Collection: Edibles- Other
With the increasing popularity of marijuana edibles, many companies have started to expand their product lines to include more creative ways of infusing marijuana into food products. While edibles traditionally are found in the form of brownies, candies, and other sweets, other forms of edibles have begun to enter the market. Products such as mints, gum, granola bars, infused butters, and trail mix are marketed as fun, unique ways of medicating or recreationally using marijuana.
A popular form of edibles is condiments, which can include foods such as peanut butter, jelly, chocolate hazelnut spreads, honey, pizza sauce, and olive oil. These products can easily be combined with other ingredients in order to form an even greater variety of marijuana-infused foods. Many cookbooks have been created to provide tips and recipes for people who want to create their own edibles. The ability to infuse marijuana in almost any kind of foodstuff is a potential danger to unassuming individuals, especially children, who do not know that the product contains a drug. This could be especially harmful if the edible product is left outside of its packaging, like a pizza fresh from the oven. Yet, most edible products do contain packaging that in some way indicate that the product contains marijuana, albeit not all the packaging does so prominently.
The expanding diversity of edibles is a testament to the rise in prominence of marijuana edible use. At the same time, because these edibles look like ordinary foods from the outside, they can lead to unintentional consequences if left unattended in the presence of unsuspecting individuals.
