Edibles are a user-friendly way to consume cannabis for new and experienced medical marijuana patients. But, you’ve probably heard at least one unfortunate story of someone getting too high from eating marijuana edibles. These days, this is easy to avoid with low-dose edibles and cannabidiol (CBD).
Why Choose Marijuana Edibles
There are so many different ways to consume cannabis. Why do some patients choose marijuana edibles over flower? Aside from being smoke-free, the effects of cannabis edibles are more potent and longer-lasting than smoking or vaping. For this reason, many patients choose edibles to treat insomnia, chronic pain, and side effects from severe illnesses like cancer.
It takes about one to two hours to feel the effects of edibles because the Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is digested and processed by the liver. Through this process, THC is turned into 11-Hyrdorxy-THC, which has a more psychoactive effect.
Edibles – Dose Low and Go Slow
To have a positive experience with marijuana edibles, you need correct dosing and patience. A starting dose is considered 2.5 to 5 milligrams (mg) of THC. After eating an edible, it’s essential to wait at least two hours before consuming more. The most common mistake is to eat more too soon and then it is too late to reverse a bad experience.
Types of Marijuana Edibles
You can make almost any food into a marijuana edible with infused cannabutter. Traditionally, weed was baked into desserts like brownies and cookies. These days, gummies are the most popular edible because they’re portable, easy to dose, and come in different varieties and flavors.
