Though smoking is still the most popular way of consuming cannabis, edibles are quickly being a popular way to intake weed. Traditionally “funny” brownies are among one of the most popular marijuana infused foods, however, any food product can be infused with cannabis. The need to make your own goodies is something of the past, as you can now purchase from a retailer or buy edibles online from an online marijuana dispensary.
As the effects of smoking weed is almost immediate, the results of edibles may take from one to three hours to become apparent as food is absorbed into the bloodstream through the liver. As it takes longer, there is a greater chance of consuming more than the intended amount. Finding the right dose is different for everyone so it is recommended you start with a small dose. The typical dose is 10mg, however, those new to cannabis or with a low tolerance should start with 5mg. A 5mg dose should give you noticeable pain relief or sensation of euphoria combined with impairment of coordination and perception. Your retail store or online marijuana dispensary should be able to provide guidance when you buy edibles online.
If you are new to edibles, tried one and do not feel anything after an hour, try eating a snack to turn on your digestion function. Some people new to cannabis may not feel anything their first few instances but rather than increasing the dosage right away, they should wait 8 to 24 hours, try the same dosage again and wait the prescribed number of hours and try this process a couple of more times before increasing their intake. If you have consumed too much and feel uneasy, remember, a cannabis overdose is not fatal. Do not panic and find a safe, comfortable place to come down and drink plenty of water. Again, your retail store or online marijuana dispensary should be able to provide guidance when you buy edibles online.
Commercial cannabis edibles from a retail store or online dispensary in Canada always have their products clearly labelled so there are no surprises when you buy edibles online. Those who micro-dose will find prepackaged edibles to be a great way of consumption as not only are the goods pre-measured but ingesting a “candy” is very discreet.
Whether you make your own, purchase from a retailer or buy edibles online from an online marijuana dispensary, great care must be taken when consuming as the effects of ingesting weed take longer to manifest than inhaling smoke or vapour. Lack of an immediate result may prompt you to ingest more than you should, leading to an uncomfortable few hours. Restraint from enjoying edibles as a typical food item in itself is something that should also be observed as these are not your regular cakes, cookies or candies. With the popularity of edibles in cannabis culture today, it should not be hard to find something to your liking at your local retailer or when you buy edibles online from an online marijuana dispensary.
