When medicating with edibles, it’s important to remember that ingesting marijuana has significantly different effects smoking it. When smoking cannabis, effects are usually felt within the first ten minutes, and may last from 30 minutes to 3 hours. But when eating your cannabis edible treatments, it may take anywhere from 30 minutes to 2 hours to feel the effects, and the effects may last up to 8 hours. When medicating with edibles, start by eating a small amount and wait 45 minutes to an hour to feel the full effects before ingesting any more. In order to medicate with marijuana, you must comply with your state’s specific laws.
Whether with freshly brewed coffee in the morning, a mid-afternoon treat or a late night snack, our infused brownies are sure to be the ‘HIGH’ note of your day.
