If you’re new to the cannabis experience, you may be asking, “What are cannabis edibles?”. By using cannabis-infused butters and oils, you can create a range of delicacies that make cannabis consumption even more tasty and interesting. But do you know the full variety of edible options out there on the market today?
For some, edibles are a safer, healthier alternative to other methods of cannabis consumption. For others who don’t like the sensation of smoking, different types of marijuana edibles open the door to a world of tasty new options.
The following are a few of our favorite types of marijuana edibles on the market today. While you’re checking out this list, keep in mind that you should always read the label on any edible or cannabis product you’re consuming.
Weed brownies have been the classic go to edible snack for generations. We’re big fans of the combination of gooey chocolate and cannabis.
When it comes to types of marijuana edibles, consider that when you smoke cannabis, you will experience the effects within a few seconds. With edibles, the process takes longer. In fact, the effect of edibles can take up to 30 minutes to take effect.
Of course, it’s best not to mix edibles with any other substances such as alcohol or even other cannabis products. This could affect the length of time they take to kick in, the duration of the experience, and your level of intoxication.
Cannabis cookies are another winning combination of sweets and THC that can make anyone’s day. There are plenty of flavors out there too to keep things interesting, like chocolate chip and peanut butter.
Keep in mind that the length of time it takes for an edible to take effect depends on a few things, including: the rate at which you eat the item, the amount of THC that the item is infused with, what cannabis edibles you are eating and your unique body chemistry.
With smaller types of marijuana edibles like cookies and truffles, these rates will probably be a little faster than something more substantial like a brownie or larger baked good.

When it comes to desserts, edibles have come a long way since the days of the lone tray of brownies at a party. Truffles are small and easily manageable for first time users. Many are quite tasty too.
Even with small types of marijuana edibles like truffles, it’s important to eat a meal first, then try an edible. That’s because edible cannabis products don’t affect your body in the same way that alcohol does. If you eat regular food after having a cannabis-infused treat in an effort to fill your stomach, it can actually push more THC into your bloodstream and have a more powerful immediate effect.
Cannabis edibles don’t have to include just foods.
These days more and more people are waking up to what liquid cannabis edibles like teas are bringing to the table. Flavored teas can be very soothing and lend themselves nicely to a pre-bedtime ritual. Choose an indica-dominant strain of cannabis and a soothing mint or lemon ginger flavor to enjoy a purely relaxing experience.
Lollipops & Gummy Bears
What are cannabis edibles good for if you can’t be discrete and carry them in your pocket? For those who don’t like the taste of chocolate, THC lollipops, gummy bears and other cannabis candies do all that and more.
Gummy bears are one of the more creative and fun types of marijuana edibles on the market today. With fruity flavors these are excellent, discrete snacks for cannabis users portion control on the go.
When it comes to smaller-dosed types of marijuana edibles like lollipops and gummy bears, keep in mind that doses may vary from product to product and item to item. Some gummy bears can be infused with a lot more THC than you would expect. As a rule of thumb, 10 milligrams of THC is a good amount for one serving size for the average user.
Oils and Butters
You can choose between various types of marijuana edibles, or you can craft your own. Cannabis oils and butters allow you to unleash your inner baker in the comfort of your own home.
As a cannabis cook, you need to keep track of the recommended dosages and cooking times to maximize the effect. If you’re never cooked with cannabis before, it’s best to start with a cannabis cookbook as you begin your journey in the kitchen. And make sure to drop us a line of you create something truly unique, we’d love to hear the recipe!
