Crafted by Compassion Edibles, Black and White Tainted Truffles come in regular strength (100 milligrams of THC) and super strength (225 mg of THC). They consist of a cannabis-infused chocolate ganache coated in vanilla white chocolate and topped with a dark chocolate drizzle.
Compassion Edibles Produces A Variety Of Tainted Truffles
Based in the San Francisco Bay area, Compassion Edibles was founded by Mickey Martin in 2000 under the name Tainted Edibles. The company strives to produce the best-tasting, most effective infused edibles to cannabis patients in California, and they’ve been rapidly expanding their reach over the course of the last few weeks.
“Prior to their facilities being raided by the FDA in 2007, Compassion offered a total of 52 different products in various sizes and strengths.”
Compassion Edibles has been a patient favorite for over a decade – the company operated under the name Tainted Edibles before changing the name in 2007.
Prior to their facilities being raided by the FDA during the same year, the company offered a total of 52 different products in various sizes and strengths.
In 2013, the company decided to regroup and redesigned their product line, while paying homage to their past offerings. Compassion offers a variety of medicated cookies and snacks, and their list of specialties include: Chocolate Sea Salt Caramel Bar, Butterscotch Blondie, Granola, Chocolate Covered Pretzels and more.
Still, Compassion Edibles’ line of Tainted Truffles is what they are best known for. They come in 8 different flavors, spanning from classic Tainted Edibles recipes like Double Chocolate, Raspberry, and Peanut Butter all the way to more daring ones like Pistachio and Bacon Chocolate.
Regular Strength Black and White Tainted Truffle
After reviewing the French Chocolate Tainted Truffles, my expectations were incredibly high for the regular strength Black and White variety. Not only were they delicious, but the effects of eating just one truffle (50 mg THC) were perfect for my personal needs.
One of my favorite parts of the Tainted Truffles experience is the detailed information that Compassion provides on each individual package. The display includes a prominent warning label that reads, “CONTAINS CANNABIS”, as well as another warning that the product contains peanuts.
Furthermore, I was happy to see that Compassion Edibles clearly dictates which strains of cannabis they use in each recipe. The list of ingredients for the Black and White Tainted Truffles is as follows:
- Dark Chocolate (Cacao Beans, Pure Cane Sugar, Cocoa Butter, Soya Lecithin, Vanilla Beans)
- White Chocolate (Pure Cane Sugar, Cocoa Butter, Full Cream Milk, Lactose, Soya Lecithin, Vanilla Beans)
- Heavy Cream
- Corn Syrup
- Potassium Sorbate
- Cannabis Butter (Primarily Sour Diesel and OG Kush)
Also provided on the Tainted Truffle labeling is a note that estimates how much dried cannabis each package contains (≈8.36 grams), born on/best by dates, and a lot number in order to allow Compassion to track each batch they produce. The company recently added bar codes to their packaging as well, and we’ll be looking to update this review with pictures that reflect this change as soon as possible.
The only other piece of information I would personally like to see on Compassion Edible’s labeling is a more detailed breakdown of the cannabinoid profile. While it clearly provides the tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) content (100 mg), I would love to know how much cannabidiol (CBD), cannabinol (CBN), etc. is contained in each package.
How Might The Black and White Tainted Truffles Affect Me?
Judging from the appearance of Compassion Edibles‘ packaging, it’s clear that they aim to look like a product you could find in your local pharmacy. However, that thought is thrown out the window just as soon you see the artisan-style quality of the truffles themselves.
Black and White Tainted Truffles consist of a whipped dark chocolate ganache that is dipped in white chocolate, and then topped with a decadent dark chocolate drizzle. With such attention to detail, it’s pretty hard not to be excited for your first bite.
As far as the taste is concerned, the Black and White Tainted Truffles are a perfect mixture of dark and white chocolate. Furthermore, there is no detectable cannabis taste despite the fact they contain 100 mg of THC.
I found one (1) regular strength Tainted Truffle (50 mg THC) to be the perfect dose for my personal needs during the day. It offered noticeable relief from pent-up stress and anxiety in as little as 20 minutes.
These effects often lasted for about 3-4 hours, making an entire package the perfect infused edible option to get through a traditional 8-hour work day. On the other hand, eating both truffles at once was a great way to ward off pain and insomnia at the end of a long day.
