Kiva - a higher chocolate experience.
KIVA Confections creates cannabis infused chocolate products and is one of the most recognized medical cannabis companies in California. The company was born out of a need for an edible product that was potent, consistent, and enjoyable to consume. In early 2010 the cannabis edible market was desperately underserved; the products available were untested, unlabeled, and inconsistent in potency. To solve this problem, founders Scott Palmer and Kristi Knoblich began exploring novel approaches to medicating through food. After visiting a local chocolatier, the lightbulb went off. Working with expert cannabis cultivators, certified analytics laboratories, and a lot of trial and error, KIVA was born. To accompany the new product, the founders developed a mission statement that would go beyond simply delivering a better edible. It included a commitment to efficacy, food safety, and business integrity which continues today.
After 9 months of careful development, KIVA Confections was launched. Immediately patients took notice and fell in love with the product for it’s certified potency, incredible taste and informative packaging. Since then the company has grown to encompass over a dozen varieties of chocolate edibles with a loyal customer base throughout hundreds of dispensaries in CA and growing. It’s artisan confections have garnered multiple awards and recognition in the marketplace including Best Edible at both the San Francisco and LA High Times Cannabis Cups in 2013. With over forty employees dedicated to quality, food safety and compassionate care, KIVA continues to redefine the edible cannabis category and lead the way in developing premium quality, great tasting products that deliver certified amounts of medicinal cannabis within a delicious, artisan-inspired chocolate recipe.
