What are cannabis edibles?
An edible can be any type of food infused with cannabinoids. Cannabis edibles can come in many different forms! Most commonly you can find cannabis-infused brownies, cookies, chocolate bars, gummies, drinks, and other infused snacks and dishes. Any recipe that includes butter or oil can be easily infused with cannabis oil.
Edibles are increasingly popular because they are discreet, fun, tasty and easier to use. Although they may not be the first choice for those new to cannabis as it can be a trick to find the best dosage for you, cannabis edibles are great for consumers who don’t like smoking.
What are the different types of cannabis edibles?
As already said, cannabis edibles are available for purchase in many different forms of cannabis-infused foods and drinks, including but not limited to the following:
- Chocolate Bars
Tinctures are also commonly taken orally and used on their own added to food or drink items so that consumers can customize their dosage.
Having such a variety of products to choose from can turn visiting a dispensary to buy some into quite an adventure in itself! Should you buy the so much popular brownies or the gummies?

How long do edibles take to take effect?
Edible cannabis products are administered orally and the consumer should always start low and go slow. It can take as little as 20 minutes or as long as 3 hours to start to feel the effects of edibles and duration can last between 3 to 6 hours since potency gradually increases with digestion.
This is why we cannot emphasize enough that edibles, in general, are not for people who are new to cannabis or for those who are a bit anxious to “feel something” and go over the suggested dose just because the edible takes a bit longer to kick in.
How potent are edibles?
A cannabis edible potency is measured differently than the potency of cannabis flower. Instead of the percentage of cannabinoid strength, the potency is indicated by the number of milligrams of cannabinoids in the edible product. Typically the labeling will have both the amount of THC and CBD in milligrams per serving, as well as the total amount in the whole product.
How do edibles work?
Cannabinoids in edibles are digested and are processed differently than cannabinoids that are inhaled. When ingested the cannabinoids enter the bloodstream through the stomach and liver, this tends to delay the onset of the effects of the edible but extends their longevity and will also increase the potency of the cannabis.
Cannabis edibles are, therefore, more potent than smokable cannabis and users looking for a more intense and long-lasting experience usually prefer them over vapes and cannabis cigarettes.
How are edibles made?
There’s no unique or correct way to make edibles. In fact, search the web for “how to make cannabutter at home” or “homemade cannabis brownies” and you’ll discover that there are more than one recipe to follow. That being said, the commonality between almost all cannabis-infused edibles you can find at our dispensary is that they are made with highly concentrated cannabis, usually with cannabis-infused oil or cannabis-infused butter replacing the regular version. Some edibles may also be made with a preactivated oil or RSO.
Who should buy cannabis edibles?
Edibles like cannabis-infused food and drinks are perfect for the consumer who is new to cannabis, those with health concerns over smoking and inhaling the product or secondhand smoke, people who do not enjoy the smell of cannabis, and those who prefer a more discreet way to consume cannabis. Edibles are also an easy, convenient product for those with medical conditions that may make it hard to use other methods to consume cannabis like smoking accessories or have trouble measuring out the right dosage with a tincture.
Why should you buy edibles?
If you are looking for a more potent product, you should buy edibles because they can produce a stronger effect than when smoking cannabis. Cannabis-infused edibles are also perfect for discreetly consuming your cannabis and if you are sensitive to the smell of cannabis or its smoke you can eliminate that when consuming an edible version.
