MaryBud Chocolates

from MaryBud Chocolates

An opulent edible option that would fit perfectly beside a bouquet of flowers for a special occasion.

MaryBud Chocolates is redefining the concept of luxury edibles amidst a sea of neon-colored mylar bags lining dispensary shelves. Artfully marbled with vibrant metallic hues of blue, pink and yellow, and nestled into quilted silver gift boxes – these treats are an opulent edible option that would fit perfectly beside a bouquet of flowers for a special occasion like Mother’s Day.

Founder Mary Sonntag’s unique journey from pastry chef to psychotherapist informs every aspect of MaryBud Chocolates. Over her career, she has worked with patients seeking relief from depression, anxiety, addiction and PTSD – noticing the positive benefits many experienced from Cannabis usage. Inspired by the plant’s healing potential, Mary returned to chocolate-making with a desire to create a more luxurious Cannabis consumption experience.

MaryBud Chocolates takes a refined approach to combining two of the world’s most coveted plants – blending high-quality, ethically-sourced Belgian chocolate couverture with distillate-free, full-spectrum, strain-specific Cannabis extract – for an infusion that takes around 30 minutes to set in and will leave you feeling uplifted for several hours.

Opening a box of these chocolates reveals a tantalizing array that gets taste buds tingling with anticipation. The ganache-filled 10mg bonbons feature a single-strain infusion of Rainbow Belts that will uplift you to an animated state, perfect before an evening of indulgence. Every morsel has been handcrafted with delicate attention to detail. The bonbons really burst with flavor when the rich chocolate ganache melds the slightly-sweet tinge from the Cannabis in pairings like ginger orange, almond mint, white chocolate coconut, lavender raspberry, salted peanut butter and spiced mocha. 

Certain circumstances require elevation and sophistication. MaryBud Chocolates stands out among its edible peers for those occasions – carrying an air of sophistication that sets these chocolate boxes apart from even the most gourmet options.
