What is cannabis edibles
A cannabis edible, also known as a cannabis-infused food or simply an edible, is a food item (either homemade or produced commercially) that contains decarboxylated cannabinoids (cannabinoid acids converted to their orally bioactive form) from cannabis extract as an active ingredient. Although edible may refer to either a food or a drink, a cannabis-infused drink may be referred to more specifically as a liquid edible or drinkable. Edibles are a way to consume cannabis. Unlike smoking, in which cannabinoids are inhaled into the lungs and pass rapidly into the bloodstream, peaking in about ten minutes and wearing off in a couple of hours, cannabis edibles may take hours to digest, and their effects may peak two to three hours after consumption and persist for around six hours. The food or drink used may affect both the timing and potency of the dose ingested
Based on what type of cannabinoid your edible contains, you’ll feel different effects when consuming it. Higher THC edibles typically have a more intoxicating or psychoactive effect. Edibles with greater levels of CBD cause less of a “high,” but may make you feel relaxed and less anxious
Weed edibles are cannabis-infused food and drinks. They can take many different forms, ranging from breath mints, candies, and chocolate to savory snacks and even ice cream.
But not all cannabis-infused edibles contain the same active ingredient (or cannabinoid). As with all cannabis products, edibles usually fall into one of three main categories:
Edibles containing a balanced amount of both THC and CBD
THC and CBD are the primary cannabinoids(active ingredients of cannabis) most people know about. But edibles may also contain other minor cannabinoids, like CBG, CBN, or THCV, depending on what’s allowed in the state where they’re sold.
