With the legalization of edibles on the horizon, the market is exploding! This influx of products gives the consumer many options for purchasing, but it also presents the unique challenge of sorting through many choices. With so many options, it can prove to be overwhelming for some, which poses the question – how do I choose the best edibles for me?
When searching for the right edible for your needs, several factors should be considered.
First, think about the type of experience you’re trying to accomplish. Are you looking to chill out, reduce stress, or relieve some pain throughout the day? Depending on your specific needs and purpose for consuming edibles, there are a few products that may work better than others.
For example, if you’re looking to relieve pain, but stay uplifted and active throughout the day, you might want to try an edible that’s high in CBD and low in THC. Products that contain high amounts of CBD can help relieve pain, anxiety and other negative effects that may hinder your lifestyle. Because they’re low in THC, you’ll be able to function and accomplish daily tasks.
There are many edibles companies that make strain or species-specific products nowadays, allowing for you to better understand the high that will result after consumption. Those seeking relaxation or sleep aid might have success trying an indica-dominant Raspberry Zzz – Jelly Bomb (80mg THC) by Twisted Extracts (View in National Compassion or Saskatchewan Compassion). If you’d like something with less sugar, there's Granola Mix (150mg THC per bag) by King Louis (View in National Compassion or Saskatchewan Compassion).
