We’re going to assume that most people have come into contact with pot brownies at least once in their life. But the world of edibles is so much bigger than that.
As legislation has loosened up in recent years and stoner stigmas have all but diminished, more and more people are turning to marijuana as a natural alternative to treat conditions like anxiety, depression, and even period pain. And wellness brands have responded to consumer demand with new and improved edibles—think all-natural gumdrops, espresso chews, pineapple gummies and nutty bonbons.
Flurish Group is one such brand. They’re known for their gummies, which are made from the finest ingredients and high-quality cannabis. With flavors like mango, pineapple, watermelon and sour apple, these sweet treats are not only tasty but also high effective. According to users, they provide the muscle relaxing and pain relieving properties of cannabis without inducing a ‘high’ and the effects last way longer at a much lower dose than smoking.
Marigold Sweets Lord Jones and To Whom It May are three other well-known cannabis confectioner, who serve up organic and homemade delights. While healthy meal delivery service Sakara recently debuted CBD chocolates, which are made with hemp oil.
If you do want to try some edibles for yourself, just remember, marijuana is still illegal at the federal level, so products that contain actual cannabis can’t be shipped across state lines (even if they’re coming from weed-legal states).
