Note From Chef Carosi

These cannabis green tea white chocolates are not only delicious, come to find out, in moderation they are also considered healthy and good for us. Combining the best quality white chocolate, green tea and cannabis can lead to some truly delightful results.

Aside from its presence in cannabis, phytol can also be found naturally in green teas, that's why matcha, gunpowder green tea and sencha are so calming. Phytol occurs naturally in green tea and exhibits a mild sedative effect. Several cannabis strains with high levels of phytol are Sour Diesel and The Cheese. A few additional terpenes found in chocolate are linalool, myrcene and ocimene.

These luscious low-dose cannabis treats will not last long and are loaded with naturally occurring phytol. They are also bursting with mellowing myrcene and fragrant geraniol to add to that natural dose of phytol. Saying that these chocolates are "super dope" would be putting it mildly. Enjoy the combination and get ready to make more, fast...
