When it comes to edibles, thc gummy bears are some of the most popular products on the market. Their fun fruity flavors and small size make them easy to pop in your mouth or share with friends. Plus, they’re more discreet than a flower or vape, and the pre-measured gummies allow you to get just the right amount of THC every time.
THC gummies come in a wide variety of delicious flavor options, from cherry to passionfruit to sour apple. Many gummies are made using THC distillate, which is a highly refined form of THC that doesn’t have the grassy taste of full-spectrum oils and allows for the gummy’s natural flavor to shine through. Some manufacturers add terpenes back into the distillate to help guide your high toward a more chill, relaxing, or uplifting experience.

Edibles like gummies enter your bloodstream through the gastrointestinal tract, and their effects can take some time to kick in, depending on the type of edible, how much you consume, and your tolerance level. That’s why it’s best to start small and work your way up to a comfortable dose.
Lebel recommends starting with 1 to 3 mg of THC per gummy. “This is a good place to start for first-time users,” she says, adding that it gives you the opportunity to gauge how your body and mind responds to THC before deciding on how much to consume next time.
Remember to treat THC gummies like any medication and keep them out of the reach of children. They’re very tempting to kids, and if a child accidentally eats a THC-infused product, even one gummy, they could experience serious side effects like rapid heartbeat and dry mouth.
