Medical Marijuana Edibles– What to Know

There are many ways to consume cannabis, from flower to vapes and tinctures to creams…but have you tried edibles? Edibles are a great way to consume marijuana, and they are much better for your health than smoking or vaping your medicine.

If you are experienced with cannabis, you may have already tried edibles. But if not, there are some important things to consider when you take an edible, including dosage, potency, and how long the effects can last.

When you eat an edible with THC, the effects tend to be stronger and last much longer than other consumption methods. The effects can last 3-6 hours, or sometimes even longer. Residual effects can even last up to 48 hours.

Here are some things to consider when considering whether to try a cannabis edible:

It Takes Time

The effects of edibles are stronger and last longer than other consumption methods, but they also are known to take much longer to kick in. Many people will take an edible and feel nothing, so they take more.

This is a mistake, because it can take hours for an edible to kick in. It depends on many factors, such as your weight, when you last ate, dosage, and more. When you take an edible, it is best to wait a couple of hours before taking any more if you are not feeling the desired effect.

Clear Your Schedule

If you are planning to take an edible, it is best to make sure you do not have any commitments or obligations for that day. As previously mentioned, the effects of edibles can be much stronger than that of flower or vapes, for example, so it is best to give yourself time to relax.

If it is your first time taking an edible, you should choose a weekend where you have as much time to relax as possible. And you definitely want to make sure that you will not have to drive.
