New Chronic on the Block

Chronic Candy doesn't quite fall into the Site We've Been Digging category, but we did want to bring it to your attention. The site sells hemp-related products including but not limited to candy, cologne and, of course, lip balm. Their most popular product appears to be the Chronic Candy lollipop (at least that's what I surmised from the scantily clad girls and bud-flashing homeboy types on the annoyingly flash-heavy homepage).

The company has two seemingly contradictory tag lines for their maryjane candies: "Relax, it's just candy" and "It's not just a candy, it's a lifestyle". Okay, which is it? They do state explicitly (in tiny, greyed-out print) that their product is "100% legal and does not contain THC or Marijuana. Some of our products do contain hemp essential oil, and therefore have the flavor and taste of some hemp related products that you may or may not be familiar with."

Oh, awesome! Finally, something with just the TASTE of pot. That's the best part!*

As this article discusses, the makers have been under fire from various lawmakers for potentially luring kids to drugs. This is something that, of course, Chronic Candy denies. Since when has colorful packaging and fun flavor appealed to kids?


*Chaptastic does not condon non-prescription drug use. So, you know, get a prescription.

Ha! Now all we need is an -flavored lip balm, and we've got a party.
