Order Cannabis Cookies
With the legalization of cannabis in 2018, marijuana edibles have begun to rise in popularity across the nation, especially now that you can buy marijuana edibles online in Canada. But what are they? What do you need to know before you buy and eat marijuana edibles so that you are comfortable and safe? What can you expect from eating a cannabis cookie? At MomCanada, we have the answers to help you decide if marijuana edibles are right for you.
What Is a Marijuana Edible?
Edible cannabis products are food items that have been infused with cannabis extracts. They come in a variety of forms from drinks to tasty treats like cannabis-infused cookies. They are a great and delicious way to reap the benefits and enjoy the effects of cannabis without the plant-like taste and avoid the potential health repercussions that inhalation of cannabis may present.
What You Need To Know
Before you make your first purchase of marijuana edibles, it’s important to understand some key pieces of information: the difference between THC and CBD and how to properly dose yourself without going overboard.
THC vs. CBD
Cannabidiol (CBD) is the most common cannabinoid in marijuana, and although it can affect both the mind and body, it has little to no intoxicating effect. It’s found in the trichomes, small crystal hair-like structures on the leaves and buds, on the flowers of many weed strains, including hemp. It may aid in the reduction of the effects of anxiety and physical pain, without intoxicating the mind.
Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is the one principally responsible for the psychoactive and intoxicating effects of weed consumption, of the more than 100 cannabinoids in the weed plant. THC is intoxicating and can produce a variety of intended effects, but consuming too much or choosing a product with a high potency potential can produce harmful or negative side effects, so considering the amounts of THC is crucial.
Sativa vs. Indica
Cannabis Sativa is the original strain of weed. Users have reported experiencing an energizing high (a high that gives your body energy without clouding your mind as much). Cannabis Indica is a substrain of Cannabis Sativa with users reporting relaxing high (a high that usually renders you couch-locked and cozy). You can also buy hybrids, which are a customized combination of both strains.
Marijuana edible products are much more challenging to determine a proper dose because it can take up to four hours for the marijuana to take effect; plus, the edibles are usually higher potency (they contain high THC or high CBD content). Not to mention that marijuana edibles are super tasty and it’s easy to forget not to eat the whole cookie or chocolate in one sitting. However, the effects last three to four hours longer than if you were to inhale CBD/THC products as some report feeling the marijuana effects for five to six hours after eating a weed cookie or brownie.
As with consuming any form of weed, the intensity and duration of its effects depend on several factors such as your weight and sex, how much food you’ve eaten that day and how quickly your metabolism works.
Medical Benefits of Cannabis-Infused Products
Marijuana has been used in the medical field for a number of different conditions. The most common use is to help manage minor acute and chronic pain. Part of its allure is that it is clearly safer than opiates because it is impossible to overdose on and far less addictive. Patients claim that marijuana allows them to resume their previous activities without feeling completely out of it and disengaged.
Marijuana is also used to manage nausea and weight loss and can be used to treat glaucoma. A highly promising area of research is its use for PTSD in veterans who are returning from combat zones. Many veterans and their therapists report drastic improvement and clamour for more studies, and for a loosening of governmental restrictions on its study.
How to Order Edibles Online in Canada
First, be sure to read the label or description of the cannabis-infused edibles. If you’re just starting out, you only need a low dosage so look for edible products that have low potency. You often won’t need to ingest as much to feel the effects of the weed and it’ll reduce the likelihood of overconsumption.
