Different Types of Edibles

The diversity of marijuana edibles are quickly expanding, allowing you to infuse anything that calls for butter or oil, such as cookies, brownies, bread, and much more! Often may prefer to use tinctures to feel the onsets quicker. The key to ingesting edibles is to be aware of your dosing. It’s important to start with caution with a low dose and being patient, as edibles take longer to kick in.

Using Medicinal Edibles for Treatment

Edibles are a great option for those who are looking to gain the benefits of medical marijuana without inhaling smoke into their lungs. Essentially, edibles are food items that are made with cannabis flower or concentrates. When consuming THC through food, the properties are then absorbed through the digestive system which may take longer to feel the effects. The effects may onset as quickly as 45 minutes or can take up to 3 hours, where the potency effects will gradually increase.

How to Find the Right Dose

When finding the right dosage for your body, it’s important to speak with your trusted medical marijuana caregiver at your local dispensary. It’s always recommended to start a low dose for those new to medical marijuana, typically beginning at 1mg, however it’s always best to listen to your dispensary. The expert staff will help you start with the correct dosage and guide you in the right direction.
