04 Apr Most Popular Weed Edibles
Not everyone wants to smoke weed. We understand that. But just because you don’t want to inhale doesn’t mean you have to miss out on the fun of consuming cannabis.
There are tons of ways to consume cannabis outside of smoking. You can dab, you can vape – or you can eat it.
That doesn’t sound delicious, but we’re not talking about eating a whole bud. You won’t enjoy it and you won’t get the benefits of cannabis. THC, CBD, and other cannabinoids can’t be consumed raw. So clever cannabis connoisseurs have learned how to carb cannabis and add it to baked goods and other edible treats. “Edibles” are a fun way to get high if you don’t want to smoke, want a more fun way to consume cannabis, or want to get more out of your bus. (Edibles are strong.)
Edibles come in many forms. Where do you start? We’ll offer the most popular choices of cannabis fans all over North America.
Feel free to try them out based on what sounds delicious or what appeals to your diet. Remember, consume responsibly!
Most Popular Edibles
When most people think of edibles, they think of the classic pot brownie. For a long time, they seemed like the only edible out there. Pot brownies are a rite of passage for cannabis lovers – but be careful, because a whole one might just send your head spinning.
Pot cookies are the cousin to the pot brownie. When most people make edibles, they start by infusing cannabis into oil or butter. As much as you want to then fry a burger or butter your toast, these ingredients are a lot more delicious in baked goods.
Cookies are a lot of fun to make and a lot of fun to shop for online. Peanut butter? Oatmeal raisin? Just don’t eat a whole dozen at once!
Gummies follow these top-dog baked goods because there are so many varieties of them. Before cannabis became legal and edibles were just made in someone’s house, weed gummies were limited to bears or maybe a big block of wiggly Jell-O. Now, however, you can pop gummies of all shapes and sizes. Gummy rings, worms, and fruity options are all on the market. They’re great if you don’t want something too sweet, or want something with a sour kick to it.
A lot of cannabis users who only want CBD in their edibles have found that cannabis gummies offer a wide variety that won’t make them feel high. CBD edibles are a fun and delicious alternative to capsules or topical products that most patients use to treat conditions like anxiety or insomnia.
Weed chocolates blends the best qualities of weed brownies and weed gummies: they’ve got a chocolate flavour, but come in small serving sizes and are easy to pop in your mouth.
Like weed gummies, weed chocolates also come in a wide variety of options. Sure, many dispensaries sell classic chocolate bars, but there’s more chocolate goodness out there. If you have a favourite chocolate bar, most likely you can find a knock-off version that has a bit of CBD or THC mixed in. (Dispensaries are pretty clever like that.)
Not all edibles come in the chewy variety. We wanted to add cannabis-infused beverages because they’re grabbing the attention of investors everywhere. The entire cannabis industry has promised great opportunities for businesses around North America, and some of the hottest brands have made cannabis-infused beverages a priority in the next coming years.
The main two types of cannabis beverages promising to take the market by storm are cannabis-infused coffee and weed beer. You can find these products around already, but they’re not as accessible as say, a pot brownie or a gummy. Keep your eye out as these products start to fill the shelves (and then fly off them.)
Need to sneak a little THC into your toast? Many cannabis lovers use different types of spreads to add a relaxing touch to their breakfast. These come in different flavours, including peanut butter and chocolate. If you are looking for a more savoury spread, you can find cannabis-infused honey or butter. “Cannabutter” is a great product to have in your fridge if you occasionally make your own edibles or want to fry up a nice grilled cheese. Just don’t confuse it for regular butter.
Where Can I Get Edibles?
Is your mouth watering? You don’t have to wait much longer to start snacking and chilling out. Buying edibles is easier than ever before!
Now that cannabis is legal in Canada, you don’t have to get a poorly wrapped brownie that your dealer made. If you want to try out some edibles, you can have them shipped right to your door! Unfortunately, you won’t be able to find your favourite treats in your local dispensary – yet. But you will still be able to find them and enjoy them in the privacy of your own home.
Want to make some edibles yourself?
For most recipes, you’ll need to grab some bud and make some weed oil or butter to act as the base of your recipe. It’s possible to make your own weed oil, but we’re not going to lie, it can be a bit of a pain. We’ve got cannabis olive oil online so you can skip a few steps.
The team at Speed Greens also has a few recipes on our website for pot brownies, gummies, and other edibles.
Be sure to read our guide to edibles for newbies; it will give you more information on edibles and how to consume them responsibly. Feel free to experiment and try a bunch of different edibles to see which ones you like, but don’t try them all at once. Again, edibles are stronger than you might think. A full cookie isn’t the equivalent of a full joint – it’s much stronger and will give you a completely different high. Take your time and enjoy your treats with caution.
