No shade to the edibles of early legalization 2.0, but in the latter half of this year, innovation really got a chance to shine. Canadian brands are increasingly flexing their inventive spirits and breaking away from the standard chocolates and gummies. 

Whether it’s putting a spin on a classic dessert, creating delectable flavour combinations, or focusing on cannabinoids beyond THC and CBD—there’s a lot of new and innovative edibles available.

It doesn’t matter if you’re into sweets or want something savoury, you’ll be able to find the right product for your palate. Take a look below at some of the latest and greatest cannabis edibles to hit Canada’s legal market in 2021.

Dose: 10mg THC

The fact it took nearly three years of legalization before Canada’s cannabis industry saw a brownie is shocking. Once it arrived, it was worth the wait. Verse created a rich, sweet and delectable chocolatey treat that doesn’t feel like eating a sample-sized snack. Unlike many edibles on the legal market, the Double Chocolate Brownie is the size of an actual dessert instead of a tiny piece to push you towards non-infused foods. 

CBD Honey Sticks
