These are a few of my favourite things! I’ve provided a list of edibles that really stood out for me this year. Of course this is my own opinion, if you have a product you absolutely love but you don’t see on this list, please add it to the comments below!
I wanted to add more of a variety of topicals and other cannabis products, unfortunately there aren’t many topicals available in B.C and with the strike we had at BC cannabis stores, it was a bit of a slow year for products.
However what we did have this year was minor cannabinoids and Delta 8 enter the Canadian market. CBN and CBG are both minor cannabinoids that can support our wellness in different ways. CBN is a very mild psychoactive cannabinoid that may help with sleep. CBG is similar to CBD in that it doesn’t get you high and helps to reduce the side effects of THC however CBG also helps with being more alert, it wakes up your brain.
I’ve included several options with these lesser known cannabinoids, any of these would make a great gift this holiday season.
The best edibles of 2022 – Candies and Chocolates
Edi’s Peppermint Chocolate Mini’s by Foray
Limited edition chocolates for 2022, I love Edi’s Peppermint chocolates by Foray, they’re only .5mg of THC per piece making them a nice low dose so you can leave a bowl out for guests to enjoy. (Away from kids of course). They’re a really tasty chocolate and I highly (pun intended) recommend you give them a try!
Foray Cinnamon Bun White Chocolate
Another winner by Foray is the Cinnamon Bun White Chocolate. This is a 1:1 with 10mg of THC and 10mg of CBD per square. Foray makes the best chocolates, you really can’t go wrong with their chocolate offerings. They also have other flavours if cinnamon bun isn’t your thing, all of them are good and don’t have any cannabis taste.
Canna Squarz Mini Donut Chocolates
Feeling nostalgic for the summer and those tasty mini donuts you get from the fair? Look no further than Canna Squarz Mini Donut Chocolates! These delicious chocolates taste just like a mini donut, each square has 10mg of THC. You can also get other flavours from Canna Squarz, these chocolates are a fun way to get a buzz.
Pearls Blue Razzleberry 3:1 CBG:THC
Pearls by Grön is an American cannabis company that’s made it’s way to Canada. The Blue Razzleberry 3:1 Pearls has 6mg of CBG and 2mg of THC per piece, each package has 5 in total. This gives you a nice dose of CBG to try. I love the way CBG makes me feel and these tasty little candy balls are a great way to give it a try.
Pearls Blackberry Lemonade 1:1:1 CBD:CBN:THC
I also love the Blackberry Lemonade 1:1:1 Pearls. This candy has 2mg of THC, 2mg of CBD and 2mg of CBN per candy, 5 pieces in total. If you’re looking to try CBN and see if it helps you sleep, this one has a little bit of all of the cannabinoids to help you get some rest. This one was also on Danielle Simone Brand’s top picks for getting minor cannaboinoids.
Monjour Bare CBN Bedtime Blueberry Lemon Gummies
Monjour Bare has a great candy to help you sleep. With 2.5mg of THC, 20mg of CBD and 7.5mg of CBN per gummy, 4 per package, you’re getting a nice big dose of the cannabinoids used to help with sleep. I found this gummy to be relaxing however I did find the flavour to be a bit bitter but not terrible. It’s worth it to get the the high dose of CBN and CBD to help you rest.
Terra Labs Rapid Lemon Elderflower Gems
Terra Labs rapid makes a great tasting fast-acting gummy. These will work within 15 minutes and wear off in about an hour. I love fast-acting gummies as they’re less of a commitment than a regular edible that can last for hours. Terra Labs Rapid also makes a Jalapeño flavour that I recommend.
Spinach Feelz Pineapple Starfruit CBG Chews
Spinach Feelz are all tasty chews, if you’re looking for that classic sweet and sour gummy taste, Spinach makes really flavourful candies. The Pineapple Starfruit flavour has 2.5mg per chew and 5mg of THC per chew, 2 per package. It’s a lower dosed CBG than other brands but I really liked the taste and feel of this gummy.
Wyld Pear 1:1 CBG Gummies
Wyld is another American brand that’s now on the Canadian market. Their edibles have all natural ingredients and are really tasty. I recommend any of them however I really like the Pear Fruit 1:1 with CBG. Each gummy has 5mg of CBG and 5mg of THC, 2 pieces per package. You get a nice balanced dose of both cannabinoids in an all natural chew. My husband thinks this tastes like baby food however I like the flavour of the pear. All of the Wyld gummies are also infused with terpenes, the pear flavour has Limonene, Linalool, Alpha Pinene, Beta Pinene.
The Best Edibles 2022 – Baked Goods
Olli Raspberry Cheesecake Cookies
Olli has cornered the market on cannabis baked goods, in my opinion. I love their products and the Raspberry Cheesecake cookies are so good! There’s no cannabis taste and each cookie has 5mg of THC and 5mg of CBD, 2 per package because they know we couldn’t eat just one! This yummy cookie is a nice change from gummies.
Olli Meyer Lemon Poppyseed Muffins
Another winner by Olli, the Meyer Lemon Poppyseed Cake are fantastic. They remind me of the lemon poppyseed muffins you get in coffee shops. They’re so delicious and moist, each package has 2 mini cakes with 5mg of CBD and 5mg of THC per cake.
The Best Edibles 2022- Beverages
Okanagan CBD creamer
Technically a powder/mixer however it goes in your tea, coffee or smoothie so I’m adding it to the beverage list. Okanagan CBD creamer is fantastic, it has 50mg of CBD per package and you get 10 per box. They mix well, add the perfect amount of cream to your coffee or tea and I love this product. I don’t normally recommend this type of product for CBD as it’s expensive but with such a high dose per package, it’s a great way to mix up your method for your daily CBD.
Impromptu Goji Grapefruit Kombucha
When I read the ingredients of this drink I thought it would be awful, especially because I’m not a fan of Kombucha to begin with, I don’t like the vinegar taste. However Impromptu makes a fantastic version with their Goji Grapefruit Kombucha. It doesn’t have a vinegary taste but it does have 20mg of CBD and only 2mg of THC per bottle. It’s smooth, light on THC and tastes really good!
(V)ia regal Pink Grape Sparkler
Cannabis brands are doing everything they can to get canna curious wine and beer drinkers to give cannabis a try. The (V)ia Regal Pink Grape Sparkler by Hill Street is just that kind of beverage. The use wine grapes for their sparkler giving you that familiar wine taste without the alcohol. Instead you get a fast-acting cannabis edible with 10mg of THC per can. It has a great taste and I recommend this one for those of you that love the wine grape taste.
Keef Cannabis Sodas
Keef is another popular American brand that’s made it’s way to Canada. What’s so great about Keef is they have all of your favourite flavours like Orange and Root Beer without the bitter cannabis taste so many beverages tend to have. They’re the best if you’re looking for that classic pop taste with a kick, each can has 10mg of THC.
The Best Edibles 2022 – Capsules and Oils
Dayday Full Spectrum CBD and CBG oil
I really love this oil by Dayday. It’s full spectrum with terpenes and you can really taste the linalool, it has a lavender taste, herbal and a bit like bergamot. This oil would be great mixed into and Earl Grey Latte or other latte that would be enhanced with the lavender taste. This oil has 20mg of CBD and 20mg of CBG per 1ml. It’s a great product to take in the morning to get a nice balance of CBD and CBG.
Frank CBD Capsules
This is the most CBD you’re going to get per capsule for the price. I was blown away by how inexpensive Frank CBD is with 50mg per capsule. I’ve seen it for around $25 per bottle, you get 30 capsules per bottle. This is the brand to buy if you need higher doses of CBD but are on a tight budget. They also make an oil that’s around $35 with 100mg of CBD per ml, also an incredible price!
Stigma grow RSO Capsules
Stigma Grow RSO Caps are rich in cannabinoids, terpenes and flavonoids as RSO is a concentrate used to get high amounts of the plant properties for therapeutic care. Anyone I recommended Stigma Grow’s RSO caps to had a good night’s sleep. If you’re having trouble with sleep, give this a try. Each capsule has 10mg of THC.
Dosecann is my favourite brand for CBD, they use Ahiflower seed oil as the carrier oil which is a vegan Omega 3. Each capsule has 50mg of CBD and because it doesn’t use MCT oil, it’s a good option for anyone who gets an upset stomach from using MCT oil.
Indiva 1:1 CBG Capsules
Indiva always makes capsules that are perfectly dosed for me, 7.5 mg of THC is my perfect dose and each of these capsules has 7.5 mg of THC and 7.5mg of CBG. I find them a bit more stimulating so if you’re looking for a good daytime option, I recommend these caps.
