For decades, if you wanted to enjoy marijuana in edible form your options were limited. The meagre existence of pot-infused grub consisted of overcooked brownies and cookies that tasted more like ganja than anything else.
Interestingly enough, long before the mistake of cannabis prohibition, edibles and drinkables were popular for thousands of years. Emperors in ancient China drank cannabis tea, Hindus drank a concoction of warm milk, marijuana, and ginger called Bhang, and nomadic tribes in Morocco ate hash jam.
Thankfully, with legalization becoming a reality in both North America and other parts of the world, edibles have been able to spread their wings and make a comeback complete with a giant menu of delicious options.
There are also many benefits to ingesting weed as food as opposed to other delivery methods. For one, you completely eliminate inhaling anything which is a positive if you want to give your lungs a rest.
Second, the high that comes along with cannabis cuisine can last significantly longer and can be more powerful in terms of its effects. This is mainly because weed in edible form is ingested through the liver, which provides a uniquely different experience.
So what are some of the incredible edibles that exist on the market today?
This popular form of cannabis candy is undoubtedly going to continue to dominate the way we enjoy pot.
Gummies are exactly what you think they are, a squishy, sugary, often fruit-flavoured treat, which can come in many shapes and sizes. They can be cute little characters like bears or even robots, round wagon wheels, ball-shaped candy that splits into wedges, blocks, and various other geometric phenomena.
Gummies can also pack quite a punch with a lot of marijuana infused into such a tiny space, so if your goal is to get really high for an extended period of time, this may be your go to product. However, if you like to go low and slow, which is recommended, make sure to check the package so you are aware of just how much to ingest.
It’s hard to believe that chocolate can get any better than it is already, but by adding marijuana it truly does.
Cannabis-infused chocolate comes in bar form, as delicious truffles, and even sometimes in fondue. When ingested, this favourite dessert for all humanity can offer a fantastic, smooth high, depending on the strain of pot that has been chosen. The results of this combination are so good, the world will start looking more like the inside of Willy Wonka’s factory if you eat enough of it.
If there was ever a reason to leap out of bed in the morning it would be for pot-infused cereal.
This adults-only treat will bring you back to the days of enjoying a bowl of the good stuff while watching Saturday morning cartoons. Afterwards when you’re high as a kite, enjoying a few episodes of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles might be all you’ll be able to do.
Many products exist in this realm of goodness including cereal bars made of fan favourites like Cap’n Crunch, Fruity Pebbles, and various others. If you’re hankering for a healthier option, a good ol’ bowl of granola can be what’s on the menu.
Nothing takes the sting out of a rough day than some tea sweetened with cannabis honey. This natural product is a healthy, delicious way to enjoy cannabis and is incredibly versatile as well. It can be used when cooking, added to drinks, spread on toast, or simply eaten on its own with a spoon.
5. Cannabis Oil
Cannabis oil in its endless forms is probably the most popular way to ingest our favourite little plant. Any type of oil that exists on its own can be infused with marijuana and the result is an ingredient that can be added when cooking all meals that call for an oil base.
This category is not the title of a porn movie, but rather any type of hard candy that needs to be licked or sucked for its effects.
The most popular forms of suckables are of course, lollipops, but various hard candies that come in flavours like lemon and root beer are also great for a discreet way to enjoy a good high on the go.
If you are always the odd one out when everyone is drinking wine, beer, or scotch at a party then have no fear because drinkable marijuana exists and it’s delicious.
Not only do beverages act as a discreet way to medicate, many of them come in drink mix form, so they do not get old or melt when you are waiting to enjoy them on hot summer day.
No matter how you choose to eat or drink your weed, this fabulous time that we live in allows for a long list of choices available to consumers.
Just like human beings who enjoyed their cannabis edibles thousands of years ago, we can have our pot and eat it too. The great news for us is, these delicious offerings are just a mouse click and mail order away.
