Edibles are a great alternative to smoking or vaping cannabis.
You are able to choose your favorite type of edible based on cannabis strain or food choice.
Whether you are new to cannabis, or are a long-term user, edibles are definitely worth a try. Before you give it a go,however, here are a few things you need to know.
Edibles come in all shapes and sizes
Edibles are available in an assortment of food types such as brownies, cookies, candies, and various sweet treats. With the ever-expanding edible choices, you will definitely have a few to try out, as well as additional access to newer recipes.
It is not just the food type that comes in variations. In addition to food, you can order edibles based on potency and cannabis strains. Cannabis infused edibles are professionally created with Sativa, Hybrid, and Indica strains, providing you with a high-quality product.
One of the things to note is the size of the edibles varies based on the food. For example, a gummy bear will look quite smaller than say, a brownie or cookie. This does not automatically mean you should ingest more gummy bears than cookies.
The potency within these edibles is dense, meaning a little edible goes a long way. Everyone is different, so it will take some time to determine what amount of edible works best for you.
Edibles come with their own rulebook
As mentioned, edibles have a different effect on people. The effect will also differ for you personally in comparison to inhaling or vaping. Do not assume that these will have the same effect.
Why this is different is because after ingesting an edible, it actually goes through your body, rather than straight to only your lungs. There are more steps if you will for your body to process an edible, requiring digesting, absorbing, and metabolizing.
Everyone processes food differently, which means everyone will process edibles differently. It may take over an hour for the cannabis to kick in. Do not grow impatient when you do not feel anything right away. The most dangerous thing you can do, is continue to eat the marijuana
If you do so, you will go from feeling normal to being the paranoid, chaotic person in the room screaming about the tiger behind the couch.
The other thing to look out for is where you store the edibles. Marijuana on its own is rather noticeable, while edibles look just like normal food. Do not let an accident happen in your house where someone accidentally eats your brownie. You will be out an edible, and someone will be
overly relaxed without any warning.
Medical marijuana, of course, works great for back pain, anxiety, or other pain relief. If you need a more discrete product to use for your relief, are tired of smoking, or just curious about alternative options, cannabis infused edibles are just what you need!
