Adventures in Edibles

While most people associate marijuana with smoking, with the rise of medical marijuana culture in recent years, marijuana-infused products, more commonly referred to as edibles, now come in more forms than you could count, from hot sauces to gummy bears. Some patients choose these products to avoid exposure to smoke, some because edibles can be a more discreet way to medicate. Then again, some people just prefer the effects via ingesting.

If you haven't checked into it, you might be surprised by the sheer volume and variety of options. We picked some of the most intriguing edibles from local dispensaries.
