Chalice Farms makes A big player in both the recreational and medical cannabis scenes. Hailing from Portland, Oregon, Chalice sets themselves apart by incorporating wellness ingredients into their fruit chews, which they consider to be an “effects-based cannabis line.” This term means each product was developed for an intended purpose or to give off a specific effect. Since Chalice Farm Fruit Chews are an edible product, they can take anywhere from 45 minutes to 2 hours to take effect. The activation time is so long because the cannabinoids need to be fully digested and then processed by the liver. This also means that there is high variation in edible products, meaning even if you take a consistent dose, the effects and time to feel them may vary.
Chalice was a bit more difficult of a brand to understand from afar – their web presence is somewhat confusing since they have multiple branches, with different sites for each product. I also found there to be a lack of information on Chalice’s product compared to others we’ve reviewed on CBD Oracle. The product itself is fairly affordable, and not the most or least expensive cannabis product out there. Chalice produces a wide range of products for any type of cannabis user, but their mission and even the dosing of their product is a bit hard to come by.
Each flavor of Chalice Farms Fruit Chews lived up to its designated effect, although consuming edibles is a fairly inaccurate way to achieve a consistent high and figure out your perfect dose. The flavors of each chew capitalized on common fruit-forward combinations, but didn’t all match up equally in taste. Each box contains 10 small, rectangular fruit chews reminiscent of a Starburst. The dosage is not clearly labeled on the product or the website, making the user experience a bit cloudy.
Chalice Farms Fruit Chews are a bit inconsistent in flavor across the line, but their 10:1 CBD-rich Lemon Ginger Fruit Chews are the star of the whole product offering, in my opinion. With over 50mg CBD and 5mg THC per serving, these edibles provide a calming body high good for a variety of uses, from post-workout recovery, to a pre-hike buzz.
“Recovery” Lemon Ginger Fruit Chews (10:1)
The “Recovery” Fruit Chews are lemon ginger flavor bombs with a high CBD to THC ratio, featuring 52mg CBD and 5mg THC per chew. Chalice Farms sets themselves apart by adding wellness ingredients to their chews, like turmeric and black pepper to help reduce inflammation.
The 10:1 ratio aims to provide physical relief and recovery, and delivers an enjoyable body high paired with the slightest amount of THC for entourage effect. The chews take 45 minutes to 2 hours for the full effect, and you’ll be pleasantly surprised that this product is fairly affordable, at $3.50 per dose.
Chalice Farms knocked it out of the park with the 10:1 CBD to THC ratio. This blend is the perfect formula for physical and mental recovery, with just the right amount of THC. Since this product is very CBD-heavy, it’s ideal for relaxation, whether post-workout, or before a long hike with friends. The flavor reminded me of a better-tasting yellow Starburst, but with added turmeric and black pepper.
Chalice Farms’ “Calm” Fruit Chews feature a 2:1 CBD to THC ratio, with 18mg CBD and 9mg THC per serving. These chews might be better to consume during the late afternoon and evening hours given each serving has enough THC to be psychoactive depending on your tolerance level.
To enhance the wellness aspect of this product, Chalice Farms added Vitamin D and B-Complex to the Kiwi Strawberry Fruit chews, which were effective but didn’t blow my mind.
Chalice Farms understands the diverse and beneficial effects of using varying CBD to THC ratios in their fruit chews. This flavor contributes to an ideal state of relaxation, paired with a mellow head high – a winning combo for feeling calm and focused. You might find the flavor to be underwhelming and with a strange tingling aftertaste, but if you can look past it, this product is a good option.
Not only do Chalice Farms’ Acai Berry Fruit Chews feature a 1:1 CBD to THC ratio, their formulas are further enhanced by goji berry, a notable superfood, and elderberry, a fruit believed to improve immunity.
Each fruit chew has 10mg CBD and 10mg THC, so this edible might be best enjoyed towards the end of your day when you can afford a slight psychoactive reaction. A 1:1 cannabinoid ratio is always a winning combo, but the packaging could stand to be more visually appealing and informative.
The Acai Berry Chews give the perfect combination of body and head high, likely from their 1:1 CBD to THC ratio. The flavor is spot on and tastes just like an acai bowl, although there is a somewhat chemical-ly aftertaste. This fruit chew can take anywhere from 45 minutes to 2 hours to take effect. It took about an hour for me, and it came on subtly.
