2021 has begun, and it has done so with a bang. Vaccines are ready, and the Coronavirus pandemic of 2020 is all but over.
The whole world is ready to finally close this difficult chapter, and move towards a better and brighter future.
The year brings hope with itself, and also the end to the quarantine season. Finally, we will be able to go out and about as we please, meet up with our friends and family, and live life as it was meant to be lived.
At the end of the day, 2021 is a year to enjoy and celebrate, and what better way to do so than with cannabis edibles!
You see, even though recreational cannabis usage has increased exponentially ever since legalization back in 2018, not everyone wants to knock back joint after joint to get a good and enjoyable high.
This is where edibles come in. An amazing alternative to smoking, cannabis infused edibles allow their users to experience amazing highs while taking it easy on the lungs.
In fact, edibles can even help regular users reach heights they haven’t experienced before.
Today, we will be talking about our top 3 edibles for 2021.
But before we get down to that, let’s focus on what edibles actually are, and how they actually work.
What are Cannabis edibles?
Cannabis edibles are just what they sound like – food and drinks which have been infused with cannabinoid compounds and contain the psychoactive and relaxing properties we all love so well.
The most commonly used cannabinoids to make edibles are Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and Cannabidiol (CBD), both of which are the main culprits behind most of cannabis’s effects.
Back in the day, the only cannabis edibles one could ever find, or make, were brownies and cookies.
Luckily, thanks to legalization, today we have more than a hundred different forms of edibles available in the market. One can simply go online and buy everything from cannabis infused gummy bears to THC infused beers.
But how, and why do edibles work? This is a relevant question which nearly all cannabis enthusiasts end up asking themselves.
How do edibles work?
Before we dive into this, it is important to note that the high that you get from edibles is quite different than what you get by smoking or vaping.
This is simply due to the fact that the rate at which cannabis metabolizes in our bodies depends on the way we consume it.
Put simply, we vape or smoke cannabis, the cannabinoids present in the strain are converted into the smoke or vapor which we inhale. This then gets infused smoothly into our bloodstream through our lungs.
This is a seamless process, which our bodies are already naturally doing more than 20000 times a day, and is probably why so many people consider smoking and vaping the best ways to consume cannabis.
On the other hand, ingesting an edible results in the cannabinoid compounds going through the gastrointestinal tract.
Which is why edibles hit different people at different times.
It all depends on how quickly your digestive system processes the cannabinoids and allows them to enter your bloodstream.
However, this also means that edibles last for much longer. No wonder edibles are so famous amongst medicinal lovers.
Excited? Of course you are. But before you decide to go on a spree buying cannabis infused gummies, chocolates, beverages and even triple-decker cakes, it is important to think about dosages.
Cannabis Edibles Dosages
Yup. Just like all other cannabis products, edibles also have dosages. In fact, with edibles you need to be even more careful, since the effects don’t show themselves right away. Which is why many users end up eating more than what is good for them.
At the same time, cannabis edibles are a great way of treating a large number of medical conditions, including PTSD, ADHD, chronic pain, fatigue, appetite loss, depression, anxiety, and even seizures.
Believe us, you do not want to end up over or under dosing.
If you are new to the world of edibles (or cannabis as well), you might do well to begin with a microdose: something which doesn’t contain more than 1.5 to 2.5mg of THC.
However, if you are a regular user, you might want to consider an average dose of 10mg. In fact, a majority of the edibles available in the market contain anywhere between 2.5 and 15mgs of THC content. Similarly, heavier doses of 30mg and above are also available for heavy hitters and medicinal users.
Now without further ado, let’s take a look at our top 3 new edibles of 2021 (so far).
3 New Edibles to Try in 2021

But what makes the Choco Chunk Cookies brand truly exceptional is the fact that while they have been baked without the use of traditional flours, they still manage to capture the customary aroma, taste, and shape of chocolate chip cookies.
As well as an amazing way to satisfy your sweet tooth, the Choco Chunk Cookies are also quite effective at treating stress, anxiety and insomnia.
