Quick. Simple. Discreet. Delicious. These are some reasons why cannabis edibles are becoming one of the most popular ways to consume marijuana.
One Seattle based-study, published in Marijuana Business Daily showed that:
“sales of edibles skyrocketed across the nation in 2020 as consumers shied away from inhalable forms of cannabis during the COVID-19 pandemic in favour of more discreet consumption methods.”
So why do people love edibles so much? People love edibles because they are fun to eat, and are generally a more potent way to consume cannabis. Even a small sweet edible candy can be packed with enough punch to get you high as a kite.
On the other hand, those looking for the therapeutic benefits of cannabis without the psychoactive effects can opt for CBD edibles instead. Either way, there is one particular edible that has won the attention of cannabis lovers everywhere, they’re sweet, easy to eat, and are known as edible gummies.
What are Edible Gummies?
Edible gummies are a gelatin-based type of cannabis that contain doses of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) or cannabidoil (CBD). THC Gummies can come in a variety of shapes, such as the classic gummy bear form. Cannabis companies are also offering edible gummies in an assortment of tangs flavours making them almost irresistible to consumers.
So why else have edible gummies risen to the top of the popularity charts? Aside from being delicious and convenient, below are a list of other reasons why edible gummies are changing the game when it comes to cannabis consumption methods.
Eating the Perfect Dose of Cannabinoids
Edibles in the form of gummies are perhaps the easiest way to control the amount of THC or CBD you want to consume. That’s because most edible gummies are medical-grade and accurately tested to deliver a precise dose of cannabis every single time. THC Edible gummies typically contain between 5 mg to 10 mg per single gummy, whereas a CBD edible gummy can contain anywhere from 5 mg to 25 mg.
Ranges vary, so it’s best to always check the packaging. Moreover, keep in mind that the overall therapeutic or psychoactive effects a cannabis edible will have on your mind depend completely on how your body metabolises particular cannabinoid compounds. With that in mind, once you have found the perfect dose for you, you can begin to shop for edible gummies within that dosage range.
One of the reasons people are going wild for gummies is simply because they know they can expect the same uniform dose from their sweet little cannabis snack every time. Therefore, predictability, as well as ease-of-use, seem to be the prevailing reasons why edible gummies are the hottest cannabis products on the Canadian market these days.
Cannabis Gummies are Easy To Store
Aside from easy dosing, edible gummies store very well. As opposed to other edibles such as chocolates or DIY (do-it-yourself) home-made cannabis cakes and pastries, gummies have an extremely high melting point. Other edibles such as chocolate can melt if not stored correctly therefore disrupting or spoiling the intricate balance of cannabinoids and terpenes. This in turn reduces their potency. On the other hand, gelatin or pectin based gummies are way less sensitive to temperature change. You can store gummies away in your cupboard, or your pocket for a hot minute, and they will be just as potent as before. While we wouldn’t suggest storing them without their packaging away in your sock drawer for weeks, cannabis gummies have certainly shown to withstand the test of time and temperature.
Gummies are Available in a Variety Of Shapes and Flavours
Edible gummies come in every shape, size, and color of the rainbow. Showcasing a range of flavours like sweet, tangy, sour, creamy, or even liquor based, edible gummies are tantalizing the taste buds of weed lovers everywhere. In fact, the tasty and colourful gummies are making a splash in the cannabis market, as CTV news reports that gummies are now a priority for cannabis producers given their rise in popularity among cannabis consumers. With flavours like strawberry yogurt, cherry cola, and sour suckers, there are clearly enough gummy savours to go around.
Gummy Edibles are Simply Fun and Irresistible
One of the most compelling characteristics of edible gummies may be the nostalgia of youth the little candies can create. Everyone has their nostalgic gummy favourite, and choosing a flavour can be like walking into a candy shop as an adult. It’s just as fun, but now these candies are packed with ingredients that can help adults have a little fun too. Ultimately, edible gummies are the ideal cannabis edible for anyone looking for a bit of playfulness and distraction.
