15 edibles that aren’t gummies you have to try
Cannabis edibles continue to be a popular choice for the curious consumer. Flocking customers are generally welcomed by walls of gummies on dispensary shelves, but that’s not all the industry has to offer.
There are cannabis brands throughout the country cooking up delicacies that go far beyond the gummy candy. From savory side dishes to ingredients like honey and ghee–this list of edibles pushes past the usual to a world of brave imagination.
It’s All About Choices (CA)
Garlic Mashed Potatoes
It’s All About Choices combines the worlds of cannabis edibles and ready-made foods in a line of novel, intriguing products. The Garlic Mashed Potatoes are specifically enticing, as there aren’t many savory dishes on the dispensary shelves. Add water to the packet and enjoy a serving of 10mg THC alongside garlicky mashed taters.
Not a garlic fan? Pick up one of the many other treats like Patzpatz exploding hard candies or onion soup.
Mojo Chocolates (MI)
Crispy Wafer Bites
Savory edibles are novel, but there’s no need to completely turn away from classic sweet treats. Lovers of the traditional Kit Kat will enjoy a bite of Mojo Chocolates Crispy Wafer Bites. Created by Choice Labs, the Michigan candy bar marries rich chocolate and a crispy crunch in a delightfully bite-sized treat.
TSUMo Snacks (CA)
Spaghetti and Meatballs Puff Balls
With partners like Chef Roy Choi and Snoop Dogg, TSUMo Snacks rarely misses. There are Zesty Ranch chips and Classic Cheese Crunchies, but this post honors the Spaghetti and Meatballs Puff Balls. Designed in a collab with food truck hero Chef Roy Choi, the crunchy puffs are flavored like the classic dinner dish in a bag containing 100mg of THC. Anyone who likes to snack on chips will enjoy munching on these. Just remember not to snack past the precise dosage.
Clarified butter, also known as ghee, is a preparation of butter that separates milk solids and butterfat commonly used in India, the Middle East, and Africa. The resulting flavor is rich, decadent, and distinct. Some describe it as nutty. Adding cannabis adds an herbaceous flavor, and the California brand Clarified does that. The family-owned company crafts 1000mg THC jars of cooking oil that can also be used to make once-trending Bulletproof Coffee.
Dutch Bliss (NM)
Sweet Cream Ice Cream
Down in the Land of Enchantment, cannabis lovers can take a bit of Dutch Bliss solventless ice cream. Available in flavors like chocolate and espresso and in doses of 10mg and 25 mg, Dutch Bliss has something for most people.
The brand doesn’t shy away from breaking the mold, either. Dutch Bliss also crafts infused boba kits, honey, and spiced apple cider.
Who needs cannabis tea when the honey is infused? Swifts crafts THC honey in flavors like cinnamon, strawberry, and lemon. The brand carries an unflavored option as well. Bake with it, add it to a drink, or eat a calculated spoonful–this edibles allows you to choose your own adventure.
Venn Brewing (MN)
Thanks to local breweries, the rapidly developing Minnesota market already has a bounty of beverages. In the movement of craft breweries releasing THC drinks, Venn Brewing introduced the ZENN Paloma. The tonic plays off the flavor of a traditional Paloma with notes of grapefruit, lime, and sea salt alongside a 5mg dose of THC. Check out this and more bevvies from breweries in the state in the Superior Molecular shop.
Cosmic View (CA)
These specialty lollipops bring California craft cannabis and tantalizing ingredients together. Cosmic View sources flower grown in the sun, valuing regenerative farming practices. The Moons Lolly is made with South Fork Mango, an indica cannabis strain from North Fork Farm. The floral notes play against toasted black sesame seeds, Makrut lime kaffir leaves, and flaky sea salt. The foodie in the crowd would be a fan of this or the more uplifting Sun Lolly.
Herbal Edibles & Extracts (NM)
Bons of Enchantment
In the Southwest, Herbal Edibles & Extracts is cooking up a full menu of edibles from scratch. This includes the Bons of Enchantment, gourmet French bites that come in fascinating flavors. Grab a pack of 10 mg bon bons in Green Chili Caramel with Pistachio Praline, Lavender Honey Pinion, Red Raspberry Chili, and Bischochito. Each one is filled with decadent chocolate ganache.
Double Delicious (WA)
Those who want higher doses of edibles often have to grab multiple 100mg packs, but one Washington loophole solves this problem. Double Delicious sells Infusions as a topical product, which can legally contain 1000mg. Coconut oil is also famously edible, so many buy a package of three vials to use in recipes or eat plain like a tincture. However, it is essential to precisely measure the dose to avoid an uncomfortable outcome with an edible this potent.
There are many people who love cannabis and caffeine. Kikoko Positivi Tea brings this duo to life in a mint green tea infused with 10mg of THC and 5mg of CBD. The product is meant to lift the mood and enhance joy with peppermint, spearmint, licorice root, lemon myrtle, lemongrass, and Kikogold cannabis.
Kiva (CA, AZ, NV, IL, OH, MI, HI, MA, and OK)
Kiva Chocolate started in the California medical market with flavored chocolate bars. The brand has since expanded into tons of markets, and the product line has expanded. Kiva Terra Bites are shareable chocolate morsels made with cold-water hash and sustainably sourced cacao. Though the product has been around since 2014, it deserves a spot on the list.
Emerald Sky (CA)
Peanut Butter Cups
Nostalgic candies are often a hit with cannabis lovers, and peanut butter cups fall into that category. Emerald Sky edibles are available in 400 dispensaries in California, offering vegan gummies, hard candy, and rich milk chocolate peanut butter cups. Grab them in five or 10mg doses.
Cannabis drinks are a growing industry sector, with canned seltzers and bottled juices becoming one popular choice at social gatherings. Fairwinds Ready-To-Mix comes in Pina Colada, Margarita, and classic drink flavors. The 10 mg packets can be easily tucked in your pocket or purse for a later date. Parents of children and pets shouldn’t leave these lying around, of course, but these packets are great on the go.
Seasonal Honeycrisp Cider is made by Ayrloom, a cannabis brand run on a fifth-generation apple orchard. The Honeycrisp fresh apple cider includes five milligrams of CBD and five milligrams of THC in a blend meant to be enjoyed socially.
These edibles push the boundaries of the sector, adding exciting new flavors to a sea of gummies. Whether you’re looking to try something new or have an adventurous palate, this list has something for you.
