Cannabis Edibles

Cannabis edibles are a tasty alternative for those who prefer not to smoke marijuana. Cannabis edibles are foods and drinks that have been infused with cannabis. They typically result in a longer, more intense high than traditional cannabis flower. This option of cannabis consumption is great for beginners or those who don’t like to or aren’t able to inhale cannabis.

How Are Cannabis Edibles Made?

When baked products are made, THC is infused into either canna-butter or canna-oil. Canna-butter is the replacement for regular butter, and the canna-oil can be mixed with any type of cooking oil to make cannabis edibles. For liquid cannabis edibles, drops of cannabis extracts are typically put into the drinks.

How Does the Body Process Cannabis Edibles?

Consuming edibles typically have a delayed reaction when compared to inhaling cannabis. Reactions usually take 30 to 90 minutes to set in. Users must abide by a waiting period to allow the effects of the edibles to kick in rather than consuming more since they don’t feel the immediate sensation they may be used to from smoking cannabis. Since the effects of edibles are both potent and delayed, it’s important not to consume more than the recommended amount.

Edibles must be digested for the effects to kick in, making the process take longer than smoking or inhaling. Once these effects kick in, they tend to be much stronger and last longer than other cannabis experiences. The duration of user experience can vary depending on body weight, metabolism, tolerance, THC concentration of the product, and how much of the edible was consumed.

Types of Cannabis Edibles

There are many different types of marijuana edibles, and they include:

  • Baked Goods – Baked goods make up the most popular segment of cannabis edibles. These include cookies, brownies, pancakes, muffins, and more.
  • Gummies and Chews – These sweet, chewy products come in various shapes and sizes. Dosages may vary regarding edibles, so it’s important to be careful about your specific dosage.
  • Mints and Hard Candies – Mint and hard candy edibles resemble regular mints and hard candies. However, they’re infused with THC distillate. Most hard candy marijuana edibles are designed to be absorbed through the cheek wall or underneath the tongue. This typically results in a much faster effect than oral edibles with a lower intensity.
  • Chocolate – Chocolate cannabis edibles provide chocolate lovers with an option to enjoy their favorite sweet treat while also experiencing the psychoactive effects of marijuana.
  • Drinks and Drink Mixes – When it comes to cannabis-infused drinks and drink mixes, you can find anything from seltzers to teas to juices.
  • Cooking and Baking Oils – This might be the perfect edible for you if you do a lot of cooking and baking at home. You can use it just like you would normal cooking or baking oil.
  • Savory Snacks – These come in various types, such as pretzels, biscuits, pizza, barbeque sauces, popcorn, potato chips, crackers, peanut butter, and more.
