Cannabis edibles are becoming increasingly popular as marijuana use grows in popularity and legality across the United States. More states are allowing the medical and recreational use of cannabis, and as a result it and various supplements based on the drug are becoming increasingly popular and more widespread. This means ways to ingest cannabis are increasing in use as well, particularly edibles. Though edibles take longer to affect the body, they are often the most affordable way to do so. They also provide an easy ingestion method for those who would prefer not to smoke.
Colorado was an early state to legalize the use of cannabis, and it has grown into a popular and profitable business in the state. This includes the use of cannabis and CBD edibles. Knowing what’s best to purchase in such a successful market can be a daunting task, but with a bit of research the best Colorado edibles can be found.
Some people might still doubt the expertise of Colorado’s with edibles, TheSpot420.com explains that “Finding the perfect edible dose is important. Too little and you don’t feel much and too much and you may not be a very happy camper. Dosing for edibles has nothing to do with how long your smoking tolerance or how long you have been consuming cannabis in
smokable forms. It has to do with personal body chemistry and everyone is different. A comfortable dose can range from 2.5 MG – 600 MG depending on the person. So start with 5MG and wait 2.5 hours to feel the effects before you take more.”
From the same site, they consider one of the best cannabis edibles in Colorado to be Coda Truffles. According to them, “these edibles are delicious, perfectly dosed, and an absolute work of art. With that combination, it’s easy to see why they came in first place at the High Times Colorado Cannabis Cup. If you’re into aesthetically pleasing food, these will surely not disappoint. Each truffle is handmade by a classically trained Chocolatier, filled with chocolate ganache, coated with high-quality chocolate, and then decorated with tiny pieces of art with confectioner’s paint.”
It’s hard to argue with the combination of cannabis and chocolate. Some might consider such a combination too risky, however. for such people, there’s the old reliable classic, the gummy. Americcana gummies, according to TheSpot420.com, “These gummies are made with whole cannabis plant extract, farmed using organic methods and no pesticides ever. Each and every gummy is individually infused with 10 mg of THC and a focus on consistent dosing, so you always know what kind of high to expect when you buy Americanna. These gummies come in sweet and sour assorted flavors, with 10 gummies in each package. They don’t melt and are our #1 pick for portability. Plus they taste great!”
High praise indeed. One of the most highly praised Colorado edibles companies in the state is well known for their gummies. Wana Brands is, according to TripSavvy.com, “The gummies come in different flavors, such as mixed, watermelon, strawberry, blueberry, mango and yuzu. You can also get them in class-specific options (sativa and indica) as well as a variety of CBD and THC ratios, which allows for customers to control the level of psycho-activity they prefer.
Wana also makes fruit lozenges, known as Wana Drops, which are available in tangerine, kiwi strawberry and watermelon.” Gummies may be the quintessential edible, right up there with brownies, but the increased widespread use of cannabis across the nation, and especially in Colorado, has allowed for a wider range of edibles. For example, several dispensaries in Colorado are offering delightful summer treats like ice cream sandwiches. Made with real ice cream, these 50 mg snacks are full of flavor, summer fun, and plenty of cannabis to get the job done. Definitely an advancement over buying brownies from your college roommate.
Speaking of new and varies ways to enjoy cannabis, another summer treat available in Colorado is cannabis based tea. Whitewater Blissful Black Tea makes a lovely iced tea. This means you can enjoy a cool, refreshing drink with all the benefits of cannabis, too. Definitely a change of pace from more snack based edibles, this one is great for people who are concerned about
consuming high calorie edibles in order to achieve results. The only downside is the $24 price tag, which is still a pretty good deal for a Colorado edible that isn’t your standard snack-type treat.
For those who prefer coffee to tea, there’s Canyon Cultivation Infused Coffee. TheSpot420.com declares that “Coffee and cannabis is like peanut butter and jelly, they just go together. Cannabis provides a nice balance to the effects of caffeine, keeping the caffeine jitters at bay. Canyon Cultivation decided to make it even easier for cannabis consumers to enjoy this combination by developing the original infused cold coffee. Their coffee is made from locally roasted, Guatemalan beans and infused with 10 mg of THC. This dose allows for a perfect combination of energy and high to get your day started!” Some people prefer larger doses, of course. For those who fully embrace the high dosage, munchies side of Colorado edibles, there’s Love’s Oven. As TripSavyy.com explains, “
Love’s Oven is a Denver-based bakery run by a classically trained pastry chef, Hope Frahm, who worked with some of the best restaurateurs out there. Today, she makes high-end, high-quality, all-natural edibles with locally sourced and organic ingredients, whenever possible. Shawna
Seldon McGregor, a spokesperson for L’Eagle Services in Denver, recommends Love’s Oven’s Purple Hash OG or Super Sour Alien.”
You can tell they care because of the dedication the put into their strains, and their baked goods. Love’s Oven takes the old brownie motif and runt with it to create the sort of delectable desserts your grandmother used to make. If you’re grandmother was a hippy, it’s entirely possible she used cannabis, too. These treats go for flavor and cannabis, but the natural ingredients help ease the conscience and also allow for easier ingestion of the cannabis itself. The ingredients of the edible involved can be just as important as the cannabis itself, after all. Though some might think
nothing of the edible itself and merely seek the cannabis, there are others who consider the quality of the edible an important aspect of the experience. For such people, finding the best balance in cost, dosage, and ingredients is an important part of the edible experience. One company seeking to work on the craftier side of edibles is Stratos, who specialize in CBD edibles and THC edibles, rather than just standard cannabis edibles. As TheSpot420.com explains, “Stratos is a great change of pace from your typical edible offerings, crafting innovative products for both medical cannabis patients and recreational users.
Stratos CBD tablets come in 3 different ratios, 1:1 (with an equal amount of THC and CBD), 2:1 (with a slightly higher CBD to THC ratio), or 15:1 (with a much higher CBD ratio). Stratos THC tablets come in 3 different varieties as well: energy (sativa based), relax (sativa and indica hybrid), and sleep (indica based).”
For those who think of snowfall and relaxing under the winter sky, there are edibles for that time of year as well. For the quintessential winter Colorado edible, Medibles sells candy canes. That’s right, candy canes. 60 mg of winter holiday edible goodness, which might make this the best
winter/Christmas edible in the entire history of cannabis, or at the very least an excellent example of the adaptability of cannabis in more modern times.
Love’s Oven was mentioned before, but they deserve another mention for one of their winter treats. As WestWord.com explains, “All Love’s Oven goodies contain natural ingredients that are sourced locally and organic, when possible. For these ginger snaps, the company makes crystallized ginger in-house. The cookies come in packs of ten, and each cookie contains 10 mg of THC. Although these little loves are available all year, they’re irresistible during the holidays.” Thanks to increased acceptance of cannabis, more companies are able to expand the horizons of
edible usage. Not only are regular edibles growing in popularity, CBD edibles can be found almost anywhere as well. as one of the first states to legalize marijuana usage, the cannabis industry in Colorado has managed to prosper. Colorado edibles are innovative and trend setting creations that not only provide the benefits of cannabis, they also taste great and come in a variety of creations.
For the sweets oriented there are cookies, brownies, and delectable truffles. Coffee and tea can be infused with cannabis for a healthier beverage that provides a milder buzz. For those who favor a bit more from their edibles, high dosage options exist as well. There’s also seasonal flavor options to enjoy. Candy canes, ginger cookies, and all manner of winter treats can be
purchased in Colorado. The same is true for summer, with ice cream sandwiches just one of the more notable options. Regardless of the time of year, desired flavors, or dosages, Colorado edibles have what you are looking for.
