Cannabis Edibles and Drinks

What are cannabis edibles?

Discrete, delicious, and easy to use, cannabis-infused edibles and drinks are an excellent way to enjoy the potential wellness benefits of cannabis.

Traditionally crafted by infusing cannabis into oil or butter used in baking, cannabis edibles now use THC and CBD concentrates to add a powerful kick to candies, sodas, baked goods, and even chips.

Cannabis Edibles Benefits

Thinking of giving cannabis edibles a try? Here are some benefits to expect:

  • Potent, long-lasting relief
  • Discreet consumption experience that produces no vapor or smoke
  • A variety of wellness benefits
  • Several types and flavors to satisfy every taste bud

What should you know before consuming THC edibles?

Start Low

Keep dosage low, eating a single serving at a time to determine optimal consumption levels for your wellness needs.

Go Slow

Don’t expect immediate results from your first dose. Some edibles offer an onset time of 5–15 minutes, but most take between 30 minutes and 3 hours to kick in.

Don't Mix

Edibles pack a powerful punch! Don’t be tempted to mix them with alcohol or other substances.

Practice Safe Storage

Keep your edibles in their original packaging, or move them to a childproof container to keep them out of the reach of children, animals, and any other unwitting consumers.

Cannabis edibles are tasty, effective wellness tools that pack a heavy punch. But how does the relief actually work?

When you consume an edible, your body digests, processes, metabolizes, and absorbs the cannabinoids that give cannabis its psychoactive effect.

Edibles are often more powerful than other cannabis consumption methods, as the cannabinoids are absorbed directly into your bloodstream.

Consumers can expect the effects to come on slow and steady and linger for hours, making edibles an ideal pain management tool and helpful for restful sleep. Depending on the type and intensity of your edible of choice, onset can take anywhere from 5 minutes to 3 hours, and effects can linger for 3–6 hours.

Effects can vary from person to person—even from session to session—changing based on how empty your stomach is, your mood, and a slew of other factors. We always recommend new consumers start low and go slow, beginning with micro-doses in the range of 2.5 to 5mg.

An Alternative to Smoking Cannabis

Edible cannabis is tasty, but that’s not the only reason many medical patients prefer it to smoking or vaping.

When you opt for edibles, your body can enjoy the wellness benefits of THC without smoking or vaping. With edibles, THC is effectively absorbed by your body through the stomach, liver, and mouth without the need for inhalation.

Eating vs. Smoking

The primary distinction between smoking or vaping cannabis and consuming edibles is the absorption rate for the various cannabinoid compounds like THC and CBD.

When you consume edibles, your body absorbs more cannabinoids, so consuming 10mg of THC edibles will feel more powerful than the same 10mg of THC delivered via inhalation.

This is why it’s so important to start low and go slow when it comes to edibles. Make sure to wait at least two hours before increasing your dose.

Staying Smoke Free

Smoking anything, even cannabis, can cause potential damage to your lungs. Opting for edibles is a great way to enjoy the wellness benefits of cannabis flower while staying smoke free.
