In the past, if you wanted edibles in Orange County, you went to your cousin’s house and cooked marijuana in brownies when your aunt and uncle were out on Friday night and passed them out to your friends the next day at the mall. Thankfully, times have changed.

However, since it is the 21st century, edibles are out of hiding, and you can afford to be a bit more discerning about your edibles.

Here are some of our choices for the best edibles on the market, available at many California dispensaries.

Made by Baked Bros, the Sour Kush Kids Gummies won Best Product of the Year in 2014 for cannabis-infused products. The company prides itself on all-natural ingredients with none of the preservatives you don’t want. These gummies have been consistently ranked by consumers as one of the best candy products on the market. Since the creation of Sour Kush Kids, the company has introduced other THC candy products as well, including gummy bears, gummy worms, and gummy rings. The company also makes a THC infused syrup that is prized for its medicinal value to help control coughs. However, the Sour Kush Kids Gummies remain the company’s best selling product.
The company only makes one product, Kush Nuts, but they vary up the nuts and the flavors depending on the season, which keeps their menu fresh and interesting. Kush Nuts uses cashews and almonds, and season them with a variety of different seasonings such as garlic and rosemary. The nuts are available in either Indica or Sativa infusions, which means you could eat the nuts by day — or by night. With all natural flavors and different varieties offered all the time, the nuts are a great choice for snackers.
So there’s chocolate, there’s chocolate infused with marijuana, and then there’s Kiva. Although the brand is only eight years old, the owners of Kiva are serious about their chocolate. They employ master chocolatiers, which means they produce a quality product that can be infused with THC, CBD, or both. While their classic milk chocolate bar has been consistently rated the best of the best, their other products such as their mints, or their chocolate drops, which have lower infuses of cannabis.
The Kaneh Company is one of the leaders in marijuana edibles in the country, because they have focused on making a gourmet product which tastes superb, even without the infusion of THC. The company makes lots of different kinds of baked goods, but it’s been rumored the S’more is a little slice of heaven. The Kaneh Company also bakes brownies and blondies and a wide variety of cookies from lemon to sugar to peanut butter and red velvet.
If you are looking for something a little different at your Orange County edibles shop, you may want to see if they are stocking products from Cloud Confections. Cloud Confections does two things really well: chocolate-covered blueberries and chocolate-covered espresso beans. Each bite of berry or bean has 2 milligrams of THC, as opposed to the average 10 milligrams of THC per edible, which means you can choose to eat one or two — or more than one or two. Although the company has several different chocolate varieties, the fan favorite from Cloud Confections are the milk chocolate blueberries, hands down.
Whether you are in the market for some world-class chocolate, fruit, nuts, or baked goods, this list is sure to contain something you want to sink your teeth into.

In other words, edibles have the rare benefit of tasting good and being good for you.
