There are a few good reasons you’re probably looking for the best edibles in Denver. For whichever reason that is, we don’t blame you. Edibles are tasty, they’re a healthier way of getting high, they don’t smell like weed (as potent as bud), and they’re efficient.
So, whether you’re only visiting Colorado for a small period of time, or you’re a local and just new to the edibles world, here are some of the best edibles and THC-infused beverages that Denver has to offer. Just remember to use marijuana edibles and beverages in moderation and follow recommended dosing instructions and guidelines, as they could take a while to kick in.
Honestly, you can’t go wrong with almost any edible, and everyone has their own preference on taste, consistency, etc. That being said, there’s a reason you’ll find certain edibles at almost any dispensary in Denver (or Colorado, in general).
Fast-acting gummies (4 varieties and flavors)
Quick tinctures (2 varieties, a 1:1 CBD/THC and a 10:1 CBD/THC)
Sour gummies (10 different varieties and flavors)
Tart candies (3 different varieties and flavors)
CBD-only gummies ( 12 different varieties and flavors)
What we love about these edibles is that they taste great, they have the traditional, sugar-sprinkled gummy, and they have a soft, tender consistency. You don’t have to bite down super hard and they’re almost always in stock, because of “high” demand (see what I did there?). You’re likely to find Wana almost everywhere.
Okay, Coda is really starting to catch fire with how awesome their edibles (and tinctures, for that matter) are. Depending on what type of activity you’re looking to do, there is a tasty treat for you. They feature a few different edibles, like:
Truffles (made with South American cacao)
Gummies (7 different varieties and exotic flavors, like, lychee/cucumber, mango/chile lime, etc.)
Chocolate bars (7 different varieties and exotic flavors, like caramel/corn, snap pea/spice, coffee/doughnuts, etc.)
These edibles are vegan-friendly, gluten-free, and naturally and ethically sourced. They’re probably one of the most “exotic” edibles when it comes to taste and flavor. You also have a wide variety of mg THC you can choose from, from 5 mg to 25 mg per package. My mouth is watering just thinking of these edibles.
Wyld (Canna) is an edible company that comes from the Pacific Northwest, and really does a good job of representing everything we love about that area of the nation, in its packaging and product. Great branding, made for the active stoner and lifestyle, all-natural, real fruit, perfect for sharing, vibrant colors, ok, we’re done. They have really tasty products, like:
Gummies (7 different varieties and flavors)
(White) Chocolates (3 different varieties and flavors)
They may seem like any other edible company/product, but what sets them apart is the feeling you get when you eat them. Duh, it’s a high one, but it’s super clean. It feels natural. It feels subtle. It feels right. It feels….WYLD. My personal favorites are the Elderberry THC: CBN ones that have dark, midnight blue packaging. It’s like if you were tucked into bed, read your favorite bedtime story, and kissed on the cheek by your mom or something. Oh, and they are soft and they taste amazing.
1906 is changing the game when it comes to edibles, in the sense that there’s something for everyone, every sort of mood, every sort of variety. It’s in the ingredients that pair with the CBD/THC. Let us explain.
Need help with that essay? There’s an edible for that. Like, specifically. Need help going to sleep? Yep, one for that, too, with the help of corydalis (an herbal ingredient, used in Chinese medicine). Here’s what you can expect to find:
Genius - A pill-like edible, with herbal ingredients, caffeine, and THC that help you write like 12 pages for that paper due tomorrow at midnight.
Midnight - A chocolate edible, for when you’ve turned in that paper and now you wanna go “night night.”
Go - A chocolate edible blend, perfect for getting shit done, out and about, etc. A bit different from “Genius” kinda like that coffee blend you go for when you’re in this mode.
Love - Little chocolate candies that are perfect for feeling those sensual, love-enhancing vibes (no, it’s not going to work like Viagra).
Chill - A dark chocolate blend of herbal ingredients, CBD, THC, for that time after work, after a long day, to calm yourself (L-theanine, magnolia, etc)
Bliss - Going to a social event but not feeling social? This helps promote being bubbly and extroverted. They’re chocolate peanut butter cups with theobromine in them. Blissful.
Happy Chews seriously are the closest thing I’ve ever gotten to a Starburst-like consistency and flavor. Almost identical, really, only with THC, so maybe actually better. There’s not a ton of variety in products, but they know what they’re doing and they do it right.
Taffy - Again, kinda like Starbursts (3 different flavors and varieties)
They’re so tasty, think of like a Laffy Taffy meets Starburst, but then you keep laughing ‘cuz you’re high now. Happy Chews. They come in 100 mg packages.
There are a few other edibles worth mentioning, like Ripple, Blue Kudu (now Curaleaf), Incredibles, and a few of these edible companies include beverages, too, to mix things up. Companies like Wana actually include “mocktails” you can make with tinctures and beverages they provide!
Marijuana beverages aren't as popular or as well-known as the pot brownie or good ol’ fashioned bong rip, but they're delicious, different, and definitely one of the most unique offerings you'll find at our Denver dispensaries.
Marijuana drinks also called cannabis beverages or THC-infused beverages, are cannabis-enhanced drinks that will get you high while quenching your thirst.
Like other varieties of edibles, marijuana beverages are a great choice for marijuana tourists, as they don't smell and you can discreetly enjoy them just about anywhere.
The variety of marijuana drinks is vast, so we've highlighted some of the best cannabis beverages that you'll definitely want to try when you travel to Denver, and don’t forget to check out the marijuana edibles deals on CannaSaver before you hit the dispensary.
There are many brands to choose from, and varieties range from sodas to teas to punches and even coffees.
One of our favorite brands is CannaPunch, a non-carbonated cannabis-infused beverage that comes in refreshingly fruity flavors like Watermelon Nectar and Juicy Grape.
The punch is made with organic ingredients and is 100% vegan, making it a good choice for the health-conscious Denver 420 traveler.
CannaPunch also makes a product called Mota Energy Citrus Blast, a citrus-flavored, cannabis-infused, caffeine-enriched energy shot that will give you a heavy buzz without weighing you down. There’s also a popular flavor, Black Cherry Fusion, which you can find in our list of edibles.
Many edibles make you drowsy, and these energy shots are a good alternative if you want to get a good high and also stay awake to enjoy it. You can pick up some CannaPunch at many Denver dispensaries.
Another marijuana beverage line to try is Dixie Elixirs. They offer fruity, fun, THC-infused marijuana beverages in flavors such as Watermelon Cream, Sparkling Pomegranate, Sparkling Blueberry, Peach Iced Tea, and their limited edition Wild Berry Lemonade. Each bottle contains a total of 90 mg THC, with a 5 mg recommended serving size. Dixie Elixirs are great for marijuana tourists and Denver travelers from out of state who aren't experienced with THC-infused beverages. Each bottle features a dosing cap so you can easily measure out the recommended amount without having to do any guesswork. In addition to their fruity soda line, Dixie Elixirs also makes a beverage, especially for coffee-lovers. If you're looking for coffee in Denver and some cannabis to go with it, check out Dixie's Mint Coffee Lift. In addition to THC, coffee, and a touch of mint flavor, Mint Coffee Lift also contains Quercetin, Resveratrol, and D-Ribose, three ingredients reputed to help improve cellular metabolism. MMJ America offers 35% off Dixie Elixirs and all other marijuana beverages every Thursday.
Colorado-based company Keef Cola makes a wide range of edibles, but it's their sodas that have made them famous among Colorado pot enthusiasts and Denver marijuana tourism travelers alike. Each soda contains 10 mg of THC, and the flavors are named for the cannabis strain with which they are made.
Bubba Kush Root Beer
Marijuana beverages are but one of many marijuana edibles products you can find at recreational dispensaries in Denver. There are also chocolates, gummies, pastries, granolas, snack mixes, cookies, candies, mints, and more—and we're just scratching the surface here. We'll cover some of those other edibles in future blog posts, but to really see what all is out there, you'll just have to travel to Denver, visit our dispensaries, and see for yourself.
You'll likely say what many marijuana tourism seekers say when they first step into a well-stocked recreational dispensary: “I feel like a kid in a candy store!”
When you see the countless sparkling jars of beautiful buds and the plethora of candies, marijuana beverages, and other incredible edibles, you'll know exactly what they mean.
