This week’s recipe is for the most popular edible marijuana treatment of all—pot cookies. When medicating with marijuana, remember that ingesting marijuana has significantly different effects than when smoking cannabis. The effects from smoking cannabis are usually felt within the first ten minutes and the effects may last from 30 minutes to 3 hours. But it may take anywhere from 30 minutes to 2 hours to feel the effects of ingested cannabis, depending on how full your stomach is, and the effects may last for 2-8 hours. If you are inexperienced with edibles, start by eating a small amount and wait 45 minutes to an hour to feel the full effects before ingesting any more.
