Who doesn’t like THC products? THC products are great. Who doesn’t like chocolate? Chocolate is great. Naturally, they’d make wonderful companions and boy do they. If you have ever tried a Delta 9 THC chocolate or a Delta 8 THC chocolate, you may have noticed that it felt like it hit you harder than gummies and wondered why. There are a few scientific answers to this question. So, kick back in the cut, fire one up, and let’s learn about some weed stuff. 

Chocolates Produces Endocannabinoids Gummies Do not 

There have long been tales that dark chocolate enhances your THC high. There are no doubts chocolate affects your endocannabinoid system. Chocolate produces small amounts of Anandamide. Anandamide is a naturally produced endocannabinoid within the brain and has a similar potency to THC. This is probably where the theory that dark chocolate can enhance your buzz unknowingly stems from. Gummies do not contain other endocannabinoids. While both THC products get you high, the chocolate will have a greater effect on your endocannabinoid system. 

Water-Soluble THC vs Oil Soluble THC 

Water soluble THC has been a breakthrough for THC edibles. It can’t be used in chocolate, but it is becoming the new go-to in gummies and drinks. If you’ve seen a THC product labeled “fast acting”, it contains water-soluble THC. Water-soluble THC bypasses what is known as first-pass effect or first-pass metabolism and allows for quick absorption with a more predictable onset time and shorter duration. This has been great for people who need immediate relief but for those looking for longer duration they don’t seem to hit. Gummies are the royalty of THC edibles, they dominate the shelves, and are the first thing many people ask for, so when they try chocolate, they are unprepared. Chocolates use oil soluble THC and must go through first-pass metabolism which leaves duration longer but the duration as well as the onset time is more unpredictable. 


If you’ve never tried chocolate THC products before this is your sign to give it a go! We suggest testing out the effects for yourself with our 5mg Delta 9 THC/CBG gummies and our 5mg chocolate crunchy balls. There is no downside to finding out if they hit harder than gummies. Either you discover that chocolate indeed does hit harder than gummies, or you just get high as usual and get to eat chocolate and your normal gummies. We don’t know about you, but that sounds like a pretty good day to us.
