NATIVE SEED HEALTHY EDIBLES TO NOURISH BODY & MIND
ATIENTS OFTEN HAVE trouble finding non-GMO, gluten-free, dairy-free edibles that are, well… actually edible. Many offerings taste like someone stuffed a fruitcake full of schwag. Native Seeds addresses this need, offering healthy, labtested edibles as an alternative to smoked cannabis. Founded in Oakland by a husband and wife team, Native Seeds main products are a line of cannabis-infused protein bars called Lift Bars. Their latest edible, Protein Bites, features a 1:1 ratio of THC to CBD. These magical treats are powered by avocado-oil based Rick Simpson’s Oil. They come in soft, chewy, bite-sized bars; the smell of oats, syrup, and cinnamon is a delicious scent when the seal is broken.
This edible is so packed with goodies that it doesn’t seem free of anything. Organic oats, toasted rice, dates, raisins, and cacao chips are a combination complimenting each other eloquently, while enlightening the senses. Native Seeds’ products barely taste of cannabis, a result of the high-quality cannabis oil use in each treat. Hard to believe it’s healthy, just wait fifteen minutes or so after eating one and you probably won’t care. Reports of extreme, pain free relaxation are common, with stress and worries melting away. If indulging in more than a nibble, consider dedicating the day to wellness and rest, because we wouldn’t recommend making ® any plans. Why mess with peace?
