Summer is about to kick into high gear. Whether you want to chill out or go wild, there are some fun cannabis edibles that can help you along the way. Here is a list of our ten favorites to turn your ordinary day into something more.
Edibles are popular with cannabis newbies, as well as longtime advocates. They offer a clean, and convenient way to enjoy your intake of THC and CBD to meet your particular need. The dosage is more consistent than inhalation methods and has the flexibility to microdose easily.
We start off with a new variation of a household favorite – Madame Munchie Peanut Butter. This woman and LGBTQ+ owned company has been making award-winning treats described as “Paris Chic, Cali Chill” since 2014. This healthy snack is vegan, gluten free, and sugar free. It is made with house-made roasted peanut butter, blended with a sungrown, Mendocino County cannabis infused organic coconut butter. (Madame Munchie Peanut Butter – 100mg jar with 5mg measuring spoon)
Kiva is obsessed with blending the perfect strain with the ideal edible. They took legendary cannabis varieties known for their fruity notes and created delicious chewable Lost Farm Gummies. These aren’t your ordinary gummy snacks – these extra-strength edibles are made with Live Resin for the ultimate kick. If you find a favorite stock up because they tend to sell out. (Lost Farm – 100mg per pack, 10mg per gummy, 10 units)
Think you’re too old for bedtime milk & cookies? Kiva rekindles the relationship with that familiar comfort food faster than you can count one sheep, two sheep. This dreamtime snack is part of their popular Terra Bites line, bite-size chocolate covered confections. With a crunchy cookie center, the Kiva Milk and Cookies CBN Chocolate Terra Bites have just the right blend of THC and CBN to help you recharge with a cozy rest. (Kiva CBN Terra Bite – 100mgTHC:40mgCBN per pack, 5mgTHC:2mgCBN per piece, 20 units)
The harmonious union between old world European candy-making and new world Northern California cannabis has taken place under an Emerald Sky. The long-time candy makers hit the market with cannabis-infused confections in 2018 and have been winning awards ever since. They were the first in class, introducing their Emerald Sky Licorice as a cannabis edible. It never melts, making it an ideal summer treat. Available in Indica, Sativa, and Hybrid blends, you are sure to find your perfect match. (Emerald Sky Licorice – 100mg per pack, 10mg per serving, 10 units)
The Emerald Sky Hard Fruit Drops offer mouth-watering flavor with a light dose of just 5mg of THC in each individually wrapped candy. The delicious, artisan-crafted candy offers great fruity flavors in Indica, Sativa, and Hybrid blends. This is a convenient on-the-go edible and even has a sample size 2-pack. (Emerald Sky Hard Candy – 100mg pack, 5mg per serving, 20 units)
Peanut butter has been a long-time favorite for satisfying post-cannabis cravings. Therefore, it should be no surprise that it is a popular edible flavor. But with so many peanut butter connoisseurs among us, the edible must be just right. It says a lot that Emerald Sky Peanut Butter Cups are their best-selling confection. This ultimate comfort food is available in Sativa, Indica, and Hybrid varieties with regular and double dose strength. It also comes in a convenient single serving size pack. (Emerald Sky PB Cups – 100mg per pack, 10mg per serving, 10 units)
And to prove how seriously Emerald Sky takes their edibles, they offer free recipes for irresistible treats made from their confections. You’ll find indulgences such as No Bake Cheesecake, Chocolate Lasagna, and Chocolate Cookie Rice Krispy Treats here.
Speaking of chocolate, if you are into discovering tasty new blends look no further than the Cream & Crumble chocolate bar from Coda Signature. The single origin Ecuadorian white chocolate is perfectly blended with tart sour cream and lemon to create a rich, creamy exotic delight. Speckles of spiced crumble provide a hint of crunch, reminding some of that first bite of delicious cheesecake. Devotees report that this delicious treat can leave you feeling relaxed and clear headed. (Coda – 100mg bar, 5mg per serving, 20 units)
Running a close second in the favorite post-cannabis snack category has got to be popcorn (probably because it takes slightly more effort than opening a jar). But the amazing cannabis-infused gourmet popcorn, Pop-Up Potcorn, comes ready to eat in snack size portions! They come in a variety of flavors and entourage effects. The Jalapeno Cheddar popcorn can leave you feeling euphoric and energetic. This is another great summer snack that travels well. They also offer great recipe hacks to turn your popcorn into a deluxe gourmet treat. (Pop-Up Potcorn – 100mgTHC:10mgCBD per bag, serving size equivalent to a small handful)
If you want to move further away from sweets or baked goods, you cannot go wrong with Stoned Age Beef Jerky. These cannabis-infused meat snacks are also rich in protein. Great tasting beef strips in BBQ Habanero and Mandarin Teriyaki provide accurate dosing and discreet consumption during your busy summer activities. See individual packaging or speak with a cannabis consultant to find the right blend for you. (Jerky – 100mg per pack, 10mg per serving, 10 units)
To celebrate summer in style, pour a glass of Rickett “Jolie Fleur” Champagne. This cannabis bubbly has been dubbed “the elegant alternative to alcohol.” Made with California’s finest grapes, the beverage uses traditional French methods to carbonate and nanotechnology to infuse with cannabis. Much like its familiar counterpart, the cannabis champagne bubbles help with a quick onset and a clean, fun experience. (Rickett – 375ml/10mg per bottle)
While edibles provide a consistent dosage of active ingredients, remember they are more potent than their non-cannabis equivalents. Many edible products come portioned in suggested single serving sizes. If unfamiliar with a product and its effects, consume only a fraction of a serving. You can increase the serving size in subsequent uses.
For the best experience, be sure to shop at a reputable dispensary with a diverse inventory and professionally trained cannabis consultants who can match you with product choices suitable for your needs.
Enjoy your summer and these products safely and responsibly!
