When it comes to cannabis edibles, the first thought that many people have is infused-brownies. While still a popular treat, cannabis brownies are just the tip of the iceberg. The edibles market has exploded since the legalization of medical and recreational cannabis in California and other states across the US. No matter what your preference, you can find many types of edibles at dispensaries.
Brownies are still a popular cannabis-infused baked good. You can find a wide array of different flavors, such as triple chocolate and rocky road. They’re not the only baked treats you’ll find in dispensaries, though. You can find cookies made by local brands that make flavors such as chocolate chip, double chocolate, peanut butter, and lemon.
These aren’t the only cannabis-infused baked goods you can find at dispensaries. You may also come across cupcakes, cake pops, tarts, rolls, macarons, and more, enabling you to find just about any sweet treat that meets your needs.
The only thing better than chocolate is cannabis-infused chocolate. You have several brands to choose from, each of which are creating high-quality, gourmet bars, truffles, and other confections. One of the most well-known cannabis chocolatiers is Kiva Confections, a California-based company that uses California-grown cannabis. They produce a variety of delicious bars in such flavors as toffee crunch, blackberry, and mint chocolate chip.
Other cannabis chocolates worth investigating include:
- Stoke’s Truffles
- Punch Edibles
Gummies are a fun and easy way to get your dose of cannabis. They provide a fruity alternative to chocolate, brownies, and cookies. Companies make infused-gummies in an array of shapes, such as rings, bears, worms, and more. They also make their gummies in different flavors, such as cherry, strawberry, watermelon, and sour apple.
Some popular brands to look for the next time you visit your local dispensary include:
- Plus Gummies
- Kushy Punch
- Hubby’s Fruit Belt Rolls
- Soul Sugar
If you prefer hard candies to chewy ones, there are several cannabis-infused varieties on the market. With hard candies, you can savor the flavor longer, letting them melt more slowly in your mouth. Canna Candies makes individually-wrapped hard candies in 20 different flavors. Each piece contains 60 milligrams of THC.
The company also makes 100-milligram lollipops in 10 different flavors.
Edibles aren’t limited to foods; you’ll find several cannabis-infused beverages in dispensaries as well. One brand to check out is Lagunitas Hi-Fi Hops. Made by the California-based beer brewing company Lagunitas, this beverage is a zero-alcohol, zero-calorie cannabis-infused hoppy sparkling seltzer. There are two options to choose from, 18:1 CBD to THC and 5:5 CBD to THC. Lagunitas made the IPA-inspired seltzers using everything they know about hops, left out the alcohol, and infused cannabis.
Other cannabis-infused beverages worth trying include:
- Habit Crafted sparkling coolers
- Cannabis Quenchers
- Dixie Elixirs
