From chocolates to gummies, sweet treats infused with CBD, hemp, or THC offer new ways to reap the health (and social) benefits of cannabis. 

Detroit Edible Co.

Made with Michigan-grown cannabis and crafted right here in metro Detroit, each product by Detroit, Edible Co. takes the “made in Michigan” concept to the next level. The line of cannabis extract-infused treats ranges from mint-flavored chocolate bars and Rocky Road Fudge to pantry staples such as honey and peanut butter. The latest addition, Guppy Gummies, the brand’s chewy, fruit-flavored candies, were designed to help consumers with sleep challenges unwind before bed. Detroit Edible Co.

Little Saints

Those looking to ease their way into the world of CBD should consider Little Saints. The female-owned company is committed to crafting canned mocktails with botanical ingredients — starting with nanoemulsified CBD. Each beverage is infused with terpenes for mood-boosting effects, reishi mushroom extract for improved cognitive function, and monk fruit as a natural sweetener. Each of the two flavors, the Paloma and the Ginger Mule, is a take on a classic cocktail — sans the alcohol.

Kaneh

Just last year, this California-based brand by acclaimed pastry chef Rachel King expanded its cannabis edibles into the Michigan market. Today, Kaneh offers indulgent munchies, such as the 24K Brownie, a decadent brownie laced with butter and 10 milligrams of THC from Michigan-grown cannabis per-serving, and coated with a dusting of gold powder. There are also health-conscious alternatives like the Superfood Granola Bite Duos. The plant-based, gluten-free granola rounds are made with whole ingredients, such as dates, coconut flakes, and goji berries.

Happi

With Dry January just around the corner, you may be on the hunt for nonalcoholic beverages that are more alluring than the standard Topo Chico. Launched in October, Happi crafts fizzy waters infused with cannabis extract and organic juice blends. The Lemon Elderflower, a refreshing, citrusy sip, is 15 calories and contains just 3 grams of sugar — but like all Happi beverages, it is said to evoke the same light buzz as a serving of wine, without the empty caloric intake.
