One of the benefits of marijuana is that it is available in a variety of forms. One of the many types of marijuana products is the edible. Marijuana edibles are food infused with marijuana oil, leading to users absorbing the marijuana into their bloodstreams. Edibles have significant advantages, but they also carry risks. Knowing what to expect – and getting advice form an experienced budmaster – is essential to ensure a safe, legal, and pleasant edible experience.
Advantages of Edibles
Unlike most other types of marijuana products, edibles are subtle due to being virtually undetectable by observation alone. In addition, edibles do not leave publicly-detectable effects such as smoke, odors, or specialized equipment. Edibles are available in a variety of forms, such as cereal bars, gummy candies, and cookies. And the risk of irritation to eyes, the throat, or lungs is practically none when eating an edible.
Potential Issues with Edibles
The effects of edibles are slow-acting, with reaction times ranging from thirty minutes to two hours. In addition, many edibles are highly potent, which can lead to unpleasant experiences or unwanted effects for novice users. Edibles can cause undesirable side effects when the user’s stomach is filled with fatty foods. The effects of edibles are longer-lasting, as opposed to marijuana products such as cigarettes and tinctures which have a short effect time. And unlike other types of marijuana products, edibles do not mix well with alcohol.
