Edibles are a popular method of intake for a number of reasons — they’re discreet, easy to dose, and fun to consume.
According to data from Headset, edibles continue to grow in popularity, accounting for 12% of the national market share in 2022. In Colorado, the first legal-ish cannabis market in the US, they’re even more popular, comprising close to 15% of sales in the state.
While edible cannabis used to be synonymous with the weed brownie, times are changing. Last year, brownies made up only 1% of national edibles sales, while gummies dominated the market, accounting for close to 75% of sales nationwide.
Another development we’ve seen is the shift from products made with distillate, a THC-only cannabis extract, to products made with high-quality, full-spectrum extracts like solventless hash (live rosin) and hydrocarbon extracts (live resin).
Having matured along with the market, consumers now look for weed treats that make them feel happy, healed, and relieved, not just earth-shatteringly high. So to snapshot this stage in the wildfire evolution of weed gummies and beyond, we looked at the best edibles in the state where it all started, Colorado.
