Different Types of Edibles

Medical cannabis edibles come in a variety of forms, including gummies, mints, capsules, and beverages. Edibles are being made as pure THC, CBD or hybrids that contain a combination of different cannabinoids. Beverages are becoming increasingly popular as well and can be mixed with any drink of your choice.

Effects & Dosage

When consuming medical cannabis edibles, it is important to understand how they affect your body and how much you should consume. The effects of edibles can take anywhere from 30 minutes to two hours to kick in and often last for several hours. The amount of THC (the psychoactive compound in cannabis) that an edible contains will vary depending on the product, so it is important to read the label carefully before consuming any edibles. It is also important to start with a low dose (5-10 mg) and increase gradually over time if needed.

Safety Considerations

When consuming medical cannabis edibles, there are several safety considerations that must be taken into account. For example, it is important to store them out of reach of children and pets as they may contain high levels of THC which can be dangerous for young children or animals if ingested accidentally. Additionally, edibles should not be consumed while driving or operating heavy machinery as they can impair judgment and reaction time. Finally, it is important to speak with your healthcare provider before consuming any medical cannabis products as they may interact with other medications you are taking or have contraindications for certain conditions such as pregnancy or breastfeeding
