Space Gems
Sweet Wildberry Mind Expanding Belt

10mg THC per serving, 100mg THC per package

Convenient for high-dose cannasseurs, this legacy candy is made with real blueberries, blackberries, and raspberries combined with organic, Humboldt-grown ice water hash for a delicious, full-body buzz. The 100mg belt can be enjoyed in one sitting or is scored into 10mg doses, which can be cut up and microdosed. The reusable, recyclable tins are great for storing bud or other goodies. Always vegan, solventless and cosmic, available in sweet and sour varieties.


Sonder
Space Crystals

10mg THC/package

We’ve all heard the phrase, “It’s like a party in my mouth” – but Sonder Space Crystals is like an entire EDM festival under your tongue. Not technically an edible, this sublingual treat combines tantalizing flavors and the snap and crackle of pressurized confections, displaying a lively dance behind your teeth. As a bonus, sublinguals, by nature, boast quicker uptake times. You won’t have to wait an hour and a half to feel the sparkle – these will start to sink in after 20-30 minutes.


Kiva
Lost Farm Live Resin Fruit Chews

10mg THC/serving, 100mg THC/package

We first encountered Kiva’s Lost Farm Live Resin Fruit Chews at Hall of Flowers, and were immediately enamored with the nostalgia of unwrapping a thin, chewy square from its wax paper. Coming in a variety of strain-specific live resin flavors such as Blue Dream Blueberry and Gelato Watermelon, these will be a hit for anyone who loved their classic uninfused analog – which we won’t name by brand because we don’t want anyone spoiling the fun.


Dollar Dose
Lozenges

5mg THC/package

There is no better way to add an extra dollar or two to your order at a dispensary than the Dollar Dose. These no-frills hard candies pack delicious, candy-bowl flavors and THC in micro doses into single-serve packs for only $1. Our favorite was root beer, but they also offer hibiscus, watermelon and apple, along with an expanded assortment of other products, including a CBD variety. 


Punch Edibles
Malt Balls

10mg THC/serving, 90mg THC/package

punchedibles.com | @punchedibles_us

If you’re an old school soul who loves malt balls and chocolate malteds, you absolutely must not sleep on Punch Edibles Malt Balls. This company capitalizes hard on vintage candy shoppe kitsch, and the world is better for it. Available in multiple flavors, including classic chocolate, strawberry white chocolate and cookies ‘n’ cream, these are simply fantastic candies – with or without the Cannabis infusion.
