Moroccan Chocolates

from Stubborn Jackass

"Subtle but delicious, with spicy notes of nutmeg and black pepper."

Stubborn Jackass was created by Chris Palmer with the vision of supplying affordable medical Cannabis products for both his family and his community. These Moroccan chocolates are a delectable and exotic treat, made by a talented chocolatier from a grassroots company. Featuring 60% dark chocolate, 40% milk chocolate, nutmeg, ginger, cassia, turmeric, black pepper, allspice, clove, cardamom – not to mention vegan decorating paints from Poland, Maine – this fine gourmet edible will leave you feeling guilt-free on a chocolate high. 

The packaging is basic but clean and refined. On one side, a silver reflective mylar and on the other side, a clear window with two colorful graffiti speckled chocolates. The artful design is reminiscent of a Jackson Pollock painting and adds a fun spin to the classic chocolate truffle. At about one square-inch in size, these chocolates are small – but the perfect size for medicating moderately. Each chocolate square has 50mg of infused THC, which is the perfect amount for dosing throughout the day.

The flavor is subtle but delicious, and spicy notes of nutmeg and black pepper shine through. This is not an overly sweet confection, instead crafted for an adult palate. The dark chocolate is sophisticated and smooth. They are well-tempered and the chocolate inside is creamy and even. This edible has a nice bite!

The high was calming and made me feel fun and giggly – no racing mind or uncomfortable feelings. These chocolates were great for socializing and I did not feel weighed down or sluggish, rather, just serene and content. When the effects began to wear off, there was no tiredness or hangover. Later that day and into the morning, I continued to feel carefree and soothed.
