District Edibles makes scratch-made, gluten-free gummies in six flavors with two flavors in each category (sativa, indica, hybrid). Compared to many other gummies on the market, District’s Edibles are low in sugar – a huge plus for people like me who aren’t into overly sugary treats.I brought home a package of District Edibles Blue Raspberry Gummies (10 mg each). And after a long day at work, I decided to give one a try before heading to dinner with friends.
I’ve got to give it to District Edibles, their packaging is totally unique. A hard, plastic, child-resistant container about the size of a cigarette pack houses these edibles and is adorned with metallic gold, deep purple, and black color scheme. For environmental purposes, I’m not usually a fan of plastic packaging. But District Edibles makes sure their plastic is recyclable and I can also re-use this packaging as a joint holder! Win-win.When I try to open this package I run into problems, even with the instructions printed on the package. The box is a little bulky in my small hands, so I find it difficult to squeeze the two latches at the same time. Luckily, District Edibles provides a comedic and helpful 30-second video on their Instagram to help the packaging-challenged consumers like me. Just like the video shows, I lay the package flat on the table giving me more stability, squeeze the two latches on the side, and pull straight out – the packaging easily opens.The labeling gives me just enough information to be compliant and informative but doesn’t go the extra mile. The top of the container is clearly marked with a deep purple sticker and “indica” printed in all caps. On the front, the District Edibles metallic gold logo is placed right in the center, with a tamper-proof seal below.District Edibles includes a note saying the cannabis oil used in this product is purified using CO2 and/or ethanol. I would love to know more about the actual strains used and how they were grown, more details on the cannabinoid content, and some way to verify lab testing results.
