Pause Relaxation Chocolate Review | Chill Out and Return to Center

Hi friends! It’s time for another edible review! In this post I’m sharing Pause relaxation chocolates by 1906, the chocolate I use to de-stress and relax after a long week of balancing mom and work life. 1906’s holistic approach to plants and chocolate make their entire line effective at providing a variety of experiences, from energized to blissfully sleepy. Today it’s all about experiencing relaxation, and I’ll be talk about how Pause facilitates a deeply relaxing and de-stressed time. Let’s begin!


1906 | New Highs

1906’s mission is to create a new category of premium edibles, marrying the benefits of cacao, cannabis, and ethnobotanical ingredients, designed to appeal to responsible, informed, health conscious adults. Products that deliver absolutely safe, consistent and predictable experiences, helping you reconnect with your senses and addressing five different experiences with five truly exceptional tastes.


1906 makes luxury infused chocolates that taste great, have low and predictable doses, and are purposely made with different desired effects in mind. Right now they offer four types of product experiences but a fifth is to be announced. After this review, check out my earlier reviews of Go and Midnight, chocolates for energy and sleep.

The Art of Relaxation | Enhancing my sesh with Pause

I’ve consistently used Pause chocolates to enhance my first sesh of the weekend. You know that sesh I’m talking about. For me, it’s that sesh I plan when I know that my kids are safe with their dad, and I finally have a moment to disappear in my room, pull out a big bong, fire up the Xbox, and be accountable to no one for at least a couple of hours. For some adults the sesh I’m talking about is like a cocktail during Happy Hour. It’s the reward for another day of being a grownup, doing the right thing, no matter how boring or tedious it might seem. Those little rewards that make the drudgery of adulthood worth it.

Disconnect from overwhelming tensions and reconnect with your centered self. Come back to  what really matters the most. Pause’s dark milk chocolate, Magnolia and other plant extracts create a balanced and mellow state of mind perfect for cooling down your overheated soul.


Effects of Pause 

About 20 minutes after I eat a Pause, I feel a blanket of relaxation drop over me, starting from the top of my head and traveling to the tips of my toes. This is almost that classic edible feeling, ie. waves of pleasure coming on hard, only we’re talking 5 mg of THC here, so a single dose won’t have you “stoned’ in the traditional sense.

When Pause kicks in I find myself sinking into whatever surface I’m on, and reveling in an instant freedom from the day’s stress and anxieties. Waves of relaxation and euphoria lighten my mood and help me to center my focus on what really matters in life. Mainly, our relationships with ourself and others.

Deep introspection and quiet joy are par for the course with these chocolates. These are a wonderful addition to any night in, be it alone for self-care time or with a house full of friends or family. On a more productive note, I enjoy using Pause chocolates when I’m doing my weekly or monthly planning session. Just because you’re chill doesn’t mean you have to space out and stare at your hands. I love using mellow body highs to stimulate brainstorming, and Pause chocolates are a great source of that high.

Ingredients that Calm | Magnolia + L-Theanine + Cannabis Indica


1906 uses a variety of plant medicine in addition to cannabis. Pause features both L-Theanine and Magnolia.  Derived from green tea, L-Theanine stimulates the brain’s alpha waves providing a calm and serene experience. Magnolia has been used for thousands of years to treat anxiety. Amazingly, magnolia activates certain cannabinoid (CB) receptors and has the potential to be very effective in combination with THC and CBD.

Each Pause chocolate has 5 mg of CBD and 5 mg of THC. These low doses are just enough to feel the healing effects of cannabis without the getting super stoned. 

1906 uses only the highest quality, pesticide-free, single-strains in each product. Additionally, every 1906 experience is a 1:1 combination of THC for the mind and CBD for the body. This equal blend of our favorite cannabinoids makes each chocolate a reliable source of medication.


Always keep in mind that any edible or strain review is only one person’s experience. As I like to say, we are as varied and complex as the flower we smoke, and results vary between users. I have had a lot of success achieving calm and peaceful sessions with Pause chocolates, and I think you might too.

  1. Illegal stoner mom

    I could almost put myself in that experience by your description! Can we agree that prohibition is ruining free commerce?
