Edibles are food and beverages infused with cannabis and can also take the form of capsules. They provide a healthy and discreet way to consume cannabis but have a longer and more intense effect than inhaled cannabis.
Edibles should be used with caution: “start low and go slow,” and avoid over-consumption.
- Each product is clearly labeled with its THC and CBD content in milligrams; both per package and per serving.
- Read labels and dose carefully. New consumers should start with 2-5mg of THC. Wait two hours to assess the full effect before taking more.
- Edibles can take from 30–120 minutes to take effect and the effect can last 4-12 hours. An empty stomach may decrease time to onset and increase intensity.
