Marijuana edibles are food items made with marijuana or infused with marijuana oils. Edibles may be an alternative to smoking or vaporizing marijuana. Edibles come in many forms, e.g. brownies, cookies, candies, including animal or fruit-shaped gummies, suckers and chocolates, and as beverages.
Why Do Edible Marijuana Products Seem Stronger?
The amount of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the main psychoactive ingredient in marijuana, can vary in edible marijuana products. This makes it harder to control how much THC is consumed. The amount of THC in homemade marijuana edibles can vary even more. Many users can be caught off-guard by the stronger potency and long-lasting effects of edibles.
Important Safety Guidelines:
Start with a single 10mg (of THC) serving or less;
Don’t take more until you have waited at least 2 hours; edibles are slow-acting;
Keep edibles far away from children and pets!
