Kiva confections produces high quality marijuana edibles.

One of the best-known medical cannabis companies in California, KIVA Confections creates cannabis-infused chocolate products.

The company was born out of a need for an edible product that was potent, consistent and enjoyable for consumers. In early 2010 the cannabis edible market was desperately underserved; the products available were untested, unlabeled and inconsistent in potency.

To solve this problem, founders Scott Palmer and Kristi Knoblich began exploring novel approaches to the concept of medicating through food. After visiting a local chocolatier, working with expert cannabis cultivators and certified analytics laboratories, as well as a lot of trial and error, KIVA was born.

To accompany the new product, its founders developed a mission statement that would go beyond simply delivering a better edible. It included a commitment to efficacy, food safety and business integrity which continues today.

After nine months of careful development, KIVA Confections was launched. Immediately patients took notice and fell in love with the product for its certified potency, incredible taste and informative packaging.

Since then the company has grown to encompass over a dozen varieties of chocolate edibles, while developing a loyal and growing customer base throughout hundreds of dispensaries in California. Its artisan confections have garnered multiple awards and recognition in the marketplace — including “Best Edible” at both the San Francisco and LA High Times Cannabis Cups in 2013.

With over 30 employees dedicated to quality, food safety and compassionate care, KIVA continues to redefine the edible cannabis category — and leads the way in developing premium quality, great-tasting products that deliver certified amounts of medicinal cannabis via a delicious, artisan-inspired chocolate recipe.
