Medical Marijuana Edibles– What to Know
There are so many ways to consume medical marijuana, and the list of options continues to grow as technology evolves. One particular method of delivery for cannabis is becoming increasingly popular: edibles.
You may have heard of cannabis edibles, but many people think of brownies, cookies, or gummies when they think of edibles. The reality is, anything can be made into an edible. They even have edible soft drinks now!
Although medical marijuana is not yet legal in Wisconsin, it is inevitable that it will be at some point. When the state’s medical marijuana market becomes operational, you should be aware of the different delivery methods of cannabis that will be available to you.
Edibles are popular because they are more discreet than smoking or vaping marijuana. They also tend to have stronger effects than smoking, and their effects tend to last longer for most people.
Edibles are fantastic for general pain relief as they last anywhere from 4-10 hours, making them a popular choice for those suffering from chronic pain. They can also help treat a poor appetite or weight loss.
What to Consider Before Taking Edibles
Cannabis edibles are a great option for many people, but there are some things to consider before you decide to take one.
First of all, edibles can take anywhere from 30 minutes to 2 hours to kick in. For this reason, many people think they do not feel anything and take more, leading to a long-lasting high with strong effects.
The most important thing to do when taking an edible is to wait at least an hour before taking any more. You can always take more, but you cannot reverse the damage if you take too much.
Also, if you plan to take an edible you should have nothing scheduled for your entire day. It is a good idea to make sure you will not need to drive or do anything important if you plan to take an edible.
