Chocolate, ice cream, gummies, dried mango, root beer… that’s not the shopping list of someone with a sweet tooth; that’s just a small sampling of the almost countless products the cannabis industry infuses with THC these days. Where once edibles were a means to an end—try as you might have, that brownie wasn’t really drowning out the distinctive flavor of weed—now legit chefs with impressive resumes are creating edibles. (The only problem? Some of these products taste so good, you might find it hard to stick to the recommended serving. Just a tablespoon of creamy, delicious ice cream? C’mon.)

Cannabis business is booming in Massachusetts these days—to the tune of billions of dollars—and since the opening of Greater Boston’s first recreational pot shop four years ago, it seems like there’s a dispensary on every corner, not to mention everything from cannabis-infused dinner parties and meal kits to chocolate-making classes. Accordingly, brands of edibles are sprouting up like, well, weeds, and you don’t have to settle for second-rate infused treats. Sure, edibles have to comply with quite a few regulations—they’re limited to 5.5 mg of THC per serving, for example, and they can’t be shaped like animals, humans, or sports equipment (really!)—but the rules aren’t stifling creativity. Plus, they’re sold in beautiful, gift-worthy packaging, perfectly ready for the holidays for your cannabis-enthusiast friends.

This guide is just the tip of the iceberg of some of the most delicious edibles you can find in the Commonwealth, from a food lover’s perspective. (Most products featured here are 100% homegrown, but we’ve also sprinkled in a few that were created by out-of-state brands but are produced and distributed by a Massachusetts-based partner.) In creating this guide, we asked friends, family, and colleagues, from the cannabis-curious to connoisseurs, to taste a variety of edibles and share their thoughts. Strangely, most forgot to give the requested feedback (shrug). But without further ado, here are 18 chocolate bars, gummies, and more that you’ve got to try. Know of a product that should be on our radar for future updates? Send an email.

Bountiful Farms x Plant Jam chocolate bars

Where to find Bountiful Farms products

Cannabis company Bountiful Farms, which runs a medical dispensary in Natick, produces a wide range of edibles, from peppermint chocolate truffle bites to powdered coffee and hot chocolate mixes. In this guide, we’re highlighting a couple of Bountiful Farms’ collaborations with Plant Jam, whose founder and CEO David Yusefzadeh is a chef whose resume includes a stint at the Michelin-starred Mandarin Oriental Hotel in Hong Kong. He’s been using marijuana for years to help manage pain from Crohn’s disease, but in Massachusetts’ early days in the industry, he was less than impressed with the available options. “When I would go to dispensaries, the edibles were garbage,” Yusefzadeh told Boston in 2019. But not anymore: His collaborations with Bountiful Farms and his own projects are at the forefront of all that’s good in the world of edibles these days.

Take the chocolate, for example: Current products include Peanut Butter Hash Time, Catching Some Cherriezzzz, and more, each with 5 mg of THC per serving. The former is a milk chocolate bar amped up with roasted peanuts, peanut butter, and bananas, while the latter is white chocolate with smoked vanilla, cherries, and lavender-toasted almonds. (The cherry bar also has 2.5 mg of the cannabinoid CBN, which, when consumed in combination with THC, might have a sedative effect. Be forewarned: The name of this chocolate bar does not lie.)

Coast Cannabis Co. chocolate bars

You’ll also see a couple products from Wareham-based Coast Cannabis Co. on this list. Founders and spouses Angela Brown and Brian Cusick—who lay claim to running the state’s first independently owned cannabis manufacturer—are obsessed with keeping ingredients simple. No additives, no artificial dyes, just the good stuff.

The chocolate bars feature organic, fair-trade chocolate from South America and come in milk, dark, and white chocolate varieties. Our current favorite? The s’mores milk chocolate bar. But don’t skip the white chocolate bars, even if you normally eschew this variety of chocolate—the birthday cake bar, full of rainbow sprinkles, is especially fun.

Insa chocolate bars

Founded by lifelong friends who grew up in Springfield, Insa has been around for a decade now, producing a variety of edibles and other goods and operating four dispensaries. The company takes its edibles seriously, with an experienced confectioner, Julian Rose, heading up culinary operations. Rose worked in his family’s pastry shop from a very young age, eventually going on to study pastries and confection professionally.

Rose and the team create luscious chocolate bars with European chocolate, letting the cannabis distillate slowly infuse over 24 hours to yield a consistent—and consistently delicious—flavor. Our current favorite is the limited-edition Coffee & Donuts milk chocolate bar, which features a blend of Colombian and espresso roasts from Western Massachusetts icon Shelburne Falls Coffee Roasters. “Natural doughnut flavors” and a cinnamon-sugar sprinkle round out the bold coffee taste. The product line also includes flavors like double caramel sea salt, strawberry dreamsicle, and mint dark chocolate. Enjoy.

Fruity Things

Betty’s Eddies fruit chews

Remember saltwater taffy? Betty’s Eddies fruit chews are basically that—but infused with THC, of course, and available in flavors like cherry and passionfruit. Produced by Norwood-based MariMed—which now has grow operations, dispensaries, and brand distribution in several states—the Betty’s Eddies lineup includes a range of cannabinoid blends purporting to help you feel a certain way—with the expected fine print about lack of FDA approval, etc. Watermelon Eddies, for example, are marketed as “for energy,” with a blend of THC and THCV, plus L-theanine, an amino acid found in tea that might help with attention and alertness. Need help sleeping? The lemon agave Bedtime Betty’s chews might fit the bill—they’ve got added melatonin.

Coast Cannabis Co. gummies

You read about Coast’s enviable chocolate bars above, but we also want to highlight the company’s gummies. Made without high fructose corn syrup or artificial colors and flavors, the gummies, infused with distilled cannabis oil, let their fruity flavors shine; we’re partial to the sour watermelon and tangerine varieties. Several of Coast’s gummies feature combinations of other cannabinoids in addition to THC, should you feel like experimenting with, say, CBD and CBN. Whichever you choose, pop one in your mouth and then settle in for this photo essay that’ll take you through Coast’s production process for its gummies.

Forbidden Fruit dehydrated fruit

Do you like dried fruit? Do you like cannabis? Forbidden Fruit simply puts the two together, infusing dried mango, apple, pineapple, kiwi, and papaya with THC. They taste just like the dried fruit you’d get at the supermarket, but with the tiniest hint of weed in the aftertaste. Try the mango slices; the company suggests pairing them with salsa, honey, or Champagne. (Note: This is a Denver-based company, but its items are produced and distributed in Massachusetts via Fall River’s Northeast Alternatives.) 

I Am Edible gummies

Where to find I Am Edible products (scroll down on their site to the section titled “Our Partners”)

Three round tins with a hot air balloon logo are open to reveal three different flavors of cannabis-infused gummies.

If we had to pick a favorite in the gummies category, this product line from Fitchburg-based Rev Brands would be the one—in particular, the peach mango fruit chews. Fruity and fabulous, with barely a trace of weed flavor, this is candy you’ll want to eat in big handfuls. But, uh, don’t forget that it’s infused with THC. Vegan, gluten-free, and made with organic, fair-trade sugar, the I Am Edible fruit chews come in tasty flavors like honey peach bourbon, blue raspberry, mimosa, plum honeydew, and lots more. The citric acid and sugar coating gives these a little zing 

Insa gummies

Remember Insa from the chocolate section above? The company also has a line of sugar-coated fruit gummies called Drops, made with actual fruit purees. (Bonus: They’re vegetarian—no gelatin—and gluten-free.) You’ll find different flavors offering different purported effects, like the raspberry energy drops, which only have 2.5 mg of THC and 40 mg of extended-release caffeine. On the other end of the spectrum, there are black cherry gummies with added melatonin, which might aid in sleep. Sour candy lover? Try the sour strawberry and sour green apple varieties.

Lost Farm gummies

Where to find Lost Farm products

Three bags of cannabis-infused gummies feature bold artwork and are marked with the name of the weed strain.

California-based Kiva Confections dreamt up the Lost Farm line of gummies, but here in Massachusetts, they’re produced and distributed via a partnership with Rev Brands. The cool thing about these gummies—which are made with live resin and solventless live rosin—is that each flavor features a specific weed strain and prominently mentions it on the packaging, so you can really nerd out and get exactly what you want, whether that’s “island punch”-flavored gummies featuring the indica strain Dosi Jam or raspberry gummies made with the hybrid strain Wedding Cake. “Novices need not apply,” as the Lost Farms tagline says, although we’d argue that these still taste great without in-depth knowledge of specific strains.

Other Edibles

Bountiful Farms x Plant Jam seasonings

The Bountiful Farms and Plant Jam collaboration doesn’t just end with the chocolate bars mentioned above; there’s also a line of seasonings in the works, with a porcini mushroom seasoning currently available for sale at Bountiful Farms’ Natick dispensary and a chili lime seasoning in the final rounds of testing. The porcini seasoning has a deep umami taste, perfect for sprinkling on finished dishes like grilled meats, pasta, roasted vegetables, or buttered popcorn. Infused seasonings are a little trickier to use than, say, a gummy: Depending on how you cook, you may find that the amount of seasoning you want doesn’t match up with the amount of cannabis you want. But if anyone’s doing it right, it’s these folks—you’ll get plenty of flavor from a single serving of this product.

(Bountiful Farms also collaborates on edibles with other local businesses. Not currently available but worth mentioning is the infused barbecue sauce made with local mini-chain the Smoke Shop BBQ. Keep an eye out; that one may be coming back this summer, as well as other potential Smoke Shop collabs. Infused butter cake, anyone?)

Bubby’s Baked baked goods

Where to find Bubby’s Baked products

In a world where edibles have gone above and beyond old-school brownies, Bubby’s Baked—another MariMed brand—is a wave of nostalgia, drawing inspiration from those treats of yore. The product line includes soft, chewy bites of brownie, snickerdoodle, and chocolate chip cookie. Sorry to mention the word “moist,” but you’ll be pleasantly surprised at how not-dry these are. Try warming up the small-batch, full-spectrum treats briefly for that homemade feel. And continue onto the next product for a fun pairing suggestion…

Cloud Creamery ice cream and sorbet

Where to find Cloud Creamery products

Plant Jam’s David Yusefzadeh is also behind infused ice cream and sorbet brand Cloud Creamery, churning out fantastic flavors like classic mint chip, s’mores, and vegan piña colada, which is made with a coconut milk base. Currently in our freezer? Chocolate truffle—rich chocolate ice cream with salted ganache chunks. A warning for cannabis newbies: If you’re going to have trouble keeping to a single serving of an edible, this will probably be the one; it’s just too delicious. (If you’re more of a multi-serving user, might we suggest pairing a small scoop of this ice cream with a Bubby’s Baked brownie bite?)

Mr. Moxey’s mints

Where to find Mr. Moxey’s products

Three boxes of Mr. Moxey's Artisan Mints, each in a pastel blue, purple, or green, are lined up on a sparkly green background.

The packaging of Mr. Moxey’s—another brand born out of state but produced and distributed here by Rev Brands—will surely remind you of a famous, non-infused brand of “curiously strong” mints. Mr. Moxey’s hits similar herbal, minty-fresh notes flavor-wise, but our testers were especially fond of them because of how not strong they are, cannabis-wise, at least depending on which variety you choose. If you’re just looking for the tiniest bit of THC, try the Relief mints—5 mg of CBD and just 1 mg of THC each—with chamomile, ginger, and lemongrass flavors. The Zen variety, with peppermint and lemon verbena, also has 1 mg of THC but boosts the CBD to 25 mg, while Dream (lavender, valerian root) balances 2.5 mg THC with 7.5 mg CBD. And there are other combos with more THC, too—options abound!


Canna Drinks canned mocktails

Chris Edwards—founder of Massachusetts-based Alternative Therapies Group, which operates three dispensaries north of Boston—launched a new venture called Coastal Infusions late last year, starting things off with a trio of canned mocktails infused with THC. These beachy, easy-drinking concoctions lean on the sweet side, so the sugar-averse may want to explore some of the other options in this section, but others will find lots to love in the spins on a mojito, piña colada, and watermelon margarita.

Cantrip seltzers and sodas

Where to find Cantrip products

Four cans are labeled with Cantrip branding, each with a different flavor of seltzer or soda.

Cantrip touts its nano-emulsion technology (read up on that a bit here) as the reason its infused drinks are much faster-acting than your run-of-the-mill edible. Science aside, these are just delightful drinks. The seltzers come in breezy flavors like lemon basil, watermelon mint, and blackberry lavender, which pair pretty seamlessly with most meals, and there’s also orange soda and root beer for the young-at-heart-but-of-legal-cannabis-consumption-age.

Levia seltzers

Where to find Levia products

Levia’s core lineup of flavors includes names like “Dream” and “Achieve,” corresponding to the purported effects of the THC in each. Achieve, for example, features a sativa blend (and a raspberry-lime flavor combo) that aims to energize you, while berry-flavored Dream, with its indica blend, may mellow you out more. But the real fun comes with Levia’s limited-edition flavor releases: Watch for fun stuff like raspberry cheesecake or Pineapple Express. Whichever variety you try, Levia’s seltzers pack strong flavors and a fast-acting effect, not to mention beautiful can art—very giftable.

Rec. Weed beverage

Where to find Rec. Weed

Two colorful cans say "Hop Forward Rec Weed THC Infused" and are displayed on a sparkly green background.

This is the first release from a partnership between Harpoon Brewery and Novel Beverage Company, and we hope it won’t be the last—although we’re suckers for green tea and passionfruit, both present here, so they may have already peaked with this one! Rec. Weed infuses the aforementioned ingredients with hops and THC, resulting in a smooth, citrusy canned drink, lightly carbonated, that screams summer. Harpoon’s product announcement includes some interesting details about how it’s brewed similar to a session ale, if you want to dive more into that here. (Note: Rec. Weed does not contain alcohol.) Like with the other beverages in this guide, you’ll find that the effect comes on a bit quicker than infused food items. By the way, if you’re heading up to Maine for a summer trip, Rec. Weed’s also available up there, but the Maine version has 10 mg of THC per serving instead of 5, thanks to different state regulations.

MXR’s Stir It Up syrups

Where to buy MXR products

The other items in this section are canned and ready to drink—once you can figure out how to open them, anyway, since THC-infused products are packaged in a way that requires an advanced engineering degree to break into—but what if you prefer to figure out your own creations? This Rev Brands product line lets you play bartender and make your own THC mocktails. Infused with distilled cannabis oil and terpenes, the syrups come in raspberry, watermelon, and Plasmic Cooler (yep, it’s bright green), with each having different characteristics. Raspberry features the indica-leaning hybrid Sunset Sherbet, for example—purported to help relieve tension. Break out your bar tools and figure out some cool combos.
