If there’s a single characteristic that weed users have in common, it’s their creativity. One such proof is the millions of ways people have consumed marijuana over the years. Okay, maybe not millions, but the real number is high enough to make a top 10 list of ways to consume weed that couldn’t even cover half of it. These methods most likely were created out of fun or necessity, or both.
Among these methods that range from silly (making pipes out of apples) to outright brilliant (transforming e-cigarettes to e-joints, pre-cartridge days) is a favorite that stoners from all sides of the spectrum enjoy: edibles.
Not all cannabis users smoke, so the invention of edibles has really done the non-smoking lot a good deal. But who do we have to thank?
A brief history of edibles
The earliest use of edibles dates back to far as the period where ancient civilizations thrived. Evidence points to the use of marijuana for medicinal and spiritual purposes, and it was also around this time that the first instances of food and drinks being infused with cannabis were recorded.
In modern history, we owe gratitude to Alice B. Toklas. Her 1954 cookbook included a recipe that detailed the use of “a bunch of Cannabis sativa” for brownies. The resulting dessert was the earliest form of the pot brownie as we know it today.
Edibles have since become more diverse and up to this day, we witness a plethora of different kinds for different tastes. In the meantime, let’s look at some of the most common types of edibles today.
Most common types of edibles
This list is in no way complete, since we’re pretty sure there’s got to be a lot more edible types that people from all over the world consume, but here are some of the most common ones that are not brownies or cookies:
- Oil Extracts
Oil extracts can be used for a variety of things, including baking and cooking. Some extracts can also be mixed into beverages and daily condiments for subtle consumption.
- Jellies and Gummies
Gummies are another favorite of the edible marijuana folks. They’re probably as famous as pot brownies and space cookies—basically the sweet, fruity alternative to the two.
THC or CBD candies are also a thing and they come in various forms, like chocolates, lollipops, candy bars, and soft candy, among others.
What are the benefits of edibles?
With all the possible ways cannabis can be enjoyed, why do you think people opt for edibles?
Well, as it turns out, there are fair reasons why (aside from easy consumption, of course), and we’re here to let you in on them.
- Zero smoke
Though the world is slowly opening up to the potentials that marijuana holds, individually, not everyone is as welcoming yet. The idea of being able to enjoy the medical and recreational benefits of cannabis without annoying or harming anyone else sure sounds great.
- Accurate doses
Edibles acquired from licensed sources are accurately dosed. This ensures a consistent experience each time you take an edible, and it’s perfect for when you have a routine that you don’t want to mess up—you know, with unpredictable durations and intensities that you most likely get when consuming cannabis through other methods, like smoking.
- Longer lasting
Although an edible can take more time to take effect, when you do start feeling it, it generally lingers longer than the effects you get from smoking or vaping cannabis because the body takes its time absorbing the THC or CBD from the canna-infused food stuff.
On average, the high can be felt for about 6-8 hours after intake, although in some extreme cases, the effects can last up to 12 hours. The actual duration depends on factors such as the type of edible taken, the taker’s age and gender, and their metabolism.
We can’t lie; these benefits are too great to pass up. But with so many options, how does one make the right choice?
