Although smoking remains the most popular way to consume the plant, edibles are quickly catching up. The term “edible” describes cannabis-infused foods and drinks, ranging from home-made brownies to pre-packaged cannabis gummies. For patients, edibles make daily dosing easy, consistent, and delicious. The effects of edibles differ from inhaled methods because the cannabinoids travel through the digestive tract. That means a more prolonged onset, but also a longer duration. For long-lasting medicinal benefits, many patients prefer an edible experience to smoking or vaping.
Why Everyone Loves an Edible
People from all walks of life love cannabis edibles. Why? Because they are so predictable. Every serving is pre-dosed, making sure you always know the journey before taking a bite. Plus, edibles come dosed to deliver exactly the experience you are looking for, big or small. Speaking of small, if you are interested in microdosing with THC, edibles are the perfect introduction. They often contain five milligrams of THC or less, the ideal amount for microdosing. Edibles are so beloved because they are consistent, discreet, and offer a delicious alternative to inhalable products.
A Different Therapeutic Approach
Smoking or vaping cannabis delivers the medicinal cannabinoids into the respiratory system for fast absorption. Within ten minutes or less, inhaled cannabis kicks in to provide therapeutic (or recreational) benefits. Edibles, on the other hand, are slow to come on, but longer-lasting. It takes some time for edibles to travel through the digestive tract for processing within the liver. Once received by the liver, the body transforms the cannabinoids into metabolites. This process means edibles can last for six hours or more and feel much different than a smoked product (depending on the dose and the patient). It’s a difference many patients appreciate.
