Known for its small and mighty infused taffy, Cheeba Chews delivers high potency in a bite-sized package. Choose from a range of sativa, indica, hybrid, and CBD products in a variety of different sweet and fruity flavors.
What Are Cheeba Chews?
Since 2009, Cheeba Chews has been providing cannabis consumers with top-of-the-line edibles. At the time, the business was run out of CEO James Howler’s personal kitchen. The lack of consistency in edible dosages led him to create a product to overcome this industry flaw. As a licensed medical grower, he used trim to create these discreet infused candies.
Over a decade later, Cheeba Chews has expanded beyond its Colorado roots. Its infused chews, similar to a tootsie roll, can be found in today’s most competitive markets including California, Nevada, and Oklahoma. As new edible brands enter the market, Cheeba Chews remains a leader in the industry. Check out our overview of its product offerings.

While most chews contain 100 mg of THC and 10 mg per serving, serving sizes may vary by product. Pay careful attention to the product’s packaging before consuming it. Because of their small size, many consumers may make the mistake of taking too much too soon. While a couple of servings (20 mg) can work for newbies, an entire package may be needed for heavy users.
According to the brand’s guidelines, users are recommended to wait 30+ minutes for the onset of effects before taking another dose. The effects can last 2-6 hours. Ideally, you want to store the chews in a cool and dry place. When you’re ready to eat, you can place the soft taffy in the refrigerator for a minute for easier opening.
Pros & Cons
Cheeba Chews stands apart among the rest of the edible brands due to its miniature size. Its small size makes it a portable and discreet option without compromising on potency. Competitor brands offer similar serving sizes, although they tend to come in a slightly larger size. With Cheeba Chews, you can take a smaller treat and get bigger results.
There aren't too many cons to this brand. However, some users have complained about its subtle cannabis taste and inconsistent texture. As for its taste, it’s expected to feature a pungent flavor due to its cannabis oil strength. Its texture can feature some grainy solids at times, but nothing that would make it completely unpleasant to eat.
For the taffy lover and high-tolerance user, Cheeba Chews offers the right level of potency to get you where you need to be. Strict lab testing ensures each infused product is consistent and pure. In terms of strength, the chews’ small size and individual servings allow you to micro or macro-dose to meet your needs without consuming a lot of sweetness.
As for its taste, it has expanded beyond its initial offerings to include a wide range of fruity and tropical flavors, as well as infused gummies for a different consistency. In terms of cost, it’s slightly higher-priced than similar edible brands. It’s a small price to pay for reliability and flavor in an edible. All in all, it’s deservedly earned the title of “America’s Favorite Edible.”
