Cannabis product review: Whoopi & Maya Savor Raw Cacao Spread

Remember the “Nutella riots” in French supermarkets at the end of January? Imagine if those 70%-off Nutellas had included sun-grown California cannabis extract. Yikes, right? I mention it because Whoopi & Maya have created a cacao spread so close to Nutella that it made me go buy a loaf of bread. Immediately.

Now, I know what you’re thinking. How does bread equal sex? Isn’t this a post about cannabis and Valentine’s Day delights?

Once I opened the lid and smelled the wafting richness of Savor’s raw cacao butter, I knew I was in for it. It’s the kind of good where you close your eyes and make an indeterminate noise. Cacao produces “feel good” chemicals that are naturally mood-boosting. When combined with W&M’s highest quality cannabis extract, it’s a treat almost custom made for appreciating earthly pleasures.

Sure, this product is billed for PMS & menstrual relief, and I don’t doubt that the medicine in this product delivers specific symptom relief. But here’s the thing I love most about this edible: it’s actually quite versatile. It’s easy to make a yummy hot chocolate, or to melt it and spread onto toast or fruit or you know, your lover.

And I’ll be honest: its silky-smooth texture is just fun to play with. It’s a fun, whimsical alternative to other Valentine’s Day stand-bys, and because it contains top-shelf cannabis extract, it’s possible to savor this treat over time by needing to consume less to feel its effects.

Be sure to read the rest of our package of reviews of cannabis products to enhance pleasure.

One thing to note is that because it’s a spread that comes in 2oz. or 4oz. jars, dosing is a little tricky to figure out. I started with one tablespoon, and that did me just right. If you have a higher tolerance, you can try Savor’s Extra Strength option. This spread also has different CBD and THC options, and if you’re looking for more psychoactivity and “body high” sensations, I’d go with the THC-only option. But, if you’re hoping to be awake for some of your playtime, the CBD/THC option might be there better bet.

Either way, the cannabis-cacao combination in a spreadable form will have you feeling good no matter which you choose.

The Wrap: Vegan, gluten-free, and the best kind of indulgent. W&M’s Savor is a great choice for folks wanting a pleasurable experience from the moment it touches the tongue. A little goes a long way, so it’s also a great choice for folks looking to get bang for their buck.

Potency: Options abound!

  • CBD Formula: 2 oz. Jar contains 40 mg CBD, 2 mg THC; 4 oz. jar contains 80 mg CBD, 4 mg THC
  • THC Formula : 2 oz. jar has 50 mg THC; 4oz. jar has 100 mg THC

Effects: 10 out of 10 for decadence, 7 out of 10 for pleasure factor because it tastes amazing but dosing can be a bit tricky.

Price: $14-$18 and $27-35.
