These are the first CBD cookies I’ve tried, so you can imagine my excitement. I received somewhere North of 20 different products by Naturecan to be reviewed, but I was always going to go straight for the cookies and brownies. Honestly, as so many Naturecan products have arrived, you will be seeing this brand pop up on my homepage probably for the next 4-5 months!
How Much CBD Do You Get?
Each cookie provides a respectable 25mg of CBD. Most people consume around 15-20mg of CBD at one time or in a day when they’re starting out, so 25mg nicely hits the target. This is a positive, as I have seen a number of edibles that only provide you with 5mg of CBD, which can be deeply frustrating.
Having a look over the certificate of analysis, performed by Marfleet Analytical Services, it looks like they’ve opted for a CBD isolate, with no other cannabinoids present. This is commonplace with many CBD based cooked goods, due to the fact when it is full spectrum it can affect the flavour quite strongly, so isolate works much better with cooking. When you think of the amount of terpenes present in hemp which can also provide differing tastes when at different quantities, choosing a CBD isolate allows the brand to focus on using other ingredients to affect the flavour.
Are These Vegan?
Yes they are, to my relief. I’m not normally a vegan, in fact I was a massive meat eater, but I’m doing an experimental month and have been completely vegan, so it would have made reviewing these that little bit harder.
Could You Taste The CBD?
Some CBD gummies taste absolutely exquisite, while others struggle to hide the taste that you also get with CBD oil, which is rather earthy and not overly pleasant. Fortunately, Naturecan have done a wonderful job and you can’t taste it at all. As previously mentioned, opting for an isolate often makes this easier to achieve.
The taste of the double chocolate flavour was great, it just tasted like a normal cookie you would hope to get from a supermarket or a bakery, you wouldn’t have a clue you were consuming 25mg of CBD when eating it.
How Much Protein Is In A Cookie?
You get 12 grams of protein per cookie, coming from a combination of hydrolysed wheat protein, pea protein and soy protein.
As you’ll notice, I haven’t mentioned whey protein, which is why it qualifies as vegan friendly. They also make sure the chocolate chips are dark chocolate so no milk is used.
As someone who loves to train, getting both my protein and CBD in the same source is amazing and is a much wanted combo. I’ve actually written an article on whether CBD is good post workout, covering how the anti-inflammatory properties of CBD help your body to recover, while the added protein source can help you to reach protein synthesis.
Where Can I Buy These From?
The Naturecan CBD infused cookies in either double chocolate or chocolate orange can be purchased from their website for £29.99. They do offer free delivery if you spend over £50, so I’d recommend considering a few of their other products, which I’ll be reviewing over the next few months.
