You asked and we answered! The #1 selling chocolate edible* in California is welcoming its first CBD-rich flavor to the family. CBD Almond Terra is all the things. Rich, crunchy, sweet and salty. Each bite contains 5MG of CBD and 1MG of THC in each delicious, dark chocolate bite. Now, we know what you’re thinking. Why did we choose a 5:1 ratio of CBD to THC for this flavor? To answer that question, let’s look at what THC and CBD are and how they work together to create one incredible edible experience.
THC is one of the active constituents of cannabis (called a cannabinoid) responsible for its psychoactive ‘high’ and euphoric and mood-enhancing effects, as well as many of its health benefits. It is also primarily responsible for any uncomfortable side effects associated with cannabis. CBD is THC’s non-intoxicating, but similarly relaxing cousin. Like THC, this cannabinoid may help users manage their pain, anxiety, inflammation, sleep, and other health conditions— with no risk of uncomfortable side effects. The presence of THC has been shown to increase the effectiveness of CBD alone (called ‘The Entourage Effect’), resulting in a more robust health and wellness supplement than the more widely available hemp-based CBD products.
While THC is the ‘main event’ for many cannabis lovers, others look at its psychoactivity as an unwanted byproduct. There are also times that even the highest tolerance user wants a lighter experience for themselves. Which is why with CBD Almond Terra’s launch, Kiva is excited to announce that all of our brands now have a CBD option. So how does one choose their favorite?
The key to choosing which products are right for you comes down to your sensitivity to THC and your desired experience. A THC-rich product is going to have the strongest mind-altering effects, while a CBD-rich product is going to provide the most subtle experience. Kiva’s current CBD offerings include our CBD Citrus Petra Mint (which has a minimal amount of THC), our new 5:1 CBD Almond Terra Bite, our recently released 5:1 Dark Chocolate Kiva Bar, our 3:1 CBD-rich Sparkling Pear Camino Gummy, and our 1:1 Espresso Kiva Bar. Each product offers a wholly unique experience, kind of like how each of our brands offers a particular taste!
At Kiva, we are proud to offer an ever-expanding range of CBD and THC balanced products so that we have something for every tolerance, lifestyle, and occasion. With cannabis, there is no one-size-fits-all. And we wouldn’t have it any other way!
