Ask a friend that speaks French.

WHERE ARE DÉFONCÉ PRODUCTS MADE?

From conception to creation to packaging, it's all done in our custom, state-of the-art confectionary facility in Oakland, California. At 40,000 square feet, it’s  the largest edibles manufacturing facility in the entire world.

WHY DÉFONCÉ?

Our goal is to elevate the edible experience. We provide an edibles brand you can trust and rely on every time, with a focus on creating the highest quality cannabis-infused edibles possible, presented in a luxe, discreet, yet enticing fashion.

WHAT MAKES DÉFONCÉ DIFFERENT?

Think of us as edibles that have gone gourmet. We source only the finest Belgian chocolate and premium California cannabis extract, and we marry the two via our unique, multi-step Clean Infusion Process™ for a confection that is as consistent as it is delicious. The quality and delectable taste of our chocolate can hold its own with the best in the world, all while delivering a clean and safe high, designed for everyone to enjoy.

IS DÉFONCÉ INVOLVED WITH ANY PHILANTHROPIC ACTIVITIES?

Great chocolate needs great cocoa beans. And great cocoa beans rely on caring cocoa farmers, which is why we’ve partnered with the Cocoa Horizons Foundation. We are giving back by reinvesting a portion of every Défoncé edible purchase, to support our farmers with education, training, and community projects in the countries of Côte d’Ivoire, Ghana, and Tanzania. Because a happier cocoa farmer means a better future for cocoa.

The Chocolate

WHERE DO YOU SOURCE YOUR CHOCOLATE?

All of our chocolate is sustainably sourced from a respected Belgian gourmet chocolate manufacturer that has mastered bean selection, blending, and traditional whole bean roasting for over 100 years.

WHAT PERCENTAGE OF DÉFONCÉ CHOCOLATE IS CACAO?

We use four cacao percentages across our products:

  • White: 31%

  • Milk: 53%

  • Dark: 66%

  • Super Dark: 81%

WHAT’S CLEAN INFUSION?

Our unique five-step Clean Infusion Process allows us to combine quality chocolate with premium cannabis extract in a way that brings out the best in both, delivering a delectable confection that is consistent in dosage, safe to ingest, and beautiful to behold. It requires a bit more time and patience, but it’s worth the effort. Once we have our pure extract, we mix it with our base, stirring it constantly for 24 hours to achieve optimal homogenization. This allows us to be more precise with our doses in each and every serving.

Is Défoncé organic?

While our cannabis is farmed without pesticides or added fertilizer, and the dark chocolate and milk we use are from organic sources, we sadly can’t use the term “organic” on any of our confections. This is due to the FDA not allowing this term to be used in association with any cannabis products, as the federal government currently doesn’t recognize cannabis as legal.

ARE DÉFONCÉ CHOCOLATES VEGAN OR GLUTEN-FREE?

Only our Dark and Dark+ chocolate bars, bites, and squares are vegan-safe, while nearly all of our confections are gluten-free, with the exception of our Espresso Milk Chocolate bar.

DO DÉFONCÉ CHOCOLATES CONTAIN DAIRY OR NUTS?

All of our products are manufactured in a facility that produces products that may contain dairy and/or nuts. Please take extra caution with those who have allergies to either.

 
 

the Cannabis

What’s the quality of the cannabis used in your product?

We only use premium California cannabis in our confections, free of pesticides, solvents, or micro-organisms.

How much should I consume if I’m new to cannabis?

For beginners, we recommend trying half a serving (2.5 grams). Remember: you can always have more, but you can never have less.

What’s the difference between THC and CBD?

Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is the primary agent responsible for creating the ‘high’ associated with recreational cannabis use. It’s also the sole cannabinoid in Défoncé’s products. In contrast, cannabidiol (CBD) is non-psychoactive, which means that it will not get the user high.

How long does it take for the effects to kick in?

Typically, 30 to 60 minutes. (Sooner if you eat on an empty stomach). It also depends on your metabolism. People with faster metabolisms may feel the effects after 30 minutes, yet people with slower metabolisms may not feel the effects for 2 hours.

How long do the effects last?

The experience can last between 4 to 6 hours depending on the dose.

What does it feel like?

The high that accompanies edibles tends to be more relaxing and euphoric than the high experienced through smoking.

What should I do if I eat too much?

Stay calm and remember that the feeling is only temporary. Lie or sit down, close your eyes, and try to relax. If you are with other people, let them know how you’re feeling so they can help. If your discomfort becomes so intense that you think you need medical attention, ask someone to take you to the emergency room or call 9-1-1. Do not try to drive anywhere.
