2020 was a boom year for cannabis. With pandemic lockdowns limiting people’s mobility, many turned to cannabis as a way to relax and pass the time. New users in particular often headed straight for the edibles shelf.
Edibles’ growing popularity and modern consumers’ needs has encouraged brands to up their game and develop all sorts of new and exciting products. A quick look over dispensary shelves reveals edibles innovation that is a far cry from the stereotypical pot brownie of the past.
The Trouble With Traditional Edibles
While there are many reasons to love edibles, traditional ones do have some drawbacks.
For starters, dosing a batch of edibles can be imprecise, especially if they are homemade. When you combine that with the possibility of taking multiple hours to kick in and most options being tasty, sugar-laden baked goods, it becomes easy to overindulge and have a bad experience.
A New Wave of Edibles
Today’s legal edibles market is loaded with a variety of fun and innovative products that we could only dream of years ago. New edible and even drinkable cannabis products are changing the way that we enjoy cannabis and breaking down barriers to consumption.
Gone are the days when edible cannabis meant a funky-tasting cookie or brownie. Many new edibles feature exciting flavors that have been carefully selected and designed to cover or complement cannabis’s signature taste. Some forms, like softgel capsules, are even tasteless and calorie free. Drinkable cannabis is quickly becoming a fan favorite, especially among people looking to cut back on alcohol.
Fortunately, many new edibles have solved slow onset time since many of us do not want to wait patiently for effects to kick in. Thanks to new fast-acting technology, you can sometimes experience onset within minutes instead of hours. Be sure to check the activation time on the label when you buy edibles at your dispensary or ask a budtender what products are known for working quickly.
New edibles are also precisely dosed and are often available in smaller quantities for new cannabis consumers with lower tolerances. This means you are far less likely to take too much at once and makes it easier to microdose tiny amounts of cannabis (generally 2.5mg or less) if you want to take the edge off while still remaining functional.
Here are a few newer edibles to look for at your dispensary:
The ability to drink your cannabis has changed the game for cannabis edibles. Liquid cannabis products are super convenient and provide a refreshing and delicious alternative to traditional cannabis edibles. With various types of beverages and countless flavors to choose from, cannabis drinks have become the go-to dosing method for many cannabis consumers.

Got a sweet tooth? You’re not alone! That’s why infused candies have become some of the most popular edible cannabis products around. These sweet treats are a great alternative to baked edibles and are easy-to-carry and simple to use. Whether it’s mints, gummies, or caramels or our tasty UberChews there’s bound to be something you’ll love to munch on when it comes to infused candy.
One of the main advantages of cannabis candies is that they give you greater dose control than traditional edibles. With infused candies, and newer edibles in general, you’ll know exactly how much of each cannabinoid is in each candy. Oftentimes, individual pieces of candy contain just 5–15 mg of cannabinoids per unit, making them perfect for microdosing or for building up a more precise larger dose. And if you prefer your edibles to contain a ratio of different cannabinoids, smaller infused candies will let you know exactly how much THC and CBD is in each unit more precisely than other forms of edibles.
Capsules & Softgels
Watching your waistline? Don’t worry about it! You can still enjoy cannabis edibles even on a diet. Thanks to capsules and softgels, you can ditch the calories while still enjoying edibles cannabis. You won’t find any sugar or carbs in these edibles. Instead, capsules and softgels are packed with concentrated cannabis oils that are easy to digest and that work more quickly than many other edible products.
