Top 7 Gluten-Free Edibles to Try in 2021
Published on 3/28/21
We love edibles for many reasons, and we want to make sure that everyone has options when it comes to enjoying them - that includes people who are living gluten-free. Fortunately, if you are gluten-intolerant, there are gluten-free options with most everything these days, and cannabis is no exception. Let's take a look at the best gluten-free edibles across the country and which ones you should try.
What It Means to be Gluten Free
Gluten is a common protein found in grains such as wheat, rye and barley. Basically, foods like chips, bread, ketchup, baked goods, pasta and candy are very likely to contain gluten. Certain medical conditions cause adverse reactions to gluten:
- Celiac disease
- Gluten sensitivity
- Gluten ataxia
- Wheat allergies
There are several reasons for a gluten-free diet, including claims that going without improves overall health, weight loss and energy levels. The science behind gluten-free diets for people who do not have an adverse medical condition is not concrete and there is debate as to whether people should or should not eat gluten. Regardless, we have a list of our favorite gluten-free edibles - and trust us, they're pretty great.
