If you want to consume cannabis but you don't want to smoke, edibles are a great alternative. When it comes to cannabis edibles, there are various types of edibles you can try.

Type #1: Gummies and Chewable Candies

Some of the most popular types of cannabis edibles are gummies and chewable candies such as fruit chews. It is easy to make gummy candies with cannabis; all you need to do is add THC or CBD oils to the candy mixture. Gummies can come in a variety of strengths based on how much oil is added to the mixture when it is made.

Type #2: Baked Goods

Another way to consume cannabis is via baked goods. You can enjoy cannabis infused in a variety of baked goods, such as cookies, macaroons, and puffed rice treats. With baked goods, usually cannabis butter is used. Baked goods tend not to be as strong as gummies, which usually are made with oils, which have a stronger concentration.

Type #3: Beverages

Another trend is infusing marijuana into drinks. With drinks, usually oils or butters are mixed with the drink, requiring one to mix the drink up in order to evenly distribute the marijuana throughout the drink.

Type #4: Sublingual

Fourth, you can use sublingual cannabis, which are basically liquid extracts that you take. Sublinguals are often called oils or tinctures. Tinctures are alcohol-based and look like little medical vials. You can control the number of drops of tincture that you get using the little dropper in the vial that comes with the container. Many people like sublinguals because you can easily control the amount you take and the delivery method looks similar to other medical products.

Type #5: Capsules

Finally, you can take pills or capsules, which gives you the feeling of eating an edible, allowing a longer time for the effects to take place and allowing for the effects to last for a longer period. At the same time, a capsule is very discreet and can be taken without anyone knowing that you are consuming cannabis.

When it comes to eating cannabis edibles, it is important to remember that you are not going to feel the effects right away. It can take a while for your body to start digesting the edibles and for you to start to feel the effects of the dosage. With edibles, you should take your time, since you will feel the effects for hours. If you are not sure what you want to try, talk to the budtender at the dispensary about your needs, and they will match you with the right products.
