A Quick Bite on Edibles

By: Brittany Chafee

Let’s talk all things edible! Except for panties – at least not today. In the past few years, cannabis-infused eats and treats have made a huge wave in the cannabis market. While you’ll still find the old reliable pot brownie at your local dispensary, you’re now bound to find an assortment of candies and beverages that’ll tickle your taste buds and your brain. From taffies, mints, and gummies to sodas, coffees, and “mocktails” – the marijuana menu is endless. You can literally create any simple or gourmet cannabis concoction you crave with an infused oil, butter, or ghee. And for all the bacon lovers out there, I’ve even met a girl who infuses bacon fat for some of her recipes (sorry ladies and gentlemen, she’s not single).

If you ever find yourself wanting to get creative in the kitchen and infuse some flower, the most crucial step is to decarb it. Decarb is short for decarboxylation which is the process that activates the THC/CBD in the cannabis flower. See, raw cannabis starts out with THCa/CBDa and doesn’t have any psychoactive effects – hence why just eating.the flower won’t do much but get weed in your teeth. Totally a waste and no fun! Cannabis has to be burned or heated to a certain degree for the desired effects to take place. So, heat the little “a” away in THCa and have yourself a better day. Poetry.

Now, edibles can be tricky when it comes to consumption. Since everyone metabolizes what they ingest differently, results can absolutely vary. The key to an enjoyable edible experience is to start slow and small. Take note of how your mind and body feel before consuming cannabis in any method, but especially with this one. Try to be aware of any changes you might be feeling. If after 90 minutes you have no desired effect setting in, then try another small portion of whatever you’re consuming and wait it out. Seriously…wait…it…out.

Though edibles are a tasty way to medicate, they aren’t for everyone. Effects can last anywhere from two hours all the way up to 12 hours or more depending on the dosage. If you find yourself too high for too long stay hydrated, grab a healthy snack, and get artsy in that adult coloring book you haven’t had time for. You’re gonna be juuust fiiiiine. On the other hand, some people never feel effects from eating cannabis no matter how high of a dosage they consume. This is due to a deficiency in the enzyme that breaks down THC in the body. Luckily you can still explore other consumption methods such as sublingual, vaping, smoking, or even suppositories (yes, I said suppositories) and find what works best.
