What are Edibles?
Edibles are a remarkably effective way of consuming and enjoying weed. They come in many forms, including food products, drinks and capsules. They can be used medicinally or recreationally, and are used to treat inflammation, anxiety, insomnia and more. They are also known to bring on profound feelings of relaxation, as well as stimulating creativity and states of euphoria.
The most common active ingredient in cannabis edibles is THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol). This is the main psychoactive ingredient in cannabis- the one that brings all of its delightful effects. (1) It is fat-soluble, so it can be dissolved in fats that can then be absorbed into the body upon consumption. This is why edibles are usually dessert items that involve oils and fats in their cooking process, though any food that can be prepared with butter or oil can be a cannabis edible with the inclusion of THC-infused fats.
Different Types of Edibles
Gummies and Chews
Cannabis-infused gummies and chews are a staple of the edible world. They come in practically as many varieties as normal candy, and they taste just as good. They are known as the most popular edible for a reason, as they can pack high levels of THC into their small and sweet packages.
The most iconic type of edible is undoubtedly the brownie. But that’s not the only scrumptious edible confection available. Nowadays you can find cannabis-infused cookies, chocolate bars, muffins- you name it. If you can bake it, there’s probably a cannabis-infused version out there that will leave you feeling euphoric and full.
Cannabis that you can drink? We really are living in the future! THC beverages come in a variety of forms, from soda to tea. You can even find cannabis-infused beer in some dispensaries. When you want to get elevated but you’re not very hungry, a tasty THC beverage could be just what you need.
Mints and Hard Candies
Mints and hard candies are a delightfully simple way of consuming THC. Despite what you might expect, these tiny treats can hold a high amount of THC without tasting like the bottom of a grinder! This is because edible mints and hard candies are commonly made with THC distillates rather than cannabinoids or terpenes. Because you typically enjoy mints by keeping them in your mouth as they dissolve, the THC content is absorbed directly into your bloodstream through your tongue and cheeks. This can allow you to feel the effects quicker than by normal digestion.
THC-infused Cooking and Baking Oils
Perhaps you want to make an edible out of a food that’s never been done before, or you think you can beat the bakers at their own game. With THC-infused cooking and baking oils, you can make your own edibles! When you use cannabis-infused butter or oil, you can make your edible exactly the way you want it while having precise control over the dosage.
Cannabis Pills and Capsules
Probably the most no-frills cannabis experience available, cannabis pills and capsules offer a way to get medicated as easily as popping a multivitamin. They provide a remarkably discreet method for THC-induced elevation, and are usually zero calories. But the small size and simplicity of cannabis pills and capsules do not reduce the opportunity for potency, as they come in a variety of strengths.
Benefits of Edibles
Edibles are a wonderful way to enjoy cannabis. They come in many forms, so there’s plenty of exploring to do. You can try eating an edible cookie, drinking THC-infused soda, or simply swallowing a THC capsule. Edibles bring a sense of fun, adventure and enjoyment to weed consumption, so if you’re a foodie who loves weed, edibles are a meeting of worlds you never knew you needed. When you’re craving a delicious snack and a bit of relaxation to boot, you can achieve both simultaneously with one of our delectable edible treats.
One of the best benefits of edibles is that you don’t need to inhale any smoke or vapor. If you want to get elevated, there’s no need to remember a lighter. All it takes to get your dose of high-grade THC or CBD is to chew a brownie or pop a mint in your mouth! With edibles you don’t need to deal with the smell of weed smoke following you around. You don’t need to worry about nosy neighbors judging you, either. When you want to feel the electric effects of cannabis, you don’t need to step outside, or worry about the upholstery in your car.
General Benefits of Cannabis Consumption
The benefits of cannabis itself are as incredible as they are commonly-reported. Everybody knows the common side effects of weed- you giggle a little more, music sounds a bit better, and food becomes miraculously more delicious. But having a little fun is not the only perk of cannabis consumption. THC can reduce feelings of discomfort and anxiety, as well as encourage falling and staying asleep. (2)
The Best Way to Use Edibles
Having an enjoyable experience on edibles is all about dosage, and the right dosage varies from person to person. If you’ve never taken edibles before, or if it’s been a long time since you’ve enjoyed the effects of cannabis, you will want to start with a small dose. Unlike other forms of edible medication, the effects that edibles can have on your body and mind are relatively unpredictable.
How Much Should I Take?
The standard dosage is 10 mg, though we recommend starting at half or even a quarter of that. If you like the way you feel on a lower dose, you can always try more and let our premium product take you on a journey like no other!
Once you’ve eaten your edible, it should take an hour or two to feel the effects, depending on your metabolism. If you want to feel the effects as soon as possible, try taking the edible on an empty stomach. Be careful, though, as an empty stomach can heighten the effects as well. You’ll want to make sure that you’re in a comfortable, safe space when the edibles kick in. How long you will feel the effects of the edible also depends on your metabolism. They typically last for 5-6 hours.

How Much Do Edibles Cost in DC
What are edibles?
Edibles are consumable products, such as food products like brownies, that contain active cannabinoid ingredients. The most common cannabinoid ingredient in edibles is tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), though they may also contain cannabidiol (CBD) or a combination of the two.
How long do edibles take to work?
How long it takes to feel the effects of an edible depends upon the method of consumption, what you’ve had to eat beforehand and how fast your metabolism works. Edible mints, which are absorbed through your mouth and directly into your bloodstream, will work faster than a baked good, which requires the process of digestion before your body will absorb the THC.
In general, it takes one to several hours to feel the effects of edibles, and they typically last for 5-6 hours.
How much THC is in edibles?
Edibles come in a wide variety of potencies. They are beloved for being able to pack a punch of potency in a convenient means of consumption. Usually, edible packaging will include information about how much THC is in one serving. A typical dosage for one serving of an edible is 10mg of THC. It is important that you get to know how edible cannabis affects you before you dive into higher potencies.
Can you taste the marijuana in edibles?
Some edibles do taste like marijuana. However, many forms of edibles are made with THC distillate, which has no flavor, so you only taste the food. If edibles are made with flower, cannabutter, or oils that contain terpenes and flavonoids, you will be able to taste the marijuana flavor. How much you taste the marijuana depends on the potency and the other ingredients and flavors involved.
