Interview with Cannabis Edibles Company, Sneeky Snacks:
Sneeky Snacks was founded in 2015 by partners Alisha and Keegan in Washington, D.C. Our mission is to create innovative ways for people to consume cannabis in a safe and welcoming way. We are committed to providing our consumers with quality edibles by testing the consistency of THC levels and delivering the highest level of food safety.
Why did you decide to get into the edibles business?
I actually stumbled my way into the edibles business. I started as a consumer and I got tired of eating the same desserts that other companies were offering such as cereal bars and brownies. I then began to do my own research and found out that there are many food items that can be created and I just started to create my own dishes and desserts.
Where did you learn to make all of your edibles?
I was already a good cook so that helped but my baking skills were not up to par so I started buying different cookbooks and magazines, and Youtube.
What is your signature dish or a favorite recipe you like to make?
My favorite recipe is the cream cheese brownie. It’s so rich in flavor and the cream cheese adds the perfect balance.
What kind of products do you offer? Which one is the most popular with your customers?
We offer cupcakes, brownies, cookies, cakes, pies, and sugar. Our canna-sugar is the most popular, I think because of the fact that you can use as much or as little as you like. I think people like the idea of being able to self-dose.
What is your favorite strain to bake with?
Any of OG strain but my favorite would have to be SFV OG.
Where does your inspiration come from?
My son gives me all of the inspiration I could ever need. If it wasn’t for him there would be no Sneeky Snacks.
What are some of the essential ingredients that you couldn’t live without?
Cannabis for sure, then I would have to say chocolate and eggs.
What are your goals for the next 2 years with this business?
My goals for the next two years are to have our canna-sugars displayed in different dispensaries, to experiment and have CBD products, to expand to the west coast and be more active in the cannabis industry.
Do you have any advice or tips for others who are looking to start their own edibles company?
I would advise people to never give up. Nothing happens overnight, you have to put in the work and actually get the job done. If you believe that this is the path you would like to take keep going, keep pushing forward. Always set goals and a time frame for your business and accomplish them. Lastly, never get comfortable, if you feel that you are, that means there is more work to be done.
Sneeky Snacks is just one of the many edibles companies around the world playing an important role in changing the stigma surrounding the use of cannabis, one delicious edible at a time.
