The Canna Chocolatier Overview:
The Canna Chocolatier is an artisanal chocolate company that makes cannabis (THC distillate) infused chocolates. A professional chocolatier makes all of The Canna Chocolatier’s products and each treat is individually dosed by hand. This approach insures each chocolate is effective in delivering the correct dose and tastes great.

Unique to The Canna Chocolatier:
The Canna Chocolatier was started to solve the 3 self-identified issues with the edible industry: 1. stale product 2. ineffective product and 3. bad tasting product. Thus, The Canna Chocolatier is the only edible company in Toronto producing artisanal filled chocolates and hollow molding. The chocolate maker went to school to be a chocolatier, so you know the products are top notch. They are also one of the only companies that individually dose each of their products by hand, with THC distillate. The majority of companies dose their whole batch of product, but when they stop mixing it, the distillate or shatter will separate. This is why each chocolate mold is dosed by hand and not mixed into the batch. This is done for accuracy and consistency, if not there will be an uneven dosage across the batch. The THC distillate is lab tested, prior to infusing, to ensure the potency of the products.
Creamy Caramel & Salted Pretzel Bits Smell, Texture, Taste:
The chocolates were presented beautifully in a custom cardboard box containing 500mg of THC in 4 pieces of chocolate. The Creamy Caramel & Salted Pretzel Bits looked stunning with swirls decorating the top of the chocolate. The caramel and pretzel bits were completely sealed within the chocolate without any visual indication from the outside.
The taste of the Creamy Caramel & Salted Pretzel Bits is unreal with a perfect balance between sweet and salty. The chocolate is very rich, with caramel filling and long pieces of pretzels adding a crunchy texture. There was a slight weedy, almost caramel taste, which was probably just a placebo taste because it was infused with distillate.
Creamy Caramel & Salted Pretzel Bits Effects:
I ingested the 200mg Creamy Caramel & Salted Pretzel Bits 1 hour after finishing a large family meal. When you have food in your stomach when you take an edible, the edible is diluted in your stomach and the effects are released more gradually. This all results in a longer experience that is less intense.
I enjoyed the Creamy Caramel & Salted Pretzel Bits at 8pm, with the medication making itself known an hour after ingestion. At 9:30 my eyes were starting to droop and my body felt nice and relaxed. I am a daily consumer with a high tolerance and found the effects were very calming, more of a body buzz. The chocolate wasn’t overpowering, but that was expected with food in my stomach. The effects lasted multiple hours, helping me doze off into a good night’s sleep.
