If you’ve ever said to yourself, “you know what the world needs? A cannabis gummy the size of a body pillow,” you’ll be glad because your prayers have been answered! And if you’re from Missouri, you’ll be proud to know your home state is where this majestic, THC-infused record-setting confection was born.
Good Day Farm recently unveiled a 135 pound cannabis gummy, setting a record as the largest marijuana-infused gummy on earth. Their head chef, Peter Sturdevant, hand-crafted this enormous gummy alongside his team to celebrate the company’s expansion into the Missouri market.
Good Day Farm is based out of Little Rock, Arkansas, but recently opened Missouri manufacturing and cultivation facilities in Columbia. They also have dispensaries in Cape Girardeau and Independence. The record-setting gummy is attracting attention from Missouri medical marijuana card holders, who are curious about getting their hands on some normal-sized gummies.
This Isn’t the First Enormous Marijuana Edible
Perhaps the inspiration for this mega-gummy was a gargantuan marijuana-infused brownie made in Massachusetts last year. The brownie weighed 850 pounds and contained 20,000 milligrams of THC.
While the brownie weighed about six times as much as the Good Day Farms gummy, it doesn’t pack as much of a punch. The world record gummy contains a staggering 100,000 milligrams of THC, which is five times the potency of the blockbuster brownie.
To give you an idea of how much THC that is, a standard cannabis gummy from Good Day Farms contains 10mg of THC. The record-setting treat is as potent as a thousand gummies, so you’re going to want to pace yourself.
The History of Gummies
While cannabis-enhanced gummy products are fairly new, gummy candies have been around for almost a century. The first gummies in existence originated in the 1920’s and were invented by a man named Hans Riegel, who founded the Haribo company. The first gummy bear, called “The Dancing Bear,” debuted shortly after World War I.
Gummies became truly popular beginning in the 1980’s when Haribo introduced the multi-colored, fruit flavored gummy bears. Around the same time, Haribo’s competitor, Trolli, invented the gummy worm, which has become the most popular gummy candy variety of all time.
To this day, gummies have grown into a wide array of products, from Sour Patch Kids to gummy vitamins to THC-infused marijuana edibles.
The World’s Largest Non-THC Gummy is Even Bigger
We’re not trying to knock Good Day Farm, as a 135 pound gummy is no small feat, and they should be proud of having set a record among all cannabis edibles. But, when you remove the magic of marijuana from the equation, the biggest gummy of all time is nearly twenty times larger.
According to Guinness World Records, the largest gummy of all time was made by Shiba, an Iranian gummy manufacturer, in January of this year. Their gummy, shaped like a dolphin, weighed a staggering 1,212.5 kilograms, which equals over 2,673 pounds. A treat like that can cure even the most serious case of the munchies.
Gummies and Other Edibles Offer a Smokeless Alternative
While we’re on the subject of THC-infused gummies, this is a great time to mention that we’re living in a historic time for medical marijuana. There are now more ways to consume cannabis than ever before, giving patients relief without having to inhale smoke.
Cannabis gummies are just one of many products that Missouri medical marijuana patients can find at dispensaries throughout the state. Patients who don’t want to smoke can get their medical marijuana through edibles, tinctures, vapes, and more. There is even a burgeoning craft cannabis market creating artisanal products for patients looking for a unique medical marijuana experience.
For Patients New to Edibles:
If the idea of a tasty cannabis gummy has you ready to take the leap into your first edible medical marijuana experience, you are in for a treat. Remember, marijuana affects everyone differently, so there are some steps you may want to consider to ensure your first edible cannabis experience is a good one.
Don’t take edibles on an empty stomach - at least not your first time. Edibles are safe, whether taken on a full or empty stomach, but if it’s your first time, you should probably eat something first. You don’t know how your body is going to react.
Start Low and Go Slow. When using cannabis products for the first time, always start with a small dose. Edible cannabis hits your body differently than smoking it, so take less than you need the first time. If you realize you haven’t reached your desired effect, you can up the dose a little the next time.
Be patient. The full effects of a gummy can take awhile to kick in. Don’t assume you took too low of a dose and then ingest more. Keep in mind that THC consumed through the digestive tract typically lasts longer than being smoked, so it may take awhile to kick in. But when it does, it’ll be worth it!
Relief Comes in Many Forms
There are a lot of ways to get the relief that medical marijuana provides, from smokeable flower to edibles, tinctures, beverages, and more.
