How to consume cannabis edibles.

What are cannabis edibles?

Cannabis edibles are food items made with marijuana flower or concentrates. As of advances in the cannabis culinary industry, you will find a wide selection of high quality brownies, candy, chocolate bars, cookies, beverages, and treats that provide the desired marijuana effects.

How Edibles Work

When you eat marijuana edibles, your body has to digest and process the HTC before you will feel high. The process can take anywhere between 30 minutes to 3 hours to feel the full impact.

What are the benefits of edibles?

Not many people like to smoke or vape cannabis, so consuming marijuana infused foods looks like a good option for cannabis community.

The disadvantage of consuming cannabis-infused edibles is that they’re absorbed through the digestive system, which means the effects may take hours to set in and the potency of effects gradually increases. Unlike smoking or vaping, you can get the full impact in 15 minutes.

How long do the effects of edibles last?

Many factors influence how long edibles last, including dose, tolerance, metabolism, and gender. In general, the high from edibles lasts anywhere from 4-12 hours, but there are a lot of factors that can affect the duration and strength of the high.

What is your dose?

Every person is different so make sure you are taking it easy when you consume the edibles for the first time. Knowing your body is key when selecting the right dose for yourself.

How to Smoke Cannabis Flower

Traditional cannabis flower smoking is the most common and favored method of consumption around the world.

Flower remains to be a popular choice for its flexibility and versatility by offering you numerous methods of consumption. You can smoke the flower using a pipe, a bong, or by rolling it into a joint or blunt.

One of the best benefits of smoking flower is its quick “high” affect you will start feeling immediately.

Smoking Methods

Although most of the cannabis smokers roll their flower into a joint to smoke, there are other ways to enjoy cannabis flower.

Rolling Papers

One of the most common ways to smoke cannabis flower because  the only thing you need is rolling paper (available in most convenience stores) and the flower.

Rolling a blunt is basically the same as rolling a joint, but the paper itself is made out of cigar paper and contains nicotine.

Hand Pipes

These are possibly the most common smoking devices available today. You simply fill the pipe and light up. Great for portability and travel.

Water Bongs

They come is different variations but the consumption method is the same. You fill up the bong with water, which filter particles from the smoke while cooling it down.

Homemade One-Time Use Devices

You can use your creativity to make a smoking device at home. One of the classic ones is to use a fresh apple to enjoy your smoke.
