Good morning, reader.

It’s 7:30 AM on a weekday, and I’m going to review 10g of Legend milk chocolate.

This product contains 10mg THC and costs $6.29. I bought it from a store called Sweet Tree.

As a more frequent user of cannabis, I wanted to do this review in the morning, before I’ve used any other cannabis products.

PREP

Doing a bit of preparation here, by googling “what makes good chocolate”, and I’ll try to summarize the top 5 results into something we can use on the fly.

Quick aside, I think dark chocolate is gross, and will not eat it; ever. I’ve known people that like it, we usually get along because it means more dark chocolate for them.

Here’s the other thing, I’m not shooting a target from a Kilometer away, no need to account for the Coriolis effect; so all the detailed elements an aficionado may be concerned with, I’ll skip.

Of the 5 top Google returns,  one had good info, three said nothing and one was a reproduction of the first. Despite this, here’s the goal I think we’re aiming for:

VISUAL

Smooth chocolate, no bubbles

SCENT

Chocolate smells, no fillers, or foreign spices.

SOUND

Want a crisp breakage. Milk or white chocolate may be more ductile.

TASTE

Mouth feel – Smooth is better

Finish – Long is better

Off tastes- anything bad

OK LET’S DO THIS.

This product comes in 4 sections and I’ll break one off, eating a single piece as per the instructions I was given via the internet.

I photo’ed this cannabis product, as I flip the solid piece over, I notice some bubbles.

The chocolate snaps along the partition with a soft snap. It’s not a crisp sound, like snapping your fingers. More like the sounds you’d associate with breaking foam insulation or hard packed snow; the sound is less intense.

START THE TIMER
7:48AM

The cocoa taste is apparent first, slightly bitter. The milky sweet, chocolate follows quickly, drowning out any of the cocoa.

7:51AM

The first piece is done. Leaving a chocolaty taste in my mouth, I wouldn’t regard as prevalent. I would regard the taste as smooth, especially with the milk chocolate this interpretation is easy to make.

One of the sources of information I used has a flavour wheel, so I’ll take a crack at it.

There are 7 flavours shown:

  • Spicy
  • Floral
  • Earthy
  • Fruity
  • Vegetative
  • Nutty
  • Carmel

Each type expands into a more detailed dimension, then there are a natural notes given, to which we are to make an association with.

I’d wholeheartedly choose caramel to describe these tastes, with a milk modifier.

7:57AM

I can still l taste the chocolate aftertaste with a slight residual dryness. Maybe someone would relish this, I’m on the fence.

7:58AM

First sip of coffee. Palate has more bitter leave.

8:02AM

Another piece. This time it melted quickly and my mouth is a mix of coffee and chocolate.

8:03AM

Another piece, x2.

Now all the chocolate is consumed.

TYPICAL USAGE

Usually I don’t monitor when I first use cannabis in the day; I estimate it’s somewhere between 9-11am. Most often I feel like vaporizing, go to turn it on and find my previous self has already done that.

Today I will monitor when I turn on my vape. And my hypothesis is that I will smoke cannabis a bit later, due to the 10mg of THC in this chocolate package.

For now I can report I feel no effects of intoxication, aside from the thrill of eating chocolate for breakfast.

Another thing that happens to me most work days is I feel a bit squirrely after drinking a whole pot of coffee, then I’ll take a break and go for a run (usually between 11:30am-12:30pm) so I’ll be looking for changes from that routine.

8:20AM

Another cup of coffee.

8:46AM

Stood up too quick and got a bit light headed, not really normal.

9:55AM

Had to restructure morning, went for run early, hopping on a zoom call in 5 minutes. Still no cannabis used today (besides chocolate) and I don’t really feel the need to.

10:44AM

Off the call. Going to conclude this review. This product gave me a very mild buzz in the background. Didn’t disturb my day or cause me to do anything that I wouldn’t have done otherwise. The chocolate taste was good; I wouldn’t say it converted me, but certainly didn’t repulse me.

11:45AM

Just turning on my vaporizer now. Still no cannabis, this is unusual.

SUMMARY

From a taste perspective, I didn’t mind this at all. The effects were mild, but strong enough to offset my normal cannabis use by inhalation.

Qualitatively, I found it pretty good; but I don’t really know what I’m talking about. There were some bubbles. When I broke the segment it made a sound; probably about 1/3 of what you’d hear on a Kit-Kat commercial. I don’t know if that’s a fair comparison, Kit-Kat has wafers, and a song.

If I were to mention a negative about it; I had acid indigestion the day after, which is probably more of a comment about my water intake than it is anything else.

My priorities in this purchase are highly based on price and taste; cannabinoid content isn’t as relevant. Taste was ok, price is high compared to other non-cannabis chocolates.

Here’s the interesting note I’ll leave on: I mentioned purchasing this product to my significant other, who has never used cannabis. She asked me about it later; wanting to see, and smell it. There wasn’t a lot of interest, but there was some, and I think that’s the aim of a product like this.
