In this blog on weed edibles, we will dive into everything you need to know about cannabis edibles and where to get the best deals for them!
First of all, what are weed edibles?
According to Medical Marijuana Inc., ‘marijuana edibles’ (or weed edibles or cannabis edibles) are defined as:
‘Cannabis-infused food products that offer delayed (yet extended) effects. Offering a tasty alternative to smoking or vaporizing cannabis, edibles are food and beverages infused with cannabis.’
This means a cannabis edible can be anything— your favourite foods, drinks, desserts, or whatever— the only requirement is that it must be infused with cannabis either directly (like gummy candies) or mixed into your food or drink (like brownies or tea).
In either case, edibles are fun to eat, fun to make, and here to stay.
Common Types of Edibles
There are almost unlimited ways to infuse cannabis into foods and beverages.
Today, with weed being legal in Canada, many companies have started to make a line of ready-made edibles in all sorts of shapes, sizes, flavours, textures, colours, etc.
Here is a quick list of the most common types of weed edibles on the market today:
- Hard Candies
- Chewy Gummies
- Brownies and other baked goods
- Capsules and tinctures
- Pop and energy drinks
- Coffees and teas
- Ice Cream and Milkshakes
- Other food such as pizza, trail mix, chips, sauces, dressings, etc
Edibles are making a bigger and bigger impact on overall cannabis sales due to their ease of consumption and long-lasting effects – both medical and recreational.
Which Edible Is Right For You?
Eating weed edibles and smoking weed have some similarities, but they are just as different. Just as many people have preferences for strains they like smoking, edibles come in different varieties, potencies, and flavours. The great thing about edibles these days is that they offer so much more than flower in variety and potency.
A 1-gram joint usually contains between 100-300 mg THC. On the other hand, Edibles can have as little as 2 mg THC and as much as 1000 mg THC— or even more!
Edibles also come in almost every shape, flavour, and form, so there will definitely be something to your liking.
Benefits of Edibles
There are also some health benefits that you might consider using edibles for:
- Zero Lung Damage: Edibles require no smoking that will be hard on the lungs.
- Anxiety: Cannabis, in general, can help reduce stress and anxiety, with edibles having a longer-lasting effect than smoking.
- Weight Loss: Some people binge eat or drink to deal with anxiety or stress. Since edibles already help reduce anxiety, they can also help people avoid those behaviours.
- Discreet: You can take edibles anywhere and people will just see you eating a candy, gummy, or whatever form it is. They won’t even know it’s cannabis-infused (unless you tell them!).
- Cancer Treatment: People having chemotherapy or other cancer treatments can use edibles to help with nausea and other side effects.
*Make sure you talk to your doctor to see if cannabis edibles are right for you.*
How will Edibles affect me?
While smoking cannabis will deliver a high almost right away (or within minutes), edibles take longer to give you a buzz— anywhere from thirty minutes to two hours.
If you’re wondering how much to take, that’s up to you and your tolerance level.
If you are brand new to edibles, start low and go slow and remember, edibles can take a while to kick in.
We recommend newcomers and those with low tolerances start with edibles containing less than 10 mg of THC.
Best Place To Buy Weed Edibles?
For a long time, cannabis was illegal, and edibles were harder to come by. Many people made their own brownies, cookies, or whatever else they wanted, simply because that was their only option. This is no longer the case.
Canada has now legalized cannabis and thus cannabis edibles, so there is no shortage of places to buy them – both online and in-store. And there is almost no limit to the variety of edibles and their flavours.
Adults are now like a kid-in-a-candy-store at the local dispensary or online store.
One thing to note is the government-imposed THC limit for edibles, which is 10 mg THC per package. That means if you buy a pack of weed gummies and there are ten gummies in the package, each gummy will only contain 1 mg THC.
At Xpressgrass, we believe that you should have the freedom to decide the strength of your edibles, and that’s why we offer much stronger edibles for the medical cannabis users that need them and the recreational users that love them.
That’s why we’ve made it incredibly simple and convenient to shop and purchase the edibles you’re craving.
Price of Edibles
The fact that cannabis edibles have such great flavours is usually what draws people to them. However, the price of edibles is another appealing aspect. Cannabis edibles are actually quite a good deal. Some cannabis-infused candies or gummy bears can be as low as $5!
There is a wide variety of edibles, so the price can fluctuate, but mostly they are very affordable. The other big draw is that the high lasts for a long time— much longer than smoking. This aspect makes cannabis edibles a great value buy!
