After we released our Select Spectrum blend this summer, we received lots of positive feedback. So we decided to collaborate with a local bakery here in Texas (again) to bring you our Select Spectrum Cocoa Squares. Watch the video below to get the full lowdown on this new Hometown Hero edible:

Select Spectrum Cocoa Squares & Bundles

What is Select Spectrum?

Select Spectrum Cocoa Squares with Hemp-Derived Delta-9 THC and Marshmallows

Select Spectrum is a blend of hemp-derived cannabinoids that features a 1:1 ratio of hemp-derived CBD to hemp-derived Delta-9 THC. No matter how that ratio is expressed, the Delta-9 THC content of a product never exceeds a 0.3% concentration on a dry weight basis.

Since the 2018 Farm Bill, hemp and hemp-derived cannabinoids have been legal on a federal level. And after the bill, many states adopted similar legislation in this regard.

At Hometown Hero, we go to great lengths working with a legal team to keep our customers informed about where they can and cannot purchase our products.

As of October 14, 2021, Select Spectrum products are legal in all 50 states, Washington D.C. and Puerto Rico.

So why did we make this blend of hemp-derived cannabinoids?

Alone, cannabinoids (compounds found in cannabis) can have their own distinct effects. But together, they can really help bring out the best in each other. This synergistic result is known as “the entourage effect,” and the Select Spectrum blend promotes this.

Cocoa Squares Cannabinoid Content

COA for Select Spectrum Coco Squares

You may have noticed that our Cocoa Squares are a bit bigger than our Select Spectrum Gummies. Despite the greater quantity, the Select Spectrum ratios remain the same, and the hemp-derived Delta-9 THC concentration is no greater than 0.3% on a dry weight basis.

Each Cocoa Squares as a whole contains 300mg of CBD, 300mg Delta-9 THC, and other minor cannabinoids, all sourced from hemp.

However, if you’re familiar with other Hometown Hero squares products, such as our Rainbow Squares and Cinna Crunch Squares, then you might recognize that they’re scored in quarters.

Each quarter (or mini square) contains 75mg of CBD, 75mg of Delta-9 THC, and other minor cannabinoids that are all hemp-derived.

If you’re familiar with our Select Spectrum Gummies, that’s the equivalent of 30 gummies for the whole Cocoa Squares and 7.5 gummies per quarter.

When it comes to trying any hemp-derived product, it’s always good to start off small, and our Cocoa Squares are no exception. That means cutting out a small piece, see how that affects you, and then decide where you want to proceed from there.

Cocoa Squares Flavor

So we’ve gone through Select Spectrum and how the blend is expressed in our Cocoa Squares. But how do they taste?

Hometown Hero provided the cannabinoids, but the Cocoa Squares were crafted in the same bakery that did our Cinna Crunch Squares and Rainbow Squares. In short, if you’re a fan of gooey marshmallow meeting the decadence of chocolate, then you’re in for a treat.

One interesting aspect to note is how the piney flavor of hemp compliments the taste of the chocolate. It doesn’t necessarily conflict with it, but rather, it melds nicely into an accented cocoa profile.

We can go on about these squares, but we hope that you’ll see for yourself!
