5 Unexpected Marijuana Edibles That Will Surprise And Delight

As edibles become more mainstream (and visually appealing), the options are becoming more numerous. So much so that many canna-infused foods are taking risks far beyond cookie and brownie batters.

(Ed. Note: here comes the obligatory warning)

To quote ourselves, here are some things to keep in mind when eating edibles, including the edible “high”:

All highs are not created equal. In short, most edible marijuana is metabolized by the liver, which then produces a kind of THC that has a bigger psychedelic punch than the THC that reaches your blood plasma when you smoke it. So when you finally feel the edible’s effects, it will likely be more powerful than what you’d get from a joint – plus the high will last much longer, up to 12 hours!

Did you work up an appetite just reading that? Here are five unexpectedly unusual edibles you’ll wish you had in your hand right now.

Fremont Freaks

These light, low dose, all-natural THC fruit snacks from Craft Elixirs in Seattle come in several forms, including: dried candied apples, pineapples, lemons, oranges, limes & grapefruit. Each piece is approximately 1 mg of THC, and, according to the company’s website, “because it’s an alcohol based infusion, the flavors sing, and the effects are felt within an hour.”


This water soluble edible is basically just powdered THC and CBD that’s tasteless and dissolvable in just about anything, from soup to cookies to water…to bacon jam. In fact, the company that makes it, Stillwater Brands, now offers infused instant coffee and teas with the same technology. Serving sizes range from 2.5 milligrams to 10 milligrams of CBD and THC.

Happy Apple Cider

Not a beer. Not a juice. This drink is somewhere in between and will definitely get you high.  Made with Washington apples, this 12-ounce bottle of carbonated pressed juice is finished with 10 mg of cannabis. If you ever want to swap that Prosecco for something a little stronger, this is it. And, omg it’s delicious.

Coda Signature Truffles

These aren’t edibles. They’re individual works of art. These stunning chocolates are created by Head Chocolatier Lauren Gockley, who studied at Valrhona before heading out to work at a string of Parisian pastry shops and more recently, Per Se. If that’s not a solid seal of approval, just look at these truffles! Each one tells a story through bright colors and bold flavors that, according to Coda, “harmonize seamlessly with impeccable craftsmanship and quality ingredients.”

Cotton Candy

Cannabis cotton candy is quite possibly the best and most fun way to get an adult sugar high. And this version from B-Edibles is made with organic cane sugar and C02 oil. Says owner Vanessa Corrales, “If you’ve ever had cotton candy you know that it melts and melts fast, which is why it acts as a sublingual when consuming this edible.Your body processes it in your mouth and not in your stomach so you can feel the THC effects in a matter of 20-30min.”

 The company more recently launched a line of sugar cubes (10 mg) that are easy (and discreet) to pop into your morning latte.
