Here are seven things you want to know first if you want to try edibles.

The Diversification of Products

As more states legalize marijuana, the number of products on the market is increasing. This means that there are more options for people who want to try edibles. Edibles come in many forms, including candy, cookies, brownies, and even gummies. There are also a variety of THC levels available, and delta 8 edibles are becoming more popular. These can be bought in medical and recreational dispensaries and with a doctor’s recommendation in some states.

On the other hand, some people who are new to edibles may be overwhelmed by the number of choices. Maybe you have a favorite taste, or you want to try a particular strain. The most popular form of edibles is cannabis-infused gummies, then brownies, cookies, candies, chocolates, and beverages.

Additionally, the type of edible you choose will also determine the duration and intensity of your high. For example, candy or chocolate edibles may take longer to kick in because they have to be digested before the THC is metabolized. However, the high from these edibles can last up to 12 hours.

On the other hand, tinctures and beverages are absorbed more quickly, so the effects will be felt within 30 minutes to an hour. The high from these edibles will generally last for four to six hours.

Start Low and Go Slow

This means that you should start with a small dose of THC, and then wait to see how it affects you before taking more. The effects of edibles can take up to two hours to kick in, so it’s important to be patient.

It’s also important to remember that everyone reacts differently to THC, so what works for one person may not work for another. This is because when you eat cannabis, it has to go through your digestive system before it gets into your bloodstream. This process takes longer than smoking or vaping because THC is absorbed differently when it’s eaten.

When you smoke or vape cannabis, the THC goes directly into your lungs and then into your bloodstream. With edibles, however,  the THC is metabolized by your liver before it enters your bloodstream. This means that the effects of edibles can be more unpredictable and can vary from person to person.

The onset time for edibles can also be affected by several factors, including your metabolism, whether you’ve eaten recently, and how much water you’ve drunk.

Find Your Dose

It’s important to find the dose that works for you. Start with a small dose, such as 5 mg of THC, and wait at least two hours to see how it affects you. If you don’t feel anything after two hours, you can take another 5 mg dose. Edibles can be very potent, so it’s important to start with a small dose and increase gradually.

You can also experiment with different types of edibles to see what you like. For example, you might want to try a gummy bear or a brownie. If you wish to make your edibles, there are several recipes available online.

On the other hand, edibles are often made with sugar and fat, which can be unhealthy if consumed in large quantities. Therefore, it’s important to find a balance that works for you.

Be Aware of the Risks

There are a few risks associated with edibles, and it’s important to be aware of them before you try them. One of the most common risks is accidental overconsumption. This can happen if you don’t know how much THC is in an edible, or if you don’t realize how long it takes for the effects to kick in.

If you accidentally overconsume, the effects can be unpleasant. You may feel anxious, paranoid, or dizzy. You may also feel like you’re going to vomit. If you experience any of these symptoms, staying calm and finding a safe place to rest is important.

It’s also important to be aware that edibles can interact with other medications. For example, if you take a blood thinner, edibles can increase the risk of bleeding. Therefore, it’s important to talk to your doctor before you try edibles.

Edibles are becoming more popular as people learn about the different ways to consume them. However, there are a few things you want to know before trying edibles for the first time, such as how to find your dose and what risks to be aware of.

Start with a small dose and increase gradually until you find the right amount for you. Be sure to read reviews and talk to your doctor before consuming edibles.
