marijuana edibles are foods and beverages infused with marijuana so through cannabis edibles. Though they’ve risen in popularity recently, edibles aren’t exactly new. There’s a long history of humans incorporating cannabis into their diets, ranging from traditional drinks in India to the humble pot brownie in the US. Now, thanks to advances in infusion methods, you can find a wide selection of cannabis-infused baked goods, gummies, seasoning packets, cooking oil, chocolates, breath strips, mints, sodas, and countless other items.
The uses of marijuana edible
The benefit of consuming cannabis-infused edibles is the ability to feel the effects of marijuana without having to smoke flower or vaporize concentrates. Consuming is easy and intuitive — we all know how to eat and drink.
What’s not easy or intuitive about edibles is the fact it can take anywhere from 30 minutes to two hours for the effects to kick in. Because the cannabis edibles have to go through your digestive system before entering your bloodstream, the effects may take hours to set in and the strength of effects gradually builds to a peak. The duration of your high can then last anywhere from a couple of hours to a full day depending on how much you consume.
