KIVA Confections - Cannabis, Refreshed
You’ve definitely seen these at your local dispensary or on the menu at GreenRush. Kiva Confections, California’s premier cannabis chocolatier, has been shaking up the edibles market since 2010, winning numerous awards in the process. And today, with over a dozen lines available for purchase, Kiva Confections is defining what quality cannabis chocolate in California needs to be.
KIVA Confections - The Best Cannabis Chocolate
Now, before we begin, we’d like to include the following disclaimer: We were not paid a cent to write this article. As with the majority of discerning cannabis users, we’re just big fans of KIVA. We like what they produce, how they do it and what they stand for. And we think you’ll like them, too.
KIVA Confections was founded back in 2010 as a not-for-profit cannabis collective. Unsatisfied with the contemporary state of the cannabis edible market, founders Scott Palmer and Kristi Knoblich decided to get a little artisan. They noticed that many products were unlabeled, untested and inconsistent in potency, and so endeavored to found a brand that represented the opposite: efficacy, food safety and business integrity.
The brand has gone from strength to strength ever since and now, arguably, has established itself as California’s most renowned edibles brand.
KIVA Confections - The Products
KIVA’s current roster of artisan cannabis edibles comprises over a dozen product lines. They produce cannabis-infused chocolate bars, squares, mints and chocolate-coated espresso beans, which all carry a hefty, consistent dose of THC, of course.
And the weed KIVA uses in their edibles is as curated as their product line. They only employ locally-sourced, California grown cannabis in all of their products. Working closely with farmers from plant to packaging, KIVA can guarantee that only the finest, ethical and cleanest strains make their way into their product line. Their latest line of CBD-heavy chocolate bars for example, available in ginger dark chocolate flavor, contains proprietary strains grown in Mendocino County - smack bang in the middle of the Emerald Triangle.
KIVA Bars are where it all started; they’re KIVA’s tasty ground-zero. They were released to the world back in 2010 and immediately became the go-to edible for thousands of patients throughout California. Since then, the company has expanded its line to incorporate new flavors, potencies and strains, and their portfolio is only set to grow through 2017.

Available in eight distinct flavors, KIVA’s key creations come with their contents clearly labeled on the packets. Patients can therefore easily shop based on the effect they desire and choose between lines that are high in THC, CBD-heavy, or simply based on flavor.
Petra Mints are KIVA Confections line of cannabis-infused mints, containing only a whisper of THC. Per mint, users will be consuming only 2.5mg of THC, allowing patients to remain moderately medicated and in control. And with all Petra flavors being 100% sugar-free, made with only the best Mother Nature has to offer, one packet of Petra Mints is perfect for clearing your mind, body and spirit.
KIVA’s range currently comprises two refreshing flavors, Moroccan Mint and Eucalyptus.

KIVA Terra Bites are one of KIVA’s most well-known and most successful creations. Available in two versions, chocolate coated coffee beans or chocolate coated blueberries, the nuts can be as moreish as they are effective, containing 5mg of THC per bite.
KIVA’s Espresso Terra Bites actually picked up the 2013 SF Patient’s Choice Award. Each Tanzanian coffee bean is coated in delectable dark chocolate and, coming in a resealable container, are the perfect way to dose throughout the day.

KIVA Minis is the final line in KIVA’s range and are essentially smaller versions of the renowned KIVA bar. Designed in order to help users better moderate their usage, KIVA Minis allow for patients to indulge one square at a time - topping up their usage as they see fit.
