You may have flowers and candy on the brain from Valentine’s Day (and now thanks to the shelves full of discounted chocolates) but your sweet cravings could be longing for more than just a sugary fix, especially with the excitement around legalization of edibles set to take place this fall here in Canada.
Of course, with legalization comes a whole other world of flowers and candy to get excited about, and you may even be curious about what might already be available in the United States (if you’re heading South), or what’s preparing to launch in the Canadian market.
Either way, here we’re sharing 7 cannabis-infused candy brands to know about right now and heighten your excitement:
Love great chocolate, and weed? Bhang Chocolates is a well-known producer of high-quality cannabis edibles that includes their delicious chocolates that have been developed by a master chocolatier with over 25 years of experience. Post legalization of edibles, Canadians will of course be able to enjoy Bhang Chocolates as it’s meant to be: infused with quality cannabis that’s produced right here in Ontario powered by Indiva. Until then? Don’t miss their ‘Cannabis Chocolate Tasting’ opportunity this weekend at 180 Smoke locations in Toronto for a chance to taste samples of Bhang chocolates (non medicated this time, sadly) and discover more about their product and brand.
*The Bhang Chocolates demo will be available at 180 Smoke’s 393 Queen Street W location from 12-6pm on February 15 & 16th; available at 180 Smoke’s 3391 Bloor Street W location from 11am to 2pm and 5pm to 6-pm on February 15 & 16th.
Mom Jeans Provisions
A scrumptious cookie that’s ‘dosed to perfection’? Now we’re talking. Not only do we love that you can choose a ‘high rise’ cookie infused with THC or a ‘relaxed fit’ with CBD, we’re mostly excited that Mom Jeans Provisions is from our own hometown of Toronto. Ready to get your hands on a pair? It’s best to DM for details.
Created by Founder Emily O’Brien after suffering a critical back injury that led her to find the world of edibles to alleviate her pain and symptoms. This CBD-infused hemp powder by MondoMeds can be added to both food and drink, and discreetly dissolves without taste so you can enjoy your nosh without a cannabis aftertaste. We love that this product allows you to get creative in your own kitchen with ease while enjoying its anxiety-relieving benefits without getting high (if that’s not what you’re looking for). Each jar contains 150 mg of CBD, along with a spoon to help properly measure each dose.
Another brand we’re hella excited about is BuudaBomb, which happens to be another up-and-coming name to know from Toronto. Not only do their cannabis-infused gummies offer a range of fruity flavours, but they’re made with organic ingredients in a chemical-free process. The BuudaBomb website currently has an online shop with all of their products so Canadians can order with ease, and at your own risk.
La Vida Verde
In search of edibles made with health-conscious ingredients? Look no further than La Vida Verde. An edibles brand that includes Organic Tinctures and Super Cookies, La Vida Verde takes edibles to a new level with their gluten-free and vegan products that don’t include refined sugars. Their Super Cookies are coconut cashew bites that are sure to satisfy cannabis cravings for newbies and novices alike while their Organic Tinctures are available in three varieties: Restore, Revive and Relax.
Remember the fruit rolls ups we all loved as kids? Rediscover that love with Fruit Slabs, a cannabis-infused organic and vegan fruit slabs. Available in 5 flavours: OG Mango. Mango Maui Wowie, Grandaddy Grape and Tropical Haze. Each package contains 100 mg of THC and uses only real real fruit ingredients with lab tested, potent cannabis.
