With the legalization of marijuana in Canada, more
people are becoming interested in consuming cannabis. Some don’t like the idea
of smoking something but are open to consuming cannabis-infused edibles like a
gummy candy or chocolate bar.
Weed edibles contain activated cannabis, either in an
oil or plant form. When consumed, the psychoactive component, THC, is broken
down by enzymes in the liver. The process of digesting and metabolizing edible
cannabis takes up to 2 hours, which is why many consumers must wait for feeling
the effects of their weed-infused snack. Typically, when someone inhales
cannabis, the effects occur within 30 minutes.
The sensational experience of edibles differs slightly
from the one experienced from smoking or vaporizing weed. Users report that
they experience a more potent body-high, along with the other effects commonly
experienced with cannabis consumption. This high can last for several hours.
There are advantages of this style of cannabis
consumption. Eating edibles allows users to better control their dosage.
Additional equipment, like a pipe or bong, is not required and unlike smoking,
edibles do not damage the lungs. Another benefit is that you can easily buy edibles online in Canada.
The best weed edibles come in a wide variety of foods
and snacks. The most popular options include cannabis-infused chocolate, baked
goods and gummy candy. Consumers can choose from cheesecake treats, s’more
bars, Firechews, Firebars, and more.
Note, cannabis edibles can be potent. Novice users
should be cautious when trying an edible for the first time as it effects every
person differently. It’s advised that you try a small dose and wait several
hours before trying more.
