Also known as “Medibles” is a term coined for “Medicinal Edibles,” more specifically toward Cannabis-infused edible products. Basically anything one can eat can now have a medicine added to it.
Why are medibles worth using? How do they help,
Eating cannabis takes longer to take effect (45 minutes – 1 hour), can last up to 6-12 hours. It is great for long term pain relief.?
As each persons body is individually different from anyone else, including ones EndoCannabinoid System (ECS) the majority agree that cannabis edibles are “more potent” than other means of consumption (smoke or vape therapy). This is because delta 9- Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is converted to 11-hydroxy-tetrahydracannabinol (11-Hydro-THC) via the liver. This is a completely different cannabinoid compound.
Remember, one can always eat more… not less! So start small and wait up to 2 hours before ingesting more. The effects can come on slow and then what would seem like out of nowhere could hit you all at once. If someone “overdoses” by taking more than expected… Some may have an overwhelming feeling of paranoia that they may even feel like one may die… not trying to scare anyone because it is the purpose, but also not looking to hide other opinions. Luckily, keep in mind that the LD50 (lethal dose) of cannabis has not been reached yet in known human trials and recorded history ever. This is why it is nice to have a lab-tested product that can give you a better guideline of how much is in your dose. Keep in mind it is a “guideline” some labs even from “legal States” are off and as mentioned above, each person is different so a 10mg THC cookie will effect you different than someone else.
