The 2020 election saw five more states legalize recreational and/or medical cannabis. As the plant continues to grow in popularity — and states across the country continue to legalize its use — the number of interesting and beneficial products grows. Infused edibles are one of the markets within the cannabis industry that have exploded in recent years.
What Are Infused Edibles?
Edibles are foods and beverages that have been infused with cannabis. There are several different options, such as:
- Chocolate bars
- Gummies and hard candies
- Brownies, cookies, and other baked goods
- Sparkling water
- Coffees and teas
You’ll find edibles made with varying ratios of CBD and THC. These ratios make it easier for you to find something that you enjoy that also provides you with the results you want.
What Are the Benefits of Infused Edibles?
People take edibles to treat all kinds of ailments — including pain, anxiety, insomnia, and more. As cannabis products, edibles offer many of the same benefits other dispensary-stocked items do. However, some of the advantages are unique.
Edibles look just like any other food. You can eat an infused edible and take a cannabis dose anywhere, and everyone around you will just think that you’re enjoying a regular treat.
Easy and Accurate Dosing
Dispensary edibles undergo rigorous testing before they go on the shelves for sale. Their labels provide you with important information, such as the cannabinoid content of the product. Knowing how much THC or CBD is in every serving helps you determine how much you’ll need to eat to get the results you want.
Edibles take a while to kick in, but the effects last much longer than with other methods of cannabis use. They’ll stick around for several hours after you initially feel them. Since it takes around 90 minutes to feel anything from eating edibles, you should plan the timing of your dose if you’re taking it to sleep or before doing something that triggers your anxiety.
Better for Your Lungs
Smoking is still one of the most popular methods of cannabis consumption. But when you take a hit from a joint or pipe, you do more than inhale cannabinoids. You also breathe in smoke, carcinogens, and burnt plant bits. When you eat edibles, you don’t have to worry about inhaling anything that might not be good for you.
What Are the Best Edibles of 2020?
If you’re looking to try this method of cannabis use, consider trying products from some of 2020’s best makers of infused edibles:
- Moxie is a company that sells buds, vape cartridges, and live resin. It recently added THC gummies to its lineup of cannabis products.
- Oh Hi features a line of CBD- and THC-infused flavored sparkling waters — including grapefruit, lemon-lime, and ginger-basil limeade.
- Kiva isn’t new. But the company continues to wow with its array of gourmet chocolate bars, chocolate drops, mints, and gummies.
The variety of available edibles in dispensaries allows you to choose from a vast array of delicious products that also provide a whole host of incredible benefits. Whether you purchase pre-made edibles at your local dispensary or use your favorite strain to make tasty recipes at home, these products will help you get your cannabis dose easily and discreetly.
