Five CBD carries full-spectrum CBD products including a new line of Chocolate Squares with 2mg THC per square. Check out our review of Five CBD’s new Chocolate Squares to see what the big deal is about.
Five CBD hails from Laguna Beach, California, and is a leading provider of high-quality, full-spectrum CBD. Its name comes from the company’s simple rule of maintaining a 5:1 ratio of CBD to minor hemp compounds (terpenes, flavonoids, and other cannabinoids) when creating products.
This means that full-spectrum by Five CBD is different from full-spectrum by other brands—and you best remember that. All of its products are US Farm Act compliant—even new products that advertise the presence of THC.
I’d previously tried Five CBD’s 1500mg Full Spectrum CBD Oil, as well as the 50mg Full Spectrum CBD Gummies and 25mg Full Spectrum CBD + 3mg Melatonin Gummies. You can check out my Five CBD review here, but spoiler alert: I was satisfied with all of those products.
This time around, Five CBD sent over its new chocolate squares in the Original Milk Chocolate and Sea Salt Dark Chocolate flavors.
Five CBD’s Full Spectrum CBD Original Milk Chocolate Squares come in a brown and orange bag that contains exactly 10 squares. I’ll be frank—the fact that this product and packaging boldly states that each square contains 2mg THC might seem daunting to newcomers at first. However, rest assured that these products are perfectly legal in the United States under the Farm Act of 2018. As with all its products, Five CBD includes a QR code that allows you to quickly view detailed lab results.
Even though the entire bag contains 20mg THC, this is still less than 0.3% THC by weight.
I ate one square before lunch after a morning hike to combat my aches and pains, and just to chill out. The milk chocolate taste was pure and creamy, and there was no grassy, plant matter taste.
As for the effect? 50mg CBD is my new minimum dosage amount, so one square was perfect. And honestly, I wasn’t sure I’d feel 2mg THC at all, but within an hour after my meal, I felt a light head high. What my body felt was much more noticeable, though. My aches and pains were sufficiently dealt with. I also felt chipper and significantly less inflamed all the way until bedtime.
The noticeable THC part of the high was gone sooner than that, but it was a perfect cherry on top for the CBD experience, in my opinion.
Ease of use: 5/5
Overall score: 4.9/5
The Five CBD Full Spectrum CBD Sea Salt Dark Chocolate Squares come in a brown and blue bag. It also contains 10 squares and has the same dosage per square: 50mg of CBD and 2mg of THC.
Full disclosure—I didn’t start enjoying dark chocolate until well after my teens. Biting into Five CBD’s dark chocolate squares took me back to that first bite of dark chocolate I ever enjoyed. After the taste was gone, the effects were similar to the milk chocolate square—but a little more euphoric, possibly because of the increased amounts of anandamide in the chocolate itself.
I’ve eaten a lot of edibles in my day, and in my previous experiences, I have seen firsthand that some cannabis users find more medicinal benefits from edibles that have a higher CBD to THC ratio. I’ve seen 1:1, 5:1, 10:1, and even 20:1 at licensed dispensaries. How these affect you will vary depending on your body’s endocannabinoid system; however, it’s reasonable to expect a similar entourage effect even with different subjects.
What Five CBD has created with their product is a solid 25:1 CBD:THC ratio edible that is made from hemp-derived supplements—and that’s not counting the myriad other cannabinoids that Five CBD makes sure is present in their full-spectrum CBD.
Given the fact that the mere etymology of Five CBD’s company name is a result of harnessing the not well-known entourage effect for their consumers, I’m not surprised to see such a useful product hit the shelves—and I’m so happy that it’s available to so many people.
Ease of use: 5/5

Call it a THC microdose if you want, but that really muddles the fact that you’re putting in all the other cannabinoids needed to achieve an entourage effect. Five CBD’s 2mg THC chocolate squares are a delicious and efficacious treat for new and experienced users alike. You can eat it at any time of day—even up to an hour before sleeping.
Five CBD has done it again with their new products. I’m excited to see them continue to push the envelope to the benefit of all of us.
