Ahh thanks! Because we never felt comfortable compromising the nuanced complexities of chocolate’s 400+ flavor compounds, we’ve worked to develop our own proprietary full-spectrum cannabis distillate—containing all major and minor cannabinoids (CBC, CBG, CBN & d8-THC in the 2-6% range).
From an Oregon regulatory standpoint, a single-serving edible can contain up to 5mg of THC (up to 50mg per package.)
You may have questions and we’ve got answers. Not only are we dedicated to making high quality cannabis-infused edibles, we’re also here to make sure that the more you know about them, the better you feel. If you don’t find what you’re looking for, let us know how we can help.
how much is the right amount?
THC gives you a psychoactive high. Research suggests THC may alleviate pain, symptoms associated with PTSD, reduce nausea, mitigate insomnia, reduce anxiety and even potentially have cancer-fighting characteristics.
Some people like to draw a parallel between a 5mg serving of Grön edibles to a glass of wine: it affects some people and others not at all. The idea is to start with a small amount and wait until you’ve learned what is right for you.
First things first: enjoy how the chocolate melts on your tongue. Because of how awesome and natural it is to swirl silky chocolate around in your mouth, you’re also allowing for sublingual and buccal absorption of the THC. The cacao’s natural butter fat, the pure oil distillate and the inside of your mouth create a trifecta to elevate the whole edible’s effects.
Why, yes. It’s not called a super food for nothing. You can even argue—and some of us do every day—that chocolate is an aphrodisiac, elisir d’amore, food of the gods, a tongue ceremony and a dance party in your mouth. It’s a joy adventure that connects real life to dreams and the stars in the sky. Chemically speaking, pure raw cacao contains antioxidants and the bliss chemical called anandamide. So, in conclusion, Grön chocolate can make you feel very sexy.
However, the story is a little more complicated. Phytocannabinoids, again, cannabinoids found in plants, can be found in a number of plant species other than cannabis and hemp. Other plants in the Cannabaceae family, like hops and trees in the Celtis genus, also contain cannabinoids. That got complicated for a second, but the take home is that some other plants, not just cannabis, have cannabinoids, too!
It’s amazing how much can change in a couple of years.
Where does CBD come from?
For those of you who don’t want to read a whole article on the topic, the short answer is: no, but you need to be careful where you get your CBD. CBD itself won’t make you test positive, but if your CBD oil has any THC in it, then it is a possibility.
As far as I can tell, there is virtually zero risk of overdosing on CBD. Very large doses might make you feel sleepy and lethargic or give you some digestive issues, but as far as I can tell, CBD is safer than pretty much anything else you might consider taking.
So, today I want to write up a beginner’s guide that answers some of the basic questions you might have about CBD. It’s a guide for all those like my mother-in-law (and past self!) who have heard about CBD but don’t quite know what all the fuss is about. A primer, if you will, that you could send to a friend or loved one who might be able to benefit from some of CBD’s potential benefits.
