Edibles have evolved quite a bit over the years, especially Colorado edibles. Gone are the days of homemade brownies being your only option when it comes to edible pot and playing a guessing game with dosing. Now dispensaries are full of cannabis gummies, lollipops, sodas, mints, granola bars, and more, all perfectly dosed and lab tested for consistent results.
These edibles are delicious, perfectly dosed, and an absolute work of art. With that combination, it’s easy to see why they came in first place at the High Times Colorado Cannabis Cup. If you’re into aesthetically pleasing food, these will surely not disappoint. Each truffle is handmade by a classically trained Chocolatier, filled with chocolate ganache, coated with high-quality chocolate, and then decorated with tiny pieces of art with confectioner’s paint. These truffles come in sets of 6, with three tasty collections to choose from: Crescendo, Forte, and for a limited time, Serenade. Each collection has different flavors, all of which are luxurious and creative, including burnt caramel, earl gray, juniper lemon, hazelnut, passion, tiramisu, and peanut butter and jelly. Each truffle has 10 mg of CO2 cannabis oil. Our pick for the best edibles in Colorado.
Coffee and cannabis is like peanut butter and jelly, they just go together. Cannabis provides a nice balance to the effects of caffeine, keeping the caffeine jitters at bay. Canyon Cultivation decided to make it even easier for cannabis consumers to enjoy this combination by developing the original infused cold coffee. Their coffee is made from locally roasted, Guatemalan beans and infused with 10 mg of THC. This dose allows for a perfect combination of energy and high to get your day started!

Stratos CBD tablets come in 3 different ratios, 1:1 (with an equal amount of THC and CBD), 2:1 (with a slightly higher CBD to THC ratio), or 15:1 (with a much higher CBD ratio). Stratos THC tablets come in 3 different varieties as well: energy (sativa based), relax (sativa and indica hybrid), and sleep (indica based).
Dixie Synergy Mints are a great edible option for new cannabis consumers or those looking for a mellow and moderate high. Every mint has a 1:1 ratio of THC and CBD, 5 mg of each, providing a very mild high that is perfect for an introduction to edibles or a quick dose throughout your day.

What Makes The Best Edibles in Colorado?
They Tastes Good
Only a few people I know really enjoy the taste of cannabis and the rest of us would prefer our marijuana edibles to taste like all the other delicious ingredients they are made from. A good edible should be enjoyable to eat, not something you have to choke down with a chaser.
The Dosing is Consistent and Trustworthy
Finding the perfect edible dose is important. Too little and you don’t feel much and too much and you may not be a very happy camper. Dosing for edibles has nothing to do with how long your smoking tolerance or how long you have been consuming cannabis in smokable forms. It has to do with personal body chemistry and everyone is different. A comfortable dose can range from 2.5 MG – 600 MG depending on the person. So start with 5MG and wait 2.5 hours to feel the effects before you take more. Remember: You can always take more but you can’t take less and the high from edibles can be a little more psychotropic and last longer than the high your experience from smoking. Make sure it’s a fun one!
The Packaging is Convenient and Compliant
Easy to carry packing that is tactilely and visually appealing is a must. Also, you would never want your furry friends or anyone under the age of 21 to get into your edibles so childproof, well labeled, and compliant.
They are Beautiful and Intriguing
Partaking in cannabis should be a journey of the senses. Starting with visually appealing edible is fun for the senses and get’s the participant excited about their cannabis journey. Celebrating art in food!
They are Made with Quality Ingredients
Just like any other food or drinks you consume, quality ingredients make the taste and the effects of your edible cannabis better. So check the label. In addition, there are many gluten free, sugar-free, marijuana edibles on the market formulated with natural ingredients.
