Forget the chocolates – here are tasty treats to beat the heat.


It’s been really hot lately. Turn your edibles into hot melts. Candies, chocolates, and chewy candies are some of the most popular types of infused foods, but they are all particularly prone to melting in the heat. While these products dominate the edible areas in cannabis stores, they aren’t the only ones on the shelves.

Here are three to try so that you don’t have to worry about melting on the drive back from the store.



As one of the leaders in the non-traditional infused products market, Vancouver, Fairwinds in Washington makes everything from inhalers to suppositories, but it’s their tinctures that are most widely used locally. Whether you’re looking for something CBD-forward, something THC-rich, or something in between, the Fairwinds tincture line has something for everyone.

Since it is a tincture, the products are inherently heat-resistant. Some are even heat inducing, like their Sriracha tincture, which has a whip of 6,000 Scoville units. By comparison, jalapeños have a maximum of 8,000 Scoville units. If you’re someone who can’t get enough of this heat, this might be the product for you.

Savory snacks can save the day during a heatwave when sweet snacks would melt away. Chocolate covered pretzels? Not this time of year.

June’s pretzels from Smokey Point Productions offer eight different flavors, such as salt and vinegar or jalapeño ranch, that would fit right in the chip aisle in the grocery store. That means you don’t have to worry about the candy melting off on your pocket or your fingers. They come in packs of 10, with each individual pretzel providing 10 mg of THC.


They are available from most pharmacies in the area, but not every store has every taste. Leafly’s online menu tool is a great way to find the flavor you want and find out where it’s in stock before you go.


Northwest Cannabis Solutions’ left-handed spice brand is perhaps the most versatile edible product on the market. With four products – salt, sugar, cinnamon and sugar as well as ramen spice – all enriched with 10 mg THC per serving, left-handed offers are edible and constituent in equal parts.

Preparing dinner on the grill? Finish it off with some infused salt. Pouring a glass of lemonade on a hot day? Sweeten with a little sugar. Eating hot soup in the middle of summer for some reason? Throw in the infused ramen seasoning I guess.
