Rosin edibles are getting popular, but paying extra for edibles that taste like grass?


Dear Stoner: Why would people pay more for edibles that taste like grass? I thought the whole point of legal edibles was to hide the flavor.

Dear Beltron: Yeah, well, you know, it’s just, like, your opinion, man. Some of us love the taste of weed, just like your tough grandpa loved the taste of black coffee in the morning. Don’t hate us for having strong taste buds and chiseled jaws.

Like a cocktail where sweet stuff disguises cheap alcohol, sugar is typically used to mask the flavor of foods.

Seriously, the vast majority of you are here. I’m generally on that side too, but I enjoy the hashy flavor of an edible rosin sometimes, and most of these rosin gum makers do a good job of choosing flavors that complement the terpenes in the rosin. Rosin edibles are also made with a solvent-free extract, with some manufacturers even going so far as to partner with the most popular growers in Colorado and list the strains used in production. From that point of view, I’m totally paying the extra money.

However, most people don’t want to taste the weed in their weed, and this is especially true for edibles. Like a cocktail where sweet stuff disguises cheap alcohol, sugar is typically used to mask the flavor, and we just want to smack enough to hit a good buzz. To each his own.
