Why Cannabis-Infused Edibles Can Be Incredible

Some people get extremely giggly from cannabis-infused edibles. Some get extremely sleepy. Others find edibles to be a great way to help them get through their day and alleviate chronic pain. The point being is that edibles can treat each consumer differently. There are many factors that contribute to how edibles can affect a person. Some people don’t experience euphoria from edibles. And things like age can also play a role in how edibles affect you. During my younger years of my teens and twenties, if I got a hold of cannabis-infused edibles, they just made me sleepy. These days I get giggly and become pain-free. I have a high tolerance, so consuming 300 to 500 mg at once is no big deal to me. But for others, they would sleep for a weekend.

If you are new to cannabis-infused edibles, please heed my warning and don’t eat the entire thing at once. If you’re new to them, the rule of thumb for consuming cannabis-infused edibles is to start out very small. The average recommended dose of cannabis-infused edible is between 5 and 10 mg. It is advised to ingest that amount first and wait up to 2 hours so that you can understand how the cannabis you ingested will affect you.

The world of cannabis-infused edibles can be incredible. There are different varieties of edibles to choose from, and they come in different strengths. No need to worry, though; I’m getting ready to explain all of that. I’ll even give you some tips on how to save a little hard-earned cash on cannabis edibles.

Cannabis-Infused Edibles Come in Many Varieties

Cannabis-infused edibles come in a variety of different flavors and textures. Cannabis-infused gummies, cookies, hard candies, and cake pops are extremely popular. All of these sweet treats are infused with different amounts of cannabis.

On top of these tasty treats, you will find cannabis-infused in a plethora of other products. Popcorn, hot sauce, honey, trail mix, and all kinds of other candies and items can be infused with cannabis. You are only limited by the food you love. Be warned, though, eating these cannabis-infused munchies is known to be a contributing cause to contracting a case of the munchies.

There are Different Strengths and Potencies

All cannabis-infused edibles are not created equal. They are not created in equal strength, that is. Some markets have low-dose or microdose edibles available in 1-5 mg doses. This means you could buy a 10 or 50 mg pack of gummies containing ten pieces of candy. Each piece would have 1 mg of THC or 5 mg of THC, depending on the overall strength of the package you purchased.

In most instances, cannabis-infused edibles are sold in 100 mg dosages and up. You will often find these dosages divided into ten equal portions containing 10 mg of THC each in a 100 mg package of edibles. It’d be wise to also make a point to ensure the strength of the edibles you’re consuming because a 1,000 mg candy bar can look just like a 100 mg candy bar.

Consuming cannabis-infused edibles is a great way to help alleviate stress and pain or to simply just relax. Many people prefer edibles over smoking flower or vaping because of the discretion. They can eat hard candy or a gummy, and no one is the wiser.

How to Save Money on Edible Products

Cannabis-infused edibles can get to be rather expensive. A 100 mg pack of gummies can set you back an average of $20. A 1,000 mg candy bar will set you back about $100. if you look around, you will find deals on these products. Typically, the best deals are found in locations in bigger cities. Small towns tend to have increased prices on these products.

Sometimes you can save money purchasing edibles by purchasing stronger strengths. For example, in dispensaries where I live, I can purchase a 100 mg pack of cannabis-infused gummies for $20 or I can buy a 500 mg pack for an average of $50. Honestly, though, the best way to save money on cannabis edibles is to make them yourself. You can decarb flower or concentrates and infuse them with oil to be used in cooking. You can also use THC distillate. This means you can infuse everything from your favorite cake all the way to ice cream, salads, or even steaks.

Take Caution When Consuming Cannabis-Infused Edibles

Cannabis-infused edibles can be a great way to enjoy a little relaxation or pain relief. Just remember to go low and slow. If you happen to consume too much, there are some methods to help alleviate the intense high. While it might feel like you need to go to the ER, chances are you’ll be ok if you just wait it out for a few hours. Start with small dosages and wait in between consuming to see how they affect you. After a couple of times of consuming cannabis edibles, you’ll be confident about the amount you need to get the job done. The last thing you want to do is get a major case of the giggles when you have a lot to do or, even worse, feel like doing nothing more than taking a weed nap.
