Types of Cannabis Edibles – A Guide to Finding Your Favorite

Guide to the Different Types of Cannabis Edibles

Are you looking for a new way to enjoy marijuana and are wondering about the different types of cannabis edibles? As a popular dispensary in South Toms River, The Social Leaf Dispensary offers a wide range of cannabis edibles and can help you understand the benefits of each type. No matter how you prefer to consume your THC and CBD, we have a product for you.

What Are Cannabis Edibles?

Cannabis-infused edibles are a way of ingesting marijuana without smoking or vaping. Some people prefer consuming cannabis this way because it has several benefits over other forms of ingestion including:

  • Edibles offer a more discrete way of consuming the substance and don’t leave a smell on your clothes or in your hair.
  • Edibles give you more control over the dosage you take.
    Consuming edibles won’t damage your lungs like smoking or vaping does.
  • While it can take longer to feel an effect, edibles typically produce more intense and longer-lasting results.

The concentration of THC and CBD in edibles typically ranges from one milligram to five milligrams and in ratios as high as twenty to one.

Types of Edibles

You can buy several different varieties of cannabis edibles. From products you can sip to those you can munch, everyone can find a way to enjoy marijuana consumption that doesn’t require smoking.


Gummies remain one of the most popular types of cannabis edibles because they look and taste like candy. You can take them discretely and they don’t take up much room. You can find gummies in many different shapes, sizes, and flavors, and you can easily split them up into smaller dosages.

If you have children, store the gummies in a location where they can’t find them. Some kids mistake them for candy, and while no child has experienced a serious or long-lasting complication from consuming THC, it can feel frightening and does require costly medical treatment and supervision.

Baked Goods

When many people think of popular cannabis-infused foods, they imagine brownies. While a brownie was the original method of baking and consuming cannabis, the industry now has a wide array of options including donuts, muffins, cupcakes, cookies, and chocolate bars.

The major benefit of baked goods is that you can consume them according to your tastes and preferences. If you hate sweets but love salty or savory treats, you can forgo the brownie in favor of pretzels or chips. No matter your craving, you can find a baked edible that satisfies it.

Hard Candies

Mints and other types of THC edibles that qualify as hard candies offer the same benefits as other edibles but often greatly or completely mask the skunky taste of THC. You can suck on them over time for a long-lasting release, and they’re a great method of micro-dosing. Because you absorb them through the lining under your cheek or tongue, they often take effect faster than other edibles.


One of the newer and different forms of marijuana edibles includes infused beverages like cannabis tea, juice, soda, and even coffee. Drinks offer another discrete way to consume cannabis in a form that you enjoy. You can even find drink mixes so you can make your own beverage at home.

One thing you won’t find is edible drinks that include alcohol. Scientists haven’t studied how these two substances interact, so drink responsibly.

Infused Oils

If you want cannabis culinary options you can use to create your own edibles, invest in some marijuana-infused cooking and baking oils and products. These options range from taco seasoning to cooking oil and even butter. In general, you should only use these products if you have more experience with proper dosing.

Responsibly Consuming Edibles

Much like alcohol, safe consumption of marijuana requires mindful dosing and responsible usage. To prevent the effects of overdosing, use the following best practices for consumption:

  • If you’re new to using cannabis, start with a lower dose and slowly increase it.
  • Don’t mix marijuana with other substances like alcohol or nicotine.
  • Don’t consume more than 30mg a day. After this dosage, the beneficial effects significantly decrease and the detrimental ones increase.
  • Always find the highest-quality product with regulated and consistent doses.
