Incredibles
Berry 5:1 THC to CBN Lozenges

10mg THC and 2mg CBN/serving, 100mg THC and 20mg CBN/package

Mixing some CBN into my nightly regimen has helped immensely with a solid night’s sleep. These smell and taste like fresh blueberries, and I usually take between two or three gummies to reach my desired level of comfort and sleepiness.

Tangahhhrine 2:1 CBD to THC Lozenges

10mg THC and 20mg CBD/serving, 100mg THC and 200mg CBD/package

iloveincredibles.com | @incrediblesmmj

These chewy lozenges are a 2:1 ratio of CBD to THC, meaning there is twice as much CBD as THC in each piece. The sweet and citrusy flavor was accompanied by a smooth, level-headed high I have come to expect from CBD-rich products.


Incredibles
Strahhhberry 1:1 THC to CBD Lozenges

10mg THC and 10mg CBD/serving, 100mg THC and 100Mmg CBD/package

iloveincredibles.com | @incrediblesmmj

The flavor of these edibles reminded me of a strawberry milkshake with a little dash of Cannabis. I took these during the day, for a balanced feeling of euphoria and creativity. After two or three chews, I was in a wonderful mood and headspace.


Incredibles
Greener Apple THC Lozenges

10mg THC/serving, 100mg THC/package

iloveincredibles.com | @incrediblesmmj

Sometimes all I need is a little THC to get my mood right, and that’s when I reach for the greener apple lozenges. I had a little fun experimenting with using these in conjunction with different formulations, to up other product’s ratio on the THC side.


Do Drops
Assorted Flavors

2.5mg THC/serving, 100mg THC/package

dodropsedibles.com | @dodrops_edibles

We had the pleasure of trying Do Drops in lemon, sour blue raspberry, sour orange, watermelon, and green apple. Having grown up in the ‘90s, I was instantly attracted to the sour blue raspberry – a flavor reminding me of DumDums blue raspberry terps. At 2.5mg THC, these are great for micro-dosing, or testing your tolerance with edibles.

Gummies, Do Drops and Garcia Hand Picked
Do Drops Assorted Flavors

Garcia Hand Picked
Mixed Berry Jerrys

5mg THC/serving, 100mg THC/package

garciahandpicked.com | @garciahandpicked

The flavor of these gummies is absolutely outstanding, with little to no Cannabis taste being noticeable. I also love the psychedelic-inspired packaging produced by this brand. After eating three gummies, I felt a nice and relaxing buzz begin to settle in, which ended up lasting for hours.


Curio Wellness
Lemon Honey Medicated Chews

20mg CBD and 4mg THC/serving, 200mg CBD and 40mg THC/package

curiowellness.com | @curio_wellness

When looking for a clear-headed edible high with no tired feeling, Curio’s lemon honey chews are my go-to. I like to eat a couple of them, giving myself a larger dosage of CBD, while keeping my THC intake at a lower amount. Perfectly chewy, these are one of my favorite consistencies of edibles on the market.

Curio Wellness
Blueberry Lavender Medicated Chews

10mg CBN and 5mg THC/serving, 100mg CBD and 50mg THC/package

curiowellness.com | @curio_wellness 

Upon opening the tin of these chews, a smell similar to maple syrup hits your nose and excites the senses. With 10mg of CBN, I can feel confident in these chews’ ability to deliver me a solid night’s sleep without fail. During my time experimenting with these, I never had to take more than one or two chews to fall asleep soundly.


Curio Wellness
Black Cherry Vanilla Medicated Chews

40mg THC/serving, 400mg THC/package

curiowellness.com | @curio_wellness 

For days or nights when I am experiencing significant back and shoulder pain, I need something with a little more THC than usual. These chews are 40mg THC each, which puts the power in my hands to fight back against back pain. When taking two chews, I felt euphoria and mental calmness like none other, and my pain was greatly reduced.


Curio Wellness
Blood Orange Turmeric Medicated Chews

4mg CBD and 20mg THC/serving, 40mg CBD and 200mg THC/package

curiowellness.com | @curio_wellness 

I love seeing edibles blended with natural herbs and roots that have proven beneficial to human health. Mixing turmeric into this blend is a truly unique variety of edible in Maryland. With a 5:1 ratio of THC to CBD, you can load up on effects while also getting a solid dosage of CBD in the mix.


Encore Edibles
Mandarin 1:1 Gummies

10mg THC and 10mg CBD/serving

verano.holdings | @veranobrands

These gummies smell and taste like freshly squeezed orange juice, with a slight Cannabis note on the aftertaste. 1:1 gummies are always a good thing to have in your regimen, balancing out some of the THC with some mind-easing CBD.

Strawberry Sativa Gummies

10mg THC/serving

verano.holdings | @veranobrands

The shapes of these gummies are hexagons, giving them a cool geometric vibe that had me excited to dive into them. These tasted of fresh strawberries, accompanied by a light Cannabis flavor. I like to eat two at a time, finding 20mg of THC to be a sweet spot and functional high.


Encore Edibles
Watermelon Sativa Sour Gummies

10mg THC/serving

verano.holdings | @veranobrands

Who doesn’t love sour gummies? The hint of sour in this flavor took them over the top, making them my favorite out of the Encore Edibles line. The watermelon flavor was more natural than reminiscent of Sour Patch Kids. After two to three gummies, I was cruising through my day with comfort and a light load on my mind.


Evermore 
Radzberry Discos

5mg THC/serving, 100mg THC/package

evermorecompany.com | @evermorecompany

Evermore Discos are a longtime favorite of Maryland patients, with different flavors making their way to market. Discos are made with FECO instead of the usual distillate, which provides a wide range of benefits due to many more cannabinoids being included. It only takes one disco to get me in the right mental and physical space.

Select 
Pomegranate Fast Acting Bites

5mg THC/serving, 100mg THC/package

selectcannabis.com | @select.better

These sweet little sugar-coated beauties were deliciously fruity. With nanotechnology, the THC of these gummies is absorbed directly into the bloodstream, creating an effect similar to smoking or dabbing, versus the usual edible high. After two gummies and about 15 minutes, I began to feel a relaxing euphoria take hold.


Select 
Passion Fruit Bites

10mg THC/serving, 100mg THC/package

selectcannabis.com | @select.better 

Busting open this package immediately reminded me of the smell of opening a fresh pack of Gushers or a Fruit Roll-Up. The bright yellow color of these gummies is extremely visually appealing. The sweet and citrusy passion fruit flavor comes through in waves of deliciousness. After two gummies, I was in a sleepy state of mind … perfect for bedtime.


Wana 
Blood Orange Sour Chews

30mg THC Per Chew

wanabrands.com | @wanabrands

At 30mg of THC per chew, I knew that I only needed one of these to feel a noticeable difference in my pain level. I ate these during the day to combat back and neck pain, and never needed to eat more than a single chew. With the sativa blend used in these, I also felt confident they would not make me groggy in any way.
