Are you a little distrustful of cannabis edibles? Did you have the “one time I ate a pot cookie and thought I was dying” experience, and now you steer clear of THC-infused treats? Sure, it can be an uncomfortable experience if you consume too much marijuana—but in this brave new age of lab-tested, low-dose marijuana edibles, there are all sorts of safely medicated munchies to try out. When consuming cannabis, always “go low and slow.” Start with 5-10 mg of THC and wait a full two hours to determine its effects on you. Here are some fantastic low-dose edibles available in states with legal recreational and medical cannabis.
This California company has a most winning design aesthetic—its gumdrops and artisanal chocolates come sumptuously packaged “For Your Royal Highness.” The gumdrops are hand-crafted using five simple ingredients: fruit essences, sugar, gelatin, citric acid and cannabis extract. The Chocolate-Covered Sea Salt Caramels are enrobed in Ecuadorian dark chocolate infused with cannabis extract. Reliable, delicious doses are available in 5mg, 10mg, or 20mg (for experienced individuals). Available in locations throughout California.
