The bars come in 120mg & 12mg CBD dose, with the 50/50 being the exception with 60mg of THC & 60mg of CBD. This is also a pure CBD bar with 120mg of CBD called Simply CBD. The chocolate bars retail for $28 each online. The min bars contain 100mg of THC & 10mg CBD across the board, retailing for $15-$20 each.
Unique to EP Infusions:
EP Infusions distinguishes themselves from other edible companies through various aspects. The first and most noticeable is the beautiful, simple packaging. Under the packaging each product is hand made with THC distillate and CBD isolate. CBD is important to mitigate the adverse effect of over consumption. The majority of edibles don’t contain CBD, but it’s good to have for when patients with a lower tolerance will be consuming. With each product being hand made in small batches, they are marked with the batch number for easy tracking.
Blonde Bar Taste:
Wow these chocolates are good! It’s been 5 minutes and I’ve already wolfed down 4 squares as I contemplate the taste. The Blonde Bar is unlike any chocolate I’ve tasted before, this is from the smoked sea salt used and that they caramelized the white chocolate to get the wonderful colour. There is a surprising caramel taste without any caramel actually being added. The smoky flavour complements the chocolate well and masks any cannabis taste that may be present. The smoked sea salt also makes the chocolate pop on your taste buds.
Blonde Bar Effects:
EP Infusions did a great job on the packaging, but there was some confusion about the French only dosage. It took me a couple attempts, but I was able to figure it out. The whole bar contains 120mg of THC & 12mg of CBD, which breaks down into 5mg THC & 0.5 mg CBD per square. I broke myself off 8 squares for 40mg of THC & 4mg of CBD. I ate those over 20 minutes, 30 minutes after having the first piece I was starting to feel relaxed. The effects continued to build peaking an hour after eating. As the effects slowly started to diminish I started to feel tired (haven’t gotten too much sleep recently). Two hours after eating, I decided to smoke a bowl (to ensure I fell asleep) before lying down and drifting off for a couple hours of rest. I woke up in a slight daze, making me realize the effects were still kicking. This ensures a long duration of effects from the product, with its intended patient having a lower tolerance than someone like myself.
