CBD gummies to introduce the benefits of edibles

Cannabis comes in many formats, from flowers and oils to capsules and candy. Edibles are an especially popular choice, especially among those who would rather not inhale. Read on for a quick rundown on this consumption method, including the benefits of edibles and why you might want to give them a shot.

Anyone who came of age before cannabis was on the table as a legal substance anywhere probably flashes back to THC-laced brownies wrapped in tinfoil when they hear the term “edible.” Oh, how times have changed. These days, edibles come in all shapes, sizes and formulations, depending on the desired outcome. Keep reading for the lowdown on edibles—what they are, how to buy and more.

What are cannabis edibles?

Most people classify edibles as food or beverage products you eat or drink. You can get cannabis in capsules, drops, etc. that you also ingest, but these formats typically aren’t categorized in the same way. You can use edibles for all of the same reasons you’d smoke cannabis—pain relief, to help with inflammation, to address stress and anxiety, and more.

What are benefits of edibles?

In addition to being a smoke-free alternative, here are some of the other advantages to edible cannabis:

· Discreet and easy to use

· Effects that tend to be more potent and longer-lasting

· Precise and consistent dosing

Word of warning: Edibles take longer to kick in (30 to 90 minutes) than inhaled cannabis, so the general rule is to go low and slow. 🐌

How do you know what edible is right for you?

We’ve got the goods on dosing edibles on, but here are some guidelines to consider.

“It’s all about the dosage,” says Dr. Blake Pearson, medical director at Pearson Health. “No matter what the product is, it’s important to know what’s in it so you can follow any guidance you’ve been given.”

Start with products with a balanced ratio. If you’re new to edibles, most experts agree that it’s best to start with a 1:1 ratio of CBD and THC.

Pay attention to the formula—not just the format. It can be easy to get sucked into fun packaging or tasty flavours, but be sure you’re choosing items that match the outcome you’re after.
