Looking to dabble into edibles? Curious if edibles may be your preferred method of cannabis consumption? Here is everything you need to know about edibles.
Typically, when you hear about edibles you commonly think of brownies or gummies. But edibles have come a far way.
What are the differences between normal methods?
The main differences between edibles and other methods of cannabis use, is how the body processes it. With edibles it is digested through your digestive tract, which takes a while to be absorbed through the blood stream and travel to the brain. The effects could take anywhere from 30 minutes to 4+ hours. The intensity and longevity of the effects depend on many factors, what you have eaten prior, your weight, and your metabolism.
Pros & Cons
One major con for edibles is overconsumption. Just as you see in many movies/tv shows, a character will take an edible and feel no effects, in which they take way to many, which the effects hit them hard all at once. This can and does happen frequently when you have limited knowledge of edibles (good thing your here!). It is important to start small and slow, especially when trying a new product. Wait at least 2 hours before consuming more.
A pro is that the effects last longer and can be stronger (12 hours or more) then other cannabis consumption methods (6 hours or more). As well, it is an alternative to smoke free consumption, which can be better for your lung health.
Where Do I Start?
If you are a beginner, it is important again to start slow and small. Read the labels and start with a low THC and higher CBD ratio. Then once you build your tolerance, feel free to consume more or go for a higher ratio once you have discovered your preferences.
