Fourth Of July Cannabis Chocolates

Fourth of July celebrations won’t be the same this year, but here’s something that can lift your spirits.

Southern California-based Platinum Cannabis Products, which produces a line of THC-infused chocolates that the website describes as “carefully crafted and palate-driven”,  is bringing a sweet limited edition surprise to cannabis lovers for the 4th of July holiday festivities.  The 20-serving sugar cookie-flavored white chocolate bar with popping candy and patriotic red, white, and blue sprinkles comes in a resealable pouch, packing 5mg of THC per serving.

Of course, if you are like me, a serving of chocolate is whatever size bar comes in the wrapper, so consumers should be careful to check the scored marks delineating each piece to make sure of proper dosage.  There is specific guidance for first-time users, those who haven’t had cannabis in a while, and those who are frequent users. I highly recommend adhering to this guidance, as this pop rock chocolate packs a punch.

I am no lover of white chocolate. In fact, I once jokingly-not-jokingly told my boyfriend that it was a deal-breaker for our relationship when he told me that his favorite cookie was macadamia nut with white chocolate chips. Perhaps it was the “sugar cookie” overtones or pleasant fizz of popping candy in PV’s “All American Chocolate Bar” reminding me of Fourth of July picnics past, but I found the treat quite palatable, with only a very slight “weedy” aftertaste that quickly dispersed. The treat was too sweet for my taste, as all white chocolates are, but as good as any I’ve tried, THC-infused or no.

 The dose of THC imparted an uplifted, noticeably enhanced state of awareness. Visual details came through more sharply and I had a sense of alertness that wasn’t touched by adrenaline like a coffee buzz. More like my dog raising her head to sniff the kabobs sizzling on the grill. In all, I found it quite an agreeable adjunct to a July picnic. Just make sure to keep that resealable pouch in the cooler with the hot dog buns and macaroni salad to keep it safe from the summer heat!
