Weed Gummies Guide
Edibles are not the newest craze in cannabis consumption, but even today, more than ten centuries since the earliest recorded use of edible marijuana, the hype around them remains.
In the early 50s, edible cannabis was, in a way, reintroduced to society through Alice B. Toklas’ cookbook which featured a recipe that listed “a bunch of cannabis sativa” as a key ingredient. The resulting snack is believed to be the earliest form of the pot brownie as we know it today.
But a fact that most stoners know but don’t really talk about is that edibles are more than pot brownies or space cookies—there’s an equally (if not more) famous type of edibles that are preferred by those who are more partial to the sour, sugary taste of candies rather than the sweetness that comes from pastries. Yes, we’re talking about weed gummies.
As has been a habit of ours here at ARCannabis, we like to share information about anything cannabis. Stick around for a full guide on weed gummies, plus the best ones in the market yet!
What are Weed Gummies and Why Are They So Popular?
Weed gummies are as literal as they come. They are chewable jellies infused with THC or CBD, or both.
Lots of marijuana fans go for these fun alternatives to smoking for several reasons: they’re easy to carry, quick to take, very discreet, and—honestly—who doesn’t like jelly?
Aside from these surface benefits, there are also a few more charms about cannabis gummies that have made them the most top-selling among all other marijuana edibles in the market. Let’s have a look at some of those characteristics:
- There normally isn’t a problem with over- or under-doses
When making your weed gummies, it’s quite easy to make uniform doses. Buying some from reputable brands doubles down on the guarantee of consistent doses so you’re sure to take the same amount of THC or CBD content each time—no more, no less.
- Cannabis Gummies are welcome almost everywhere
As an extension of weed gummies’ low-key nature, gummies are a lot more unobtrusive than smoking or vaping cannabis. This means that there’s no stopping you from popping a gummy right in the middle of a creative meeting (as long as it’s, of course, legal or allowed!).
- Safest bet for storing over long periods of time
Compared to other weed edibles, gummies have the longest shelf life and there’s less chances of them melting or going stale. If you’re planning to keep a stash that’ll last you a while, gummies are the way to go.
