Types of Edibles

There are plenty of savory snacks to choose from, like: 

  • Cookies

  • Brownies

  • Tinctures

  • Dissolvable packets

  • Gummies

  • Hard candies

  • Chocolates

  • Teas

  • Sodas, and more.

How Much THC Are In Edibles?

Colorado State Regulations mandate that (recreational) edibles come packaged in no larger than 100 milligrams of THC doses with identifiable portions. The most common measurement is 10 mg in a bite. Most products will be portioned out or have a clear dosing schedule on the label. 

The exception is for tinctures and syrups which can run up to 1000 milligrams of THC in a bottle. These infused liquids will also have a measuring syringe so you can achieve the precise dosing you desire. Most single-serve drinks such as soda pops or lemonades are dosed at 10 milligrams of THC in a bottle.

What does it all mean though? What is the best bang for your buck?

The Most Cost-Effective Type of Edibles

Tinctures and syrups are the most potent and cost-effective way to ingest THC.

By volume, strength, and price, syrup, or tincture will be the strongest type of edible you can get! These are liquids infused with THC and CBD and have the highest concentrations. The flavors are pretty good and usually resemble a sweet concoction to help this medicine go down smoothly. The activation times range from 10 minutes to 30 minutes and the doses are measured by syringe or capful. 

You can find up to 1000 mg containers from between $45 to $70 dollars. A 100 mg syrup can be found for as low as $15!

Drinks contain the least THC with about 10 mg in a bottle but are convenient and great for lighter social flights. 

Typical Prices for Other Edibles

For the pan-baked experience, there is a plethora of brownies, cookies, bars, chocolates, and stroopwafels which are doled out in 100 mg containers are the tastiest and most versatile option. These baked goods go from $6 for a bar of single-serving chocolate to an average price of $22 for a full 100 mg package of multiple cookies or chocolates. These offerings have a sufficient amount of THC in the whole package to remind you of your aunt’s space cake, but ultimately you can decide how many bites until your preferred high. 

This article starts off with the lightest infusions and saves the heaviest hitters for last.

Your taste buds will dance when a Cannabis-Infused Cola splashes over your tongue. There are many flavors to choose from such as classic, orange kush, root beer, blue razz, and purple passion. These drinks are at the higher end of the scale as far as milligrams per dollar but are great for first-timers and social buzzes. These drinks cost around $8-$10. Drinks are usually portioned at 10 mg of THC content, which is the lower end of the spectrum. You can also find bagged teas infused with cannabis. There are also strictly CBD drinks with no psychoactive effect. Those are a little cheaper. Thursdays are a good day to quench your thirst and coupons range from 10% to 25% off. You can score some coupons from cannasaver.com at these links.

Best Price on 100mg Edibles in Denver

Posted by CANNASaver on Friday, 03 February 2017 in Canna Blog

Best Deals on 100mg Edibles 

One of the best perks of having legal marijuana dispensaries in Denver is the amazing variety of marijuana edibles that are available and at all Starbuds locations you can get your choice of 100 mg edibles for $15 including tax on select brands.  Lucky for you, the Savvy Stoner knows you don't have time to do all that research, so I've put together this handy guide to the best 100mg edibles for the money, and how to get the best dispensary deals on edibles in Denver.

A Beginner's Guide to Marijuana Edibles 

Edibles come in many forms such as marijuana chocolates, gummies, mints, hard candy, drinks, and even frozen treats and pastries all made with marijuana extracts. You can find both THC edibles and CBD edibles at dispensaries in Denver. Edibles are labeled according to the amount of THC or CBD that's in the entire package. For example you will see 100mg edibles, which is typically intended to be divided into ten 10mg servings. If you're an edibles first timer, start with the 10mg serving and give it a couple hours to take effect before you gobble down any more. This is the danger of edibles --it's against human nature to eat only a small portion of a 100mg chocolate bar and then put it away for later, but that's exactly the kind of iron willpower that marijuana edibles require. The best defense is to divide the edibles and share with some friends so that there will be exactly enough to go around. Or, if you're into the whole iron willpower thing, look at it as a healthy test of restraint. Who knows? Maybe edibles could be a gateway drug to moderation!

Which 100 mg Edible is the Best?

So which of the 100 mg edibles are the best value for the money? There are many popular brands of edibles that deliver when it comes to consistency and quality. Here are some of the best 100mg edibles you can find at Denver dispensaries:

Marijuana Chocolates best 100 mg Edibles: Incredibles Edibles

Incredibles makes gummies, concentrates, and handcrafted cannabis infused chocolate bars. You can get these delectable marijuana chocolates in 100mg or 300mg. Among their 100mg offerings are the 100mg Boulder Bar which combines chocolate and toffee with THC, and the 100mg Mile High Mint. IncrEdibles products are lab tested so you can trust in a consistent dosage when you indulge in these tasty sweets. They have only a slight,mildly herbal flavor that blends well with the chocolate and other ingredients.

Best Marijuana Drink 100 mg Keef Cola:

If you're looking for the best marijuana infused drinks, it's hard to beat the THC drinks made by Keef Cola. They make a variety of 100mg THC drinks including a cherry flavored cola --the 100 mg Cherry Bomb, and their award-winning 100mg Bubba Kush root beer, which surprisingly tastes very much like ordinary root beer. If you’re a med card holder, you can pick up some discounted Keef Cola at CannaBotica right now for just 4 for $20 with the coupon on CannaSaver.

Healthiest Ways to Consume Marijuana

Posted by CANNASaver on Tuesday, 19 January 2021 in Canna Blog

While marijuana isn’t necessarily unhealthy, smoking it may not be the healthiest way to consume. That’s why we’ve put together the healthiest ways to consume marijuana.

healthiest ways to consume marijuana

Why Search for the Healthiest Ways to Consume Marijuana?

There are many reasons to consume healthy products and to prepare them in a healthy manner.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have stated that heart disease is the leading cause of American adult deaths. According to the American Heart Association, half the American population has some form of cardiac disease.

Many approaches to healthy eating including the DASH diet recommend eating a two-thousand-calorie-a-day diet that focuses on 

  • Fresh vegetables, fruits, and whole grains

  • Fat-free or low-fat dairy products

  • Fish, poultry, beans, nuts, and vegetable oils

  • Limiting saturated fats including full-fat dairy products, and tropical oils such as coconut, palm kernel, and palm oils

  • Limiting fatty meats

  • Eliminating sugar-sweetened beverages and sweet snack foods

The National Cancer Institute recommends eating foods raw or lightly cooked. They caution against fried and battered foods. The institute also urges people to eat foods high in antioxidants and free radicals.

Why Choose Marijuana?

A 2016 National Survey on Drug Use and Health learned that one in five adolescents under 25 years old used marijuana. VeryWellMind.com outlines reasons youth and adults choose marijuana. Some use it to relieve anxiety or mood disorders.

Research has also found other therapeutic uses of cannabis. These include:

  • Alleviating nausea and vomiting caused by chemotherapy.

  • The reduction of chronic pain symptoms.

  • Short-term use of cannabinoids appears to improve multiple sclerosis-related spasticities.

  • The use of cannabinoids is being examined as a treatment for such conditions as epilepsy and schizophrenia.

What are the Healthiest Ways to Consume Marijuana?

If you are worried about the effects of smoking or you don’t like the lingering taste or smell of marijuana, there are healthy alternatives.

vape healthy way to consume marijuana

Try Vaping

Vaping or vaporizing the flower isn’t the same as smoking. You’re actually heating the cannabis, not burning it. This significantly lowers smoking-related health hazards. Vaping allows the user to cook the bud at a chosen temperature. This allows various combinations of terpenes and cannabinoids without burning your throat or lungs.

Lower temperature settings release sweeter, lighter effects. Vaping also allows the combustion of oils and waxes from the plant.

Eat Edibles

Cannabis-infused foods are an increasingly popular way to ingest marijuana. If you are new to making edibles, try these dark chocolate hemp protein balls from the Minimalistbaker.com

If you are reluctant to create your own edibles, sample the increasing number of prepared varieties. Available in regular and gluten-free edibles from our trusted sources, you will discover an ever-widening selection of sugar-free, vegan, and kosher edibles.

If you want to skip the production stage, you can buy dried flower products

Whether you’re just getting started on baking edibles or you want to expand your methods of preparing munchies, sources like Sol Cannabis provide step-by-step directions

Create Cannabutter

You can get creative in the kitchen by creating cannabutter. You’ll find there are easy ways to make your own cannabutter. Emily Kyle offers this easy cannabutter recipe using your own dried product or with pre-dried cannabis.

Many cannabis chefs swear by this method of achieving a cannabis-rich infused butter as a base for baking. Using cannabutter to make edibles opens new product opportunities like those outlined in the recipes of MyEdiblesChef.com.

Experiment with Extracts and Oils

Oils and extracts preserve the medicinal goodness of marijuana. Those with allergies usually tolerate oils. These products are the fastest and easiest ways to enjoy the healthy benefits of marijuana. They are often consumed sublingually by placing the oil under the tongue. The substance then seeps into the bloodstream. Oils may also be injected.

Serve in Beverages

Cannabis oil may be added to the beverage of choice. Alcohol as a liquid is not recommended.

Try a cannabis smoothie. Place ice, fruit, and a little cannabis oil in your blender cup. Emulsify and enjoy.

A good way to enjoy cannabis oil in your coffee is to prepare a weekly supply of cream or milk. Add cannabis oil and puree. This works equally well with almond, hazelnut, or coconut milk. You can also stir in a dollop of cannabutter.

Create a relaxing cup of cannabis tea. Steep dry buds in boiling water just as you’d prepare tea using the leaves of your favorite brand. Using a tea strainer or a tea infuser ensures your brew will be leaf-free.

Blended non-alcoholic cocktails also accommodate cannabis oil for a tasty, healthy beverage.

Add cannabis oil to the juice of your choice by adding a drop or two to your juicer.

Experiment with Topicals

These weed-infused creams, balms, lotions, or salves provide pain relief for aching joints or muscles. They also help with skin conditions.

Chronic pain sufferers have experienced improved quality of life.

Topicals allow the cannabinoids to interact with targeted areas. The topical is absorbed by the skin. 

Topicals work best when the user directs them to a specific spot rather than as full-body consumption like edibles.

Topicals are the least invasive method of cannabis use. They don’t need to be inhaled, injected, eaten, or imbibed to feel their effects.

When selecting the most effective topical, Healthline.com suggests you pay attention to

  • The company’s reputation

  • The manufacturing process

  • The topical ingredients

  • What buyers say about the product

wax healthy way to consume marijuana

Explore Dabs using Wax, Shatter, etc.

Dabs, crumble, shatter, wax, and budder are all highly concentrated forms of cannabis. They differ in the way they are cooked.

Many users love the transparent sheen of shatter. Budder and crumble are both wax variations.

Dabbing involves using super-potent concentrated cannabis made from hash oil. Thus, there is little waste. First, a nail made of titanium or ceramic is heated. Then, shatter, crumble, or wax is placed on the heated nail. As it vaporizes, the user inhales it through a bong or a dab device. Dabbing is more like vaping because the user inhales the vapor, not smoke.

Consider marijuana smoking with a bowl, a joint, a blunt, a spliff, a bong, or a pipe.

Experienced smokers can control the degree of inhaling, the duration of smoking, and the effects they wish to achieve. 

A joint is a traditional way to consume marijuana. It involves rolling cannabis in thin rolling paper. Bigger than a joint, a blunt contains cannabis inside a cigar wrap. Made of tobacco, the wrap adds to the high.

Like a joint, a spliff is a mix of tobacco and cannabis. A bong is more efficient. Joints blunts and spliffs keep burning between hits. With a bong, smoking material burns only during the two or three hits you take. Bongs get you higher with the same amount of weed and do so with less smoke inhalation.

Bongs are harder to clean and less portable than pipes. But, bongs filter out the bad while retaining all the benefits of cannabis. Bongs burn cooler than pipes but you can experience water burns.
