Cannabis Edibles

From pot brownies to modern weed gummies, there’s an edible out there for everyone.

Edibles in a Nutshell

Introduction to Edibles

The dog days of weed prohibition aren’t far behind us, but in a short time, cannabis-infused edibles have become a key product of the legal market. Homemade pot brownies that send you to outer space for hours can be a blast for the old-school canna lover. Still, today’s weed world offers a broader range of dosages and forms of edible cannabis, from micro-dosed gummies to super chill CBD chocolates.

A weed edible is any food infused with cannabis or cannabis-derived compounds, most often in cannabutter or cannabis oil. When weed is digested instead of inhaled, its cannabinoids go to the liver through the bloodstream. When the liver metabolizes cannabinoids, it creates a delayed effect that’s more potent and long-lasting than smokable cannabis.

Benefits of Edibles

Though they’ve historically been known for high-powered, unpredictable effects, today's edibles tend to come moderately and precisely dosed, making their benefits more accessible to a broader range of consumers. If you’re adding cannabis into your daily wellness routine, you can take a 5 mg CBD gummy or low-dose THC mint just as conveniently as your other daily supplements.

Most often separated into 5 mg or 10 mg pieces or sections, common edibles like gummies, cookies, and chocolates allow medical and recreational weed users to have greater control over dosing and use cannabis with the utmost discretion. Because edibles permeate the body with a deep, long-lasting high, they’re particularly popular as a sleep and general analgesic aid.

Using Edibles

Everyone's body metabolizes weed at its own pace. For most of us, finding the right weed edible and getting the correct dose requires first-hand experimentation. When you take an edible you've never tried before, it's best to take a small quantity (preferably 2 to 5 mg THC), then wait an hour or two to see how it makes you feel. With edibles, you often risk taking more than you need in anticipation of the delayed effect. So, only up the ante after you’ve felt your first dose.

Most edibles are infused with either live resin or cannabis distillate. Live resin is an extraction of the plant's full spectrum of cannabinoids and terpenes, all of which contribute to the bud's effect. The distillate is a concentration of one cannabinoid, usually THC or CBD, valued for its consistency and reliability. Whether they’re made using live resin or distillate, quality edibles from a trusted brand will deliver on their advertised dosage.

Choosing between them comes down to what works best for you. For a more nuanced high, seek out live resin edibles. If 100% consistency is the game’s name, distillate-infused might be your best bet.

Frequently Asked Questions on Edibles

How do I dose on THC edibles?

Edibles that include THC contain a precise dose, typically 5 mg or 10 mg. If you’re trying a particular edible for the first time, your safest bet is to start with a half-piece or a single piece (2.5 mg to 5 mg THC), then wait for 1 to 3 hours to gauge the effects before you take more. Remember the golden rule: you can always take more but can’t take less, so go easy when you first start.

How long will it take to feel an edible’s effects?

Edibles tend to have a delayed effect, usually after 45 minutes to 2 hours after ingestion.

What should I do if I get too high on edibles?

An overwhelming edible high can be uncomfortable, but it will typically pass within 24 hours. The best thing to do is keep calm and ride it out. Taking deep breaths, hydrating regularly, and eating lemons or other foods rich in terpene limonene can help mitigate a heavy dose of THC.

What should I look for on an edible label?

A proper edibles brand should showcase a label with the total THC and CBD count and how much individual pieces contain. It should also note what type of cannabis oil was used to infuse the product with (live resin, THC distillate, etc.) and include a link to the certificate of analysis. A COA from a licensed third-party lab will tell you whether the weed product is clear of all harmful contaminants.

How long should I expect to feel the effects of an edible?

Depending on product potency and the rate at which your body metabolizes, an edible high can last anywhere from 2 to 24 hours. However, 4 to 6 hours is arguably the most common range.

What if I don’t feel my edible kicking in after an hour?

Give it another hour. Everyone's body metabolizes THC at its rate, so it may take longer than average for your edible to kick in. You might also be one of those folks whose body metabolizes THC very quickly, which can limit your ability to get high from ingested cannabis.

What is an edible weed?

In the simplest terms, an edible is a food or digestible product infused with cannabis.

What are the distinguishing characteristics of an edible?

Any food that includes cannabis-derived compounds such as THC or CBD is considered a weed edible. Some of the most common forms on the market today are gummies, cookies, brownies, fruit chews, and beverages.

How much do edibles cost at a dispensary?

Depends on what you're looking for. Gummies, for example, can cost anywhere from $10 to $75, depending on the quality of ingredients, infusion process, and gummy count per package. Browse the edibles delivery menu on Bento for a better idea of how much your product of interest will cost.
