Many people have likely heard about the benefits of cannabis — both recreational and medicinal. Men and women from all walks of life use it to manage anxiety, treat insomnia, regulate hormones, or alleviate chronic pain.
The active ingredient in marijuana, THC, can produce a euphoric feeling, but that is just the beginning of the plant’s true powers. About 30 years ago, scientists discovered the endocannabinoid system in the human body. This system supports and regulates the body’s endocrine system, which secretes the hormones responsible for our daily comfort and activity.
Cannabinoids in marijuana, including THC and CBD, mimic those found in our own bodies and can serve as a supplement in times of stress. But smoking marijuana has its health drawbacks because users still have to inhale toxic fumes.
That’s why Défoncé was launched to give individuals and couples the best of both worlds by producing high-quality chocolates infused with cannabis.
“We wanted to start with chocolate first and then infuse cannabis in one great product,” said David Shi of Défoncé. “Chocolate, it transcends all demographics. I think of it as the sixth love language. Nothing shows affection like a chocolate treat, and, on top of that, ours can make you feel happy and excited.”
Défoncé chocolates can make a great gift for that special someone who enjoys the benefits of cannabis, and the company makes varieties for every level of customer, from novice to experienced.
David said that he’s heard time and again from customers who say the chocolate the company uses for its edibles is on par with some of the best chocolate in the world — of any variety.
It is sourced from a Belgian supplier that was the first in the nation to switch to sustainably grown plants. That makes the product better for cocoa farmers and the environment.
“We’re really proud of that,” he said. “On top of sustainable growth, we deliver a clean and safe high. It’s delicious and fun, and it’s designed for anyone. The dosing is light and accurate.”
Besides offering dosing consistency, the company also focuses on the quality and taste of the products it offers. The company is not interested in mass-producing its products, instead choosing to carefully craft batches of delicious chocolates that are perfect for both giving and sharing.
Défoncé aims to make its customers feel good about its products even before they try them, so they can feel good about their purchase while they enjoy it.
David said he’s heard from customers who enjoy melting a single-serve chocolate square into their coffee in the morning as a great way to start the day. Other people are integrating the chocolate into their baking recipes for a fun way to enjoy the edible. Others simply shave the chocolates over ice cream or other treats to add an extra-special element to their dessert.
A wide variety of consumers can enjoy the company’s chocolates.
“All products are gluten-free, and the dark chocolate product is also vegan, so you can opt for that in the bars, squares, or the bites,” he said. “It makes it a really good option for a gift.”
For those looking for the perfect chocolate cannabis gift for their special someone’s taste, Défoncé offers a wide selection.
The company offers three main products. First are its classic chocolate bars, which come in nine delicious flavors, including dark and milk chocolate, vanilla white chocolate, matcha green tea, and coconut. Each bar has 18 individual pieces each dosed with 5mg of THC, making for a total of 90mg in each bar.
Défoncé also sells single serving squares. These treats are available in five flavors and come in packs of two or eight, and each square is the same 5mg of THC as in the bar.
For an even more manageable experience, the company offers bites in four varieties: whole roasted almonds, whole roasted hazelnuts, blueberry, and dark roasted espresso beans. Each of the offerings is coated in the finest Belgium chocolate and comes in tubes of 40 bites. Each bite is 1mg of THC, which is perfect for those who enjoy the benefits of microdosing.
“You can pop them back and enjoy the product,” David said. “Or if you’re new to cannabis in general, 1mg or 2 mg is a great entry point.”
What brings all of these products together is simply great chocolate. The company takes pride in the confections and its in-house master chocolatiers who have been crafting chocolates long before they joined the cannabis industry.
The company’s goal was simply to bring luxury cannabis-infused chocolates into the marketplace, and the feedback from its customers shows that it has accomplished that mission.
David said he loved hearing from “Not Your Mom’s Kitchen,” a cooking blog that gave the company a shout-out recently. The blog tried Défoncé’s coconut chocolate, first saying the beautiful wrapping reminded them of a Wonka Bar from “Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory.”
“I didn’t even take a bite, but I already felt like I won the dang golden ticket,” read the blog post. “It’s good, creamy, and decadent without being overpowering. The flavors are delicate, and it’s the perfect balance.”
David said the entire Défoncé team is proud of the work the company does and works to create quality products that also introduce people to the benefits of cannabis.
“We definitely appreciate the love from our customers,” he said. “It certainly feels great. We’re proud of our product and everything it brings to the customers.”
The team is currently working on bringing cannabis-infused chocolate truffles to the market. And it’s also exploring opportunities for new markets and partnering with sister brands, along with selling in other states throughout the United States. The goal is to introduce more people to its products.
So far, the company has heard from many customers who are interested in its offerings. People of all ages and in all regions love its chocolates, but the people who are true connoisseurs especially appreciate the quality and taste.
“We’re not in the business of mass-producing a way to get high,” he said. “We really take pride in the divine confections that we’ve evolved.”
