The world of CBD, or cannabidiol, is a wide and wild one these days-it’s going full-tilt boogie and there’s lots to learn about and even more to try. Plenty of myths and misconceptions swirl around this product (yes, it’s derived from the hemp plant but no, it won’t get you high). There are tinctures and drops and capsules filled with the extract, but here for the CTbites crowd, we’re going to focus on the stuff you can EAT: gummies, chocolates, honey, and even drinks. Along with these products, what is really great about the companies and stores selling them is that they also offer a wealth of information and are happy to pass along their knowledge. After all, these products are being used for everything from aches and pains, to help getting a good night’s rest to helping quell anxiety (hello, 2020). This previously stigmatized arena is seeing a great up-tick in activity because it’s looking like there is a well-spring of beneficial possibilities. Note: These listing/products are not intended to take the place of medical advice. Please consult with your doctor before starting any new regime or product. CBD oil, CBD topicals, and other CBD products have become popular in Connecticut in recent years. Take a closer look at Connecticut's hemp regulations and where you can buy CBD in Connecticut.

Fritzzz: Premium CBD Infused Chocolate, Norwalk & Online
For over 13 years, Danish born Fritz Knipschildt, and the House of Knipschildt, have been renowned for creating exquisite quality artisan chocolate. Knipschildt has recently launched a new line of chocolate truffles and chocolate bars that are infused with premium, full spectrum CBD. Introducing…Fritzzz. The Food Network once said “Knipschildt’s creations took him from a small CT apartment to an international chocolate sensation. From bonbons to truffles and sauces, Knipshildt translates into chocolate heaven.” Add CBD to the recipe and we’re talking pure magic.
While Fritz is constantly coming up with new flavors, the Fritzzz product line currently consists of five chocolate bars, each with 75mg of CBD including: Dark 85% Toasted Coconut, Dark 70% Ginger & Blueberry, Dark 70% Cranberry & Orange, classic Dark 70% Chocolate, and slightly more potent 100mg bar. Additionally, Fritzzz produces small boxes of six Salted Caramels and a Dark Chocolate Collection, each tasty morsel infused with 10 mg of CBD.

A guide to buying CBD in Connecticut
CBD oil, CBD topicals and other CBD products have become popular in Connecticut in recent years. In this article, we’ll take a closer look at Connecticut’s hemp regulations and where you can buy CBD in Connecticut.
Is CBD legal in Connecticut?*
Since 2015, with the passing of House Bill No. 5780, CBD products have been available for purchase in the state of Connecticut. According to the bill, Connecticut does not classify hemp-derived CBD as a controlled substance as long as the hemp doesn’t contain more than 0.3% THC.
And in 2017, the passing of Senate Bill No. 603 opened up even more doors for the hemp industry in Connecticut, allowing for CBD products made from hemp to be manufactured in the state. If you want examples of what may be made, look at this website. It also helped kick off the state’s pilot hemp growing program.
Is hemp legal to grow in Connecticut?
Yes. It is legal to grow hemp in Connecticut. However, if you’re interested in growing hemp in Connecticut, you’ll need to apply for a grower’s license from Connecticut’s Department of Agriculture before getting started.
Is marijuana legal in Connecticut?
Medical marijuana is legal in the state of Connecticut, but only those who are licensed by the state’s medical marijuana program are legally allowed to produce, manufacture or sell products that have more than 0.3% THC. Products containing marijuana-derived CBD generally have a THC concentration over 0.3% and in Connecticut, you’ll need a prescription to purchase these products from a licensed medical marijuana dispensary. This differs from states like Oregon where marijuana can be brought, from places such as cannon beach stores, and be used recreationally.
Where to buy CBD oil in Connecticut
In Connecticut, CBD oils, CBD topicals, CBD capsules and CBD pet products have been available for purchase since 2015. You can find CBD for sale at a wide variety locations across the state, including health and wellness shops; smoke shops; yoga studios and gyms; specialty and gift shops; gas stations and golf pro shops. Or, you can order online and have your CBD shipped conveniently to your house. If you’re lucky enough to be in Canada, where recreational marijuana is allowed, you might want to explore something a little stronger than regular CBD, like these phoenix tears cbd.
