How to consume edibles

How to consume edibles! Edibles are any food or drink that contain cannabinoids, namely THC, the main intoxicating compound in cannabis that gets you high. They can also contain CBD, a cannabis compound that does not get you high but offers medical benefits, as well as more niche cannabinoids like CBN, CBG, and THCV, all of which contain unique medicinal and recreational benefits.

Cannabis is lipid soluble and does not bind to water, so it’s usually infused into a fat-soluble medium, such as butter or oil (this is called an infusion). Examples of infusions include cannabutter, cannabis coconut oil, cannabis cooking oil, and more.

A cannabis infusion can then be used to make food, such as baked goods like brownies, cookies, salad dressings, soup broths, and more. Weed can also be infused with alcohol and made into a tincture, as well as one of the most popular commercial edibles, gummies.

Edibles have a reputation as one of the most potent forms of cannabis; this is because when we consume them, our digestive systems and livers metabolize the THC into a more potent form, called, 11-hydroxy-THC, which also lasts significantly longer than a smoke sesh, vape hit, or dab. So, be careful when consuming them—we’ve all known someone who has eaten too many edibles and had an unpleasant evening.

We always recommend new consumers and seasoned stoners How to consume edibles alike “start low and go slow” when consuming edibles—take a little at first to determine potency, and wait until effects kick in before taking more.
