My first trip to the cannabis dispensary, I was overwhelmed by all of the choices! I was especially excited by the selection of edibles.
I hadn’t realized there were so many chances above and beyond gummies and brownies; Along with dozens of flavors and brands of gummies, the dispensary offers all sorts of baked goods, hard candies, beverages, chocolates, capsules and even ice cream. I appreciate browsing the different types of cookies, crispy treats, peanut butter cups, mints, caramels, suckers, colas, lemonades, tonics, root beers, mocktails and cannabeers. While I’ve tried smoking, vaping and the several consumption methods, I appreciate edibles… There is no worry over the pitfalls of carcinogens, consuming them doesn’t require any special skills or extra gear. The process is straight-forward and doesn’t create smoke, ash, smells or mess, and eating an edible is wonderfully discreet. The products are safely packaged and clearly labeled. It’s not taxing to be accurate about dosing. Although most edibles include the flavor of cannabis, I like it. I also have enough experience with cannabis-infused edibles to understand the delayed onset of effects. After eating a single dose of an edible, I wait numerous hours before consuming more. It takes that long to fully realize the high sensation, however because the cannabinoids are absorbed through the digestive tract before entering the bloodstream, the effects are more intense and can last for quite a few hours. This proves especially helpful when treating chronic pain or trying to get a great night’s sleep. With edibles gaining so much popularity, there are no chances introduced all the time. There are CBD, hybrids, indicas and sativas in all potency and flavors that target any desired effect.
