The Amasuni Butsuda is a Cannabis Dessert Shaped Like Buddha

The Amasumi Butsuda chocolates by Cacao Magic in Japan offer an edible cannabis dessert shaped to creatively look like miniature Buddha heads. The sacred chocolate designs are unconventional in shape as they perhaps offer spiritual and medicinal properties.

The chocolates are made using a combination of hemp and charcoal, offering an unconventional taste that is sweet yet robust. Though charcoal might be an unorthodox edible to find in Western desserts, it is a more notably used ingredient in Asian cuisine. The sweets feature a detailed design that replicates the aesthetic of the infamous Buddha statue, from the neck up. While the Amasumi Butsuda does contain traces of hemp, many of the other chocolate treats sold through Cacao Magic do not contain traces of cannabis extract.
