What are weed chocolates?
Weed chocolate just so happens to be one of the most common edibles to make and eat because so many people love chocolate. Hence the reason why weed brownies are still beloved to this day.
And when you combine two of your favorite things together — weed and chocolate — you create magic!
Making them is also very easy to do, once you’ve made your cannabis butter. People who need to dose often, find that making edibles chocolate at home is a very affordable option. It takes a bit of money upfront to buy flower for the cannabis butter and the other ingredients.
But, after this initial expense, you’ll be able to make a lot of edibles chocolate that can last you a while.
Why is weed chocolate popular?
Let’s start with the most obvious reason — the yummy taste! If you’re a huge chocolate fan and you’ve never had weed chocolates before, you’ll soon find out what makes them super popular.
Another reason for their popularity relates to how simple they are to make. You only need a handful of ingredients, bakeware, and utensils and they can be prepped in a matter of minutes.
Finally, there are many health benefits associated with cacao. When you use unprocessed chocolate (called cacao), you can benefit from its antioxidant, mineral, and fiber content.
There’s even science to show that these two things pair well together. The chemical compound in weed, THC, and the chemical compound in chocolate, anandamide both impact memory, mood, sleep, and appetite.
Research also shows that together these chemicals can stay in your body for a while, which can extend the time you stay high and the benefits you get.
As you can see, combining these two things into one recipe brings about multiple benefits!

The Benefits Of Making Your Own Weed Chocolate
Just like making your own meals at home, there are many benefits to making your own weed chocolate. For starters, you have complete creative control over the recipe. Meaning, you can customize them however you see fit.
You can make a big batch, and half the mixture can have almonds, while you may want to add peanut butter chips to the other half. The options are endless.
Even more, food made from scratch and made with love carries tons of good energy.
For instance, there are several cultures, including Italian and Indian cultures, that believe our emotions go into the food we prepare, cook, or bake.
So if you are feeling happy, loving, and grateful, those emotions will play a huge part in the end result of your weed chocolates. This is especially important if you’re making these edibles for your overall well-being.
Who better than yourself, to make an alternative supplement that could provide the best possible benefit and serve you in the best possible way?
Edibles with chocolate are not only a delicious way to dose cannabis, but they may also provide lots of health benefits too. And when you take weed in an edible form, they take time to digest which ends up supplying a long-lasting high.
Plus, let’s not forget how good it feels to make your own alternative therapeutic supplements. And to make it in the exact way you want. You control the dose, the ingredients, even down to the shape of the chocolates. How awesome is that!
We hope you feel inspired and more empowered than ever to get high from your own kitchen, by making some tasty chocolate goodies.
