The 3 Best Edibles to Try in 2021
All of the fantastic brands mentioned in this article (and more) will be at the Cannabis Edibles Expo in San Francisco and Chicago!
Do you remember the days of black market edibles? You either just bought oregano-infused brownies in the 7-11 parking lot or you’re going to be higher than a kite in the next hour and a half.
Pre-legalization, we all took the dealer’s word for it. There were no regulations, no dosing, and certainly no labs testing the half-baked Reggie brownies for potency. Your guy made edibles in his second-floor apartment with what he had: illegally grown weed and Betty Crocker cake mix. No telling the cannabinoid content, the cultivar, or anything else about it.
Thankfully, those days are gone, and legal, cannabis-infused edibles are growing more popular by the day. In fact, the cannabis product’s category grew 60% from 2019 to 2020 in the United States, according to cannabis data analytics company, Headset, as reported by MJ Biz Daily.
Before 2021 ends, we challenge you to try a new cannabis-infused edible! Edibles are a smoke-free, convenient way to consume cannabis.
Here are a few of our favourites at Cannabis Edibles Expo:

Yup, CBD is cannabis! While (most) of the CBD products on this list are derived from hemp, hemp and marijuana are cousins. The only difference between the two? The plant’s THC content.

How many edibles should I eat?
If you’re a first-time cannabis consumer, always go low and slow until you learn your dose. This is especially important when you’re eating edibles.
Edibles take a while to fully digest and take effect in your system, sometimes up to three hours. If you take too many edibles at one time, the THC will metabolize in your system at once and hit you out of nowhere. This can be a scary feeling for new consumers, and even more experienced ones, so just take it slow.
We recommend starting with one cracker, gummy, or whatever it is you’re eating. Wait 30 minutes, ideally an hour, before going for more.
