Everywhere you turn, someone is talking about edibles. Maybe you’re new to the cannabis world or simply haven’t been interested enough in edibles to learn how they affect you. We are here to provide what you need to know about edibles and the benefits enjoyed by cannabis consumers who snack on them. Perhaps we can provide the inspiration needed to finally break through to the other side, try edibles, and find your new favorite snack! What are Edibles? Edibles are food products, typically sweet, baked goods, or a drink, infused with cannabis or cannabinoids, designed to be eaten. After eating or drinking the edible, users feel the same effects as brought on by inhaling or smoking cannabis or related products. Until a few years ago, cannabis consumers had a few options for consuming, all of which involved lighting a flower cannabis and inhaling it, whether through a rolled joint, a blunt, a bong, or a pipe. This was great and all but users wanted more options. Edibles provide an alternative option to smoking cannabis and cannabinoid products. No matter what your sweet tooth craves, edibles likely offer a few goodies to tempt your tastebuds. You’ll find delicious chocolate chip cookies and brownies, delicious gummies, and everything sweet in between. Every edible product contains a different amount of THC, making dosing much easier. It is easy to feel the desired effects without overindulging when consuming edibles. Of course, factors such as tolerance level, weight, and prior food consumption affect the results of edibles. Edibles have become popular with cannabis consumers across the world. Many people prefer to eat a cookie or drink a coffee versus smoking a joint or using concentrates these days. The popularity of edibles has increased product lines, with manufacturers now offering a full line of treats. Reasons Why You’ll Love Edibles: A Look at the Benefits But, what’s all the fuss over edibles and why do so many people prefer them over traditional cannabis products? Let’s take a look at some of the most common reasons why edibles are one of the most popular types of cannabis products on the market today. It’s Your First Time Trying cannabis for the first time is equal parts exciting and intimidating, especially for people who are surrounded by their cannabis-friendly friends. Edibles provide first-timers and newbies an easier introduction to cannabis’s effects, limiting or completely minimizing any embarrassment they might otherwise experience. Different Absorption Method Smoking THC, THCa, or other cannabinoids means they are absorbed directly into the bloodstream, then circulate through the rest of the body. This may cause a delay in the time you smoke and feel the effects. Contradictorily, the THC from edibles is absorbed through the digestive tract, then the bloodstream, meaning users feel its effects faster (as we’ll discuss below) and more intense effects. When you cannot wait to get blazed, you want edibles by your side. Taste Great Perhaps a bit partial to the Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cannacookies, we still enjoy the delicious, rich flavors packed into most edibles we’ve tasted. (Yes, we’ve sampled a few bad edibles over the years!) Knowing the reward soon ahead after consuming a canna cookie maybe intensifies the already-delicious flavor. Grandma really outdid herself baking these sweet treats! It is pretty hard to resist a tasty sweet treat, especially when so many options beg to be devoured. Knowing there’s extra love baked right inside is the peer pressure needed to gobble up the treat. Lasting Effects Experts agree that while the effects of edibles take longer to kick in compared to smoking cannabis, they also stick around quite a bit longer. Yup, users may very well feel the euphoric effects from edibles longer than if they smoked a joint of flower. Edible users should familiarize themselves with the effects of edibles and avoid making big plans until they know how it affects them and how long the effects will last. Monitoring dosage is so easy with edibles and will become a second-nature habit in no time. Consume Anywhere No one in your family, work crew, school or college campus, or social club will bat an eye when you open a mouthwatering chocolate chip cookie and gobble it up. Little do they know, this cookie is not the ordinary grab out of the bag. It’s loaded with THC, CBD, and other cannabinoids that soon help you relax and unwind as it elevates your mind. Edibles are perfect for people who appreciate discreteness or need help easing their minds in social situations that might otherwise feel uncomfortable or intimidating. Liven up any Holiday Gathering or Party Presuming your family is cannabis-friendly, edibles make every holiday gathering a little more exciting. Let’s face it: getting together with all those aunts, uncles, cousins, and other family members can be a bit nerve-wracking. When edibles are served, everyone can chill and enjoy one another’s company. Plus, with so many edible options, from rice crispy treats to Snickerdoodle Canna Cookies, there’s enough variety to go around to satisfy all the different taste buds of people in your family. No Smoke Smoking cannabis or THCa, especially with friends or in large groups, can turn a living room, bedroom, or basement into a smoky-filled space envied by every dive bar in town. Edibles like the Chocolate Chip CannaBrownie Cookie allow consumers the opportunity to enjoy the effects of cannabis without creating a bar scene inside their homes. Give Your Lungs a Break The benefit of “no smoke” is great for your lungs, too. Inhale…Exhale. Inhale…Exhale. The story of a cannabis consumer’s life. All that smoke can cause throat irritation and may cause you to pause a bit. When you want to feel the effects of THC but your lungs need a break, edibles are there. After consumers enjoy edibles a few times and experience the delicious goodness, they realize they can give their lungs a break without giving up the incredible feelings THC delivers. You always need edibles on hand to gobble up whenever the mood strikes. Endless Options Cannabis consumers can rotate their choices between Indica, Sativa, and hybrid versions of different strains, but the selection stops there. Why limit yourself to canna-goodness when there are so many ways to enjoy cannabis these days? If you tire of smoking cannabis flower, you can always light up THCa concentrates. We’re big fans of concentrates here, knowing the intense effects are one of a kind. It is the same way as edibles provide a unique, one-of-a-kind user experience. Plus, switching up the sweet treats is pretty easy. Switching treats, flavors, and doses ensure a new user experience and results every time. Edibles Make Great Gifts Buying a gift for a cannabis consumer is never difficult. You always have endless gift ideas at your disposal, whether it is a birthday bash, Christmas, or other special occasions. Of the gift ideas, edibles are among the best. Everyone loves a sweet treat now and again, they wrap easily, and opening a package of cannabis-infused edibles like the great Coconut Chocolate Chip Canna Macaroons always makes the day a little bit better. Edibles: Your New Favorite Snack Edibles will soon become your new favorite snack if they haven’t already. The exciting benefits discussed above are among the biggest reasons cannabis consumers love them, and why you certainly will follow suit once you give edibles a try. However, you’ll likely discover even more incredible perks of consuming edibles. Don’t take our word for it and find out first-hand why edibles will soon become your new favorite snack.
