Cannabidiol (CBD) is a chemical compound found in many different plants, including hemp / cannabis, that has non-intoxicating properties. Discovered in 1940, Cannabidiol is a phytocannabinoid that is one of at least 113 identified cannabinoids in cannabis plants and makes for up to 40% of the plants extract. Research on cannabidiol has been conducted for years in countries like Israel and is expanding including preliminary studies of anxiety, cognition, movement disorders, and pain.
There are several ways to extract CBD oil from the hemp plant. At Difiori, we prefer CO2 to extract the oil as this method is considered a purer, cleaner form of extracting CBD. CO2 extraction creates a high-quality, safe, and pure product, which is why we favor this technique.
Swiss Chocolate has a long and illustrious history that dates back centuries. The earliest Swiss chocolatiers, through no small amount of trial and error, were able to utilize cocoa beans harvested from the fertile soil of colonial controlled Ghana, blend them with sugar from the tropical Caribbean, and finally, with pure rich milk from the dairy cows of the high Swiss Alps. The worldʼs most popular Swiss brands have earned their popularity from well-balanced flavors, delicate creaminess, and most importantly, the attention to detail that can only come from experience, dedication and passion.
Yes.Our 70% Swiss dark chocolate and Swiss coconut chocolate are both vegan.

Yes. Itʼs one of our core mission to ensure we make a difference for cocoa farmers, their families, and communities. Itʼs no secret: centuries of Western colonialism solidified a culture where farm workers across the world were treated unfairly, often inhumanely, and for a miniscule amount of pay. Thankfully, decades of increasing public awareness have given way to the concept of “fair trade,” in which farmers are able to be paid a competitive wage and work in conditions that preserve their humanity. The cocoa beans used to make our chocolate are collected only from fair-trade sources — a dedication that forms the cornerstone of Difiori.
Couverture chocolate is the name of a class of very high-quality chocolate that has a higher percentage of cocoa butter than other chocolates. Unlike regular chocolate, couverture chocolate is ground to a finer texture during the process of production and contain a higher percentage of cocoa butter compared to the other ingredients. These differences blend together to produce a superior texture and flavor that makes couverture the preferred chocolate for many people.
Tempering refers to a heating process which smooths out imperfections and gives the chocolates a shiny appearance and a crisp snap that you recognize as soon as you break a piece off a bar. The tempering process is typically reserved only for the highest quality chocolates due to the extra time and labor involved.

Yes. Our highest priority is producing safe, and clean CBD infused chocolate products. This is a commitment we made from inception, and it guides every decision we make. We know we are only as good as the quality of our products, so we approach our testing program with innovation and constant refinement. The hemp used is tested for pesticides to ensure that the CBD produced is worthy of our chocolate. Then we test the extractions for safety, potency, and residual solvents to ensure that they are clean before adding them to our recipes. Finally, we carry out one last test on the finished products to ensure they meet our strict standards. We call this our Triple Test Guarantee!
