Most Vegan Edibles Still Use Animal Gelatin. We Made Sure Ours Doesn’t!


Birch + Fog

Just like Kermit, we know it’s not easy being green. There are roughly 850,000 vegans in the country, but not nearly enough options to satisfy an array of needs. At Birch and Fog we are passionate about carrying some of the finest plant based CBD and vegan products that Canada has to offer.

We carefully curate our product catalogue to provide you with a wide selection that benefit both body and mind. Whether it be a topical or edibles, beauty and food ingredients tend to be one and the same — if they’re good for you to ingest, then they’re typically great to apply to your skin. With so many options, we want to share our favourite vegan products that are eco-friendly, free of animal ingredients, and from notable brands that don’t test on animals.

Consider these our CBD essentials for a plant-based lifestyle, or at least some greener options to try if you are ready to introduce some newer ways of wellness into your daily routine. From pain management, to skincare, to satisfying that craving, we’ve got you covered — no compromise necessary.


MOTA Gummy Bears

If you’re looking for a healthier, vegan alternative to most of the edibles out there, look no further. These gummy bears are also organic, gluten-free, and THC free. Made from a plant-based gelatin substitute from AGAR, these classic teddy-shaped gummy candies, made with all-premium ingredients, and sweetened with organic cane sugar. MOTA CBD Gummy Bears provide a consistent and reliable delivery method for cannabis ingestion. Perfect!

Faded Edibles Gummy Bear Sours

A nostalgic vegan treat that will make you feel warm and fuzzy. Faded Edibles Vegan Gummy Bear Sours are as tasty as they are cute. Each bag of candies contains 6 pieces for a total of 180mg of THC and is made using cannabis distillate so you get nothing but a sweet (but a tad bit sour) fruity taste. Lab tested, gluten free and made with all vegan ingredients, these are a great treat for newcomers and seasoned foggers alike. Share with friends or keep them all to yourself (we won’t tell!).

Mello CBD Tincture

Mello Wellness’s extraction lab creates the absolute purest organic CBD oils, and combines them with other proprietary ingredients without any animal ingredients.

LOA Skin Oil

One of our favourite (and most beautifully bottled) CBD products for wellness — LOA’s Botanical Beauty Elixir. A combination of omega 3 & 6 essential fatty acids and soothing phytonutrients, LOA’s 12 powerful botanicals work synergistically together to effectively soothe dry, problematic issues while promoting clear skin. What makes this product unique and reputable is the LOA infusion, where terpenoids and other phytonutrients are extracted into organic hemp seed oil from four unique herbs. This product is a luscious, light-weight Vegan and palm oil free moisturizer that makes a great base layer for makeup, an everyday moisturizer, or a deep conditioning treatment for hair and nails. A superstar product if we do say so ourselves.

Yoni Soak PMS & Menstrual Relief

Forget the Midol and let Yoni Soak send pain down the drain. Epsom salts are a simple mineral compound made from Magnesium and Sulfate, two important minerals containing naturally occurring healing compounds that have strong detoxifying properties. Yoni combines them with cannabis, skin nourishing oils, and therapeutic grade essential oils they are even more powerful. The magnesium additionally helps improve muscle and nerve function while promoting healthy joints and skin. Soak in a medicated bath full of skin beneficial oils and leave hair and skin feeling soothed and nourished, and get relief from the aches, pains, and cramping associated with the menstrual cycle.
