It looks like the kind of bag of dank kush your high school dealer used to carry, but these buds are actually white chocolate-covered cookie bites that don’t contain any THC or CBD. From Vancouver-based brand Tasty Buds, they come in three flavours: Blueberry Yum Yum, Mint Cookies, Raspberry Haze and our favourite, Canadian Maple Crunch. Unlike real edibles, you don’t have to worry about portion control.
