One of our favorite forms of cannabis consumption is the edible. Unlike smoking, vaping or using oils and tinctures, these cannabis-based foods just seem natural for a daily routine. If you want to know even more about edibles, that’s great! There’s plenty of information here to help you decide if they are right for you.
Edibles are foods made from the results of decarbing (decarboxylation) of THCA. Basically, it’s about using carbon dioxide to change THCA into THC. This same process of decarbing happens naturally when flowers age as well. Extracts of cannabis are mixed with cooking ingredients to create edibles you know and enjoy.
Most experts say that 2−2.5 mg is the best choice when you want a light effect. Although others claim that 10 mg is not that powerful. I think sticking with the experts in this case is best, and preserves the reputation of a quality product. After all, you wouldn’t want to give up on edibles because of a dose that’s too strong.
Here’s an important tip to remember: Since cannabis edibles may take a while to kick in, you could be easily fooled into ingesting way too much. You may find yourself taking one bite of a brownie, feel nothing at first, then keep eating. Before you know it, you may be over the rainbow. We believe a slow consistent climb is more comforting and fun.
To get to that special place, it usually takes between 30 minutes to an hour. It may take longer than that, depending on the strength of the cannabis and different factors concerning each individual. Taking it slow when consuming these foods may be good idea.
Edible fun experiences may last from 6 – 8 hours, or longer. So, actually, you might spend most of your day in an exuberant state. Edibles are one of the vehicles of cannabis that are best used on weekends or vacations – these are times where you may enjoy the edible after-effects in a safe environment.
So, although they take a while to kick in, due to actually being digested, they may also last much longer than smoking or vaping. Think about it this way, any strong aspects of the marijuana plant are absorbed into the body through digestion, similar to other nutrients and vitamins.
