Vacation-Friendly Cannabis Edibles for Your Visit to OregonMatt StangelJuly 6, 2018
If you’re visiting Oregon to enjoy the region’s natural wonders or cultural trappings and want to enhance your stay with a little cannabis, an infused treat is an excellent choice. Oregon’s adult-use edibles are affordable, frequently low-dose, and offer the special-occasion highs that great travel stories are made of.
We compiled this list of Oregon’s most travel-friendly edibles to pair with your stop-through. Be sure to start small, keep what you buy in-state, and take a Lyft if you’ve imbibed.
Friendly advice: If you’re new to edibles, we recommend a 1:1 CBD-THC ratio. The cannabinoid CBD has been observed to ameliorate anxiety-related side effects of THC. With an equal dosage of CBD and THC, a calming, manageable experience is a more likely outcome.
Sunny Spray by OM Remedies
A full-plant, RSO-derived oral-spray tincture with a fresh, minty flavor.
124mg THC, 141mg CBD per 0.5 fl oz bottle || $40+tax
OM Remedies Sunny Spray is the single edible I’d recommend to absolutely anyone—both regular cannabis consumers and newcomers alike. It’s a fast-acting, 1:1 CBD-THC-ratio oral spray with a minty, mouthwash flavor that reliably improves your sense of well-being, boosting mood and encouraging physical rejuvenation in equal measures without forcing a standardized dosage.
One pump of the nozzle dispenses 1mg of both THC and CBD, making it simple to find your personal sweet spot (five sprays is recommended for most). The full-plant, RSO-derived tincture delivers an experience that’s more akin to smoking cannabis than distillate-based products, and is quickly absorbed through tissues in the mouth to deliver effects in minutes rather than hours.
Sold in a stashable 0.5 fl oz bottle, Sunny Spray is an ideal travel companion. A few spritzes will ease your passenger-seat blues on long road trips, as well as relieve the aches and bruises incurred during that seasonal 10-mile hike you meant to start training for months ago.
Chili Lime Almonds by Hunny Bear
Almonds are a great source of protein. And THC.
1.3mg THC per almond, 21mg THC per container || $7+tax
Cookies and candies and futurist marijuana-infused drinks all have their time and place. But sometimes edibles need to perform as, well, food. (That is, food with nutritional value that isn’t sequestered to the slim, sugary triangle at the top of the food pyramid.)
Enter Hunny Bear’s infused almonds, a hiker’s best friend sold in packs of 16 spiced nuts and in familiar flavors like Chili Lime and Cajun. These are great for when your body needs real fuel and you also want to stimulate your endocannabinoid system.
Added bonus: Hunny Bear’s almonds are just about as discreet as you can get out on the trail—no visual metaphors for consumption here!—and they make great gifts for your vegan and paleo hosts. Edibles, pre-rolls - it's all good while staring at Mount Hood

Balancing 1:1 Peppermints by Mr. Moxey’s Mints
Microdose servings of THC and CBD in the easy form factor of a mint.
5mg THC and 5mg CBD per mint, 50mg THC and 50mg CBD per pack || Assorted flavors and cannabinoid ratios || $20-30+tax
Perhaps the most shelf-stable and therefore travel-worthy of all the edibles we’ve chosen for your holiday, Mr. Moxey’s Mints are low-dose breath fresheners that come in various flavors like cinnamon and peppermint—flavors that are intended to steer the impact of these distillate-derived mints.
We opted for Balancing 1:1 Peppermints, as an even ratio of THC and CBD has been observed to produce anxiolytic effects, which seems appropriate for travel. After all, navigating unfamiliar places can be a little hair-raising when things don’t go as planned (they never do). So it seems to follow that anything to soothe your nerves in stressful moments will help you bounce back to your cheerful self and enjoy your vacation, hiccups and all.
THC Capsules by Shadowbox Farms
Low-dose, vegan-friendly cannabis-oil pills.
5mg THC per capsule, 100mg THC per bottle || 20 caps per bottle || $28+tax
A pill is a comfortable cultural metaphor for wellness and traditional medicine, so if cannabis products are new to you and perhaps a little scary, there’s no shame in starting with what you know. Shadowbox Farms’ THC Capsules deliver vegan-friendly 5mg of THC with all the tech requirements of a glass of water.
These look nearly identical to fish oil supplements or any number of gel-capped medications, which means if you’re concerned about stealth for reasons that aren’t leaving the state of Oregon (that would be illegal, friends), these canna caps might be your best bet. While edibles have always been a friend to discretion, capsules are foolproof camouflage.
Peanut Butter Cannabis Cookie by Forty to Five
Low-cost canna cookies in assorted flavors.
50mg THC per cookie || $9+tax
Following the present cannabis surplus in Oregon, the edibles market is seeing a price correction that could prove to be significant, and there’s no better way to feel your $9 perform like last year’s $35 than with Forty to Five’s Peanut Butter Cannabis Cookie. The potency in this product is undeniable—casual consumers should be able to comfortably derive a week’s worth of sound sleep from a single cookie.
In all seriousness, these are diminutive-yet-powerful stowaways fit for any vacation, and exactly what you’ll want when you’ve got a down night and plan to take a deeper dip into the edibles experience. For regular consumers, half a cookie is a noteworthy psychedelic journey that will make you appreciate just how far your money can go these days in Oregon.
