Photos: Seven recreational-strength marijuana edibles that still pack a helluva punch

Big photos below.
While actual marijuana buds probably weren't anything new to most non-medical cannabis consumers when the sale of recreational pot became legal on January 1, the huge variety of edible forms must have been an eye-opener for many longtime stoners accustomed to only the occasional batch of pot brownies. You can now find just about any confection under the Colorado sun loaded up with cannabis and for sale at your local pot shop.

But do they pack a punch?

Unlike medical marijuana edibles, which aren't limited in their potency, recreational cannabis edibles can contain no more than 100 milligrams of THC. That might sound like a bummer for those searching for new heights of stoned-dom, but 100 milligrams can be about 60 to 80 milligrams too many for those who only occasionally dabble in altered states of consciousness.

To help steer you to the right stuff, I test-drove some of the recreational-potency cannabis treats currently for sale in Colorado.

Number 7: Incredibles cannabis-infused chocolate bars (with pop rocks!) -- 100 mg THC

IncrediblesChocolateBar-1.jpg
Like a Hershey's bar, an Incredibles bar is easily divided into a dozen smaller chocolates. Each perforated chunk is about 8 milligrams, so I started with two and waited about thirty minutes for the wave of stoned warmth to start slowly kicking in. Creamy white chocolate is the first wave of flavor that hits your tongue, and each subsequent bite releases sugary, fruity blasts from the crunchy pop rocks inside. There's a brief earthy aftertaste and a light tingle in the throat from the hash oil, but the lingering flavor of chocolate eventually covers it up. Impatient after an hour, I munched half of the bar and spent the rest of my Saturday blissfully going through my '90s CD collection and rocking out to forgotten albums like Rubberneck and Shake Hands With Shorty. If I'd eaten the entire bar, I would have easily reached jam-band concert-level stoned.

Number 6: Mountain High Suckers CBD-enriched lozenges -- 84 mg THC, 16.8 mg CBD

We received a lot of questions from people wondering if high-CBD edibles and strains would be available at recreational dispensaries, so that people suffering from various ailments could try the medically beneficial cannabinoid without having to sign up for a red card. The answer is yes: Edibles like the Mountain High Suckers high-CBD lozenges are exactly what you should try. The small bites of sugar candy might look, smell and taste different than your average sucker, but the entire package contains about 16.8 mg of CBD in addition to the 84 milligrams of THC spread out across forty or so pieces. Each batch is potency-tested by CannLabs, and you can easily take down four or five of the little chunks to deal with headaches, arthritis and light muscle pain without getting too loopy. The lozenges are also extremely stealthy and can be consumed without raising suspicion.

Continue to keep counting down William Breathes's picks for recreational-strength marijuana edibles that still pack a helluva punch.

Those bears are no joke. I recommend taking that in 4 servings. No reason to eat the whole thing.

I missed it what does CBD mean,and are there any public companies in the edible cannibis market (stock tickers)?

The lip balm is also really effective for treating cold sores from everyone sharing dab rigs.

Here's a fun fact, the 100MG dosage limitation also applies to multi-use topicals, so our extra strength pain creme won't be available in the 8oz size, but you could just buy 4 2oz bottles if you hate the environment and love to waste. We should be fully licensed for rec by the end of the month.

If it's not Voodoo doughnuts, it's some legal weed thing. What ever happened to that hiker chick that stripped on mushrooms and needed rescue?

Billy Wasteword, showing his deep lack of any knowledge or journalistic ability at all, now coins a new term: "recreational-strength". WTF is that supposed to mean? More sensationalism, hype, misinformation and downright lies from Wasteword.


WHY oh WHY does WASTEWORD have to lie?

They are recreational strength but I am not aware of to many of these companies having a recreational license to produce yet. Edi Pure, Dixie, Mountain Medicine and a few others are able to produce for recreational edibles. 

I sure hope more of these companies and others get a rec license.

Lip balm isn't an edible.

The phony MMJ sodas that have been scamming customers for years are so weak and pathetic that they easily contain way less than 100mg THC ... if they have any at all.
