Cannabis Honey Bundt Cakes

As many newcomers rush to join the quickly expanding cannabis industry, it’s important to remember that many dedicated entrepreneurs started their businesses when the “cannabis space” was literally underground in a basement growroom. Corey Thomas grew up in a family that embraced the plant, but cultivating it covertly meant that a certain amount of secrecy permeated everyday life.

“We were taught not to talk about what we do,” Thomas shared, explaining how it can still be a little scary to give interviews, but that it’s more important than ever for small time farmers to step into the spotlight. “I’ve lived in Southern California my entire life, and I need to stand up for what I believe in.”

Thomas helms Honey Pot, producing cannabis-infused honey, tea and topicals that have garnered five HIGH TIMES Cannabis Cup awards, including a recent triumph in San Bernardino resulting in a First Place win in the edibles category for their Tea Pot branded Calendula Guava Mango Black Tea. The road to victory has been a long one, but Thomas credits the support of her friends and family for her incredible success, as well as the six employees who assist in delivering these sought-after products to over 200 California dispensaries.

“It’s been a lot of pounding the pavement, giving away samples and building relationships,” Thomas shared. “And watching the changes in the industry over the last few years has been surreal.”

Cannabis Cup Edibles Judge

EDIBLES MMJ07I've been reviewing edibles for the High Times Cannabis Cup competitions since 2012, and have sampled over 500 sweet and savory infused items. Edibles are evaluated according to their taste, appearance, potency (as assessed by lab testing), originality, healthiness and quality of packaging and labeling information.

One of the objectives of the HIGH TIMES Cannabis Cup competitions has been to raise the bar for makers of infused products. In the edibles category, judges reward not only the competitors with the most professional packaging, but also the tastiest and most innovative new items.

When shopping for edibles, it’s best to find a treat that is dosed appropriately for you, meaning the recommended serving size should deliver your desired amount of THC in a portion that will satisfy a sweet tooth. Avoid the super-strong tiny truffle that needs to be sliced into razor-thin pieces for a decent dose, along with the huge slice of cheesecake that only delivers a small THC payload. The ideal edible is something that will neither get you too high or too fat, but please your palate with a dose that’s “just right.” Start with 20 to 50 milligrams if you’re a seasoned smoker, and nibble only 10 mg of THC if you’ve never used the herb before.—2013 Best Edibles List
