Ruby Sugar is our featured vendor this week, and if you haven't experienced this little gem yet, there is no better time to stock up (Ruby is 20% off through Sunday, May 21!). Ruby's certified organic sugar infused with cannabinoid crystals are the original, flexible edible.  This trademark technology makes their sugar water (and cake batter!) soluble.

Product: Ruby Sugar packets

Reviewer: Yolanda A., Vela Guide

Overall experience: Easy to use, the texture is light, it's easily dissolvable, tastes just like sugar - just a smidge sweeter.

Effect: Falls in the middle of the Vela Spectrum (not sleepy nor overly energectic).

Uses: Add it to oatmeal or coffee in the morning.  Think fun time, like camping. Or, for an easy night-cap dessert, sprinkle some Ruby on fresh strawberries. Truly, use anytime to sweeten your day!

Dosage: The sugar comes in 10mg packets. If you're new to edibles, just use half of the packet initially and wait at least 45 minutes before having any more.  After that, add micro-dosed amounts (e.g. 2.5mg or less at a time) until you know your body's tolerace for ingesting cannabis.

Baking tips: I like to bake ... literally! You can use Ruby in any recipe, just determine how many milligrams of cannabis you want in each serving first.  

  • For example, if you want about 5mg of THC in each cookie and your recipe makes two dozen cookies, you will need 120mg (or 12 packets) of Ruby Sugar (24 cookies x 5mg each = 120mg of THC).
  • When measuring out the sugar portion of your recipe, put the Ruby sugar in the measuring cup first.  Once you have the total amount of infused sugar you want, supplement the balance of the required sugar in the recipe with regular, non-infused, sugar.
  • Be sure to mix your ingredients well at every phase. This is critical to getting an even distribution of THC throughout your batter. 
  • Be sure to put these treats in a well-marked container so that you don't over-indulge.  Also, keep out of reach of children and pets.
  • Enjoy!
