I first became acquainted with Kiva Confections when a friend of mine passed me one of their tiny blueberry/chocolate confections. You know the ones, the tiny infused blueberries are offered in a lovely tin, enrobed in lusciously smooth chocolate, without a tinge of the grittiness that sometimes plagues lesser brands of THC infused chocolates. These tiny gems come micro-dosed, as not to overwhelm the beginner by too much THC, too fast. You’d have to eat a couple handfuls to really get buzzed, and I don’t think that’s the reasoning behind these infused treats. They do pack a nice buzz, so start slowly as I always recommend. Try one, wait an hour or so if you need more, take more. Otherwise sit back and enjoy the good feeling. The chocolates are beguiling too from a product standpoint. They are soft across the tongue and teeth, well blended buttery and rich to the mouth. The blueberries are perfectly ripe and plump. A gorgeous treat that also gets you buzzed. A win/win for people like myself who enjoy medicating without drawing attention to ourselves. When you light up a joint, no matter what state (of mind, or otherwise), you are in- it’s going to attract all kinds of attention. But pluck a couple Kiva Blueberries into your mouth and all is better. It’s uncanny to think that everything should be sweet- Kiva is well balanced in the flavor quotient. Not too sweet, just right.
