Inside the MÜV Marijuana Edibles Kitchen
Each room in the MÜV Cultivation facility plays its own music. And no, we’re not talking about the classical, reggae, pop or other genres chosen by team members. We’re talking about the rustle of the leaves. The sound of the fans. The shuffle of booties and scrubs. The movement of tables.
As you move along the life cycle of the plant in the facility, those noises change to form a different tune, but the upbeat feeling of the music made in a day’s work at MÜV stays the same. The MÜV Kitchen is no exception.
Stepping inside is a sensory overload in the best possible way. The sights, the smells, the sounds, the textures, the Chefs moving and working so fluidly around one another it appears as a dance that only they seem to know, to music only they can make.
In the edibles Kitchen, the melody takes form in the soft rustling of sugar being poured into a bowl. The rap of ingredients hitting the table. The scraping of the edges of the bowls, and the rap of pots being set upon a burner. The snaps as pieces of edibles are broken apart. The taps as pieces are shifted and broken ones removed. But the words of the song take form in the scents.
In the MÜV Soft Chews and cannabis Lozenges room, it’s the scent of sweet sugar layered with berries and mango, tangerine and watermelon. A tropical paradise that lingers on your clothing when you leave. One step into the Chocolates Room, and there is no mistaking where you are. While the sweet scent still hangs in the air, the chorus of chocolate demands to be heard. Milk and Dark mix together to produce a fragrance unlike any other; it’s as if you can taste the slight bitterness of the dark chocolate and creaminess of milk.
Yes, you read that correctly. MÜV Lozenges and Chocolates will be joining the marijuana edibles lineup produced in the MÜV Edibles Kitchen this spring.
MÜV Marijuana Lozenges
Adding cannabis Lozenges to the MÜV Edibles lineup was an easy decision. Lozenges in the form of candy were touted as medicinal in the 16th and 17th centuries, used as an aid for everything from gastrointestinal issues to sore throats. Maybe that’s why grandma always kept them in her purse!
While the lozenges and cough drops of today add ingredients such as menthol to soothe throats, hard candies are still touted as effective. Consuming hard candy increases the amount of saliva produced in your mouth, which then coats your throat to potentially ease a tender throat. The addition of analgesic THC and/or anti-inflammatory CBD may only further that effectiveness.
The Lozenge Formulations
MÜV Lozenges live up to the legacy of hard candy. As soon as you place the domed Lozenge in your mouth, salivation increases and somehow intensifies the fruit flavors. And, bonus, this sublingual consumption of cannabis can lead to quicker onset times. Lozenges begin with fruit-forward ingredients and are infused with premium MÜV Distillate. Distillate contains no terpenes, meaning Lozenges are not indica, sativa, nor hybrid. Instead, they are infused with activated THC and/or CBD.
THC is the cannabinoid associated with pain relief and has shown to aid in appetite stimulation as well as sleep. The addition of CBD in a 1:1 ratio allows the cannabinoids to work in tandem to potentially address a wide variety of patient concerns, such as pain, mood disorders, and/or inflammation. And, the addition of CBD has been said to lessen the psychoactivity for patients, making it a discreet way to achieve a dose throughout the day.
Lozenges are gluten-free and are showcased in three flavors, each providing the faintest hint of cannabis:
- Green Apple: a tart apple flavor, providing 10 mg THC per piece, with 10 pieces per package
- Orange: a tangy citrus flavor, providing 10 mg THC per piece, with 10 pieces per package
- 1:1 Wildberry: a soft berry flavor, providing 5 mg THC and 5 mg CBD per piece, with 10 pieces per package
Each Lozenge is individually wrapped, ensuring each dose remains as fresh as possible, and that you won’t accidentally eat a second piece. The wrapped pieces will be packaged within a child-resistant bag; to open, simply grip each side of the bag, slide in opposite directions and pull apart.
MÜV Marijuana Chocolates
If weed Lozenges were an easy choice to add to our medical marijuana edibles lineup, Chocolates were a no-brainer.
Chocolate has been consumed in various forms for over 2,000 years – some historians believe its use may go back as far as 4,400 years. The Latin word for chocolate translates to “fruit of the gods,” and the now-staple treat was so valued it was used as currency by the Aztecs. Today, the value of chocolate can be measured in how much is consumed. In the U.S., that’s an average of a whopping 9.5 pounds per person per year.
To live up to this rich legacy, we’ve spent our time formulating marijuana infused Milk and Dark Chocolates that are not only effective and consistent, but delicious.
The Chocolate Formulations
Inspired by Belgian chocolatiers and crafted using natural ingredients you can trust, MÜV Chocolates quite literally melt in your mouth as you chew, becoming creamier with each subsequent movement of your jaw – with little to no cannabis flavor. Soon to be available in both Milk and Dark Chocolate, each piece will contain 10 mg of THC and, like Lozenges, are formulated with premium MÜV Distillate.
The primary difference between the two formulations is ingredients. Dark Chocolate, unlike Milk, is not only dairy-free, but gluten-free as well. To ensure no milk allergens are introduced into the item, Dark Chocolate is formulated using separate utensils and machinery.
Both Milk and Dark Chocolates pieces, like Lozenges, will be individually wrapped. This ensures fresh product and prevents you from absently munching on medicated chocolate, and prevents fat blooms. When you eat a piece of chocolate from a bar that does not reseal, if the chocolate is not tempered (heated in small increments then cooled in small increments to stabilize) properly, the fats within the chocolate will separate and create a film on the chocolate. With MÜV Chocolates, you can rest assured that each piece will remain fresh, with all ingredients intact, for your medicating experience. Like Lozenges, the wrapped pieces will reside in a childproof bag.
Speaking of pieces, each MÜV Chocolates piece is segmented, allowing you to evenly split a 10 mg piece into two 5 mg doses. This is a great feature for patients just starting a medical marijuana edibles routine that requires a smaller dose.
The MÜV Marijuana Edibles Kitchen
Consistency is absolutely key when it comes to producing edibles, and something the MÜV Kitchen takes incredibly seriously. Each marijuana edible is thoroughly infused in small batches, achieved by adding the essential cannabinoids during the cooking process with the use of a large, measured syringe. This allows you to know that splitting MÜV Milk or Dark Chocolates in half will provide a 5 mg dose.
A sterile environment, too, is essential to creating medical cannabis edibles. You can rest assured knowing the MÜV Kitchen is just that – spotless, with ingredients clearly labeled and separated. The MÜV Chefs work diligently to ensure their intimate Kitchen remains meticulously clean.
Whether you’re interested in Lozenges, Chocolates or Wana Soft Chews, you can feel confident in the quality and consistency of the marijuana edibles produced in the MÜV Kitchen.
Remember: When it Comes to Cannabis Edibles, Start Low And Go Slow!
Edibles are a great solution for patients that require long-lasting effects with smoke-free delivery of medical marijuana. But – patients should remember the adage: start low and go slow
When ingested, THC converts to 11-hydroxy-THC, a compound five times more psychoactive than THC. Because of this, newcomers to edibles will want to consume a 2.5-5 mg dose to start, which is easily achieved with the sectioned MÜV Chocolates.
For those who prefer fruit-based edibles, Wana Soft Chews are an ideal starting point as the marijuana gummy-like texture can be cut into pieces to achieve smaller doses. Keeping MÜV CBD Cannabis Tincture on-hand during edibles dosing is recommended, as CBD has been shown to counteract uncomfortable effects presented by THC.
