Medical Marijuana Edibles– What to Know

There are many ways to consume medical marijuana from flower and vapes to tinctures and oils. Edibles have been growing in popularity for many years, and there’s a reason why! Edibles are a great option for many people.

Some people have reservations about marijuana because they do not want to smoke or vape it, and edibles provide an alternative route to putting smoke in your lungs. If you think edibles may be right for you, here are some things to consider before giving them a try:

How Long Do Edible Effects Last?

The effects of cannabis when it is consumed in edible form tend to last longer than any other delivery method. This is because it takes your body time to absorb THC from edibles. The effects can last up to 12+ hours.

For this reason, you should clear your schedule when you plan to take an edible. Make sure you do not have prior engagements, especially that involve you driving. You should also take the edible in a private place where you feel comfortable and safe doing so.

Read the Label

There are so many different kinds of edibles, and the amount of THC they contain can vary significantly. If you have never tried cannabis or if it is your first time taking an edible, you should start with 2.5mg of THC.

When In Doubt…Wait!

As previously mentioned, edibles can take a while to kick in, and sometimes even hours. If you wait 30 minutes and do not feel anything, wait a bit longer to take more. You can always take more later, but you cannot undo it if you take more than you should.

Stronger Effects

It depends on the person, but many people say that the effects of edibles are stronger than other delivery methods such as smoking or vaping. This is because your liver turns the THC into a stronger form.
