In 3 words, describe your organization.
Always handmade, always.
What has been your biggest challenge and how your team has overcome it?
Cocoa and Cannabis have been staple crops for thousands of years. Notably, studies suggest, “combining cannabis with chocolate may enhance the mood-boosting, euphoric effects of both substances”. We didn’t want to compromise when it came to our 2 main ingredients. Luckily, we’ve been able to source full-spectrum cannabis from a farm with the highest cultivation and labor standards. Finding ethical chocolate has been a much bigger challenge. Rampant human rights and environmental abuses within the chocolate industry led us on a month's-long journey in search of cocoa we could be proud to use in our truffles. Finally, we were able to find a 100+ year old, family-owned and operated, chocolate company to provide us with delicious fair-trade cocoa.
What are some upcoming innovations/projects you are most excited for?
So much! New flavors, new products, new ideas. Could say a lot here but we’d rather show you…
Any future predictions/trends you foresee in your product category?
Gummies have dominated the edibles category in these (not so) early days of legalized cannabis. With more sophisticated and varied chocolate offerings we think consumers will get back to the culture’s roots—eating chocolate edibles.
