I’ve learned that it’s important to be careful about dosing when eating cannabis edibles.
The cannabinoids are absorbed through the digestive tract, which delays the onset of effects.
It can take several hours for the psychoactive effects to kick in. It can be tempting to consume more. The problem is that the effects tend to be more intensive than with other consumption methods. The budtenders at my local dispensary are very helpful and knowledgeable. I’m able to ask them for edible recommendations. The packaging is safe and secure and the labels include suggested dosing. I always adhere to the minimum dose. I make sure to wait to fully feel the effects before eating more. The dispensary includes an on-site bakery where they make their edibles fresh. The selection is incredible. They offer milk, white and dark chocolates, cookies, peanut butter cups, mints and all different flavors of gummies. They even sell cannabis-infused popcorn, granola, marinara sauce and cooking oil. The dispensary just recently added an array of cannabis-infused beverages to their menu. I’ve tried cannabis-infused lemonade, cola and cannabeer. I like that edibles are easy. I don’t need to purchase any specialized gear or have any skills. They don’t create any odors, smoke or mess, making edibles wonderfully discreet. They are great to share with friends. Edibles are available in strictly CBD options, high THC options and an equal balance of each. I can choose from indicas, sativas or hybrids that are helpful for recreational enjoyment or to treat medical ailments. Because they can be rather expensive, I always check out the weekly specials and vendor days.
