So many are now aware medicinal benefits of edible marijuana and how it has been used to treat various ailments throughout history. In other words they are becoming more useful in natural treatment in clinical settings.
But we shouldn’t be carried away by the high of marijuana edibles and thats how we will learn how to consume cannabis edibles, what actually they ? how long they take to kick in?
WHAT ARE EDIBLES?
Edibles are food products infused with marijuana. Though smoking marijuana is the most prevalent method of consumption, eating weed edibles is quickly becoming a popular way to consume the drug. This has happened in the COVID-19 earer and most people are embracing it while we look for more insights on edibles as a medicine.
Everyone’s body responds to edibles differently but from many testimonies it’s clear the pros of it are irresistable. It was reported last year 2020 during the pandermic by New York times magazine that edibles now sell well in the cannabis market. Edibles and smoked weed affects the mind in different ways because they are processed differently in the body.
HOW LONG DO EDIBLES LAST?
Compared to smoking and vaping edibles take long to kick in as like conversely, they take long time to fade out. Hence an average dose of weed edible will last you 6 hours or more and will varies depending on few factors, such as dosage, metabolism, and tolerance levels. During this period of high, you mostly get the strongest effects occuring at about 3 hrs after eating. Once you consume a large dose of very potent THC levels may cause a stronger longer high. I will say go with 2mg and best find your dose in time.Everybody is not thesame but we must standardize.
Take note that CBD-only weed edibles are not psychoactive. They don’t cause the “high” typically associated with THC-infused edibles.
HOW TO CONSUME CANNABIS EDIBLES SAFELY AND LEGALLY
It is highly recommended that newbies to edibles start with no more than a 2.5 milligram dose of THC—lower than the amount in many packaged confections—and work up from there. Nethertheless, if you are an old consumer of cannabis you can take from 2.5 mg – 10 mg dose of THC a day.
Some companies in california like legalonlinecannabisdispensary.com are even producing purpose-built sublingual cannabis strips. How cannabis affects you is dependent on the method of delivery which are orally or sublinglually.
