The 11 Best Cannabis Edibles of 2018
Gone are the days when "edibles" exclusively meant stale brownies wrapped in cellophane that you bought in the parking lot before a String Cheese Incident show. In the year of our Lord 2018, in states where cannabis has been legalized (hopefully, yours), there are mass-produced snacks -- and even beverages -- that would make Betty Crocker and Willie Nelson proud. There are edibles that are so good, you'll want to eat a dozen [VERY IMPORTANT PRO TIP: DON'T DO THIS]. And now, the dosage and effects are regulated and clear, meaning if you are responsible, "freak outs" should easily avoidable.
Here are 11 brands that are making the best edible cannabis products in the business. Hopefully, one day, everyone in America will be able to go to a local dispensary, pick up some gummies, wash them down with some cannabis soda, and top it all off with a nice bar of chocolate and a stoney-bologna sandwich for good measure. Till then, you might just have to live vicariously through the Interweb. Or take a road trip.
Standout product: Their Sour Kush Kids remains one of the industry's standards... and the best thing that Baked Bros does.
Standout product: "Frooty Loops," for obvious reasons.
Lord JonesBe warned consumers: these decidedly fancy-sounding gummies don't actually contain THC, but it's non-intoxicating, potentially medicating (lamer) cousin, CBD. While the merits of CBD are debatable, Lord Jones posits that their edibles -- with oils sourced from high quality domestically grown plants -- have the potential to relieve pain, anxiety, and even migraines. Think of these more as medicine than fun-time snacks. But to their credit, they are still delicious. Even better than Flintstones Vitamins.
Standout product: Lord Jones All Natural Old Fashioned High CBD Gumdrops. It's a mouthful. In more ways than one.
Standout product: They really only make one thing (Kush Nuts). Luckily, it's veery good.
Standout product: The classic milk chocolate bar might be the best in the entire business.
Standout product: It's all good, but the s'mores brownie, in particular, is a slice of hedonism that knows no equals.
Standout product: Their gummies are indeed yummy, but their Bliss Blossom milk chocolate bites are a little tastier. Your call.
Standout products: Right now, the Savor line only contains the raw cacao, in THC and CBD varieties.
Standout products: The gourmet milk chocolate blueberries are one of the most distinctive-tasting edibles on the market. And we mean that in a good way.
Standout product: Peanut butter dark chocolate bar. Enough said.
Standout product: The blood orange-flavored Sparkling is refreshing and intoxicating. The THC addition is just an added (welcomed) plus.
