Knowing about the Most Popular Types of Cannabis Edibles

When it comes to cannabis edibles, there are a few different types that are the most popular. Understanding these different types can help you choose the right edibles for you.

Below are just a few of the main examples you can find at your local cannabis store.

First of All, What Are Edibles?

In the most basic sense, Edibles are cannabinoid-infused food items that can be consumed by mouth.

“Edibles can contain either THC, CBD, or both,” explains Bethanie White, director of marketing for Clovr Cannabis, a medical marijuana manufacturer. CBD does not provide intoxicating effects on its own, but it complements THC quite well. It’s what we like to term the “entourage effect.”

To describe the resulting synergy or cooperative effect, the term “entourage effect” was coined.

While there is a wide range of possible edibles, these five are by far the most popular.

Baked Goods

Although marijuana brownies are the most common edible form of cannabis, they can also be found in cookies, muffins, cupcakes, and any other baked treat. The best thing about baked goods is you can buy cannabis oil and infuse your homemade creations yourself!


There is also the option of consuming cannabis in the form of “drinkables,” or beverages made with cannabis, such as sodas, teas, coffees, and cocoas. Tinctures, which are liquid extracts, can be mixed with liquids or taken orally by placing a dropper full of the liquid beneath the tongue.

White boasts, “Root beer is one of the most popular beverage taste.” Some companies have even debuted a selection of high-octane beverages.


In addition to smoking or vaping cannabis, edibles like chocolate loaded with THC or CBD are a delicious and convenient option. If you know where to look, there is currently a line of high-end cannabis-infused chocolate bars and bonbons.


Gummy candies infused with cannabis come in a wide variety of shapes, colours, and fruity flavours, including sour options.

As White puts it, “their blueberry gummy is also one of the  most popular options for those who want to try it out.” (Wana is a brand for which White’s company is the licensed distributor.)

Hard Candy

Cannabidiol (CBD) candies, suckers, lollipops, and lozenges with a moderate THC concentration can be ingested and smoked simultaneously.

According to White, this means that the THC and CBD are absorbed orally, through the digestive tract, and finally by way of the liver. They often begin working within 20 minutes, while the effects of chewing and swallowing something like a gummy or chocolate can take 45 minutes to two hours to become noticeable. Depending on the substance and the dose, the effects can remain for anywhere from two to six hours.

Some Notable Facts About Cannabis Edibles

It’s essential for customers to know that the amount of cannabis in each product varies and that the effects of consuming cannabis in any form may not be the same for every person.

In general, the more potent something edible is, the less of it a single person should consume at once to achieve the same effect. White suggests taking it easy and starting with a little dose if you’ve never tried edibles before.

She suggests you “give it time to kick in,” meaning you should use a product with 5 milligrams or less. People who had negative reactions to edibles usually did so because they ingested too much too rapidly.


Cannabis edibles are a popular way to consume cannabis, especially among those who don’t want to smoke it. There are many different types of it, each with its own unique flavour and effects. The most popular types of cannabis edibles include brownies, cookies, candies, and gummies.
