Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) gummies are also known as weed gummies or marijuana gummies, they are edible cannabis products that are infused with THC, the psychoactive ingredient in marijuana. THC gummies can often look just like regular candy, making them a tempting snack for kids. Primary and secondary parents must be always cautious to ensure that children do not have access to these gummies.
