One of the most ridiculous claims pushed by anti-legalization “activists” in the run-up to California's 2016 vote to approve recreational cannabis was that the new laws would make edibles illegal. While there have been reports of edible shortages thanks to the slow rollout of recreational-use laws, one glance at any dispensary or delivery service menu instantly refutes this erroneous and self-serving claim.

In fact, edibles should be more popular and plentiful than ever in the recreational-use era, especially among new, cannabis-curious users who are not accustomed to or interested in inhaling smoke or vapor. Flowers and vapes require not only lung power but the purchase of accessories, while candies, chips and cookies require little in the way of commitment.

The gummies produced by CalVape subsidiary District Edibles come in a variety of flavors matched to their strain type. Their sativa strain is flavored Cherry Cola, and although slightly medicinal, the smell and aroma are authentic to the beverage in a Pixy Stix sort of way. Colored orange-red and shaped like a medical cross, each piece of District Edibles Sativa Cherry Cola Gummies comes individually encased in foil.

As with the District Edibles Indica Blue Raspberry Gummies, it only took 15 minutes to feel the THC, although this high was significantly less sleepy and more distracted. My eyelids and limbs felt weighty and I found it hard to focus, yet my energy level stayed high. The Sativa Cherry Cola Gummies provide more of a Spotify-and-video-games kind of high.
