The world of cannabis is riddled with stereotypes. Movies like Half Baked and Pineapple Express tell us everything we need to know–stoners get high, eat all the junk food in sight, and sit around laughing at nothing in particular. Before California’s recent legalization of adult-use cannabis, maybe Cheech and Chong wasn’t so far off but the cannabis industry is evolving and so are consumers.
There was a time when society viewed smoking as more harmful than drinking alcohol or smoking cigarettes, and no question more harmful than taking over-the-counter medication. Today’s viewpoint is quite the contrast. Health conscious millennials are starting to reject traditional forms of medication and reaching instead for natural remedies, including cannabis.
Oakland-based cannabis edible company, 3Leaf, fits right into that niche. They understand that consumers who look to cannabis as a healthier alternative to their wellness needs, don’t want a sugar filled brownie or an artificially dyed gummy. That’s why 3Leaf’s “food first” edibles are made with all natural ingredients and high quality cannabis.
Education is vital to establishing the ideal cannabis experience. Local dispensaries are often happy to answer any questions, but 3Leaf’s blog is also a fantastic place to start. On their blog you’ll learn that edibles are a great product for first-time users because dosing is pretty much managed for you, and you can be sure of exactly how much of both THC and CBD you are consuming.
3Leaf offers low-dosage products in a variety of combinations. Beginners are often encouraged to start with a 1:1 ratio infused edible which are made with an equal blend of THC and CBD distillate. The THC is what gives you that “high” feeling while the CBD has amazing pain relief benefits. One-to-one ratio infused edibles are great for relieving physical pain and for sleep support. If you’re looking for a starter option in the shop, 3Leaf’s Peanut Butter Cookies and Double Chocolate Cookies are both 1:1 edibles. If you’re looking for a purely THC edible, their Quinoa Granola Bites and Coconut Oatmeal Cookies are both infused with 10mg of THC and the fruit jellies are offered in both 2.5mg and 5mg.
A great way to find the perfect dose is to start small and build up as you adapt. The varying low doses offer endless possibilities of mix and match ratios to create a personalized 3Leaf experience and prepackaged single servings allow you to toss these edibles in your bag when you’re on the go or just feeling incognito.
Edibles are also great for enhancing creativity and boosting performance when completing daily tasks. Whether conquering emails or meeting with friends, these dose-able snacks are the most convenient way to elevate your day. 3Leaf Fruit Jellies are a great low-dose option when you need to control your cannabis experience. With two dose options, 2.5mg and 5mg, these tasty jellies are perfect for the more meticulous consumer. 3Leaf uses real fruit in their recipes, so there’s no room for artificial flavors.
Not only are 3Leaf edibles great for boosting creativity, but their CBD infused edibles also add an invigorating benefit that is perfect for mindful meditation or restorative fitness. CBD has a calming effect on the mind and body, which is especially helpful when targeting problem areas. That’s why pairing a CBD infused 3Leaf edible with some restorative fitness can be extremely beneficial. Local recovery studio, Fitsom, is down with the cannabis cause and embraces their guest’s individual fitness preferences. Tension and stress have nothing on a Peanut Butter Cookie and a session at Fitsom Studios.
3Leaf edibles can be enjoyed in numerous ways, which extend beyond stress relief and restorative work. 3Leaf is designed to enhance the consumer’s day by elevating their mood, clearing their mind, and improving their focus. Incorporating 3Leaf into your time in nature as well as sharing with friends is a great way to unwind and open the mind to new experiences.
In addition to being all natural, one of our favorite things about 3Leaf edibles is that they do not compromise at all on taste. All 3Leaf edibles are crafted with zero cannabis taste and are full of all the flavors we love–chocolate, coconut, and peanut butter, to name a few. The cookies are so delicious, you have to remind yourself not to eat too many at once. That’s not microdosing folks!
The Peanut Butter Cookies are beautifully balanced with a hint of peanut butter and a couple of chocolate chips placed right on top. And the Quinoa Granola Bites are just that–mini, soft quinoa granola bars topped with a chocolate drizzle that are simply divine. Let’s just say we put in a formal request with 3Leaf for full sized quinoa granola bars… we’ll keep you posted!
Even more, the Fruit Jellies are little drops of deliciousness. They come in both strawberry and blood orange and are crafted with real fruit purée, infused with THC, and shaped into cubes. With a small resealable package, you’ll want to make sure you always have your jellies with you.
