When I have some extra time available on a Friday evening or Saturday morning, I like making the trip to the dispensary.
I look forward to their daily deals, weekly specials and ever-changing selection of products.
While I enjoy checking out the colors and fragrances of the flower, various concentrates and topicals, my favorite is the edibles. Cannabis-infused edibles are one of the easiest consumption methods. I don’t need a lighter, ashtray, grinder, pipe, papers or any extra gear. There’s no smoke, odor, ash or any mess. Edibles are not only convenient and tasty but also one of the most potent delivery methods. Because the cannabinoids are absorbed through the digestive tract and metabolized by the liver, more THC is converted to usable forms by the body. The effects tend to be more intense than with other consumption options. It takes anywhere from twenty minutes to three hours for the effects to be fully realized. It’s important to start with a very small dose and wait a while before eating more, especially because the effects can last for up to six hours. I appreciate the wide variety of edibles available. My local dispensary includes an on-site bakery where they make cannabis-infused cookies, brownies and all sorts of baked treats fresh every day. I can also purchase gummies, hard candies, mints, chocolates and granola. I also enjoy cannabis-infused beverages. I sometimes buy cannabis-infused cooking oils or tinctures to make my own edibles at home. Tinctures can be added to just about anything. Because of the dropper applicator, I’m able to be very precise in dosing.
