P&B Kitchen is the edibles line of Papa & Barkley’s. These chocolates with caramel centers are not labeled as indica or sativa, so they are likely a mix of random hybrids.
These edibles are made with 66% Fair Trade Certified dark chocolate and crafted with solventless cannabis rosin. They do contain cow’s milk and cream so they are not suitable for vegans, vegetarians, or folks that avoid dairy.
Each chocolate has 10mg of THC and <2mg of CBD per serving, for a total of 100mg THC and <2mg of CBD per package.
They do not contain artificial ingredients. They are nut free but made on shared equipment so may contain traces of milk, tree nuts, and/or soy lecithin.
Dosing & Flavor
These smell like regular chocolates. They are hard but easy to bite through and melt in the mouth in the same way as most chocolates.
The chocolates are individually portioned but not individually wrapped and need to be cut in half for a 5mg dose. They are not scored so they do not give a guide for easily cutting them in half.
The chocolate is a standard flavored chocolate, noting fancy like Belgian or Swiss chocolate. The caramel is tasty and neither have much of a cannabis or rosin taste.
The flavor is sugar-forward since the chocolate is made with sugar and the caramel has three types of sugar – Glucose Syrup, Cane Sugar,and Invert Sugar.
As we always recommend with new edibles, try half of your usual dose before trying a full dose as you never know how strong something will effect you.
Since I am experienced with edibles and my usual dose is 10mg of THC, I began with half of a piece, with 5mg THC. After having only light effects for that trial run, I then moved closer to my usual dose on another day, taking one whole chocolate for a total dose of 10mg THC.
The effects I experienced were mainly a slightly relaxed feeling, while still being alert. It doesn’t have the elevated head, alertness and energy you expect with with Sativa-dominant strains, or the strong relaxing and chill impacts from some Indica-dominant strains.
As is the case with most edibles that are not formulated with specific strains or terpenes for a specific type of effect, these effects are just middle of the road. That is fine if you like a mild, slightly relaxed feeling and don’t expect much more.
Decent flavor but muddy effects make this a nice mild edible for those who are THC sensitive or for folks who want to micro-dose. Being hard to cut in half or quarters, however, they are not a great choice to try to have just a 5mg or 2.5 mg dose. If you are looking for an edible with specific effects or impacts, you likely want to keep looking. Perfectly acceptable for an edible experience that isn’t strong and doesn’t taste of cannabis
