Mmmm, chocolate! Have you ever wondered why cannabis and chocolate go so well together? Like cannabis, chocolate is derived naturally from a plant, the cacao tree. Both cannabis and chocolate effect brain chemistry in similar ways, flooding us with good feelings and happiness. When enjoyed together, they can only enhance each other’s best properties. Here are some cannabis strains that will enhance flavor, texture and effects when paired with chocolate.
Cabbage Patch: Sweet and earthy Cabbage Patch is a perfect strain to complement rich chocolate desserts like pudding, lava cake and hot cocoa. It’s relaxing yet uplifting, great for dessert course enjoyment.
GG4: The earthy, sour flavors of everybody’s favorite GG4 (previously known as Gorilla Glue #4), enhances dark chocolate desserts like torte, truffles and chocolate bars. Its relaxing euphoria makes it a great after-dinner strain.
Sour Diesel: Flavored with earth and fuel, Sour Diesel can enrich the flavors of rich, chocolatey desserts like brownies, double chocolate cookies and fudge ice cream. Or, pair this strain with semi-sweet chocolates for an unexpected flavor treat.
Tangie: The sweet citrus notes in Tangie make it a bright choice for delicate flavors. Pair Tangie with white or milk chocolate treats like nibs or dipped fruit!
