What are Edibles?
Edibles are intended to be consumed via eating or drinking and are made with either cannabis flower or cannabis concentrates. Cannabis infused edibles are absorbed through the digestive tract and provide a smoke-free alternative to cannabis. THC, CBD and other active ingredient in the edible cannabis product enter the bloodstream and travel to the liver where they are metabolized and released back into the bloodstream.
Who Are Edibles For?
In Ontario, only persons over the age of 19 can legally purchase and consume cannabis infused edible products. Edibles are a viable solution for the consumer seeking a smoke free alternative to cannabis consumption.
Why Use Edibles?
Unlike smoking or vaping cannabis, the effects of edibles can take much longer to be felt. Depending on the dose and potency levels, effects can feel more pronounced and may last longer than those effects that are experienced when smoking or vaping. It is recommended to start low and go slow – begin with a lower dosage edible and allow the effects to set in before deciding whether to consume more.
Our Product | What We Do
There is a wide array of cannabis infused chocolates available to Ontarians. From truffles to milk chocolate bars, there is no shortage of selection for consumers to browse. Available with varying levels of THC and CBD, some licensed producers offer milk chocolate, dark chocolate, and flavour such as salted caramel, raspberry, and orange infused chocolates.
After many years of being the stereotypical edible product – cannabis infused baked goods are now permitted in Ontario’s recreational cannabis market. The most common format of baked edible product is currently cookies.
Soft Chews & Confectionary
Debatably the most popular edible product, soft chews and confectionary are becoming a very popular way for Ontarians to consume their cannabis infused edible products. Licensed producers currently offer soft chews in various flavours from pineapple, to raspberry, peach mango and watermelon. Soft chews are available in different strengths – from 1:1 THC:CBD ratios to only THC or only CBD.

Frequently Asked Questions
1. Can I Taste The Cannabis In Edibles?
Most cannabis infused edibles available in the legal recreational market today are distillate based. Distillate is a form of cannabis extract that carries with it no flavour or odour and it is because of this that many licensed producers opt to use it as the cannabis product contained within their edible products.
2. I Have Allergies – How Do I Know What Is In My Edibles?
It is mandatory for licensed producers to indicate the possible presence of allergens, gluten, or sulphites on the product label for all edible products.
3. Are Edibles Produced In A Nut-Free Environment?
It depends on the licensed producer’s facility, however, all edible packaging must list potential allergens that are, or could be, present in the product which includes peanuts and tree nuts.
