Out of all the edibles I’ve eaten since Illinois legalized cannabis, I’ve found that I most often prefer chocolates. As mention in pervious reviews, chocolate edibles have a stronger effect on me than other edibles. So when I noticed Progressive Treatment Solutions had launched The Dose Bar, I picked one up from Consume Marion.
The Dose Bar, from PTS’s Sweet ReLeaf brand, was made with artisanal chocolate using a special blend of non-GMO certified cacao beans, and according to PTS, made using honorably sourced chocolate that preserves the environment surrounding the crops.
The complete 100mg THC chocolate bar could easily be broken into twenty 5mg THC pieces. Each piece was marked with 5mg to simplify dosing. The ingredients included milk chocolate (sugar, cocoa butter, milk, unsweetened chocolate), sunflower lecithin, vanilla, natural flavor (medium chain triglycerides, natural flavor), and pure cannabis oil.
The flavor of the Dose Bar balanced between the milk chocolate and the cocoa butter with notes of the vanilla. The chocolate delivered very little to no taste of cannabis.
The hybrid cannabis oil in The Dose Bar delivered an energetic happy buzz, until the very end in which the sedative effect took over mind and body. The cerebral high hit first. The body buzz had a longer onset, but once activated, the muscle relief settled in quickly.
I slept well each night after dosing, though the first night I had to wait until the initial energy subsided. For the first half of the buzz, I found myself accomplished menial tasks around the house that I hadn’t intended to do. The second half of the buzz, I preferred watching television and listening to music.
Overall, The Dose Bar was another tasty milk chocolate edible on the Illinois market. I also mixed a few pieced with my homemade CBD chocolate with The Dose Bar and enjoyed the effects of that combination as well. So maybe next time I’ll grab The Dose Bar 1:1 that PTS also offers.
