Cannabis Corner: Delectable Edibles
Jun 05, 2019 11:50AM
There are many marijuana edibles on the market and more are being developed every day. Like food in general, people have preferences when it comes to candies, mints, brownies, soda, sparkling water, cookies and even ice cream, to name just a few, that are medicinal. Patients are curious about the taste of these delectables, and again, this will be a preference. Some people love tomatoes, while others do not. It’s the same thing when it comes to edible medicine.
A brownie from one manufacturer may taste just like grandma’s—making it hard to detect the cannabis ingredient. Another company’s brownie may have a strong and pungent taste of the plant, and some people like that. Taste does matter when it comes to medicating. Choose the one that’s best for the individual palate.
Some edibles are produced and then sprayed with the medicine. Other products are cooked and made by incorporating the medicine into the edible. For the beginner, this type of edible is the way to start. A strong taste of marijuana may deter a patient from trying it again, or from trying another type of plant medicine.
Tru-Infusion Kitchens produce their edibles by infusing the medicine into the product. The edibles come in THC-infused, CBD-infused or a hybrid containing both. Visit TruInfusion.com for a full list of products.
Tru-Infusion edibles can be purchased at Earth’s Healing Dispensary, conveniently located at 2075 E. Benson Hwy. and 78 W. River Rd., Tucson. Connect at EarthsHealing.org. See ad, page 35.
