Chocolate CBD Therapy Truffles
Makes about 20 small truffles, approximately 13mg CBD & 1mg THC each.
4 oz. bittersweet or semisweet chocolate, chopped
2 1/4 tablespoons unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
A pinch of fine sea salt
1/8 cup unsweetened cocoa powder (preferably non-alkalized, dutch process)
Zest of 1 orange (optional) for decorating & a bright flavor, or get creative! Finely chopped roasted pistachios, holiday sprinkles, shredded coconut, or even smoked sea salt can make these truffles even more special.
Place the chocolate, butter, CBD therapy Drops, and salt in a bowl set on top of a gently simmering pot of water, or a double boiler if you have one. Stir often, and until the chocolate is melted and smooth. Pour the mixture into a bowl. Cover and refrigerate for at least three hours (or up to 3 days) to harden.
Remove and let the mixture stand at room temperature for 15 or more minutes to soften very slightly.
Spread the cocoa in a shallow pie or cake pan. If desired, sprinkle 2 tbs of the orange zest over the cocoa, or your favorite toppings. Scrape a tiny scoop or melon baller across the surface of the chocolate mixture to form an irregular round truffle, 1 inch or less in diameter. Place the truffle in the pie pan. Shake the pan to roll the truffle in cocoa and zest/ toppings. Repeat until all of the truffles are shaped and coated.
Remove the truffles from the cocoa to a covered container. Refrigerate to store. Remove truffles from the fridge about 10 minutes before serving.
Dosing Tip: Did you know? Research recommends starting with 1mg of whole-plant CBD for every 10lbs of body weight. So 1 truffle would be the perfect dose for someone who is 120-150lbs. Also, you can’t “overdose” on CBD.
Want more THC?: For those who want a little more THC in their chocolate, try this same recipe with 1/2 bottle The Farmaceuticals Company Balance therapy Drops! Using half of a bottle of Balance Drops each truffle would be approximately 3.75mg of CBD and 3.75mg THC. Just add in 15 ml (or approx. 3 teaspoons) of good quality extra virgin olive oil to the mix!
