Anyone who has been into a dispensary in the last year or so can tell you that the variety of options available to the MMJ consumer is nearing ridiculous proportions. I often have people who say that they are overwhelmed by the sheer amount of choices available. With so many edible, concentrate, and topical creams being manufactured and sold, it’s understandable that the first time patient feels confused about what the best medicine for them can be.
Those looking for edibles have a particularly large selection to choose from; gone are the days when “pot brownies” were the only ways to eat cannabis. In the past few weeks alone, I’ve seen medicated Slim Jims, bottles of iced tea, cotton candy, and dinner rolls.
The last 2 things on that list are made by a Colorado based company, Bakked, whose products I highly recommend to anyone who wants to find an alternative medicating method beyond smoking.
In addition to cotton candy and dinner rolls, Bakked also makes delicious croissants, chex mix, “canna corn” (popcorn), and a large variety of different flavored brownies and Rice Krispy squares. They’ve also released a fudge party platter (with a total of 420mg across 4 different types of fudge), lollipops, and hard candy.
There are a few things to take into account when purchasing edibles. The first is dosage. For those with a low tolerance, something with 50mg or less is a good place to start. Those with a higher tolerance will want to go with something over 100mg. Over-medicating may not pose any serious health threats, but is definitely NOT pleasant. Bakked offers a nice variety for different kinds of smokers; from smaller suckers to the heavier dosage in brownies and fudge. An average bowl of normal bud is between 20-30mg. This means that a piece of food with 200mg is like smoking 10 bowls at once. So…..go easy.
The second thing to consider when evaluating edibles is taste. Particularly for stronger edibles, the taste of cannabis can often be prevalent and is definitely not the tastiest thing. This is an area that Bakked definitely does well in: their dinner roll tasted slightly like medicine, but it was amazingly subtle. Cannabis taste can often be covered but with sugar or frosting, so it’s particularly impressive when an edible company can make something like bread taste normal.
Overall, Bakked makes great products that definitely match up as some of the best edibles available today to MMJ patients.
