Blessed Edibles Overview:
Blessed Edibles is a company that is dedicated to creating craft cannabis edibles for individuals living a healthy, active life style. There are a variety of different products that they produce from THC capsules to beverages, and everything in between. Blessed Edibles does a great job of creating some incredible edibles. The Dark Chocolate Sea Salt Float Bar tasted really good, and provided enjoyable medical effects.
Accessing Blessed Edibles:
Blessed Edibles is a mainstay in the Toronto cannabis community. They are one vendor who is regularly at the Green Market. (not missing a single one since the summer) The Blessed Edibles’ website says that their products are sold in select dispensaries, but I was told recently at their booth that this wasn’t the case. With the ongoing dispensary issues, many dispensaries are reluctant to carry any kind of “weed edibles” anymore. Much of their sales come from the Green Market Toronto, but the company also sells edibles online through specific channels, using couriers to ship directly to customers. If you would like your local dispensary to carry Blessed Edibles, next time ask your bud tender or the manager to reach out to Blessed Edibles. Contact through Website, or Instagram.
Blessed Edibles Pricing & Selection:
The Dark Chocolate Sea Salt Float Bar retails for $20 and is infused with 600mg of canna cocoa butter. The company offers several different types of chocolate (different sativa/indica ratios, CBD/THC splits). Each are the same format and look identical, other than the packaging, which I liked. With the chocolate infused with 600mg of canna cocoa butter for $20, this is a good deal to get multiple doses.
Blessed Edibles also produces a variety of other cannabis infused products. These products include Oatmeal Chocolate Love, CBD Cookies, CBD Dark Chocolate Sea Salt Float Bar, Blessed Brownies, Fruit THC Gummies, cannabis capsules, baked donuts, infused kombucha, and topicals. These products contain between 100 & 600 mg of infused butter, with THC/CBD and retail for $5 – $20 each.
Unique to Blessed Edibles:
The company’s founder, Angelina, and her overall ethos are the most unique thing about the company. Amongst a backdrop of mellow, fun and lighthearted community of people, Angelina sticks out like a sore thumb. In a good way! She is an elite martial artist who travels internationally to compete, and her products are an embodiment of herself. All of her products tout health benefits, and are said to be geared to athletes who use them for exercising and recovering. This is a really interesting approach, and a great product differentiator in a market saturated by sweet treats.
Dark Chocolate Sea Salt Float Bar Taste:
The chocolate tasted amazing. I love dark chocolate, and this was no exception. There was no taste of cannabis whatsoever, so be careful where you leave it. (especially around kids) Not only does this product taste good, but it is vegan and gluten free. Not much more to say, excellent taste. I could eat the whole bar.
Dark Chocolate Sea Salt Float Bar Effects:
- I took one square (100mg infused) and felt nothing all night. It was on an empty stomach. Decided to try again tomorrow. I didn’t want to overdo it just in case it hit me later on. After this attempt, Blessed Edibles recommended taking the product with some food to help trigger your stomach to digest the edible.
- The next night, I took one and a half squares (approx. 150mg infused) at around 8:45PM, right before going into a concert (legendary rock band, Foreigner). I had just eaten a huge buffet, so I didn’t expect much effect, given what happened the previous night. An hour later, it hit. The medicated effects were fantastic for a concert, giving me a profound appreciation for the talent of the musicians.
Blessed Edibles uses an infused canna cocoa butter for their products, stating the percent concentration and weight of infused product used. This can be confusing for patients to determine the correct dosage, potentially thinking there is 100mg of THC in each square. With all products currently on the market, lab testing is not legally available, making it hard to have an industry standard for labeling between products. Blessed Edibles does tell you the percent concentration in the infused canna cocoa butter, allowing you to calculate your dose. This is further than other companies go, some will tell you the amount of keif used in a product, but nothing about the THC concentration of the keif. This can be misleading with keif only containing 20% – 50% THC, where people expect it to be higher. As for the Dark Chocolate Sea Salt Float Bar, it was very tasty and provided strong medication after consuming 1.5 squares of chocolate. I would recommend starting off with one square, if you have a low tolerance, and progressing from there.
