If you’re someone who not only enjoys food but also loves cannabis, but you haven’t had an edible, you’re missing out on the opportunity of combining the best of both worlds. Or maybe you’re new to the scene and you would love a guide on how to get started and what’s out there.

Well, look no further!

At From The Earth, our cannabis dispensary shop features a huge variety of amazing, edible products, and here’s how we suggest you get started. Not all edibles are created the same, and just like they vary in flavors and categories, they also fall into one of two classifications: Indica and Sativa.

 

Know the Difference

When purchasing edibles, it’s important to know which strain you’re buying from, as they bring about two different types of highs. Sativa strains are usually infused into edibles that are supposed to be refreshing and energizing, giving you the perfect boost for outdoor activities or giving you a lift of inspiration needed to complete a task.

If you’re after a more sedating high, geared toward creating a calming, relaxing environment, you’ll want to purchase something from the Indica strain. Consuming edibles from this category will help you sleep better and help you unwind. 

 

Varying Effects

Consuming edibles create a completely different high than smoking and vaporizing. If you’re trying them for the first time, there are a few things to keep in mind.

First of all, smoking and vaporizing cannabis creates an almost instantaneous high. However, this is not the case with edibles. Due to the edible having to move through the digestive tract, any effects will take 30 minutes to two hours to start to kick in. While it takes longer to process, it also lasts longer and is a more potent high. Time and intensity will vary depending on the dose, when you ate your last meal, tolerance level, and body chemistry. 

If you’re new to edibles or have never used a particular product before, it is best to start with too little to avoid overconsumption. While you can’t overdose from cannabis, you can consume too much and make yourself uncomfortably high. 

 

1. Gummies

If you enjoyed fruity candies as a kid, then gummies are the perfect choice for you! There are many products out there that feature delicious flavors like wild berry, pineapple punch, and sour watermelon. Typically, gummies are infused with all of the cannabinoids, terpenes, flavonoids, and fatty acids found in hemp plants. 

One of our favorite Sativa products from Kiva Confections is their pineapple habanero gummy. Made with a touch of heat, this selection is great for a summer energy boost! 

For a relaxing Indica choice, grab a pack of Kanha’s strawberry gummies. This delicious treat is sure to leave you feeling calm and collected.

2. Chocolate 

Who doesn’t love chocolate or baked goods, like brownies? Virtually any food that contains butter, oil, milk, or even sugar or flour, can be turned into an edible. To satisfy your sweet tooth and to get the added benefit of a quality high, check out these next few products.

Grab a timeless classic in the form of a milk chocolate bar from Nug. Skip the ‘weedy’ flavor and enjoy the smooth, creamy caramel taste of this delicious bar. Broken up into squares to help aid with dosing, this treat is sure to be your next favorite.

Dark chocolate fans, don’t worry! There’s something for you, too. Papa & Barkley creates a delectable sea salt bar that is soy-free, vegan-friendly, and is designed with wellness in mind, aiding in relieving occasional pain and helping you feel relaxed. 

If you can’t make a trip to your local cannabis dispensary, no worries! Remember, we offer same-day delivery as well as curbside pickup

 

3. Mints

Get a taste of something refreshing by trying cannabis mints! Mints are usually very subtle, easy to carry, and can provide a relatively quick high. If you like to enjoy edibles low-key or without drawing a lot of attention, then you should definitely pick up a package of mints.  

Kiva offers several flavors of their Petra mints, including their spicy Saigon Cinnamon, juicy pineapple, or tart cherry. Whichever one you choose, we know you’re getting a great flavor that you can enjoy on the go while refreshing your breath. 

 

4. Tinctures

Tinctures are very versatile, as they can be ingested in a number of ways. Enjoy a tincture by adding a few drops sublingually, directly under the tongue. Or, brew your favorite tea and add a little to enhance your beverage. Either way you go, you’re bound to experience a quality high.

For those seeking a medium to high psychoactive reaction, we suggest checking out the 1:30 Releaf Tincture. This product is designed to help with acute pains, aches, sleep, and overall relaxation. Paired with a mug of chamomile tea, this will be sure to give you a quality night’s rest. 

 

5. Drinks

Other than teas, cannabis-infused drinks are certainly out there! It’s summertime, and we need something delicious and refreshing to beat the heat such as lemonades, juices, and yes, even hard seltzers. These are a great choice if you want something to quench your thirst and bring you a lasting high. We can’t always smoke wherever we are, but odds are good we can enjoy a beverage.

‘Krush’ dehydration with this mango drink from Headset. Roll up to the party with something fun to share, like these original lemon seltzers from Pabst Blue Ribbon. For a potent drink option, grab a bottle of Uncle Arnie’s iced tea lemonade – but drink wisely, as these effects will be felt within 15-30 minutes! 

 

Remember!

Getting high and experiencing cannabis isn’t just one-size-fits-all anymore. It’s okay if you’re not big into smoking or vaping, or if you’re simply looking to branch out. Stop by your local cannabis dispensary to see what they have in store or to ask questions and get more information on various products. After all, our friendly staff is here to help! Just make sure you kick off your summer safely when enjoying a new edible product, and you’re sure to have a high time. 

Celebrate Pride Month with These Products That Give Back!

Pride Flag waving in Downtown area

June is Pride Month and is celebrated annually in honor of the Stonewall riots, which worked to achieve equal justice and equal opportunity for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and questioning Americans. This uprising marked the beginning of a movement to outlaw discriminatory laws and practices against those in the LGBTQ+ community. 

Pride Month means a lot to us here at From The Earth and we want a way to give back to the LGBTQ+ community! So we have taken the time to compile a list of products that focus on not just proudly sporting the rainbow flag, but also, are donating a portion of their proceeds to amazing charities and organizations that render aid to the LGBTQ+ community. 

 

Pride Month

FTE – Rainbow Sticker

To kick off this list, look no further than our website! Purchase a product featuring a rainbow sticker from our cannabis dispensary and we will donate 5% of the proceeds to the Trevor Project, which is an amazing organization that helps LGBTQ+ youth. The Trevor Project leads the nation in providing crisis intervention and suicide prevention for young people under 25.    

 

CANN 

If you’re looking for a great option from our website, be sure to check out the Hi-Boy Cranberry Sage beverage. Bursting with flavor, it’s sweet, tart, and just a little bit savory. This refreshing drink would be a great go-to for any Pride celebration. It boasts 5.0 THC per can. 

 

PLUS Gummies

Not only are PLUS gummies delicious and pack 100mg of THC in each tin, they taste all the sweeter knowing that with your purchase, 10% proceeds also go directly to the San Francisco-based Transgender, Gender-variant, and Intersex Justice Project (TGIJP). Their featured Pride product includes their limited edition rainbow sherbert gummies. Cannabis-infused and sure to put you in the festive mood, be sure to grab a tin before they’re gone, as they are only available for a limited time!  

 

KIVA – Camino Gummies

Tropical Punch Camino is another great option if you’re on the prowl for a delicious gummy product that also focuses on giving back to the LGBTQ+ community. The lead developer spearheaded the project as a way to pay homage to her LGBTQ+ family as well as the vibrant and iconic drag queen community in San Francisco. 

Every element of the product was engineered to reflect being an ally of diversity, equality, and inclusion. From the color, to the flavor, to the shine of the gummy, even down to the locations portrayed on the packaging, Camino is there to celebrate all things Pride. Available for a limited time only, Kiva uses proceeds from these products to donate to three charities: GLBT Historical Society, Harvey Milk Center for the Arts, and the Los Angeles LGBT Center.

 

Kush Queen Bath Bombs

In an effort to celebrate the combined history and shared progress of the cannabis and LGBTQ+ community, Kush Queen has put together their 2021 Pride Edition CBD Bath Bomb. Without the incredible people who fought to overturn Proposition 215, our access to cannabis would be almost non-existent. Because of the community activism led by the LGBTQ+ community, California was able to adopt the first medical cannabis legislation in the US in 1996, which then opened the doors for AIDS patients and many others to have access to plant medicine. 

Our skin is our largest organ and is essential in absorbing cannabinoids and balancing your endocannabinoid system. Not only that, but it faces the elements every day, acting as a protective shield for the rest of our bodies. So treat it to something nice with their limited edition bath bomb! Glow in the dark and packed with CBD and essential oils, discover unparalleled relief while you kick back and relax. Proceeds from Kush Queen Pride Products will be used to positively impact the lives of the LGBTQ+ community. Check out your local cannabis dispensary to see what they have in stock! 

 

Recreate 

At Recreate, they are honored to give back to the LGBTQ+ community with each purchase. Their Proud Partners this year are two amazing organizations. One is Equality California which sets out to advance civil rights and social justice to institutions of power in California as well as across the United States. The other is One Colorado, which is the state’s leading advocacy organization dedicate to advancing equality for LGBTQ Coloradans and their families, lobbying the General Assembly, the executive branch, and local governments on important topics such as safe schools, transgender equality, relationship recognition, and LGBTQ+ health and human services. 

When you purchase one of these two great products from Recreate, one dollar from each purchase gets donated toward the aforementioned organizations. If you love a cannabis beverage, you need to check out their blueberry mint acai sparkling elixir. It’s a limited edition product but doesn’t make it limited in quality. With 2.5 mg of CBD and 2.5 mg of THC in each can, you’re sure to experience a refreshing beverage and an energized high, perfect for getting into the Pride spirit. 

Don’t forget to grab a package of mixed fruit gummies! These make the perfect addition to any Pride festivities, as they are invigorating and uplifting. Fast-acting and with 10mg of CBD and 10mg of THC in each pack, you’re definitely going to enjoy this delicious and easily portable treat. 

 

Rainbows Are So Much More

Sometimes, with Pride Month, marketing and branding can be a little deceptive. Who is really giving back to the community in need, and who is simply using the rainbow flag as a means to scoop up business from LGBTQ+ patrons? We hope this list has proven to be insightful and made you aware of some of the wonderful companies out there who are truly partnering to make a difference. 

This Pride Month, spark up, roll up, or drink up – we have a lot to celebrate! The work may not be done, but hopefully, with the proceeds given to all of these incredible organizations, we can continue to make headway into changing the lives of the LGBTQ+ community for the better.
