Introduction to Cannabis Edibles

By LucidaClub

If you’re look­ing for a deli­cious way to enjoy cannabis, then cannabis edi­bles are what you want. They are sim­ple and dis­crete morsels that can get you high.

One of the most inter­est­ing aspects of cannabis con­sump­tion are edi­bles. Unlike smok­ing, vap­ing or using oils and tinc­tures, these cannabis based foods just seem nat­ur­al for a dai­ly rou­tine. If you’re not famil­iar with edi­bles, that’s okay. There’s plen­ty of infor­ma­tion here to help you decide if they are right for you.

What are cannabis edibles?

Edi­bles are foods made from the results of decarb­ing (decar­boxy­la­tion) of THCA, 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 22.5 mg is the best starter con­sump­tion. 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 dose that’s too strong.

Here’s an impor­tant tip to remem­ber: Since cannabis edi­bles can take a while to kick in, you can be eas­i­ly fooled into ingest­ing way too much. You can take one bite of a brown­ie, feel noth­ing after a while, then keep eat­ing. Before you know it, you’ve over­done your dosage.

How long does it take to reach euphoria?

To get to that spe­cial place, it usu­al­ly takes between 30 min­utes to an hour. I can take longer than that, depend­ing on the strength of the cannabis and dif­fer­ent fac­tors con­cern­ing each indi­vid­ual. This is why it’s so impor­tant to take it slow when con­sum­ing these foods.

The ride is long, my friend

Edi­ble highs can last from 6 – 8 hours, or longer. So, actu­al­ly, you spend most of your day in an intox­i­cat­ing state. Edi­bles are one of the vehi­cles of cannabis that are best used on week­ends or vaca­tions – these are times where you can enjoy the edi­ble high in a safe environment.

So, although they take a while to kick in, due to the actu­al­ly being digest­ed, they 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.
