Summer is in full swing here in Colorado, and with temperatures consistently reaching the high 90s during the past few weeks, it seems like we are on track for even hotter months to follow. That in mind, I decided to round up some pot-filled products that are guaranteed to keep you cool during the burning hot summertime heat.
Among their huge selection of edible products, Dixie offers refreshing mints in several different flavors. I’ve only tried the Orange Awakening flavor so far, and I can definitely say that a few perked me right up that morning. Other ingredients that are used to formulate the Orange Awakening mints are Siberian ginseng, ginkgo, matcha and orange oil, which help enhance your alertness and increase your stamina. Dixie’s additional flavors of mints include Peppermint Relaxing and Synergy Mixed Berry – each Peppermint contains pure Co2 extracted THC ingredients such as peppermint oil, ashwagandha, lemon balm and passion flower that support a soothing and relaxing effect, and the Synergy Mixed Berry mints are packed with bold flavor. All of these are available and sold in Colorado, and come in both 5 milligram and 10 milligram dosages.
CannaPunch has been a staple in the Colorado edible market since 2009, and drinking some is a guarantee way to help quench your thirst this summer. The cannabis-infused beverage punch is 100% organic and vegan, as well as gluten-free, soy-free, and corn syrup free, and is made from some of the highest quality Colorado cannabis. These fruity drinks are available in different strengths, ranging from 100-200 mg. They come in refreshing flavors including grape, watermelon, and pineapple mango, and a sativa specific option – black cherry.

Gummies…of any kind (On top of ice cream of course!)
Summertime and ice cream pretty much go hand in hand, but why not make things even sweeter by topping off your cold treat with some THC infused gummies? A majority of dispensaries around town offer some kind of gummy, whether it be sour squares or regular chewies, so be sure to ask, depending on what type you prefer.
