Cannabis-infused edibles are food or drinks with cannabinoids (like THC or CBD) from cannabis. They offer a discreet way to consume and feel the effects. Here’s what they are:
Preparation: Edibles are made by mixing cannabis extracts with ingredients like butter, oil, or sugar after heating the cannabis to activate the cannabinoids. The amount of cannabinoids can vary, so follow the recommended serving size.
Types: Edibles come in many forms, like brownies, gummies, teas, and more. You can choose what suits your taste and needs.
Effects: Edibles take longer to work than smoking. It can take 30 minutes to a few hours because your liver processes the cannabinoids first. Effects also last longer.
Unique Effects: Edibles can feel stronger and last longer because THC turns into a more potent form. Start with a small dose, especially if you’re new to cannabis.
Labeling: In legal areas, edibles must have clear labels showing how much cannabinoids are in each serving and the recommended serving size. This helps you control your dose.
