For too long, edibles had a bad reputation. In the years before states like Colorado and Washington made cannabis legal for recreational use, edibles were stuff you made yourself, in your own kitchen – cookies or brownies or other baked goods (pun very much intended). Most often, they were the stuff of bad comedy; we’ve all seen the movie or sitcom where someone’s uptight uncle accidentally downs a whole plate of weed brownies.
But the edible marketplace has come a long way, as anyone who’s ever searched for weed edibles for sale online can attest. First off, it’s no longer a DIY situation; if you want to ingest your weed, you don’t need to first make sure you have enough baking soda and cocoa powder. But more than that, there’s a wonderland of variety out there, in terms of strains, flavors, and types.
Here’s a quick rundown of the ten best weed edibles for sale online.
Watermelon is more or less a universally beloved flavor, redolent of summer vacations and holiday cookouts. The only way to improve on the refreshing and mouthwatering flavor of watermelon is to add the soothing effects of premium cannabis. Stronger than many other gummies on the market, these carry 10mg of THC per candy.
San Francisco might not be Ground Zero of the legal weed movement, but it’s definitely one of its major hubs. And it’s the home of Elefante weed edibles, which are vegan, non-GMO, corn-free, and sourced from sustainable ingredients.
Perfect for nighttime relaxation, the wild berry might be the jewel in the crown of Kiva’s Camino line of gummi weed edibles. Drop one or two of these gummies after a hard day’s work – each one is 5mg of THC – for a stress-free, smooth-jazz evening and solid night’s sleep.
Lagunitas Hi Fi Hops
OK, so technically this is more of a drinkable than an edible – but you’re gonna need something to wash down all the other stuff on this list. Lagunitas is one of California’s premier craft breweries, so you can trust them to make a quality beer. Here’s the kicker, though – Hi Fi Hops isn’t technically beer, but instead a sparkling zero-calorie beverage flavored like an IPA and infused with THC and CBD from California-grown cannabis. You won’t find this on tap in any bars, but many dispensaries have it available in bottles.
Similar to the Flav Watermelon Belts, these provide a mellower high and a less sour flavor. Chances are, you’re not about to eat a whole bag of weed edibles in one sitting, so minor differences in flavor might not matter. But in such a diverse marketplace, why not get what suits you?
Plus Blackberry Lemon Gummies
These little zesty cubes provide a mellow high that’ll leave you feeling cheerful and untroubled. They’re dosable at 5mg of THC per gummi, and discreet enough to carry in a purse or messenger bag. Honestly, the flavor isn’t fantastic – the terpenes in the weed clash a bit with the blackberry, and the lemon flavoring is hard to pick out – but all Plus gummies provide a solid, reliable high.
These are classics – for many, Breez Mints are the first foray into dosing THC or CBD. Appropriately housed in an Altoids-style tin, these peppermints don’t exactly pack a wallop; at just 5mg of THC per mint, they’re a good just-in-case edible to have on hand for boring or stressful situations.
Paleo Paw CBD Dog Treats
Who said edibles were just for humans? CBD is great for dogs, acting as a calming agent during thunderstorms, fireworks or travel. Talk to your veterinarian about dosage – you’ll want a recommendation for what to give your dog based on his or her weight. Plenty of dog parents swear by CBD treats, and sales spike just before Independence Day. It’s probably best to avoid letting your dog have THC – again, your vet will have the best info – but there’s no reason your furry kid shouldn’t have access to the same benefits of cannabinoids that you do.
Kiva Blenheim Apricot Gummies
These are similar to the Kiva Wild Berry Gummies mentioned above, but are more sativa-balanced for a more energetic and enthusiastic high. Keep the wild berry Camino gummies for nighttime and reserve these for wake-and-bake or an afternoon focus boost.
Potli Chili Oil
Most of us characterize edibles as relatively quick-and-simple ways to achieve a lasting high, which is why many of the most popular ones (and most of the ones on this list) are candies or cookies. But as the baking budtenders of yore can tell you, cannabis can be a versatile ingredient in the kitchen as well. Use in any recipe that calls for oil, whether a vegetable sauté or a salad dressing; this product can be used for cooking as well as finishing.
