The summer heat isn’t letting up and sometimes it feels too hot to even smoke. That makes it the perfect time to try out some edibles, take a siesta, and keep cool! We’ve put together four of our favorite edibles for summertime so you can try for yourself. From edibles that remind you of summer break as a kid, to perfect additions to summer’s favorite treats, to one spicy-hot snack, there’s something for everyone!
PANDA CHOCOLATE BARS
When it’s this hot out, a little chocolate can take the sting out of staying in. Panda chocolates come in summer-fresh flavors that can satisfy any sweet tooth and patients love the range of potencies available.
Panda’s 100mg chocolate bar flavors include classics like Milk Chocolate, Strawberry Cheesecake, Chocolate Shake, and Cookies & Creme. Need something stronger? Check out 300mg Milk Chocolate, Strawberry Cheesecake, and Chocolate Shake!
Chocolate edibles are a delicious option for patients, and Medusa’s slates of premium chocolate set themselves apart with their mature, edgy and flavor-forward profile. These 200mg bars come in easily dosable 10mg triangles and feature decadent ingredients in three mouth-watering flavors. Hazelnut Crunch is a milk chocolate bar with candied hazelnuts and guinduja. Maple Bourbon combines milk chocolate with a smoky hint of bourbon and a sweet mix of maple. And Dark Chocolate Citrus delivers a 2:1 ratio of CBD to THC for a relaxing experience.
Medusa & Panda are both made by Nuthera Labs, and we caught up with Seth Galusha the Director of Edible Production to learn more about Medusa!
Flora Farms: Seth, what sparked your passion for chocolate?
Seth Galusha: Chocolate is similar to coffee, wine or cannabis, in that it’s capable of a wide range of flavor profiles based on its genetics and where it’s grown. In addition to that satisfying flavor complexity, shaping and working with chocolate is just plain fun!
FF: What excites you about Medusa?
SG: With Medusa, a lot of time is put into selecting from different terroir to ensure that each chocolate blends perfectly with the other ingredients. For example, I selected a very sweet, caramel-y milk chocolate to pair with the candied hazelnuts and gianduja in our Hazelnut Crunch Bar.
FF: How do you like to enjoy Medusa while beating the heat?
SG: One of the best ways to enjoy Medusa Chocolates in the summer is with ice cream! You can take a butter knife and scrape off ribbons of chocolate as a fancy topping or just break it up and sprinkle the chunks onto vanilla bean ice cream.
