While some people may have made a batch of “hash brownies” back in the day (the 70’s), after all, it was about the only type of ‘edible’ anyone had ever heard of, today there are hundreds of cannabis edibles on the market. There is a reason there are so many edibles available on the market. Edibles are a popular and discreet way to find enjoyment from cannabis without the smell or harshness of inhaling smoke.
Cannabis edibles contain cannabinoids, (especially THC). Cannabis-infused products include baked goods like cookies and brownies, candies like gummies, chocolate bars, preserves such as jams, syrups and even salad dressings. There are also oils and beverages which contain cannabinoids for enjoyment.
The main reason most people cite for eating their cannabis in foods rather than choosing to smoke it, is they prefer not to smoke or do not enjoy smoking. After years of anti-smoking (cigarette) campaigns or having given up smoking years ago, some people feel that the idea of ‘lighting up’ to be foreign or even repulsive. Others may fear they might get hooked on the enjoyment of smoking again.
One other reason cannabis edibles are so popular is that they are easy to enjoy, portable and can be taken in such a subtle way that no one else needs know that you have discovered your own secret to happiness. Also, they taste good! Flavours can range from sweet fruit flavoured gummies and candies in lemon or cherry, to luscious chocolate, to dessert bars in just about any flavour. Craving a cookie? Yes, your favourite oatmeal chocolate chip cookie, enhanced with cannabis, is available at a licensed cannabis shop like Elevate Cannabis in the Tri City.
Cannabis edibles generally take a bit longer than smoking to take effect, but the ‘high’ can be more lasting and intense. When cannabinoids found in cannabis edibles are ingested through our gastrointestinal tract it is digested much more slowly which prolongs the experience. Edibles are limited to 10 milligrams of THC or CBD or a combination of both.
Whether you are looking to relax and unwind after a busy day at the office, or want to feel energized, cannabis edibles can offer a quick, easy solution and an alternative to smoking. Now you really can have your cake (candy, brownies, cookies) and eat it too!
