THCva, D8, and THCa.
Hoping to shift the view on alternative cannabinoids and redefine hemp as a user-friendly, beneficial plant, Delta Munchies employs rigorous research before bringing new products to market, ensuring safety and reliability. They engage in third-party, full-panel lab testing protocols to ensure you’ll always enjoy the cleanest and most potent products on the market. Generally, a full panel analysis consists of six critical tests, including potency, heavy metals, pesticides, mycotoxins, residual solvents and terpenes. Going the extra step in using full panel testing allows for greater customer confidence. Skip the dispensary next time and try their easy online ordering.

When the first inventive chef decided to combine cannabis and chocolate – two of the most beloved treats around the world – they must have known they were on to a winner. The rise in popularity of edibles has led to the creation of cannabis chocolate, a delicious and convenient way to consume cannabis. However, many people wonder whether cannabis chocolate tastes like weed or not.
Whilst many love cannabis, the taste isn’t exactly something you particularly want in your chocolate flavor. Well, the taste of infused treats can depend on various factors, including the quality of the product, the type of cannabis used, and the manufacturing process. In this article, we will explore these factors and answer the question of whether cannabis chocolate tastes like weed or not. Let’s go.
What are Edibles?
Cannabis has been used for medicinal and recreational purposes for centuries. In recent years, there has been a surge in popularity of cannabis edibles, which are food items that are infused with cannabis. Cannabis edibles provide a convenient and discreet way to consume cannabis, but there are some important things to know about them. These products can come in a variety of forms, including baked goods, candy, chocolate, gummies, and beverages.
You’ll have probably heard of the famous THC cookies that seem to find themselves in every stoner film ever made. The active compounds in cannabis, such as THC and CBD, are extracted and added to the food items. The amount of cannabis in each edible can vary, so it’s definitely important to read the packaging and follow the dosage instructions. A friend of mine once didn’t do this and ended up eating an entire cookie, sat still for about 5 hours, buzzed out of his brain, waiting for the nausea to stop. This is why it’s crucial to understand the differences between consuming edibles and smoking.
How Edibles are Consumed
Cannabis edibles work differently than smoking or vaping cannabis. When you smoke or vape cannabis, the active compounds are absorbed into the bloodstream through the lungs, which results in a rapid onset of effects. This can literally take around 30-60 seconds. With cannabis edibles, the active compounds are absorbed through the digestive system, which can take a lot longer. It can take anywhere from 30 minutes to 2 hours to feel the effects of cannabis edible, but the effects can last for several hours. The experience can also be far more intense. Why is this? Well, the active compounds are metabolized differently when consumed in food. You’ll usually be consuming more actual THC than you’re used to when you vape or smoke it. CCSA writes:
“Edible cannabis travels first to your stomach then to your liver before getting into your bloodstream and brain. The liver converts THC into a stronger form and this combined with the THC from the original product adds to the intensity of the high.”
Due to this intensity, it is probably ideal to start with a low dosage and wait for the effects to kick in before consuming more. You don’t want to end up like my friend and the THC cookies – he wasn’t very happy at all. This sometimes means literally waiting hours but, in the end, you’ll be happy you did.
Benefits of Edibles
Beyond the fears of overdosing on edibles, it’s important to note why people adore them and why they have gained deserved popularity. The world of THC or CBD-infused food and drinks has changed the way that cannabis is perceived. Suddenly you no longer need to smoke these substances to enjoy their benefits. This is great for both the recreational and medical world. Here are some of these main positives:
Although this can be horrible if it’s undesired, longer-lasting effects means you don’t need to continue taking doses to experience the high. When cannabis is smoked, the effects typically last for a few hours. With edibles, the effects can last up to eight hours. This can be beneficial for those who need longer-lasting pain relief or other medicinal benefits.

No smoke inhalation
Another benefit of eating cannabis edibles is that there is no smoke inhalation. Smoking cannabis can be harsh and dangerous on the lungs, especially for those with respiratory issues. Edibles offer a smoke-free alternative for those who still want to experience the benefits of cannabis. This is far healthier.
When smoking cannabis, it can be difficult to accurately measure the amount of cannabis consumed. With edibles, the dosage is pre-measured and listed on the packaging. This makes it easier for individuals to control their dosage and avoid consuming too much cannabis.
Edibles are a discreet way to consume cannabis. They can be easily consumed in public without drawing attention, unlike smoking. This can be beneficial for individuals who want to use cannabis for medicinal purposes but do not want to attract unwanted attention.
Unique flavors and experiences
Edibles come in a variety of flavors and forms, which can offer a unique and enjoyable experience for consumers. From gummies to baked goods to chocolate, there is a wide range of edibles to choose from.
Cannabis Chocolate Flavor
So as you can see, there is a wide range of benefits when it comes to cannabis edibles. But one of the most popular types is certainly the chocolate products. This combines weed with one of most delicious treats available in the world. But does the chocolate get spoilt by the flavor of cannabis? Let’s be honest here, weed does not taste good. The habit itself is enjoyed and many people love the feeling of the smoke in their mouths. But eating it, for pleasure, is a totally different thing. If you’re someone that loves munching on something that tastes exactly like cannabis buds then I sit here mistaken, but I think the majority of you will agree with me. Engadget writes:
“One hundred percent of the edibles market is focused on removing that recognizable scent and flavor of the cannabis plant and replacing it with something that’s more aesthetically familiar.”
The truth is that cannabis chocolate can taste like weed but it also doesn’t have to – it all depends on the quality of the product. It depends on various factors, including the quality of the chocolate, the type of cannabis used, and the manufacturing process. Some cannabis chocolate brands use high-quality chocolate to mask the taste of cannabis, resulting in a more traditional chocolate flavor. Other brands use lower quality chocolate, resulting in a more noticeable cannabis flavor. This is the same with all brands of edibles, the more advanced products will spend more time and money on achieving their ultimate goal: making a tasty product that gets people high without the left-over flavor of weed.
The Taste of Cannabis
Like any plant, cannabis has an overarching bitter, earthy taste. Whilst it has incredible effects – both medically and recreationally – its flavor isn’t exactly what it is most loved for. Although, it does have a very particular smell. The smell is, in a sense, far more enjoyable than its taste. Cannabis plants contain compounds called terpenes, which are responsible for the distinct aroma and flavor of each strain. While some people enjoy the taste and smell of terpenes, others may find them overpowering or unpleasant. Weed can ultimately have a harsh and bitter taste that many won’t like. The taste can also linger in the mouth and cause bad breath.
Best Cannabis Chocolates
For me, the best cannabis chocolate needs to combine both great cannabis with great flavor. It’s as simple as that. Of course, this isn’t as easy to find as you think. Without research, you may easily purchase a product that tastes slightly of weed and gets you too high or not high enough. It’s important to spend time reading reviews. My preferred cannabis chocolate is this: Birthday Cake. It was recommended to me by Forbes Magazine and, as a lover of white chocolate, It’s my ideal. Vanilla cake with some colorful sprinkles, and the effects of high-quality THC. Plus, it doesn’t have any real lingering unwanted flavors. This is key.
Cannabis chocolate is an art form in itself, and many products fail to really reach their true potential. Cannabis and chocolate are a great combination, but only when the best of each of them are highlighted. Without the right effects and the right flavor, there’s no point. These products can taste like weed, but usually due to a lack of quality. Make sure to do your research to try and purchase the right items for you.

All it takes is four steps. You’re only four steps away from making a Rick Simpson Oil-infused syrup that you’ll want to keep on hand to easily make cannabis beverages at home. No alcohol, no fuss, and you have total control over dosage and ingredients. Sounds pretty great, no?
RSO in the Kitchen
If you’re looking for a potent, relatively inexpensive, full-spectrum extract to incorporate in the kitchen, Rick Simpson Oil (RSO) is the perfect choice. It has a concentrated cannabis-flower taste that adds depth and bitterness to a drink or dish (it even boasts a floral sweetness, depending on the strain), with a powerful dosage that’s convenient to work with when making therapeutic foods.
Rick Simpson Oil/RSO is a super-concentrated cannabis oil that’s also full spectrum, meaning it contains all of the cannabinoids, terpenes and flavonoids of the plant. It’s made with a high-octane solvent, such as ethanol, then left unrefined beyond extraction, resulting in a high percentage of original chemical compounds and chlorophyll left in the final product.
Heat gently applied during the extraction process burns off the solvent and decarboxylates the cannabinoids, so the oil is ready to be applied as a potent topical or eaten as-is. The catch: It tastes terrible. However, this actually makes it ideal for infusing foods that make the most of its fiercely bitter, herbal flavors, and allows for the creation of heavy-hitting edibles that fully maximize the entourage effect (the idea that the specific chemical compounds and oils found naturally in cannabis strains are amplified in strength when left together).
Who’s Rick Simpson?
The eponymous creator and advocate of the dark, sticky cannabis oil recommends making the extract from your own plants so you know precisely what has and hasn’t gone into the final product. He first published his DIY recipe for Rick Simpson Oil—a name first coined by Jack Herer—on the internet in 2004. Simpson himself poetically calls the oil “Phoenix Tears” and has never patented his method, ensuring the information remains freely available to literally anyone who wants it.
For years, he made RSO personally from his home grow and gave it away for medicinal use, but a 2009 raid by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police put a full and final stop to that effort. He and his wife Danijela now live in Croatia, where they continue to be tremendous cannabis activists and educators, despite Simpson suffering a paralyzing stroke in 2018. They currently sell the authoritative books on RSO from their websiteand offer instructions on how to produce the oil.
1/8 tsp. Liquid Sunflower Lecithin** (found in health food stores or online; do not sub powder)
1 cup Sugar
2 cups Water
Immersion or High-speed Blender
Change the math to correlate to your specific percentages of THC or CBD in your RSO, but as an example: The average RSO contains about 60-80% THC per gram. So, if the gram of RSO used in this recipe had 60% THC, it would come out to 600mg THC in the final bottle of syrup. Divide that total by the number of servings (which in this case is 19), so 19 servings equal roughly 30mg per drink.
**Liquid sunflower lecithin is the key to creating a stable suspension of oil in liquid/emulsification here, accept no substitutes.
RSO-infused Simple Syrup
1. Bring water to a boil in the saucepan;
2. Turn off heat and whisk sugar into the hot water until sugar is dissolved completely;
3. Let cool slightly, then carefully pour the syrup into a heat-tolerant container safe for blending with an immersion blender. If using a high-speed blender, pour into the blender pitcher;
4. Blend RSO and 1/8th tsp. of liquid sunflower lecithin into the hot syrup until most of the oil specks dissolve. If the oil specks remain stubborn, you can add it back to the saucepan and heat it slightly (the gentlest warmth and stirring should do the trick);
5. Once hot, it’ll foam like crazy which means the sunflower lecithin is creating a stable suspension/emulsion;
6. Scrape down the oil that sticks to the sides of the container as you blend;
7. When most of the oil specks have dissipated, use the glass stirring rod to break up the foam;
8. Let the syrup cool fully. Label clearly as containing cannabis and at what dosage
1. Put ice in a Collins or rocks glass;
2. Fill the glass with sparkling water;
3. Top with 1 oz. RSO-infused simple syrup;
4. Garnish and enjoy

These days, cannabis can be consumed any number of ways – from smoking and vaping, which are some of the most common methods; to topicals, capsules, and even inhalers. Today, we’ll be discussing edibles, another fun way to get high that has also been growing in popularity over the last couple decades. Among the most sought-after type of edibles, are cannabis gummies.
Currently, cannabis gummies are trending big time. Not only do they offer many advantages that smoking simply does not, such as added discretion and no carcinogens, but for most users, they also provide a much more potent and long-lasting high.
How Cannabis Gummies Work
Edibles affect our bodies much differently than smoking or vaping. This is because, just like anything else that goes through our digestive systems, pot edibles need to metabolize before the effects can be felt. It does not provide an instant high like the aforementioned alternatives do, and it can take anywhere from 30 minutes to 2 hours for edibles to kick in, but the effects last much longer.
Food and supplements need to be processed by the liver, meaning more of the cannabinoid will be filtered out of your system because of the slower absorption time. There are also some more specific factors that impact the onset and intensity of the effects, such as the blend compounds consumed or a person’s metabolism and tolerance. Take THC for example; whether you’re consuming Delta 8 or Delta 9, the body processes all tetrahydrocannabinols the same, by converting them to a metabolite known as 11-hydroxy-THC.
This process is known as first-pass metabolism. According to neuroscientist and medical cannabis adviser, Dr. Adie Rae, “The liver is responsible for this transformation, and specifically, the drug-metabolizing enzyme known as cytochrome P2C9 or CYP2C9. Even when you smoke, your liver still sees some delta-9 and turns it into 11-hydroxy-THC, but you get way more 11-OH when you eat cannabis.”
There are numerous benefits to choosing edibles over smokeables, mainly the impact on your health. When you smoke – anything, cannabis included – you’re exposing your body to carcinogens and other harmful chemicals. Another reason people might choose edibles is because of the long-lasting effects. If you’re using cannabis to manage a chronic condition like ongoing pain, anxiety, etc., it may be easier for some people to just eat a gummy or two every few hours rather than searching for a place to smoke or vape (which are becoming increasingly limited for the record).
The Research on 11-hydroxy-THC
Although limited, the research we do have indicates that 11-hydroxy-THC is considerably more potent than delta-9 THC, which is one of the strongest of the existing, marketable THCs, and also the most popular so it’s used as a baseline for comparing all the other cannabinoids. Some studies claim that 11-hydroxy-THC is up to 7 times more potent than delta 9 THC.
Back in the 1970s, 11-hydroxy-THC was initially found in radiolabled THC, which was utilized in labs to allow researchers to better study these compounds. Radiolabled THC (which yes, is radioactive) behaves just like regular THC but it allows scientists to see where all the metabolites go once it’s broken down within the body. This is how 11-hydroxy-THC was discovered. At the time, very little 11-OH-THC was available, for obvious reasons, so for a very long time only small animal studies could be conducted.

Once they had the ability create this compound on a larger scale, in a lab, seminal studies were launched to characterize the effects of 11-OH-THC in humans. Numerous studies of delta 11 taken intravenously showed it was not only more potent, but onset of effects was much quicker than other forms of THC also administered the same way.
Why Edibles Don’t Work for Everyone
Because edibles can be so discreet, potent, and beneficial, many people find themselves sorely disappointment when they take some and realize they don’t work for them. Obviously there is no exact number on this, but even in my personal life I’ve met quite a few people who say they don’t feel anything when they use edibles, myself included.
Ok, to be fair, I wouldn’t say I don’t feel anything… but I definitely don’t experience any type of psychoactive effects. When I use edibles, I feel really tired, lazy, sluggish, and hungry… but not stoned. Estimates indicate that anywhere from 10-15% of cannabis user do NOT experience the desired effects from cannabis edibles, and we can thank our intricately complicated digestive systems for that.
Research shows that the effectiveness of cannabinoids administered orally can vary based on several different factors. Generally speaking, when people are unable to process cannabis edibles it can be narrowed down to one of two complications: either how we digest and absorb the food we eat, or how we metabolize it.
Dosing and How to Avoid Taking Too Much
When it comes to edibles, it’s easy to go overboard. Because it takes so much longer to notice the effects, a lot of people end up eating more than they should, thinking that the edibles aren’t working, then get surprised when all that THC finally kicks in. According to statistical surveys, the overwhelming majority of ER visits associated with cannabis are because of edibles, and considering how they work in the body, it’s not hard to see why.
Whether you make them yourself or buy them at the dispensary, if you want to avoid having any of these issues yourself, remember the adjunct “less is more”. That’s very true when it comes to cannabis edibles, especially if you’re a novice user. It’s also important to bear in mind that edibles don’t affect everyone in the same way. Some people are more sensitive to 11-hydroxy-THC than others. Those people will experience edibles in a much more powerful way than people whose bodies are more resistant to the compound.
If you’re new to edibles, or cannabis in general, you should definitely start with a low dose and work your way up. Start with five to ten milligrams, and if you don’t feel much after about 1 hour, take a little more, and a little more, and so on.
Cannabis Gummies and Drug Testing
Because cannabis gummies work so differently in the body than smoking, many people wonder if they could pass a drug test when using only edibles. Short answer, is no… edibles will still cause you to fail a drug test. Whether you’re smoking or ingesting the THC, it’s still getting in your system.
As a matter of fact, it’s been theorized that because of how the body processes edibles, THC might be detected in your system for even longer than if you smoked or vaped it. But again, that’s just a theory so it’s hard to say for sure. Regardless, check out some timelines for how long different kinds of drug test can detect cannabis:
Blood: 3-4 hours
Saliva: 24-72 hours
Urine: 3-30 days
Hair: Up to 90 days
How to Make Your Own Cannabis Gummies
1 cup water or juice (juice for more flavor)

There are a plethora of ways and methods of consuming cannabis, and everyone has their preferences when it comes to this. Some people prefer to use a vaporizer, some people prefer to smoke a joint, some people prefer to eat edibles, some people prefer to drink from infused drinks, and some people may even prefer to use cream. Each method will slightly alter the way the cannabis reacts with your body. Cannabis edibles have their own authentic buzz that they cause, unlike any other. Not only that, they are usually considered to be one of the more healthy ways to enjoy weed. Healthline writes:
“Smoking cannabis has also been associated with lung inflammation, bronchitis, and even impaired brain function…In contrast, edible cannabis products have not been shown to negatively affect lung health or cancer risk…Therefore, if you’re concerned about the possible health risks associated with smoking cannabis, you may want to use edible cannabis products as an alternative.”
However, there’s more to eating edibles or, more specifically, cannabis brownies than only the health benefits. When you digest cannabis through your stomach it hits you in an entirely different way to when you vape or smoke it. When cannabis is smoked or vaped, it enters the lungs and then finds its way into the blood. It is then carried to the endocannabinoid system and around the body to take its effect. Once the cannabis reaches the blood cells, the effects are essentially imminent. The whole process usually takes a few minutes in the case of smoking or vaping weed. This whole high experience can then last 1 or 2 hours. However, if you’re ingesting cannabis, the whole process is elongated. With edibles, It usually takes around 30-60 minutes to kick in and then, when it does, it can last for 3-6 hours. The cannabinoids take far longer to enter the blood through the stomach than through the lungs. The benefits are, you don’t have to inhale it.
The key to any cannabis edible is decarboxylation. In fact, the key to enjoying cannabis all together is decarbing. Many people genuinely believe that if you eat raw weed buds it will get you stoned and, don’t worry, if that’s you, you’re not alone. The short truth is that it won’t. But the longer explanation is that THC – which is the psychoactive substance in cannabis – is not activated unless it is heated. This heating process is also known as decarboxylation. Homestead And Chill writes:
“When a cannabis plant is growing or freshly harvested, the cannabinoids found within the flower trichomes contain an extra carboxyl ring or group (COOH) attached to their molecular chain. The process of decarboxylating cannabis removes that carboxyl group from the cannabinoid molecule. This process is what effectively transforms THCA into active THC”
THC is a psychoactive cannabinoid that triggers the well known high effect that cannabis gives. In order to cause decarboxylation and, in consequence THC, you need to heat the cannabis first. With joints or vapes, this means heating or burning it. In the case of edibles, it means putting it in the oven. But before we do that, let’s first properly dissect what you will need to make the most delicious cannabis brownies ever.
What You Need
This recipe will be ideal for 10 friends. No one will be left wanting after one of these crazy brownies. This is a list of what you will need:
5 grams of marijuana (1 gram per person)
100 grams of butter
1 cup of sugar (1 cup = 250 ml)
½ a cup of flour
200 grams of milk chocolate
How To Make Them
Follow these key steps and, by the end, you’ll have some delicious brownies to share with your friends or eat all by yourself (if you’re that way inclined). As I mentioned before, you can’t just throw raw cannabis buds in a mixing pot and hope for the best. You need to first give time and heat to the cannabis in order to unlock it. Don’t forget this crucial step.
Step 1 – First things first, preheat the oven to 250 Farhenheit. Then, get a baking sheet and spread the cannabis evenly on it. Use a grinder to ensure the bud is evenly ground. Put in the oven and bake for 45 minutes.
Step 2 – In a well-sized saucepan, melt the butter on a low heat. Then, after the butter is melted, you can add the already oven-baked weed, and simmer the mixture for 40 minutes more. This will make the crucial weed butter that will be an integral ingredient for your magical brownies.
Step 3 – Now, when this is done, sieve this mixture into a glass bowl. This will be used later. The reason we sieve it, is so that we can discard any of the cannabis solids that are left over. These are no longer needed.
Step 4 – Now, back to the heat. Preheat the oven again, but this time, to 360 Fahrenheit.. Then, find a baking pan that is big enough to cook the brownies in and grease it with cooking spray.
Step 5 – Now for the sweet stuff. Get the milk chocolate and begin to break it up into small pieces. Then, place the pieces in a glass bowl and sit it on top of a pan of boiling water. Mix until the chocolate is melted and then take it off the heat. Now you have delicious melted chocolate.
Step 6 – Now you can add the previously prepared cannabis butter to the melted chocolate and mix it all together. Don’t forget to also add the eggs at this point too. Make sure they are well mixed in. Then add the flour too, mixing in also.
Step 7 – Now you can break up the white chocolate into small pieces and throw it in the mixture. These will be the delicious little add-ons that will make these brownies even more delicious.
Step 8 – Now that the mixture is all well blended together, you can carefully pour it into the baking pan. Place it in the oven and bake for 30 minutes. Once 30 minutes is up you can poke a knife in the brownies to see if the knife is hot – if it isn’t, then heat them for 5-10 minutes longer.
Step 9 – Now for the final step. Cut the brownies into even pieces, and enjoy.
Don’t Forget These Key Tips
In front of you, you have some amazing and delicious cannabis brownies. However, these things are powerful and you don’t want to waste them. You want to use them to their full potential. Here’s how.
Potency – As mentioned earlier, cannabis edibles can be especially potent. Especially in comparison with vapes or joints. Handle these brownies with care. Don’t bite off more than you can chew straight away. Half a brownie is more than enough to start you off.
Accessorise – A brownie is great on its own, but how about with a scoop of delicious vanilla ice cream? It can seriously make all the difference. Plus, the ice cream and the sugar can mellow out the high a little bit too.
Friends or alone – Whether you decide to eat the brownies with friends or alone, make sure you have enough time and fun activities to help you on your high journey.
There are a ton of cannabis brownie recipes out there, but here’s another one. And, lucky for you, this one happens to be one of the simplest and most delicious. Go give them a try and drop us a line in the comment section to let us know how they turned out!

Easter is coming and the chocolate eggs and bunnies are out to play. Easter is a heart-warming opportunity to see loved ones, do good deeds and share enjoyment with your nearest and dearest. Or, if that’s not quite up your street, Easter can quite easily just be a time for putting your feet up, eating loads of chocolate and enjoying not being at work. Whatever you do during the Easter holidays, chocolate will be near you whether you like it or not.
But what about the chocolates for cannabis lovers? Well, today we’ll be discovering the top 5 cannabis-infused chocolates that deserve recognition this Easter. Perhaps you can purchase one of these for someone you love, or even for yourself this holiday.
Who said Easter fun can’t be for adults?There are plenty of adult-style ways of enjoying the holiday, so check out these options for a super high, super happy, celebration. We’re all over the world of cannabis, with news and fun stories everyday, which you can keep up with by subscribing to THC Weekly Newsletter. You’ll also get direct access to deals on vapes, edibles, and other cannabis smoking paraphernalia, along with offers for cannabinoid compounds like HHC-O, Delta 8, Delta 9 THC, Delta-10 THC, THCO, THCV, THCP & HHC, which are in our “Best-of” lists.
If you’re like me, you might forget how and why we celebrate the majority of our international holidays. In fact, it was international name day only a few moments ago and it completely passed me. At christmas or easter or even the newly discovered international name day I usually just enjoy seeing family and, of course, drinking a little more than usual. However, perhaps there is some importance in understanding the history and culture behind these holidays. Especially before we start purchasing some cannabis-infused chocolate goodies. So, what is easter all about?
Easter is celebrated around the same time each year, but not always the same day. Easter takes place on the first sunday after the full moon – which usually means on or after the 21st March. This year, Easter finds itself on the 17th April. There’s a few elements to Easter celebrations, and they all revolve around the anniversary of Jesus Christ rising from the dead after being killed three days prior.
Different regions/religions may celebrate easter on different days. For example, while Easter in the United States was last Sunday, on the 17th, Easter in places like Greece, Eastern Europe, and Russia, where orthodox Christianity is the more predominant, Easter is today, Sunday the 24th.
Easter celebrations can last around a week, depending on how seriously an individual wants to take it. Here is the different parts of Holy Week.
Palm Sunday is the sunday before easter sunday. This is the beginning of easter celebrations. It was the day that Jesus supposedly arrived in Jerusalem, with crowds throwing palm branches at his feet in celebration.
Maundy Thursday is the thursday before easter sunday. This was when Jesus had the last supper with his disciples. They sat breaking bread, conversing and drinking some gorgeous old red wine.
Good Friday is the friday before easter sunday. This was the sad day of Jesus’ death. Jesus Christ was put on the cross and crucified. This is a day of remembering his suffering.
Easter Sunday is a day of joy and euphoria. This was the day when Jesus resurrected, after being left for dead in a tomb guarded by Roman soldiers.
Why Easter Eggs?
Whether your’e a religious person or not, there’s something pleasant in being reminded why certain holidays happen and where certain rituals come from. It’s very easy to forget why we celebrate anything at all. But now you’ve been reminded about the easter holidays, you might still be thinking: what’s the deal with easter eggs? Well, the BBC writes
“An egg is a symbol of new life. For Christians, Easter eggs are used as a symbol for the resurrection of Jesus.”
Of course now easter eggs have been commercialised into being yummy chocolate eggs. However, there’s still the reminisce of this original belief that eggs highlight Jesus’ return to life after being thought to be dead.
Nonetheless, easter eggs are great and when you’ve got a sweet tooth they can be even better. But this article isn’t about just normal chocolate, today we’re going to be looking at the finest cannabis chocolate out there. It’s hard to decipher between the good and the bad, but we’re going to try.
Top 5 Cannabis Chocolates for Easter
Without further ado, here are the CBD Tester’s most promising chocolates for this year’s easter celebrations. They’re mouth watering, they’re creative, they’re beautiful and…they’re full of cannabis. Enjoy.
1 – Coda Signature
Product: Cream & Crumble from Coda Signature
Cannabis: 100mg THC & CBD
“Milky white chocolate blends with tart sour cream and lemon, speckled with spiced crumble to give this handcrafted edible a unique combination of intensity and richness”
Coda Signature are a US based company that pride themselves in beautifully designed and crafted cannabis-infused sweets and treats. The Cream & Crumble chocolate bar has the delicious taste of cheesecake, condensed into a bar form. This includes hints of lemon, spiced crumble, tart sour cream and Ecuadorian white chocolate. There is a total of 100mg of THC and CBD in a 20 pieced bar. Therefore, there is 5mg of THC and CBD per serving. The product is good for boosting mood, binge watching and zoning out. The flavour and thought behind this product is evident.
2 – Body & Mind Botanicals
Product: UK’s First Cannabis Easter Egg by Body & Mind Botanicals
“This oeuf of wonderment features a marbled outer shell made of a child-repelling 71% dark chocolate, and when you’ve devoured the egg, inside you’ll find dark chocolate choccy buttons infused with organic cold pressed cannabis oil”
Body & Mind Botanicals are one of the only UK companies who provide their own manufactured CBD products. Their aim, single handedly, is to push the UK’s cannabis industry to somewhere near Americas. Whilst their products do not contain THC, they are pushing the limits with their CBD products. This is proven by their creation of the first ever UK cannabis easter egg. The egg has a beautiful milk chocolate design with white chocolate paint splats. Inside there are secret dark chocolate buttons, which are infused with CBD. This product prides itself on helping with sleep deprivation, anxiety, stress, moods and infections. Whilst it may not seem like a ground-breaking product, in the UK – it certainly is.
3 – Ego Brands
Product: Strawberry White Chocolate Bar from Evergreen Organix
Cannabis: 100mg THC
“A light blend of our creamy white chocolate mixed with natural strawberry pieces”
Evergreen Organix is a marijuana edible producer based in Nevada. They are family made and run, and believe in quality and care. Their strawberry white chocolate bar is handcrafted, and deserves to be on this list. The light pinkish look of the chocolate is dreamy. There are 10 small segments in one bar, which means that each piece contains 10mg THC. This is nothing to be sniffed at. These chocolates are strong. Whilst many producers make chocolate in bulk, Ego brands ensure their chocolate is made with consistency in flavour and potency. This could be the difference for you this easter, or for someone you care about.
4 – Satori Chocolates
Product: Highbush Blueberries in Dark Chocolate from Santori
Cannabis: 100mg THC
“Highbush Blueberries In Dark Chocolate are microdosable edibles with a satisfying chocolate and berry flavor”
Satori chocolates come in small and cute chocolate balls, unlike the rest of the products on this list. The flavour is a stunning combination of dark chocolate and highbush blueberries. Not only do they taste great, but it’s also unlikely that any young child will want to try them as dark chocolate isn’t often popular with younger people. Does that count as a positive? Probably. There are around 50 little chocolate balls, all containing 2% THC. Whilst these delicious nuggets of chocolate might seem harmless, be careful not to have too many in one sitting – the potency adds up.
5 – DIY
Cannabis: Up to you
If you’re feeling extra adventurous this easter, why not try making your own cannabis easter chocolates. Making the egg-shaped mould might seem too ambitious, but the rest is simple enough. Decarbing cannabis and throwing it in a delicious chocolate mix doesn’t take too long at all. And the rewards are a mouth orgasm.
There you have it – some of the most exciting and creative cannabis chocolates to feast your eyes on this easter. From all of us here at CBD Testers, we wish you a happy holiday.

Mike Tyson is certainly a man who wears many hats: World-renowned boxer, cannabis entrepreneur, husband and father, podcast host, actor, cultural icon, and at one time in his life, a man who bit the ear off another man’s head, a piece of it anyway. The 1997 fight when Iron Mike Tyson took a bite of Evander Holyfield’s ear is perhaps the most bizarre and memorable moment in boxing history.
Fast-forward a couple of decades and now, Mike is putting a new and somewhat comedic spin on that gory incident from his past by introducing a new line of ear-shaped edibles: Mike Bites, and they come complete with a small chunk of ‘cartilage’ missing, for the sake of keeping things accurate. Although “Mike Bites” sounds like more of a warning rather than the name of sweet, delicious candy, that’s exactly what you’re getting with this product. A treat that packs a punch. And don’t worry, Mike released a statement saying that “These ears actually taste good!” Likely because they are made with pot-infused sugary goodness, as opposed to blood and flesh
Celebrity products are fun, but not many are as memorable as these ear-shaped gummies. We’re excited to give them a try when they become available. In the meantime, stay current on everythingimportant happening in the industry by subscribing to the THC Weekly Newsletter.

We’ve also got standout offers on cannabinoids, like HHC-O, Delta 8, Delta 9 THC, Delta-10 THC, THCO, THCV, THCP & HHC, which won’t kill your bank account. Head over to our “Best-of” lists to get these deals, and remember to enjoy responsibly!
About the fight
Evander Holyfield was a four-time heavyweight champion when he and Tyson fought. The infamous ear-biting incident was actually the pair’s second fight, as they had faced off seven months prior at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. In the first match, Holyfield won during the sixth round.
Even though Holyfield won the first fight, was still the underdog going into the next fight; and despite being a four-time champ, Holyfield had been uninspiring in his fights after returning from a brief retirement in 1995. During their highly anticipated second match, Tyson was angry because Holyfield hit him with a few headbutts, and he retaliated by biting off a section of his right ear and spitting onto the canvas.
Iron Mike was immediately disqualified, but the occurrence marked what probably is still to this day, the strangest, most memorable, and perhaps the most gruesome interaction in the history of boxing. Interestingly enough, Holyfield and Tyson are on ok terms these days, and Tyson even gave the speech when Holyfield was inducted into the Boxing Hall of Fame.
Tyson 2.0 and Mike Bites
Mike Tyson initially started selling cannabis-based products under his Tyson Holistic brand in 2016. Over the years, he has launched several cannabis-related ventures, notably Futurola, his popular brand of papers and prerolls. Additionally, his well-known and wildly successful pot farm in SoCal, Tyson Ranch, generates a reported monthly revenue of roughly $500 thousand.
Tyson 2.0 is Mike’s newest company, and the brand under which “Mike Bites,” will be released. Online, Tyson 2.0 describes itself as “a premier cannabis company formed with legendary boxer, entrepreneur and icon Mike Tyson.” The company’s mission is “to produce innovative, high-quality cannabis products known for purity, precision, and wide accessibility. In 2021, the company expanded its sales to over 100 locations in California.”
Each red, ear-shaped gummy contains 10 milligrams of THC – in compliance with California Bureau of Cannabis Control regulations, which is where the gummies will be sold. You can order them from his website if you live in a legal state, or find them in dispensaries around California.
The former boxer’s use of the plant as medicine dates back to two decades ago. “I was an opiate user most of my life. I’m bipolar, tripolar, and manic-depressive. I’m all these damn things. So I took all these pills and got worse. I became obese, I became a zombie. So I changed my whole life, I started smoking and I didn’t use opiates anymore. I lost 45 pounds. My life turned around,” he recounted in a 2019 interview with Weedmaps.
Also, Tyson recommends the use of cannabis in athletes: “I think all sportspeople should smoke marijuana if they choose to. I’m not pressuring anybody. I’m just telling people who are like me, who experience pain from a long career, [to consider] cannabis.”
A little more about edibles
Cannabis edibles are trending big time. Not only do they offer many advantages that smoking simply does not, such as discretion, no carcinogens, and more dosage control; but for most users, they also provide a much more potent and long-lasting high.
But why do cannabis edibles affect our bodies so differently than smoking or vaping? Just like anything else that goes through our digestive systems, cannabis edibles need to metabolize before the effects can be felt. It’s not an instant sensation like the aforementioned alternatives would be and it can take anywhere from 30 minutes to 2 hours to kick in, but the effects last much longer.
When eaten, the body converts all THCs into 11-hydroxy-THC, which is a very potent endocannabinoid. So, what’s the science behind this? To summarize, it all boils down to two factors: the drug-metabolizing enzymes in your GI tract, and blood flow to the liver. When you first eat a cannabis edible, various enzymes in the GI tract begin digesting the food. From that point, blood flow from the GI tract goes through the liver where all these enzymes are metabolized, then the blood continues to general circulation. When the metabolites are formed, that’s when you get the effects of 11-hydroxy-THC.
These edibles are not yet available for sale, but should be very soon. Hopefully in time for my next trip to California so I can try them out for myself. Remember, here at CBD Testers/Cannadelics, we love products – whether they come from a dispensary or online retailer, we love to learn about what’s out there and share our findings with you.

Everyone wants their weed these days, with all different ways to consume the plant. Some want to smoke it, some want to eat it in edibles, some only want to vape it, some take their bong hits, some rub it on their skin, some put oil under their tongue, and some swallow down tinctures or pills. And if we really want to get down to it, some use suppositories, or nasal sprays, or skin patches as well. At one time in life, things were simpler. And one of the most basic uses of cannabis, was as a tea. Today, you can still enjoy cannabis as a nice hot cup of tea, by brewing it yourself at home.
A good old-fashioned weed tea is one of the best ways to enjoy cannabis, whether for medical or recreational purposes. Read on for a great general recipe on how to make it.

The history of cannabis tea
Cannabis has shown up in different time periods, often used in similar ways for treating different things. There are records going back as far as 2737 B.C. in China, when Emperor Shen Neng prescribed the tea to treat gout, rheumatism, malaria, and for poor memory.Around that time, use of cannabis as a medicine spread throughout Asia and the Mid East, into Africa, and India as well. Back then, cannabis could be used for tons of purposes, like during childbirth, ear infections, pain relief and for stress.
There are references in in ancient Tai religious texts suggesting that if cannabis is steeped and consumed it can lead to spiritual enlightenment, which speaks to both use with psychological issues, as well as recreational use. Another interesting story to come out of that general region, is of Chinese surgeon Hua Tuo, who gained recognition well beyond China, and who was the first (as far as we know) medical doctor to combine cannabis tea with other things like sedatives or alcohol, for the purpose of surgery, from around 208 AD.
In Ancient Greece, both cannabis tea and paste were used to treat animals and people. For example, rags were soaked in cannabis tea and then wrapped around open wounds on legs of horses, marking one of the earliest uses of cannabis as a veterinary medicine.
India also has a tradition with cannabis tea, though its version is a little milkier, and called bhang. Bhang was used for religious and medical purposes, seen as a treatment for headaches, insomnia, sunstroke, lack of appetite, gastro disorders, and pain, including for childbirth. The spiced, milky cannabis drink is not only still drank today, but was the basis for the wording in the Single Convention on Narcotic Drugs from 1961, which keeps the drink in a legal loophole status.
In Ancient Egypt, an ancient text called the Ebers Papyrus from 1550 BC describes a prepertation in which cannabis is made into a tea that’s used for medical purposes. There even seemed to be some kind of understanding of a conversion that had to happen from THCA to THC in order for different benefits to be gained. And this without having any understnidng of how cannabinoids work. In Egypt, cannabis tea was even used in suppositories for the treatment of severe pain and inflammation from hemorrhoids.
When Columbus landed in South America in 1492, he brought with him hemp rope, which introduced it to the natives at the time. It became so important in America, that by 1619, the Jamestown Virginia colony had enacted a grow law to ensure that all farmers produced hemp. It was adopted directly into Western medicine in the late 1930’s by William O’Shaughnessy, who incorporated what he learned from being a part of the British East India Company, into his medical practice, even releasing the publication Bengal Dispensatory and Pharmacopoeia in 1842.
Benefits of cannabis tea
One of the main benefits of cannabis tea, is that as an edible, it goes through the digestive tract rather than being absorbed into the lungs, and this means the converting of THC to 11-hydroxy-THC which lasts significantly longer (4-6+ hours) than standard smoking (1-2 hours). It’s also thought that the water solubility of 11-hydroxy-THC allows it to pass through the blood brain barrier more easily. Plus, as a tea, it can be slowly ingested to get dosing correct, or as a way to microdose over time.
As an edible in general, it comes with the benefit of not being smoked, and not coming with all the issues that smoking comes with. Though this can be horribly misunderstood, it’s not about smoking tobacco which causes the smoking-related health problems, it’s the lighting something on fire and breathing it in. We know this as smoke inhalation, and it gets tied to smoking cigarettes so frequently, as smoking cigarettes is essentially forcing a body to go through constant smoke inhalation. Drinking a tea bypasses this danger entirely.
One detraction, is that, much like other edibles, cannabis tea can take time to set in, since it must make it through the digestive tract. However, as a liquid, it can sometimes start a bit sooner, with some saying as quick as 30 minutes after ingestion. This would make it one of the faster working edibles.
Brew your own cannabis tea
We know a few things about cannabis. We know its fat soluble and not water soluble which is important to know when making a cannabis tea, as simply boiling the cannabis in water won’t give the cannabinoids anything to attach to, making it difficult to make a good tea. Even simply boiling it will not be enough to decarboxylate the plant if that’s the desire (though it doesn’t have to be).
The decarboxylation process converts THCA to THC, which allows for more psychoactive effects. But THCA also has plenty of health value, so whether the cannabis is decarbed or not, is your personal preference. Tea can be made by simply boiling the cannabis, by boiling the cannabis with an oil, or to make an infused tea with already made cannabis oil or tincture.
General recipe – This recipe is basic and calls for the following. It can easily be modified based on what the user is specifically going for. For example, cannabis can be decarbed first, or not. An infused oil can be added, or not. And additional ingredients like honey and lemon can vary, as well as whether those products – like honey – are also infused.
1 gram – ground cannabis
1 tablespoon – unsalted butter or coconut oil (whichever you prefer)
1 teabag (any kind)
4 cups of water
Any ingredients desired for flavor – honey, milk, sugar, cinnamon, etc.
Cheesecloth or a fine strainer
And the steps for use are the following:
1 – Take four cups of water and boil, and once boiling, add tablespoon of butter or coconut oil and let it melt completely, this will allow the cannabinoids to bind to something in the liquid.
2 – Once dissolved, add in ground cannabis into the boiling liquid, and then lower the temperature to a simmer.
3 – Simmer the mixture for 15 minutes. This time period can be lengthened at lower simmering temperatures, in order to preserve more compounds of the plant which can be hurt by high heat.
4 – When simmering is done, strain out the cannabis matter. You can use cheesecloth, by securing it around the top of the bowl being used with a rubber-band or string. Pour the mixture through the cheesecloth so the weed matter stays on the cloth and the liquid ends up in the bowl/jar/teapot. A metal strainer can be used, but use one with fine straining, as bigger holes will let more particles through.
5 – Add in your teabag for flavor, and any other extra ingredients like mint, lemon, or honey. Not everyone will love the taste of cannabis tea straight, so adding in flavoring might be a good idea for a more enjoyable experience. Steep for a few minutes. This method involves a minor decarb in letting the cannabis simmer with the oil for a period of time, but not at the higher temperatures an oven would use. Conversely, decarbing the cannabis first would create a stronger THC tea, rather than a THCA tea. Or, to use a butter or oil already infused with decarbed cannabis.
There are plenty of great products to be bought in life, but sometimes if you really want something done to your own specifications, it means doing it yourself. Cannabis tea is easy enough to make, and can be made by anyone looking to get just medical properties, or for a drink to make them feel really good. The best part of DIY processes? You control the outcome. Enjoy!

Thankfully, overdosing on cannabis is not really physiologically possible, and there is a lot one can do to mitigate the […]

A little on Valentine’s Day
We’re all familiar with the holiday, whether we like it or not. Heart candies that say ‘Be Mine’, Valentine cards handed out to loved ones, special time with that special someone. And for those among us without someone to cuddle up to, it’s a night on the couch, cursing ourselves for ending it with that last person, and sneering at those who are happy and in love. Let’s be honest, it’s true.
Well, if you’re one of those who feels more brokenhearted than celebratory on Valentine’s Day, just remember, it didn’t start out as a love holiday, but as a feast holiday! Yup, St. Valentine (and there were more than one apparently) wasn’t a love martyr, he was an actual martyr. Though there are different stories related to the different St. Valentines about what exactly they did to earn this martyrdom, there are a couple versions that fit the holiday. One includes St. Valentine curing a blind girl, and then receiving a written message from her before being executed. And another has to do with the guy performing wedding ceremonies for soldiers who were told they could not marry.
Originally started in 496AD, under Pope Gelasius I, the Feast of Valentine’s Day was to celebrate St. Valentine of Rome, who died in 269AD. It didn’t become a holiday about love until the 14th or 15th century when Medieval ideas of love with knights and nobility became popular. Somehow, it also tied into lovebirds which come out in the spring, and sit together in pairs tweeting their songs.
Over the years, these ideas of love have vastly taken over, with the entire holiday now about celebrating that special someone in your life, and literally no one talking about feasting. It has become commonplace in this day and age to celebrate the holiday by writing notes to loved ones; with hearts; candies – often with sayings of love written on them; and good old Cupid, the winged child-man who by folklore goes around hitting people with arrows to make them fall in love.
Valentine’s day is celebrated all over the world, but nowhere is it a public holiday. No one cares how in love you are; you still have to go work, sorry. Even with its basis as a Christian feast day, it’s only celebrated by certain sects these days, like Anglicans and Lutherans who still hold it as a feast day. It’s also celebrated by the Eastern Orthodox Church, but not on February 14! Instead, they celebrate it on July 6 AND July 30th in honor of two different St. Valentines.
Stoner Valentine’s Day Ideas
My last boyfriend got me a bong with red hearts painted on it for the first Valentine’s Day we were together. I didn’t see it coming, as we had not been together long, but I thought it was the coolest gift ever. It broke not too long after when it was accidentally knocked over, as bongs tend to do. And though it’s sad when any bong breaks, in this case it was fitting as he and I are no longer together. Even so, was a great gift at the time. For anyone looking for a way to surprise their loved one this holiday season, you can use that bong idea, or check out some other great stoner Valentine’s Day ideas that will make your partner even more glad they chose you.
Stoner Valentine’s Day Ideas – candy
It might not be a standard gift-giving holiday, but Valentine’s Day has certainly established itself as a time to buy special things for special people in your life. When it comes to the person you love the most, here are some ideas to get your Valentine’s Day going in full swing.
Everyone knows candy makes one of the best gifts for Valentine’s Day. Whether its small chalky hearts emblazoned with ‘I love you’ or ‘Be my Valentine’, or a heart-shaped box filled with chocolates, Valentine’s Day is all about the sweet tooth, and a way to tell your sweetheart how sweet you think they are. It doesn’t technically matter if the candy has weed in it or not. Without weed it’s way better for when the munchies kick in. But for the true stoner couple, that candy should be as high-inducing as your relationship. Pop over to your local dispensary to see what specific Valentine’s treats they have, or better yet, make your own!

Pick one, or make your own variation with ingredients you know your special someone loves. The only thing you’ll need to complete the project are some heart-shaped cookie cutters!
Or, check out this recipe for heart-shaped cannabis-infused lollipops, another great way to create your own edibles that say ‘I love you’. After all, it’s one thing to go out and buy the candy, it’s another thing to provide your loved one with delicious pot candy made out of a labor of love.
