Oh, how we love edibles. Cannabis edibles have come a long way in the past few years and we couldn’t be more pleased with how mainstream they’ve become. If you’re interested in learning a few things about edibles that you may not have known, read on!
You Won’t Feel The High Immediately
Most people are used to lighting up and feeling an immediate high. This is not the case with edibles. The THC in edibles takes a longer time to enter your bloodstream, so you won’t feel the effects for up to 40 minutes. This is why we always recommend eating a small amount first and waiting to see how you feel before eating more.
2. Not All Edibles Are Created Equal
Edibles come in all kinds of variations of MG’s ranging from 5mg – over 1000mg. So there is more to choosing the right edible than just going for what looks delicious. Be sure to read the THC mg carefully so you don’t over do it, or under do it.
3. Edibles Can Be Infused In Many Different Ways
Just how does the THC get into the edible? Well, there are a few different ways this can happen. The first is by adding cannabutter, which is cannabis infused butter. This is a popular method when making baked goods such as brownies or cookies, where butter is a staple ingredient. Edibles can also be infused with THC oil, and this is more common method for gummies or taffies.
4. Edibles Can Produce A Different High Than Flowers
If you are new to edibles, the high that they produce is much different than that of smoking flowers. The high may be more intense and more in the body. Keep in mind, everyone’s high is different and this may not be the case for everyone.
5. You Can’t Just Add Cannabis Flower To A Brownie And Make an Edible
As we mentioned earlier, most brownie edibles are made with cannabutter. Some people think that adding cannabis flower into brownie mix will produce weed brownies. Unfortunately this is not the case. So if you were planning on trying this, sorry to break the news. The flower has to be cooked in a special way which causes the THC to activate.
