How Edibles Work
Cannabis edibles are any food products that have been infused with cannabis. This can be candies and gummies, baked goods, or even full meals. The cannabis is typically extracted into an oil or butter, which is then added to the food.
Once you eat the edible, the cannabis is metabolized by your liver and absorbed into your bloodstream through your digestive system. This process takes longer than smoking cannabis, so it can take up to two hours to feel the effects. The effects of cannabis edibles can also last longer than smoking cannabis because of the slower delivery.
Benefits of Edibles
Everyone has their reasons for choosing different consumption methods of cannabis. However, there are some key benefits to choosing edibles over smoking or vaping. Here are the main pros of edibles:
- Edibles are less harmful to your lungs. Smoking cannabis can irritate your lungs and increase your risk of respiratory problems. Edibles, on the other hand, do not have any negative effects on your lungs.
- Edibles have a longer-lasting effect. The effects of smoking cannabis typically last for 1-3 hours, while the effects of edibles can last for 6-8 hours. This can be beneficial if you are looking for a longer-lasting experience.
- Edibles are more discreet. You can consume edibles without anyone knowing, which can be beneficial if you are in a situation where you cannot smoke cannabis.
- Edibles are more consistent. The effects of edibles are more consistent than the effects of smoking cannabis. This is because the amount of THC and CBD in edibles is more accurately measured than the amount of THC and CBD in cannabis smoke.
While edibles can be a great choice for many reasons, it is important to note that there are a few drawbacks. The first drawback of edibles is that they take longer to kick in. If you are looking for quick relief, edibles may not be the best fit. Also, edibles can affect the body and mind differently because it is processed differently than smoking. It is important to be mindful of the difference in your body’s reaction to edibles vs. smoking.
Tips for Taking Edibles
Because edibles are different from smoking, there are different things to consider. Here are our best tips for taking edibles:
- Start with a low dose.
It is important to start with a low dose of edibles and wait to see how you feel before taking more. The effects of edibles can take up to 2 hours to kick in, so it is important to be patient. If you still don’t feel anything after 2 hours, then have another small amount.
- Do not eat on an empty stomach.
Eating a meal before consuming edibles can help to slow down the absorption of THC and CBD, which can help to prevent you from getting too high.
- Do not drink alcohol.
Drinking alcohol can intensify the effects of cannabis, so it is best to avoid alcohol while consuming edibles.
- Be aware of your surroundings.
It is important to be aware of your surroundings when consuming edibles, as the effects can make you feel dizzy or disoriented. It is best to consume edibles in a safe and comfortable environment.
- Do not drive or operate machinery after consuming edibles.
The effects of edibles can impair your judgment and coordination, so it is best to avoid driving or operating machinery after consuming them.
- Talk to your doctor before consuming edibles.
If you have any health conditions, it is important to talk to your doctor before consuming edibles.
