We are pretty picky about marijuana edibles here at Senior Stoner. For us to endorse it, it has to be effective AND taste good. Here are four perennial staff favorites, available in Southern California (and in some cases beyond), that never, ever let us down!
Fruit Slabs — What’s not to like about this medicated fruit leather? It’s made with organic fruits, and is both vegan and gluten free. It doesn’t get much simpler or more natural than this, the sum total of the ingredient list consists of organic fruit puree concentrate and THC extract. That’s it! Each package contains 100 mg THC. The taste is delicious, with just the barest hint of cannabis mixed in with the fruit. It’s a real pleasure to get a great tasting edible that isn’t loaded with sugar. Learn more at the Fruit Slabs website.
Topanga Minis Medicated Muffins — One of our new favorite edibles, each package comes with 8 bite-sized tasty mini-muffins that contain 35 mg THC each. Eat just the amount that is right for you and save the rest for later. We like to store ours in the freezer for longer shelf life. The small muffins thaw in minutes whenever you want an edible treat that’s not overly sweet, has nice fruit flavor, and barely any taste of marijuana. Shop for Topanga Minis at Weedmaps.
Punch Chocolate — It’s hard to believe this tiny piece of chocolate contains a whopping 225 mg THC, but once you try Punch Chocolate, you will believe it. Not that you should eat the whole thing at once, that is more than enough to put most people under the table. The bar is conveniently scored into 9 teeny tiny pieces, making it easy to break off just what you need. We love the creamy texture and the fact this product is consistent from bar to bar and from square to square within the bar (yes we have tried some edibles with different potencies in different sections, but this isn’t one of them). We are generally a big fan of high dose edibles like this one as we would far rather eat a tiny piece as opposed to a big sugar laden medicated dessert. As the entire Punch Chocolate bar measures about 2 1/2 inches square, and that can be easily broken into 9 portions, you don’t need to eat much to get a good dose of cannabis — just the way we like it. Visit the Punch edibles website for additional info.
Kiva Terra Bites Dark Chocolate Covered Coffee Beans — We discovered these delicious medicated pick me ups several years ago when Senior Stoner editor Cheri Sicard was an edibles judge for the High Times Cannabis Cup. Even though they came in second place overall, Terra Bites were Cheri’s #1 pick and they have been a favorite around our office ever since. Each individual espresso bean is covered in dark medicated chocolate, making it easy to titrate and eat an amount you need as each bean test at about 5 mg THC. This is our favorite daytime edible as the combo of cannabis and coffee seems to produce an energetic, creative buzz. Learn more at the Kiva website.
Senior Stoner Smart Shopping: From time to time we like to feature favorite products. These are NOT paid advertisements, but rather products our staff personally likes and thinks worthy of mention. Sometimes we bought the products, sometimes they were given to us, but inclusion is based on whether or not we like the product and think it is a good value. Of course we welcome any of the products we feature to advertise with us, but that is not/was not necessary in order to be featured.
