A Calgary chocolatier gets the high sign to make cannabis-infused products
Have you heard the buzz? Canadians, your chocolate highs are soon to be taken to the next level.
Choklat, a Calgary-based chocolate factory owned by Brad Churchill has just announced through its investment company Namaste Technologies that it has received a coveted processing license from Health Canada to produce a line of chocolate bars, drink mixes and infused sugar.
Cannabis was legalized in Canada just over a year ago and now new options for its use are hitting the market in the form of edibles being distributed in the cannabis stores.
In a recent announcement, Namaste CEO Meni Morim called Choklat's Churchill “a true pioneer” in the world of chocolate production. His products are of the finest quality using the best ingredients.
"We believe there is pent up demand for cannabis-infused edible products on a national scale. Choklat is one of the first food processors in Canada to receive its processing license from Health Canada and we expect their products to be on shelves in March, allowing for the Health Canada notice period,” Morim said.
Choklat prides itself on importing the rarest cocoa beans in the world and creating the purest, high quality chocolate products available.
"Receiving the processing license from Health Canada is a significant achievement and milestone," said Choklat CEO Brad Churchill.
“Our high-quality cannabis-infused bars and beverages will be based on our own chocolate recipe made from a special cocoa bean sourced from the jungles of South America. This is an exciting time for Choklat, CannMart and Namaste as we enter the competitive cannabis 2.0 landscape," he added.
