LET’S DIVE DEEPER
If you’ve ever wondered about trying recreational cannabis candy, but worried about how it would taste, or if it would be too much to handle, consider this your invitation to learn about the five newest candies on the market. We’ve gathered a variety here, sure to appeal to any taste and THC dosage needs.
Candy is easier to use than trying to smoke marijuana, and allows you to enjoy marijuana without developing a smoking habit and associated health risks. It’s also convenient, easy to carry around, and quick enough to enjoy without raising suspicion. Here are five types of edible cannabis candy you must try.
Fruit Slabs Are Just Like Fruit Leather
If you enjoy the taste of fruit leather (or it’s slightly less healthy cousin, fruit snacks), then Fruit Slabs are the treat you’re looking for. These leather-like fruit pieces contain THC, and plenty of fruity taste. Flavors come in Regular Mango, Mango Maui-Wowie, Granddaddy Grape, and Tropical Haze, to name a few.
Everything is handmade in California, providing quality taste and a great product rolled into one. Each fruit leather piece contains 50mg of THC. As a bonus, this treat is vegan friendly.
Remedy Plus Gummies Come in Shapes You’ll Remember
If you remember eating all kinds of gummy shapes when you were younger, you’ll love the adult taste and nostalgic feel that Remedy Plus offers. Rainbow belts and gummy worms, and cute gummy creatures are just a few of the candies offered that ae high in taste and offer varying amount of THC, based on how many you eat. For example, 15 Gummi Buddies offers 150mg of THC. If you need a higher dosage, take 30 for 300mg. If you enjoy variations, try moon rocks, a hard candy that is like what you’ll remember from years ago. This candy is only for sale in California, so enjoy while you visit.
Chill Pills Are Vegan-Friendly
Finding a candy that is an ideal combination of small, delicious, and safe for those that are vegan or on a gluten-free diet isn’t easy. The Growing Kitchen offers Chill Pills, small hard candies that come in classics like spearmint, and fun new flavors, such as honey lemon.
Both medical and recreational shops sell these, making it simple for anyone who partakes to find the right Chill Pill for them at their local cannabis dispensary. Edible marijuana candy normally uses some form of animal products, so the THC has something to hold on to. Chill Pills have the distinction of being totally vegan, along with no gluten used in the products. This makes an ideal candy for anyone who has either dietary restriction (or both).
This brand is available in Colorado, so if you don’t live in the area, make a point to try it the next time you stop out there.
Punch Combo Features a new Twist on Classic Peanut Butter and Chocolate
Peanut butter and chocolate is a favorite candy for all different taste buds. What if you could have it mixed with THC? Punch Combo offers a cannabis candy that you’ll enjoy sampling.
We recommend peanut butter and chocolate, but you can experiment with other flavors, such as caramel. Each box only contains four small bites. However, one piece of candy has 225mg of active cannabinoids. Keep this in mind when using, and exercise caution, since it’s a large dosage. If you’re looking for something to meet the needs of your sweet tooth and get the same effect from your favorite plant, try this edible marijuana candy.
Dixie Mints Offer a Fruity Fresh Taste
Dixie Mints look just like the mints you would purchase in any checkout lane. They even come in the same flavors, such as peppermint and orange. The Synergy brand offers mixed berry, for something different. Each piece provides either 5 or 10mg of THC. These candies are available for sale in different states that allow legal use, ranging from California and Colorado, to Oregon and Nevada. Medical patients find the flavors soothing and easy to digest, and recreational users like the ease of carrying and smooth taste.
If you’re looking for cannabis candy that is easy to carry and has a familiar flavor that you’ve had before, this list will help you make the best choice. Availability varies based on state, so check before setting your sights on a particular candy. No matter what your options, you’ll find one that is right for you.
