You’re thinking about experimenting with edibles. You know that it’s a bad idea to try too much, too fast, so you’re seeking beginner-friendly options that won’t be too strong. Of course, you’re still looking for products that will provide a fun experience and promote some overall benefits.

From peach rings to freezer pops to cotton candy popcorn, the edibles market is growing by the day with products that are increasingly creative — and increasingly delicious. But being a responsible cannabis consumer isn’t just about choosing which edibles sound the tastiest, it’s about choosing which products meet your needs and experience level. So, what are the best edibles for beginners? Here are Mood’s top recommendations.

1. Micro-Dose Delta-9 THC Gummies


Micro-Dose Delta-9 THC Gummies

The first thing to take into account is dosage. You want to start with a small dose — in this case, a micro-dose. The Micro-Dose Delta-9 THC Gummies contain 5mg of Delta-9 THC, and you may want to start with half of that if you’re a true beginner. The other thing to take into account is whether the edible contains a ratio of compounds. Specifically, a ratio of CBD and THC. This is an ideal combination for those new to cannabis, since CBD is known to mellow out the effects of Delta-9 THC and help with overall relaxation. The Micro-Dose Delta-9 THC Gummies contain a 1:10 ratio of THC:CBD, so there’s 10x more CBD than THC — creating a smoother, more balanced high for a cannabis newcomer.

2. 15mg Delta-9 THC Gummies


15mg Delta 9 THC Gummies

Another popular ratio that’ll help you ease into the effects of edibles is a 1:1 ratio of THC:CBD. The 15mg Delta-9 THC Gummies have a 1:1 ratio, and though they won’t be as mellow as a 1:10 ratio, they’re still more beginner-friendly than edibles containing strictly Delta-9 THC. These gummies offer an even, enjoyable high. Given that they’re each 15mg, you’ll want to start with a ¼ and then wait an hour to see how you feel before taking more.

3. Chillout 25mg Delta 8 THC Gummies


Chillout 25mg Delta 8 THC Gummies

The Chillout 25mg Delta 8 THC Gummies are made with Delta-8 THC, a hemp product derived from CBD that’s known to promote a more mellow high than Delta-9 THC. It leads to many of the same sensations as classic weed, but with less potential to become overwhelmed or paranoid. Though these gummies contain 25mg of Delta-8 THC, they’re actually less potent than the 15mg Delta-9 THC Gummies by nature of them containing the milder Delta-8 compound. Perfect for beginners seeking a laid-back buzz, simply start with a half (or less) of a Chillout 25mg Delta 8 THC Gummy, and wait an hour before taking more.

4. Sleepytime Delta-9 THC Gummies


Sleepytime Delta-9 THC Gummies

Many people start experimenting with cannabis due to a specific problem or need. Whether they’re experiencing pain and seeking body-soothing effects, feeling unmotivated and looking for creativity, or feeling closed-off and trying to become more social, cannabis can be a powerful tool to help with a range of issues. One of the most common reasons people seek out edibles? For sleep. Mood’s Sleepytime Delta-9 THC Gummies are designed to help you wind down and experience a deeper, more restful night’s sleep. They include a 1:1:1 ratio of three different cannabinoids: 15mg of Delta-9 THC, 15mg of CBD, and 15mg of CBN — a cannabinoid known specifically for promoting a sleepy feeling. Lastly, they contain a gentle 0.5mg dose of Melatonin. With their mellowing and soothing effects, these gummies are perfect for beginners looking to improve their sleep. Take one (or a piece of one) about 60-90 minutes before you want to be lights out, and get ready for a new level of rest.

The main takeaways? The best edibles for beginners are either made with Delta-8 THC or a ratio of THC and CBD, both of which promote a more mellow high than pure Delta-9 THC edibles. As you can probably tell from this list, gummies are usually the best place to start. They’re easy to break into pieces, stay fresh for a long time, and most importantly, tend to come in lower doses than other forms of edibles.
