FAQ - Edibles

Q1: What are edibles?
 Edibles are food products infused with cannabinoids, such as THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) or CBD (cannabidiol), extracted from cannabis plants. They provide an alternative way to consume cannabinoids compared to smoking or vaping.
Q2: How are edibles different from smoking or vaping cannabis?
 Edibles provide a smoke-free and discreet way to consume cannabinoids. When you smoke or vape cannabis, the effects are usually felt within minutes, while edibles take longer to kick in but can have a more prolonged and intense effect.
Q3: How are edibles consumed?
 Edibles are ingested orally, just like regular food. They come in various forms, including cookies, gummies, chocolates, beverages, and more. After ingestion, the cannabinoids are absorbed through the digestive system, metabolized by the liver, and then enter the bloodstream.
Q4: How long does it take for edibles to take effect?
 The onset of effects from edibles can take anywhere from 30 minutes to 2 hours, or even longer, depending on factors like metabolism, the content of the edible, and individual tolerance. It's crucial to start with a low dose and wait patiently to avoid overconsumption.
Q5: How long do the effects of edibles last?
 The effects of edibles can last much longer than smoking or vaping, typically between 4 to 8 hours or even more, depending on the dose and individual factors.
Q6: Are edibles legal?
 The legal status of edibles varies by region and country. In some places, they are legal for both medical and recreational use, while in others, they may be restricted to medical use only or prohibited entirely. It's important to understand the local laws and regulations.
Q7: Are there different types of edibles?
 Yes, edibles come in a wide variety of types and flavors, including candies, baked goods, beverages, capsules, and more. Some are specifically formulated to contain THC, CBD, or a combination of cannabinoids.
Q8: What are the potential benefits of using edibles? 
Edibles may offer benefits similar to other forms of cannabis consumption, such as pain relief, relaxation, and anxiety reduction. Some users prefer edibles for their longer-lasting effects and lack of smoke or vapor.
