This Canadian city eats the most weed according to Uber Eats

The 2023 UberEats Cravings Report included one extra high ingredient this year: cannabis edibles. For the past five years, the transportation and logistics technology company has released the report in Canada.

Ordering habits in various cities are dissected, and interesting tidbits are released for people to ponder. This year, the report ranked the top ten provinces ordering infused foods in 2023.

Canadian cities that ordered the most edibles

Eight of the Canadian cities that ordered the most weed food are located in Ontario, with the remaining two coming from the western coast. The ratings are a bit skewed, as they only count the edibles ordered by people in British Columbia and Ontario, where Uber Eats cannabis delivery is available.

Here are the rankings for cities that order the most greens:

  1. Toronto
  2. Vancouver
  3. Victoria
  4. Kitchener-Waterloo
  5. Kingston
  6. Ottawa
  7. Peterborough
  8. Hamilton
  9. Niagara Region
  10. London, Ont.

The report also covered the most popular snacks ordered (hot dogs and taquitos filled the top two), and the most common side dish added to the ticket was french fries. Unsurprisingly, American food was the top cuisine on the menu, with Japanese and Indian ranking two and three.

American edibles continue to tantalize

Americans are also keen on edibles, introducing new flavors and products regularly. Recently, the U.S. market has seen inventive gummies and traditional pastry chefs joining the industry.

From Missouri to New Jersey, edibles have made local headlines as companies continue to innovate. St. Louis, Missouri brand CODES‘ new gummy Blueberry Gooey Cake is flavored with the city’s famous gooey butter cake dessert in mind. The sweet, creamy candy has a touch of blueberry flavor and a 1:1 CBD to THC ratio.

CODES Blueberry Gooey Cake is infused with Indica-dominant cannabis and is scored for easy sharing. Speaking of butter cake, the delicacy has been infused by other pastry chefs, including one that is days from launching its first edible product.

New cannabis edibles in New Jersey

This month in New Jersey, consumers can snag the first edible in the state released by an independent operator. ButACake is woman-owned by Matha Figaro, a first-generation Haitian-American from Jersey City.

Figaro is a classically trained pastry chef who opened ButACake in 2015 as a traditional bakery selling butter cakes and seasonal sauces. A customer asked her to bake her classic butter cake with cannabis for his mother battling through chemo, and the adventure took ButACake in a new direction.

After a long, expensive battle of licensing and bureaucracy, the first regulated ButACake product is set to hit shelves: a sublingual ginger peach dissolvable strip. They will run two 10mg strips for $15. The brand has applications for additional flavors, including chocolate mint awaiting approval.

“The launch of our ginger peach strips and the ability to bring our delicious infused baked goods into the Garden State is another chance for me to share my passion and to help make a difference for people looking for the best cannabis experience,” Figaro said in a press release obtained by GreenState. “This journey has been incredible so far, and the best is yet to come.”

The ButACake in-store debut will be held at Noiré Dispensary on December 14th at 3 p.m. EST before the product is available throughout the state.

The demand and innovation of cannabis edibles

With demand comes room to play, and that seems to be the case in the world of cannabis edibles. Canadian consumers are enjoying cannabis edibles delivery alongside their fries and burgers, the kind of technological innovation made possible by federal legalization.

Meanwhile, in the U.S., edibles manufacturers are in different stages, with some expanding into new flavors while others are finally getting out of the gate after a hefty licensing process. No matter where the state or country is at with legalization, it seems that consumers are hungry for more weed food.
