Take advantage of this green rush!

Excited about Thailand’s progressive moves towards cannabis legalisation but unsure of where to start with the wealth of products that have popped up in the last two years? We’ve weeded out the good from the bad to give you our curated list of locally-made cannabis-based products in Bangkok that you can have delivered to your home.
KANOM SIAM’S PANDAN SWEET MELT (pictured above)
If you’re looking for a CBD dessert that’s quintessentially Thai, look no further than Kanom Siam’s pandan-flavoured cannabis desserts. Shaped into pandan leaves and coloured an eye-catching mint green, the desserts can be found at any of Kanom Siam’s branches in malls such as Siam Paragon and EmQuartier, and are made fresh from strains that the brand has carefully selected and harvested themselves.
PIZZA COMPANY’S CRAZY HAPPY PIZZA
Released in November of last year, the Crazy happy pizza (THB 499) was a phenomenon among Bangkokians, especially as it marked the first foray of one of Thailand’s most well-established pizza franchises into cannabis-based products. Tom-yum flavoured and featuring a deep-fried cannabis leaf on top, the pizza is sure to pack a punch in more ways than one (without, the brand was careful to note, actually getting you high).

WHOLEWEED HOUSE’S FUDGE CHOCOLATE BROWNIES
An online bakery with ‘happy, delicious, worry-free’ products, Wholeweed House specialises in cannabis-infused drinks and nibbles. Their Fudge chocolate brownies (THB 100 for 2 pieces), however, are classic and gooey in the best way, and you can pair them with one of their many intriguing CBD-infused signature drinks with WholeWeed syrup.

ICHITAN’S GREEN LAB DRINKS
7-Eleven fans, this one’s for you! The renowned Ichitan Group is selling their Ichitan green lab tea in convenience stores across the city, so make sure to pop by your corner store and try this terpene (natural plant essential oil) product. The drinks come in two flavours, green tea lemon, and chamomile for those who want an extra mellow experience. Facebook: @IchitanGreenLabOfficial
420 CANNABIS BAR’S THE ORIGINAL TEA
Touted as the ‘first cannabis bar in Thailand,’ 420 Cannabis Bar is known among the cannabis scene as a relaxed yet groovy haunt where you can get anything from slow-brewed cannabis teas to moon-rock shaped cheese balls. However, we’d recommend checking out their signature cannabis tea, aptly named The Original, with a formulation from Canada that launched them to popularity. Instagram: @420cannabisbar.bkk
DENTISTE’S TERPENE SPRAY
Thailand’s famed Dentiste toothpaste brand, known for their minty aftertaste and soothing properties on sensitive gums, have released a mouth spray that uses all-natural ingredients, including cannabis. Touted to reduce inflammation and treat throat aches, spritz this on after a meal to soothe those pesky acid-reflux symptoms (we can relate). www.dentiste-oralcare.com
VERDAY SKIN DAILY DOSE SERUM
CBD has plenty of anti-oxidant properties, an important consideration in a city smothered with PM 2.5 particles. The CBD infused in the Verday skin serum (THB 470) will help fight off free radicals, while its Vitamin C and green tea will even your skin tone, improve collagen production, and reduce wrinkles. https://bloom.express
TROPICAL BLOOM’S THAI STCK
What is Thailand without the omnipresent ya dom sticks? Stay relaxed throughout the day with the Thai stck produced by Thailand’s premier ya dom company, Tropical Bloom. FDA-certified, the stick comes in three flavours, Afghan kush, Sour diesel and OG kush, and will only set you back THB 89.
NIRVANA HIGH SOJU
If you enjoy a drink (or four) of soju, make sure to check out Nirvana High Soju, which will give you all the fruity goodness of a regular soju drink, but with the “full therapeutic effects of CBD.” Available in four flavours, the set comes in a beautiful glass box and is touted to give you no hangovers, which in itself seems definitely worth a try!

VEGIVORE 26 X CHANABIS’ CANNABIS KOMBUCHA
Take your gut health to the next level with this collaboration between Vegivore 26, a local artisanal kombucha brand, and cannabis tea brand, Chanabis. Marrying kombucha’s ability to relieve a host of gut issues with CBD’s anti-inflammatory properties, this drink is purported to keep you calm and happy throughout the day, and comes in two delicious blends, Thong Lor breakfast and Melbourne haze.
