Edibles Legalization is Almost Here.
Who’s excited? Friendibles is. We think its great news for out kit.
The B.C. Government just put out a call for infused edible product submissions because they’re concerned that there won’t be enough to meet demand once Oct 17th actually hits. This is an intriguing call to action considering BC’s relatively impotent roll-out of licensed dispensaries, causing most user to turn to black market sources. BC has 14% of the nation’s population but only accounts for 7% of the total sales of recreational bud. Compared to its neighbour Alberta that has 28% of total sales with only 12% of the national population. The big factor here is convenience. It’s not like the product in Alberta is any better, its just much, much easier to go out and buy. This is also probably the envy of our brethren in the Toronto area, who are criminally short on licensed brick-and-mortar stores. Not to go too far out on a tangent, but even when you do manage to get some legal stuff, its always too dry (not a problem for infusion into coconut oil though).
Back to the BC Government’s open submission period, which lasted for a whopping 8 hours btw, its up to Health Canada (the Feds) not BC whose products get approved for sale. The Federal approval process requires at least 60 days for review before the product become available to consumers. This means if anything becomes available, it’ll be just in time for Christmas shopping… and in limited quantities.
It’ll be anyone’s guess if the roll-out of edibles will be better or worse than the original legalization a year ago (our guess is that it’ll be about the same).
So if you want to be one of the first people to try legal edibles, have fun in the over-night line up for something that will be way too strong for the majority of us.
Meanwhile the Friendibles fam will have already become master’s of making our own, with the right amount of stuff in eat piece. Crowdfunding for kits goes up soon. Stay tuned to our Facebook page or signup for our newsletter at our website to keep up to date.

Need help getting someone to try weed? I broke through to my parents in-law with edibles. My in-laws had withstood 20 years of people trying to offer them joints and other dried marijuana to smoke. But when I offered them something to eat, it only took 15 minutes. In this article, I discuss what was important for me when introducing someone new to cannabis. With new edibles products on the market, I also have a look at some of the best ones to recommend to your friends or family just getting started.
In this post we provide a buying guide for at-home DIY tools for making edibles. Starting with a discussion of the three key steps of making cannabis infused foods. The article then reviews products that are designed to improve the process of making edibles, either one of the three key steps or all. We’ll help you to make a choice to decide whether you should consider one of these products and which one would best fit your needs.
If you’ve ever put raw marijuana on a cracker and tried to eat it, you probably didn’t feel a darn thing. The sublime effects of edibles can’t be achieved by eating cannabis raw. It is missing a very important step.
