Over the past week I’ve been trying another CBD nut butter by Naturecan for breakfast (any excuse to eat some peanut butter). I am loving the extensive range of CBD edibles by this brand, including gummies, cookies and of course, peanut butter.
How Did It Taste?
I was actually incredibly impressed with the CBD infused honey sea salt nut butter. On paper, I would have thought I would have preferred their milk chocolate nut butter, but this one is definitely nicer.
It was much more ‘peanutty’, which might sound odd, but the milk chocolate nut butter was 77% peanuts and this one is 93.9% peanuts, which is noticeable in the taste in a positive way.
Is It Smooth Or Crunchy?
It’s smooth, which I was very happy to find, as I love smooth peanut butters and this one was so creamy. It spread easily onto the bread, albeit there was a little liquid at the top when you first open it, but you just mix it together in the pot with your knife and it blends perfectly in, making just the right texture.
Is This Vegan?
Strictly speaking, it isn’t as it contains honey, which most vegans don’t eat as it requires commercial bee farmers to take honey from bees, which doesn’t meet most vegan ethical standards. On the other hand, I know a number of vegans that do actually eat honey, so it is slightly down to the individual and their perceptions of honey.
How Much CBD Do You Get?
The 180g tub contains 90mg of CBD, while a 15g serving size contains 7.5mg of CBD. As I said with the other nut butter I tried, you actually use around 30g when having peanut butter, therefore you will probably be getting around 15mg of CBD in your serving.
It can be tempting to consume copious amounts of peanut butter in one go (I’m very much guilty of this), but being a CBD based product, you should be aware the FSA guidelines state that you shouldn’t go over 70mg of CBD in a day, which is 9 servings. I mean, technically, it would be very impressive if you managed to consume this much, as that would work out as ¾ of the tub!
This product is also apparently THC free, which is important for anyone who might be drug tested, as this can show up if levels are high enough.
Considering The Flavour Is Honey Sea Salt, How Much Salt Do You Get?
The nut butter contains 1 gram of salt per 100 grams, while in a 30 gram portion (what I personally see as a serving) you would get 0.3g of salt. It should be highlighted that the sea salt is also organic, while it makes up 1% of the ingredients.
Where Can I Purchase This From?
You can purchase the NatureCan CBD Infused Nut Butter Honey Sea Salt from their website for £19.99. If you wanted to top your basket up to the £50 minimum for free delivery, I have reviewed plenty of other products by Naturecan which are worth having a read about.
