Several savvy food producers have recently released new forms of cannabis-infused edibles for marijuana consumers with a sweet tooth.
- San Diego-based candyfloss brand B Edibles has launched a cannabis-infused range containing 100mg of cannabis oil THC. Made from organic, non-GMO sugar, the floss is naturally allergen and gluten-free and comes in four flavours (rose, watermelon, lavender and apple).
- At the luxury end of the scale, high-end LA cannabis company Lord Jones has teamed up with Icelandic rock band Sigur Ros to launch a range of cannabis gums. The flavours, including wild-foraged blackberries, strawberries and blueberries, are inspired by the band's native country. The Wild Sigurberry gums are infused with THC and CBD (cannabidiol) and are available in five different dosages, with prices starting at $40 for a box of nine.

- The marijuana movement could soon reach the mainstream confectionery market via Vermont-based ice-cream giant Ben & Jerry's. The company recently announced that it's considering launching weed-infused versions of its most popular flavours in US states should cannabis be legalised across the US.
