What are Edibles?
Cannabis Edibles are any food that has been infused with Cannabinoids, typically THC and/or CBD. You can find them in a wide variety of products, but most often, they come in the form of a dessert. Popular variations include Brownies, Cookies, CBD Chocolates Bars or Gummies. In reality, any recipe that calls for oil or butter can be made into a Cannabis Edible.
The body processes Cannabinoids differently when ingested rather than inhaled. As a result, the effects are unique. When ingested, Cannabis is absorbed through the digestive tract and into the liver. Even though this delays the effects, it drastically increases potency and duration. In some cases, Edibles can take up to an hour to take effect and last upwards of 6 hours.
How to Dose the CBD Distillate Chocolate Bar
Everyone experiences Cannabis differently, and this is no different for Edibles. However, due to their delayed onset and extended duration, a little trial and error are required.
First, read the packaging to understand the dosing information. Edible packages should always include milligram dosages by serving and by package.
Second, whether or not you have previously eaten can play a critical factor. For example, eating an edible on an empty stomach will cause the effects to onset much more rapidly than someone who has recently eaten or has a full stomach.
A good general rule to follow for dosing Edibles is to start with a single dose of 1 to 5 milligrams of CBD. Then, after ingesting, give yourself 2-4 hours to gauge the effects before eating any more.
