Here is how to choose the best edible for you! There are a huge variety of cannabis infused edibles on the market, so here are some tips to choose the right one for you! If you’re looking for ways to take in marijuana without smoking it, then you can choose between vaporizers, sprays and tinctures, edibles, pills and topical waxes. The most popular way to take medical marijuana is through edibles.
Edibles are just regular food that are infused with cannabis. They are usually cooked with cannabis butter or pure THC concentrate. Each edible on the market has a different concentration of THC, some as low as 10 mg to as high as 300 mg. Most edibles will list how many grams of THC are in each edible on the packaging.
Cannabis edibles come in many shapes and sizes. Cookies, brownies, hard candies, chocolate bars, gummies and more are just a few kinds that make up the ever growing edible offerings. Unlike smoking marijuana that travels through the lungs, edibles on the other hand, go straight into the gastrointestinal tract. This means that while it will take longer to feel the effects of the cannabis product, there will be an increase the duration of the high as well.
Edibles also differ on how much marijuana it contains. You should be wary off what type of food you pick because some of them contain multiple servings while others are packaged as a single serving. Foods that are induced with marijuana usually take longer for a person to feel its effects, typically ranging from 30 minutes to an hour. Furthermore, depending on the dosage, the edible can last around 4-12 hours.
States who have legalized medical marijuana require edible manufacturers to include on their package the total amount of THC and the number of servings on their products. For those people who are just starting out on edibles, it’s important that you start small which is experts suggest that a good dose is 5 milligrams. I recommend taking at least an hour for you to feel its effects in order to find out how it affects you.
Overdosing on foods infused with edibles could result in a lack of coordination, hallucinations, and paranoia. If you happen to go overboard, remember to always stay calm, eat a lot of food and drink a lot of water. Edibles are quickly becoming one of the preferred methods in the cannabis industry and these are just a few reasons why. Check out some of the edible brands in our vendor section on weedter.com!
