With so many states legalizing recreational cannabis – many people are turning to edibles. Edibles have become an increasingly common way to consume marijuana.

“Edibles” is a general term that covers any food or beverage that’s infused with THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) and CBD (cannabidiol.)

If you’re thinking about trying an edible for the first time, there are some things you should know.

First, start slow – it takes longer t feel the effects of an edible than if you were smoking marijuana. It could take 30 mins to two hours to feel the effects.

Whatever you choose (gummy or candy) start with a small portion.

Lastly, you should also check and make sure recreational cannabis is legal in your state or whatever state you’re consuming the edible in.
