Whether you’re Canadian or America, we recommend that you buy your Cannabis edibles through licensed government or private retailers.Since the legalization of THC edibles is relatively new on both sides of the border, consumers must be wary of unscrupulous companies out to make a quick buck. The following criteria were used to create our list and we recommend using the same when searching for THC edibles.
- Third-Party Tested and Independently Verified
