Emerald Mountain (formerly Canna Vita Botanicals) makes a variety of cannabis infused candies that are like chocolate squares.
They have ten different flavors, some available in CBD formulas. The candy squares come in ten individually wrapped packages to a bag, each squares has 10mg of THC (or CBD for those formulas).
These contain milk and tree nuts (almonds) so they are not suitable for vegans or those with nut allergies. They also contain palm oil, which is a concern for some folks due to the environmental impact of that ingredient. They also contain whey and they don’t indicate if it is gluten-free whey protein or another form of whey, so they may not be gluten-free.
The package is easy to open with the classic tear across strip common to many resealable bags. The individual packages are not marked or labeled in any way, a concern if they get separated from their bag as there is no way to tell flavor, potency or formula if you were to mix up the plain bags. Keep the individuals with the “mother” bag to avoid confusion. The individual bags are also easy to open, which is great. Keep these away from pets and children as they are easy to get into.
Tried the Raspberry white chocolate flavor. It was a pretty generic flavor, neither gourmet nor totally artificial. They do use artificial flavors and you can tell, as there is an artificiality to the raspberry flavor as it’s mixed with sweet almond oil. There is something slighty off and a little chalky overall about the taste of these chocolate candies. They finish pretty smooth with the white chocolate flavor you’d expect. They taste fine but aren’t as gourmet as some of the other infused chocolates on the market. No noticeable THC oil taste, a big plus for folks who don’t like that taste.
The budtender where I purchased these recommended them becaus I said I preferred Sativa-type effects. He said that folks who liked Cornerstones used them during the day and so they didn’t create a sedating effect.
None of the CornerStones products I saw have any indication of Sativa or Indica or what strain is used in the cannabis extract. I greatly prefer some indication of what effects I can expect based on the profile of the THC, but there is no such indication.
I did find the effects to be okay for daytime. I didn’t feel sedated or have a heavy head. Focus was the main effect I experienced. Some energy but not a lot and no noticeable uplift in mood that I find with some cannabis edibles. In waves it was like a caffeine rush, with that slightly hyped feeling after drinking strong coffee. They definitely are potent, with strong effects felt at my usual dose of 10mg. Long lasting too, as the effects linger for almost 5 hours.
For a functional, focused and long-lasting experience, Corner Stones deliver. No exotic flavors or ingredients but a solid cannabis edible suitable for daytime or socializing.
These are made and sold in the state of Washington only as of 2019.
