Cannabis edibles come in a wide range of shapes, sizes, and forms, from chocolate and beverages to gummies and cookies. This variety found in cannabis edibles enables you to find products that address specific needs or assist you when dealing with issues such as pain, stress, or sleep problems.

This edibles beginners guide will provide you with key information on edibles benefits, tips, and our best sellers with key descriptions to help you get started if you need a nudge in the right direction!


What are Cannabis edibles?

By now you might know that ingesting cannabis is not a new thing, you might be familiar with pot brownies or another popular form of edible like CBD gummies.

So in short we can say cannabis edibles are any ingestible form of food or drink  like baked goods, candies, water or soda that has been infused with extracted cannabis.

What's important to note is that edibles are a type of  delivery method for cannabinoids like CBD and THC to be able to reach your body ECS (endocannabinoid system).

Knowing this is essential to help you remember that different delivery methods take different amounts of time to reach your ECS, and that the effects of cannabis will vary depending on dosage and your body's physiology.

Overall, edibles are known to take between 40 minutes to 2 hours for an individual to feel the effects of cannabis.

The effects of CBD and THC edibles

When learning about the effects of CBD and THC edibles, it's important to remember that the main difference between these two cannabinoids is their psychoactive properties.

As mentioned CBD and THC effects will depend on the dosage as well as your body's makeup and tolerance to CBD or THC.

THC is known for its psychoactive effects due to its affinity to bind with the ECS (endocannabinoid system) receptor CB1.

CB1 is primarily found in the brain, where THC can affect memory, pain, and mood. Also according to studies when binding to receptor CB2 (commonly found in the peripheral nervous system), THC is able to deliver anti-inflammatory effects.

On the other hand CBD interacts indirectly with receptors CB1 and CB2, it has the ability to suppress enzymes that break down endocannabinoids ( the body's natural cannabinoids) thus helping when there is an EC deficiency.

CBD also interacts with non-cannabinoid receptors in the brain, such as dopamine, serotonin, and TRPV-1 receptors, showing positive effects with depression, pain, inflammation, stress, and sleep, among other issues.

Furthermore, CBD is well-known for its non-psychoactive effects; however, CBD edibles can be purchased with infused CBD spectrums found written in the product label as  full spectrum, broad, or isolate.

With the exception of THC, broad spectrum oil contains all of the other compounds found in the plant, whereas isolate contains only CBD.

Full spectrum CBD oil, on the other hand, contains all of the plant's terpenoids, flavonoids, and cannabinoids, as well as trace amounts of THC.

Infused full spectrum CBD oil products are in top demand due to the advantage they offer with the "entourage effect," which occurs when all compounds interact simultaneously providing broader benefits to the body.

Advice and Tips for Taking Edibles

Cannabis edibles are thought to be the easiest and most enjoyable way to benefit from CBD, THC, terpenes, and flavonoids.

As mentioned before, cannabis concentrates are the main ingredient in all edibles; knowing how they are extracted can also help you decide between the various products available.

Cannabis concentrates are obtained through one of the many extraction methods known (solvent or solventless) for example: ice water extraction, Co2, alcohol extraction, distillate.

Different extraction methods result in different types of cannabis concentrates:

  • Shatter
  • CBD oil
  • THC oil
  • Distillate
  • RSO (Rick Simpson Oil)
  • Phoenix tears
  • Canna-butter

You can read our ingredients tab from our online product to determine what type of concentrate has been infused in an edible.

Furthermore, the following list contains important information to help you make more informed decisions and reap the benefits of CBD and THC edibles:

  • Read the package dosing instructions carefully
  • Begin with a small dosage (suggested serving 5mg for beginners)  and slowly over weeks increase your dosage, until reaching desirable effects.
  • Keep track of your dosage and effects, this will help you greatly when deciding to increase or change products.
  • To increase absorption, choose edibles rich in fat or oils, like CBD gummies with MCT oil or cannabis chocolate. According to some studies, CBD and THC's lipophilic structure speeds up digestion when consumed with fat-rich foods.
  • Be patient. Wait for effects to be felt (up to 2hrs), when it comes to edibles like CBD gummies or THC chocolate, it is very tempting to continue eating, leading to undesirable effects when taking too much.
  • If you are taking edibles for health purposes avoid mixing with alcohol. Research shows that alcohol could increase the amount of THC in the bloodstream, leading to a significant “high”.
  • As a beginner it is best to stay in a comfortable space.
  • Make sure you store and keep your edibles out of reach from children.

Last but not least we highly recommend if taking CBD or THC edibles for health purposes, it is best to consult your healthcare provider first and, if you are on medication, make informed choices for the best approach for your health; some medications should never be combined with CBD or THC.

How are cannabis edibles made?

If you wonder how edibles are made, know that in the industry of edible cannabis products, homogenized ingredients are a standard, this helps companies ensure they cater even dosages while also using the best cannabis concentrates and top ingredients for the ideal blend.

Also companies ensure installation with high-end equipment to be able to design a wide range of edibles to meet a variety of needs, along with food grade ingredients, and sanitary and safety procedures to provide quality products.

The skill required to create delicious recipes that are truly a treat to taste while providing accurate dosages is what makes cannabis edibles worth a try.

This makes edibles the top tasty option to begin supplementing with CBD or THC.
