This year, PLUS will donate a percentage of their proceeds from their gummy tins to the San Francisco-based Transgender, Gender-Variant & Intersex Justice Project (TGIJP). For that reason alone they deserve a place on this list.

They also deliver their top-notch cannabis-infused gummies in Los Angeles, Humboldt County, SF Bay Area, Sacramento, and Contra Costa. PLUS provides the power of cannabis edibles in a way that you’ve never experienced before.

Calexo makes cannabis-infused drinks with zero artificial sweeteners, colors, or flavors, and 10 mg of THC per bottle. Each Calexo drink takes around 15 minutes to kick in and 1 hour to offset. They manage to do this by nano-emulsifying the THC used in each drink.

This nano-emulsification makes it so the THC can be rapidly absorbed by the body through the pores under to tongue and on the stomach lining.
